Details

2019 Update: Kits are now compatible with either Lynx 1 or 2.  Kits include zener diodes for both through-hole (Lynx 1) or surface mount (Lynx 2) usage.

These kits contain replacements for the common failure points in the Lynx power supply circuit. Surface mount tools recommended for installation!

Parts include:

  • New Zener diode
  • MOSFET IC - the usual culprit for no-power-on conditions
  • Two 3906 transistors - another culprit for no-power-on conditions
  • Power jack - these have internal switches that can fail, causing a Lynx to work on battery or DC power only

 

Lynx 1 component locations:

  • ZD1: Zener diode (uses through-hole type diode)
  • Q4, Q13: 3906 transistors
  • Q11: MOSFET
  • R56: 30 Ohm replacement resistor, not needed for all Lynx units.  This increases regulator circuit voltage slightly for picky Lynx units that need a few more tenths of a volt to work.

     

    Lynx 2 component locations:

    • D13: Zener diode (uses surface mount diode, installed with stripe towards R74 / TP19)
    • Q7, Q8: 3906 transistors
    • Q12: MOSFET 
    • R74: 30 Ohm replacement resistor, not needed for all Lynx units.  This increases regulator circuit voltage slightly for picky Lynx units that need a few more tenths of a volt to work.

     

    Product history:
    2019-04 - No longer splil by Lynx 1 or 2 - one kit will work with either version
    2018-02 - Added 30 ohm surface mount resistor
