In Reply to: RE: Power-on funtion of amplifier on the fritz. posted by Duster on July 12, 2017 at 17:42:09
The switch or relay has been over-voltaged into a welded state. Same time as the fuses were blown.
This would be my first guess.
I would certainly test the amp with some speakers etc, before doing the work to find out.. as more than just a switch/relay may be fried.

An extreme over voltage/power surge could have welded switch contacts together, although one would expect the fuses to blow first! Relay must be okay, because he says it clicks at proper time. Or maybe it's just a cheapo switch and the mechanism failed. After all, it's not a Bryston amp, and they must save money somewhere.
Probably needs a new switch. Duster, I bet you could replace that yourself, even if you do plan to leave it powered 24/7.
berate is 8 and benign is 9
From what I gather, the Lexicon NT Series is the same as the Bryston ST Series. The only differences are cosmetic, not the parts nor design. I'll consider replacing the switch, but for now I'm simply glad it's up and running again (knock on wood) in the second system.
