As to the highlighted part above.. Your an Electrician / Electronics technician... Are you not ?Originally Posted by 686D61656D623D0C0 link=1267088926/0#0 date=1267088926
opps.. I guess the following tells the full story.
It is one of experience and knowing what to do.. That why it is painful, when some attempt things and can offten make it worse; for those that have to follow / clean up.im wondering how I go about tracking down the faulty component in the control box.
As any tec will tell you.. A self introduced fault can not only be expensive but add significantly to trying to find the real problem.
Unless you understand all the wiring and feedback cct just applying 240V will tell you little and could cause other problems....
Replacing one component at a time may be a partial fix, but if the root cause is not found it will fail again. Then again how will you test every component, with out lots of very expensive test gear..
1: Replace every part and cross fingers :-)
2: Buy a new one
3: Let a skilled electronics person have a look - Mind you ya average Electrician may not be the best choice.
Note: I can see at least one failed component and while it could be the only fault... With out taking measurements and looking at a few extra bits and the cct.. Who knows.
Remember Assumptions kill and working on 240V is dangerous and against the law in Australia; unless licensed.
PS. Checked one out for Borat some time ago... Was not the board, but *wiring on his system..
See option 3 above.
