Hi all! After doing part one of Skunkie's A50 mod...every was great for about 2 months. A few days ago it went silent. Turns out it blew the 250v P4A fuse. I ordered replacement pack of 10 of them. Replacing the fuse, it dows turn on but after about 1/2 a second goes dim again because the fuse is blown. Tried with 3 more and same thing. It's not the tubes (took them out, put a new fuse in and turned it on - same thing happened - blew the fuse). So, does anyone know how to find out the source for the power xformer (transformer)? I'm going to look there next. The Electrolytic capacitors all look ok to me (no bloating or charring).
I feel like the xformer might be the issue.
If anyone has any other ideas, I sure would appreciate it! Thanks!
