Question about Jensen XA2150 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Sound comes on, goes away

It is definately NOT temp related. I have to get this amp fixed because I bought it 7 years ago and its molded into a seat to fit. I sent it away to Protech and they said nothing was wrong with it. I will be driving and all of a sudden the sound will go away, usually fades off first. If I turn it up high it shuts off pretty much. I have remote switches on my dash and if I turn them off then back on sometimes htey kick back on. Im not sure what to do but I HAVE to get this working again. They have been where they are for 5 years and have never had one problem with them. Other amp works fine. The amp not working is a Jensen 300 watt amp 2 channel and I use it for subs. Any help is appreciated.

The problem could be a failing magnetron or control board. The tingle may be traceable to a faulty receptacle installation - one with a floating ground or incorrect wiring such as reversal of the hot and neutral lines. The vibrating sound seems to be one of the quirks of GE microwaves.

My 2003 Mercury Mountaineer has an electrical problem. It started about a year ago with the key fob not working, I have bought 3 and all won't work even after re-programing. now tonight I went to

Could be a windshile leak down the A-Pillar & water
gets into the delayed accy relay for the GEM Module
(Body Computer as ford called it for a few years) & you
get what you have now

Try Goolge as I did a few weeks ago for a relative
He had the same issue with the blower being on &
killing the battery

No real fix I found for the windshield leak
Seem a robot didn't put the rubber sealant
on correctly at the factory fo about 5 years
on several fords.

If it isn't water related then the GEM Module
controls all those body features

If you get a used one & match up the numbers,
you supposedly can avoid buying a reman gem
& the expense of having to reflash it to your factory

5 yr old tv goes through cycle and tries to come on, eventually does but after many tries.

My sony did almost the exact same thing. I removed the bulb & cleaned all the dust out of the cooling ducts & the screen on the bulb was full of dust. That bought me about a month, then I replaced the bulb & haven't had a problem since(over a year ago). Just make sure you NEVER touch the glass of the new bulb with your hands,oil on your skin will greatly shorten the bulb life! I found a bulb at a local electronics store for under $200.00... don"t forget to clean dust from cooling ducts,& make sure cooling fan is working, bulb gets extremely hot!

The problem is hard to track down, but fixable. You need to determine if the pre-amp has failed or the power amp. To determine which try this: Connect a device which plays music and turn the volume control fully up! You can sometimes hear the sound better via a pair of headphones. If you can hear any signal or music breaking through, then the pre-amp section is OK. If you can't it might not be. If you can hear faint music then it will be the main power amp to blame. Now because you have lost both channels you must only investigate devices (such as IC's) which have both channels running to them. Some amps have one big power amp IC that does the work. So if that goes it takes the sound with it. Have a look at whatever is on the big heat sink first, that will determine a lot of your future actions.

Humming sound in subwoofer after it's been playing for a while

It sounds like you are describing an earth loop problem. I won't go into detail in this post, but try an isolation test first. disconnect everything from the reciever except the sub and try connecting say a BATTERY powered mp3 player or cd player to minimise connections to the electrical mains earth. you could also isolate things by taking your sub to a friend's house and trying it on their system.
If it is an earth loop use a process of elimination to find out which two pieces of equipment causes the earth loop. then apply filtering.
you can buy earth loop isolation transformers for about AU$26 and I've used one on my sub myself. Theyhave RCA (phono)plugs on each end and they connect inline with the signal cable to the sub amp.

as for the thumping sound it might be the speaker protection circuitry cutting off the amp to protect the subwoofer speaker from damaged. This might be triggered if the earth loop sound is causing the sub amp to overload and clip.

Failing this there might be a dried out overheated electro capacitor in the amp circuit causing the hum. Hav a chat to your local electronics person, who should be able to spot it!
Hope this puts you on the right track
Happy Hunting!
