Hi, I don’t think that the red beeper cable is the cause. If your batteries are OK and playback doesn’t work either I’m really out of ideas. I would check the batteries with a multimeter and maybe try a third one. Then I would try to trace the current from the battery pins to the main logic.
Hi, you can try open the Volca and rinse it thouroughly with distilled water. Remove the batteries before. Then dry it with a fan and keep it open and let it dry on air for 24 hours. The re-insert the batteries and hope for the best. What kind of liquid was it?
Hi Bernhard, basically I share your opinion about the Super Macro Mode, which gets only activated if the Zoom is in the Tele-Position. However I don’t have any idea how to re-adjust the position of the cogwheels in Step 14. I would try to block one cogwheel (the small, white one), try to move the big black one and see, if something changes.
Sorry, I can’t help you here. You may try www.korgforums.com. There are some discussions about broken Volcas.
Nice to hear that it worked.
Sorry man, I don’t know why iFixit doesn’t notify me :( In case you haven’t already fixed or thrashed your ESX : The LM2596 should be potent enough to drive the 1A of the ESX. Nonetheless I would monitor the output voltage of the LM2596. If it drops after a while below a relevant value maybe there is an error in your design, so that the LM2596. doesn’t deliver enough power. You could test your fix with an external 3,3V power supply instead of your LM2596. If this works then maybe there is still an error in your design.
Hi, I have written this instruction twice. I had some problems with the first not being published. Please have a look at the other instruction:
Replacing a fuse in the Electribe SX (ESX)
The EMX Service Manual is attached there.
Hi Les, this might be one of the four “rubber tubes” which are wrapped around the screws which hold the lens. These are the screws with the big silver heads which you can see on the three pictures of step 13. I guess the rubber tubes are there to dampen the vibration.
Hi Karel, I am very sorry that I did not answer your question right away. I did not get a notification from iFixit that someone has commented.
Regarding your problem: If I remember correctly there is a small mechanical switch which gets activated when you turn the lens. Then the camera knows that someone wants to take pictures and switches on in “Take Pictures Mode”. Maybe this explains as well why you can play back but not record. This is be the point where I would look first.
I scrolled through my pictures but unfortunately I did not photograph this switch.
Hi, what Happens if you hold the PLAYBACK-Key on your X10? Does the camera start in Playback-Mode?
