    Yes, scarce indeed.

    When I started frequenting them, there were four I used to hit. One went all gung-ho with metal detectors and prospecting so now a waste of my time. Another went heavy into...

    Well, that high was short lived but good point.

    No more on this particular board but reviewing the parts list, there are some scattered around elsewhere.

    Well, encouragement so far. Put in that ceramic monolithic and resistor R27 stayed cool to the touch so thanks to one and all.

    Still blows me away that I looked for a C29 on the board so many...

    Needed some shrink tube so drove "into town" to get some. I should know better than to do that mid morning on a Saturday. An hour and a half round trip turned into 4.

    So, can I or should I replace a tantalum with an electrolytic? My understanding was that tantalum's were used where space was restricted. I happen to have some 35V 10uF electrolytic's on hand and...

    If it matters, C22 is brand new, I replaced it. Also tested (diode test function) both Q20 & 21 out of circuit which were OK.

    C29 baffled me. It is not included in the parts list and I could...

    All righty then - nothing ventured, nothing gained. I'll hook up that board completely over the weekend and see what happens. At least I can now bring up AC slowly so may avoid immediate cremations.

    Negative - not running. Nothing currently connected to that board at all except wires from the transformer.

    Would connecting only the shielded leads constitute running - or should I go ahead and...

    OK. Seems I have next to zero understanding of Windows. I had no idea that feature existed so had to Google it to see how to use it. I saved the images as jpeg's thinking that was as good as any. ...

    I'd love to do that but all I can access are PDF's of the service manual and if it's possible to isolate the page(s) containing the relevant schematic(s), I do not know how to do that.

    Dang. And the schematic only has those two voltages figures printed on it. 24 volts going into the resistor and 20.5 on the other side - which I physically measured at 13 volts.

    So high current...

    Resistor behavior

    This is not PL related but I've been trying to figure out why a 1 watt, 56 ohm wire wound resistor is heating up. It would be too hot to touch if I kept power applied.

    If you're OK with shipping it, give US Audio Mart a try. It's free, specialized and not as hectic as e-bay.

    Glen talked sense yesterday, suggesting a replacement board I saw on e-bay was the best solution so I bought it. Untested, but intact so a $30US gamble. Guess I'll see what happens with this thing...

    Ah, a geographically undesirable suggestion. Gotta say though, if I could live as far away from "urbanity" as you do and subsist, I'd be there in a heartbeat.

    Why not sandblast the bezels and have them chrome plated?

    Reading this thread has got me thinking about doing that. There's a U-Blast shop not far away.
  21. Schematic vs parts list

    For some reason I thought a schematic would be the more concise of the two. But I too have seen discrepancies comparing diagram with what was physically on a board. In that case though I attributed...
