Question about Peavey PV® 2600 2-Channel Amplifier

1 Answer

PV 2600, couple years old, light usage. Connected to two PV SP3K speakers. One channel started to cutout somewhat but not all the way, Switched a few input cables, swapped L&R. Then whole amp shutdown. Breaker would not function. Reconnected speakers and inputs to my Crown backup amp. Everything worked fine all night w backup. Got unit home, ran all night last night, without a load or inputs.

    No dust, This thing is cherry, SKB covered when not in use. Input outputs clean. Where would flex cables be? I don't see any on exterior. So don't let the amp run with no load connected?

    Neutrik, and they worked fine when I did emergency swap to my Crown backup.

    Thanks Petraman7

Hi..

I've worked on similar units.
Things I'd check first :
Dust in the unit.
Weak solder connections /crusty debris stuff on the input jacks or output terminals
Any flex cables soldered in tend to be a problem on peavey amps I resolder all those contacts.
Checking the amp w/o a load IS NOT a good suggestion.
What style output connections are you using?
1/4 inch, binding post, or Neutrik style?

    The flex cables are internal to the unit.
    Most of the time resoldering places where connectors meet circuit board clears up problems as well as the power supply areas.

    I would find out from your fave music store who does repairs and have them look at it

My peavey amp pv 2600 only plays on channel A. No output on the B side


Hello,

Check the "BRIDGE" switch position, "IN" for "BRIDGE", "OUT" for "STEREO", and clean ALL back switches with a cleaning spray and then run the amp again, also check the two green lights activation at front, if they activate, then amp is certainly working, let me know further.

Peavey 2600 m series shuts off power when turning up volume after about 30 to 40 seconds of playing and takes about 2 minutes to reset


Sounds like the thermal cutout is sensing over temp. Make sure there is FREE airflow around the unit. If it is in a cabinet, install vent fan(s). This amp will throw out a lot of heat. Make sure cooling fins have airflow. Cables can block the airflow... check for that possibility. Repeated thermal cycles will eventually cause failure of components.

I get a red light on the back panel labeled power. No green light. I don't think the PV 600 is working but when I run the channel check through my Pioneer THX receiver I hear sound. Any thoughts?


The PV600 and PV400 have auto-on circuitry that turns the subwoofer on when a signal is presented, and turns off if no signal is detected for 15 minutes.

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Boston-Acoustics-PV600-Subwoofers-manual/id/522dj484/t/2/

Not knowing which Pioneer receiver you have I have dropped in the steps for No Sound from Subwoofer:

• Check that the subwoofer is connected properly, switched on and the volume turned up.

• If your subwoofer has a sleep function, make sure it is switched off.

• Make sure that the Subwoofer setting is YES or PLUS (see Speaker Setting on page xx).

• The crossover frequency may be set too low; try setting it higher to match the characteristics of your other speakers (see Speaker Setting on page xx)

• If there is very little low frequency information in the source material, change your speaker settings to Front: SMALL / Subwoofer: YES , or Front: LARGE / Subwoofer: PLUS (see Speaker Setting on page xx).

• Check that the LFE channel is not set to -80dB , or a very quiet setting (see Bass Peak Level

on page xx).

• Check the speaker level settings (see Channel Level on page xx).

Regarding the Large vs Small assignment of speakers, what they mean isn't so much the physical size but the ability to handle real bass. Large if Yes.

I have a Peavey PV 2600 amp, when it is switched on only the fan works but nothing else. It is three or four years old and it was given to me by a friend, roughly how much would it cost to repair and get...


Either have it fixed or offer it up as broken at auction.

Estimating cost is near impossible, however labor could easily be aver $100.

The fan is controlled by a rather complex circuit depending on thermistor temp sensors. The temp sensors appear to also shutdown the amp.

If the fan comes on instantly, there MAY be a failure in this circuitry which is inexpensive parts...

Each side of the amp has 10 major power transistors and if all were blown it would add significant parts cost to the repair.

Peavey XR800F 8 channel - I can't get but very little sound to my big speakers. Help


Troubleshooting is always a "process of elimination." Have you tried hooking up your Peavey powered mixer to another set of speakers? How about connecting the speakers to another audio system? Your term "very little sound" could mean audio input problems, mixer/amp settings or failure and possibly speaker damage (internal passive crossovers). Please be more specific.

LIGHTS UP THEN TURNES OFF STRIGHT AWAY


sounds like your internal protection is being activated. either your speakers are connected wrong, or you have the volume up to loud, or there is something wrong in the unit itself and it should be fixed by someone who knows electronics

The DDT light on one channel stays on,but I can't find a reason why? What can I do?


Disconnect the speaker wiring and speaker on the bad channel. Turn the level control(s) all the way counterclockwise and turn the amp on. If your DDT (limiting) light remains lit, it's time for a visit to your nearest certified Peavey service center....G.

Peavey 2600 Low input = Complete Cutout


I'm not quite sure of how the two amps are interacting here, so I'd like to request that you describe the entire hookup. Sending a higher signal from the mixer should not be a problem, but something is wrong in the setup (I think). Please update this with a description of how you have the mixer and amps connected to the speakers. Thanks, Dan
