Greetings:

I have a Magnavox 1500. Internet photo is close but not the exact model as I don't see the MUX. The Sams Photofact MHF-24 covers only the receiver (R240-01) schematic and parts list. Sams makes no mention in the MHF-24 book of the transformer power supply or the (8) TO-5 output transistors. Does anyone know where I can find a schematic and, hopefully, a parts listing for the Magnavox Amplifier A596-71?

I've checked on-line, looked at possible Columbia and Phillips designs but nothing even close.

Thank you, John

If you search... no spaces, no hyphens. Lol

Hi Greg:

This is a Magnavox Receiver-Amplifier with matching speakers and a turntable. As I learned from purchasing the Sams MHF-24 the Model / Assembly number is 2K8886. The unit has a chassis R240-01 for the receiver / pre-amp and a A596-71 for the power supply / final amp. Sams MHF-24 has no mention or schematic that the Model used a power supply / amp. Not all that unusual for Sams.

It is the power supply / final amp (A596-71) that I have not been able to locate any information on. That is why I asked if anyone knew of a schematic for a A596-71 or if there was an identical assembly with a Philips or other company chassis number.

Thank you.

John

Thank you Greg:

I had found the article about the resistors, which I never would have suspected looking at the components.

I'm especially grateful for the A595 Series Amplifier schematic and parts list (4337). I have to review that schematic with the actual A596-71-BB chassis that I have. First glance is that they are close.

John
