SO3 Control Board V2.1 Capacitor Location?

Post by madhatter » Sun Oct 21, 2018 8:47 pm

I moved my SO3 into a spare bedroom, since it is only going to be doing diamond drag engraving from now on, and it happens to be near a small refrigerator, and last night it disconnected twice when the fridge stopped running. The control board is V2.1, and I watched a video where someone showed where to solder on a 1200uF 50V cap, but it was a different version of board, and I want to put the cap in the correct location.

Should be similar to the Stepoko --- check and see if Github helps?

I'll give it another shot before I contact support. :-)

Here is a V2.3 board with the capacitor installed.

Here is the V2.1 board like I have, with solder pads in the same location.

Before I put a cap in that location, I just want to double-check to see if anyone else has done it, or been told those are the correct solder pads for the capacitor.

Thanks!
