I baught an amplifier kit from maplin. its a 200w power amplifier. the problem is now when i turn it the two of the resistor gets hot and they are 5W 0.47ohm resistor. can you please help me with this problem.

Have you checked and set the bias current for the output stage. These 2 resistors will get hot if the bias is too high. Is it the firsy time you have fired the amp up? Operating in this condition may cause the output transistors to fail. If the output transistors are damaged,you would also experince heating of these resistors. Get back to me please and let me know if you have set bias

How powerful should amp be to run the speakers?

200 watts is the maximum power handling capacity of the speakers. The amplifier should have a maximum power output of less than 200 watts (per channel) at 8 ohms to avoid over driving the speakers and possibly burning them out.

Whats the problem of my onkyo m-501 it has no power

unplugged with nO power cord connected,,after checking for any internal blown fuses, inspect circuit board for burnt resistors or blown caps, the resistors will appear to be laying on there sides and have multi colored bands around them look for burnt or discolored ones, blown capacitors will look like tiny barrels with lids a flat top indicates a good capacitor as any humped or bulged or rounded top would indicate blown cap , if not more than a couple you may be able to replace these with success, be careful always Unplug from power before servicing electronic componants.

Bn41 00521b broken resistor

Yes you can. 5wr15k is 15 ohms resistor with 10% tolerance and 5W r15j is the same with5% tolerance. Good luck.

200w audio power amplifier

sounds like it's getting really hot, that round thing your talking about is kind of a step up transformer which causes inductance and will increase the voltage that the other components need to run properly. It's copper wires wrapped around a piece of iron like an electromagnet. So what is you question?

It's a straight forward swap, just make sure you line up the cathode leg (the one nearest the stripe) the right way before you solder.
If the are any resistors around the capacitor it's worth changing them too, things don't normally blow on their own.
The caps and resistors are easy enough to get hold of from maplin or RS.

Good luck

My Washburn SX65C is not working

check the grounding resistors, 300-470ohm 5 watt, big ones. they may need to be resoldered to the board, they get hot and break solder we;ds as they cool.

Tr51 gets hot

Do you have a "swing kit" or a "swing diode" installed?
This could also be called an NPC ("Negative Peak Clipping") Modification. There should be a 1/2 watt 100 ohm resistor attached on the unbanded end of the diode. If it is a "Kit", It will not have a 100 ohm resistor and can cause TR51 to overheat during long transmissions.
You may want to remove the diode or kit if you have one in there and, as a better choice, change R238 (near VR13) to a 220K ohm resistor.
That will give you Killer loud audio with a stock mic. You probably won't be able to use a pre-amp (Power) mic after changing R238 to a 220k ohm.Back down the carrier power to 3 watts and watch the modulation get violent!

The standyby supply regulator is chirping, I relaced a blown limiting resistor R9AD2, 1.2ohm 5w and the IC9A20 reg. I cold checkec all diodes and resistors and the check ok. the standby voltages 5 and 12v...

For the most part even generic passives are fine. I wouldn't use generic actives because of reliability.
The power supply chirps and drops off because it is shutting down from an overcurrent condition. Try disconnecting other boards, one at a time, to isolate overload. If it still chirps check your IHVT (flyback) and HOT (horizontal output transistor). If the HOT reads shorted across any two legs, it is bad. The HOT drives the IHVT. The IHVT has multiple taps for various supplies. Sorry, I don't have a schematic to be able to tell you what voltages at what pins.

Occasionally the right channel gets a lot of static

If the noise goes away when you turn down the volume, it means that it starts before the volume control. And if the volume control has no effect then it is the stage after the control.
Transistors, IC's, bias resistors or ceramic capacitors can cause noise.
If you heat up a transistor by touching it with an soldering iron, it might cause the problem to start up. If it does you have found the culprit. You can also try spraying them with Servisol freezer spray which can be got from Maplin UK or Radio Shack USA. This will cool down any part and help detect the faulty ones.
