Voltage check issue / page 52 / 6.3vDC reading [resolved]
« on: February 08, 2024, 09:35:10 AM »
Hi, I'm getting a reading of 11.5v when testing the 6.3v solder pads.
The 275v reading is fine.

Could this be a dodgy solder?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I would double check that the 124 and 499 ohm resistors are in the correct spots, then add a little more solder and quite a bit more heat.

Hi Paul, thanks for your advice
After re-soldering the resistors I’m now getting the correct reading.
Much appreciated.
