Another Thorn offering this time in the for of a 9905 offering badged up as a D|E|R (Domestic Electric Rentals). The 9005 is virtually identical to the 9000 using a parallel switched-mode power supply running synchronously with line. A conventional transistor line output stage except that it uses the power supply switching transistor to conduct the latter portion of scan with an efficiency diode conducting the first part. This was known as SYCLOPS (SYnchronous Converter and Line OutPut Stage).
A simple fix this one R735 a 3.9R resistor to the 24V rail was O/C, replaced that and the 24V rail was restored.
