Broke ******** in amp input

As the subject said, when i was removing my amp from my car, the input jacks for sound broke off inside the amp input, i dont know how to get it out as the white and red holes are too small to fit pliers in, when i took it apart, the computer board was glued down so i couldnt reach anything. any ideas?

If the center conductor of the RCA plug broke of inside the RCA jack of the amplifier, you may be able to push it out from the back. If that's not possible, you may have to remove the jack from the board, disassemble it and then push the center conductor out. If you send me a photo of the jack, I may be able to offer more suggestions.

I have a 1950s Montgomery Ward tube amp -- same model as Silvertone 1432. This 10-watt amp suddenly doesn't have any sound out of the mic input jack. Sounds fine in all other input jacks. Could it be a...


There is a or should be a 12AX7 preamp tube driving the microphone side of the amp. That tube could be bad, they are only about 15 to 20 dollars for a new one, don't worry about NOS stuff, waste of money if you ask me. Tung Sol makes good 12AX7s. Also check the volume control. Spray it out with some contact cleaner and rotate the control about 10 times, this will get rid of any dust or oxidation that has occured over time.

Since you don't get any sound it should be just a tube replacement.

My kicker zr240 powers up but its no sound coming out the amp the guts of the amp looks fine


it could be your input section on your amplifier were you rca jacks go in but you should check and make sure it aint your cd player out put on your rca jacks the easy way to check this is with a meter and a cd playing in your cd player turn your meter on volts usually your out put on rca 2.5v some cd players put out 5v so take your postive tester needle and stick it in the inside part of your rca jack and take negative tester needle and touch the outerside of the rca jacks and see if you get any reading if do that good on that part but on your amp no it could be in the input section of your amp it could be as simple as a burnt trace wire on the bottom circuit board or a op amp chip theirs alot in a amplifier but you can test them with a meter to find out witch one bad but i would take it to some one that work on amplifiers if you dont know how to test them

One channal does not work


swap your RCA's input to the amp. Does the channel that works switch to the other side? If so, then the problem is either your rca wire, or in your source unit. (try the wire first). If the same channel still is out, then problem in the amplifier or speakers. Move to swaping the speaker wires, right to left, and left to right... If problem same, then trouble is AMP, if problem moved, then trouble is speaker. If amp, remove amp, troubleshoot amp... (there are 3 basic parts to any amp... Power supply, input section, and amplifier section...) You know it's not the power supply because the sound is good on at least one channel, and most alll amps use one power supply for all channels, so if one channel sounds good, then you can rule out the power supply. Second, when an amplifier fails (usually, 90% of the time or more) it will result in a shorted output transistor or some other nasty condition that will blow a fuse, or toast a supply almost instantly, and again, your amp powers up, so odds are that the amplifier section of the amp might be ok. (no guarantee here, it's just the odds...I'd say it's like a 40/60 thing.... This leaves you to focus on the input section. First rule out the simple things... bad wiring, (rca, or speaker), bad speaker, bad source. Then rule out the simple things at the amp... broken rca input connectors (inside the amp at the PCB where the solder is) or outside the amp, where the jacks may have been crushed. Then rule out broken speaker terminals, where they can be cracked inside at the board where the solder is in the same way. After all this, you need your amp serviced by a qualified tech.

Hooking up system using HI-INPUT amp wires.


This may sound dumb, but are there any other inputs left on the amp? Most amps that i have worked with have a special set of inputs for high input. (by high input you mean speaker level right?) If those exist the obvious answer is to use those. They should be labeled, so just hook them up according to them. You may need a special adapter from the amp manufacturer. If you dont have any high level inputs or any not broken inputs left you have two options. You can either A: junk the amp or B: open it up and solder new connectors back on. (it sounds harder than it really is. There are four large pieces of metal to solder onto the board for a set of inputs)

PINs for high level input


Hello gmb_66,

You did not specify exactly which Jensen amp you have. None of the Jensen PowerPlus series I found had high-level inputs. You can go here and select your amp to download the manual. They should also have the connector for speaker inputs.

Most amps that have both high-level and RCA inputs allow you to use one or the other, but not both at the same time. If your head unit has RCA ourputs, those would be the ones to use, because they generally provide a cleaner signal to the amp with less noise.

Hope this helps.

Broken RCA / phono jack - where to find new part?


You can buy Panel mount RCA (Phono) jacks at Radioshack, I think a 4 pack is less than 5 bucks, That should take care of your problem.

Good Luck,
