just curious, but why is there a jumper cable from the remote to the ground??

RF charges flat rate pricing for amp repairs, its not pretty. But i'd check out ARC and see what they can do for you

Um, RF may be a friend of the site and forum, but I do not think they actually have a technician on the forum who checks and does what you are looking for. I would try to contact RF directly instead of 3rd party.

The dried white stuff is probably thermal paste from the old owner taking the board completely out. (it gets messy) If the caps are bulged they are shot. Also it looks like two of those mosfets are crispy where the solder joint is.

Hopefully the old owner didn't attempt to fix it when he had the board out.

Good luck.

factory or not im saying they look liek they might be busted. if the top of the cap is flat then its probably still good but if it has a dome on it sorta then its probably broken. but it doesnt make a difference no one can really tell whats busted on an amp by looks. unless your board is burnt of the fets blew up where they burnt or broke apart theres little visual tells of broken parts. and even if there was thats never ever the "only" problem

make sure to tell whoever your getting estimates from that its an 05-07 T10001bd. alot of repair shops wont go near those amps with a 10ft pole because replacing fets is much harder then alot of amps out there.
