    i clicked the timer / power standby by accident on the ampliflier and in the past the only way to reset it was to use the remote. i have lost the remote and can not buy a replacement. tried unpluging, but does nothing. looked for fuse to pull, but found none on back. help!

For those who accidently put thier CA-9025 in standby mode by hitting the timer button and no longer have the remote, I figured out how to turn them back on.

Turn on the power button and press and hold the Tuner button for at least 10 seconds. it should come back on :) Hope that helps.

For the Fisher CA-9025 amplifier stuck in power stand by try this, turn on the power, hold down the source direct button, should come on, mine did. The stand by light still shows in stand by mode but when I turn the system on and off it works normal. Stmbled up on this one, hope this helps!!

I suggest you get a schematic, find the main power transformer -- not the big one -- and see what the output voltage of it is. Could be there was a line surge and it cooked a zener diode that regulates power supply voltage. I can help you find a schematic.

Preston1968, you're a fuckin genius.
My amp has been dead for years.   I love this amp.  It's been a power house for me.
Thanks.  Glad I looked this up B4 trashing it (just about to).  Thanks again.

I have a Fisher Stereo Amp Model CA-9025 thats not producing any sound. I have the cabinet off the unit, the unit will turn on, but won't produce any sound. Any other fuses to check or other ideas?


These units use STK amp pac ICs (large black part attached to the rear heatsink). In many cases, this IC is defective. It is possible that there is a problem with the voltage regulator circuit, but that is less likely. This IC needs to be replaced. Expect to pay in the $50 range (or more) for the part.

CA-9025 amplifier the out speakers relay doesn'tsw.


It is possible that the error protection is ON and so does not switch on the amplifier to the speaker. Only if the error amplifier which is a current sensing circuit gets a good feedback on normal current drain will the processor be informed for the speaker relay to be switch.
So remove speakers and check, if not the output is faulty. check for short or drain in at least one channel.

Fisher CA-885 Integrated Stereo Amplifier stuck in stand-by mode


Given the heat/cold cycles of the storage area along with humidity, I would first suspect poor solder connections. This is not unusual for units of this age. A general overhaul should restore this to operation. This should be a labor only repair unless the output STK is bad. These units are known for having poor connections at the voltage regulators which cause a DC voltage offset triggering the protection circuit. The overhaul should address this as well.

Keep us posted on your progress.

Need to locate the microprocessor on the fisher ca-9025 stereo amplifier. Need to know where it is and what it looks like. This is so I can repair the problem of the stero not going off stand-by....


Yep, that is a likely problem, but it could be a blown diode in a relay switch, or etc. etc. If you're lucky, someone will possibly have a repair manual, and schematic. That way, you could reset it, but maybe ohm out a few components further up the on/stand-by circuit while you're in there. Sometimes you get lucky and it's easy, but it can be tricky. I would take digital pics or videos as I went, using macro when necessary. Makes things much easier for me, anyway. You can possibly purchase a schematic, but I couldn't find one online, so if you can get a current tech line, you could probably go that route, but I'm thinkin' big bucks. Here is a blog about your problem, and although there isn't a schematic that I saw, it does identify the components in "stand-by" circuit, as well as the microprocessor.

Gutsy job, but that's the only way to keep them alive, from what I've seen! Good luck!

When i got the fisher home stereo ca-9025 very little sound


Lets try the simple stuff first. Check to be sure that the tape monitor switch is not engaged. Since youare getting some sound, it appears that the signal path is being interrupted. It is possible that the output transistors have failed (open), but that is extremely rare. Check the tape monitor switch and update this with your results.

Thanks,
Dan

Fisher ca 9025 amplifier


The amp is in protect mode. Something in the final stage is defective. This is usually caused by shorted output transistors. This unit is worth getting repaired. Expect a parts cost in the $25-$50 range.

Speakers have died?


Probaby the stereo decoder IC went bad or a supply voltage to it is too low or noisy. If it has audio output jacks on the back of the TV, connect it to an external amplifier and see what that sounds like. If it is ok in stereo or mono mode then the amplifier in the TV is bad. This will prove that the stereo decoder is ok.
