The clock only needs to be stable on a short term basis. Every time you use the unit, you start by calibrating it to the mains frequency. There is a setting on the front panel just for that. And by the time it is divided down for the motors, a few hertz drift would not be noticed. SO unlike some video source that must sync up to the world, they could get away with a "poorly designed" clock. These little units worked quite well.

The units did work well. I still have several of them. Would be nice though if they had a position on the frequency adjust dial that said "locked" or something like that so one could use it for concert pitch only and not have to fuss with calibrating at all.

I have CONN Strobotuner ST-11, and today its motor stopped spinning (lights & pilot LED are on and +50V of motor power transistors is OK, though voltage to the motor is only 1.4 volt). Do you have some troubleshooting documents, or any suggestions?

Thanks,
SW

Hello to everyone.
I have a ST-11 bought from USA. I live in Italy and I have 230V 50Hz.
I've understood how to mod the tuner for 240V but my problem remain the 50Hz.
Does anyone know how to mod it in order to use calibration with 50Hz (transform it into a ST-12?

Thanks so much

Do you have a schematic? Mine are miles away. Contact Peterson and ask if they have any such information. Last time I checked (a while ago) Peterson web site has a forum, and a section there where they discuss old Conn tuners. (Peterson bought the Conn assets when Conn went under.)

Hello
Thanks for the reply.
I have schematics of ST-11 which don't include 50Hz mod.
I know about that forum but it seems they have deleted it... I can't find it anymore...
Nevertheless, after one hour spent on calculations and thoughts, I think I solved it also with the help of post #17 of this thread.
I have to write it down and then I'll post my solution.
