RE: RPTR: right output is half volume...

"De-Exit",, Oops, I meant to say DE- OXIT, this stuff is available a Radio
Shack or a good electronic supply store. It works wonders.

Zoe, do not, I repeat do not, I repeat do not, try your first soldering
experience on your repeater. First of all you need a very good soldering 
which are expensive, the cheap electric kind you can  get from radio shack
are not capable of the kind of sustained heat needed to cure a cold or 
solder joint problem on an audio device, if that is indeed your problem. 
first try a deoxidizing spray like De-Exit as oxidation can cause all 
of fuzzy sounding problems, volume drops etc.. And , oxidation, rust, and
corrosion are all problems prevalent to coastal climates. If I'm correct 
live in SF? Foggy SF? nuff said.  Also make sure all of the nuts on the
input and output jacks are tight. I've sometimes had loose input jacks 
weird crackling and I believe the jacks on the back of the repeater have
those black plastic ones that can be tightened by hand, and also can 
loose. Also I have minimized my the amount of plugging and unplugging I do
with my repeater. I leave it in my rack, wired to my mixer. But do try to
get it looked at by someone with experience. Call Real Guitars or Haight
Ashbury Music, Or Leo's Audio in Oakland for a referral.

Yikes. I discovered that the right output of the Repeater is almost
half the volume of the left. Also, there are pops and crackles when i
wiggle the cable (yes, checked the cables)

I fear soldering needs to happen? I've never done such a thing before
but I like to try new things. Has anyone on the list ever opened up the
inside of their Repeater?
