Bah. Mom said she has a leftover Philharmonia ticket and asks if I want to go. On one hand I don't really like classical music, on the other hand when's the next time I'll have an opportunity to watch someone play cello with one hand?

There's a few knockoff watches on their site that I'm tempted to grab. For $75 they'll be crap I'm sure, but at least they look decently close to the $6k+ watches they cloned.

 

Still looking for a cheap enough knockoff of this beauty.

 

TAG Heuer TAG Heuer CARRERA Calibre 1887Automatic Chronograph43 MM

Meh, that looks a little too busy for my tastes, but I can still appreciate it. :D

 

$75 is still pretty high for a Chinese clone that will probably fall apart in a few days though...

@Boku Machi

 

just started the show.... wow, this is gloomy.

great mystery nevertheless.

 

If the same happened to me, I'd probably just try to get rich and famous instead of fixing everything.

 

btw, anyone know which Japanese dialect it is that ends sentences with べ (be) ?

Quality vs quantity argument, I guess?

 

 

Anyone reading the mango?

Just caught up, and I definitely like it.  Especially the wow.

Sooo, I need help from the electronically minded members here. I don't know if you guys remember the Schiit Asguard 2 that I got to fix and thought it was the potentiometer? Well I replaced the pot and lo and behold it didn't fix the problem. While examining the board I noticed this though:

 

Zoomed in:

Eeyeah that doesn't look right >.>

I don't think I could get a piece of wire in there to reconnect that point, nor do I think it would be a good idea to be honest.

So now that I know that's probably at fault, I'm looking for a replacement. This is all the info on the part:

 


Also, on a random note:

Dat moment when you have the same gun in real life as in the anime...

I'm sure given enough patience you could use a wire and bodge it back together. I've fixed SMD with wires lol

It's such a tight spot I don't think I could get my soldering iron in there though. I'd rather just replace it and avoid a fire since I assume this will be dealing with mains level voltage. :S

Looks to be a custom part number, even desoldering the transformer will be a pain without the right tools. Could you find any piece of wire that broke off?

 

It's relatively safe to bodge a wire in if a little nib of metal is still sticking out from the tranny, just make sure you check for shorted turns before you power on. A few ohms is fine, a dead short isn't.

 

You could remove a few of those caps for a bit more clearance to fit the iron in, but there might be an angle you could *just* poke through. Pretty horrific solder job from the factory, the joints look cold, and using an incorrect footprint is a bit dodgy.

 

Can you take a clear picture of the top side and underside of the whole PCB? We need to double check that the broken side is the secondary, and we should look for probe points for the positive and negative rails, to verify that one of them is missing from a broken secondary transformer tap.

Here's some photos I took of the PCB, hope these will be fine. If not I can take more with my DSLR tomorrow.

 

I think the footprint is correct, but according to the friend I bought this from, this amp was shipped via USPS and beaten around quite a bit in transit, that's probably why the transformer isn't quite centered and all those pins looked really messed up.

Ah okay shipping damage would explain it =P.

 

Have the transformer and mains IEC inlet away from you, I'd even cover it up with a placemat or some cardboard, nothing conductive!

Probe in such a way that makes it impossible to accidentally slip into the transformer/IEC inlet/power switch and touch anything live. Give it a few dry runs probing the points without anything powered on so you know where to place your hands. Watch out for that mains switch as well, cover it up!

 

 

You can use any ground point on the board, look for a convenient one or just use the one as shown. It should be the positive rail that's damaged, can't tell you what voltage it should be because the resistors are hiding behind those caps, maybe in the positive 12-20V mark, it should be stable (but it wont be from the damaged tranny).
