    I have a Triplett Model 60 Type 2 VOM made in 1983. It looks exactly like the ones made now but the circuit board is completely different. The positive(red) lead coming from the 9v battery connector broke loose from it's connection point. The lead is only about 2 inches long. I downloaded the schematic from Triplett's website but it is totally different than my older meter. I contacted Triplett and according to them, Jewell Corp. purchased Triplett 4 years ago and that is the only schematic they have. I haved looked at the circuit board with a magnifier but can't see anywhere that looks like the wire may have broken loose from. I'm running out of options. If anyone has an older Triplett or a schematic any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Hi electengjd.
    Welcome from me.
    The hole through has got to be there somewhere, was it not near the negative battery lead, like in other types of meters etc ?.

    It cant be that hard to find, can you post a sharp clear picture of both sides of the board ?
    That way members might spot the hole through.
    Dave. :)
    PS, I think you need to post a hello in the welcome section before you can post images.
    I also found this, not sure if you have or not.

    Thanks for the reply

    The negative lead goes through a small slot between the battery compartment and the circuit board compartment and is soldered to one side of a resistor on one of the main dial switches. The positive lead is only 2 inches long and I have looked for a point it could have been connected/soldered for a couple hours.
    This is my 1st go at a forum, so if I don't follow "protocol" please let me know. I'll try to find the Welcome section to post a hello. Thanks

    Hi again.
    Upload your file to an online application, i use photo bucket, but there are others, i think there is another way as well, but i am not sure how that works, maybe another member can elaborate on the other way, i think its something to do with going advanced or something.

    I chose photo bucket as you copy and paste the IMG code to the post.
    The link for photo bucket is below, or try another app.
    Dave. :)
    PS, try to get your pic's sharper than mine, sorry its my picture quality, not the site.
    You can sign up to any one of them.

    In my control panel, under Options, I have the full WYSIWYG editor set. Then, when I respond to a post, I can attach pictures to a post with the "Manage Attachments" button. Easy as pie.

    Dave: here's how I do it. Click on "User CP" at top of forum screen, then click on "Edit options' in left column. Hit the End key on your keyboard to go to the bottom and set your editor choice under Miscellaneous Options. See attached screenshot. At least, this seems to work for me and allows me to attach pictures to a post like I did here. But maybe that isn't it; if not, contact a moderator for more help (I've been known before to give advice worth as much as diluted eyewash).
