Morley zx2e hot pcb
#1
    Hi all, has anyone seen the pcb on the door card staying hot , so hot the pcb has browned and if you left your finger on the spot it would burn . I thought it was just 1 panel but when I checked a site that I have 3 of the same, all 3 had the same hot spot on pcb , left hand side up high on rear of door card pcb. I will try to attach image of same .

I think morley must have gotten the purpose of a “fire panel” mixed up.

Can't say I have ever noticed this but I will look out for it next time I'm on a site with a Morley.

Don’t come across Morley’s very often but the rare time’s I do they tend to have that too. Terrible design really.

Yes it is common with the Morley panels if the panel is sited in a hot environment it can play up

Morley called me today and explained that they used to use wirewound resistors for the LCD display and they get hot , this is normal and nothing to worry about .
