Repair Preset Selector Switch on EHX POG2 with pictures
« on: August 29, 2021, 08:40:24 PM »
Howdy! I picked up this POG2 for a song compared to current pricing. The box is a little beat up and the rotary selector switch was snapped off. I verified the part with EHX and for $2.95 plus shipping I was able to repair it.

Tools Needed
Flush cut pliers needed
Soldering iron with variable temp
60/40 solder
PCB Holder
Small sockets for input/output jacks
Drill for enclosure fasteners
Phillips for PCB fasteners
Chop stick to help remove board from enclosure
De-Oxit Gold to clean/lube sliders, jacks, etc

All in all it took about 20 minutes. Works perfect! Now I just need to find the right soft click bypass switch for this. The stock switch is a little stiff and noisy.

Steps

Open box
Remove jack fasteners
Remove slider covers
Unscrew board
Remove switch (bypass and preset) fasteners
Remove PCB
Unsolder anchor lugs and clean out
Carefully Unsolder pins on the pads and clean out

Seat the new switch
Clean soldering iron tip
Bend anchors onto board and solder in
Carefully solder active pins into pads

Put the thing back together

Itís harder to get the board back in than to take it out!

Hope this is helpful to any one
