Question about Teac A-H300 Amplifier

1 Answer

No power Hi, A friend recently borrowed this amp for a party. It came back dead. He eventually told me that he'd been using it at full volume when suddenly everything went dead. Is there a thermal cutout inside? If so is there anything I can do to sort it out? Thank you - Jayne

    Hi chiclana

    Never ever lend stereo gear to mates for a party.I wont even hire gear to them for that. Ask them why they need it, and so often they will say" because I dont wont to blow up my own!!"
    A few things to ask you


    1. Does the unit have any power at all?

    2. can you check for any blown fuses

    3. is the unit still covered by any warranty
    Please let me knowand we can go from there.

Hello,can any one help.i have a technics su-x955 amp that has has finally after mant years has packed up.when i power up i hear the usual click sound in the amp and all the other separates fire into...


If you hear something faint this would not be a fuse issue.

NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING.

Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the
amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2
volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control
or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or
'dead' spot through idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate
every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like
Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

I have a Sherwood Nottingham R-925RDS receiver. No matter what input I select it does not connect to the amplifier section. Everything else appears to function ok. Unit switches on & off, correct...


Let's work with FM as that is ONboard and can't be connected wrong. Does THAT work?

Volume goes to zero and protection light comes on, any idea what the problem is?


Check the speaker wires for a short. Try operating the amp without the speaker wires hooked up.

Cant get subwoofer to work on my sony amp. speaker works on other ports. ive turned on subwoofer port and up the level to max but no sound nothing.


Never use maximum volume for troubleshooting. The errant switch or control that you eventually find and change will suddenly release the amp's full power and you'll destroy your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

A specific model of both would help in the diagnosis. Most modern AVR

I have a technics amplifier model SU-G75, it will power on but it will not play any of the equipments that is attached to it


You have basically the same problem as a chap with another amp on this site. So here's what I told him:
"You need to determine if the power is getting to the audio amp section. For instance with the volume full up is it humming etc?
As a 'rule' it's unlikely that both left and right channels will fail at the same time (unless you have done something silly with the amp) you are looking for something that is common to both channels. Which is why the power section is first suspect. The exception to the rule (above) is where amps use say an IC power amp for both channels. You will find this IC on the big heat sink. Check whatever is on that anyway for damage or burning.
The only other area could be the pre-amp part. Again this could be a single IC controling both channels, so it's failure could cause a loss of sound. By the way if you can hear music/sound coming through when you put it up to full volume the pre-amp will be generaly good. "

Took my RA300 and Tannoy Reveal X speakers to a cellar party for halloween. No drinks were spilled or anything but it had an ipod plugged into it most of the night and the volume on the amp turned to max,...


Normally when people bring their HI-FI to a party they tend to fix up the leads to the speakers in a flimsy manner ( as it is only temp) . With the crowd mulling around these leads(wires) could very well come loose or even short out. This leads to your Final Drive ( Output Amp) to short out. It is not an expensive repair. Check your final amp & replace any shorted/blown items. To get full satisfaction the job best be handled by the local agents of the amp.

Carver stereo amp will only play


That should be normal. The main inputs usually go directly to the power amp. If you want volume control, put a mixer with faders beween them... Radio Shack used to have some inexpensive mixers.

Which speakers can I use?


You can use any wattage speakers as long as they are not less than the watts from your amp. However you can still use lower wattage speakers as long as you don't turn up the volume full or two loud! Otherwise your damage the speaker.
HOWEVER you must get the ohms matched up right. You must never connect any speaker with a low Ohm to a high rated amp. Or you will blow the output stage transistors or IC.
Most Amps are 8 ohms, so you could connect an 8 or 16 etc, but not a 4 ohm.
