Meters do not work on Sansui BA-2000

Got it back from the shop, and it sounds fine, but....the meters don't work, and I tried switching from one power setting to the others, thinking it was just a dirty connection, but no luck. The service manual shows how to set them, but I am not a tech.

    Hey, thanks for the response. When I got the amp, I tried to turn it on, and the meters lit up, but there was no movement. The amp was just dead,and I knew it when I bought it. Removing the cover, I found that someone had attempted to work on the amp, and many leads were tagged and numbered. My technician said he did not bother with the meters, as his task was to diagnose and fix the amp, which he did. He told me that maybe they had just been disconnected when the amp was worked on before, and I should look for the multi-pin connector for the meters. They are resting at minimum, just like they looked when I got the unit. thanks, ron

    I have tried repeatedly to download that manual, along with one for my Marantz SR9000G, and I cannot get it. They use some strange format that I have not been able to figure out. Yes, I have tried to download programs to unlock these documents with no luck whatsoever. Gotta be a glitch in there somewhere, and yes, I disarmed all my security and firewalls, thinking that was the problem. NO workie.....

    Did the meters work before it went to the shop?
    and, are they at minimum or stuck in some random spot?

If you have an Acrobat 8 reader and PKware unzip / RAR , you should be able to open all that.

My tv works at my friend house, but doesn't work in my apartment. However all other electrical devices work at my apartment, model is (SLED5000)

Sounds strange indeed. All other devices; except the TV works fine with all power sockets at your house!! Just replace the power pin, at the end of the TV power cord and check. There is nothing more to check for you. It it too do not help you, contact any service technician. Electro help

Connex 3300hp big betty transmits fine on low power setting but when switched to high power hardly any modulation

well fellow truck driver here goes. When you take any radio back to a repair shop they are required by law to set it back to its original settings. I could fix it for you if you ever got to Massachusetts but you need it now so I would tell you this.Take it to a very good cb shop , tell them what went on and that you would like that big radio sound back. thats it.

My Sansui 32 Inch LCD screen shuts off, after a minute. The power remains on - the screen just switches off.

This may not work but i had a similar problem. My 32inch sansui LCD TV would switch off after about 10-20 minutes. I had to unplug it to get it going again. So i decided to open it as the warranty was long gone anyway. Very easy to open the back. I checked to see if anything was "swollen" as some sights suggested, but found nothing burnt , blown or swollen. Then i thought about heat? So i left in on without putting the metal backing plate back. It worked! when i put the plate back.....20 minutes and it shut down. So i just left the metal backing plate off! And no its not dangerous as the sansui has a protective plastic backing, that covers the metal one, that is better ventilated and protects the bits and pieces. Its been a week now and its fine.

The sound goes off after watching tv for some time

It sounds like the power amps is heating up and shut down, try attaching powered PC speakers the AUDIO Line out RCA jacks and see if sound stays on, if it does, you have problem in the power amp sections.

Sansui 8080db power meter.

Hi bhannant

I suspect that there is a switching problem to the meter that is not working. The meter is shared with other fuctions on the amp, and there is quite a signal path/switch array connecting it. I would suggest tweaking rotary switches(particularly dolby related) to see if you can isolate the problem down to a particular one, then give it a clean with CRC2-26

I have the service manual I you want a copy. Just let me know.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, please get back to me here, or use the ASK function to go straight to me :) If you are still unsure, have problems, or we need to look at the situation more deeply, then before you give a rating for this advice, hit the ASK button Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you.
