It appears the right channel is intact.

Q7, Q10 on the left are still good. The pico fuses on the backplanes are good. This is also the amp where one of the backplane locators came loose during shipment to Canada. Therefore, the backplanes will be liberated and brought off the chassis and be inspected to make sure no washers are bouncing around between the backplane and the chassis.

Left side backplanes lifted and all outputs tested( 2-bad), right side backplanes lifted and inspected for rogue washer (none found), outputs tested-all good...

There is a trick to putting in the outputs. A strong magnet and a long T-handle allen wrench........and at times a lot of patience.
When building a WOPL, before I install the backplanes I will test set the outputs and put them in order on a card so the outputs are matched to the socket. Due to the small tolerances in the solderable sockets , each output can have a slightly different lead pattern, so a test fit can relieve a lot of stress when you are ready to install outputs...

Welcome bud....a lot more to write up on this one. I have checked all resistors, semiconductors etc in circuit and nothing APPEARS wrong, but it sounds like total shit. Low voltage power supply is good, main PSU is good. I have not isolated the protection circuit yet, but the 1304, 05 pairs check good in circuit......

Interesting ......

Definitely have some problems....IIRC, this looks like when I had wounded Q7's or Q5's a few years ago...
