Do I need a resistor with a minimum wattage? As all I have is thousands of 1/4w metal film resistors to hand…
If I can use a 1/4w, I’ll re-flow all the joints and check it over, if not I’ll make a tiny order of 1 resistor and 1 new pot (just in case) lol!
Is it possible at all that when I bent the solder tab over to bring it closer to the pot casing, that the tab may have loosened from the carbon track some to make it intermittent as it is?
I had a play on it today and used an eraser wedged underneath the knob to apply the little pressure and all was sounding great! ha
