    Hi - exactly the same. Opened up and found 1 of the large capacitors had loose joints but after resoldering, problem still there. After about 1 - 2 hrs it does come on but then only works on a low level. Clips and distorts. Beautiful amp ....when it used to work.

Both units have a problem with the output section. In case 1, the outputs are likely to be shorted. In case 2, the outputs are open. The low level and distortion come from you driving the speakers with the driver section of the amp. Both units will need to see a service provider.

You likely have damaged one side of the amplifier. SOME amps can stand to be shorted, but many will pop one or more transistors. Time for service in the shop I am afraid.

C320 only red light goes on, doesn't switch to green and speakers start humming. None of functions work.

NAD C270 amp won't switch from red power/protection to green.


The AH may denote "slo-blo" style as opposed to Fast-acting
A fast-acting fuse will look like a single strand of wire ( maybe wiggly looking) ..A Slo-blo will have an element in it and a spring

HELP PLEASE. NAD 370 JUST DIED...


This could be as simple as a bad connection at the voltage regulator IC or blown output transistors. If you have a multimeter and some experience with electronics repair, this should be fairly straightforward.

Let me know and I'll try to walk you throught the repair.

NAD C370 Right channel distortion


Sounds like you have lost the power amp transistor(s) or IC for this channel.

Won't stay on even in standby


The voltages are wrong. You should see (0.0, +/-0.6, and B+/B-) on the 3 pins. The driver section has a problem. Check the driver stage for shorted transistors or open resistors.

Power light switches to red.


I suggest rechecking the speaker wiring in case there is a small "whisker" of wire touching either the case or adjacent terminal, also check the speaker end of the wires for same. Do you have a pet? I have seen wires chewed partly through by cats (& rabbits)! See the information from the manual below: http://207.228.230.231/manual/NAD-C370.pdf
