  1. Does anyone have one of these available. I'll pay photocopy/postage.

    Something smoked in mine.

    Thanks.

    I don't have that one but Heatkit users might like to know that some other
    circuits
    were on www.circuitarchive.co.uk/heath.htm .
    They have now been removed
    but fortunately were archived at http://web.archive.org/ .

    Go to
    http://web.archive.org/web/20000817093952/http://www.circuitarchive.co.uk/heath.htm

    The www.heathkit.virtual.museum/ has also been archived.
    See http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.heathkit.virtual.museum/

    Sad to realize how much info has been lost
    but worth giving http://web.archive.org/ a try.

    Have you contacted Heath? As recently as a few years ago, they still offered
    photocopies of manuals for every kit they ever sold, even after they left
    the kit business.

    If you do a google you'll get lots of hits, inc.

    "Heathkit Opr,Svc SG-1271 Func Generator $16"

  5. Yes I know. $16 is way too much. :) I only spent $2 for it about 10 years
    ago and I have several Wavetek function generators anyhow. It's just a
    challenge.

    I know what you mean, but if it isn't on BAMA et al what are you going to
    do? Set up an email search on eBay and cross your fingers?

  8. No, just put it in the "to do" pile and hope that someday someone will
    notice my request here and be a good guy. :)

    Or, just dig into it without a schematic. It's probably a power supply
    problem of some kind which should be possible to track down with a
    multimeter. A schematic would just make it easier. I know there's
    a tantalum cap that blew up and there's something funny about that
    area of the circuit because it only measures ~1 V now without the cap.
    It's just a pain to get to the bottom of the PCB, requiring removing the
    knobs and front panel so was hoping to avoid it. Oh well.....

    I've fixed so many things without a schematic that I get annoyed when I
    can't do this (more and more these days with custom ICs). I've even gotten
    things to work at times by sheer dumb luck!

  10. Attn: Mark Zenier.

    I tried to reply to your email on this topic but my mail bounced.

    Please give me an address that works.

    Thanks.

  11. I have a partial manual that's not very good. I don't know when or
    where I got it, but it might help you.

    <http://home.earthlink.net/~mike.terrell/Heathkit_Sg-1271_Function_Generator.pdf>
     
  12. Talk about replying to old posts. :)

    Thanks, but someone already sent me a complete manual.

    I did have to replace a transistor but I don't know if that had anything to
    do with the original problem.

  13. I saw that no one had replied with a useful link so I posted in case
    you still needed it. You spend a lot of time helping others here and I
    like to do the same when I can. BTW, did you ever fix the equipment you
    needed that six pin plug and shell I sold you?
     
  14. Thanks. HeNeNe.... I did build the cable with it. Haven't gotten to
    actually put the rest of it together though. It was for a high vacuum
    ionization gauge and the vacuum part of it isn't all there. And maybe
    I'm just goofing off. :)

  15. Could be, its been over a year that I was off line. On the other
    hand, you may have been to busy with everyone else to have time to play
    with it.
