Quoted from skogen75:
Got my Crystal Ball mod last week (on my birthday! Thanks Steve). Had to wait until the weekend to install. Here’s where it gets crazy. So I got the ball off the old mount with the twist method, it was on there really good, when it finally came loose it took a chunk of the ball with it. Turns out the new mount covers it and it can’t be seen, avoided disaster there. Next, I was screwing on the screen and my screw driver rubbed on the PCB, I heard a crunch. Yep, sheered off the inductor. Searched for the manufacturer of the screen and luckily they publish their schematics. It was a 4.7 uH inductor; good news, I have those in my electronics inventory. Soldered on a new one, tested, it works, avoided disaster again. Sanded out some scuffs on the ball with some 5000 grit and polished it up using some car polish, looks perfect. Install in the pin and it looks great. Well, that’s my install story anyway.
Yikes. Well, I’m glad it all worked out for the better. Thank you!
