ic1 has 0 volts on pin 9 traced pin 9 to ic3 pin 22, from there i cannot locate were it goes. maybe im just going about this the wrong way.


#2

Please check the voltage on pin 4 of IC2.
Should be about -5.2V.

For more info and possible resolution, please see these threads:

#3

yes i have -5.1 volts on pin 4 of ic2, with the software running on pin 1 of ic2 i have 1.01 volts


#4

OK.
What is the voltage on pin 7 of IC2 when the software is running?
Should be about -1.7V.


#5

yes i have -1.66 volts


#6

OK.
What is the voltage on pin 2 of IC3 ?
There should be same voltage as on pin 1 of IC2.


#7

pin 2 of ic3 has-0.27 volts pin 1 of ic2 has-1.88 volts


#8

Next you can check the resistance between IC2 pin 1 and IC3 pin 2.
Disconnect the USB cable before measuring.
There should be 1.1k ohms.
If not, please check the soldering of R13, R3, IC2 pin1 and IC3 pin 2.
