So, the 4.7K is grounded. The NFB resistor has continuity to ground where the wire meets the 100K resistor. I think that’s to be expected, no?

Check the tail and 470R really well. You should have 4k7 plus whatever tail value you have when probing from ground to where the 470R and tail meet. Then make sure the 470R value is right and not a 470k. The 100k NFB won't read 100k in the circuit but you should get a reading when probing where the 100k NFB connects to the 4k7 and the output jack or impedance switch.

I’m seeing 26K where the 22K tail resistor meets the 470K resistor on pins 3 and 8 of the PPI. Reading with reference to ground.

So, 22K plus 4.7K equals...26K.

That resistor connected to pins 8 & 3 is supposed to be 470 ohms, not 470k.

Damn, Coffee!!! You are correct!!! I’m gonna change the resistor and get back to ya...

Well, that was it! Couldn’t see the Forrest through the trees. I can’t believe I couldn’t see that.

Thanks for the help, Coffee!!! I really appreciate it!! I wouldn’t have noticed that for a long time.

This is gonna sound stupid but...do you drink Starbuck’s coffee, Coffee??

If so, are you still at 620?

Glad we found the problem.

I did drink Starbucks for years until I found a coffee that tastes better, is cheaper and takes less to make the same size cup. That made it a win, win. I still go to Starbucks when I'm on road trips.
