Here is your service manual:

Scroll down and find link on this page "Get Manual" and click on that. You can only download two manuals a day unless you are registered at the site.

Lots of luck on this one... there are 16 transistors per side that can all fry... Fail to weed out all the failed ones and it immediately blows again. Use a 150 Watt incandescent lamp in the hot side of the power input to act as a current limiting fuse while testing so you don't blow up more parts. When the unit is good to go, the lamp will go out when you power it on after briefly lighting. This is likely an expensive repair.

I have a crate vtx 212 amp and the power comes on but none of the chanels comes on and no sound what so ever comes out. Nothing looks burnt or corroded idk what the problem is i need help lol

If sure that power is reaching and getting into unit, then confirm that a signal is also reaching unit. If both are positive, then your gear is FUBAR if signal is going into correct input.

Not working anymore after I plugged in I have heard some electric noise.

Wild guess but if not powering up, possible that fuse blew (if no external, then there's often one on the power board), or something blew in power supply...check for blown filter capacitors (the larger ones, for leaking, or blown/bulging tops), burnt resistor, or bad diodes.

M-Audio AV20 smells like burnt

Yes, it is possible to burn an IC and not the fuse, because of Safety standards, the fuse has the function to avoid a possible fire, but it should deliver all the power needed by the circuit it is protecting, and that amount of power can burn, in this case, the IC.
From my technical point of view, there should not be a problem to connect the speaker to 110 V instead of 220 V, all that might happen is to have less power available at output, I have no idea about the reason of the burnt IC, but, as we all know, they (the IC's), don't need a reason to burn themselves whenever they decide to.
So, the next step, will be to replace the burnt IC, and that is not a simple task, you need a SMD station and some experience in doing such jobs.
Good luck and best wishes.

Behringer dsp2024p power adapter burnt...i need the details of the power adapter

It uses a regular AC power cord like on a PC.Here is a link to the manual and on page 10 show a power cord socket of 120v Ac just like on an amp or PC.

BOSS TU-3 Tuner will not work with power supply or battery

It was probably connected backwards in polarity from a power supply which burnt a diode. These things have backwards polarity of 9v adapters which means positive on the outside of the plug and ground in the middle, unless you have the original boss power supply.If you have a generic power supply, cut the plug off and switch the wires and try it.

I purchased a brand new zed 436 on the 26th may 2011. However, all the faders except 1 feel like they have sand or somthing in them and the power supply fan is quite loud, what should i do, yours in...

If the faders are not SERVO driven they should not be rough. Sometimes they have slot sealing plastic covering the groove of the slider that may give some drag. As to the fan, the unit looks like it has a small fan which tend to be noisier than larger ones. Some fans are throttled by sensing temperature. Make sure the air flow is free and not occluded by cables or cabinetry.

Hello everyone, you are my last hope. Here is my story I have a Triton Le bought in Mexico in 2005, it has the American AC/AC power supply cable. I moved to Europe and there I bought a 240V INPUT (9V...

I have been trying to find a schematic, however the damage should be limited in the unit.

Since there is only 9VAC input, we know that it has to go through a rectifier and a filter capacitor and then likely a regulator. I doubt the problem goes beyond the regulator.

The screen light MAY be independent of the logic power in the unit, the LED's will NOT be independent.

The voltage rating of the fuse is NOT a problem.

You likely blew out the rectifiers as a start. They may be individual diodes or a small module with four diodes inside.

The diodes SHOULD have survived but check them with an ohmmeter on the diode range. The Filter cap may be destroyed, and alsothe regulator which is likely a three terminal one like a 7805.

Blows main fuse. Found burnt place on circuit board where connection 1 is. It's the board that's mounted to the heat sink with fan at the back. Disconnected connector 3 that goes to con 1. Now fuse does...

Chances are a power transistor has shorted. Sometimes input rectifier diodes short or electrolytic caps.

Here is a hint to troubleshoot this: Connect a 150 watt lamp in series with the hot side of the power line to the amp. This will limit the current (and voltage) and prevent the fuse from blowing. You can do a lot of troubleshooting at the much reduced voltage.

If board is burnt to carbon, this "cancer" needs to be cut out and removed as the blackened board is slightly conducive instead of an insulator. Often a circuit trace has fried the board. One must install jumpers around ones that have smoked.
