Because your pcb is like Salas but reversed, take out all fets, trans., zeners, led and solder them on the coper side. Try again. Perhaps you have change the orientasion.

It was the 840. Apparently it too was fried in the original smoking. For all who smoke this thimg, zi ended up burning thr pre filter resistor, the two ccs fets, q1 gate resistor, and 840. I think vref section was ok and probably protected by 840 that got fried. My guess was right about the 840 acting asopen circuit, passing all current rather than acting as voltagr controlled resistor as it should. Thats also why there was a small voltage at outputs and across fet and LED. The Vref section was getting current, but the 840 was keeping it from getting enough to function and ultimately control current through 840. Circle of life! Ended up with max Vrop across 5k test load of 199V, which works out to about 40mA. I assume final adjustment will take place when hooked up to tubes. Thanks for the help!

The best sense I have read in a long time.

You can build the CCS section alone and test it.
You can then add on the shunt regulator and short the output to test the combined assembly.
Remove the short to test the Shunt.
Add a load to further test the shunt.

At all these intermediate stage be very careful to only apply sufficient input voltage to test the section that has been added. eg ~30V will test the CCS alone.
The same 30V will test the CCS+Shunt with the output shorted.
etc.

It sometimes hard to do in the middle of a build. You just want to get it done and listen.

So you made it in the end. Congrats.

P.S. The 840 should have acted as a short, not open circuit. Maybe a fuse double the mA of projected CCS after the rectifier is a good protection against faults, at least for the filter parts.

That is what i was trying to say. It aint working until the tubes are glowing!

Thanks for the patience.

Please count me in for 1 SSHV2 board soon as it is available, dude....

Do you take payment by PayPal??

Do you stock the semi and other parts for the SSHV2 as well??

Default sshv and srpp

Hello
Please ,can someone tell me if only one SSHV regulator can be connected to SRPP configured circuits of both channels ,without sonic degradation or each channel must be connected on dedicated SSHV regulator ,one Salas for left and one for right.Until now I have built dedicated regulator for each SRPP channel and didn't try single regulator for both channels.Anode followers are working great on single regulator but I have no experience in supplying both channels in SRPP configuration.Maybe such question is already answered on the forum but I can not find it.

Thanks

King4joy - I have you marked down for one.
I will be ofering Semi's at a minimum. The rest of the stuff-will wait for more feedback once the GB thread starts.

There is nothing special to SRPP. You make one regulator and you just try. In general we can't predict anything without any special info on each application, and we guarantee nothing.
