Sx-1250 Protection circuit bypassed.
I just bought this on ebay and was told everything worked fine. I never seen so much filth in anything. The am, and phono don't work and when I pulled the boards found someone had soldered wires across the power relay.
There is also a safty relay for the phono that i'm guessing isn't energizing due to the main power relay being bypassed. It energizes for a second on power up and down.This is my first pioneer and i'm looking for someone who can maybe save me some time. I'm going to finish cleaning the boards and remove the jumpers. Put it all back together and try and figure out why it was bypassed. Any direction here would be great. Thanks Jeff
