Sony 5.1 receiver model:STR-DE345

Sony 5.1 A/V receiver model:STR-DE345,year:Jan 2000.No power only relay
click I found F901=3 amp fuse to be open when I connected a 100 watt
bulb inplace of F901 and pressed power button the light bulb lit bright
and still no display.
I tested most components with my Fluke DMM series II model 29 and they
tested ok,like the five 0.22 ohm dual emitter resistors and since they
were ok obviously the five output pairs of MP1620 & MN2488 were fine
but I still tested them.
I could not test IC501=STK350-230 as I would have to tear the whole
thing apart to get to the trace side of the main board to take
measurements.
I could not find any Sony common repair tips at:

Despite your previous testing, my money is on one or more shorted output
transistors. These often also get emitter resistors open, and in turn when
that happens there are often bad 2SA988 protection circuit "gate"
transistors as well, even some small resistors associated with them.
