Roland spa-240 tripping.

So I have this Roland spa-240 I would like to use. I build and design recording equipment bit repair amps too. I can't figure out why this trips whenever it turns on.
I have the schematic but can't figure out where to look. It seems they designed later on a protection circuit that they implemented in later versions. I've read of people modifying them but at this time I ust want it to work. Apparently the schematic is too big to attach here. Has anyone worked on these and or had the same issue?
Below is a link to the schematic:

Thanks in advance

Turn amp ON, without a speaker load, and measure for DC voltage across each channel speaker out terminals.

Any significant DC there , say >2V or so, will trigger speaker protection and relay will switch speaker OFF

Even better, since if DC present those terminals will be switched OFF , measure DC from the large 0.3 ohm 5W emitter resistors to ground.

Designation varies according to version, but in the first schematic they are R29/30/31/32 , the track joining them is the amplifier channel speaker out.
I found the problem while testing R30 the .3 5watt. I feel ridiculous that I didn't see this before.
So I have some bewildering to do.
