Open Question

Electrical schematic needed

I have a pyramid PA1000x rack mounted amp and i use it to perform with as a mobile dj. When i turned it on at the club i blew a fuse right away. I took it to an electrician who is a freind of mine and so far(without a schematic to guide him) he found that the full wave bridge rectifier, is bad. Its only a $5.00 part but i need a schematic for future use in case i have problems again. Could anything else be bad?

Pyramid PS-52KX. Getting 24 volts DC on my output. I am knowledgeable in this department. I need to know what ac voltage should I be reading off of my transformer? I can't find a good schematic...

Sounds like the regulator goin. I've read when they go bad it will go full voltage which is 37vdc.
Looks like they use the LM723 regulator. I'm no expert, but may be that simple.
Here's a link to a schematic. Hope it helps

I have a PS14KX. It won't handle any load. If you have any ideas let me know

This is a car amplifier or dj amp? what is the rms power per channel? this amp. is for 12vdc or 120vac

This is a pro audio amp. You could run it in your car if you bought a very large power inverter. However the next question is why? Don't bother with it.

Pyramid - PS21KX 20 Amp Powersupply overload

The problem I have had with a PS-20 is a blown capacitor. Hooked to a radio, would allow radio to receive fine, but when trying to transmit, amperage would bottom out. Behind the transformer is a large circuit board. UNPLUG POWER SUPPLY, remove cover, Undo the two nuts, flip board over, and gently rock the 4700uf capacitors side to side. If they move more than 1/16th of an inch, chances are they are blown. Remove/replace and should be good to go...

PS36K power supply overload problem

Most of Pyramid's supplies are based on the LM723 voltage regulator. The DATASHEET should tell you most of what you'll need to know to repair it. THIS is the schematic diagram.

If the output voltage drives the voltmeter to the end of the scale, it likely has one or more shorted power transistors.
