No sound through my AMC 3050A

I've recently moved my amp to a different location, and after the move I get absolute silence out of it. I tried using a few different inputs but I'm afraid something is fried within... The power on button lights up and seems ok, but I get no sound. Do I need to go to a shop? Or is there something I can check? Thanks, Alon

Re: No sound through my AMC 3050A

Hi, I took the device to the store I brought it from, the technician was amazed that the AMC was broken. Apparently, it is one of the more reliable deviced around. He has checked the fuses and he was again amazed that they checked out OK. He ended up replacing the main board and it works fine now (naturally).

Re: No sound through my AMC 3050A

Strange problem. If you have moved the equipment carefully, reconnected all cables and inputs properly in the right sockets and terminals, i don't see any reason why the amplifioer should not work. And if Power is Ok, Amp should work. Pls recheck all connections properly once again.

Amc amp fuse keeps blowing

Fuses blow when there's an overload. Suspect a faulty semi-conductor device somewhere.

Adcom GFA 7500 problems

My right channel went out on my GFA 7500 and the problem was TWO blown internal fuses. Each amplifier inside the GFA 7500 has two fuses. In order to get to the fuses you must first take the top of the amplifier off by removing the screws using an allen wrench. Then put the top back on.Turn the amplifier over and remove most of the screws from the bottom to access the fuses in the bottom of the amplifier. There are two different size allen wrenches on the bottom. Be careful to not drop a screw inside the amp and make sure you line up the screw holes that hold the amps using a small screw driver to push the amps into position. I replaced all the fuses on the top and the bottom. AdCom sells the fuses on their site.

My samson servo 300's sound keeps cutting out, want to spray some electronic cleaner but not sure where ?

Yes; It maybe the protection coming on and off. This means there is a short in a speaker wire , or a blown speaker. The amp has 2 options for speaker hook up.1/4" plug and direct wire. If you are using direct wire it is possible to have frayed ends hanging around and can cause a short. You can test the speakers by unplugging them at the speaker, before you turn on the amp. Then turn it on, if the clicking still persist's turn off the amp and disconnect the speaker wires from the amp . Turn the amp back on. If the clicking still persists there is an internal problem with the amp. If not then you defiantly have either a wiring or speaker problem . You can test the speakers by using a 9v battery . Hook up the speaker wire to the speaker and put the battery on the other end of the wire, you should hear the speaker pop and see it move.If it moves it is still good. Note* this is also a good method of making sure your speakers are in phase. The battery is marked + & - the speaker will move forward when + is applied to the + of the speaker. make note of which wire is the +. if you get one speaker backwards it will cancel the sound of the bass. so hook the + to the red on the amp. Hope this helps you

Hi ! I have a Mc Intosh MC352 and my problem is that I have it hooked up with my B&W 802s. And i notice one side is louder than the other. I checked my Wires an everything seem s fine. What's the...

Swap the speakers around. If the sound stays on the same channel and doesn't move with the swap, then the amp has a fault on that channel. If it does move to the other side the speaker is the problem.

If it is an amp fault you can track it down using a insulated tool and the buzz test. You simple touch points on the good channel with the tool and in places it will buzz. You compare that by touching the same places you got a buzz (on the good channel) on the bad channel instead and if it doesn't buzz or it's weaker then you have located the problem.
You can also check the voltages with a meter in the same way. As the voltages should be the same on the two channels.

My amc 3050a over heats then the fuse blows, this has just started happening does anyone know what might be causing this?

this may be due to the fault that the output is overheating and exceeding the currrent limit set on the fuse . Hence the fuse is blowing off. If the amp is working normal after it coold off and after replacement of the fuse, then the overloading of the output needs to be checked.check the rating of the speakers. Do not use the amp inside a closed cabinet. If possible use a good ventillation , a fan and try out if the amp works fine. If so check if the soruce is producing any distortions to thermally run the outputs. reduce volume level , and check the heating. once you have located the problem of the heat proceed to isolate the section. helpful? Good day

Speakers stopped playing

if the speakers are wired in series, if one goes out the other one wont play either. series is when one wire of first speaker goes into amp, then the other wire of first spkr is connected to one of the wires of second spkr, then the other wire of second spkr goes to the other conection on the amp. kinda like forming a chain. use a 1.5v ( AA, AAA, C-CELL)battery to check your speakers. connect one wire to + side and the other to - side of battery. they should move either in or out. if they move they are still ok. this wont cause them any damage. i use this method all the time to check for spkr polarity.

Guitar amp make large crescendo-like noise, loud pop at end.

Same loudness, no speaker? This sounds (no pun intended) like a filter capacitor shorting out. Open it up and VERY CAUTIOUSLY look for what is making the noise. Filter capacitors can eject hot stuff. Very dangerous.
