Thanks Glyn - much appreciated!

Firstly, I checked the brightness / contrast voltages on the decoder and they are normal enough - brightness 0.5 - 3.1v on pin 18 & contrast 2.3-3.2 on pin 19.

Then I looked at TS535, and the voltages are a bit off here:
Again according to the diagram, I should have 12.3v on the base, but have 16.9v.
At pins 5 & 9 on the decoder connector, (which goes to pin 8 on the TDA3560) I should have 1.1v but have 5.4v.

I've checked the resistors surrounding TS535 (R535, R534, R529 & R540) all are ok.

I wonder if the overly high voltages are a symptom or a cause of the problem?
