Question about Audio Players & Recorders
The driver board keeps burning out transistors when a signal is applied, it had 4 stuffed output transistors when i got it ,i replaced all 8 of these these but it burnt out left side of driver board when signal was applied, i replaced those then i applied power it was ok as before until i applied signal,this time it was right side, 8 transistors burnt out .ihave since found a dicky varistor? double diode? on the regulated power supply & protector board! would that be the cause of my woes? what do you think! i have had some suggestions from ginko,but i think he needs more info (here it is) regards ross
Check for open resitors (All Values)..also make sure that any diode stacks (Varistors) are not open or shorted....mostly make sure you have replaced the BIAS POT! Lastly U could check for open traces and bad solder joints..also look for tiny solder bridges under an eyeloop magnifier on foil side of PCB>especially after replacing multiple components.

Without seeing the amp nor having the service manual in front of me, it sounds like you have a severe offset problem. There is either an open resistor or transistor in the early stages. With the output transistors removed from the unit, look around at voltage levels to determine where the fault is. I will try to locate the service manual. Can you post the parts that you have replaced?
