Hi Dan,

Thanks for all the great products you have produced. I used a Kulp 16 and 8 to run my show this year and they worked great!  I am having an issue with my PB pocket scroller in my tune to sign though. I think it is static related. as it seems to work fine sometimes then the display breaks up when scrolling the tune to information. If I move my hand anywhere near the board it will start working again. sometimes it will work for hours and then start acting flakey again. in fact just removing the back cover of my sign causes the display to break up. I took the cape off the PB and cleaned the contacts and the seemed to help for awhile but it started acting up again. Any suggestions on how to shield or ground this board so it works properly?

Thanks!

John

I... have no idea.   I've never really seen anything that sensitive.   I know my own TuneTo had some interference like that from the cheap power supply.   I had to make sure the big 30A power supply was mounted far away from the pocketscroller.   Also had to put the PocketScroller on it's own 15W power supply to make sure it had a nice clean/steady 5V.   The two of them cleared up all the issues for me

Thanks Dan! I have a small power supply that should do the job. I will let you know what happens.

Well? Well? Did using a separate power supply for the board clear it up?
