  • alberstep Dec 12, 2008


    I have  a C325 BEE and it turn off after 20 min. First time today - had it since Sep 08 without issues until today.

    What is the problem ?

    I have the exact same problem, and haven't found any solution yet. I'm pretty sure that the amp overheated in this case as it was pretty hot when it went out and after restarting it I was only able to reactive it in standby mode but not actually restart. Any suggestions on this appreciated.

I've got an Onkyo M-282 with one channel that just died. Upon visual exam, there seems to be absolutely nothing wrong with it (the caps are all flat, not puffing, no broken components or smells...).

Likely you blew your outputs Transistors or mos fets, you cannot be sure without ohm meter. usually when one side goes out the protection kick in on both chanels

Can you explain a bit more? Generally speaking when this kind of component shows that behavior means that is stuck in protect mode because it has an internal fault, and furthermore in the power amp output section.

I have a crown Itech 4000 and when I plug it in it the green light around the front power button does not light up and when I turn on the power button on the front only the blue "power" light...

Nice amp. There is a breaker/switch on the back that trips to protect the amp. Turn it off, then back on and see if the green indicator comes back. If the breaker trips again, that's probably an indication of a more serious internal problem.

Yamaha surround sound amplifier wont stay turned on comes on for a few seconds then clicks off again

The amplifier MAY be sensing a DC imbalance and turns off to protect the speakers. This would be an electronic defect..

If you can temporarily disconnect the speakers and see if power will remain on... If it will, take amp in for servicing.

Wont do anything

Sounds like the stanby transformer has gone.
This is the transformer that turns the main transformer on and powers up the unit.
Cant be certian though, could be a host of other things.

Crown com-tech 2 channel 400

One channel has failed and is in need of repair. There are some transistors inside that are "noisy" and sending signals down the line. This is a bit tricky to find, but a service shop that does audio repairs should be able to fix this. Figure about $15-$45 for parts depending upon what circuits are effected.

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

Faulty amp

could be in the remote wire at least thats what to hope for. did you wire it off the cd player or off the hot wire. i had a boss doing the same thing but wouldn't stay on b/c i wired the remote off the hot. if that ain't it then and i hate to say this your power supply may not be adequate, you could try using heavier gauge wire. if that didn't do it then your alternative would be get a smaller amp or get a bigger battery with high output altinater
