Hi you are absolutely correct
Hi I am Tech Michael how are you tis evening
I see you are offline so I will switch us to Q & A it works better in my opinion;-)
Your observation re.Electrolytics is interesting.The reason I bought the 773 was because the tuner on the 75 failed.When the tuner on the 25 went down,I looked up on the net,it came up with the failure of 2 electrolytics.Following the video on Youtube,I located the offending components lurking under a secondary PCB,sure enough,the tops were convex,replacing them brought the tuners back to life.I find it very disappointing that Panasonic are cheese paring at the expense of reliability:to add insult to injury,they actually MAKE the wretched things! Back to my 773.I'll have a close look for any bloated caps.,if there is nothing obvious,I think a trip to to the dump is called for!
Once again,many thanks for the pointers,not to mention the speedy reply!
All the best,
