Hi
I'm looking for any help on resolving a dead vfo dial on my r71a receiver. I opened it up last night and checked the output of the dial voltage and it 'seems' fine. (just using a multimeter...no oscilloscope)
I'm thinking there might be something with the 'lock' switch, which I'm checking tonight...anyone have any thought??
Thanks in advance,
Dan

Was playing around inside the logic board and by moving J6 plug around got the vfo working for a sec. Pulled the board out and found a few broken solder joints on the board. Reflowed the connector pins and works like new again. Now I just have to find all the screws to reassemble :)
Thanks for all the help and suggestions. That r71 forum was a great help.
