My beloved Lightstar Reference amp (number 003) ceased output recently. All I could imagine was this 80 pound pristine treasure having to make a jarring coast-to-coast-to-coast journey for repairs. Thankfully, I PM'ed James for some insights and he graciously took time from Carverfest to supply the info I needed to work around the issue. I am listening to it sing as I type. WOW! What an amp! I can't thank James enough for the help. You just can't beat Carver audio enthusiasts.

The workaround fix is shown in the mid right of center of the photo below. Thanks also to Dr. Bob for including that simple piece of circuitry. Whew!

What was the cause and what was the fix?

Re: Thank you, James!

Cause = relay from front panel touch switch inoperable.
Fix = turn off/bypass front panel touch switch with internal slider.
