SOURCE: Denon PMA 520 fuse blown

Check that you are replacing the fuse with the correct type first. Fuses marked with a T following the rating are "slo blo" fuses and if a fast blow is used instead, it will fail again at turn on. Otherwise, the amp will have a fault occurring, probably in the output stages. You should refer this type of fault to a repair guy that knows HiFi. as this sort of repair needs an experienced touch.

SOURCE: technics su g70 amp problem also?

it doesn't sound like it. but maybe. it would be the input section of your amp that blew if it did go. try replacing your speaker wire first, if that doesn't work then your volume knob(if the volume is analogue) may need to be replaced. if that doesn't work. then you may have blown the amp. what source are you testing with?(cdplayer, dvd player, etc.) and what inputs are you using? (analogue, digital optical, digital coax)

Crate bx-100 bass amp powers up but no sound


I recommend to check your speaker with something else before anything else. Sometimes they rattle when the voice coil gets hot and warps but, sometimes the blow out completely and make no sound at all.

Where is the serial number on a crate amplifier


Real basic owners manual is here:
http://www.crateamps.com/pdf/manuals/CA6110DG_OM.pdf

Look at the chassis, or pull a part number off the original speaker to match speaker and back cross reference to the amp versions that used it. The OM is at least good enough with the block diagram to allow it to be serviced easily enough.

Volume fading in and out


If you play this loud the amplifier MAY be going into a thermal pprotection area. It would be about as loud as a typical boombox when at safe levels.

If you need louder than that, you need a bigger unit.

If the volume always is strong after letting it rest and cool and then fades as you drive it hard, this is the probable cause.

One speaker of my MG100DFX makes loud noise similar to a guitar disconnect. When that speaker is disconnected, noise stops. What is the suspected problem?


NEVER disconnect a speaker with the power on the amplifier !!!!!! Good way to blow the amplifier.

If the speaker rattles while you are sending audio through it, it is likely damaged. It should be inspected as there are several failure modes, some of which as hazardous to your amplifier.

First test is to gently move the cone and listen for any rubbing of the voice coil. If you hear rubbing, then the speaker needs replacing OR re-coning.

Sometimes the magnet breaks off the back of the speaker.

Investigate this before further use.

Dirty high switch on a Crate practice amp


NEVER use switch cleaner such as DeOxit on pots !!!!!

I have used CRC226 available at Home Depot electrical dept.

I SUSPECT that the resistance element in that pot is cracked. This is common if the knob sustained a hit. Replacing the pot is the only cure if the element is cracked.

Reviewing the schematic, ALL audio passes through the wiper on the HIGH tone pots. If the wiper is intermittent, so will be the sound.

If your unit is solid state amp, the pot looks like a 10K ohm LINEAR taper.
If you have a tube type, then the pot is a 250K ohm LINEAR.

Note that the other tone pots in the units are AUDIO tapers, but the high is a linear taper.

Get repair parts from either DigiKey.com or Mouser.com

I have the all tube Crate TV-120. When I turn it on it fires up fine. When I switch the standby on I get a loud whistle sound and can hear a humming from the speakers. I can also get a low guitar volume...


This is a guess: I suspect the bypass switch on that effects loop jack is causing a problem. These jacks cause a lot of problems. The switch passes the signal through if there is no plug for an effects in the jack.

You can SOMETIMES tighten up the contact to restore the jack. You have to disassemble teh unit to get at it of course.

you may be using an equalizer? try to pop-up the volume with all tone controls in flat mode. see if it still cuts off. if this is the first time youencounter this then something must be wroing with either your speakers or your amp. unless your ventilation is not good enoughg, you can also try placing a blower on top of your unit to cool it down
