     I recently purchased a Sencore LC75 that was "in good working condition" at a hamfest. I guess "good working condition" means that it will measure L and zero ok, but not measure C. Sencore wants $325 + parts to fix it.

     Anyone know of a good repair service out there that would repair this for a reasonable price?

tnx & 73

Open it up and start looking for burned parts. If you're lucky, it will be a stinky obvious part, the trail of most charcoal...

Those are great meters. It's worth fixing, but I'm not sure it's worth $325...

Amen. Just do a quick visual. I repaired my own Wavetek 3000 RF generator. When I opened it up, it had a socketed ICs 4558 or some other 741 dual knockoff. Anyway, I counted the chips, and figured I would replace all 24 or so. So I ordered them. Well, I fixed it with the first 2 that I replaced. Now I have 23 extra chips! Rat bastards! LOL
