Morley SLDW issues (Schematic traced)

Postby Manfred » 23 Dec 2017, 16:48

I friend of mine gave me a Morley SLDW for repair.
I found that the original schematic do not corresponds with the circuit,
it was therefore necessary to trace the circuit.
One more LED-LDR combination in real circuit and a somewhat different wiring identified.
The owner cannot rember if the pedal had been modified sometime in the past.
In the original schematic 7812 voltage regulator is shown, in the real circuit it is jumpered.
Likewise the power supply is 18 Volts DC in the schematic drawing, in the circuit it is 9 Volts DC,
but the resistors in seriell to the LEDs are the same as at 18 Volts.
The pedal do not works fine.
My impression is that the brightness of the LEDs are to faint.
Who knows more about the pedal?

I dropped the pedal for a long time, then I started the repair a few days ago.
Now, it is finished an works fine, with a DC-jack (pin negative).
The pedal works not fine using 9VDC power supply voltage, so I add a voltage doubler and the 12Volts voltage regualtor.
I choosed this TDA2003 voltage doubler to ensure a sufficient current.

That's right! I would have done the same thing and posted a picture of the layout madbeans! The only question is, where to start? Perhaps you first need to set the size corresponding to the opamps...

Do not open, the sentence contains the hidden link "Kong Spiele" to a gaming site!
