I Give You Power
OK, hopefully this time I got the right parts for the power section. I’ve added the components and the various required wires jumping pins. Now it's time to test the power.
I cannibalized the power jack from the old modular MIDIBox (I’m stealing its power supply too). I EAT YOU FOR ECONOMIC SUFFICIENCY. I’ve also installed the power switch from one of the 64s.
Nothing popped or sparked. No smoking. All good signs. Time to follow the official guide’s testing for voltages.
J1_SID1 9v: 9.07V
J1_SID1 12v: 12.01V
J1_SID2 9v: 9.07V
J1_SID2 12v: 12.01V
I think those are close enough. :/
