Hi Bob,

I also have one of those receivers and found your message while googling 
for a manual. On mine, the power supply also was dead. At first, I found a 
shorted electrolytic on the power supply board. Replacint that got some 
positive results but there is still a problem and I suspect some more power 
supply issues. There is a resistor ( R556) near the two N-chan mosfets that 
has overheated and I can not read the value. Can you tell me the value of 
that resistor if yours is ok?
