Just picked up a pair of Carver PT-1250 Power amps that need repair. one is complete the other is a parts unit.

Anyone have schematics and I know carver amps are a little tricky to work on. Any advice or pointers beyond amp repair 101?? Some models i know have that triac system for the power supply and i am aware not to bypass it as it is "firing" the transformer. advice like that.

I will dig into them and get a handle on there internal condition. The parts chassis is missing the covers and i can see it is full of D555 and B600 outputs.
