Quote from: Enzo on May 03, 2022, 06:25:25 PMI can't read yours, but I have the G100-3, which looks the same other than power.May I suggest, just unplug the speakers? The schematic and parts layout shows the speakers plugging into the rear panel jack.
Quote from: g1 on May 04, 2022, 12:55:00 PMEnzo's approach would be the simplest. But if you really want to automate it, there is already a relay engaging the speakers, you could just toggle that.The type of switching jack you mean is probably with 'isolated' switch.The switch could replace the connection between D112/C183 junction and R1998/R198 junction.I believe that would leave the protection function via pin2 of IC111 enabled.Full service manual attached.

It's also supposed to be able to prevent over-current but I'm not sure if that function is being used. (see datasheet attached)
