    Vortex 285 Main Board - Value of R9?

    Gang,

    R9 broke off in a crash. Anyone know the value? It's part of the LED board circuit - the quad works fine without it but the LED board still doesn't light up (LED board solder joints were repaired after this photo was taken) And yes, I realize I can send it to Immersion for repair, but I can probably find a replacement resistor in my parts bin and it will take 2 minutes to solder in.

    Thanks,
    Rick

    Blob of solder and you're good to go again, the original part is a ferrite bead.

    Thanks much Ssassen,

    Did it, still no workie. I guess the next step is to make wire traces to try and jump the broken traces to the LED board. My solder bridges along the existing traces weren't enough to get the LEDs running.

    Yup, that's a good idea.
