It sounds like you have shorted output transistors. If that's the case, you'd have to replace them to repair the amp. If you're not interested in learning to do this type of work, you should have the amp repaired professionally.

If you would like to learn to do this type of work, read the following page. If you have any other questions, let me know.

Milwaukee 8977 - 20 Variable Temperature Heat Gun blows air but no heat. how do you troubleshoot the circuit board or the heating element?


With out the thing plugged in with an OHM meter the heting element can be checked with the nose removed. Most of the time once the nose is removed the problem is easy to see the end is burnt off the element connection. Remake the connection reinstall the nose and test. The heating element runns right off the switch and the connection there is easy to see with the handle opened. This is simple unit and wires burnt off from being too hot is almost always the problem. look it over carfully and the problem will be seen.

Pioneer VSX-D511 Comes up with AMP ERROR and shuts down


I must agree that if the fuses are open and you replace them that your problem maybe fixed. If you can remove the fuse, I recommend taking it to a RadioShack and see if someone there can figure out what it is. I am going to assume that the fuse should be a 250 V. If you can find one that matches the same appearance, go with the smallest aperage rating you can find. Go with this route only if the person can not tell you exactly what it is you need. Be sure to match the type of fuse if you can see inside it like in the case of a glass fuse. Some are slow-blow fuses and some are fast-blow. If you are uncertain your safest bet is to use a fast-blow with a real low amp rating for the voltage you are using. If the amp rating is too low, it may run fine at lower volumes and pop when you turn it up. If I could physically see the fuse, I would probably be able to tell you what it was and what you needed to replace it with.

The power fuse blows as soon as the unit is plugged in


There is a problem with the amplifier within the sub. Many of these units never completely turn off. They are often set to automatically startup when a signal is detected. This may be the case here. The loud hum as a defect in the output amp section. At this point you probably have a blown amp section. The "protection" for this is to cause a dead short that will open up the fuse. This unit will require service. It is unlikely that any service info is availabel to the general public either.

The fix could be simple, but without seeing the unit, I can not state that for sure.

Keep us posted.

Fisher CA-273 amplifier left speaker ports


fuses will be on the inside of the amp. you will have to disconnect it from the power and open the box to get at the fuses( some fuses are accessible from the outside of the amp) also, you may have blown the input or output section of your amp. this is not easy to fix at all. you can blow it from playing your music too loud or from a loud source. while the case is open, have a look at the solder joints on everything. if anything is brown, covered in white residue bulging, melted, burned or looks disconnected, that is probably the problem.

Gemsound power speaker pxa105


First,
Disconnect any input cables from the amp. Turn down the volume controls and disconnect the speakers. Power back on. If you still blow fuses with nothing hooked up, have the amp fixed.
If the fuse holds, shut down and connect the speakers, leaving the volume controls down. Power up and see if your fuse holds. If you have hum, an output transistor is most likely shorted. If you have no noise, SLOWLY turn up the volume controls and listen for the hum. If all is quiet, turn down the volume controls and connect your input cables and turn the volume back up. Noise? check your cables!

Blowing fuses


Here are some answers:

1. Make sure your amp does not have a higher amp rating then the fuse, For example, an 18 amp amplifier will blow an 15 amp fuse, so connect it to a 20 amp fuse

2. you have a connection issue, where something is shorting out

3. you are pushing the amp or car to it's limit with how loud you put it, and thus blowing it, fixed by getting a more powerful amp and a better fuse.

4. or there is something very wrong and cannot help you and you would have to bring it into a shop.

Amp Problems


You are probably presenting too low an impedance load to the amplifier. In bridged mode the amp must be connected to a minimum 4-ohm load. If your subwoofer is a dual voice coil type with 4-ohm voice coils, you cannot wire the voice coils in parallel and connect it to the bridged amplifier. If you have a sub with dual 2-ohm voice coils, you can wire the voice coils in series and connect it to the amplifier in bridged mode. To connect voice coils in series: Connect a wire from the negative terminal of one coil to the positive terminal on the other coil. Connect the unused positive and negative terminals to the amplifier's output.
