repair vintage Editor?

I bought a really old school video switcher/ SEG. A Showtime Video Ventures model ..probably back from the 80s or early 90s. All buttons light up but darn if I can get a video signal to pass through the Coax inputs and outputs. Are there any places around that repair these old time switchers? Might just be something loose inside but if I open it up, i know all hell will break loose.

Generally, pro switchers are "simple" and repetitive. Not simple enough for me to fix of course, but reasonable if you can find a manual. And pro manuals are often service manuals, too. Can you post a pic?

Eehh, if it's this thing: https://books.google.com/books?id=XA...ntures&f=false
I take back what I said about 'pro' stuff, unfortunately.

Does 'coax' mean F-type connectors, or RCA, or BNC?

If its like the Ampex ACE editor, all your source signals will have to be synchronous with your reference.

Yes F type connector. Older consumer switcher from the 80s
