Question about Creek Audio Players & Recorders

Creek A42 Amp, Power light turns on but amp does not.

I recently purchased an Creek A42 Amp on Ebay. The seller told me up front that the amp takes several minutes to turn on and that he would just leave in the on position and use his preamp for on/off. This was the case for the two weeks that I received the amp. It did in fact take several minutes to actually turn on, even though the power light comes on immediately. Now the amp does not turn on at all.but the power light still lights up. Any suggestions? Or do you know of any Creek repair shops in the San Francisco Bay Area? I live in the South Bay, San Jose, Ca. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have an older creek 5350se. It has what appears to be bridging pins connecting the pre with the power sections of the amp. Can I connect the creek as a pre amp to a power amplifier.


Hi Lorne,

You can use the amp as a pre by removing the 'jumpers' - or as a power if required.

The 'jumpers' are simply used to connect (or disconnect) the amplifier's pre & power sections.

Hope this helps.

Behringer Vintiger GM110 guitar amplifier Output pcb board


You should be able to get a diagram from the company itself and the circuit board can either be purchased from the manufacturer itself or they can tell you who to call.

Here is the manufacturer's number
BEHRINGER USA beusa_t.jpgBEHRINGER USA Inc.
18912 North Creek Parkway, Suite 200
Bothell, WA 98011
Tel.: +1 425 672 0816


you can also try their online support at
http://www.behringer.com/05_support/webform_support.cfm?lang=ENG
but I would just call them, it would be much easier

Let me know if you need any further help or if they couldn't help you and I will let you know who else might have what you need.

good luck

Creek 5350SE amplifer left Channel dead


It's the ribbon cable that is likely at fault. There are actually three computer type ribbon cables in the amp. I believe the cable that is responsible for the drop-out of a channel is the widest (longest) of the three, but you really need a tech to look at it and replace the cable. But please note that the new cable may also have defects in manufacture and that it may take some time to order a new cable from Creek. I had a tech solve the problem permanently by removing all three ribbon cables and then hard-wiring the connections together - that is to say, point-to-point wiring. My cost was about $250, but as you can imagine, there is extensive labor involved. Good luck!

Europower Beringer PMH3000 power turns on then turn off?


when you turn on the AMP and the red light comes on give the amp 2 seconds and turn it back on the red light should turn off. That is what I do with the amps at my church and it works for me, I hope that this works for you too.

Amp c352 TI 1515456 failure


It sounds like yo shorted the speaker wires together for a short time and smoked the output section of the amp. The amber light is an indication that the amp is in protect mode. If you attempt to power up the amp and still have the amber light even with all speaker wires disconnected, the amp needs repair. The output transistors for that side will need to be replaced.

Creek 4040 Amplifier blown some speakers ?


I would suggest not using the amp before the problem is sorted. It may damage your new speakers :)
  1. It is possible that your input selector switches may be Noisy. What happens when you operate them, does it exasperate the problem?
  2. Noisy control pots may also be contributing to the problem. taking the lid off and giving the pots and switches with decent squirt of contact cleaner lube (I use CRC2-26)
If you still have issues, is the problem there on both channels?
If it is then there may be a power regulator issue.Is there a DC offset on the left and right speaker output(check with a DVM).

You can find a schematic here.

I am happy to talk to you more about the problem. I would need to talk a bit further with you, just ask away in here.

Cordless phone, no power


Are you saying its taking a long time for the sound to come out of the speakers?? or that theres no sound at all?? If its taking a long time check the resistance of each speaker to see that a componet in the crossover or the speaker didnt short.If you take all the speakers and if theres supost to be a relay for protection and you hear it click then the amp is good or has an out put stage problem like bad poutput devices or blown driver transistors. Need alittle more info if you could Thanks.
