    Mtx thunder elite 1501d amp troubles

    Alright guys so here's the deal I have a mtx thunder elite 1500 watt amp and it suddenly stopped working. I'm from a small town where no one deals with fixing amps, this is why I am on a this forum. I took it apart and noticed a cap gone and a couple that are swollen a little bit, I ordered a new cap and saudered it in, put everything back together and try it, still nothing so I took it apart again and took a closer look and noticed 3 of the MOSFET fuses were burnt so I replaces all 10 in that circuit. Put it back together and still nothing. Using a test like its getting power, the remote is getting power, it's grounded and the RCA's are hooked up correctly but the amp will not turn on, BUT I can hold the ex button and put it in demo mode where the lights go off. I know this is asking a lot for having no pictures as they are on my phone and not on my iPad. If any one has any idea what I can try next it would be greatly appreciated so I won't have to go buy a new amp!

    Note-- I did not change the caps that were swollen as I didn't think it would be a big deal

    Yes Jason I have called mtx about 4 times and they have been no help at all other then telling me the value number and what the part is I need on the certain board location.

    Mckerico maybe I will take that advice and try to find some one here in Canada if I get down to the last resort
