I think the originals may have been IR21844S. I've been using the IRS21844S and they have worked well.

The un-connected pads lift relatively easily on these boards. If you want to avoid lifting those pads and you have a soldering iron with a temperature control, use ChipQuik solder alloy to remove the ICs. Set the iron to ~450F as a starting point. Increase the temperature slightly if necessary.

If the amp has vertically mounted outputs, be careful when you reinstall them. The holes typically have a fair amount of slack. If the transistor isn't positioned correctly when it's soldered in, it will be too far from the sink and will not be able to mate (thermally) to the sink (the clamps aren't strong enough. If they are too close to the sink, they will rip the insulators when you slide the board back into the sink.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

The volume jumps up and down when i turn the volume up .also the balance tuns completely left on its own

Years ago the volume and balance on amps were on seperate circuits. But these days they are on one. It sounds like this problem is all down to an IC in the pre-amp stage. If you trace the connection from the volume control to the PC board you will find this chip. If you come accross more than one, put the code numbers into Google and see what they do. If you see one the at deals with volume and balance, you have got the culprit!

Amp keeps flashing from red to green

yes you have a internal fault of the amp. the circuit that puts it into safe mode is bad and that is a very small chip on the board know as a op amp. needs to be repaired.

Need a schematic to follow circuits on kx800.2 amp. A 10 ohm resister 1/4W was smoked and need to trace the problem. This circuit area is just after the pre-amp board socket.

Hi! ok R64 is a 220 ω resistor & Q22 is a BD140 transistor, these 2 components are the final outputs for the -15V rail which feeds the pre-amp board. There are two scenarios here, firstly Q22 may have died of natural causes which has killed R64 or something has gone short on the pre-amp board which has taken both components out as a result. i would suggest replacing the two cooked components & if the amp then works ok it will be an easy repair, however if they go again then an investigation using an ohm meter will be needed on the pre-amp board to check for shorts on all any of the i.c's. let me know how you get on, if I can be of further assistance just ask!. Regards, acbva.

WD3200JS Electrical failure? No spinning, overheating of board

Hi Indro,

HEat issues like that can be caused either by a failure on the PCB or internally. Remove the PCB board and inspect it, if it's an issue I have seen occasionally you will have a hard time removing the PCB as it will have blown out a chip near the contact point for the drive and will be somewhat fused to the padding between the PCB and the drive chassis.

If this is the case a new board runs about 50% chance of fixing the issue, try finding one on eBay and replacing it. If that fails or if there's no noticable failure on the PCB, chances are the failure is internal and you will need the help of a professional facility with a clean room to get your files back. If this is the case and you don't mind spending a few bucks for the file, respond with your location(Country, State and City) and I will refer you to a nearby facility that has the appropriate equipment to assist you.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Output Chip blown, need help!

Why do you think the output chip is blown? This is NOT a user serviceable part. One must posess several uncommon tools, and must know what the output chip looks like.

There IS a chance that the radio is in SELF PROTECT MODE becausea speaker in the car is causing a direct short, or even possibly VERY HIGH, or VERY LOW resistance.

One at a time Disconnect speakers while the radio has a CD or station tuned in. If you disconnect the "blown speaker" the remaining speakers left connected should start to play.

They may be for a different model with different features. many of these circuit boards are in many different models by many different manufacturers. If you want more info on the board find the serial number and the manufacturer on it and type it into google or similar - you might get lucky if it is a common board. If the set works fine then tie the loose wires out of the way, put the cover back on and watch the front. hope this helps :)
