DCC900 only outputs white noise

Just received my DCC900 in the mail today, seller on eBay stated that it was operating as designed with a compact cassette, but was untested with a DCC. I’m rather new to the world of DCCs and may be doing something completely wrong here, but it produces the same output with an analog cassette as well.

The player only outputs white noise, whether I’m using a digital or analog cassette. Both L/R audio channels are maxed on the display as well. I’m all for fixing this as I got it for a very very good price. Any help would be appreciated.

You should start with replacing the 17 smd capacitors on the read-write and audio board. Usually that is the problem.
