Hi, first it's not power, it's the voltage you need to know, is the transformer burt, if not you can mesure the voltage output by putting a voltmeter at the primery to see if 120vac is there and then the output to see how mutch at each two wire at orange is and then at the two red is. They should be about 24vac on orage and 60 volts at the red.
Not shure what the voltage just guessing, if totaly dead then you have a burt transformer, some of these unit have a internal fuse, you may see them on the top, they may be also thermal shutdown sensor's fuse type, look to see if there is one, if so look at there value, thermal has a degree in C for the value and pico fuse has amp's or ex 4a .

I hope this help

I need to know where I can buy a transformer for my m1.5t carver amp or at least get a part number for it?

Try the Carver forum . The only place that might have one is the service centre in Snohomish Washington. I have rebuilt MANY 1.5t's....what led you to believe it is the transformer ? They rarely go, unless the amp was overfused. Shout me back...I can probably help you. Oh and the part number is "power transformer for a 1.5t" is unique to the 1.5t and one from a PM 1.5t ( professional version ) will NOT work. ....Rob

Is it normal for carver power amps to have a slight hum? I have a carver-55x

Hum can come from a jillion different places. Is this hum coming from the unit with no speakers connected, or is it heard through the speakers? What sources are being used? What cables? Are thereany common sources of interference near? Troubleshooting is difficult without much information.

A standard transformer would work just be sure the power rating is equal to or higher the voltage should stay about the same.

I don't have any instructions so i don't know how to hook up my speakers and the t.v for surround sound i have a carver avr 100

You should be able to online to the manufacturer of your products and download manuals. However, I will try to help.

Connect the sound output cables from your DVD player including, left/right(white/red) as well as the Coax output/input if your DVD and your Carver each have this feature for enhanced sound on certain DVDs, and connect to the matching DVD inputs on your Carver.

Then, connect your DVD video output either by use of your RGB(RED/GREEN/BLUE cables or an S Video cable to your the matching video inputs on your t.v.

On the back of your Carver, you will find outputs for left and right speakers, connect to the left and right speakers with proper wire. Make sure that the 2 conductor wire is connected with the same side(polarity) on all speakers for the best sound quality.

You will also find rear channel left and right outputs on your amp, connect those to your rear right and left speakers.

Connect the center channel speaker to the center channel speaker output on your amp.

If your Amp has a sub-woofer output and you have a subwoofer, make the connections on that as well.

Test all of the speakers with a feature that many amps have on the menu using your remote, simply called test. if all speakers are connected correctly you will be able to hear each one as they are individually tested by the amp. Hope this helps out.

I have a carver M 1.5 amp rt. channel is out.

Carver designs in general are not easy to repair. I would recommend that you send this unit into a Carver authorized service center. The likely problem is the output transistors, but the driver circuits and predrivers are not simple designs and if there is a problem there, it could effect the outputs. Tracing this will require equipment and schematics that I don't believe are available on the net.

Carver home amp

The DVD system problably doesent have PRE AMP can take the record outputs from the DVD system and use them to connect to the input of the power amp. You then will need o use the Carvers volume controls as the volume controls as the record output of the DVD system will be a fixed output set at 0db.

Luxman LV 105 Amplifier gone dumb

Hi: If the Amp has an audio output transformer, check for bad solder connections to the pc board, This are the wires from the transformer to the PC board. Another place to look is the earphone connection plug. If the jack has a bent contact inside of it, you will have all sound cut off. Good Luck.
