Hi...
Flush all the switches and controls with De-Oxit D5 or better.
Then get back to me.
Thanks

I would check out whatever drives the left channel first. If it is a transistor, you can put a ohm meter on the terminals and see if it shows a short (amp turned off). If there are two transistors for the left channel, and you find a short on one only, replace the other to be on the safe side.

It's the ribbon cable that is likely at fault. There are actually three computer type ribbon cables in the amp. I believe the cable that is responsible for the drop-out of a channel is the widest (longest) of the three, but you really need a tech to look at it and replace the cable. But please note that the new cable may also have defects in manufacture and that it may take some time to order a new cable from Creek. I had a tech solve the problem permanently by removing all three ribbon cables and then hard-wiring the connections together - that is to say, point-to-point wiring. My cost was about $250, but as you can imagine, there is extensive labor involved. Good luck!

We have an old amplifier from back in the 80's and 90's. Its 500watts, the right channels (both main and sides) work fine and loud, but the left channels produce very low sound. I checked the fuse and its...


Have you checked the final transistors on that weak channel? They may look fine but may be weak. You can pull them and check them on your multimeter with the diode check and cross it with the data sheet for that transistor.

Creek SE 5350 one channel without sound


I think you will find that the fault is either a dry joint somewhere (have you moved it recently?) OR more likely a transistor. It might be caused by one getting very hot! Thus shutting down and coming back on when cool.
The best way to track this troublemaker down is to spary each transistor (in the left channel only don't bother with the other or Power section) with Servisol Freezer spray. Wait for the thing to play up then spray -one at a time- if it pops on you have got the bugger! To make certain apply a soldering to it and it should act up again. Spray again to confirm.

Amp powers up. the right channel works fine left not at all


If you didn't find any burned parts that would mean one of the buffer amplifiers before the power amp could have died. They could either be transistor based or opamp based. They are fairly low power so they will not explode like the output transistors like to do. Contact rockford, they should be able to send you a schematic. Let me know I will try to help you through it.

The numbers of the transistors thay you need to replaced are on the transistor themselfs. Just take out the bad transistors and get the numbers that you need. I ALWAYS replace the output, driver and bias control transistor myself. One thing to keep in mind, if the number on the transistor starts with "A or B or C or D or K" you need to add "2S" in front of that number when you order it. Now that this problem has repeated itself, double check your wire and speaker. They can cause this problem.

Unit peavey xr 886 it appears my left channel output has gone down,could there be a switch iv'e turned off by mistake. (9 I have no manual) or a fuse possibly. or do I need an expensive repair.


your problem is in the power amp. section the right channel transistor there is defected already,thats why only the left is functioning,you better change it, so it works again ,only two transistor maybe 8 dollars each..
if my solution helps you ..rate me as FIXYA..
