Hi Guys,

Have a look here for a debug of this issue: YouTube - Ampeg SVT-5 Pro Problem YouTube - Ampeg SVT-5 Pro Problem
I recon two fixes are possible:

1. (Easy) increase the size of the heatsink on IC4.

2. (Hard) adjust the turn-on temperature of the fan by adjusting the control circuit.

I'm going to try 1, I'll let you know how I get on. my ampeg svt 5 pro - icon_tup.gif

Cheers,
Grant

Denon receiver avr 1506 has sound issues. One side has very very low crackly sound until the receiver is good and warm then suddenly the sound starts working normally on the affected side. Or if I really...


Sounds like a thermal related problem and what comes to mind is a cold solder joint. I'm thinking that the "good and warm" is the circuit boards heating up inside where-as the "really crank the volume" is sound vibration to the circuit board helping to make connection. Try this...1st time turn on with problem present...use a clenched fist to lightly vibrate the chassis on top, bottom and sides. Does this vibration test make the problem disappear/appear? If it is a solder connection be warned...locating and repairing these type problems is no picnic and most often requires the "trained eye" of a electronics tech to locate.

Sounds like a loose connection. What audio source are you using? If you switch sources, does the other source have the same problem?

Yamaha rx-v800 turns off


Sounds like your receiver has a cold solder joint on the power board at a transistor or capacitor. Not a major repair, however, it will probably run $100 or so to pull it apart, hunt it down and fix the problem. Not sure of your problem with the DVDR. Do you have a "line conditioning, surge protection" unit? Not a Power strip or low end monster surge. Panamax, APC, Furman, make line conditioning surge units that keep your power steady and will shut down in case of voltage fluctuation in both directions. They cost from 200 to 2000 depending on the equipment you are protecting. It is a necessary component to any system. Hope this helps.

When "cold", my Phillips cdc935 skips on the first track, only, of many of my cds. After warming up that is no longer a problem and successive cds, including the first one played, do not skip.


Hi,
Open CDC-935 player and clean sled section (that moves optical lens left-right) as it seems dusty and causing skipping of cd tracks.

HK AVR25 MKII goes on and off numerous times on cold power up


The relay on the PWR SUPPLY board clicks once when the PWR switch is turned on then 2 to 5 sec. later it clicks again and 'off' it goes.
The small transformer ( standby power) on the board appears to be leaking crud (looks like wood glue) all along one edge.
Can I bypass this relay to see if the power transformer is 'ok'?

Starting system cold, no sound for 2-3 minutes


Its not worth having it looked at. $100.00 for a new 400.00 unit? My unit is doing the same thing. Turn it on and 2 to 5 minutes later it may come on. Change to video 3 4 5 etc it stop again. Only works with a cold start. Something in the unit has failed and is heat related. My original Kenwood 20/20 recevier still works. Must be 40 years old. New products just last 5 to ten years max if your lucky.
