Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Valve (tube)ECC85 does not light up ,despite having tried 6 new different ones. could a resistor or capacitor,have gone? Help! I love my radio on this gram. although all other visible valves lightup and work, ,and there is the usual lovelt hum when switched on, I have nothing else. would you by any chance have a circuit Diagram, for the Blaupunkt Radiogram Model Arkansa De Luxe, about 1972? in anticipation.

    ok. this was very helpful, what I really need is a circuit diagram, so that I can take out of situ, to be able to see better, I can fix the soldering ok, IF I can get at it, but without a diagram, I am scuppered !!



    in hope. and with thanks.

Check that the valve itself is not faulty, I see if I can find diagrams

Dream Machine buttons no longer work. I can't set time, turn on radio, nothing. Love this unit, help!


If this is a older unit, I'd recommend to get new models, Sony has really improved the audio quality from the initial Dream Machine models. You'd love more the new ones.

Matsui dabr103 radio display lites up blue with no onformation no sound Mine does that, plug it in just get the blue display. Nothing else.


First try unplugging the power cord for five minutes.

If it does not work try pressing power button for ten seconds.

If still no luck, then it is faulty.

When i turned on the standby switch to start playing, the amp made a loud noise, like a pop, then no power. i tried other outlets, but still the red power light does not come on. i have a 1984 jcm 800...


It sounds as though at least Capacitor may have "popped" (blown the can apart), it should be easy to spot IF you are familiar with electronics, if not DO NOT attempt to "have a go at it" and take it to a reputable repairman.

by the way 1 capacitor is normally not the end of the problem, the chances are there will be several either "gone" or well on their way (any with "bulged" tops are also gone), the chances are it will be the power supply section - change EVERY capacitor in that section!

The JCM800 is a Valve amp and as such there can be some SERIOUS voltages flying about, so if you are not confident working on valve gear - DON'T TAKE THE RISK!

AVR2106 blown channel parts list


Though any transistor(s) might well have gone and the capacitor could be changed, I see no reason to change any resistor unless it's burnt up or giving an incorrect resistance reading. A multi-meter will tell you if a resistor is working or not, if it's not dead or weak it won't make a lot of difference to the circuit, but replacing it will simply cost you more money!

I have a "peavey ultra 410" guitar amplifier. it has been sitting in the garage for several years, and there is no power when plugged in. The amplifier is all tube (preamp and amp). My question is this; if...


Even though I don't have a schematic, if you have a VOM, (Volt-Ohm, Milli-Ammeter) we can start. Just because tubes are old doesn't mean they are used up. If a tube doesn't light up that would be a bad one, but they are in parallel off a winding of the power transformer. 1.) Check the on/off switch with the ohmmeter and the line cord for conductivity. 2.) Check the primary winding of the transformer for a low ohms reading. (less than ten ohms). 3.) Some where between the power switch and the pwr. trans. should be a fuse. After these three you should be able to put 120vac. to the unit and bring it back on. Get back with us, Dale

Resistors smoking and burning out on ht line


To be passing enough current to burn the powerrail resistors there is clearly a short to earth from the HT line. Given the circuit of that amp, unless there is physical damage to internal wiring causing the problem, the most likely cause of the problem is one of the ECC83 preamp valves failing with an internal anode to cathode short. Have the valves tested or if there is nowhere local test them yourself with a resistance meter. Check pins 1 to 3 and 6 to 8. There should be no connection in a good valve. Its also worth checking there is no continuity between the heater filament and these pins (heater is pins 4,5 and 9). If you find a fault then discard the valve and buy a new one, repair the dead resistors and try the amp again.

This sounds like a power supply problem. The high voltage for the tubes is not right. Either you are missing an amplification stage because this or one of the coupling caps is faulty. I'd have to see the unit itself to give you any more details.

Not fixed.


I know that a couple of you have had the same problem with the blowing 0.47 ohm resistors. I had responded quite a wile back, but forgot to make any updates. Kostiko is correct about the problem relating to these two 0.47 ohm resistors being blown. In my case on two different Haman Kardon models, this was true, but there could also be another issue. What i have found is even after replacing these resistors, the problem appeared to still be there. What was happening was that right after turning the receiver on, the resistors would blow again. What you need to do is replace the two small ceramic disc style capacitors on the same pcb as the fusible resistors, as they could be shorted as in my case. You could remove these capacitors completely, or replace them with a similar size of the same type, as they are really just there for filtering higher frequency noises from the power supply. You can check them with your multimeter first. They shouldn't shorted even in situe. I forget the size, but they are approximately 100 nano farads. Good luck. I have done this to my AVR135, and it has been running great for about 6 months now.

Your voltage measurements for the resistors are correct. The regulators should be fine. Remember that the pins that you are checking come before the regulators. I would double check these capacitors that I am referring to. Do you have the schematic for this? If you need it I have a copy. The transformer has multiple taps coming off of it. You cam check the other resistors, but I'm sure that they will be fine. I suspect the caps.
