Weller DS701E soldering-desoldering station repair

Weller

Gelbanana had some free time on his hands and he decided to try and repair an old Weller DS701E soldering-desoldering station he had laying around. The problem was diagnosed to a couple of bad capacitors. After a quick replacement, the station started working as expected, with the exception of the desoldering iron heater.

While waiting for ebay parts to arrive for my DC load project, I thought of having a go at attempting to fix the Weller DS701E solder/desolder station which I’ve gotten it a while back. I have no idea when this model was produced and googling for datasheets and manual comes back with nothing.

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
