Re: Amp stopped working

Check your cables,line source inputs, speakers button switches( A&B),maybe it's OFF,if it's ON, then you have a power amp. problem,see a doctor,you know what i mean.

It sounds like you have an output amp failure and it looks like you paid good money for it.

If it's under warranty, find a service place. If not let me know your location and I can suggest someone to fix it

I have a technics su-v660 integrated amplifier.the voltage selector light comes on but the current drive light is intermittent .when the red drive light is on it works PERFECTLY but only for 5 minutes then...

Check for dry solder joints especially on the main power output transistor.
A blown power transistor will stop the 'Current Drive' from engaging so if the problem you have is intermittent then it is most likely dry solder joints.

Hope this helps.

No sound at all. Power is on and all lights light up, but so sound output regardless of speaker selected or input.

I do not have experience with this particular amp. Generic trouble shooting follows:

Might it be that you have headphones plugged in? (Unplug them, they turn off the speaker output) You are absolutely certain of the settings on your amp? (check them again) Are you certain you have an input? (AM, FM, CD, AUX, other) (Make sure the input is turned ON and the source is properly selected.

Is the output protected by a fuse or fuses? (look on the back panel for fuses or fuse holder)

Everything that is suppose to be plugged in IS plugged in ... all cables are intact? Did you check them for contunity? You can check contunity with a flashlight battery, the light of a flashlight and a paper clip.

Speaker selection switches are pressed as appropriate. Speakers are connected to the appropriate outputs and they are ON. Speakers are of proper rating - and resistance? 4 ohm - 8 ohm - 16 ohm??? Any controls on the speaker are set at a neutral setting?

I'm sorry your device is not functioning as you think it should. These things are designed to work and generally, they are pretty good at it. Sometimes, they just break (stop functioning) It may be that you will have to take it back from where you got it for repair or adjustment. But I am hoping you have the headphones plugged in.

Thanks for your interest in

Sony preamp has no speaker output but headphone jack work fine

If this thing is a pre-amp , it will not drive any speakers.
You'll need a power amp to connect the output of the pre-amp to...then speakers.

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.

Technics SUV4X new class A Amp - 20 odd years old but lovely sound !!

Hi guys

Quick check... If the amp still stays in safety mode with the vol turned down and the speakers disconnected, it will have failed in some way. Since you have the safety operation light ON, you can expect that the power transformer is OK. I would expect that you have a DC offset condition on one channel. The most common problems you may have are
  1. dry solder joints about the power stages such as regulators, and output/driver transistors/IC's.
  2. blown output transistors/output IC with possible fusible resistor failures, and or sometimes burnt up printed circuit tracks.
  3. a voltage rail failure from a burnt fusible or power supply component.
If you are up with electronic fault finding, soldering and have the tools, have a go yourself, I could talk you through it. If not, I would suggest you contact you local HiFi specialist and find who can repair it or at least check to see what has failed for you. Good Luck. If you cannot find someone, hit me back and I will try to find someone for you. Cheers

Crate RFX65 solid state guitar amp has power but no sound


Sounds like the amp has developed a problem. If you had it LOUD then you may have popped a speaker or an output stage. You say it still makes the plugging in noise, what happens when you touch the end of the jack lead whilst plugged into the amp. do you get a burst of clean hum?
