In the late 70's, over half of the records in Billboard's Top 200 were recorded and/or mixed using MCI equipment.

hey ev1.

I am trying to hook up the power supply to the JH636 that I am working on with the help of brian roth.

anyone out there, that confirm that this is the right order for the leads? esp the sense wires? there is nothing in the manual that really tells you how to hook this thing up.

thanks.

Well its hard to tell without actually knowing or seeing where are those cables going to, if you want to completely be sure about it, i suggest taking the cables out and measuring the voltages, if not (and thats probably what i would do) is just fire it up and see what happens. After you fire it up check the voltages to make sure everything is were its supposed to be.

It will be hard for someone to actually tell you if its right or wrong by just seeing the connectors

Are you sure the manual doesnt say anything about this? i have a 500 series console and it has a wire pinout to connect everything...

i got it fiqured out. thanks

and not the 636 manual is a joke, it does have the sizes and gauges, but its not clear as it should be.

anyway, its all good.

did you do alot of work to your 500? i finally got the 636 powered up and it lights up but there are alot of the little lights not working, etc.

Ohhhh man!!!!, you dont know what you have coming, its not only the little lights not working, you have to recap your entire console to start with, i dont know about the 600s that much but lets talk again in 6 months and you'll know what im talking about....

Weather permitting, I am driving to Tulsa this Thursday to check the desk over, and test the various modules. Chris and I will keep everyone posted!

Best,

Hi Chris

for your info, this is how my up and working 600 series is wired. Notice that the big white cable you have connected to the chassis on mine is connected to carry the zero volt line back to the PSU to give a nice chunky return. The chassis connection on mine is a lighter gauge cable.

There are some extra cables on mine that take power off to other other additions such as headphone amps and better quality line amps etc. and the cables have all been reterminated/crimped due to some of the old ones becoming intermittent

You should be able to match the other colours up against mine as well.

Good luck with Brian - he has a good reputation and seems to know his way around these consoles.

Regards

Mike

Re: the big white cable on your picture:

I have just noticed that the cable has the number '80' written on it so it should definately be connected to number '80' on the tage strip.

Dear Mike,

Good call on "80"...I didn't bother to scroll down the pic that Chris posted to see that wire connected to the chassis screw! That would have definitely caught my attention.

My road trip to Tulsa has been postponed by freezing rain, sleet, and tomorrow....snow! Arrrgh.

Best,

Bri
