Hi tibi,

I'm interested on the fully tested kit. Does it include the power
as well? How does it compare to the original shigaclone?

Thanks

Hi Turbo,

Full tested kit include power supply as well, however the trafo must be ordered separately.
From sound reproduction point of view, Shiga outperform original JVC.
MKII will sound even better, in fact I expect a notable difference.

Regards,
Tibi

Hey all.

I'm still banging my head against the wall on my second board. First board works fine. Second one I built with the chip set and my passive components still won't read the index track. It seaks for a while, then speeds up the spindle and displays "00".

I tried the mod of moving Q3 and C50 but it had no effect.

Any other suggestions?

I also rotated the transistor on the remote and now it works fine.

Hi The Gimp,

I would look for a cracked ceramic capacitor, these often crack when soldered with iron.

Regards,
Tibi

I looked for cracks using the Leica GZ4 at 30X and didn't find anything so I replaced all the ceramic chip caps smaller than 100nF.

Hopefully it will work tonight when I take it home.

Bingo!

I probably had a wrong cap somewhere. Unfortunatly it is virtually impossible to measure them in-circuit without special equipment ,so the easiet thing to do is shotgun them.

Posted this in Swap Meet but I figure this is the place to ask:

I'm building a JVC EZ31-based clone (thanks Peter!) and wish to purchase two of the Citizen CSA309-16.9344MABJ-UB crystals (something tells me to get two due to rarity). In the US I can send a USPS money order with more than enough to cover the parts and hassle of posting them. (I quit my paypal account due to TOS changes requesting very personal information.) I'm also attempting to source the specified Black Gate caps at less than some of the astonishing market prices I've come across. Regards to all; very excited to get this working and playing!

I have been looking for ages on a suitable jvc boombox as a transplant. I know in saying that, i am not the only one. But today i think i may of found something very similar. Attached is some photos of the mechanism i found in both a sanyo mcd-zx500f and the mcd-zx700f. what are your thoughts?
