erm... you might try to install the capacitor with correct polarity .
No, I didn't add any resistors. Do you mean the ones on top of R18 and R20? They were there when I got the synth...veraferro wrote:but I noticed in the second picture that you have also installed two resistors, right?
Possibly the previous owner did this to lower the resistor value according to 1/R(total) = 1/R(1) + 1/R(2)...
It can, if at all, only be a minor change, imho.
Hi, I tried this mod and I'm getting no sound out of my Poly 800.
As I understand the mod, given your description:
Green wire (outer switch lug) to Pin 5 on IC, Red wire (outer switch lug) to Pin 6 on IC.
Negative of Electro Cap to switch center lug, Positive side of Cap to C103 Positive on the PCB. - I'm going by what you suggested to Veraferro in his drawing, as you said to get the polarity right...
Is that correct?
