Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Older Peavey PA Head XR600C. Problem with 400BH Board the B is like 0v unplug B and I have the voltages for the /- 16Volts. Plug in the B ( -52V) and nothing. Replaced all 4 6A2 diodes, caps test good, resistors test ok. 2 resisters fried, they were the 47 Ohm FP's. replaced those, tried new transformer. Disconnected the audio out board for isolation and the mixer section of the board. Need Help Thank you.

    I have the service manual...these are FREE from Peavey. I feel I was ripped off by this outfit and I am filing a complaint with Peavey. All resistors were replaced

  • Steve Griffith Jun 13, 2008

    the two resistors that were fried R58 and R59, 47 Ohm Flame proofs. I replaced some of t he 2K 5W, replaced the .1 Ohm 10 Watt, (2) replaced all the .33 Ohm 10 watt, the 1K 5 watts, and the 5.6 Ohm 5 watt. When I plug in the red/red-yellow/red, it goes down to 0 volts. I have it plugged in to a 100 watt light bulb to save the fuse.
    the lamp glows brightly. Now, when I unplug that secondary from the 400BH, and just leave the 15 volt supply on (orange/or-wh, orange works fine.
    Replaced the Diodes CR16,17,18,19.eplaced the Two Zeners. all the 2K 5W resistors test good out of the circuit.

If you need a circuit for the PA board... get it from here

I would start by checking with a multimeter for shorts in driver transistors Q2 and 12

The output stage may be suspect for a driver to have failed. I would disconnect(emmitter and collector) of each output transistor for leakage and shorts in all directions (swap meter leads +ve and -ve). You can often tell at a glance that there IS a short in the output stage, by checking collector emitter with everything still connected. You cannot, however tell if there is leakage that may kill any repair work that you are doing.

Good work on the lamp. I use one in line with the mains socket on my test bench. I use a 40 watt build though.Have seen some smoke with higher wattages. I also use a variac to soft start the unit and do some DC checks mostly for symmetry in output stages with about 40-70 v into the 240 volt mains socket.

Let me know if you find any shorted transpistanators :)

    Oh, and here in case you need it here is a quick tutorial in checking transistors that may help you with fault finding the drive and output transistors

I will look this up to confirm, but these units are famous for having a 2K 5W resistor open up. This should be a square ceramic resistor. I'm not at the shop at the moment, but I'll look it up when I get back and try to give you more details. These units are counter-intuitive.

Stay tuned...

    Forgot to ask... Which resistors were fried? Do you have the circuit designations?



    Thanks,

I have a Peavey XR-600 PA Head, I would like to know if and how can I connect a MX 200 Dual Reverb Effects Processor to the PA Head?


If it has a effects loop output and input on the p.a. head and a in and out on the reverb effects processor, then yes you can, just run the effects loop output signal into the input on your reverb processor, out of the output back into the input effects loop on the p.a. head, kinda like you would a effects pedal thru the effects loop of a guitar amplifier. hope this helps!

Ha3500 hartke sound goes off with a click after 5 seconds .what is causing the problem


Sounds like the loudspeaker relay switch is disconnecting the spkr.
i) Check heat sensor on heatsink has good connection to PA board. Dust on h'sink/fan usually needs vacuuming off!
ii) Check voltage on the amplifier output resistor R334 is at 0v (referenced to chassis) - if this voltage is raised,the amp stage is faulty.
Otherwise the fault lies in the speaker protection stage (IC301).

I have two peavy xr 600b i want to daisy chain them so i can use one for the monitors how do i do that?


you will need 2 y patch cables 1/4in to make this happen, they need to be about 3 ft long, set one head on top of the other...then use a y patch cable and plug it into the main output on both heads, then plug it into the graphic input on the head you want to use for the mains....then take a y cable and plug it into the monitor output on both heads...then plug it into the graphic input of the other head, this one will run the monitors.

How do i use the effects loop on peavey xr 600b?


plug the effects out into the input of your reverb/echo unit, plug the out put of the processor into an unused channel in the mixer, do NOT turn up the effects in that channel, to hear the effects in the main use the main level, to hear effects in the monitor use the monitor level. you must turn up the the effect send in the channel you want to hear the effects on and also the effects master.

Peavey SP3 (older model) Can not get any sound thru horn.


They have a "soundgard" protection network that uses a polyfuse and an automotive lamp. Open the unit and check the circuitry. Both the polyfuse and he lamp may be blown. Do ohmmeter check of these, otherwise the horn is blown.

Barring an entire head being available, what specific parts do you require. Most are available from generic suppliers or from Peavey directly. Can you be a bit more specific about what you need?
