Hi Bigred,

thx for clearing that up anatech... I kind of took it as an insult.
That's the problem with typing a message. No inflections. That's why I clarified my comments late. Should have been sooner.

When I get snippy, you'll know. In general my intent is never to upset or insult another member. Thanks for understanding.

-Chris

Hi Bigred,
Kind of hard to avoid Canadians around here. They're everywhere!

What section of Canada do you hail from? You can PM me for this if you'd rather.

remember the Global Electronics discussion? The repair shop I worked for years ago used them and thats basically why I was using them along with convenience (reasonably close for sameday pickups to complete quick repairs for those impatient types)

Well from your original post you just stated that you were replacing the driver transistors and needed help on the thermistor issue.... didn't go into any detail of your prob and any diagnosing etc. I'm assuming that your replacing the drivers because you checked them and found them to be shorted or something right? Going on the assumption that the power supply and front end is ok and you traced your fault to the output stage and found a problem with the drivers and you got outputs coming then I would have to say yes your on the right track.

Hi changsecho,
I think there are a few requests I have of you.

Firstly, when you post, please use punctuation and caps when required. We are not going to waste time reading your posts a couple times to understand them.

Secondly, there are a number of threads on servicing these amplifiers. Please research these threads and ask for clarification as you need.

Thirdly, please let us know what started you on this. What was the original fault? What have you done to troubleshoot and diagnose your amp so far?

If you do these things, we will happily assist you.

-Chris
