Question about Carver Audio Players & Recorders
I've owned four of the amps from this series and in no way are the power switches the weakness in this product. (A-220, A-753x, A-760x and an A-500x.) If yours is "broken" it had to be an environmental issue or single unit anomaly if yours hasn't held up. I don't get why people are asking your about the output characterstics of the amp because I don't see anything about THAT in your question. Go to Ebay.com and search for "Sunfire Amplifier" and look for a gentleman who's taken over "Rita's" Carver repair service. They both were affiliated with Bob Carver (you can also search for Bob himself under the seller name "audioshopper") and someone can direct you towards somebody who might (MIGHT) have a NOS power switch available. There have to be a ton of switches that will perform the same function, they just might not be a perfect Chassis fit. There's a solution to your problem. If nothing else, straight wire the switch on and plug the amp into a power strip.

You may have a blown channel. Check for fuses inside but I don't think that it will help. Repair if the channel is dead is not worth doing as the amps value is probably lower than repair cost.

if it is not working then there is another serious problem , and it could be the amp IC or the volume IC but tests will need to be done to determine what is causing the failure , but it does sound like amp IC as a suspect since the rear were not even working , did the volume seem different when turning it up or down before the center quit or after the center quit?

FIrst of all, in bridge mode there is only one channel. The "bridge" means that you combine the two channels together to get a single more powerful amp. The swollen part is probably nothing. Sometimes the plastic caps cup like that. Unless there is a specific problem with the amp, don't worry about it. Try placing the amp into stereo mode and testing each channel. If both work, there is no problem with the amp. If for some reason you need repalcement capactors, contact Peavey directly. They supply replacement parts.

SOURCE: Right channel cutting out.
connect right channel speakers to amp left out if the problem fixed you will have a problem in amp itself.
if the problem remained you will have a problem in speaker itself test first with new cable and second with speaker cabinet,

magnetic field supplies are different than conventional types, check that the thyristor is working properly
