Hi,

A couple of things to check:
1. check the speakers;
2. since one channel is working, with no signal input and volume down, compare DC voltages of the left and right channels using the operational channel as basis;
3. doubt if problem involves power supply since as you posted the other half is working.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I know these amps well. The power envelope circuit has probably failed as well.

    I also change out any bd139 transistors for 2sd669 also, as the bd transistors often caused them to self destruct. I also reccommend replacing all the driver transistors as well as the output, and checking EVERY transistor in the DC coupled chain. Any transistor in the output stage could be causing it to malfunction. you also need to setup the bias correctly after any work to the output stages.

    can you tell me what parts you have replaced?

  • Graeme Ross
    Graeme Ross Jun 19, 2008

    The power envelope circuit supplies a "boost" voltage to the output stages. When output transistors fail, these transistors also go shorted, usually apparant by strange differing voltages on the collectors ot the outputs. I strongly reccommend that you softstart the amp with a variac if you have one at about 30% mains voltage to allow you to fault find without blowing fuses or damaging the new parts you have just fitted.

    OH, use a 2sb649 for the complementary transistor to the 2sd669. Change the bias control transistor(if its a bd139) mounted to the heatsink as well.

    How did you go with the amp repairs?

I have a DTR 7.1 Integra receiver and it goes into protect mode when turned on. Is this something that can be fixed by myself or does it need to go to repair shop.


If you have a volt meter you may try and repair it yourself. First however disconnect the speakers and see if the set still goes into protect. If so you may have shorted output and drive transistors. There will be open resistors near them as well. You can compare the bad channel with a nearby working channel since normally only channel shorts out at a time. Always replace outputs in pairs since they in push pull configuration .

Receiver blowing fuses


Problem is most likely shorted output transistors. These are the large transistors mounted on the heatsink. When these go short, they usually take out some the adjoining resistors in that channel.

Blown sony reciever fuses


Fuses in Sony receivers usually only blow if the output transistors on one channel have shorted out. These transistors will need to be replaced, or the unit will just keep blowing the fuses.

MY MHC-GNZ7D MUSIC SYSTEM ONLY SHIWING PLEASE WAIT , ITS NOT WORKING PLEASEGIVE ME SUJETION


One possibility is that the power-on speaker protection delay is stuck on. The most common cause of this is a shorted transistor in one of the power amplifier channels. In that case, you will need to replace the speaker driver transistors in that channel. I don't have service information on your particular model; it may use power amplifier modules rather than individual transistors.

The tricky part is identifying the amplifier power and speaker output terminals to test for this problem. To find a shorted output transistor, you need to measure the resistance between the output of each channel and the plus, then the minus power supply connections. There is a relay between the amplifier output and each speaker terminal on the back; this relay is turned off by the speaker protection circuit, so you can't measure from the speaker terminals. If you have a fried transistor, one of the tests will show a resistance of a fraction of an ohm. A good transistor will have a very high resistance or read open. This will be the case whether you have modular amplifiers or discrete transistors.

If you see a blown fuse, that is a strong indication that you do have a fried transistor. Sometimes the speaker protector circuit shuts down fast enough to save the fuse, but not always.

I have a sony STR-de135 receiver whlie looking for one problem created another.While the receiver was unpluged I touched and output transistor MN2488 and it sparked now the left channel sounds distorted so...


The capicitors in the unit are charged. Replacing the output transistor(s) is not a task for a novist. Capicitors, resistors, driver transistors and sometime preamp chips can also be bad as well. If all the bad components are not replaced the parts you replace could blow out again.

Kenwood KR-A4070 blowing 5a 125v fuses


I am guessing that the ceramic resistor is close to the output transistors. I would also guess that one or more of the output transistors has shorted. This causes a high current draw that is blowing the fuse. You could also have a power supply problem. The ceramic resistor is a .22ohm dual emitter resistor that is used in the output stage. The transistors located close by are probably shorted and should be replaced. Start there and let us know what happens once the transistors and the resistor are changed.

Nad 310 blows fuse in left channel at turn on.


Hi, Unfortunately, this means that the output transistors on the left channel have blown. I've rebuilt a couple 310s, and I own one myself, so this isn't the first time I've seen it. The chassis doesn't ventilate the left channel as well as it does the right, so it tends to die sooner.
If you can do this yourself, it will not be terribly expensive, but the main output transistor is a MOSFET, which means you'll have to be very careful about static, and you'll have to find a substitute for it as well, as it is no longer available.
I strongly recommend replacing the small electrolytic caps in the amp too. By now heat and age will have taken their toll on them. In my 310, replacing them wasn't an option to get it to behave well.

Receiver fuse continuosly blows when replaced and powered up


Ir's not likely to be a resistor. Sounds like a shorted component in the power supply. A diode or bridge rectifier, or possibly a transistor or Regulator IC.

Hope that helps...

Kenwood basic M2 Amp Lightning strike


you can check the output transistors for short circuits with the low ohms range or diode checker . If they have failed, then it is often a good idea to replace all as much stress can be placed on an output array in this type of failure. to repair reliable, all outputs on an offending channel should be replaced.

Make sure the fuse you replaced was the same type of fuse. check markings.... T stands for sloblo... a fast blo duse may let go at turn on. The power supply may have a shorted rectifier diode in it also.

be aware however, every time a fuse of that rating blows... more damage may be occurring to the amp.

Volume and multi channel output issue


Hi there. Are you familiar with board level repair for such products ? Your problem is most likely hardware. Either some of the final output transistors are fried, or it's a dsp problem, a regulator, a diode, a transistor in the circuit.. it could be a lot of things. But if everything was working fine and it quit someday without a change in the system's setup, it really looks like an hardware issue ! Do you have a way in the manual, that sets factory defaults, a kind of reset ? A lot of such units do have that. Try to unplug/interchange speakers as well, a shorted speaker could make the amp go nuts as well, but i wouldn't bet on it. Still, i'd check that out. Hope that helps ! cheebster.
