Case 567532. 03/01/2023 . Pioneer QX-9900 receiver . Right channel distorted like thunderstorm noise .

After troubleshooting using ” freeze spray ” for transistors method found 2 transistors 2SA726 in right channel driver board acting bad after cold application . All unit transistors 2SA726 changed to 2SA992 . They have same look but different pinout. Pay attention ! 2SA992 / KSA992 is better in parameters and performance.
