Carver M-400a schematic

Hello,
I'm looking for a schematic of the Carver M-400a power amp  that's relatively affordable.  So far I found only one, and that costs $ 75.  Isn't there anything less expensive available, or maybe even a free download?
Thanks,
Andor

You are not likely to find any Carver stuff for short money. What is the problem you are trying to solve? Maybe you don't need a schematic.

Without buying, borrowing or begging a copy of

Another excellent source for sound, communications, navigation, video parking... hoo-haw (et al)... is CRUTCHFIELD.

They have all the related fitment hardware... electrical (plug) interface and EXPERTISE to afford you the optimally PROFESSIONAL GRADE installation.. that can give your years of reliable service... and sell on with confidence...

Free queries entertained... (live or chat).

(very cool).

Is it normal for carver power amps to have a slight hum? I have a carver-55x


Hum can come from a jillion different places. Is this hum coming from the unit with no speakers connected, or is it heard through the speakers? What sources are being used? What cables? Are thereany common sources of interference near? Troubleshooting is difficult without much information.

My Carver M-1.5t is emitting a rapid pulsing sound on both speakers -- low but annoying. I bought it new in around 1983. Is it fixable?


this could be related to the power supply it is the
magnetic field variety that has a thyristor controlling its input check if the voltage supply to the amp outputs is varying when the pulsing is heard. if so
the control curcuit could be at fault.

is that resistor in the line to q12 ? if so it should be in the spec sheet for that device. if you don't have the spec sheet then let me know what q12 part number is.

I have a carver M 1.5 amp rt. channel is out.


Carver designs in general are not easy to repair. I would recommend that you send this unit into a Carver authorized service center. The likely problem is the output transistors, but the driver circuits and predrivers are not simple designs and if there is a problem there, it could effect the outputs. Tracing this will require equipment and schematics that I don't believe are available on the net.

Best amps for bose 901


You need an amplifier with at least 200 wpc to get the most out of your BOSE. Look into getting a NAD, ADCOM or CARVER amplifier. I prefer CARVER myself. I am running a CARVER M-500T(251 wpc) on my 901's and they sound incredible.

Carver Sound Problems


your going to need this place to download the remedy's for your system http://www.euras.com/repair_tips_1/CARVER/AV505/AV505_CARVER.htm

if it is not working then there is another serious problem , and it could be the amp IC or the volume IC but tests will need to be done to determine what is causing the failure , but it does sound like amp IC as a suspect since the rear were not even working , did the volume seem different when turning it up or down before the center quit or after the center quit?

Carver tfm-35x power amp light replacement


I just picked up the same amp, a Carver TFM-35x, with the same problem, the bulbs that light up the meters are burnt out. They aren't hard to replace, but I didn't know what bulb to use. I found out today that you need to use 12 volt, .15 amp bulbs (150 milliamp). And it needs to be an axial-type bulb.
