I'm in the process of repairing a Ti2 with a broken MOD wheel. I found something super fishy on the connector board for the MOD and PITCH wheels. Seems like someone has added some extra soldering, which is shorting three pins together. The soldering looks home-made and most likely not an original work from the factory. I've got some pictures of the connector.
Here are the pictures:
Does this look normal, or just some soldering I should clean out?
The problem I'm trying to fix is that the MOD wheel is either at 0 or maximum. Zero position on the MOD wheel sends out zero, all other positions send out maximum.
The pitch wheel is however working fine.
I'd like to add that the pins that have been soldered are not the pins that are connected to the MOD wheels pot. And when I turn the MOD wheel I'm able to measure a variable 0 to 10k ohm resistance at the end of the cable connecting the wheels to the keyboard (after the messed up connector on the pictures), so the MOD wheel should be working. But this added soldering might still be effecting the behaviour.
Can anyone in here that's familiar with the internals of the Ti2s confirm if this soldering is needed or not?
