The "amp error" indicates an internal amp failure. If the receiver does not play any sound at all then the internal amp is most likely bad. Try unplugging everything from it first and see if it will power up ok then on its own. If it does then start plugging speaker wires and cables back in one by one untill the error comes up again.

Why is my RCA STAV-3860 not coming on?

It sounds like the unit is getting power but is going into standby mode due to an internal fault. Sadly, newer receivers these days are not designed to be repaired but replaced!

Rca receiver overload message

Power the unit off , Disconnect all the speakers ,power the unit back on and check to see if you get the same message, if so one or all of your speakers could be bad. This message appears when there is too much load on the output IC's,generally causes shutdown. Also try blowing the system out with canned air, And removing anything that prevents the unit from getting enough ventilation.

I was given an ''Alpine 3501'' car amplifier with all the wires cut off. I would like to know what wires are for what so I can see if it still works. Thanks in advance for any help, Chris J.

red = power
black= ground
blue= ignition, for testing tie red and blue together

rca in = comes from your after market deck, or line converter if using facory head unit

rca out = if you are using more that one amp and want to hoook them up in series
