    Ampeg SVT Classic (SLM) Bias light and fault problem

    This is a customer's amp. Ampeg SVT Classic built by SLM. I fortunately have all of the old SLM schematics, because I used to do warranty work for them in the late 90s, early 2000s. The amp will go into fault mode if pushed hard. Red LED for bias pot 1 will glow red continuously EVEN IF...
