What size is this pot?

Recommended Posts

I busted open the 4 gang pot on my 15 year old  promedia v2 400, unloaded half a can of contact cleaner, and could not fix the scratchy sound that also cuts in and out. 

I can only get 2 channels to play at once.

 

Anyway, how do you measure the size of the pot? What size replacement do I need to find?

 

The blue body is a hair under 15mm.

 

It has 12 pins. 

 

Original specs = KIE b50k x4.

 

 

If I need to solder wires, what kind of wires will I need?

 

Could I possibly solder a 2-gang pot and wire it to the other 6 pin holes? (see 2nd pic)

Welcome to the forum.  Based on the subject title, I was thinking more along the lines of...

Hard to say.  You'll see that KIE is a manufacturer of pots and other things.  You should look there.

 

By the numbers, you have 50K pots. The b might indicate audio (aka log) taper.  I say that just because they are most likely audio taper in this application.

 

Wire?  Anything will do.  I've used pieces from a CAT-5 cable.

 

Overall, I believe this is more trouble than it's worth.  But repairing equipment has its own rewards.
