Question about Cambridge Audio Azur 340A 2-Channel Amplifier

1 Answer

Hi, i just had my cambridge azur 340 A SE back from repairs under the warrenty agreement, the left chanel had started to break up and buzz. I just replugged, checked all my cabling and am not getting good sound. i don't have the vocal on anything i play, I can hear the base and guitars but everything else is pushed to the background, and almost sounds like its phasing. Ive tried lots of different music, and double triple checked cables??? i've checked the speakers on another machine and they are fine (Triangle comete 202) is there something else i should be checking?

You should have reported the faults back to the repair people! It does however sound like an earth link is missing or detached. It's possible that somebody has not soldered something right, or during transit a dry joint developed.

Cambridge Audio Azur 640R AV Recorder won't switch off


Sounds like the unit is victim of a power surge. The power control board is probably damaged. You will be better off replacing the amp as having it repaired will cost more than replacing it.

Cambridge audio azur 840a volume control problems


The volume control is a resistor ladder controlled by software. If powering off the unit for an hour doesn't fix it, I would imagine that one of the "steps" has a problem. Contact your dealer or visit http://support.cambridgeaudio.com/.

Did you take the time to fill out the Warrenty Card? It's VERY important that you do when you buy ANYTHING, especially electronics. Call the store where you bought it. Ask them if they can track it (the sale) If it can be fixed under warranty, be prepared to have to ship it back to the manufacturer.

Cambridge Audio Azur 340A amplifier,no sound


Start with the basics first. 1. With the amp on, in each imput socket plug a dual end phono cable in and touch the right and left plugs with your finger. You should get a buzz on each speaker. No buzz and the channel at that terminal is not working. If none of the terminals buzz. Then the amp is dead.
If some buzz and others not you have a pre-amp problem.
2: Amp Dead. Could be A power supply. B main pre-amp. C Power Amp.
The power supply check for a fuse.
The main pre-amp will only effect both channels if an IC controls both.
The Power Amp will again only loose both channels generally if it is an IC. It will be attached to a big heat sink and have lots of pins comming from it.
If it uses transistors for the main amp, you can check these with an Ohm meter. With the power off place the leads on each terminal of each transistor. If the meter goes fully over (like when you touch the leads together) each way it has shorted.
The thing to remember when repairing stereo amps. Is that the amp is two identical amps joined together. So what happens one side will happen on the other. If both channels don't work look for something that is common to both.
Good luck
PS never heard of 'cliperd'.

The left channel in my Cambridge Azur 640 amplifier keeps cutting out. Wierdly I can often 'shock' it back to life by quickly turning up the volume a lot. Any ideas?


have the volume control cleaned by a spray of electronic contact cleaner. If the carbon coating material is already wiped-out due to use, have the part replaced

My Cambridge azur 540C compact disc player won't read CDs.


Hi...

After about 100 CD-DVD units, I've found that most problems are from debris/film on the laser lens.
If taking the cover off the unit doesnt scare you, unplug it and blow out the CD assembly with a can of compressed CO2
and VERY lightly clean the laser lens with 91% or better alcohol on a cotton swab.
If that doesnt work , contact Cambridge Audio for a repair service.
