How you doing oldtimer, I mean oldhvymec. That's just the problem; I can't do a schematic; I cannot even send a photo because there is no place to upload a photo. And why I can't do a schematic? Because I don't know what goes connected to what. We have a wire just "swinging in the breeze" that is loose, one end from the positive of the LED and the other end ?? Don't know where it goes! I can see the high voltage wires B+ going into a 5-lug connector and soldered to lug #1. Lug #2 is empty. At lug #1- it has also connected to it, 2 resistors in parallel bands RED-VIOLET-YELLOW 5W each which connect at the other end to lug #5. Lug #2 is EMPTY. Lug #3 is GRD. Lug#4 is EMPTY. At lug #3 is the resistor in question: 100K 5W ..... and the other end is BLOWN UP. So what do I have? I have one leg of a resistor blown up and I have one side of the + wire of the LED in the air.
IF I HAD A SCHEMATIC or a pictorial I could easily see where they are to be connected. Right now I can only guess. I am counting on your vast experience to show me. Was that you that sent a link from the UK? Let me take a peak at it and see if I can solve it.
Hope to hear from you shortly. I like your commentaries.
