Question about Crown CE2000 Amplifier

2 Answers

Fault condition My amp will go into fault mode for no apparent reason.  Turning the amp on and off several times will usually clear the condition and it operates normally otherwise but I'm concerned that it might quit in the middle of a gig.  This problem happens without any other equip./speakers connected.  FYI I bought this amp second hand and there was damage to the case (rack ears) during shipping. Any thoughts?  I'm reluctant to send it back to Crown due to shipping costs and it's age.  Watts are pretty inexpensive these days. Thanks in advance, Mike

    I just bought a Crown 402 used. It has worked fine for weeks. When I closed the case it was working and now it stays in protection mode. The fault light stays on. When cold after first initialization, the fault relay clicks and the ligths goes out but then click it comes on and stays on.

    Could the output wires have been jostled into a short condition.???

    I'm sure it will cost way more than it is worth to have it repaired even if the repair shop finds only a short and not component failure.

    Thanks

I cant assume to know your technical ability but, if you trust yourself to open the case without being scared, unplug the unit and do so. Then, where ever you can find connectors that unplug, do so and spray the contacts with something like De-oxit contact cleaner . You can buy some online or at radio shack.

This stuff only takes a few minutes to dry so you can check your amp again.

Dont send it to Crown ( too much $$$) . Maybe you can locate a shop in your area. Do a web search

    If you can solder ( reasonably) reflow ( add some new solder) the relay contacts associated with the outputs. If there's no super-tech near you you can try a TV shop and have them check solder joints for you and rework them if needed

Very loud cracking when turning on standby switch


Do some quick tests to locate the fault area....
i) With all gain controls at minimum & amp warmed up, turn on the standby switch & observe the large output valves for sparking or flashing (could be breakdown in one of them).
ii) Remove V6 (12AT7). Is the crackling still there? If so, the fault is in the final output stage (four 6L6GT's).
iii) To test the output stage, keep V6 removed & remove V7 & V9. If the fault clears then one of those 6L6's is likely to be faulty.
iv) If the fault persists, reinsert V7,V9 & remove V8,V10. If fault clears, then V8 or V10 is the culprit.
v) If the fault still doesn't clear, then desolder coupling capacitors C22,C23 - which may be leaky.

I suspect the fault is the output stage valves, in which case it's best to buy a matched set of 4 & re-bias.

No valve tester is needed here!

Dishwasher clean light is blinking- manual says the heater circuit is malfunctioning. how do i fix it?


The problem is usually attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling. Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval (this time may differ between models). There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault. Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

Problem started when I installed a new black cartridge, which apparently didn't fit properly (it was loose and didn't click into place). Printer kept trying to calibrate for new cartridge, but wouldn't...


Hi, Pls plug it to power and open the cover to replace cartridge. After that remove power cord & remove cartridge. Clean slot & printer head.

Kenmore Model 665.15979992 (Elite) dishwasher: lock light blinks and none of the reset suggestions on your website that I've tried appear to work. Any thing else before a service call?


The blinking "clean light" is a common problem with some of the Kenmore and Whirlpool models dishwashers.
The problem is usually attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling.

Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval (this time may differ between models).
There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault.
Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times.
The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button.
This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot BEFORE you start the dishwasher.
This will heat the water in the supply line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink supply line).

The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the requirements of the temperature sensing circuits.
If the fault reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel under the door that explains what the fault is.
The flashing light will be a series of flashes, followed by a pause.
If you indeed have a component problem, it will depend on the number of flashing lights in the sequence.
Refer to the tech sheet to determine WHAT component is affected and how to troubleshoot.

Air suspension inactive


you can try turning the ignition on and off , only to position two ond off with out starting , between 20 - 30 times this sometimes confuses modules and causes them to clear faults , if not i would recomend getting it plugged in , if vehicle is not in warranty go to landrover specialist , much cheaper!!!!!
