Question about Yamaha P2500S Amplifier

1 Answer

Appears to be no output signal from P2500S

I connected an MP3 player to the 1/4" inputs with a stereo splitter cable. I then connected 2 6 metre 1/4" plugs to both the output sockets, turned the amp on and started playing an MP3. Now, when i turn the knobs on the front (the -dB ones) to the right, the "signal" LEDs flicker in time with the music. So far so good. I then connected an oscilloscope to the other leads from the output 1/4" jacks, and got no signal on the scope! Why? Is my amp broken or am i retarded? I'm planning on setting up a large stereo system for parties etc, and i want this thing working to drink some full range speakers. :( HALP NAO!!!xx

    "to drink some full range" drive** some full range speakers
    Some crazy word assocation goin on when i was typing that there

  • xephiir Feb 02, 2008

    Ah, legend! I know what i was doing wrong. I was wiring the scope up to a 1/4" female solder terminal thingy i got from maplin, connected in turn to the output. Seems that its faulty, when i wired the scope directly to the jack i got a reading. Gorgeous. Im thinking ill turn the amp down and connect it to some passive speakers ive got in my attic, thing is theyre only at most 100W, so ill have to be a bit careful not to blow em. As i understand it though, speakers more usually blow when theyre more powerful than the amp.
    Cheers for the help anyway dude!

Make sure you use the sleeve as ground reference on the 1/4" connector then check that aginst the ring and or tip and then you should see something on the oscilloscope. Let me know if that works. Have you tried hooking up some speakers? We can live chat if that help you any. Let me know Guru Jay

I had a TV amplifier Channel Master 3042 I need to know how to connect it


This amp can be used with an off-air antenna or a cable box (up to channel 141).

With an antenna: Connect your antenna to the input. Connect the output to the tv's RF (antenna) input (if you're only driving one tv from this amp), or a splitter (if you're driving several tv's).

With a cable box: Connect the feed from the cable company to the amp's input. Connect the output to the input of the cable box.

Want to connect more speakers


Use splitter cables to double your outputs. The signal strength will be half to each speaker per channel. i.e. if each channel has an output of 100w then splitter cables will give you 4 x 50w to connect up. Aim to use speakers rated below the max output rating of your amp, so in this example 4 x 40w speakers would be safer (won't blow your amp) than 4 x 60w speakers

How do I connect my CD Player, Tape Deck and Tuner to the SU 300 Technics Amplifier


hi,
For connecting these to your amplifier you need 4 Stereo RCA Cable.
1.Connection for cd:
Take one of the RCA cable connect the one end (red/white) jack to the line out of your cd and connect the other end (red/white) to the CD input of Your amplifier.
2. Connecting the tunner:
Take one of the RCA cable and connect the one end (red/white) jack to the line output of you Tuner and connect the other end (red/white) to the TUNER input of your amplifier.
3. Connectiong the tape deck:
Now you have two RCA cable. Take one of the RCA cable and connect the one end (red/white) jacks to the PLAY out of the Tape deck and connect the other end (red/white) to the TAPE 1 play input of your amplifier.
Now connect the last RCA cable. Connect the one end (red/white) jack to the record input of the TAPE deck And connect the other end (red/white) to the TAPE 1 Record input of your amplifier.(this connection will help you to record to tape from cd or tuner. if you are not interested in recording then you can avoid this connection.)

Now you can select these three items from the frond plannel control switch of the amplifier.
ok

I have a Sony Amplifier [model TA-AX380] and other components of CD player [model DCP-C40], AM/FM Tuner [model ST-JX380], FM Stereo/FM-AM Receiver [model STR-AV570X], and Stereo Cassette Deck [model...

Hi above are links for manuals, these may help..
When one wires up anything it is all usually color to color output to input... usually RED & WHITE stereo audio.
Now we would start with our Tuner this the CD player, & Cassette deck, will wire into the Amp's INPUTs , red - red & white - white, these go into the Stereo INPUTs on the AMP... 1, 2 & 3 and be selected via the input selector on the AMP.
Now after all these in's and out's are wired we need to wire our speakers, this too is simple, locate the outputs on the Amp, and wire accordingly, Plus to Plus and Negative to Negative... each speaker has two wires a Plus, + & a Negative -
All will/should be clearly marked and it will be easy to do. You will need patch leads, one set each for each unit, these will be a pair of cables, usually Red & White with RCA jacks on each end, as related these go color to color from the RCA OUTPUTs Sockets, of the signal suppliers, ie: Tuner, FM stereo & Cassette deck... these ALL will wire into the Main Amplifiers INPUTS, usually at rear of unit, and clearly marked, after this is all done, then as related again now connect the Speakers, again the OUTPUT on the Amp will be clearly marked, as output and + & -, + & - (two sets), one for each channel.
Now each INPUT is selected ON the AMP, and it's output will then be directed to the speakers attached to the Amp..... Just wire and test one at a time, and i am sure you will prevail.
Hope this helps.

I have a technics stereo system and im trying to run a lead from my phone to the input and play music through it but i cannot find a input on the stereo model number sa-eh790


I'm going to assume you mean a cell phone or other device with a headset output...

Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input. Get a cable like the one described here:


http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021804&p_id=665&seq=1&format=2


and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono". Turn the MP3 player volume up.

Attenuated output


Since you are able to view the output i'm assuming you are using an oscilloscope and only the positive or negative half of the sine wave is displayed. The output stage will be using a complimentry pair of output transistors, one amplifies the positve half cycle the other the negative. These are driven by a driver stage (phase splitter). One side is not amplifying. First measure the pos' and neg' LT supply rails. If ok check
ouput transistors with analog Ohm meter for base / emitter / collector continuity. If the amp uses an output IC and LT supplies are ok then use scope to view input signal, if input ok but output bad then IC is suspect. Since both channels are affected your problem is most likely a missing LT supply rail.

How do i wire 1 cd player to two yamaha rx 497 stereo receivers


The answer depends more on our knowing what the CD player is than what the receivers are.

Does it have both digital and analog outputs? That would be one way? Coaxial digital outputs can sometimes be shared with two end units by placing an RCA splitter on the cable.

A single analog output can also be split with RCA splitters.

Couldn't you just slave the second receiver to the first one (via Tape 2 Rec/Out to the other one's Aux In or Tape PB/In) so ANYTHING the first receiver processes could be accessed by the second one?

No stereo signal out from yamaha p 2500 s


It's unclear what type of connectors are on the end of the cables(s) coming from your computer.

This amp only works with mono 1/4" TRS and XLR connectors, not standard RCA connectors.

Did you try the Right one in the Left Channel to see if the Left Channel worked?

Refer to the following manual and read up on the connectors (page 7) and the use of the Stereo/Parallel/Bridge Switch (page 8). When it is NOT in Stereo Mode the unit only uses the Right Channel controls and input.

http://img3.musiciansfriend.com/dbase/pdf/man/m_480824.pdf

STEREO/PARALLEL/BRIDGE switch
Use this switch to select the operating mode.
• STEREO mode
Channels A and B operate independently (as with a conventional
stereo amplifier). The Channel A input goes to the Channel
A output jacks, and the Channel B input goes to the
Channel B output jacks.
• PARALLEL mode
The Channel A input signal is output through both the Channel
A and Channel B output jacks. The Channel B input jacks do
not function. Channel A and B volumes can be independently
adjusted.
• BRIDGE mode
The Channel A input signal is output from the BRIDGE output
jacks. To adjust the volume, you must use the Channel A volume
control knob.

Connection


There are 2 ways to have an EQ in the system. If the mixer (1204) has inserts for the mains, you can use a set of insert cables to connect the EQ. If not, connect the Output of the mixer to the Input of the EQ and the Output of the EQ to the Input of the Amp.

The insert cables will allow you to electrically connect the EQ as described above only using a single set of cables. These cables are 1/4" balanced or stereo at one end (Tip-Ring-Sleeve) and dual XLR at the other. You will need 2 insert cables, one for right and one for left.

Hope this helps,
dan
