Repairs & upgrades.
There is a huge thread on this somewhere, basically is purposely not changed..
I think the bottom line was, I tried ceramics, and all sorts on there, and mostly everything I did seem to make it worse if I remember rightly..
So oddly, it is actually better to leave that alone...
You got to watch those clips on the rectifier and heatsink. Mine just pinged off whilst applying pressure and hit the ceiling.
Just a note - the large rectifier the legs are a little too wide for the holes. Had to drill the original holes a fraction bigger to get the component in.
DONE - Recapped and re-metal filmed
Finished measurements (under load) with metal film resistor replacement and recap:Icky wrote: ↑Tue Nov 13, 2018 11:10 pmPower lines under load before metal film resistor replacement:
+5V line= 4.85V
+12V line= 11.26V
Power lines under load after metal film resistor replacement:
+5V line = 4.84V
+12V line = 11.23V
More importantly R205 is not getting really hot and smelling. Thus have solved the heat and smell problem.
+5V line = 4.92V
+12V line = 11.09V
