Question about Cambridge Audio Azur 340A 2-Channel Amplifier
Hi,i have a Cambridge Audio Azur 340A with a cd deck and amplifier, stopped working,im getting no sound at all,both decks turn on,cd runs but no sound,and the guy i bought it of said that a cliperd or clipert is faulty what ever that means ,i hope someone knows what that means,im a handy man,i like to fix my own things,but i dont have any idea of what im doing at the moment,could anyone out there help me with this,or maybe send me diagnostic chart i can look at to pin point the problem,
thank you all for your support,
Start with the basics first. 1. With the amp on, in each imput socket plug a dual end phono cable in and touch the right and left plugs with your finger. You should get a buzz on each speaker. No buzz and the channel at that terminal is not working. If none of the terminals buzz. Then the amp is dead.
If some buzz and others not you have a pre-amp problem.
2: Amp Dead. Could be A power supply. B main pre-amp. C Power Amp.
The power supply check for a fuse.
The main pre-amp will only effect both channels if an IC controls both.
The Power Amp will again only loose both channels generally if it is an IC. It will be attached to a big heat sink and have lots of pins comming from it.
If it uses transistors for the main amp, you can check these with an Ohm meter. With the power off place the leads on each terminal of each transistor. If the meter goes fully over (like when you touch the leads together) each way it has shorted.
The thing to remember when repairing stereo amps. Is that the amp is two identical amps joined together. So what happens one side will happen on the other. If both channels don't work look for something that is common to both.
PS never heard of 'cliperd'.
