Got the same problem with upper DC volts than it shows on the schematic so I look at jumpers and it was on 200 volts but got 230volts at my power I put the 240 volts jumper and the Vdc downs at the right power like on the might take volts at your power receptacle and if you got 110VAC you might put the jumper for upper voltage and put the 120VAC jumper.
Jumpers are in a sealed bag fixe to the cabinet on the right of the transformator.
Sorry for my bad English and hope that could help you

Rectifier bridge might to be the schematic it is wright that electronic component got a 10 years old life long. I also change it all.

Those 3 Bridges rectifier are same, and their references are only the Volt coming in...10Vac 16Vac and 50Vac. You also better change C1 and C2. As you can see on the pictures, wires are only plug on them by a pod but I've seen a video from TNT Amusement that preconised to cut them all and sold wires directly on parts to avoid looses connections. I Don't do that at all but I will...

As you can see on pictures I also shunt all ground (white) wires as it is preconised on to avoid bad connection who might burns transistors on A3 board.
