FET10e Channel Noise
Hello all! New user looking for assistance troubleshooting a fet10e. Recently right channel began "making noise". Narrowed down with O-scope to sinusiodal inputs resulting in 1/2 wave rectified output. Further checking, it appears the output transistors Q8, Q9 are not biased on (comp1 voltage is ~0.4v, while on good channel it is around 0.88v). I suspect component hfe drift, possbily requiring adjustment of pot or component replacement.

Anyone have any suggestions? Thx.

can you use that pic and write measured voltages in few critical places

the more the merrier

OK, much easier for me to make a little spreadsheet. See if you see what I am thinking - Q7...
