soundcraft 1600 and mx 70/16

Hey guys an girls, my names silva from New Zealand way down south, just thought id introduce myself, just bought a what the title says + a bunch of old tape and some not so old tape + sh*t load cabling etc, 1600 producer i think ,has the patch bay etc. got it home a week ago ,plugged it in, pluged in head ph and had a bit of hiss/ hum in right ear, left it pluged in for a week, opened it up tonight and put the vacum about and unpluged all the ribbon cables, gave a vacum over em, pluged em back in and hisss/ hum gone. stoked. + got the otari mx 70 with a cb 118 and a cb119. havnt had a good look over that yet but guy bought it off said it has had new heads
,(and few other bits replaced not to far back as these old things go)
came from radio nz origanally so been serviced pretty good. Going through cables etc there is a few bits missing so i can see some soldering in my near future. hence why i joined you fellas, no doubt be a few dumb questions coming your way, cheers for the anticipated help in advance.
