Hi,

Have you checked to see if the thermal fuse has failed on the transoformer. This can be repaired. Get back to me here if you want to know more about it.

I have SONY TA-V715 amplifier with out transformer, please give me transformer details


If the unit is more than a couple of years old, that part is probably no longer available. As to the specs, you have have to obtain a service manual.

Hi, using my amp for a long period on new years eve and the amp suddenly died. I've changed the plug fuse and checked internal glass fuse, both ok.Cant see anything obvious I.e. burning or over heating...


There's only one way to check the transformer and that's with a voltmeter. If there is mains going in but nothing coming out of the secondary, then that fuse has gone. They are not designed to be replaced and Transformers are what the trade call 'Safety Parts'. So they have to be replaced with the same thing. I would contact Teac and find out if they still do make them or where you can get one from.

Where I can get mains transformer KLT5P035YE for Teac A-H300? Thanks


I know this thread is a couple of years old, but this may help someone with the same problem.
There doesn't seem to be a supply of A-H300 transformers for direct replacement, but you can utilise the transformer from the MKII version of the amplifier with a little modification.
The output voltages from the MKII transformer are exactly the same, but two of the connectors have changed, so you will need to salvage these connectors from the original transformer to modify the MKII version.
The physical size is also a little different, but it will fit. I found that I had to remove the excess 'tags' that remain on the lower circuit board to give enough space for the transformer to align with two of the original mounting holes & I drilled one extra hole in the replacement tranformer baseplate so that a third screw could be used.
Hope this helps someone!

TRANSFORMER BLOWN


Hi
Most  transformers have a thermal fuse fitted, this can be bypassed/replaced  to get the amp working again. Are you up to having a go at fixing it?

Blown power transformer


Hi
What has happened to the transformer. Does it have an open circuit primary?  Get back to me if you want a fix.

Bose SA-3 Amp / Blown Fuse


The problem is not the transformer. You now have shorted output transistors at the very least. By corssing the wires you presented a zero(0) ohm impedence load to the output section. It quickly went into overload. Before the fuses had a chance to open up, the outputs fried. This unit will require new output transistors and perhaps the previous driver circuit will require parts as well. Figure on $20-$50 in parts plus hte local labor rate for the repair.

Distorted sound


This is an automatic high end amp. Make sure you are using 8 ohm speakers. If the connections are correct, also use good quality speaker wire.

If this makes no difference, it seems that it would need to go to the repair shop.
