There are a few tools, which you will need for trouble shooting.

  • A good VOM ( volt, ohm, milliamp meter ), also called a multimeter, is indispensable in measuring voltage and resistance. Most any of the inexpensive meters will do.
  • A United States 25 cent piece, or similar size coin, sometimes called a quarter. Hence, the quarter test!
  • The printed owners manuals or Adobe Acrobat versions.
  • Small hand tools.
  • The LT-1 which is included with the starter sets.
  • Patience.
