Question about Amplifiers & Preamps

1 Answer

Thanks I am savy but can not find the service manual or schematics for this unit. If the output transistors have shorted to ground might it cause this efect do you think? I was thinking of just replacing them and see where i go from there. Not an easy set to work on that is for sure.

    Robotek. I could not find any service manual or scematic for this unit. Would you be able to provide some test points for me to check to determine the problem?

Samson SX1200 - Protect light on. No blown output transistors.


Have you checked the power supply section? Also look out for any IC's in the amp stages. They can go causing that kind of fault.

Schematic drawing of Adcom GFA-5300/how to check driver circuits


The driver circuits should be just before the outputs in the circuitry. The easiest way to check this circuit is to remove the outputs and turn on the unit. Measure each of the transistor pads relativce to ground for DC voltage. You should see the following: B+,0.6V (or 1.1V), and 0V on one transistor and negative values on its compliment. If you have questions, measure the pads and post the measurements here. In some cases the output transistor needs to be in place to get the values above, so if yours don't measure that way, just post what you get and we'll continue from there.

I have a CS1000X . Channel B has the DDT light engaging at relatively low input signals. The B channel has reciently been subjected to a shorted output cable. My guess is that one or more of the output...


The unit is only partially smoked. There is a problem in the final output stage, not enough to shut it down completely, but close. The DDT light indicates that the amp is outputing full power. I suspect that there is a partial short that is presenting itself as a low impedence load to the output amp section. This is causing the amp to work really hard and thus the DDT light kicking in. I think you will find 1 transistor shorted or partially so. Replace ALL of the output transistors for that side and that should resolve the problem. Check the driver transistor pair as well. It is important to replace all of the transistors on that side, even if some check OK with a checker.

Channel 2 Distorted/Clip light comes on


It sounds like the final amplification section is OK now. I'd be looking for a noisy transistor or transistor pair at the "front end" of the unit. There may also be a shorted coupling cap between the stages. If you can Email me the schematics, I can provide more details.

Looking for circuit schematic for a Teac AG-7D. There's no visible burning on the board, no blown fuses, the power light comes on, it just won't make a noise any more.


This unit has detected a problem in the output section and the protection circuit is preventing the output relay from turning on. In most cases this is due to shorted output transistors which will need to be replaced. If you have a multimeter, set it to read DC volts and measure the voltage on the three legs of one of the output transistors. You should read .6V, 40V or so and 0.0. I suspect that you will read 40V on two fo the three legs. If so, that is your problem. Please note that the actual reading for the higher voltage may be something other than 40. I don't have the service manual for this model, so I don't know the exact voltage. It will be anywhere from 35V-75V depending upon the actual design and output transistors.

I am not aware of the availability of schematics for this unit, but any shop that works on audio gear should be able to repair this without them.

Sony Model No STR-DE475 blinks "PROTECT" even with no speakers


With all speaker wires disconnected and still showing the protect message, the short is internal. This is a rather common failure for these units. The output transistors are shorted themselves. These are relatively simple to replace and run about $15 each. Any service shop that repairs audio can fix this easily. Usually, once the outputs are replaced, you can get many additional years of service from the unit. Yes, it is worth it (in my opinion).

Power On + red LED turns on + but final relay (click) don't come so no sound


Your audio output transistors are shorted and your unit is staying in "protect " mode to protect your speakers from 40 to 60 volts that is being sent at them from the shorted outputs. If you can use a meter you won't need the schematic MOST likely because the outputs are USUALLY the only parts that short out. The output transistors( or chip ) are mounted to the large, finned heatsink. The #'s on the transistors start with "2SA-" and "2SC-" followed by numbers. There are two output transistors per channel. If your unit uses an IC for audio output then the # on the IC will be "STK-" followed by numbers. These parts are available from tritronicsinc.com. Good Luck!

Pioneer vsx-9900s


Hey man,... no worries.

Were any fuses blown? Check this first and foremost before you do anything else. If there were blown fuses, you then (if you are familiar with how), need to check the output stages for shorts. NOT generally to ground as you have suggested.... but more between the center and outside pins (collector emitter short we are looking for here) To check the output transistors properly, you need to unsolder leg and check each of the output transistors junctions base emitter, and base collector, and also collector emitter for any leakage. Once you find the offending channel(normally there is only one), you need to then carefully check the driver transistors also. Pay attention to low value resistors about the output stages, small signal and zener diodes and if they are there, any power diodes. If you are unsure of the condition of a part, then replace it to be sure :)

Hit me back and let me know how you go.

Audio Amplifier JVC Model A-GX3


If the service manual is not available on the JVC websites then you should just Google search "JVC A-GX3 service manual" There are many websites that archive manuals. You'll probably have to pay for a copy. Why can't you disassemble the unit and see the output transistor numbers first? More importantly how do you know this is the fault?
