Question about Radio Communications
I have a totally dead Texas Star amp that won't even light-up.I have checked both fuses & the big diode diode that crosses both hot fuses.I also took the big diode outta line,& no power.Could someone please tell me what to check next?I also don't see any burnt foil traces.It has 2 fans added to the CW key that are hooked up to the 2nd button,that won't come-on,either.Thank-you!

Squirrly, do you have any experience with a dc voltmeter? If so, I would check the legs on the power switch. You have like 4 or 5 pins in line on the switch. As your pushing the switch in, it's transferring the power from 1 or 2 pins to the other pins. I had a 667 that the power switch burnt inside and would not turn on the amp. The problem is it's a double sided circuit board and the switches come as a set. 2 strikes right there unless your experienced with soldering and desoldering and troubleshooting. The other option I have is that your Texas star is possibly still under warranty. Here is a post telling about it on another site.
Texas Star has an 8-year warranty.
If it's not a basket case you should call Mike at TS and ask for an RA# to send it in for repair.
Even if you don't want to send it in and rather fix it yourself I'd call him and ask for ideas.

Ask for Mike in Texas Star.
