DK-3 controller

Post by tuawcxs » Thu Oct 29, 2009 8:20 pm

I have 2 DK-3 Vixen clone controllers from a mount I bought from Apogee 10 yrs ago. Both have lost RA and DEC outputs. Both rectifiers in the controllers drop the 12v input to 6.5v. Both controller LEDs work when the buttons are pressed. Do any of you guys have any experience troulbeshooting these type of controllers. I believe this is a DD-1 clone. There are no schematics available for these anywhere and there is black epoxy covering the 4 ICs on the boards. Any help would be greatly appreciated
