I should have posted how I did up the DIY headshells for spare carts. Here it is"
I get LPs from lots of sources. Ditch is but a small one. I normally buy large collections and sell what I don't like or need or I do Discogs...
Thank you - Very easy to do BTW. Here is how they look now:
Explanation by Bob Carver himself on how this beauty works in his own words starting at 28 minutes 50 Seconds here:
Thank you Lee - finally got around to doing the deed and the more I listen to it I have to say it was completely worth it:
Restoration complete, obey all further alarms!;)
Unless I get any further questions or advice I will consider this thread a wrap. Things...
Quick explanation/Progress video:
Holy smokes!:yikes: Changed out all the 725 and 1312 transistors and Pow! Works like a charm now - both channels are strong and sounding great....
Old thread I know but if always the left channel (like mine), any consensus on what it usually is just to Dave a whole bunch of trial and error...
Just pulled Q20 and off board it checks out as per (sorry hard to read and I already soldered it back in but good result as PNP transistor:
Here are the results of the Right side testing (note that Q20 and Q19 are not truly left channel according to the schematics)...
Well, got home from work and had a go at simply testing the left channel Transistors straight off the board. I thought it wouldn't hurt......
Thank you. Will do a screen capture when I get home from work. I do think I have a solid method. I have essentially ruled out the right channel...
Possible dumb question - using the Chinese tester in post #6 above, do I need to continue pulling the transistors to measure it properly to...
