I just picked up an SB200 from an estate sale that looks like it sat in a
basement for 3 years!
Anyway, upon firing it up, it appears to put out 500w into the Bird on a
dummy load. After about 3 minutes of use, the HV bleeder resistors start to
smoke from overheating. If I shut the amp off and let it cool, it will do the
same again after a brief period. HV looks good on the meter, and it RF-wise
it it ok.
Is it possible that if the caps in the HV p.s. are leaky or bad, the result
would be a higher - than - normal dissipation through the resistors ?
The caps are the old-looking paper style. Anyone have a recommendatio for
locating 6 new caps, and their specs for this amp ? Unfortunately, I don't
have a schematic for the am. Can anyone herlp with a copy of the schematic,
either on a web site or an emailed JPEG GIF etc..
Thanks in advance for the input....
