    does anyone know how to fix these things?

    I'm sure the problem cannot be too bad. The display works, the things boots (then crashes) and it's not fixed by changing to another power supply or when the wireless module is removed. Someone should have an idea...

    Thanks,
    -Chris

    Have you tried the Xilink reset that Mnyb suggested last month? Your posts since then don't indicate whether you have or not.

    Cool software resets don't work...

    Does anyone have a repair manual? Maybe someone from the original SlimDevices guys?

    Sounds to me like one of the internal voltage regs is faulty and is shutting down soon after boot.

    You should post in the DIY forum if you want to get soldering...
    You want to see the signal path BEFORE it gets onto a CD/vinyl...it ain't what you'd call minimal...

    Talking

    Diy is the best bet

    Repair manual ? come on it's a single circuit board cheap consumer device, ce got repaired in the 70's .
    When it had warranty they tossed the whole board in the recycling bin and replaced it .

    I can write a SB classic repair manual

    If main board broken replace with a new one

    If wifi card is broken replace with a new one

    If PSU broken replace with a new one

    If VFD is broken replace with a new one

    If in doubt give the consumer a new SB Classic and scrap the whole unit.


    Joking aside these DIY'rs might know .

    What could exist as documents is a circuit diagram has anyone leaked one of those ?

    In th good old days of hifi you could get one if you asked from many companies

    In the good old days you didn't have to ask for one, they always came with the instruction manual.

    Red face A circuit diagram would be nice...

    I believe the problem is not serious, yet it's difficult to debug in the dark. Seems like there are several SB's with the same symptoms. There must be someone who has some ideas. If I had a circuit diagram, I might have some luck and I would tell the world the scoop.

    PS: I'm pretty knowledgable and good at fixing things...
