SOURCE: Cambridge Audio Azur 340A amplifier,no sound

Start with the basics first. 1. With the amp on, in each imput socket plug a dual end phono cable in and touch the right and left plugs with your finger. You should get a buzz on each speaker. No buzz and the channel at that terminal is not working. If none of the terminals buzz. Then the amp is dead.
If some buzz and others not you have a pre-amp problem.
2: Amp Dead. Could be A power supply. B main pre-amp. C Power Amp.
The power supply check for a fuse.
The main pre-amp will only effect both channels if an IC controls both.
The Power Amp will again only loose both channels generally if it is an IC. It will be attached to a big heat sink and have lots of pins comming from it.
If it uses transistors for the main amp, you can check these with an Ohm meter. With the power off place the leads on each terminal of each transistor. If the meter goes fully over (like when you touch the leads together) each way it has shorted.
The thing to remember when repairing stereo amps. Is that the amp is two identical amps joined together. So what happens one side will happen on the other. If both channels don't work look for something that is common to both.
Good luck
PS never heard of 'cliperd'.

Cambridge azur 650R shows "PROTECT" after Volume more than 1/4, protection-relay works, loudspeakers&cable are o.k, WHY?/Solution (relay broken)?

What ohm rating does the receiver have and what ohm speakers are you connecting. If the receiver is rated for 8 ohm speakers and you are connecting 4 ohm speakers, you are overdriving the amplifier. This will cause the protection to trip. Also make sure your speakers polarity are matched. If they are out of phase this may also cause a problem.

Cambridge Audio Azur 640R AV Recorder won't switch off

Sounds like the unit is victim of a power surge. The power control board is probably damaged. You will be better off replacing the amp as having it repaired will cost more than replacing it.

"SW" stands for SubWoofer.

Lights when the Front Left and Right speaker outputs have been set to different levels in the OSD, i.e. a balance adjustment has been made.

You can look at the relative levels of all channels as described on Page 14.

Very loud noise coming from amp as soon as amp is turned on..noise will not fluctuate with the volume..noise stays constant?

This will be the large Electrolytic Capacitors in the Power Supply. You can't miss them. They will over 4700uf or around that in value. Replace them all, even if only one has gone. I think what your hearing is the 50/HZ hum from the mains getting in.

Protection overload and the system shuts off

Reasons: 1. Short in the wire, speaker, or amplifier 2. Amplifier malfunction 3. Overload of the amplifier 4. Overload of the speaker
Listening to audio at loud levels requires more power obviously. But the speakers and amplifier may not be rated or capable to handle it due to age or design.

Protection overload and the system shuts off

check your speaker wires for short, try to turn it on without speakers connected, if all connections and speakers seem ok the problem is internal witch can go from blown power supply to shorted output devices and everything in between , and as always look for repair shop in your area, do not attempt to do it yourself, fire hazard and electric shock are the things we all want to avoid ;)
