My understanding is an 8K Static PET, based on the board number he gave earlier. That's what I've been using to shape my replies. > If you have a later 2001 model, I found this comment in some notes I > have "..check the voltages from the anodes of the diodes CR10,11,12 > located alongside the heatsink.

The PET of this thread has three 7805s in TO220 packages, not one 12V and two 5V regulators in TO3 packages. Different sections of this board are driven by each regulator (I gave the grouping earlier). You have to check all three since they are not tied together. If none are lit up, and you know you have enough AC voltage coming out of the transformer (8VAC ought to be enough), the next thing to check is the rectifier diodes and maybe the large (though not as large as later PETs) filter cap. It's a simple linear power supply. There are only about a dozen elements to check, and half of them are only suspect if you have power but it's bad power (too much ripple, noise, etc). You can make a really simple 5V PSU with just a source of about 8-9VAC, an electrolytic cap for a filter, a small ceramic or tantalum as a bypass cap for the 7805 and the 7805. That's more-or-less what a static PET has, but times three. -ethan Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2009-08-08 21:49:49
