Fuses checked? Make sure you use a voltometer and not just eyeballing it. FYI.

Fuse power amp is good I have power on power supply but the amp does not turn on what meaning is this?


Probably a bad transformer? Do you have power on the secondary side? Power in is one thing power out is another, hope this helps?

Model Yamaha ME-50 no power


John
With AC power off.
Use a meter (on Ohms scale) to check internal fuse for blown (open) fuse.
If you feel qualified & safe with AC Power On.
Check input to internal power supply on AC Scale (Caution when AC is on) for volts in.
Use meter on internal Power Supply for "probably" DC volts leaving internal Power Supply electronics to power the rest of the electronic circuits.
Switch mode power supplies can break down. They stop doing their high frequency switching so they don't convert AC to DC.
If this P/Sup is a separate box or circuit board, inside the unit, then it can have a part number & be replaced.
Good Luck

I get a loud crack sound when I switch on the drum machine when I have it connected to the mixer


That would be normal - the order you power up equipment is very important. Always start with peripherals and work toward the power amp. Powering off is reverse - power amp first. You can also mute the mixer channel you're plugged into before powering up the drum machine but get into the habit of proper power sequence.

I have a Focusrite Pro 10 i/o Firewire Interface and am experiencing 60 Hz hum through the mic pres when phantom power is switched on with the power supply attached. Phantom power running from 6-pin...


I assume you are using condenser mics as you would NOT be using phantom power with any other type connected or other devices plugged in while you have phantom power. It is important to have ALL interconnected equipment, including the computer, powered from the SAME receptacle or power source. Make sure the power supply you are using is SPECIFICALLY for the unit from Focusrite as some supplies have filtering within the wall transformer module and others do not. The power supply MAY be generating magnetic fields... try moving it around and see if hum is affected. The capcitive coupling in a power supply can let in higher frequency components from lamp dimmers. Make sure you have no lamp dimmers anywhere near the equipment.

My Roland kc 550 will not power on.


Hello,

if it does not power up, then it means its having a power problem. it might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby not making it to power on.

This unit must have a power supply board in it where power enters from the mains. A capacitor, fuse, diode, etc may have been defective on the power board and maybe that's why its not making the unit turn on. There might also be some disconnection or something, inside the unit which is not making it to power on.

To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter in order to test the components on the power board, once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store withing our vicinity. This is the only way by which you can detect the problem.

Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.

Take care........

Bought a powered monitor as it said to do even though I thought it was weird as you usually use a passive monitor with a power amp. Purchased Kustom 10" powered monitor, hooked it up to monitor...


You didn't mention what brand powered mixer you have, HOWEVER MOST powered mixers also have a line level monitor and main output jacks. These are almost always 1/4 inch jacks. In any case you should be using BALANCED lines to the powered speakers using either XLR or TRS connectors on the ends. Please tell us what powered mixer you have so we can give you better answer regarding which connections to use. IF for some reason your mixer does NOT have line level outputs, you can use a high level Direct Box to condition the powered outputs to be sent to the powered speakers..
Also make sure ALL your interconnected equipment is powered by the same receptacle or source to avoid damaging due to ground bounce on utility lines and circuits. This often means running an extension cord from the stage where the powered speakers are along with a snake of the audio cables.

You haven't mentioned what model and manufacturer the mixer is. I will have to guess and say that the monitor out on the board isn't providing signal to the powered monitor or the monitor out on your board is powered and is now damaged by plugging a powered monitor into it. Carefully reread your manual and determine if the monitor out on your mixer is powered or line level. Reread also and make sure that the signal you are monitoring is assigned to monitor out, levelled correctly etc. If you find that the monitor out is passive (line level) try hooking it up to an external power amp and speaker. A guitar amp will do for testing purposes. Start with a low input volume on the amp. Also make sure that if it is passive to use a shielded cable from monitor out to input. If your board has powered monitor outs you can use a speaker cable from monitor out to speaker input (non powered monitor speaker).

Power supply for vocalist 2 goes bad twice


Likely the supply was underated OR it is getting hit with a transient. Transients are common in some venue power systems.

There should be a label on the unit as to what the power requirements are. Make sure the power adapter is rated for that or more CURRENT in amps or milli-amps.

Are you sure the power supply has failed? There could be an intermittent in the unit, most likely with the inout power jack... They often get damaged by tripping over the power cord.

Marshall MG50 DFX makes a squealing noise on power up


Yep, chalk that one up to poor design...The amplifiers are going out of balance during power up and down. Two seconds is pretty long... Try turning down the gain during power on and see if that affects it.

The pop on turning off is normal... None of these have speaker disconnecting hardware that is necessary for very high power amps. The biggies have hardware that checks amplifier is balanced before connecting the speakers and a relay also cuts the speakers immediatley on power down. As power goes up and down the circuitry comes to equilibrium and until it does, strange things happen.

I would investigate the CONDITION of the filter caps for the main power because if they age to a higher internal resistance that COULD cause the high freq oscillation on power up... Two seconds is MUCH too long.

There should also be some non-electrolytic caps NEAR the power output transistors to handle high frequency supply power bypassing.

Check the power bypasses that service the preamp stages. Look for pregnant electrolytic caps that have failed.

Ultimately, you MAY need an oscilloscope to isolate the high freq problem.

I have a lowrey organ and when i plug it in it does nothing . no power at all anybody got any ideas


If you feel comfortable doing it you could try removing the back and examining the power supply. Make sure the power cord is not plugged in. Remove the screws holding the back on the organ. Look to see where the power supply is. It will be a fair sized metal box that the power cord comes out of. Look for a fuse holder on the box.If there isn't one or you already checked the fuse look to see how the power supply is fastened down. If you can remove it you can check the power cord from the plug end to the connection in the power supply with a volt ohm meter on the lower resistance scale. Check both sides of the power cord . Look for an internal fuse soldered into the circuit if there is one. Check it also. You can also check the power switch the same way. Think of the power cord and switch etc as a garden hose. You want to make sure that the flow of electricity is not interrupted any where between the plug and the power transformer. Do all these tests with the cord unplugged. Also avoid touching anything connected to the filter capacitors as they store dangerous amounts of electricity. If none of this helps note the plug that connects the power supply to the organ. Unplug it and take the power supply in to be tested. A good piano service place should be able to direct you to someone. Also remember that something had to make the power supply fail if it is indeed faulty. None of this is simple or recommended for a person who has no experience with electricity or electronic repair. If you feel at all hesitant about doing it you are better advised to consult a repair person. If you do have experience but no schematic you can still usually find the problem with careful thought and procedure. Break the circuit down into modules and test them one at a time starting with the power supply. It could be something as simple as a frayed cord or blown fuse to something as complex as a burned out transistor or faulty tube ( in the case of older organs) causing the power supply to fail. I once repaired a home organ that the power supply blew in again because of the customers house wiring. That particular wall plug in had been wired improperly. Hope all this helps.
