The girl in The Spider Web was OK but nothing compares to the original.

OMG guys!  I am so happy right now!!

Sorry to personal OT, but if mic can log every meal here then fuck it, this is the only "social media" I have.

This fucking thing has been under my bench for like 2.5 years, defeated me twice before, and I just got it!!  never has a 400Hz sine wave sounded so sweet!

Fuck you TDA8954!  I hope I never see your like again.

HA!



Ahh nothing feels better than this shit. Smiley

IOU sM

BTW just got my hands on The.Mighty.Boosh.S01E01 gonna check it out finally. Smiley


So uh JoJo.  I would like to celebrate with you but I have no idea what you are talking about.

Often used to find it was the capacitors that popped over time. I had a head unit refurbished once, retouched all the solder joints etc.



Apparently all those Caps are bad after 20+ years whether they look it or not. I was looking for some info on ceramic caps and found a ton of old amp cap failure vids and spent the night watching them instead of fixing the board i was working on.
Speaking of caps do solid caps have a lesser chance of exploding when they fail?

Edited: didn't even answer your question doh, the bulge is intentional on caps so that they do not explode and the solid caps will not bulge but may lift up off the rubber stopper on the bottom if they exceed a certain temp.

Love those aluminum tubes exploding. Cheesy

Full solid caps have longer life in general. Apparently there are so many cap failures in general on most electronics over the last 30(?) years was because of a stolon cap design that the Chinese copied and didn't know it was not a ready for production product. Worthless trivia, I'm full of it. Lol

I just got mauled for having a vistaprint knockoff.


excellent!

 I made it a while ago for the WO thread birthday celebrations.  As long as you don't mind people knowing your birthday anyone can wear it Wink

 I removed the background colour in this one:


 
edit: no I did not!

how about this one?



 edit2: I think I woke up too early  Embarrassed



     Are you designing hats for people to wear?  Huh xhomerx10 won't appreciate you muscling in on his turf. I tried to wear a knockoff, last week, and got a very chilly reception. So I am back to an xhomerx10 original. NO KNOCKOFFS ALLOWED.

OUCH  ! Carefull ! White stains easily !



vistaprint tries to muscle in everywhere.

Bitfinex has a better price, I did not notice it because I'm trading at Binance.
Price currently at Binance is $3,700 below, we will probably follow than in an hour, that green candle though.

LONG BTC!

Most of the old electrolytic caps were just a little aluminum can, with a borax solution in them, with a little rubber seal to seal the end. After a few decades/heat the rubber seal cracks/leaks, and the cap slowly drains onto the circuit board (or in the case of the older point-to-point, directly on the chassis.

I get tired of hearing guitar guys brag/whine about their 'treasured classic guitar amp' with all original caps. "I don't want to update it, I want it to sound like it really does". Earth to Guitar Hero, that amp has not sounded like it's supposed to, for decades. Fix the sumbitch. Yeah, those Mallory Orange Drops are really just bragging rights, anyway.

I've got a little 1974 Fender Vibro-Champ (think Joe Walsh solo on 'Rocky Mountain Way'). Damn right I re-capped it. I've got a '62 Hammond M3 (the baby B-3), damn right I re-capped it's power supply.  I've got a '64 RT-3 that sounds great, but it's next.

no goo, no 'splode

last longer too

You get what you pay for, all aluminum can electrolytics have a finite life span.

Go with Nichicon, Panasonic or United Chemi-Con, brand name Japanese products, and pay attention to the temperature and lifetime ratings.

Amp belongs to this young fella played bass with us for a bit.  One day we are raging away and the amp goes FzzzzzzzzPOP with the accompanying smell of the magic smoke.  I'm like "skid it across into the shack, I'll see what I can do."

Pull it apart, the final is this monster 24pin IC with the whole output side blown off it.  At the time the part was $35 or something.  I Digikey one up and get it in <LESSON ALERT 1 !> disregarding the first law of electronic troubleshooting; Thou shall check power supply rails...

Fire it up, a slight crumble sound from the speaker then nothing.  Get to poking around, both the supply regs and some zeners have failed short and unregulated DC is present at the device...shit.

Order up those parts, hoping against hell that the $35 chip has protected itself somehow, it does have a laundry list of self protective features integrated.

About this time we started seeing another bassist.  Some of you may know how band breakups can be.  The kid took it pretty hard and broke contact.

Got the supply parts in and fired it up...nothing.  <LESSON ALERT 2 !> I have a common character flaw.  It's not that I'm a quitter so much as when I fuck stuff up due to my own laziness, inattention or stupidity it really kicks me in the balls.  Case in point; walking away from an engine assembly project, bottom end all bolted up, without wrapping it up in plastic, then diving into a fabrication project without paying attention and spraying the open engine with the grinder...that fucker is still sitting there 4 years later.

So the thing got slid under the bench and collected dust as a constant, depressing reminder of my lameitude, with the added social weight that the kid probably figures I stole it from him.

Well, I been trying to get my life together and clear out these projects that are dragging me down.  This made it to the top of the pile and it turns out the chips are EOL now and are going for $7.  So now I get to email the kid and relieve myself of the psychic weight of the whole episode.

Sorry for the uncharacteristic wall of text.

Congratulations for fixing it, repairing yourself a device always makes you feel useful, we are immersed in a great scam of programmed obsolescence, repair or rebuild something that does not work, it is incomparable, it is a good personal experience.

Oh yeah... hadn't thought about that possible connection.

By the way, it is funny that we have not had many members of this thread asserting that they lost money in Quadrigacx.
