Re: Cordless phone, no power

Are you saying its taking a long time for the sound to come out of the speakers?? or that theres no sound at all?? If its taking a long time check the resistance of each speaker to see that a componet in the crossover or the speaker didnt short.If you take all the speakers and if theres supost to be a relay for protection and you hear it click then the amp is good or has an out put stage problem like bad poutput devices or blown driver transistors. Need alittle more info if you could Thanks.

I have an older creek 5350se. It has what appears to be bridging pins connecting the pre with the power sections of the amp. Can I connect the creek as a pre amp to a power amplifier.

Hi Lorne,

You can use the amp as a pre by removing the 'jumpers' - or as a power if required.

The 'jumpers' are simply used to connect (or disconnect) the amplifier's pre & power sections.

Hope this helps.

It seems that you have a low Hz feedback loop between the speakers and the tonearm/stylus.
Usually it's only a visual effect and very little can be heard.
In the old times there was a "subsonic" filter in the phonostage part of the amps to cut this out.
You could try a different placement of the turntable as this phenomenon is induced by airborne vibrations and a different placement could ameliorate this interaction...

PYLE PT2001X 3300 Watt Professional DJ Power.just had question about running this amp in bridged mode 4 ohms, here's some amp info 3300 watts total power bridged in 1 ch only.1650 each ch in stereo mode...


In bridge mode the minimum load will be 8 Ohm.
If you are using 4 Ohm speakers, it will mean you will give each side of the amplifier a 2 Ohm load.
Thats to much for this model.

Kind regards,

Creek SE 5350 one channel without sound

I think you will find that the fault is either a dry joint somewhere (have you moved it recently?) OR more likely a transistor. It might be caused by one getting very hot! Thus shutting down and coming back on when cool.
The best way to track this troublemaker down is to spary each transistor (in the left channel only don't bother with the other or Power section) with Servisol Freezer spray. Wait for the thing to play up then spray -one at a time- if it pops on you have got the bugger! To make certain apply a soldering to it and it should act up again. Spray again to confirm.

Yamaha brick 400 watt stereo amp. Sound has gone muddy!

It sounds like you have lost a ground connection, It is possible this is in your connections to the input such as your input leads to the amplifier. Check very carefully the shield or negative connection at both ends of your leads (it could even be the brand or construction of the connector itself as some connectors use a mechanical joint between where the negative and ground is connected and the part that makes contact with the amps input terminals).

If this is not the problem, the next most likely is that an internal amplifier ground has been lost - this can happen if the speaker positive makes contact with the amplifiers input socket. You should use a multimeter to measure continuity between speaker negative terminal and the input ground terminal - this should read 10 ohms or less, if not you could open the amplifier and look for damaged cct board tracks etc.

If the problem has developed slowly (over weeks) you could be looking at faulty capacitors in various parts f the powersupply and main amplifier boards - replacing these is indicated if the amp is over 10 years old and or has been used in confined spaces allowing high ambient temperatures to occur.

Connect subwoofer etc to nad 3020I stereo amplifier

Hi Info
You can use a 2 x male RCA to RCA female adaptor lead(what you need to ask for)  like this one 4d0dcde.jpg

use it to jumper your pre-out/main in connection on the rear, and connect an RCA lead to the Female socket on the adaptor lead. That will get you going. You can get them most places that sell electronic bits and peices. I am happy to answer any questionsa you may have

Creek 4040 Amplifier blown some speakers ?

I would suggest not using the amp before the problem is sorted. It may damage your new speakers :)
  1. It is possible that your input selector switches may be Noisy. What happens when you operate them, does it exasperate the problem?
  2. Noisy control pots may also be contributing to the problem. taking the lid off and giving the pots and switches with decent squirt of contact cleaner lube (I use CRC2-26)
If you still have issues, is the problem there on both channels?
If it is then there may be a power regulator issue.Is there a DC offset on the left and right speaker output(check with a DVM).

You can find a schematic here.

I am happy to talk to you more about the problem. I would need to talk a bit further with you, just ask away in here.

Cordless phone, no power

Amps now have protection circuits on them now to protect them from blowing the electronics. Speakers dont usualy have any protection and can blow quite easy. Usualy when they blow they short out or short to ground and then the amp overheats and kicks off. What you can do is un hook both speakers and turn the power on if it stays on then plug each speaker back in one at a time. If it shuts off again without the speakers then it has to be somthing internal already damaged. Bass and volume are the #2 killers of systems. If when its up loud and the woofer speaker is moving in and out pretty far its on the edge of blowing.
