Tx-999 fault

Postby Astroscope » Tue Feb 18, 2014 10:17 am

Hi guys. Newbie to bga. I have a tx999 which was working perfectly. I then bought a solder station and wanted to measure the tip temperature if the solder. I out it against the heat temperature of the tx999 and the temperature sensor went be bezerk. The reading is out of the roof and gas never settled since. Please help. I spent a lot of money on it.

Apologies for that.
I just bought a soldering station and wanted to measure the temperature of the soldering station to make sure it was giving the correct reading. SO i turned it on and also turned the TX-999. I touched the iron tip against the temp sensor of the TX-999 to see what temperature it gives out. But immediately the sensor on the TX-999 went out of the roof and has not reset to normal.

So now I've opened up the TX-999 to see if anything has blown like a capacitor or something, but no sign of anything being blown. Please help :(

Umm maybe I could give the temp sensor on the tx999 a good clean with ethyl acetate? Btw what is TC?

Thanks

The trouble is the top lamp sensor is also going bezerk and giving out of the roof readings. Please advise.

Oh hang on. If there is solder on the temp sensor of the tx999 ethyl acetate won't clean it. I'd have to suck the solder off using solder wick?

I bought it second hand and in great condition. Worked like a charm and I've used it twice. It's my fault for breaking it. I can't call the guy I bought it from. Do you know if there is a manufacturer of this machine in the uk?
