Yes - like the proposal that the manufacturers of white goods be made responsible for recycling their products when they fail.

What is also needed is some sort of control over programmed obsolescence as well. One of my printers stopped working a while ago, because it was programmed to do so, not because of any fault. Absolutely ridiculous.  Ouch Dead Disapprove

Dont suppose your dad could enlighten us on what he found and what he replaced? Any pics? 

Makes this a useful resource for people having the same problem as you.

Did anything re: component fix information ever get explained?

I agree with Jon, that would be a really useful resource given the discontinued nature of the 4-1300

Unfortunately it's now no more than a door stop. My Dad spent a lot of time trying to fix the amp, but without any detailed information from Thomanns 'service' department or schematics detailing components it became un viable.

That’s a shame :/

In fairness to Thomann, it’s an amplifier that they rebadged so I doubt they would have access to the schematics themselves even if they wanted them. I can’t recall which Far East vendor they came from but someone (I think on here) identified them once, possibly the same outfit that build the PL3000 for them.

Thomann *might* have had access to board-level spares but I would imagine their “repair” scheme consisted of sending back shipments of failed amplifiers for rework then using the reconditioned amplifiers or new units as warranty replacements. That seems to be a fairly common practice for Far East OEM’d equipment. (At least it’s better than recycling them into the landfill…)
