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

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

Speaker distortion when amp is on for a couple of hours


Check out the Bias resistors in the that channel then compare with the right. You might need an Ohm meter to do it, but the resistor(s) could look burned.

Right channel won't play on stereo amplifier


In old stereos the first things I look at are output transistors, solder joints and electrolytic capacitors. If you know how to solder, bad solder joints are pretty obvious. If you need a tutorial on how to spot bad solder joints, look here.

As for bad caps, look here. The info is aimed at computer motherboards but still helpful.

Sonamp 260 cuts out


Normally this denotes a protect condition. Remove the speaker wires from the back of the amp and see if the green light stays on. If this fixes the problem, then there is a short circuit in your wires, speaker level volume control or speakers. The amp sees the short and goes into protect. After a couple seconds it closes the connection again and if the short is still present it goes back into protect.
