Bearcat BC100XLT problems

Post by max-m » Thu, 30 Jun 2005 07:58:56


My BC100XLT seems to have the 'standard' fault where there is no audio
and the backlight won't illuminate. Other than that it seems okay!

I've tried the relevant repair tips as listed here:

http://repairfaq.ece.drexel.edu/REPAIR/F_BC_Repair.html

I found a shorted 200uf electrolytic but replacing that didn't fix the
fault. The transistor at Q201 checks out okay and as I didn't have a
spare I carried out the mod to short out the collector and emitter but
still no sound or backlight. I've checked the rest of the
electrolytics and transistors but cannot find any other faults.

Any ideas please anyone?

Or is there a suitable messageboard where I should be asking about
this?

Many thanks

Please ignore that - being an idiot I accidentally shorted the
collector and emitter of Q204 instead of Q201. Whoops!

Is that mistake with Q204 likely to have caused any new problems?

Thanks
