    If you have the unit disassembled and have a voltmeter test on the Caps. then just trace along the wiring or traces; to the next part. This is usually a large power resistor.

I would say it is the protection circuits.

You will need the circuit diagram to follow as it will be a bad diode.

If you have power at all caps, you should be having power on +/- of power transistors. can you check that? if power is available on all power xtors then you must be experiencing protection mode only.

No power to amp


You probably have a bad channel or you could try unpluging the amp for 2 minutes and plug it in again to let it reset.

Pioneer SA100 integrated - low, distorted output


At this point, I would be looking at the main power suply for the final output stage. You may be attempting to drive the output with the driver section rather than the final amp stage. The center pin of the output transistors should have B+/B- on them. Measure that to ground and report the value here.

A small 2.5 amp fuse keeps blowing. It is located at the back of the unit just after the ac inlet


When a fuse blows suspect an overload in the power supply or power amp section.
For culprits in the power supply check the transformer, large capacitors, rectifier, voltage control semi-conductors, diodes.
In the amp section any semi-conductor on the heat-sink.

Semi-conductors - transistors and IC's are the biggest cause of fuse blowing. They become short-circuit acting like a piece of wire!
Because of this transistors and diodes are easy to spot with an Ohm Meter, as it will be like you have just touched the probes together.
Very often they have holes, or damage, or have burnt up with this kind of fault.
If it is a fault on the main amp section, check your speaker wiring as the + & - wires could have touched to cause it.

I need an owner's manuel for a Pioneer stereo power amp SPEC-4. I have a part # ARB-235. I think this amp is a product of the 1970's. Where would I be able to get my hands on the operating instructions?...


You can register with hifiengine.com andfind it and the service manual.

There really isn't a lot to a power amp to be operated. This one differs from most in that it has an input level control and VU meters.

From http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.incomesixdigits.com/spec4/spec4a.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.incomesixdigits.com/spec4/&usg=__WbFLwPqHXjFHe_P2BCKyTT9CxQY=&h=652&w=1156&sz=526&hl=en&start=2&um=1&itbs=1&tbnid=5SVKh2leUGWXmM:&tbnh=85&tbnw=150&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dpioneer%2Bspec%2B4%26hl%3Den%26rlz%3D1R2ADFA_enUS360%26sa%3DX%26um%3D1


Dynamic 150 + 150 Watts Power Output, Generous High-power Design
The Spec-4 employs DC construction which excludes capacitors from the NFB circuits and uses a dual transistor differential amplifier with a current mirror circuit in the 1st stage. This provides a stable operation and also high gain over a wide frequency range. The pre-driver stage is a class A amplifier circuit with a regulated current circuit for the load. This makes for high-gain amplification with superior linearity. Furthermore, there is an overdrive limiter and power limiter circuit which is designed to protect the power transistors and make for added reliability.
The power stage employs a 3-stage Darlington pure complementary parallel SEPP circuit.
The SPEC-4 delivers Continuous Power Output of 150 watts per channel, min. RMS, at 8 ohms from 20 Hertz to 20,000 Hertz with no more than 0.01% total harmonic distortion.

Completely Independent and Perfectly Stable Left / Right Power Supplies
The mighty power supplies are completely separated for the left and right channels. Also, each channel is provided with two 22,000uF large-capacity electrolytic capacitors and large transistors with a superior regulation. They achieve outstanding channel separation and a clear, powerful reproduced sound, in addition to the wide frequency response. There is a built-in surge killer circuit to suppress inrush currents from the power transformers and high currents which charge the electrolytic capacitors. This circuit ensures that none of the parts are affected by these adverse currents.
Protective Circuits Composed of Fast-response Relays and Electronic Circuits
Each channel is protected by a DC and over current detection relay circuit. In the event of the speaker terminal shorting due to poor connections or when DC current is generated in the output, the output circuit is immediately disengaged and the speakers and transistors are safeguarded against any possible damage. The protective circuits also function as muting circuits when the power switch is turned on and off.
Peak Level Meters with Outstanding Waveform Response
This power amplifier incorporates logarithmic compression peak meters with a wide scale (-40 -+3dB). With 8-ohm speakers, they allow the output to be read out from 0.01W to 300W. Moreover, the meters feature a fast response for peak signal indication. In addition to the peak output reading, it is easy to interpret the dynamic margin with respect to the SPEC-4’s clipping level.
Input Level Controls with dB Calibration
The SPEC-4 is equipped with input level controls with direct readout attenuation values (-dB). These can be used to continuously adjust the input levels for each channel in accordance with the rated output voltage of the preamplifier. In this way, the SPEC-4 can perform the proper gain control according to the preamplifier’s output level. The preamplifier will thus be used in the condition possible for the best S-N ratio and distortion characteristics.
Stylishly Professional Front Panel Design
Just as you would expect from a sophisticated system, the SPEC-4’s front panel is professionally designed with the large level meters in the center. Also. The front panel’s dimensions allow the model to be mounted in an EIA standard rack, just like real professional-use amplifiers.

Amplifier blows 0.6amp fuse after 2-3hrs, is this a common problem?


Not really they generally blow as soon as power is applied! For something to blow it after hours, might be caused by something getting hot and taking it's time to do so! Or perhaps a leaky capacitor? One of the big ones I would guess!

Pioneer power amp m-770 keeps blowing the 6.3 amp fuse what could be wrong?


Suspect an overload in the power supply or audio output stage.
Power supply culprits include transformer, the big capacitors, diodes, bridge rectifier, voltage regulator etc.
Audio culprits are anything on the heat sink(s).
Look for burnt, damaged parts too, anything running very hot!
Follow the circuit from the fuse see where it takes you too start.

Pioneer 800w mono issue


It can be many things it possible the amp cannot handle the 4 ohm load and simply goes into power protection mode. Also make sure your using the correct gage wire to run power from your battery to the amp to thin and it wont have enough power to perform.

Pioneer VSX-516-S/K amplifier - loss of sound in speakers


This sounds like the amp has a system memory problem. The chips inside your amp that deal with it might be faulty or they loose the information due to a power loss, often caused by memory retention capacitors.
You can tell that to the repair man and see what he says, but personal I would go to another, try contacting Pioneer for a recommended engineer in your area.
