Cooling method for GTP-750

Hi, I just came across this post and I just got a GTP-750 and I too notice that it runs extremely warm when left on for a while. And I am suprised that there are no cooling vents OR a fan used...right now I have the top cover open about a 1/4th of the way just to let some circulation happen.

What do you have for a cooling method and the rectifier info would be appreciated in case I need repair on this unit - mine works great still and I am hoping to not have to go through any repair anytime soon due to overheating!

Please email me at beenaice@yahoo.com. Thanks!

Well ehy do you not put in 2 fans. 1 on the left and 1 on the right. Make the vents and build it in. You can use the standard size PC cooling fan. Just look for a 12 or 15 V supply and make sure to regulate it with an LA7812 Transistor, Very easy circuit. Will give you one if needed.

    Hi, there is no big need for all that trouble. Why put in 2 PC fans if you could change you Heat sink. You need to look at the design of the amp and how it was made to run. Then look at your setup and see if this matches. If you are running more speakers or your load is more or less on that particular output then you should remember that you are not running the amp as it intended design.

    You can how ever change the amp to suit your needs.

    To cool it down first change your heat sink. Then ad a single fan on the top or back of the heat sink. make sure that you turn the fan around to create a vacuum. This will draw the hot air out and cool air in. Putting the fan at the back will be better as you will create air flow over and through the heat sink.

    Now: To run the fan yes you need a supply. between 13-18VDC
    Please do not use a LA7812 as this is a negative regulator. Use the LA7912. Make sure you use your power supply earth and NOT the amp's earth as they are 95% of the times Isolated.

    Hope you come right

One speaker channel not working


Hello
You haven't given any details about your Denon amp, such as Model number. Yet I posts this solution. Check the speaker of the defective channel, by using a multimeter. Check the wire that connects to that speaker from amp. If both are Ok, the defect is with the amp itself. Just check whethere 'balance' control of the amp is set to extreme left or right. If it seems to be at one extreme end, make adjust it to the center position.
If all are OK and still you do not get any sound from one channel, the set need repair. OK.

Hello, My ADCOM GTP-870 HD has recently started cutting signal randomly. I'll watching a movie and all of a sudden I hear a click, and no sound or picture and the front panel had no lights . The power...


Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.


Check for loose speaker connections as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

My Adcom GTP 760 Preamp/Processor produces a hum that is affected by the volume control. I think it must be a bad capacitor in the power supply but would like your opinion. I do not have a tech manual...


This is not likely a power supply problem, but is isolated before the pre-amp stage. This can be a defective IC in the preamp stage as well.

Adcom schematics are not generally available, but you may be able to isolate the problem with a little experimentation. Try to run a signal through to see if you can get the signal as well.

Please update this with your results.

Thanks,
Dan

I would not recomend disconnecting the fans. They might be running to keep a certain heat sensitive (and perhaps expensive) part cool. However it could be the case that the fan speed control circuit has developed a fault, therefore the fans are running too fast.

The filter capacitors are probably going bad is the likely cause.

It may also be bypass capacitor in the preamp section.

Noting whether the hum volume varies with the setting of the volume control would aid troubleshooters.

One might be able to isolate the bad component with freeze mist/circuit cooler.

No output in Right channel on my Adcom preamp GTP-450


Hi...
Have you tried swapping speakers to see if the trouble moves to the other speaker?
It could be a dirty selector switch .

It could be a broken solder contact on the input or output RCA jacks

GEM SOUND PA-750 POWER AMP


Hello plumer,

Locate a small slide switch at the back panel of your amp.
3 terminal and if you've snapped one of the wire, you'll see where the wire goes. But if it is 2 wire and using a ribbon type, follow the arrangement of the wire. No harm to the amp if you make a mistake. if bridge, all power will be shifted ti the left channel.

Good luck,

Fan


The hum is power line hum ( 60 cycle ) . It may be that when the amp gets warm that something in the case wants to vibrate to the 60 cycle hum.

I have amps that hum like that and theyre fine.

Depending on the design of the amp, the cooling fan may not go on till it gets really warm in the amp. Some run all the time like the Ashly I just fixed

No remote found


If pushing the power button does nothing, the unit is probably in "protect mode". This means there is an internal problem and will require professional service.
