Hello to all.  I have a PYRAMID model PS-36KX that the voltage meter has died and need to replace it.

 Does anyone know where to get Pyramid parts for their power supplies... google search does no good, all it lists are new or used, complete units, no parts.
 
  PYRAMID support is nonexistant also.  

  I have the flimsy little booklet that came with it
  and the schematic is very small, and has no parts list.  

  I think that I shall never buy anything else from
 Pyramid, especially power supplies..

  Thank You, Ben...AE4TR

Is this a digital meter or an analog meter? If it is the latter, these are so simple that there isn't much to fail in the meter itself.  I'd suggest checking the lines and connections that go to the meter.  There may be a solder joint that gave up or some corrosion, etc.

A smoking section in a restaurant makes as much sense as a peeing section in a swimming pool.

It's analog.. not much to go wrong you say!  Yep that's correct. Not much but the meter it's self.
When there is no movement at all and with my trusty
digital fluke meter, I measure voltage on the pins at the back of it, then the only conclusion is that the meter is bad..  

Any more bright ideas?
