Default No output from MRP-M1000

I bought my Alpine MRP-M100 a few months ago, and its worked great until a few days ago.. I was playing music at normal listening levels (no where close to clipping). Amp wasn't getting any warmer than usual. The it just all together stopped playing. I pulled over to check it out. The light was still on, And the sound from the sub (Alpine Type-R 15 Dual 4ohm coils (2ohms at the amp)) sounded similar to coil rub. It was very quiet scratchy sound. The checked out all good.

Checked the voltage at the amp, Everything was good.
Removed the amp and took the back plate off, Everything inside looked good and tight. Only thing out of the ordinary was the leads on one transistor. they looked a little golden (as if they got a little warm).

I was referred here by "I am an Idiot"

your sub shouldn't be making any scratchy sounds. did you check the coils with a multimeter to verify that the sub is ok? or do you have another speaker you could hook up to the amp just to make sure it isn't the sub

Yes sir. The sub was the first thing i checked. Both coils checked good. Tried 2 speakers and another sub woofer. All made the same sound.

Are you sure you are getting a signal from the RCA?

Yea. I even took it to my local car audio shop and he hooked it all up on his test bench. He used all Known good power, ground, RCAs, and speaker.
The sound that comes from the speaker Does go along with the Bass... Its just not (pleasant sounding) bass.
Very very quiet and scratchy/squealy

Can you take a picture of the inside of the amp and post them here?

Perry, do you have picures?

First thing we need to do is make sure the power supply of the amp is working properly, Can you locate the Rectifier diodes? Probably a 3 legged device that looks like a transistor. They will be mounted to the heat sink. THey wil be connected directly to the secondary windings of the transformer. If you can locate them, power the amp up and check voltage from center leg of one device to the center leg of the other one. You are looking for DC voltage.
