Re: faulty amp

Could be in the remote wire at least thats what to hope for. did you wire it off the cd player or off the hot wire. i had a boss doing the same thing but wouldn't stay on b/c i wired the remote off the hot. if that ain't it then and i hate to say this your power supply may not be adequate, you could try using heavier gauge wire. if that didn't do it then your alternative would be get a smaller amp or get a bigger battery with high output altinater

Technics Amplifier SU-V4

The clicking sound will be a relay for the protection circuit. That could be faulty, but first check out the main devices on the main amp section. Those attached to the big heat sink. If you see a single IC amp that could well be faulty.

Crown xs 700 power amp when powered comes on briefly then fault led illuminates,when ch2 is diconnected internally amp comes on with no fault condition indicated,i think the amp has had a load problem,more...

First confirmed if your speaker and wire are not shorted. Once it is in good condition then it has a big chances that you have a faulty output IC. This is quite technical and I've advice to send it to qualified service center to isolate the problem. This is fixable.
Thanks for using fixya.

Amp won't come out of safety protection mode. have soldered many suspected dry joints and checked voltages on IC502 (Power Amp IC) PLEASE help!!!

The protection mode is often switched on when an overload has/is happened/happening. This is caused more often than not by faulty speaker wiring or problems. It sounds to me like IC502 might well be the cause, or perhaps a faulty relay if it uses one. But IC's are often to blame, this one might even control the protect mode!

Technics SU-G88. When volume is wide open get small amnount of sound, as sugested I have already replaced the op ic IC602 and this did not help. Is it possible that both audio power modules bolted to the...

problem with electronics is there are so many possibilities! before changing the power amp i suggest u check all the paths from pre-amp to power amp. bad resistors cud be it, faulty capacitor cud be draining power to ground. insufficient power supply to final amp cud also be it. so before making any rash changing pls check all components including the power amp module.

No sound on right channel. no output on right channel. already change power output ic's, but no result. SU-V10X amplifier. Panasonic Technic


Take a look if your outputrelay is switching on.
If so, then measure if the signals coming thrue.
Offcourse only if you are sure that there is a signal present.

Pioneer vsx-604s power problem


The problem is not likely to be the power supply, but shorted output transistors. If you do not see the standby light, then the problem is likely to be either an open standby transformer (primary) or perhaps the 5V regulator transistor. You have given very little info to go on here. Can you provide a little more info on what happens when you try to turn it on?

Hi guys

Quick check... If the amp still stays in safety mode with the vol turned down and the speakers disconnected, it will have failed in some way. Since you have the safety operation light ON, you can expect that the power transformer is OK. I would expect that you have a DC offset condition on one channel. The most common problems you may have are
  1. dry solder joints about the power stages such as regulators, and output/driver transistors/IC's.
  2. blown output transistors/output IC with possible fusible resistor failures, and or sometimes burnt up printed circuit tracks.
  3. a voltage rail failure from a burnt fusible or power supply component.
If you are up with electronic fault finding, soldering and have the tools, have a go yourself, I could talk you through it. If not, I would suggest you contact you local HiFi specialist and find who can repair it or at least check to see what has failed for you. Good Luck. If you cannot find someone, hit me back and I will try to find someone for you. Cheers

Problems with the Operation circuit on Technics SU-A900 MKII aplifier.

Hi There Cushy,

The Amp needs Power.....and if the power switch is turned on and the light doesnt come on then there is no power....

Have a good look around the back of the amp and see if you can find a fuse please...

Its a small circular plastic item labelled "FUSE" with a screwdriver slot in it..

Turn the power off at the wall socket then unscrew this fuse holder, the glass / ceramic fuse will come out,,, replace it with one of the same physical size and of the same rating probably 1.5Amp.

Turn the amp back on and it should go if not then there is a major failure inside the case.....Needs a serice call Im afraid....

Cheers From YUBEUT
