K8098 PIC defective

I´ve bought the K8098 Audio Analyser Kit from a reseller on ebay.
After building it, I now have the problem, that the Display is not showing anything! But the light goes on!
I have a lot of skill in soldering because I am working as a technician. So there is no problem with the soldering joints or any part as I can see so far.
I realy believe, the PIC is not working.
Where could I get a new PIC for the Kit here in Germany?

Since I did not bought the kit directly from Velleman I am not able to open a ticket!

Thank You!

Best Regards,


Hello Martin,

You can order the PIC via Your local shop where You bought the K8098.
Or You can send a private message here with your postal address, so We can send the PIC via Post.

Thank you for the fast reply!
I have checked everything again, voltages are okay and also could not found any other faults.
I already have opened a ticket now and will wait what happens within the next days.

Thank you so far!

The PIC was replaced and the unit is working now!
Thanks to everyone!
