I need some help. After many years of faithful use my AU-717 has gone on the fritz. The left channel preamp output is dead.
1) Amp section is fine
2) Switches on front panel are all working fine - R/L audio out of F-2720 board ok
3) coupling switch on back is working - i am getting continuity on both sides of the switch when in the connected position
4) power protection relay makes good contact on both right and left
so here is the problem the left channel seems to be dead. There is a VERY little audio if i crank it up. Intermittantly If i leave it on for an hour plus it will pop - then power protect off -Then come back on and then the left channel works.
i dont have a schematic but it seems the problem is on the F-2663 board
Anybody have a clue what i should look for - the 2663 board is a bear to pull out
