Anywhere I can send two of my " phaser 1 " modules in.
they are not the solid ones.
1 is black, other white, both have the front switch.
Checked & cleaned contacts, looked at Circuit Board.....
all looks soldered well.
Still dead.
I know they go for around $50 + $5 shipping online.
But would be nice to get these working.

Replace the electrolytic capacitors in them, including tantalum. Check the solder joints. Clean the board edge contacts with a pencil eraser. If that does not do it, you might be better off selling them for parts and replacing them. Now anyone that builds FX might be able to fix these, but I have not had a great deal of success with them. I have fixed one or two that way, but many of them are something else more complicated.

I am sure anyone that designs FX can probably figure these out they are similar to a phase 90 or other pedals of that era.

Thorny speaks truth. If you find a pedal guy that will work on it, they will find that the MPC phaser is very similar to E-H Small Stone as well.

If you can get it fixed, they are particularly good sounding phasers too. But if you can find a good working one for $50 go for it.
