Re: Confirmed: My EDP is broken. (was Re: EDP and a BIG burst of static/hiss)
Arg, what a frustrating experience. Does sound like a broken or poor
solder joint. You could try tapping some suspect components with a
plastic or wooden stick (non conductive) to see if you could identify
the region of problem. This shouldn't be too hard to diagnose and fix.
Wish you were nearby so I could help.
I would still be interested to rule out RAM all together, by removing
the existing RAM, and installing other simms. I believe I have some I
could test and send to you gratis if you want.
So, you can either find a good technician in your locality, or send it
to the UK.
I know it is a real disappointment to have such a cool tool, and not be
able to use it.
