    Hey everyone. Thanks for the help with my Marshall DSL 100 amp. Honestly, I'm disappointed in this amp. It's only 6 months old and has been used at most 1 hour a day. I'm not gonna pack this thing up and ship it off. I have all the test equipment and experience to fix it.
    A little bit about me. I'm a boilermaker at the present time, work 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, for months at a time. I'm away from home most of the time but I make a shit-load of money. Plan on retiring at 67(2 years from now) and devoting the rest of my days to becoming a musician. My passion is electric guitars and have built 5 from kits and they have turned out pretty good. Recently purchased a Yamaha MODX8 synthesizer.
    In my 20's and 30's I work on Motorola communications radios and the oldest of them were tube radios. If anyone knows what a 1st Class Radio Telephone license was I had one. Before the invention of the phased lock loop oscillator the only way to keep a radio on frequency was somebody had to turn a knob all the time.
    Anyway glad to meet you all and thanks for the help. If someone knows please leave a link for a schematic here if ya don't mind. Thank and enjoy your day.

    Welcome to the forum Michael.:cheers:

    Is this an older DSL? That will make a difference.
    The schematic is here:
    https://drtube.com/library/schematics/69-marshall-schemas#JCM2000-DSL
    Read this:
    (specific to defective circuit boards in DSL amps)
    https://drtube.com/en/modifications/jcm2000-stable-bias-mod

    There is some specific tests you can do so if you need to know give us a yell.

    Welcome to the forums Michael!
    Like the sound of retirement soon for you.....sorry to hear about your DSL woes. I've had a few, yet without the kit or know-how to do anything, other than send it away....
    A recent one, in my case.
    Enjoy, these are great forums.
