Look back at the pic in post #17. It shows the snubber installation as well as the jumpers.
Hi folks, I had a closer look a the power switch today and began to "tin" the connections when I realised that my switch has 4 WIRED contacts. (please excuse the mess of the wires, that I will sort later!)
The other switches I have seen only have 2. So my question is, which 2 points to I solder the cap & resistor to?
Those solder connections look pretty burned up. All of the connections good? I'm thinking it has been replaced in the past and they didn't put a snubber back in. At any rate, I think you could put the snubber between the. brown and yellow. Hopefully someone will confirm.
Yeah, that was me... I've still to tidy that up
Okay, that was my guess but want to be sure before I plug it in...
Someone has definitely been in there. I would replace the switch as well while you're at it.
Well folks, today I got the snubber cap and resistor installed and voila! The pop is gone!
I would like to thank you all for the help and guidance in this post.
Strange Marantz didn't install a snubber at the factory...
