Ok so the postie has delivered the main caps.

A 35v 33000 UF and a 25v 10000uf

I am replacing these as the originals had been causing issues around the machine and I was getting ALOT of humming.

Heres the newbies:

Around half the size of the originals.

Fitted:

[​IMG]

Powered her up and the hum is at normal levels but the machine has gone bat **** CRAZY!

[​IMG]

All kinds of strange crud on the screen and the sounds are overlapping each other and wrong! I didnt know this machine swore?

Now I couldn't see why the machine would act so badly on new caps but I did notice the tolerance on the 10000uf cap was fairly broad. Cheap?
So I disconnected this and ordered a replacement cap. An original style one this time.
This turned up sat morning so I gave it a quick test fit:

More elastictickery for today.

The dmd seemed a little dim and was real buzzy. Time to investigate.

[​IMG]

Not shabby soldering but some had balled up over the tracks and the solder looked very old so I am going to remove the lot.


[​IMG]

Wow soooooo many pins!

[​IMG]

Removed all the solder and found this!

[​IMG]

The pin is missing.

[​IMG]

I spent a fair while silver soldering the pins and then ran a wire for the top around the edge of the board.

[​IMG]

Popped her back in and:

[​IMG]

Much brighter and much more visible in sunlight and LOADS less buzz. No more buzzing through the speakers with full screen display images either.

Chuffed!

Now I am ready to strip her down for the re-build. wish me luck!
