Ice Tube Clock - Display is not working.

by Mexico on Mon Jun 30, 2014 11:53 am

Hello,

I recently built the Ice Tube Clock (fun challenge btw) and all the tests are passing but I get nothing on the tube display. It's not that it's really dim, it's just not lighting up at all.
Boost Voltage is correct. The piezo beeps. Bias voltage is correct.
Please help!

The Q3 test is worth trying. Also, some clear photos of the front and back of the main board. And a closer shot of the solder side of the tube board.
