Only 2 leads from the 2sd525 and the 2sb595 ? I'm pretty sure the thermistor is connector to the emitter and base so where the heck is the collector pin? As far as how the thermistor is attached I'm not positive, prolly hard glue coating over top. Maybe use a small jewel screw driver to carefully try and pry or exacto blade and carefully scrape.

The metal tab on the TO-220 case is the collector.

Those 2SB/SD numbers were selected, you cannot use off-the-shelf parts. MJE15030/31 will work, 32/33 are better, don't use 34/35.

Hi changsecho,
Like djk said, those are selected parts for high voltage. You can not use normal parts with the same number. His replacement suggestions work very well.

The thermistor can be removed with a razor blade. It needs to be reattached to the new part.

Dude, did you ever take an English class? prolly means probably, is this correct? prolly sounds like a small fish or something.

hey anatech... yes I am "edgumacated" and can spell. I sometimes have a bad habit of using short form for typing purposes. I fig that most peeps would understand prolly means probably. fig=figured and peeps=people. I will try not to post in short form anymore and run my posts thru.. err through a spell checker.

I had the spelling corrected in the title so future searches on Adcom would show this thread.

He may not have seen the post before I had it corrected.

Hi Bigred,
Yes, I checked it and it was already corrected.

My earlier comment was merely in the spirit of the many people who do not speak English as a first tongue. For respect of our members who may have to work more to read the forum language, we should try to be clear when we post. This goes for everyone.

Thank you for that. We moderators are simply here to help.
