fisher receiver weak left channel...

picked up a silver faced fisher receiver today model no 143? says sears audio by fisher, all lights controls etc work but the left channel is weak, opened it up and looked at all the circuit boards found one resistor that looks suspect(kindve burnt and black in the middle) has the fisher hybrid ic pa 501 power modules, i cleaned all the switches and pots(no static) so if replacing the burnt resistor does not fix the left channel any ideas? i measured the dc offset and got 9.5 to 10.9 in the left channel and 44.5 to 48.5 in the right... ill try to post a picture later thanks for your help!

The PA501's have a very high failure rate, now that they are old.

By the way, was that 9.5 millivolts or 9.5 volts???

I do not know if this will be any help; my fisher receiver uses a PA500 which is a Sanyo STK032.

If the hybrid power amp module doesn't fix it, then I strongly suspect an electrolytic capacitor in the signal path.

I am of course assuming that you've cleaned the switches and controls with Caig DeoxIT.

Unable to verivfy this PA501 to STK082 for sure it just shows in some interchange for transistors. The STK082 is rated for 35 watts @ 8 Ohms if that helps at all. Also if it is correct it interchanges to a NTE1327 on their site and as of right now there happens to be a lot of 2pcs of the NTE1327 up on eBay for a really good price. No, I have nothing to do with this auction just doing some reasearch on your question / problem.
