Question about Pyramid - PS21KX 20 Amp Power Supply Car Audio Amplifier
I'm not sure what you mean by 'wide open voltage'. If it's over 17v, the supply may have multiple problems. I don't have the 52kx schematic but other Pyramid supplies have over-voltage protection. There is an SCR that is triggered when the voltage gets to ~17v. This should clamp the output and trigger a shutdown. You should check the 16v Zener diode and the SCR. If the SCR or the Zener is defective, that would prevent the over-voltage from clamping the voltage. Also confirm that the SCR has a solid connection to the ground terminal of the supply. If it's open, that could prevent the clamp from shutting down the supply.
If the voltage is going high, measure the DC voltage from pin 4 to pin 5 of the LM723. It should remain the same at all times. Also measure the voltage from pin 5 to the ground terminal of the supply. That should also remain constant at all times.
