    Hello,
    I have a GLD T80 in which I just replaced all the fader banks, and is working perfectly, except the encoder knob near the touch screen (the one that controls whichever parameter is touched within the screen) is….stuttering badly. If I pull up or push down on the knob while turning it works better, but still not perfect. If I try to turn it without pushing/pulling, it hardly works at all. I found the part onlne: https://www.fullcompass.com/prod/513340-allen-and-heath-ai8567-gld-80-encoder-no-switch

    But, before I tear the thing apart again, does anyone know if this is a simple solder or tab connection or is this thing directly connected to the circuit board trace? If so, I should probably just send it back for repair but I would rather spend $12 than a few hundred.

    Thanks!
    Chris

    Hello ctrumpower23!

    Encoders are soldered direct to the circuit board, but it will be replaceable. I think that excatly that encoder might be easy to replace.

    Here is some pictures where you can see (pic 3) that encoder is placed small circuit board next to the touch screen.

    I have replace one of those EQ-encoder, as you can see one of those pictures. 😉
    Hope this helps!
