Re: zoom 9002 - replaced caps - now won't power up
I purchased a 9002 on ebay and it arrived with the accursed charge pump failure. Seller offered to refund, but I love these little guys and I hate to see 'em die. Still working on it, but Mark - you are so right about the traces on the board - they lift by barely touching them. Fortunately, there are holes for soldering the new caps, but you've really got to take note of the positions and gently desolder the old ones out like a surgeon. Also, there is another electrolytic cap on the board above, such that when you are about to close the unit, it interferes with closure - you may need to check and re-check it before you finally drive those screws home.
