Got a lead 2 and the 5129 is not getting any signal. Just hum. Looking for the schematic.

I do not have a schematic for that amp, nor does this site so I need to ask if that 5129 is the driver board with the square Transistor heat sinks on it and box style 5 watt resistors, or is it a preamp board?

Also if you hook up a voltmeter set for D.C. Volts to the amps speaker output do you read any voltage?

Do you mean that the preamp board is not passing signal?

Check the two power supply voltages. Then read the voltages at the outputs of the preamp chips. There normally is no (or little) voltage on the output pins.

The schematic is a the Music Electronics Forum.

The amp was used to play a stereo through before I got it. Im sure the person blew the transistors out plugging in the stereo. The preamp signal is just hum, and increases hum when turning the reverb pot up. The board has 2 IC chips, unsure if they are damaged. I would like to rebuild with new transistors and maybe the IC chips. Looking for a parts list to order up the parts.

How are you determing that the preamp signal is all hum?

If the preamp signal is all hum, then so will the output into the speaker sound the same , is that what you mean?

You seem unwilling to do the test outs that Bill and myself. Have asked you to do so that we might help you out better!

That board should have 3 ICs. Only 2 of them will stop the signal from passing, I1 and I3. I2 which is a dual opamp is used for the reverb driver and for the trem low frequency oscillator.

Yeah, that's the right board. I1 has been replaced earlier and a socket has been added.

I2 is the 8 pin 1458 in the center of the board and I3 is the round TO-5 (I think) one near the edge of the board. I3 is a house numbered LM3080 transconductance op amp.

Check transistors T1 and T2, then check for dc voltage on the in/out pins of the 3 ICs.
