Just a post to calm down while changing the two valves of my Zoom G9.2tt guitar effects board. I bought these several months ago, but was afraid until now to proceed and on right account : no less than 34 screws and 3 connectors to remove. Some of the screws are horrible to reinstall especially the ones fixing together the valve base, the cover protecting it and the mainboard.
As I am writing this, I already changed and fixed one of the valve and its cover, but the second one refuses to go in its slot : something seems to block its insertion on the base and I’m afraid of twisting some of the 9 pins.
Can’t believe that such a maintenance task is so complicated. I’m about to write a mail to Zoom with a “You made it on purpose, right ?” at the end of it.
So, an advice : if you have a G9.2tt and plan to change the valves for the first time, be sure to have very good reasons to do so !
Now back to work, hoping that this f*****g valve will kindly go into its base, finally…
Cheers and… any testimony of a similar experience is welcomed, just to assure me that I’m not the only one !
