  • Scanner Tester Help Please

    Hey guys Im teaching myself how to use this tester for the '79 scanners. Its not easy anyways I cant figure out where "T1 or T2" is located on the Scanner Amplifier PCB. Does anyone have a pic or a discription of where it is. The one in this manual I cant see it. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

      On the amp board, look real close, there are two gold pins (I do believe) that are labeled on the board as T1, T2. Once you locate them, if you get them backwards, the meter will show a positive voltage with your hand over the receiver lens. There are a lot of things that can throw a 79' scanner into a tizzy fit, one of the worst is bulb alignment, and receiver alignment, the worse is receiver focus!

      Good Luck, and yell if you need help !

        Mine was the bad connection at the base of the bulb, had to snap it with a screwdriver and it would brighten up. Finally soldered the wire to the bulb.
