CT17 input problem

Post by norman ramsey » Wed Aug 03, 2011 4:51 pm

My CT-17 has an input problem. This is a follow up post.The 5.6 volt supply for the input indicator is not working. I think the source is on the FL828 board out of the cathode of D455. The voltage does not arrive at D410. I re-soldered the junctions around the components around the supply. The voltage came back up. I started re-assembly of the preamp by installing the FL828 then checking the voltage and to my surprise it was gone again. I would appreciate help with this problem. I was incorrect on my previous observations. As I have stated the led indicators on the input board work a while then quit. I am open to any suggestions.

Junk it! Actually I'd sell it for parts on eBay. There's many other options out there, some much, much better in my opinion. Oh, and WELCOME!! =D>
