Teisco SX-400 Calibration
Hi fellow Slutz,
I'm trying to tweak some trimmers in my SX-400 and there isn't much info about what I should be doing, in print, or in my head.
I've started by trying to get the voices to sound similar by flicking the 440hz switch on the back and trying to match each voice by ear.
There are some trimmers on the VCF board for Channel 1-4 Keyboard Feed Back Offset and Channel 1-4 Slope. There's some test points near by but I don't know what I should be measuring,and what I should be measuring with.
The test points are at the end of a CA3280/4558 circuit.
What is this offset I am measuring, how do I measure this offset?
I have a 100mhz Philips combiscope that I'm not all clued up on (user manual scares me) and I'm not sure how to see what's happening using this.
Maybe I'm just supposed to be measuring a voltage and am overcomplicating it by trying to learn how to use a scope.
Hopefully I can use any knowledge or tips I might learn here to help with the rest of the various trimmers, of which there is a great many inside the SX-400
Just run some service tests from the test menu of my oscilloscope (Philips PM3365A)and I don't think that the triggering function is working correctly for DC input coupling,(AC works) so that might explain why I can't see anything particularly special while hooked up to the test points of my SX-400?
Will investigate further now I know I might have a problem.Looking forward to going through a 365 page service manual for a solution.
Or I could try to use Channel B instead. Triggering seems OK on that.
