Silvertone 1809 questions. Again I am having issues with no B+ except for the output tube which shows high B+ I don't understand what the symbols circled in red .on the attached schematic image are. I assume when I installed the new electrolytic caps I miss wired or failed to wire the circuit correctly. If someone could explain what wires go to the three lugs on the volume switch it may be an area I made a mistake in as I had removed this switch at one time thinking it was a problem but was just dirty. If someone could help it would be greatly appreciated. Sorry if I sound confused but this schematic is much harder for me to read then others I have worked on.
Ron

You have approximately nine posts on the same radio, some of them dealing with the same problem (no B+).
You need to stick with one thread until you have gotten a satisfactory conclusion to your issue. Multiple posts on the same topic just wastes everyones' time and resources.

If you PM one of the mods (Marcc or Norm Leal) he can advise you as to the most effective way of consolidating your posts pertaining to this single radio. Mods also have editing/oversight powers not available to ordinary mortals.

Ron, congrats on getting it fixed.
You must have traced path of the B+ to where the voltage stopped, possibly at the coupling cap?
Or was it something else? Someone in the future, same radio, might be searching for an answer to the same question. 8)
