Carvin : The Resurrection

I had come across this a couple of power amps at a local Church garage sale. Along these came a dead Carvin HT-750. It powered on but no sound! and a few seconds later… that smell when you know something is wrong. The next day i took it apart and could see no damage to the transformer or output section so it was then that i new that the problem lied in the power section. Low and behold upon first glance the dreaded “melted” silicon.IMG_1110It is a TIP31C. Upon further inspection I found a couple more problems.  IMG_1123 Well till i get the parts.              TO BE CONTINUED…IMG_1125IMG_1129IMG_1124
