Schematic (or just R10) for Rampage AMP522A Car Audio Amplifier


I would love to find out the values on R 10 (resistor 10) on the circuit board. The values are the colors on the resistor (electronic component marked "R 10") it's near a capacitor just to give you a heads up.

I would also love to have the schematics for this amplifier. Please help! :)

If you have this amplifier you can help me out by undoing 4 screws and looking on the circuit board. After doing so, on the Red circuit board locate "R 10" ; "R" stands for resistor and provides reisistance within in the circuit.

Look at the colored bands on the Resistor and simply post what the colors you see. This helps identify the value of resistance (ohms).

I called Audio Vox and even talked to Tech support. They will not give me the value and want me to send this amp in for a 40 dollar fee (not including labor). This part (the resistor) cost about 11 cents at Radio Shack and two tiny globs of solder and I could have it fixed.

Please help... ! :)

    This item has been discontinued. I have only seen a picture of one other amp like this and It wasn't clear enough to see the resistor.

    It looks like I may have to give up.

2 years later... I just picked one of these up at a yard sale... R10 is actually a diode. The code is buried, but ends in N1.
Hope this helps!

Look at the color bands, they will determine the value. Last band color is the precision value of the resistor. You can find the color band values on many websites. The size of it tells you the wattage raring.

I'm fixing a vx2200d planet audio amplifier but it has a burend resestance and i can't see the colors. if someone have a schematic of this amplifier, please share it with me.

under the resistor ,there should be a value ,it may be silkscreened on the board . neighboring ones if the same size or opposite the burned one may have the value in stripes u can see , try ohm meter and check the burned one , it may not be "open" u can read it that way

Picture shaped like a bowtie, (shrinking)

Hello, This is your classic convergence Amplifier IC problem. Here is a way to deal with it. These are generic instrustions: 1) Get the schematic/service manual for this TV (You will need it because it contains the part numbers and component values you will need for replacement) 2) On the schematic/service manual locate the convergence amplifiers (STK392-110, 120, 150) and the biasing resistors (Write the resistor values down from the schematic) 3) Unplug the TV and remove the rear cover to expose the electronic circuitry. 4) Using the schematic/service manual find the physical location of the two convergence amplifiers (Usually attached to a big metal silver in color heat sink) (Basically it will look like two big black six sided flat modules with a lot of pins on the bottom (18-22 to be exact)). 5) After finding the heat sink and amplifiers remove the screws or the tension bar holding the amplifiers in place. 6) Using a soldering iron and a de-soldering device (either a de-soldering pump or de-soldering wick) remove the solder from the pins of the amplifiers and biasing resistors that protrude from the solder side of the circuit board. (Take into mind that you may have to remove the board in order to do this, use the instructions in the schematic/service manual to do this, and make sure you mark everything you remove to make sure you have a guide as to how to put it back) 7) After removing the solder from the pins off the amplifiers and the biasing resistors, remove the resistors making a list of the value, part number, and location on the board (all of this should be in the schematic/service manual). Then remove the two convergence amplifier modules taking care so as not to damage the circuit board. NOTE: The heat sink compound (the white goopy stuff) may have hardened and caused the module to stick to the heat sink, you will have to gently pry the module away from the heat sink, I have used a light application of isopropyl alcohol to dissolve the heat sink paste. 8) Once the modules are loose from the heat sink, you can gradually remove them from the circuit board. 9) Clean the heat sink off by using the alcohol and a heavy paper towel (remove all of the heat sink paste, and yes this is messy) At this point you have removed the two convergence amplifier modules and the biasing resistors and cleaned the heat sink. Now you will have to use your schematic/service manual to find the part locations, values and numbers you will need to replace the old parts I suggest replacing the biasing resistors first. 1) Sort out the resistors you will need and as stated in the schematic/service manual and replace them according to the schematic/service manual locations and part numbers. 2) Solder the components (resistors) in place making sure not to short out anything in the process. 3) Apply heat sink paste to the metal side of the modules one at a time and the put the modules into the circuit board lining up the screw holes of the modules with the screw holes in the heat sink, use the removed screws or tension bar to hold the modules down once in place in the circuit board and on the heat sink. 4) Solder the pins of both amplifier modules to the circuit board, taking care not to short out anything. 5) Reinstall the board to the TV, reconnect all cables removed (DOUBLE CHECK EVERYTHING) If all went well the convergence amps should be working, and you will need to realign the convergence of your TV, I suggest using the AUTO Convergence feature of your TV (Use the instructions in the schematic/service manual). All should be good now. Now these instructions are generic in nature but can be use for a number of Models of Projection TVs. In addition to this also make sure your Yoke transformers on your CRTs are functioning as they should, check the voltages applied to them. I hope this helps, Thank you, Shuttle83

Exploded 5 resistors need a schematic

I don't have the schematic but if you can send me a photo of the inside of the amp, I may be able to tell you the values of the resistors. Many of the class D amps are clones.

PG won't release schematic diagrams. Are the burned components resistors? If so, what are their circuit board designations (Rxyz)?

Wiring diagram

Most amps wiring is universal. If u need a high imput plug you might be out of luck they usually come in the box that the amp came in. The input colors should be White and white / blk for left side speakers and gray and gray / blk for right side. I also recommend dumping that amp right in the trash can , sorry to say it like that but that amp is a piece of junk you probably wont get much life out of it, they dont put out anything. Anyway, good luck if u end up using it.

P4004 - Blown Components

if burned components are on output stage or amplifier section on board..Then look at the oposite side of amp..Both amplifier section should be a mirror image oof componentc from other..that way you can know the values of parts.If they are on power supply section ..Then you might need manual if available..
