Beware the reverse polarity PSU hazard...
« on: May 09, 2017, 06:52:51 AM »
My ME-25 now operates only on battery power, following the accidental connection of a Yamaha PSU.
That fact that it's still working at all is a bonus...

Suspecting a blown protection diode, I tried bridging each diode near the power socket with a known-good diode. No luck... I've no idea what's wrong and I reserve SMD surgery for when I am certain of what I'm doing. If it ain't TOTALLY broke, don't attempt to fix it  ;) 

I will now bodge a second 2.1mm power socket in between the battery pack and the PCB. Crude, yes -  but I can't continue on batteries.
