Default Proton AM452

Dear Everyone

I am trying to fix an old Proton AM452 amplifier that belongs to a friend of mine. He told me that the amp blew up his right channel speaker. When I turned on the amplifier, there was a humming noise from the right channel speaker. I suspected DC leakage, and when I measured, true enough there was a gradual build up of DC voltage slowly rising up to more than 30 volts. I do not have a schematic. I initially tested all the preamp and power amp transistors and capacitors and they appear to be OK. Can someone help me out with this problem. What can cause a DC leakage into the output? Please help.

Thank you

Carlosraj
