I picked up a RL500 cheap on Craigslist.
Toasted motherboard. I've found the popped component, voltage regulator, but have no schematics to trace the troubles.
I suspect something downstream of the regulator is the issue
The motherboard info:
Sn 5551. 24/00
I'm more than comfortable doing rework and repair of the surface mount components. Thanks to a previous career in electronics design.
Anybody in the general Seattle area have parts?
I'm more than willing to build a new controller, with modern motor drivers if parts are scarce or too expensive. Anybody else hacked together their own controller.
I haven't heard anything about Friendly Machines for a while, are they still in business?
