Since you don't list the make and model, I'm going to take a guess here. If you are measuring the pads of the output transistors, then the transistors are shorted and need to be replaced. Please post the make and model as well as what you measured so I can confirm the diagnosis and possibly provide any additional parts that should be checked.

Thanks,
Dan

Please check all the fuses if they are all fine..if they are good then thier must be something wrong in the power IC.

Pioneer model SA 9500 stereo amplifier problems.


Is the dc voltage reading on the base of the outputs 0.6 with emitters reading 0.014 or there about. Depending on the outputs used you might read 1.2volts on the base. Your collectors will read the power supply voltage of 50 or 60volts or more. If this is what you are reading on your meter the problem is in the speaker protection circuit. This circuit is what drives the relay you tested.

What could cause intermittent no power to amplifier relay (RLY551) in Technics SU-V96?


Check the relay control transistors. Check the voltage at the collector and base of this transistor. Download the service manual to your device to get more details.

Yamaha no power


you need to check the power supply input of your amplifier using a multimeter set your tester into a dc voltage reading.then measure the power input you must have a DC voltage supply reading..open the cover check the fuse an open fuse will turn the unit to no power.there are causes of blown fuse a shorted power transistor at the circuit will blown the fuse you need to replace faulty transistors before putting up a new fuse...check also the diode at the power supply section ,faulty diode could lead to the same problem..

I have a Blues Jr III amp, I changed resistor R52 from a 22k to a 27k to increase the bias voltage and make the tubes run cooler. I am not getting a negative DC voltage reading on the top leads of R31/R32...


What happens when you replace the original resistor? The change might eradicate the balance within the circuitry. It might be appropriate to connect a wire wound variable rersistor of say 10K in series with the original resistor to see what changes occur with small changes. Measure other known voltage points around that part of the circuit and note the changes as you increase the resistance. It would be helpful if you could send a diagram of this particular unit.

Crown amp had 2 shorted output transistors.and 1 blown cap.i replaced all.still will not turn on. circuit breaker is fine.what usually goes wrong with these amps? where do i check now?


There is a "driver" stage that sets up the voltages for the output stage as well as a bias circuit. Any of these can have a problem. I would suggest that you take voltage readings at each of the output transistor pins and post the readings here. I might be able to give you a few things to check. Crown designs are not the simplest to diagnose, but we should be able to track it down a bit. Measure each of the pins to gound and post the values here.

Thanks,
Dan

My Garnet Pro 200 tube guitar amp has low volume


You must first isolate the stage that is causing your problem. Start at the master volume control by injecting a signal using a screwdriver. If you get a good level of hum from the speaker then output and phase splitter stages are ok. Work your way back to the front end by touching the screwdriver to inject hum into the input grid of each valve in turn to isolate weak stage. Check anode and cathode voltages on valve of suspect stage. Check cathode bypass capacitor and anode/grid coupling capacitor for open circuit. If fault in output stage check screen grid resistors for open circuit. WARNING high voltages exist in valve amps, keep one hand in your pocket and do not hold on to the chassis while testing.

Amp powers up but just hums


The output transistors are probably shorted. There should not be any DC voltage going to the speakers. DO NOT run it this way for long or you will damage the voice coils of the speakers. This unit needs service. Expect a parts cost in the $25-$40 range.

Looking for circuit schematic for a Teac AG-7D. There's no visible burning on the board, no blown fuses, the power light comes on, it just won't make a noise any more.


This unit has detected a problem in the output section and the protection circuit is preventing the output relay from turning on. In most cases this is due to shorted output transistors which will need to be replaced. If you have a multimeter, set it to read DC volts and measure the voltage on the three legs of one of the output transistors. You should read .6V, 40V or so and 0.0. I suspect that you will read 40V on two fo the three legs. If so, that is your problem. Please note that the actual reading for the higher voltage may be something other than 40. I don't have the service manual for this model, so I don't know the exact voltage. It will be anywhere from 35V-75V depending upon the actual design and output transistors.

I am not aware of the availability of schematics for this unit, but any shop that works on audio gear should be able to repair this without them.

Won't stay on even in standby


The voltages are wrong. You should see (0.0, +/-0.6, and B+/B-) on the 3 pins. The driver section has a problem. Check the driver stage for shorted transistors or open resistors.
