Re: led screen wont light up.

Does it works besides the lamp? If so then this can be cheaply ordered from bluestar-online, Mcmelectronics, tritronics

My amp blew one filter cap and some transistors and some mosfets.I replaced all 8 filter caps and transistors and the mosfets,but the protection led stays on. Where else do you think I can check? Your

You have what's known as DC Offset(a bad amplifier) you will need to check the drivers and all the fuse type resistors that are open. You need to check the rail voltages, both positive and negative, at the amplifier. You can't "shotgun" parts. You will need to check them. Be sure to reset the amp to factory defaults, but I doubt that it will help in your instance.This will be a tough repair if you're not an Audio Technician. You will need a Variac as well.

My lamps have failed in my sansui a80 amp, the bulbs are as rare as rocking horse sh1t and would like to replace them with leds the 2 bulbs are rated 3watt 8 volts

sure u can. 8v 3 watt means about 400mA current. most leds will light up with only about 20mA, so use a series resistor between 220 ohms and 330 ohms each . less resistance will give u more brightness, too low - the led will burn.

Need voltage level on dial lamps for a Mitsubishi DA-C20 PreAmp.

I don't have one here to verify, so the easiest way to determine this is to actually measure it using a volt meter. These "fuse type" bulbs are readily available from (and others too). Follow either the wires or the traces for these bulbs on the board. Some units have 2 in series. These are either 6,8 or 12V bulbs. If memory serves me correctly, most mitsubishi units use 12V bulbs.

Keep us posted.

Yamaha AX-930 Audio Amplifier


Do a websearch for a competent repair shop in your region or ask the stereo folks where you got the amp.
It WILL need surgery.

LED light dont come on!!! Pioneer audio receiver VSX-9700s

Do you mean that the display that show the audio source or mode doesn't turn on? Try shining a bright flashlight at the display and see if you can read it. If you can, then the backlight light bulbs have died.

Replacing it will be a pain but you may find a usable replacement at Radio Shack. Just measure the voltage that goes to the bulbs and find one with similar ratings. They are probably 12v lamps.You will need to remove the display from the front panel of the amp and desolder the old lamps. Getting at the bulbs is the hardest part.
