Can I fix a fried amp?

I was hooking up a compaciter and didnt realize the compaciter had a charge stored in it. When tring to hook up to my amp, it touched the chassis of my amp and the amp has ceased to work. Checked all four external fuses hoping it just blew one of them, but they are all fine. Is there anyway I can fix it inexpensively because I have no warranty on the amp.

    I have an explode amp that recently stopped giving any output,i was not using a fuse from the battery but the fuses on the outside of the amp are still intact and the power light still turns on,is there any way the amp could blow without the fuses blowing?

Hi, how good are you with electronics? Are you able to open up the amp and see any obvious problems? I suggest that if your not very good with electronic circuits, get a professional to have a look at it, as if you damage it more by trying to fix it your self, it will probably cost you more to fix it. It may be as simple as an earth track been burnt, but even that in most cases will force you to completely disassemble the amp to find the problem. It may also be the diode right next to the power supply terminals that may be damaged and in some cases that can cause problems. Let me know if you open the amp, if possible post some pics and will see if there is something obvious that stands out. Cheers

Many amps have a zenor diode in them that will protect the amp in the event of a short this diode is cheap and easy to replace. take the amp apart and look between the positive and neg rails on the board it will be there any one that sells them can test them if yiur multimeter does not have a diode check feature.

The first thing you did wrong was buy a sony explode...those guys need to stick to making televisions, secondly ALWAYS have a fuse no more than 3 feet from your battery,between that and the one(s) on your amp it would be impossible to damage your amp.Also ALWAYS disconnect the neggative cable from your battery when you do any tinkering with the wires on your amp.

SOURCE: Amp not working

my friend your amp could be getting power that does not mean that it is working.the power only goes to certain point but because your regulator or other related component is defected your amp power supply will not work until the defect is corrected.take it to a tech and have your set repaired.good luck.

SOURCE: amp light is on but doesn't put anything out to my subs

if you are sure its the amp. the problem is internal. but if your not sure, try a different stereo or source of sound to the inputs of the amp. if there is still no sound than it is the amplifier and it could be a number of things.

SOURCE: i have 4/3/2 ch. alpine f-240 amp- i want to hook

run two 6x8s on each of the front channels of the amp. then depending on the sub you can bridge it on the rear channels.only if its a single four ohm. if its a dual 2 ohm sub run each coil on each channel. 1 coil-1channel. the other coil-the other channel. amp should run fine may run a little hot since it will be doing all it can do at a safe ohm load. just make sure it is mounted in a well vented area. should be safe.

Samsung corby not charging GT s3850


Are you very sure it is the right charger? I have hooked my phone up to charge before, not realizing that the charger I had used was for something else. Many of the chargers these days look very similar, sometimes exactly the same. However the output on the other charger is quite often not right. This will cause your phone to not be charged.

The spark could be from the capacitors in the amplifier charging. Make sure the main fuse from your battery is still good and also check all the fuses on the amplifier. Verify all the wiring is correct and make sure none of the wires from inside the positive cable are poking out and touching the vehicle or amplifier chassis. If you have a 1k ohm resistor, you can put it in series with the amplifier power line to slowly charge the capacitors. You can do that by following the directions from the link below. After doing all that, remove the 1k resistor, hook it all up and try it again. If it still doesn't work, make sure your remote wire coming from the head unit has a voltage on it when the head unit is on. You can get a cheap volt meter from a hardware store or wal-mart.

Hooking up the amp i had the ground wire connected and was going to hook up the power wire and it hit the case of the amp know the amp turns on but there is no sound from the speakers other amps work on...


sadly, your amps' output MOSFETS are more than likely toast.

your amp was grounded, and you touched the amp chassis with the power line.
electricity will follow any path available to find ground. in your case, the output mosfets became your main ground-path since they are directly connected to the amps chassis (heat sink) and internally you had grounded the amp so power would flow full force through the output transistors in the serach for a ground.

open up your amp and smell the row of MOSFET transistors. you'll probably even be able to see some burnt transistor legs.

repair or replace.

F61 code after a speaker wire touched the chassis and sparked


You have shorted the speaker wores and blown the output amp pac. Depending upon the model, the replacement part varies from $75-$95.I don't have a listing for the SC-HT740, but the cost range should be accurate.

Visonik 350watt Amp Doesnt Come On....


With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter probe on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red probe alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

fuse blown maybe? check the fuse(s) on the amp, and also on your car's dash for audio or acc maybe. And check the bubble on your battery.
