Get a can of cold spray from an electronics industry supplier.
it cools to -51 f.
you have a bad transistor in the phono stage.if you spray it with freeze,the noise will go away.
i would just replace those transistors,
some have an op amp like a ua741 8 pin chip.
that will cause the same problem.
there is a fet version of the op amp,same problem.
if you get an audio tracer,you will hear the noise,and where it is coming from.
you can use an oscilloscope,but they cost 1000 and up.
you will see the noise waveforms.

I have a constant blinking ted light on my carver av405 amp can't get any sound out of it

The amplifier is in "protect" mode, possibly because the output stage was driven too hard or it overheated (thermal shutdown).

My carver HR - 895 was staticy at times on FM and all the sudden shut off. Now it won't Power up at all what do I do ?

Do you have an indicator light blinking or illuminated? If so, your amp has DC Offset, meaning a damaged amplifier. The static noise you heard, may have been DC voltage on the speaker output.

If you are interested in having your Carver repaired, please visit my website at You may contact me there. Thank you.

Carver TFM 35 amp what is the best way to hook it to a Marantz AV8003 pre app

No. You should use the line(or preamp output) to the Carver input. The only way you could use the tape output is if the Carver has input volume controls.

I have a carver M 1.5 amp rt. channel is out.

Carver designs in general are not easy to repair. I would recommend that you send this unit into a Carver authorized service center. The likely problem is the output transistors, but the driver circuits and predrivers are not simple designs and if there is a problem there, it could effect the outputs. Tracing this will require equipment and schematics that I don't believe are available on the net.

Connecting NAD 314 Receiver\ preamp to Carver M-500t to speakers

Dear Tim,
Yes, you can connect your NAD as a preamp to the Carver power Amp.

Connect the NAD's pre-out to the input of the Carver Power Amp. You can then connect the Klipsch speaker to the Carver. Set the gain control on the NAD.

Now you should be able to control all the input and the main volume control from the NAD.

The DVD system problably doesent have PRE AMP can take the record outputs from the DVD system and use them to connect to the input of the power amp. You then will need o use the Carvers volume controls as the volume controls as the record output of the DVD system will be a fixed output set at 0db.

Carver M-400a schematic

You are not likely to find any Carver stuff for short money. What is the problem you are trying to solve? Maybe you don't need a schematic.
