Question about NAD C370 2-Channel Amplifier

1 Answer

No power at all on NAD C370

Hi

I've had my NAD C370 for years and just yesterday when I turn on the power button, nothing, its absolutely dead, no lights, no noises, dead to the world.

I've read through some articles in this site and I'm still unsure how to proceed. Is it the internal fuse? or something else?. If it is the fuse what's it specification and where would I get one just to give it a try. I phoned the local shop I bought this from and all they can do is return the unit to NAD who will charge £150 just for looking at it.

I'm no expert in electronics but I'd rarther have a go at something than just hand over money to NAD with no real idea whats wrong.

Thanks for any help.

    HI



    Thanks for replying, I appreacited the advice. I managed to fix the amp. It turned out it was the internal fuse, the confusion came from the supplier had inserted a 4a fuse from manufacture and it turns out I needed a 6.2amp to be replaced. Anyway its all sorted, thanks for replaying so quickly.

Read page nine for some simple troubleshooting tips and see if that helps.

It *could* be a fuse but given you've owned it for a while and NAD amps often have capacitor issues in the power supply, chances are it needs some serious work by a good tech. Contact NAD directly and see what they recommend.

NAD C370 distortion


Check first if you got +68/-68V on amp module left and right on contact CZ302 and CZ402 pin 2 & 7. Often the -68V is missing. This is caused by faulty transistor Q713 in +68/-68V power supply. It's a 2SA872.

Nad c370 keeps switching off


Check the speaker wiring for shorts, a common problem. If everything checks out there may be bad solder joints on the main board especially in the output stage, or there is a fault in one or more driver transistors.

Worked fine yesterday - will not turn on today - kitchen


When you say the machine is dead do you mean you are getting no LED lights at all or do you mean it is not booting up? No power and no post are two different things. With no power you get absolutely nothing at all. With no post you may have some LED lights but nothing comes up on the screen. You said power and power supply tested ok. How are you testing it? I need more info please.

Nad c 370 no power


You need to look inside. There will be a fuse inside too. If your lucky it will restore the amp once replaced, but if it blows again you have a fault. You can track it down yourself if your any good, you might even see a burnt out part when looking for that fuse, otherwise get the repairman in.

HELP PLEASE. NAD 370 JUST DIED...


This could be as simple as a bad connection at the voltage regulator IC or blown output transistors. If you have a multimeter and some experience with electronics repair, this should be fairly straightforward.

Let me know and I'll try to walk you throught the repair.
