Power Off after two seconds

There are, at the very least, a few different types of protection, DC Offset, Thermal Overload, or simply a voltage from a sensor transistor to the microprocessor IC,(display microprocessor) that communicates with the main microprocessor IC, one of the computers in your unit) to open the AC relay. If require more assistance, or would like to inquire about repairing your unit, please visit my website at Thank you.

Alesis RA150 overheat.

You first need to check whether the relay you have used as a replacement has the same voltage on the coil as the original. You have wisely chosen one with a higher current rating on the switch contacts, which is a very good idea, but I suspect you've not looked at the coil voltage to ensure it's the same. For example, you may have installed a with a relay with a 12 volt coil, while the original had a 24 volt coil. Result? the new relay coil will overheat, as will the driver transistor.
A simple test is to operate the amp until it feels hot, TURN IT OFF, quickly remove the top cover and see if the new relay feels hot. If it does, you need to source a replacement relay with the correct coil voltage. Usually the coil voltage is written on the body of the relay somewhere, so you should be able to identify it on the original unit airly easily

Crackling noise all channel when i change 110v to 220v

Sound as if you have a low voltage, check for 220 v if its ok, then you have a current problem, the higher the voltage, it will be less current flow. Hope its not a flaw on the 220 v side

Cambridge audio Azur 540a repair

Open your amplifier then find the power relay inside push the power button and observed the relay if active. If so the measure the voltage on large capacitors. But if the relay is not active check the relay drive transistor and the blocking diode across the coil.

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.

My father in-law just gave me a stereo system he wasnt using. It came with a technic suv98 amp. I hooked up everything but there is no sound coming out. The output indicators are not even showing...

Checked your amplifier connection, it supposed to be like this, amplifier has 2 audio connectors RED is Right White is Left channel, connectors cable should be connect to audio output of the receiver/DVD/CD etc.. and the other end of the cable connect to the input of the amplifier. hope this help thanks

McIntosh MC7106 Amplifier not powering up

It can be a variety of reasons but I feel that your amplifier is shutting off after powering on. There is nothing that can be done from the outside but If you are familiar with basic electronics and can attempt to take a look I can try. Open the set after you have pulled off the power, then look into the set and tighten all the connectors and cords. Power on and see where the click comes and goes off. If the relay is not holding on then your protect circuit is shutting it off. Armed with a multimeter turn on the power and check if the main +B power is coming to the output stages.If there is momentary swithch on , then disconnect power and test the continuity in the output stages. If hsort open the leads to the output section and then power on. If the relay stays we have found the fault. you can go on to change the failed outputs. If however the outputs were tested ok, then your fault could be the relay or the protect circuit, Hold a rely for a moment to see if the amplifier powers on, if so check the relay drive transistor , the biasing to the stage. Try this out and I hope my advice helps. Good day

I have a technics su-v660 integrated amplifier.the voltage selector light comes on but the current drive light is intermittent .when the red drive light is on it works perfectly but only for 5 minutes then...

Unplug the power, open the case and try to locate some electrolytic capasitors is series with the audio at the channel with the problem. One of them must be blown.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

Check for dry solder joints especially on the main power output transistor.
A blown power transistor will stop the 'Current Drive' from engaging so if the problem you have is intermittent then it is most likely dry solder joints.

Hope this helps.

No signal through main amp

If the speaker relay does not activate, then the amp is in protect mode. There is a problem in that has been detected in the final stage of the amp. You indicate that you have 4V at the power transistors. That is likely the B+ voltage. What is the reading at the other 2 pins? Please post that and I should be able to give you some ideas.
