Haven’t posted in awhile and need to show a lot of work that has been done. The Kenwood KA-8006 had the remainder of it’s refurbish completed but there is still a short issue in the power supply. Originally the issue was the right channel was cut out and C9 on the power supply was blown which was easy to point a finger at seeing it is related. The two transistors on the power supply check out good and the resistors are in spec. Next, it is on to the diodes to make sure they are not shorted. Here is the schematic of the power supply and you can find C9 between the two transistors. This shows the use of a dim bulb tester in powering up vintage gear of unknown condition. I will show how a DBT works in another post, but there is a ton of info out there about them. Soon as the short is found this amp will be ready for testing and break in.
