I got an amp from my buddy who was going to throw it out cause he broke the 0.2 to 6 volt dial. He discarded the old broken part out of fustration. Anyone know the part number for said missing piece? ...

so we know a few things...

1. you guys are inside the amp removing board soldered components.

could be a good thing since what you can do to sleuth a solution is this...
a. know that the 'knob' is actually a variable-resistor that ranges resistance from a start value to a max value.

b. you can ascertain the range by opening a similar amp and testing the resistance range as you rotate the knob.

c. pick the mid value resistance and buy a cheap resistor of that value, then just solder the resistor in place of the two knob-control bread board connectors.

If the fuse is not on the outside of the amp, usually near the live input. it will be inside the amps casing. you may have to look around carefully as maybe under parts or hidden. if not on ouside of amp, 100% its inside the amp

clipping can result from improper wiring or solder jumps to figure this out youll need a continuity tester simply check you inputs and outputs and make sure wiring is correct then if so your amp has a solder jump inside them amp. New amp or send it in for repair you can buy a new amp nearly every brand at dealer cost from this site.

How to hook up kenwood kac-7204 1000watt amp

I found the manual & have pasted the url here for you. some things to keep in mind. according to the instruction manual this unit is rated @ 500W, not 1000W. Also to maximize the output you should use 2ohm speakers for stereo applications. Also make sure if you need to extend the power wire, use 10 gauge copper & make sure it's connected to the car battery thru a 60 amp fuse. Also make sure the ground is attached to a clean metal frame or body part by using a bolt & nut not merely a screw. Good luck. If you need additional assistance let me know.

It sounds like you have some broken solder connections on the power terminal. if you know how to solder and are good at taking things apart and putting them back together you can fix it pretty easy.

Car amps are not always very easy to take apart if you have never done it before.

Radioshack guys don't know much at all about real repair work, but they can help find a part you might need.

This can probably be fixed at a repair shop for $60 to $80 depending on the shops rates.

You know one thing for sure, the amp will work if you hold the terminal down. If it was an electrical problem that needed some real troubleshooting done, holding your finger on the power terminal would not make it start working again. This has to be a bad connection inside the amp.

Feel free to ask for more help again if you need it, and if this was helpful to you a good rating would be appreciated. Thanks

Pyramid - PS21KX 20 Amp Powersupply overload

The problem I have had with a PS-20 is a blown capacitor. Hooked to a radio, would allow radio to receive fine, but when trying to transmit, amperage would bottom out. Behind the transformer is a large circuit board. UNPLUG POWER SUPPLY, remove cover, Undo the two nuts, flip board over, and gently rock the 4700uf capacitors side to side. If they move more than 1/16th of an inch, chances are they are blown. Remove/replace and should be good to go...

When I ignite my stereo system the indicator of ignition of my KAC-9102D is blinking

Here is the link for the user manual for your amp if you need it; There appears to be no designed error code indicated by a flashing power light. the light is either on or off.(page 2) I think therefore that your amp has a major problem in the control part of the circuitry, almost certainly something that needs replacing rather than being repairable. if you wish to try yourself then if you can open the amp up, and post us some clear close up photos then we may be able to help. If you wish to find the nearest Kenwood dealer then; Hope this helps - sorry if it is bad news :)

Amp install disaster...?

Try first to disconnect all of the speakers on the amp. See if the amp will turn on now. If not , the amp has bad output devices, or drivers, and or the switch mode power supply is fried. There is no easy fix with solid state elctronics as there are no user serviceable parts inside. The units going to need to be repaired by a service tech unless you know how to solder, unsolder, test mosfets, transistors, and diodes as well as resistor.

Jensen A600HLX

These solid state amps have no user serviceable parts inside them as everything is soldered into place and your gonna need to know how to use a multimeter to trouble shoot the parts inside the amp on the printed circuit board. Sorry But without the proper training and the right tools you could cause more damage to the amp if you dont know what your doing. You cannot just open the unit and see whats bad. You must test each suspected bad part and replace it as needed. You should take the amp in to have a pro look at it, as there is no easy fix on these unless its an external fuse, and a fuse will very rarely blow all by itself. Good Luck
