I have a palomar -2 that the pre-amp quit working on. Anyone know where to look to possibly fix it?

Check the switch first for a broken wire or cold solder joint. Trace all the wiring and make sure it is all still intact. They do go out and most of the time they don't really work well when they are working. All they do is amplify all the noise including floor noise and any other noise as well as audio. Some work well and some aren't worth the repair. But start with the basics. Like looking for broken wires and such. Or the switch itself might be bad. You might be able to bypass it and see if preamp is working and switch it bad at least. Just jumper the switch to make the pre amp come on without it and see what happens. Hope some of this might help. Tracing the wires will usually lead you to the issue. But I would bypass the switch first to make sure it's not bad. Then go from there. A multi meter will be needed. Good luck.
