Very noisy left channel on my Sony amp - where can I get it repaired near Scarborough?

Sony HCD-SD1 Amplifier with built-in CD Player and FM Radio - high quality and expensive, so well worth repairing if I can find someone reliable to carry out the repair.

    Similar Problem - Same stereo...

    Works fine but after a while sound cuts out, it returns again but goes again and normally then forever, until I switch off and don't use for a while.

    Anyone an idea what this is? And how to fix it?

    Hi there,

    I have a Sony HCD-SD1 myself. But recently it fell on the floor and broke completely. Now I am trying to get reimbursement from my insurance company.

    Problem is I don't remember how much it cost when I bought it brand news back in 2001 or 2002.

    Do you have any idea what the price was back then or perhaps what Sony product that would be an appropriate replacement today?

    All the best,
    Flemming

Generally the audio output IC causes this and it will have to be replaced.

Good luck on finding a good shop.

hi,
You have to check the ohms of the speakers all spekers should be 8 Ohms or above. if not it will overload the amplifier at high level. The minium ohms impedence of the amplifier is 4 ohms. If you connect two 8 ohms speakers together then the effective ohms will be 4 OHMS then the amp will handle the speakers. If you connect two 4 ohms spekers together then the effective ohms will be 2 Ohms, this will overload the amplifier. You will be able to connect two 8 ohms speaker to left channel or right channel of the amplifier. Check the speaker spesifiction to know its ohms. Make sure all the speakers have an impedence of 8 OHMS or above
OK

I have a sony ta-fe370 amplifier. I bought it 5 years ago. 4 years ago it stopped working. I would now like to repair it. The problem is that it turns on and the power light comes on and so does the...


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.

I have a 6 CD Changer but dont know how to use it?


This is an older way that makers of CD changers used to get CDs into cars that didn't have them.  This is what they tried to get people to by them.  I was never a fan of this system as the sound quality was never better than listening to FM radio.  There is a unit in the car, usually under the dash behind the glove box, that the CD changer is plugged into.  This unit has the FM antenna from the car plugged into it, and then a cable that is the same as that coming from the antenna going from the unit under the dash plugged into the FM antenna jack of the radio in the dash.  All this unit does is take the digital, high quality sound from the CDs, transmit it on an FM frequency (usually low on the FM band 80s, 90s or low 100s) and then you tune the radio into that FM frequency to get the sound form the CDs.  Problem is, the sound quality was only as good as FM radio.  A pretty poor way of getting CDs into cars.  But they sold millions of these things.  If it isn't working, the wiring may have come loose, the fuse to the unit under the dash might be blown, or something is disconnected.  if you go all through the FM dial, 0.1 at a time and don't hear it, it is time to get under the dash near the glove box and poke around.  Good luck.  If it were me, I would take all this gear out and put a new CD/MP3 player where the factory radio currently sits.

No sound


When the amplifier will turn on but not produce any sound that is usually an indication of either the high voltage power supply inside the amplifier is not working, or the amplifier IC or amplifier circuit is damaged. It is not something that can be repaired unless you have experience working on electronics.

Drop out of left channel, Adcom GFA5802


It sounds as if there is a broken solder joint somewhere that slowly opens up with heat. The other possibility is that an input or driver transistor is dying. Since the whole channel is dying, I would guess the broken joint and/or dying transistor are near the very input of the channel.
A tech can very easily find the spot by playing the amp until it starts to die, then spraying small bursts of freeze spray, one component or area at a time, until the amp suddenly comes back to life.

check volume balance between right and left-then change inter connection between sound source and amplifier with new cabel(i prefer gold plated type connectors)(see radio shack).
after that if the problem excit your fault in output transistors or output stereo ic depend on circuit design.
