25K7191 Shutdown Pot Adjustment
« on: May 05, 2018, 12:48:56 pm »
I have a K7000 P538. The factory lacquer on the VR8 HV Shutdown pot was all over the place, covering up the entire bottom of two of capacitors I'm replacing as part of a cap kit.  While I was scraping off the lacquer, I moved the HV pot around. I'm replacing the pot as well.

What is the proper way to adjust the HV Shutdown pot on this board?

Thanks!

I've never heard of an HV shutdown pot. How does it work, exactly?

As the high voltage increase, the shutdown pot limits it from damaging the board if it gets too high. It does this by placing the board into shutdown. I emailed Buffett and this is his response:

Quote
set the pot to the center.

difficult method.
turn it up till the monitor shuts off, turn it back a little till the monitor does not cut off for 36 hours continuous.

easy method.
set the pot to it's center and see if the monitor runs for 24 hours continuous.
if it stays on, call it a day.

So, it's the B+ adjust...? Or is it keyed directly to the B+ itself?

It's keyed directly to the B+ I assume? It's technically not a B+ adjustment from what I've read.
