Blacet PC mounted jacks

Post by dhamaryder » Thu Oct 09, 2014 4:40 pm

Does anyone else have a problem with Blacet modules that have PC mounted jacks? After a certain amount of use(a couple of months) I find I always have to shake the cables to get them to connect properly. Just wondering if the problem is with my plugs. Although, I don't have the problem with any of the modules that have panel mounted jacks. hmmm, just wondering, it's been on my mind for awhile.

Try cleaning your plugs with alcohol or Windex. Skin oils and dust can cause havoc with smaller plugs especially...

I'm out of the frac game now but I never liked how the pcb mounted jacks were not screwed to the panel. I don't recall ever having an issue with them, but was more concerned with long term reliability.

After 9 years, the ones on my uLFO are still fine but a couple on a multiple are loosey-goosey :-/ - raw electro-funk!
