6-1 voltage help
« on: May 07, 2019, 03:49:54 AM »
Hi, I have a 6-1 lister and having trouble with my voltage. the voltage is producing 70 volts and not sure what to check or how to adjust the voltage. I took ever wire and connector out and cleaned the connections one by one making sure not to put any thing in the wrong spot and made sure every wire was tight in the control box and is still putting out 70 volts. there is a component in the box that looka like you can adjust it. it a spool of wire about 3 inches long with a band over it with wires attached. not sure if that's the part that need adjusting .i will try to ad pics tks

Go into photoshop, or whatever, there's several you can down load for free, and crop off all the edges of the photos that aren't relevant, then reduce the quality. Even if you don't use an editing programme very often, I certainly don't, it's not hard.

Search the site for earlier posts, there's loads of great stuff on here ref. gennies and output. Almost certainly you'll find something to get you started.

When you open an image on your PC - whatever program/app it uses - somewhere there will be a little box that tells you at what percentage the image is displayed to allow it to fit on the "page" of the screen.  Something like 20% or 30% is common

There will be a "resize" tool on the page somewhere

If the image is displayed at, say, 30% to make it fit on the page - then use the resize tool to change it to, say, 30%.  It should then display at 100% on the screen.  If it doesn't then make it a bit smaller, maybe

Once it is at 100% to display on your screen, save it (maybe with a different name so you know it's a small file"?)

Then it's a good size to post here

Try it.  It's easy

Hi LRob

I made a quik wiki for you, with some pics.

The way is the same for most languages, buttons and text are in the same place.

Pics are in sorted: open app, click edit img, click crop image, click edit again, click resize, enter percentage to achive 900~950 pixel wide (to fit site), click save (or save as in order to mantain original)

If you cant get the software to crop photographs register with dropbox. you can easily upload photos and simply post a link to whatever photos you want to share.
