Question about Car Audio & Video

Open Question

Thump T4006 amp has burnt power supply components in the amp. There are 8 heat sunk devices on the edges of the board towards the 12Vdc power connection end. These devices are so burnt that I can't read the part numbers. I suspect they are MOSFET transistors but ????? Could someone take the bottom cover off and read the part numbers. This would help a lot. I can take it from there.

If you are connecting the negative lead of the voltmeter to the chassis of the car, and then checking the voltage at the amp on the ground power input of the amplifier, then your amplifier is not grounded properly. The amp should also be grounded on the chassis of the car, so if you have 4 V DC on it, it can not possibly be grounded to the chassis. The chassis is the same potential at any point on the car.

Could it be that the 4 V DC is at the power terminals +B or positive voltage? That would not be an uncommon thing to have since the amplifier will hold some charge after it is turned off and that would be normal.

Since you have a voltage meter, you could check the current draw of the amplifier if your meter also have a setting for current or amps.

If so, connect the meter in series with the ground of the amplifier. That means to disconnect the ground wire at the amplifier, and use the meter to complete the ground connection by putting one lead of the meter on the ground wire that should be connected to the chassis of the car and the other lead to the ground terminal of the amplifier. It does not matter which lead you connect to the wire or the amplifier, that would only make your measurement i postive current or negative current, but the meter must be set up properly for current. Most of them have a diiferent jack to put the positive lead into for current. most have two different jacks. If yours does also, choose the lead with the larger amp rating. Most have 10A and 300mA, the lareger amp rating is 10A. That is 10 amps max and the 300mA means 300 milli-amps which is .3 amps max.
Do this with the amplifier turned off and the car off. If you measure any current at that point you do have a current draw with the amp off and the amp would need to be serviced by a professional. If you have no current draw there, the amp is not the source of your battery draining. This would find out for certain if the amplifier is really draining the battery.

If you have found this information help a rating of "FixYa" would be appreciated.
If you need more help just ask,

Sounds like you have fried your output transistors. They can be replaced if u have the patience and know-how. Also check the resistors near the transistors. Some of them may need to b replaced too. I fu replace the transistors and the resisitors are still fried, u run the chance of burning up the new transistors again. I usually just replace both items since it's not that expensive and I'm doing the labor. What have you got 2 lose?

It probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible causes, read through the following page.

Fosgate's get very hot.My first amp was a fosgate and I freaked out because it got really really hot. And smelled bad. So I moved it so where it could get more air That should help you out a lot and the smell went away on its own. As for your battery dying. Basically your stressing out your battery and your alternator is having a hard time keeping the battery changed. I'm sure you see your light dim when a low bass note hits. Invest in a cap. This will help save your battery your alternator and should even sound better.

SOURCE: t1500-1bd burnt mosfet

First of all is the mosfet your talking about in the output section or in the power supply section? Most car amps use mosfets in the power supply section, some use them in the output section. To test the transistors in your amp, take a digital volt meter and set it to diode check. Then take the leads and put them accross the first and third legs of the transistors. Usally the red test lead on the first leg and black test lead on the third leg of transistor. If you get a reading of 000 then transistor is shorted. If you get a reading below 600 then transistor is on it's way out if not allready or it's next to a shorted transistor that is it's complimentry output transistor. comonly you will have 2 transistors working together, one NPN and one PNP per a channel, or 4 of them in a bridged type output circuit depending on the watts and how man channels your amp has. I was just looking at the specs of this amp and it's got me confused. It says it's a 2 channel but looking at all the info on different pages it says at 4ohm:200wattsx4 and at 2ohms:300wattsx4 and 1 channel mono 600watts into 4ohms. weird for a 2 channel. anyway that is how you test your transistors. Same way for the power supply section but, you will come accross a couple or more switching diodes that look like transistors and you will get a 000 reading when you test those like I specified. They rarely go out and most of the time there is only 2 of them. They will have a diagram like a diode on the front showing you which way the power flows. Let me know what you find out. Your amp should have went to protect mode if you smoked a mosfet.

Can i hook this amp to my home sound system


Technically, yes, but there are some challenges. First, the input voltage to the amp is 12VDC, not 120VAC. You would need to find a power supply large enough to supply 12VDC at 30-40 amps (plus has proper currently limiting or fuses to protect against overloading). Second, most home speakers are 8 ohm impedance. While the amp can power an 8 ohm speaker, the output power is cut in half (compared to a 4 ohm speaker).

No picture no sound


Hello,

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc. Look for 5vdc, 12vdc, and 24dvc.


Hope this will help to rectify the fault and you have to be careful, because the power board contains high voltages.

I have a Toshiba, 62HM195, It turns on for about 10 seconds & then turns off. No picture or sound ever appears. What could the problem be?


Hello,
There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc. Look for 5vdc, 12vdc, and 24dvc. You can look at the sample of the power supply board, the picture with the soldering side has labelling of what you should have on the output of the power supply, yours may be labeled on the top side of the board, there are high voltage on the board so you must be real careful, if you are not sure, let the professional handle it.
Good luck in solving the problem.....

Does it have a fuse we got hit by lighting and now the Pc wont power up


To fix the problem, you need to disassemble the power supply, replace the burnt out fuse, & also check the bridge rectifier section for burnt out rectifying diodes (these usually get burnt out if the high current gets the chance to leak past the fuse, which could sometimes happen). If you find burnt out rectifying diodes, you will need to replace them as well, as they could burn out the fuse again when you try to use the power supply while they are still there.

My zenith big screen tv won't come on model pvr5263dt


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. This might have happened due to over-voltage. Please check the power supply unit for swollen capacitors and burnt wires/components on the power supply board of your TV. You should try and turn off the TV for 8-10 hours to reset it. This issue might have occurred due to blown pico fuses located on the D-Board or due to blown fuse on the power supply board.

Please do rate the solution & revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Want to use the atx-300-12z as a hobby power supply. Need 12vdc.


You're asking for a fire or just burning out the power supply. But,at your own peril, check the yellow wires for 12v or buy a power supply test adapter from ebay. It bypasses the power switch usually done by the motherboard & will fire up the power supply like it was connected to a board. Then test the wires for 12v. Should be any yellow wire,red is 5v. Green is 3.3 or 3v.

TV turns off by itself


You are having a dry joint problem especially in the power supply. Resolder the joints in the power supply and else where. whenever your tv heats up the solder expand and break contacts. when your tv cools down the solder joints makes contact. If u dont understand, please seek professional help.
