I'm the owner of a Philips B5X42A that I've just opened and started to renovate. To my surprise I found a capacitor connected to two lugs (lug 3 and 4) near the back of the radio that was shorted by purpose with a wire. When I then checked to schematics it also showed the same thing.The capacitor is C107 in the schematic (10nF). The short circuit over this capacitor also makes a short circuit over R101 (10kOhm) and C100 (80uF). Can anyone, with more knowledge, please explain the purpose of this circuit? It sure puzzles me.

 I am about to restore a somewhat neglected model but my first obstacle is getting the set out of its case. After removing the screws on the base, I find I cannot slide the chasis out of its case as the two speakers are in the way. Removing the speakers might be the obvious next step but their fixing screws are very inaccessible with the chassis still in place. Before I do this I would be interested to know if anyone has an easier way to get the set out of its box or if I am missing something here??!
