Just a quick follow-up... there's probably nothing wrong with your
I hope you haven't wasted too much of your time chasing this
'fault'. When the 78L05 regulator is replaced with a LP2950CZ-5.0
and R26 is changed, the self-test function falsely shows an "F2" fault code.
Unfortunately this wasn't realized until after a lot of Mk2 kits
went out, because very few people make that modification. I've had a
warning about this on my website's ESR meter hints page for quite a long
If your meter's reading the 5.6 ohm and 68 ohm test resistors
reasonably accurately and doing all the things it's supposed to do,
there's nothing wrong with it. If it still has a problem, please e-mail

Sorry for the inconvenience this has caused. :(
BTW, C10 is 0.47uF not 47uF.
