Re: non-standard mike connector, HELP
- Thanks to all that replied to my request for help. I tried Pete's solution,
it worked. I had to remove more material than .001", I removed at least
.012" using a small 'jewelers' file to make a nice square notch. It still
has quite a bit of wobble. Time will tell if the connection gets noisy with
age because of the wobble( inherent problem with all RJ connectors).
THE CONNECTOR ON THE 897 IS STANDARD, THE PROBLEM IS IN THE ALIGNMENT OF THE
BOARD ITS MOUNTED ON AND THE FRONT PANEL. THE FIX IS SIMPLE, I JUST DID IT.
TAKE A EXACTO KNIFE AND SCRAPE AWAY A BIT OF PLASTIC, FROM THE FRONT PANEL,
IN THE AREA WHERE THE LITTLE CLAMP IS SUPOSED TO LATCH OR DROP DOWN TO HOLD
IT IN PLACE. USE A FLASHLITE AND SOME MAG EYES ......... SIMPLY SCRAPE AWAY
ABOUT .001 INCH OF MATERIAL. AGAIN, MATERIAL TO SCRAPE AWAY IS PART OF THE
FRONT PANEL, RIGHT IN THE CENTER, TOWARD FRONT.
IF U HAVE PROBLEMS, EMAIL ME DIRECT AND WILL SEND A JPEG.
