Replaced power tranny. Worked for weeks. Turned it off one day then accidentally turned it on half a second later. Heard a crackling and saw smoke. Power transformer is good. Its from the console version of the 5060. Found a B+ short. traced it to the bandswitch section where I can see sparks when I turn on the radio. Are the bandswitches made from phenolic on the 5060? If so, Im screwed. Will not be getting in there. Shocked Sad

Thanks.

You sure it isn't the power switch? It's in that switch bank as well.

David, the only time it doesnt short is when the radio is set on PA. (I have the german version).

Ive put my ohm meter accross the b+ and gotten 1-5K on it.
