SOURCE: keeps blowing a main fuse

The receiver will need to be diagnosed by aprofessional. It could be many things. Most likely shorted output amp.

After a gig last night we tried our Marshall JCM 2000 DSL401and it had developed two noises without anything plugged in. The first is a transformer hum that I'd never noticed before and when standby is...


Likely the filter capacitors have a problem. Best to take this in for repair... it is ODD that there is noise with the standby switch is in standby... That makes no sense... In standby it appears that power is removed from the power amp high voltage so nothing should come through the speaker... Unles maybe one off the power tubes had a total meltdown which should have blown the fuse.

The fuse inside the head keeps blowing when i turn power on, and Im getting continuity between the white & black from the transformer


Hi,
Looks like the main power IC is shorted!
Check the main power amp IC and replace it if there is a short between their pins!

Hope that helps you out!

I got a Marshall MG100HDFX for free from a friend stating it was blown. I asked how this happened and he said that one of his friends plugged in another speaker or amp into the second speaker input in the...


The power amp section has blown parts. You will likely find they use a chip like the TDA7293 as the power amp output and it will be blown, shorted causing the fuse to blow. These cost $6 from Digikey.com. Find a competent tech to replace it and use heat sink compound. Verify the part before ordering one. They come with leads bent either way so make sure you get the one with a matching suffix letter. When firing up after repair, put a 60 watt light bulb in series with the hot power lead to act as a current limiter... saves blowing fuses if there is another problem.

The fuses on my marshall amp kept blowing so i took out the output assembly and it worked, but there is no sound. the output chip was burned. Where can i get a new Output Module Assembly For Marshall...


If the output module has a TDA7293 chip/stick on it, replace it. Use thermal compound like they did and observe any insulating washers used. Clean board and check for shorts after replacing.

Get them at about $6:

and

Depending on how the leads are bent... first one leads go down (V suffix), second they are bent horizontally(HS suffix).

My jcm 2000 tsl 100 , doesn't produce the amount of gain i expect from it, i thought it gave as much as a mesa rectifier amp, i replaced the preamp tubes , but still, not enough gain


The sound level output is a true measure and unless you can compare specifications between units, you are probably listening to salesmen who want to sell you product.

The power level rating is OFTEN falsified and a LOT of the actual sound level performance depends upon the speaker used.

You should get a sound level meter to compare amps.

Remember to NEVER run more than 100 Db to avoid legal liability for hearing damage. I know several musicians who are nearly deaf now from being exposed to high levels too long. You can look up what the govt limits are now with Google.

The 2000 should EASILY reach the 100 Db level.

I need to replace the fuse for a used Marshall MG100HDFX that I bought. Where is the fuse located inside the head?


If the fuse is blown make sure the reason it blew is repaired before replacing the fuse. Start the amp up after replacing it with a 100 Watt light bulb in series with the hot side of the power into the unit. This will act as a current limiter to verify it is repaired and will not blow the fuse. When you open the unit the fuse will be obvious... Follow the hot side of the power cord, through the switch to the fuse.

Marshall JCM 2000 dual super lead 50 watt going out on me


Very nice amp!

First off, is the amp getting sufficient power? An unreliable AC current from your wall can affect the performance.

Have you tried the amp with a different speaker? Checked for a loose connection from the amp to the speaker? Is it the correct ohms rating?

Second, are you experienced in electronics? The problem could lie in a faulty solder connection, a bad component, etc.

If you are not confident in opening the amp and troubleshooting it yourself, take it to a audio repairman. Marshall's are some of the easier ones to fix.....

JCM 2000 TSL 601 MARSHALL AMP TURNS ON NO SOUND TUBES DONT LIGHT


If the tubes are not lighting, either the fuse has blown or the power transformer might have an issue.

Be vvery careful as there are lethal voltages present in these.

If the fuse blew, replace it and try just once as there could be other problems and more damage could be done.

Marshall jcm 2000 dsl 100 head not powering cabs 4/8ohm outs


Since you are getting some output, the amp section is probably OK. There are circuits designed to handle thge difference impedence outputs. This should be a relatively simple repair for any shop that handles these units. If you don't have one local to you, let me know and I'll locate the service info and get you more specifics.

I have a marshall 100w JCM 2000, DSL 100 Head, going into a 1960 A 4x12 cabinet. Which inputs and settings should i use on the rear of the amp in order not to damage it


Most 1960 cabs have an option for 8 or 16 ohm... i dont think there is a 4 ohm option. The Jcm 2000 heads have the ability to do all three ohm setting. Thats all you really have to worry about. Make sure the ohms match up. The 1960 cabs typically have 4 t-75 speakers in them which are 75 watts each so wattage is not a problem. There is some argument about what ohms sound best. It doesn't really change that much in the sound in my personal opinion. I run mine at 16 ohms though cause i think it sounds brighter...
