blown Bob Parker ESR meter.

Discussion in 'Electronic Repair' started by Everett Cotton, Feb 12, 2007.

  1. I wasn't paying attention an tried to get read the ESR on a cap in a
    hot circuit. Wonder if anyone has made a repair on a smoked Bob Parker
    ESR meter. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advanced.

    AFAIR the literature that came with mine or possibly on the website states
    that this usually takes out the micro.

    Advice is also given to add a pair of inverse parallel rectifier diodes
    across the terminals to prevent this kind of mishap.

    Something about this group annoyed Bob so he does not hang out here
    much anymore.

    He has lots of helpful repair info on his site but I seemed to have
    lost track of his URL. Shame on me. Anyone got it?
