well, i took a look at it for nate...the first filter cap, c43 i think, 100u was EXPLODED. so was the voltage protection diode...blown in half. replaced the 1n4001 and subbed a 47u for the 100u.
i can't get it to pass signal, the tone and volume controls work, the distortion just makes it hum bad. no sound in bypass, either, tho the led works.
ALL the voltages were WACK... where it should read 9, was reading almost 16v, the 4.5 was around 7 or 8...so i assume something is cooked, shorted, and drawing heavy current.
when the effect is on, it hums like a bear...so i figure blown diodes and caps at the least, thru most of the circuit. it's weird, the voltages are close, in terms of division etc, just about double what they should be...used a regulated roland 9v adapter.
so....any thoughts? advice? where would be a good place to start looking do you think?
i took a phone pic, will try and upload later..thanks guys
