Some Novice Troubleshooting Tips For A Sovereign...

Hey Ron, if you don't think this link is proper for the accessories sticky then feel free to delete it. It might be a stretch for this sticky I guess, but it looks like this sticky isn't filling up fast anyway and so I figured (?) it might not hurt to have some basic troubleshooting stuff in a link right at people's fingertips? If you don't feel that though then by all means delete it and I understand.

Here's a thread with some basic troubleshooting tips to rule out or find things like a bad switch or pot (and how to clean or fix those), loose wire connections inside, bad solder joints on circuit board components, and so on. Often in devices using electronics if it isn't working or is working erratically it may be only due to one of these simple problems or even something even more simple like a bad battery or dirty battery contacts. By my experience it's usually not a real complex problem like a component failure, but rather something that can easily be found and fixed.

If anybody has any further troubleshooting threads or your own advice for troubleshooting the Sovereign please share and post them in this thread link below. Coil troubleshooting thread links have already been posted in the coil sticky before, and ID meter troubleshooting tips have already been posted before in the ID Chart/Meter sticky too.
