I just assembled a Shruthi and got to step 11. When I powered the machine only led 8 went on, so I checked if I had swapped the 74hc165 and 74hc595. Yes, I had and put them in the right place. Then I tried again… on all the leds went on for a second and then led 1 remained lit for a while.
Started to search for bad joints and if there was something that could tell me what went wrong.
Then I discovered that I had put one of the DIP 8 sockets backwards, IC1, on the SMR-4 mkII filter so I removed it but unfortunately it became two parts instead of one whole. So I bought a new one and soldered it to the board and put the ic in the socket.
But now when I try to power everything, nothing happens. Not blink of flash and all the leds are dead. So question is, where do I go from here?
Thanks in advance for any tips on how to get this thing working!
Kind Regards Khyber
