first thing to check - is there 5V from 7805

after that, regular things - check for cold solder joints, and - most important - how's eeny 9140 looking - still isolated from heatsink, and still firmly bolted to, and still alive

twiddle trimpots for 1/8 turn forth and back , and if that solve the thing, replace them ( re-setting everything, logically)

these days all brands of trimpots are equally trustworthy

I was fixated on Bourns, but after few bad ones ditto from package, started to ignore brand, while proceeding with checking each (before soldering or sending to someone else)

Thanks ZM. I will probe the points. Hopefully leaving the channel amp on with this defect isn't going to kill it further.

I ordered my CineMags back in march just before they were shut down. Received them 2days ago. I talked with Dave who was always really nice. It was not an easy restart for them. They are about 60mi from me. 2 days total transit time.
Yea, we can probably go direct on this side of the pond

Now I have to wait for Antek's
