Thanks! Those will be perfect.

Hey Chris,

Here’s a link to the ones we purchased. They’re working great so far.

"We ordered some pico fuses and replaced the blown ones on the non-function 611's"

Matt,

I need to order some pico fuses as well. What did you get? Are they 2 Amp? The schematic only says 2A...

Thanks,

Chris

Hi Spanzor,

My observations were mostly directed towards the original poster with the 82E12 card. The '13 cards I've dealt with have been retrofitted with the 500K pot acting as VR3; so it's certainly possible to add them to any '13 card without VR3 already.

cool! got some soldering to do then...

 thanks man!!

Hey Josh-

Someone will probably chime in with some better/more specific diagnostic ideas than me.

I'd say first, have you double checked polarity on all the new caps? 

Are all the channels giving you trouble in the same area in the signal chain?  Are you getting signal at the direct output/or in the group outs/float to groups? 

Check group and VCA output cards, double check fader ribbons

4K,6K,8K Series / Recapped Channel Not Getting to the Stereo Bus
« Last post by Josh Moran on January 15, 2018, 04:36:08 AM »
Hi guys,

Just recapped our SSL 8064G+ and we're having a problem with about 12 channels scattered through out various buckets that are not passing audio. We're sending an oscillator through the channel and it's not being picked up by the stereo bus. We checked at the insert send and signal is passing. We engaged the dynamics & EQ and it didn't stop the signal. We had originally thought it may be a Logic card issue so we switched out the card with a fully functioning channel's Logic card and it still didn't work. Our console has Film Pans (that we also recapped) and we're assuming that they may be causing an issue, just don't know how or where to check if it is.

Anyone have some advice?

Hey again-

Did some more digging in the slew of paperwork I have for this desk.  I found the schematic for the 82E13 card with a few revisions made already.  I have some cards like this, others without VR3.  Looks like the VR trim that's in series with R13 DOES act as variable trim VR3.  I've highlighted these sections on the schematic, which has been super helpful. 

I'll try calibrating one of these as though the channel is a late model 82e13 with vr3 and post results.  Looks like I will have to do some modifications to the cards with only vr1/vr2 in order to be able to calibrate them the same way.

Be back soon...

The problem with the original poster's VCA card might be down to the card's design not having as many adjustments as the later '13 card. The 500k pot adds a DC bias to one of the differential analog inputs; this leads me to believe it's an adjustment to the symmetry and therefore distortion. The retrofitted 60k Bourns trimpot, I'm guessing, fulfills the same function as the the '13 card's VR3 pot, Offset, so that it's possible to align all the VCAs to match at one point of the faders' position. There doesn't seem to be an adjustment equivalent to the '13's VR2, Fader Law, which is why the faders only match at one point. Are all three leads from the trimpot all used, or only two?

Hey thanks for reply-

I was hoping that the retro-fitted pot would be to act as a type of V3 trim since there's already two other trims on this particular 82e13 card (vr1 & vr2).  From this post it sounds like my added trim does NOT function as VR3, as it is a 500k pot.  It's only attached at two legs in series with R13, and there isn't really anywhere for the far leg to attach to and it looks cut (very tight space here).  This measures close to 58k ohms. 

This is treated as something different than VR3?  Where would the 60k trim be located if retrofitted?  I'll re-read this post in case that's covered and I've missed it.  Also please let me know if I've confused the 500k DC bias pot you've mentioned with another pot/if I'm misunderstanding your post.  My VR1, VR2 and retrofitted pots all appear to be 50k, 500, and 500k ohms, respectively. 

Another thing that the modified 82e13 card has is another resistor in series at r27 (at the top of the card between the VCA and T3 amp).  It gives me a reading of about 4.9k, where the original DBX card with NO MODS reads 14k in across R27.

Has anyone else installed consoles with 82e13 VCA output cards with only VR1/VR2, with or without the added 500k pot across R13??
