@BangDead How is Design going? Looked at my 3.7 yet?
Should get soldering soon, need some stripboard, what i had left is not big enough...
Also 3.7.1 Coming soon. Anyone still with me?
If your sockets have the little holes through the center the common practice is to stick the LED's in the holes and wire them and their resistors in.
And its done, everything is wired up and double checked. When i plug it in, with a source active, nothing happens, no sound nothing glows inside the tubes, nothing at all. A little annoyed.
Is there any ways to check if the tubes are OK?
Checked conductivity between pin 4 and 5, and nothing.
EDIT: 9 and 4, 9 and 5 conducts
Some of the power supplies struggle a little to fire up a cold amp, so the power supply may cycle on and off a few times until the heaters get hot.
It takes the heaters more than a few seconds to get hot enough to warm the cathode sufficiently to begin emitting electrons, completing the circuit and allowing you to hear music.
