High volume cut out

Hi, i have a typical 5 year old ony amp, but whenever i turn the volume above a quarter of the way up, it cuts out for about a second at a time (sounds like a cd skipping) untill i turn down a bit. i though it was over heating, but it is well ventilated. any ideas, as it works fine otherwise. thanks

Running four S70 Siroccos off the amp, everytime volume gets halfway the protection is cutting in with protection light flashing three times? When reducing down to two speakers amp cuts out three quarters...

You are overloading your amp. IMO 640A cannot handle heavy loads.

Better change the speaker combo and connect something that puts right load on the 640A. Else, get a meaty amp from CA.

Volume cuts out, volume knob overloads when touched

If this is the old style potentiometer unplug amp and remove cover to get to volume control. spray contact cleaner made for that purpose at the radio shack stores or similar. Spray it into the control and turn the control back and forth to work it in. Let stand for a few minutes and try it again. Always make sure it is dry on all components first.

Yamaha T100C Amp ...volume cuts out after 5 minutes.


Looks like a tube amp.

Get the tubes tested. The tubes themselves should have a dark chrome appearance on the tops and maybe a couple spots on the sides. If there's any gray or milky appearance , then the tube is bad.

Let me know how you fare

My YAMAHA DSP592 is cutting out / turning off if i turn up.

Try disconnecting speaker cables and listen with headphones. If doesn't cut out, output is overloaded. Check for rodent chews on speaker cables.

SU-V460 cuts out at high volumes

Hi samipoyo

You need to check the amp for dry solder joints about the output stages. These amps are notorious for soldering going bad. I would set about re-soldering the entire output stage.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.
