One channel has failed and is in need of repair. There are some transistors inside that are "noisy" and sending signals down the line. This is a bit tricky to find, but a service shop that does audio repairs should be able to fix this. Figure about $15-$45 for parts depending upon what circuits are effected.

That particular channel is blown. These are not the easiest units to repair. Given that this is a commercial amp, I would recommend that this unit be brought to an authorized Crown service center for repair. Expect parts cost in the $50 range plus the labor charge.

How much watts is the crown ce 2000


Depending on the configuration of speakers you have it will deliver different amounts of power up to 1950 watts when used to power a single 4 ohm speaker. Typical usage would be powering a pair of 8 ohm speakers, in which case it will deliver 400 watts per channel/ speaker.

Crown CE1000 amps, 1 dead channel - Can I diagnose via RJ-45?


Before asuming it is the power transistors check the power on relay first as mine had the same proble and it was because of the Relay that did not switch on the one channel or amp (remember this is a power amp and consist of two mono amps)

Left side output


Sounds like there is a short somewhere on the left channel inside the amp. not easy to fix without seeing the unit.

Fault lights


I'm not sure what you mean when you say the channel 2 does not work in bridge mode. Bridge mode effectively turns the amp into a mono amp, thus there is no channel 1 or 2. The fans will only turn on when the heat is high enough, so that is not a problem. Please describe what you perceive as the problem with these and I'll try to help.

Thanks,
Dan

Electrical prob


This in an indication that there is a problem detected in the final output stage of the amp. This amp will require service. Crown amps are not teh most straightforward designs and should not be repaired by an inexperienced tech. There are high voltages present inside these amps that can be dangerous. The typical cause of this symptom are bad output transistors. Expect a parts cost in the $40 range plus the local labor rate.

Crown Amp Possibly Blown??


Hi, probably worth fixing, Crown gear is generally reliable, but this one has failed for some reason. Puffs of smoke are not generally good... If it has blown an output array, expect a costly repair.
