First check on all your cabling, speakers and input sources for loose/defective cables. can you tell me what brand is your amp and model? does it employs digital source switch or mecahnical switches only.

Hi i have a rotel ra-610 amplifier and am having intermitent static on the right hand channel only how do igo about fixing it?


I would prod and poke the channel with an insulated screwdriver this will cause buzz sounds. This should find the cause of the problem. Remember that the left hand channel is identical so you can compare the right with the left. For example if you get a weird buzz on the right when you touch it, but not on the left at the same point you might have found the faulty part.
Don't go near the power supply section as it's nothing to do with that the fault.

Quad 33 chanel bad sound when playing music


As you know that the right is good you can compare that with the left. First look around for burnt resistors or damaged parts.

The next thing to do is with an insulated tool poke the two channels to see what buzz sound each channel makes. You should quickly find the distortion section with this method.

What would be the probable cause of my konzert amplifier av-502 after replacing 2 power transistors npn & pnp in the left channel, the sound is distorted. i'ved checked the voltage across the spea


Check the bias resistors. They can burn out when power amp transistors fail. They will be very near to those two replacements. You can compare any parts using the right channel as a good. Readings and voltage measurements should be the same for both channels. Also the look of the parts. If a resistor is off-colour in the left, but not in the right you know something is up.

Marantz Pm-7200 left channel weak compared to the right


hmmm. Let's start by swapping the wires you are using for your speakers. Double check the wire connections first, then take the left and place iton the right and vice versa.

Left channel volume is very faint as compared to the right channe


It sounds like the preamp section is working but the power amp is not. Look at the power supply section and see if it is getting power to the power amp and if ok check the power transistors or IC.

Muffled/bad sound on 1 channel of Marantz PM4400 amplifier


Go directly to the main amp, follow the leads from the speaker terminals. And you should find something on an heatsink. If there are two transistors see if they are running hotter than the other channel. If you see any damage to them (compare with good channel) replace both!
If all you see is a black box with pins coming out of it you need to replace that. They sometimes have the letters STK on them.
Replace both types with the letters and numbers of the same type. IE 2SC 1220 or STK 589.

More than likely the final amp chip needs replaced,and or may be a cold solder joint on the chip amp. GOOD LUCK
