Question about Visonik V800XD Car Audio Amplifier

Open Question

Amp started smoking from Mosfet irfp064n transister when turned on, no power!

I just got this used Visonik V800XD and when I applied power the power light came on and then I saw smoke and of course power light went out. I opened the amp up and saw that someone had replaced one of the Mosfet irfp064n transisters ad it looks like it was burn. I applied power again with a different 12 power supply with a reset and I saw a slight flash of the power light and the reset tripped and I saw a little smoke from the transister. What could be the problem, should I get another transister and solder it in? Is it worth getting fixed or ask for my money back? Any help appreciated as I would love to get this amp up and running. Thanks T

HAVE NO PICTURE....HEARD TWO LOUD POPS, SAW SMOKE & SMALL FIRE


Smoke is never a good sign, is this the model indicated above?

If handy you may want to open set and see where the damage is---may just narrow things down.

OF COURSE IF IT SMOKED DO NOT PLUG IT TO POWER OR TRY TO TURN IT ON AGAIN---nothing to be gained by doing that.

Can i use a light switch to power my table saw


It will probably work fine. I have done this for a small table saw with nothing special about the light switch. But if you have a 1 hp or larger motor use a high current rated switch, perhaps you can find a 20Amp switch. The make and break arc of a motor is different from lights due to the inductance, so it might fail prematurely, and of course you give up the safety of having the keyed switch.

Pedal almost goes to floor, see steam or smoke from front wheels


Definitely sounds like you have a brake fluid leak. It shouldn't be driven anymore until the problem is repaired. The red brake light comes on when the fluid is low. If your in a rusty climate one of the brake lines has probably rusted out. When it dries up try following the lines from the master to each wheel. However since you said you saw smoke when braking i'd bet the leak is near a wheel and fluid hit the rotor or caliper which caused the smoke. In either case, sounds like something has to be replaced / repaired. Good luck.

Thumping speakers - no power light is on - wired correctly


the amp is going into protect mode due to something wrong in the amp or some thing in the wiring to it ooh yea if you are getting 18v power to the amp that is way to high it should not be higher then 15v if the amp is in protect mode it will not play at all.

Amp Power light will not go on. Protection light is lit- Thump sound in speakers


It probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible causes, read through the following page.

Smoke coming from visonik v4218


Generally, smoke means the power supply FETs have failed. There may be other problems that could have caused it to fail. It will need to be repaired.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Amp problems


The head unit probably has 2 control wires. One has 12v when the signal source is the tuner. When you switch to the other sources, the antenna is not needed so the output to that wire is switched off (so the power antenna will go down).

Look for a wire marked amp control or something similar. It will have 12v output any time the head unit is on. Use that one to control your amplifiers.
