Fixing a dodgy Plumbutter banana plug

Author Fixing a dodgy Plumbutter banana plug

I recently acquired a Plumbutter 2 second hand.

The Grey out on one of the Gongues will only work if I push the Banana plug to one side with my finger. When I let go it stops working.

Is this an easily fixable thing, or a get in touch with Patch Point kind of thing?

Thanks seriously, i just don't get it

Open it up and reflow/add solder. Might do the rest of them while you're in there.

Ah thanks, I actually came across this thread after posting.

Also I started un-doing some of the screws and it started working fine. Maybe it was a bit of pressure somewhere. If it plays up again I’ll have a look at re-soldering but it it ain’t broke...

But it is broke. An intermittent connection doesn't fix itself. These are easy to resolder.

Yeah...open and resolder all of the jacks. Nearly half of mine were dodgy which was quite disconcerting, but eh, nothings perfect.

Long shot, but as I've never soldered anything before it feels a bit ominous to start on my PB.

Is there anyone London based which could give me a solder 101?

Also I don't actually own one but did look at buying something (Hakko I seem to remember)

Youtube is your friend. Plenty of soldering tutorials.
