Booster debug and questions
« on: August 31, 2012, 08:42:07 PM »
So I built my second beginner project today but not working. My voltages are all pretty close to where they should be, according to Aron's diagram:

Battery: 9.5V

C: 5.22
B: 2.85
E: 2.39

at 22 uF cap: 2.9V

My grounds run from input sleeve to output sleeve to the 47uF resistor (rather than directly to the resistor). I've checked all the connections a couple times. I've put this all in an old MXR box. Any ideas? thanks

So, I pulled the jacks from the box and it works -  I guess I should have tested it before installing... now to find the short!

Jacks were grounding out - just barely toching the floor of the box...

Don't feel bad, we have all experienced this one!
