Open Discussion / Re: Repair for a friend. Looking for opinions
« on: August 17, 2018, 05:03:19 PM »
Just saw this thread. Long story short, a few days ago an old work friend of mine who I keep in touch with were talking and she mentioned someone I knew 10 years and worked with at the same place just started working with her at her new place of employment. He was grumbling about a couple of pedals that don't work, one he tried to build, his one and only, and a DMM with Hazari he bought new. Long story short I agreed to fix the pedals. My plan is to charge nothing. He is not a friend of mine, just someone I knew and shot the breeze with for a few years at an old job. I'm meeting him for lunch.

My thoughts are that I just enjoy helping him out really. I also told him while I know I can fix his pedal he tried to build whether I can fix the DMM is another story altogether. I'm thinking about all the wrong things he could have plugged into it. So no promises there. Either way if he buys my lunch good enough. If he doesn't that's fine too. If he tries to offer to pay me I won't accept any money. I like Jimi's idea of just telling him to pay it forward in some kindness to someone. He's kind of a douchy guy at times so I'm not counting on it  :o
You had me up until the last sentence. Tread lightly and donít let him continue to throw projects your way.

Thatís really sharp. Iím digging the face plate, really speeds up the process. Is that just acrylic? You should whip up a tutorial on that.

2 words. Gorilla Glue.

My gorilla, Mr. Drummond, actually ran away a few months ago.
You must be devastated right about now. Can you describe him?

That's a beauty. I'm jealous, I've never been able to play an SG, the necks are too skinny and always have tuning issues. I play like I'm hanging on for dear life so the poor guitar doesn't stand a chance.
I have a faded SG, the neck feels rather chunky. Somewhere between a les Paul and a Ď63 Strat neck. Itís way different feeling than my teles. I wonder if the necks are more tapered on the P90 model.

Clear, up close pictures both sides of the board and off board wiring. Also, do you remember the jumpers?

A beer, a lunch. If the regulator wasnít that much, I wouldnít charge for that either. Ask him to pay it forward. Tell him he owes you a favor at a later to be named time.

Brian is a regular guy just like us. Super nice dude, and very friendly. He lives in TN, so you must be close by.

Jimilee, you are seriously observant. I only saw this stuff through the microscope. I reflowed all I found. Thx.
When my troubleshooting becomes troublesome, I will take a picture of the the solder and look at it enlarged. It helps.

There are several solder joints that look almost empty. Each joint should look like a silvery Hersheyís kiss. They should flow through the pad.Reflow and add where needed, then letís see where we are. If we go one step at a time instead of guessing, it will save a lot of time and effort.

There is either a short to ground, or a missing trace between the regulator and c58. The path goes through c58 and pin 1 of the pt2399 above it. You should have voltages on c44 and c48, theyíre all connected. Checking for continuity would be the easiest way to test, for me anyway.
