Question about Car Audio & Video
Its possible to repair, but you have to crack the amp open and prod around a bit. I found that the failure is usually in the power components or the MOSFET drivers. If you have 1 channel out, I would focus on the MOSFETS (if you dont know what they look like just Google MOSFET - they are the black 3-legged chips and are usually mounted to aluminum to disperse the heat). Some things to look for:
- burnt / melted solder traces (where the MOSFETS connect to the main board)
- disconnected leads (same place as above).
If you find any connection that looks suspicious, it wont hurt to re-melt the solder around the joint to make sure its a good connection.
Hope that helps...
