Quoted from barakandl:
What ballgame we playing. Check with a fluke. I can guarantee the high voltage will read like 60v too low. That is 30% off. The only ones you can trust is the dc voltages with the load resistors. Check with a cheap meter, and it gets even further off.
You're definitely right about the HV. I always thought that was weird when I first started working on Bally stuff.
If only the high voltage was showing a weird number then you would have a point. That was not the case, so the quality of the meter isn't really relevant. Like I said, the crappiest meter will get you in the ballpark of what are known to be good voltages for this board without load. Even the high voltage. The voltages posted are not even close, so which meter you're using isn't relevant. Unless its totally boned, which I already mentioned.
The point is that the voltages produced by an unloaded Bally rectifier board are well known and even the shittiest meter would not be off as far as what the OP reported.
I don't think anyone is denying that the HV reads weird unloaded. But the weirdness is consistent and predictable.
EDIT: To be clear, when I said "If your meter is giving you those kinds of readings with a known good rectifier" I was referring to the readings posted by the OP. I'll stand by that. If a Fluke is giving you normal readings and another meter with good batteries is giving you THOSE readings then your meter is broken.
