    also if the thermal protection circiut has tripped does it reset itself or do you have to reset it?if so,how

    Ok, doesn't seem to be the fuse. Was able to pop it out (it was the fuse cover I was having difficulty with... would not open until I used enough force I was sure I would break it!)It had a spare fuse, popped that in and no dice. Bought a new fuse today, again, no dice.

    I've opened the system up, just to take a look, (I'm a computer hardware tech... so I know just enough to be dangerous with electronics :)and I find no loose connections, nothing visibly 'fried', and remarkably little dust. I blew out some dust from the fans and around a couple of contacts.. .but nothing significant.

    I'm beginning to believe that it may be the thermal protect circuit/switch. I'm thinking the system was left on and the fan may have been blocked causing the switch to trip... Perhaps over and over until the switch died? Just a thought.

    I started surfing looking for repair schematics for this system and found only one site, bought the archived file for $15 AND ... of course ... it craps out on the download (several times) AND... of course ... won't refund the cash. :)

    I know I'm asking you to fly blind here... but could you help me identify where the thermal protection switch/circuit may be? I dosen't seem to be that hard to replace ... yea yea... I DO understand use epoxy/screws and do not solder (or use needlenose plier as a heat sink) Like I said, I know enough to be dangerous :)

    Or perhaps you could give another suggestion as to why it won't power on?

You could remove the cover and find the fuse and replace it with the same voltage and current rating.
Make sure you unplug the device before start working on it.

    It could be just snap in, if you use a small flat screwdrivers and pull gently to remove it.

  • Jaime Hernandez Jun 12, 2008

    If the fuse is good, the thermal protection is engaged. If that is the case there might be something else wrong with your device, it could have a defective amplifier IC or transistor.

    If this device is less then 2 years old, I would suggest to call the manufacturers and ask them to fix it for you under warranty.

How do I get the power to work?

Where do you connect the power if mains fed 220volt or 110volt if so try a test lamp where you plug the power in. Some periferal sets only works as a set and the power of the turntable is not mains but a lower D.C. voltage normally 12 volts. As you got another unit I suspect the supply. Ask the company that you purchased it from (If the power is something else than your mains supply) to just check your amplifier. To try to imagine the problem without the units is difficult to give help but this is all that it can be

Not necessarily sometimes the transformer go South but TEST the fuse with a multitester and make sure it is intact. If it stays dead then give it burial except you know of somebody that tinker with it

Yes, use balanced cable to the PA system and use a DI at the computer end.

The DI is known as a "direct box" or "direct input" and converts the UNBALANCED computer output to balanced to send toe the PA system.

You'll need an interface for your computer. An interface takes your microphone or mixer signal and transfers it via usb or firewire to the computer so the software recognizes the signal. There are many available and most come with software.

Try to find an interface that will include full-version software, not a demo. Some interfaces have issues with Vista, just check with your local store of choice to make sure it will work. One of my favorites is the Tapco Link.USB which includes a full-version of software with a pretty simple interface.

Good luck!
