It’s a small shop in town (I’m from Belgium), his stock is what he scores from local sites or what people bring in. It rarely has any real good stuff, but once in a while you can find a rare gem for cheap.
This was the only unit he had, it was unused but sold it cheap since it was pre-owned. As far as I could tell from his information he did not know all that much about it.
I might just return it and get my money back, but I’m trying to up my soldering skills and this sort of stuff does interest me, so maybe I’ll keep it and try to fix it if I can find out what is wrong with it. If I do keep it I’ll take it apart and take some pictures but I’m inclined to think it’s not gonna be a VGP OSSC.
Either way I will likely order an OSSC from VGP when they’re in stock 🙂
Could the problem be due to bad soldering? Maybe if I check them and resolder where needed?
