Jeff, yes that goes out a lot and should probably be replaced even if it checks good. See if you have Q7N5, Q7B5 & Q7A3, these can all cause audio problems too. -Clint http://orpheuscomputing.com Clint Hamilton, Owner Orpheus Audio/Video & Computing Tech-Assist Administration http://tech-assist.org techassist@xxxxxxxxxxxxx sales@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx purchasing@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx repair@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 4orpheus@xxxxxxxxxxxxx (alternates) orpheuscomputing@xxxxxxxxx pchardware@xxxxxxxxxxxx (PLEASE include previous correspondence if replying to this email!!) ----- Original Message ----- From: "Shoreline Electronics" <jstielau@xxxxxxxx> To: <techassist@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Wednesday, August 15, 2001 7:55 Subject: [TechAssist] Mitsubishi VS5007R Audio Problems Make : Mitsubishi Model : VS5007R Chassis : V11 Problem : No audio when set is first turned on...slowly comes up as set warms up (1/2 hr or so). Audio is good at the L & R Monitor out fed to an external amp. We are suspecting a problem with the mute circuit. Q304 mute control is listed in my Tips as a popular failure but we were curious if others have seen it fail this way (i.e. working OK after warm-up) We'll be pulling the board today to verify but would like to hear if others have had this symptom? These sets are difficult to take readings from when installed in the cabinet...not much room to work!
