Got to the part where I test the boost converter and I'm only measuring approximately 9.5V at the output. Input transformer is the one with the kit, I measured it's output at 10V.
I saw the previous thread, with someone with a similar problem, and he had a bad solder joint on the boost chip. I double checked my solder joint on the boost pin and it looks good. Then I double checked the rest of them.
Here's a top and bottom view:
It beeps when I plug it in. When I attached my USB oscilloscope to the boost pin, this is what I got:
Am I reading that wrong or is it saying it's getting a 20V peak to peak signal? If so I bet those clipped tops are from the scope's input protection circuits (it says 20V ptp max on the parallax USB scope itself). At this point I'm over my head.
I've plugged it in a few times now and it beeped every time, although I haven't done anything with it since I took this scope screenshot.
