We recently purchased a CONN Minuet electric

We recently purchased a CONN Minuet electric organ 540 from a thrift store. The lights all come on in the back but there is no sound. Any ideas on what we might want to look at first?

If you mean vacuum tubes istead of "lights" be aware that just because they light up doesn't mean they work.

MANY of them LIKELY are dual ones with two sections that both must be lit to work.

The starting point is to check power supply voltages.

You will have to look in your phonebook for a piano and keyboard repair place. Most of the schematics for home organs are unobtainable except to repair persons. If you can find a service manual on the internet it is very likely that you will have to pay for it and then you will need electronics troubleshooting skills coupled with specialty tools. You will have better results if you take it in to be serviced.
