Newbie PV5 questions

Post by Marktd » Tue Mar 28, 2017 8:46 pm

I rushed headlong into replacing parts in my power supply, when I got my PV5 out of storage. Unfortunately, I didn't take enough pictures beforehand. Now I can't figure one thing out - the in on the second voltage regulator appears to connect to nothing!
Can that be right?
I also seem to not have had a C11, or I can't figure out where it went. It appears to be a bypass for C7-9, so I just soldered on the bottom. Is that ok?
I mainly want to know about the voltage regulators before hooking back up!
Finally, is it worth spending a bunch of money on C25 and C30?
I was planning on spending on C29!
Thanks for any help,

Hi Mark. Welcome to CJO. You may want to download the schematics to the PV5 as I'm sure it could help you "put it back together."
