Amp Failure:
There are many different ways that an amp can fail but the two most common failures are shorted output transistors and blown power supply transistors (< those are not blown). There are several types of protection circuits in amplifiers. The most common are over-current and thermal. The over-current protection is supposed to protect the output transistors. Sometimes it doesn't work well enough to prevent the failure of the output transistors but it will work well enough to shut the supply down before the power supply FETs are destroyed. If the amp remains in protect mode, goes into protect mode or blows the fuse as soon as the remote voltage is applied, shorted output transistors are almost certainly the cause. If the fuse protecting the amp is too large, if the protection circuit doesn't respond quickly enough or if the power supply is poorly designed, the power supply transistors may fail. If you see a lot of black soot on the power supply transistors (near the power transformer), the power supply transistors have failed. Soot on the board doesn't necessarily mean the transistors have failed. Sometimes, technicians don't clean up the mess from a previous failure. Transistor Failure/Checking Transistors:
In general, when a transistor fails, it will either short (common for output AND power supply transistors) or open (common for power supply transistors). Transistors act like valves. They control the current flowing through a circuit. A shorted transistor acts like a valve that's stuck open (passing too much current). In the case of an output transistor, the shorted transistors tries to deliver the full rail voltage to the speaker output terminal. If you've ever seen a damaged amp that pushed or pulled the speaker cone to its limits when the amp powered up (common on some Rockford amplifiers), that was almost certainly due to a shorted output transistor. When checking transistors, you most commonly look for shorted connections inside the transistor. You do this by using a multimeter to look for low resistance connections between the transistor's terminals.

can you power up the radio? one way to check whether the power amplifier still alive or not, get a multi meter to measure the speaker terminal. should not get any dc voltage between the 2 terminal for each speaker. if found any dc voltage meaning the power amp is dead.

Power from ignition is setup to turn power On,

Check if +12V is available on "REM" terminal.

Check the speaker wirings , if speaker is connected to the

Need connection details for Blaupunkt Bamberg SQR 05


It should follow the usual practice:
White and white with black stripe- Left front.
Gray and gray with white stripe Right front.
Blue goes to the power antenna lead
Yellow is the data store and should connect to a point that is always hot from the Battery "+" and not interupted by the ignition switch It should have a 3 amp fuse.
Red is the main power and should be wired to a point that foes get interupted by ignition switch- such as existing radio It should be protected by 8 amp fuse.
Black is ground (-)
Orange is dimable illumination- wire to a dash light
The black wire with an 1/8 jack end is for portable devices to plug into.
Green and green with black stripe Left rear speaker
Violet and violet with black stripe is right rear speaker.

Alternately you can opt for the red and white RCA terminated leads to plug into another amp's input for rear speakers,

My 2003 ford focus radio is a blackpun it turns on but no sound come thru the speakers can someone help me


A Blaupunkt? Verify that the speakers are connected to the radio. This is simple if they are directly connected, but if they are connected through a power amplifier, then things get a little more complicated. If there is a power amp, then you might want to try connecting a speaker to the radio directly first, to help determine whether the problem is with radio, amp, wiring, or speakers.

The wiring could be wrong, it sounds like you have taken the live feed from ignition, the main feed should be direct from the battery with an inline fuse as close to the + terminal as you can, the earth lead should be as short as you can from the amp to the chassis, and the remote lead comes from the head unit.
