I just assembled an Ambika, unfortunately I had to de-solder the rotary encoder since the shaft was too short to get through the case. After putting in the correct encoder the switch function does not work any longer.
I tested the top two leads of the encoder with a multimeter – the switch itself seems to work (at least it does the same thing as the previous one I took out). Getting the other encoder out was a bit messy (just starting this DIY stuff), so my guess is I damaged the contact on the board!
Is there a way to narrow down the diagnosis?
Is there a way to “mcgyver” the contact on the board back to life (take away some of the surface to get a connection), or do I need to replace the whole thing? It seems that I could use the synth without that function and just use the buttons, right?
Thanks in advance, Stephan
PS. I just signed in yesterday, but I have been lurking for quite some time. Very nice forum! All of my other questions have been solved by just reading around here ; ).
