Default Re: Leak Stereo 30 Plus

Great news, it is now fixed, turned out to be a transistor T8. Checking all the transistors was the first thing that I did, and today decided to check them again. T8 showed up as faulty but when I checked it again it said it was OK and based on this I decided to change it. I'm assuming it was as Silicon suggested, that components may test OK on a digital multimeter but then break down when subjected to the full working voltage in the amplifier. In the end it turned out that there were two faults P5 and T8.

I would like to thank everyone who offered help in this matter, I'm really grateful. I've certainly learnt a great deal by going through this process, especially the introduction to the dim bulb tester.
