Default Re: Philips P3G38T Stone Dead

Hi Jay

I would suggest changing all of those horrible AF117 transistors to those Russian equivalents, and provided the IF's have not been twiddled then you should be OK, from what you say it burst into life when the AF117 transistors were tapped, this would then suggest the driver stage and output stage are OK, I would also check the printed circuit side for any dry joints and even minute breaks in those tracks.
