Adcom GFA 7000

One of the 5 channels doesn't work. I believe my speaker wires had shorted momentarily, it blew a fuse. I replaced the fuse but that didn't fix the problem. What else should I check?

Your output transistor, IC( integrated circuit), tubes. around the output side of the amplifier.

How do you connect wiring to bridge an adcom gfa 5300?

The manual does not specify a bridging option.

Not bridgable."

Generally an amp that IS bridgeable uses the positive speaker terminals and some switching method to tell the unit to run as bridged. This is NOT a recommendation to try it on the 5300.

Channel problem

It's almost certain the two are connected. I suspect that one or more of the devices on the heat sink has shorted (acting like a piece of wire) and has blown the fuse.

Any special tools need to replace out put transistors?

Adcom systems in general are compact and not the easiest to work on. There are no specialized tools required. Just be careful as there can be wires that are short that can be damaged. Make sure that the driver circuits are OK prior to jsut replacing the outputs. If you don't you may just blow the replacement parts as well.

Adcom gfa 555 blows the 10 amp fuse and the 6 amp fuse on the far right

Any fuse blowing is caused by a shorted component in either the power supply section or main audio amp part. Follow the fuse circuit and see where it leads you. Look around for burnt of damaged parts. Suspect anything sitting on a heat sink. The most common culprit is the audio amp main transistors, especially if someone shorted the speaker leads together. In the power part it could be the transformer, the large Electrolytic capacitors, rectifier, or voltage regulator. Some amps use an IC for amplification and this can blow the fuse.

Adcom GFA-5002 is dead no lights, no anything

Check the Fuse. Unplug the AC first. If you replace the fuse and it blows again, disconnect all speakers, replace the fuse and turn on. If the fuse does not blow, chances are it is a speaker problem, Adcom builds some very solid product, I would suggest pulling the outdoor speakers and testing them.
Depending on what you are using, some outdoor speakers should never be taken out of the living room. If you still have an issue post a comment and I will help some more.

Adcom GFA 5500 right channel emits horrible sound. Broken highs and no bass. Is is repairable by a semi amatuer?

Adcom makes a great amplifer! Usually broken highs and no bass means blown speaker. Try hooking it up to a completely different input source. Try different speakers also. If problem persists, check the fuse. Most will have a fuse on the back you can screw out. Some have two fuses (one for each channel) If this doesn't fix the problem it could be expensive to fix. Also, does this model ave the thermal protection light and if so, does it come on at all?

ADCOM GFA7500 problem

I don't have experience with the 7500 but I had a 7000 with multiple bad channels (red light lit). The problem was bad filter capacitors on the amplifier boards. The large black filter caps (two per channel) were leaking on every amp board. Its a relatively easy repair if you can solder.

FYI you'll probably need a set of small hex head drivers to open the unit.
