Can this rca jack be purchased and resolderd

All except what "this" actually means.

RCA jacks are very available, and if you're at all good at soldering, you should be able to do one.

Yes you can. Allied electronics is where you could get the replacement or a Radio Shack if you have one by you.

I have power to my alpine mrp-m500 amp, and everything is connected, but the rca ports on the amp are broken. they arent getting any power. would this be an easy fix for me to do myself?

The RCA connectors are usually associated with the audio, not power. I would expect that if you open the amp you'll find that the RCA connectors are soldered directly to the printed circuit board (PCB). They may be right-angle type connectors and stand off the board.

You may be able to replace the connectors, but it will probably require some modifications. You should be able to find some at a Radio Shack store. If you can secure them to the chassis (cover) you can run heavy wires such as 16 or 14 gage directly from the connectors to the PCB.

If you are not intimidated by electronic soldering, then it should be possible without too much trouble. If you can find chassis-mount RCA connectors, you can drill small holes in the cover for screws to hold them to the chassis, if there is sufficient room available.

Be sure to avoid touching the PCB if possible, so you don't damage it by static discharge. If you must touch it, ground yourself first.

Good luck!

Amp comes on but music plays for 30 seconds then crazy feed back of rca jacks feels loose are they replaceable

Yes they are can be replaced. If you meant the RCA female sockets on the amp then it needs that the amp is taken out and the RCA terminals soldered -- it can be poor joints. If not you can de-solder and change with a new one.
If this is the RCA main socket then the wire can be **** off and a new RCA jack of good quality can be soldered, taking care to keep the shield and main line with a good solder point.

RCA HD52W66 Has an intermittent short that keeps blowing a fuse: FL231 on the diffusion board. What are likely possibilities?

I have found the main cause of this is poor solder connections on the high voltage flyback transformer. Just reheat these connection and add a little solder to get rid of the rings on the solder

RCA inputs loose,, one side not working. When both

If you are a bit handy with a soldering iron you may be able to buy some replacements from somewhere like RS components or something and solder in some new ones, but be careful not to damage anything that is in close proximity to the back of the terminals inside the unit. hope this helps ;)

I have a zx250 phoenix gold car amp and my overload light came on when I accidentally crossed the ground and power wires while disconnecting it. Not working properly since then and I can guess why but want...

hi, if you are good with a soldering iron, you can purchase the capacitors and resistors that you will need on line. after you purchase them, open the amp and remove the blown components by using a point cutter and solder the new components in the same place. if you don't feel comfortable with disassembling and replacing the blown resistors and capacitors, i would take it in for a professional repair.

please rate and god bless..

Rca jack is broke and i was needing a nother one

You may be able to get one from radio shack or a similar electronic hobby store. However you will have to open the amplifier up and solder the new jack in.

If i am not mistaken this amplifier also has a Hi-level input and you can just use that if you have the harness for that connection, you can put rca ends on it and connect it that way.

When i hook up my amp. i have all my wires hooked up right,

this is a signal crash either your speaker wires are crossed (wrong wiring phase) or your RCA jacks need replacing also it could be inside your amp the solder lines may have fused. If after checking and replacing wiring problem persists return to MTX for repair.
