Re: CPR re-run tons of parts

Si personne en veut, il va falloir qu'ils ameliorent la qualite et/ou qu'ils vendent les plastiques individuellement pour qu'on remplace seulement ceux qui sont irrecuperables.
As-tu pense a garder quelques plastiques et demander un remboursement partiel?

Re: Need Help Debugging Power Supply and Shaker

Before proceeding with troubleshooting transistors or component replacement any further - are you saying the shaker motor turns weakly when activated, but strong if you ground pin CN12P9 on the MPU? If so, this 'smells' like improper bias to me, e.g. the pre-drive transistors common return line mig...

Re: Need Help Debugging Power Supply and Shaker

The manual shows Q4 on PPB board but that should be Q2. I connected CN12P9 on the CPU board to ground and the shaker turns. I believe that means the PPB board is probably fine. I took the CPU board out and tested Q23 and it seems fine though it could fail under load. R66 is fine also. I tried testin...

Re: Need Help Debugging Power Supply and Shaker

I tested the resistor and it reads 9VDC on both ends. Can you really produce 12VDC from 9VAC with that simple circuit? I took out the shaker board and the resistor had a broken solder under the board. I fixed that and now the motor turns but it is very weak. I only have one machine with a shaker, so...

Re: Need Help Debugging Power Supply and Shaker

I measure 20VAC between P10 and P11. About the same between P1 and P4 on the shaker motor connector. That seems far from the 9VAC pictured in the manual. Grounding J1P6/7 on the shaker board did not do anything. Similarly, grounding the pins on J2 also did not do anything. J2 is not pictured in the ...

Re: Need Help Debugging Power Supply and Shaker

Duh, I indeed measured in DC. I'll have to put the board back to measure it again. Yes, I tested all the fuses on the shaker motor board and the PS board. The 1/2 to 1 Ohm resistor is a large ceramic resistor on the shaker motor board and it reads 1.5 Ohm. I also tested Q23 in diode mode and it look...

Need Help Debugging Power Supply and Shaker

The shaker motor in my LAH is not working. After some debugging, I found I only have 0.35V on the Power Supply Board CN1P10 and CN1P11 when it's supposed to be 9V. Those pins are directly connected to the shaker motor board. There might be other problems but let's start with that one. The shaker mot...

I have not seen them but imdb and rotten tomatoes rate them around 81% which is high.
I heard it's the humor that makes the two deadpool movies different than ordinary super hero movies.

Re: Where to find Triple Thick?

That is fantastic, thanks for sharing! I bet there are a lot of people jumping for joy at this news - even if the loss of traditionally screened repros might be a negative to some out there. I can see this leading to a lot of machines that have been collecting dust finally getting the restorations ...

It's cheaper to PM because you will pay in $CAD.
Perfect timing. Just yesterday, I was wondering how to get a good scan of the decal showing how to lock the Data East head.
