Hi George

Not 100% sure about your exact problem you have asked about. . Is it that all three amps go down simultaneously, or has each amp failed in the same way over time? If all are presenting this problem together then I would suspect a preamp problem, pushing DC voltage to the power amps. If you could please confirm this.

Static sounds are generally created by a failing component, usually a transistor or capacitor going leaky and allowing incorrect DC voltages to pass and upset the operation of the circuit. In turn this is firing the protection circuit, causing the amp goes down for the count. These sorts of problems can some times be easy, and then other times difficult to find. Generally, the best approach to fault finding this sort of problem is with localised alternate heating(hair dryer) and rapid cooling with CRC Freeze Spray. It is the best way to find isolate intermittent parts failing in this manner. Then you know what to replace. If you are not familiar with board level repairs, this may be a job for a HiFi specialist service guy to fix for you. Let me know is you need further assistance. Cheers.

Left channel static

I have seen dirty switches or pots cause constant static. I would get some contact cleaner and try spraying it into all switches and pots, and work them to clean the contacts. Also, check to see if there is static in a low-level output such as the one for a tape recorder.

All it will be is a bad solder joint inside the unit. Very easy to fix with a soldering iron. If you are no good with a soldering iron this should be a quick and cheap repair.

Hafler 9505 amp, has noisy output in mono.

Hi Don,

When you bridge the outputs , do you connect only to the ( + ) speakers terminals for your output. This is what the manual says to do.

Marshall Amp # 8040- Static and breadkown no sound

Take a can of air (like they use on PCs), blow out the gain potentiometer, then try to squirt some good quality contact cleaner into the control and see how it responds. MAKE SURE you use contact cleaner suitable for use on PLASTIC components - use the wrong product and it's good bye amp.

MAKE SURE the unit is unplugged when you work on it. While you're in there, look around for any discoloation indicating that there could be a bad connection somewhere. I am assuming your speakers aren't blown....:)

you sure you didnt flip the bridge switch on the back? its the tiny little black switch under the bridge output plug, if you have it set to "bridged mode" any input sent into the right channel produces only a hum, only left channel input works.
