This Electro Harmonix DRM16, got power, but instead of playing it did nothing. Checking all the components I saw, that the tempo potentiometer was pressing on the IC underneath. That IC also had corroded pins and is resonsible for the start/stop and osc. No wonder why its not running. I cleaned the IC's, potentiometer, rotary switches and jacks. Re-flowed the socket pins. Working fine. Like always I share my restoration experiences and pictures with you.
There are lethal voltage exposed in electronic devices. Unless you know what you are doing, don’t try this. If you following along, you doing so at your own risk.
