you have switching problems in your monitor path. Could be several things, but you need to get in and follow the signal (scope) thru the stages you have mentioned and see where it fails or changes in the wrong way.

The popping may be part of the problem (DC in the monitor path) or it could be just dirt in the pot, hard to tell from here.

to identify the function of the cap, you probably will need to identify the pins it connects to and on which card to "bring" it into the schematic. Ring it out. (that means use a DMM in resistance mode and set it for beep on short)

I just did it.
It's kinda easy. But a pain at the same time. You need the proper side panels to put it back on. So keep the producer desk in tact!

You are right, sorry about that.

- Monitor pot is doing more noise (pops) when moving (betwen rotary steps or positions)
- Mini switch is working all the time, lamp is on all the time (when main monitor is using, switching "Mini" on, signal is cutted on main monitor. But there is signal all the time on "Mini LS" outputs of the patchbay and the Mini switch light is on all the time)
- Dim pot and Mni LS pot seem that they sound lower

I am getting crazy with the external to monitor and monitor section in general. I have been able to put everything working except external monitoring selectors, but now everything is getting worse again.

I want to start checking everything again, but I do not know what this cap is for, so that is the reason why I am asking about it.

Thanks for replying, Matt.

Hi,

I have a SSL 4056 E/G with patch bays on the left and a producer's desk on the right. I would like to remove the producer's desk and reduce the frame to either 40 or 48 channels footprint.

Does the 4056 frame allow this without major modification to the metal structure?

Any help, pictures or insight will be greatly appreciated as I don't have the books in my possession.

Removing the producer desk is fairly straight forward. I am assuming your desk it laid put so that the last bucket is next to the producer desk?
if this is the case all you need to do is remove the BICC from under the 49-56 bay and cut them back on the patchbay, also remove all the VU meters (or plasmas) feeds.
Remove the 8 channels bucket and then shorten the metal work.
This is the tricky bit as the two metal bars that run along the console are threaded so you need to make sure that you either shorten those up and leave the thread on or cut them short and re do the thread.

Ultimately:
This is not something that should be attempted, you would need a specialist in to show you how it's done. you really don't want to start messing with the metal work and possibly compromise the mechanical stability of the console.

My 2 cents.

Matt Sartori.

Hi,

I do not know wht is this cap for. It is a 1,5uF 50v electrolitic capacitor wich I have replaced by 1.5uF 63v film capacitor. After replacement, I have some issues , but I am not sure if it is because of thet, I also have changed other things so...

I would apreciate if someone could tell me what is this cap for.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards.

Oihan

That is a bit vague, what other issues are you having?

Slowly but surely.

looks amazing well done.
In my experience all the "extra cables run back to the patchbay and the BICC go to the VU / PLASMAs meters so it's only a matter of chopping those off.
Having said that I would just leave them there or even better try and locate a couple of buckets and restore it to the extended 64 channels...  ;)

Hi Guys,

Anybody care to share time estimates on doing this for one guy? Will have multiple guys for any of the heavy lifting, but doing this all myself. Also, fair price range to charge?
