Thanks Mac for the reply.
If you are referring to pages 64 to 66 that describe the protection circuit bypass and the power block failure, I do not believe that this is the case with mine. If I had an output section failure, I would never power up or operate properly. Additionally, I applied the two jumpers on the protection ICs that would circumvent a protection "failure" code.
I'm just fed up with this receiver...it's been a nightmare. Its on ebay for $150, shipped, and includes a free service manual!
P.S. the "MosFetMan" user name stems from my love of MosFets for output transistors...second only to mass quantities of KT-88 tubes.
