Disconnect your load (speakers) and check.if it is o.k your problem is in speaker.if the problem goen your problem will be short circuit in speaker or cabels.-if not the problem will be in amplifier and this is not logic matter because it is new -anyway try to disconnect all inputs.if the problem goen your problem is in one of the inputs-try to connect input one by one until you find the bad one-if all above failed return your amps back to the shop.(from where you get them)

CROWN CE1000- slips into fault immediately after connection

if ur output power amp is defective u will have that problem - meaning the moment u connect load across it it will go into circuit protection to limit/stop excessive output current. make sure the speaker terminals are connected to +/- output terminals. in bridge mode use only channel 1 and that too with 4 ohms speaker only otherwise amp will clip. considering all connections are okay if it still clips when speaker is connected, u have a faulty power amp section. this the way ur amp is designed

Power indecate foulty

Most likely one or more pairs of the output transistors is shorted. The amp is attempting to drive a signal into a 0 or low ohm load. This unit should see a service center for repair.

The power led light just blink they don't stay on

The amp is in "protect" mode. This means that a problem was detected internally and the output section is shutdown to prevent further damage. There are many possible causes of this. Crown amps are not the easiest to diagnose as many use mulitple voltage levels for different amplification stages. I would suggest that you obtain a repair estimate from an authorized Crown service center before proceeding.

Please keep us posted on your progres.

Fuse for crown ce2000 amp???

The problem is not a fuse. The red light indicates that the unit is in "protect" mode. This means that a problem was detected in the final amplification stage and the unit is prevented from turrning on completely to prevent damaging either the speakers or the amp further. These are not the easiest to repair without prior experience and I would not suggest you attemt the repair. Please seek an authorized Crown repair center for assistance.

Crown com-tech 2 channel 400

One channel has failed and is in need of repair. There are some transistors inside that are "noisy" and sending signals down the line. This is a bit tricky to find, but a service shop that does audio repairs should be able to fix this. Figure about $15-$45 for parts depending upon what circuits are effected.

Crown IT 4000 from ROMANIA

make cleaning to your filter by air blower------- keep good ventilation around in the pass of air(in-out)----after you finish try to test your amp by connecting one speaker only at a time until you find the bad one--------------if all above did not pass you will have internal problem of hardware and needs service center.

Crown 3600vz

maybe you should try to check for a HEAT SWITCH or RELAY FUSE or Fuse located inside the amp. the red indicator was telling you that it TRIPED maybe due to SHORTED terminals from speaker or it reached its maximum peak thats why it triped. email me if it worked. im preaty shure it will work. ciao
