I got a Kings of Steel years ago and finally am getting around to fixing it.
The driver board HV had visible burned resisters at R51 and R55 so I rebuilt the whole section with components I had from GPE or acquired from NTE.
Before putting it back in the game, I was checking paths with my meter and have an issue at R56(82K).
Meter reads 81.7K with red lead at junction of R56 and RT1, and black lead at junction of R55/Q23/C28.
Meter reads 77K with red lead at junction of R55/Q23/C28, and black lead at junction of R56 and RT1.
Position of RT1 (which is also new) only changes the value from 76.4K to 77K.
If I remove either R55 or VR1, R56 will read 81.7K with the leads in either direction.
R55 and VR1 both meter properly, both in and out of circuit, and I've tried additional replacements with the same results.
The board has not been powered up yet so I do not know if voltages are proper or not. Thoughts on this discrepancy of ohm readings?
