BYOC Green Pony - No sound
« on: February 12, 2017, 08:49:43 AM »
Just finished building the Green Pony. I get the LED status light to turn on when plugged in and sound through the pedal when bypassed, but when activated -- no sound.

I checked over my solders, and loose cables, all is good there. I tried it without the back on, and the back isn't the issue.

When i flip the toggle for the clipping toggle, the LEDs do not light up.

The IC chip for the charge pump looked like it wasn't seated, so I checked to see if it was and it was super hot. Finger burningly hot.

The instructions for the build do not have any instructions for seating the IC chips, but I looked at the picture and figured it out, I think. http://byocelectronics.com/greenponyinstructions.pdf

Should that charge pump IC be super hot?

I will be testing for continuity later today and see if there is anything else that might be the culprit.

Any other ideas?

The only time I've ever had really hot ic's is when I put the in backwards. Then they are garbage.
