This is not a good thing. The DC current will cause the speaker ciols to heat up just like the element in a toaster. This unit requires repair. Either the outputs are shorted or the driver circuit has a problem.

DO NOT hook this up to speakers as the speakers will be damaged.

Why channel A clipping on soundcraftsmen ma5002a what's wrong


When you have a DC voltage on the output, check your capacitors in the amp. Looks like the big electrolytic is defect.
I don't have a manual of this amp, so I can't verify if I'm right and what cap you should look for.

Technics SU-G75, No Speaker Output, Headphones Work. So I woke up this morning to find that my roof leaked ...onto my laptop and stereo. I love this amp, bought it new with all accessories in 1993,...


The fact you have output from the headphones is a good sign. It shows the main amp is working fine. However water has clearly got inside something and affected it. The best course of action is to trace back the wires from the headphone socket and see if there is a relay or anything that could get water in it. If you do find something, try applying warm air from a hairdryer. The alternative is to apply a soldering iron to the solder conections of the device. This should get rid of any water inside. If all else fails you might have to replace the relay. But I would try a spray of Servisol first. Just in case some dust has got inside or mineral salt from the water.

Red light flashes - will not work - could it be dust in the amp?


hi,
its not because of dust. AZUR 640A offers loudspeaker protection if the output of the amplifier goes to a high constant voltage (DC) because of some internal fault. This is a rare fault although detecting it could just save those expensive loudspeakers.
Due to the necessary sensitivity of the DC protection circuit, hard clipping of the amplifier may cause DC protection to be triggered. If this fault occurs switch the unit off, power up again and check
operation with a reduced volume level. If the DC fault occurs again contact your dealer for service.
ok

After 10 years of function a problem appears with the technics se-a900s power amplifier: When the power output reaches or aprox the 10wrms the protection circuit enabled,and the unit goes off! (no...


I would have the power supply capacitors replaced. After several years ( from heat and age) they dry out and dont put out proper DC voltages to run the amp.

Infinity 600 wat amp


Your amplifier is having a serious fault within preventing further damage to the amplifier. If could be a failure of the output mosfets, failure of the predriver, failure of the bias to the output mosfets, short inthe speakers- check this out- fault inthe error amp section for wrong current indiication or malfunctions in the mother board. All of this will need careful location of the fault by checking ont these stages. Porceed only if you are competent or seek help. Good day

My Yamaha YHT-791BL amplifier goes off every time I turn it on. How can I fix it?


hello,
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Its usually not a fault that you will see unless somethings burnt up. This is solid state electronics and you dont see this stuff go bad. But in the meantime try disconnecting the speakers and see if it still goes into shutdown and at the same time have a dc multimeter attached to the speaker outputs. If the unit comes on and you dont see any DC at all or very very little B+ on both speaker terminal sets then you may have a defective speaker. If you do see dc then thats why the protections comming on so you dont blow out your speakers.
Also check for cracked solder connection.
Good Luck

DC Offsets on output - protection don't allowd to switch on


you don't want to do this( bypass the protection0
that d.c. output will burn the coils in your speakers with out making a sound!! you have a biasing problem
or like you said a d.c. offset problem it is best to work on this problem with out a load on the amp, this will allow you to trace back where the trouble is starting at. caps will cause this sort of problem but leaky transistors can also do this, even diodes.
this will require an experienced trouble-shooter.

Amp keeps turning itself down - cant turn off 'protection'


yes,pls.stop plugging the system,you may harm your system if you do so,the system has it's own system analysis mode,and if there's something wrong in the circuitry,it will activate,you need the authorize service center my friend,it's a technical problem.
