Question about Peavey AMPLIFIER, 1000 WPC, DDT, 8/4/2 OHMS => Model PV2000 Car Audio Amplifier
My amp keeps blowing the fuse during power up. It has done this 6 times since new. I beleive the tech replaces the power transister(s) I installeda a Lemay Mod. then it went for a long time, but, now it started again. I have checked for the proper fuse. This Peavey still looks like new and I want to salvage it. Thank you
proud owner of a session 500 here
had this problem from day one
brought in it for warrantee repairs many times
in the end, the shops could do nothing
they were lost
i tinker in electronics so i tore it down myself
after looking closely, i came to the reasoning that it was a cold solder joint
i took my soldering iron and redid every solder point on the boards
also cleaned the jacks while i was at it
reassembled it and fired it up
never had trouble since
i fixed it where the repair shop gave up trying
if you can solder, go for it and take it easy
