  1. How hot do IDX NP-L7S batteries get when charging?

    Of course Trey. You're in the will. ;-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. How hot do IDX NP-L7S batteries get when charging?

    To: The Immoral Mr. Tees. I swear I wasn't bragging. Just trying to qualify myself for the soldering position. It was there at the gauge company that I truly learned to solder. It was the only job I could get at the time. I was 22 and a complete idiot. Now, I'm an idiot of a different sort. Sean, I was heavily berated by the tech support people over at IDX today. They had heard of what I was proposing and thought it madness. But I now have three dead batteries now (replacement cost would be about 600 bucks) and thought I might save some money by re-soldering new cells into these packs. It might be a fools errand I'll admit. :-)
  3. How hot do IDX NP-L7S batteries get when charging?

    Speaking of Re-Cell-ing IDX batteries: I saw an earlier post on Jwsoundgroup that mentioned this very topic, on condition that you were handy with soldering your own stuff (which I happen to be -- one of my first jobs in the tech industry was soldering nuclear density gauges for asphalt --- don't ask, I was desperate for money). I remember reading an earlier post about re-celling IDX batteries using Panasonic battery cells? But after searching, I failed to find the post. Does anyone have any practical tips and LINKS to order replacement Panasonic lithium cell batteries for my attempt? I have three older batteries that need to be re-celled. Thank you for any help you can give me! John

    Glen, I'm not sure. I try to be careful with them but that could be a possibility. I think I may need to recell this one. I've been using it for 7 years now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yeah I felt a few of the other batteries after they completed charging and they're barely warm. I think you're right. I'll retire this one. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Hey a random question for everybody? I'm charging my batteries for a shoot tomorrow and one of my NP style batteries, which is one of the oldest ones I have (initial charge date September 2010) , seem to be taking forever to charge. When I put my hand on it the battery, it was pretty damned hot. To be honest I don't really recall them ever getting this hot. I guess my question is: do lithium ion batteries get hot while they're charging? Thank you. I'll take my answer off the air. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. AVID S3 controller has a stuck fader?

    Thanks guys. I'll give this a try. Weird thing is that I shut off the system, and let it cool down (it was a particularly hot day), and now it's behaving itself. I'll keep testing. John

  9. CAS Comprehensive Letter of Recommendation?

    I see what you mean. I'll contact them and find out what they need. Thanks.
  10. CAS Comprehensive Letter of Recommendation?

    Thanks for the info! Comprehensive sounded so detailed and exhaustive. I didn't want to bog down these guys with a crazy homework assignment! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I always have to resist the temptation to be draconian about the matter of getting RT. But to punish all those ADHD actors and crew that can't hold still for a half a minute sounds so delicious, so decadent, you could practically spread it on a muffin and call it a cupcake.
  12. Hello All, I asked a few mixers whom I greatly respect to help me to apply for CAS membership. Graciously they have agreed to sponsor me. However, the application calls for a "comprehensive letter of recommendation"? Can someone tell me exactly what CAS is looking for in one of these letters? I'm assuming they want to know the work history of said applicant, but that information is pretty much covered in the actual application. What exactly does CAS want to see in that letter? Thanks for any advice you can give me! John
  13. Hey does anyone else have an AVID S3 controller board? The 16th fader just malfunctioned and just pegs the fader at +12 (you actually hear a thunk when it does it). Has anyone else experienced this? What's so annoying is that the board is less than 2 years old. I tried resetting EuControl but to no avail. I also powered off the machine and rebooted my system thinking that perhaps the driver was being wonky. After a bit, you can hear the motor in the fader buzz just a bit, then the fader pegs back up to +12 again Thanks!
