One channel not working

Hi, i've bought from ebay one Verge VGA285 as is condition. one ofw the channels is working fine , the other not, when i adjusted the input level the non working channel started but it was like a protected mode because was working for 1 sec then off for 1sec and so long , i've opened the aplifier and i've switched between (left to right channel) the final transistors thinking that one of them if burned but they are fine , when i've tried again to see if it's working i've noticed that the final transistors on the side of the channel that is not working are overheating very fast...any ideea , any schematics for the amplifier? thank you

    My name is Harry. I have a verge 160w car amp that has ben working fine for the last year, but now all of a sudden there was is no sound, the power amp green light is on but I get no sound.
    I connected my speakers direct to the car stereo and it works fine.
    Its when I connect it to the amp that I get no sound. What could be the problem?

You should also make sure your RCA's are in proper working order you can test it by switching them (putting the right into the left channel and vise versa)

Could possible a bad bias resister. easy enough checked with a meter for ohm. also check around the circuit one the side that gets hot see if the transisters farther in are getting hot as well of if they seem out of range on a meter. One thing I have found is if you look carefully at an amplifier stage it is pretty bisymetrical. so use measurements from one side to compare to the other. Sometimes this will give clues.

One Station only no sound but great picture. The additional digital channels with that station work fine.

Some of the channels have moved. So your TV might be picking them up differently. You need to do a Full Factory Reset tuning rather than just a rescan.

Rescan simply looks at the place holders where the old channels were stored and refreshes them. A Factory Reset (A.K.A. Shipping Condition) wipes the channel memories and starts again fresh.


Hi Tony

You`ve mentioned that ON CERTAIN CHANNELS THE TV WORKS FINE, so your trying to say that not all channels THE BLACK SQUARE APPEARS IN THE MIDDLE O THE SCREEN... my be that black square is generated from the broadcast center. may be your unit is good. let me ask you how many channels that your tv works fine..?

Hi Carter,

All is good for you here, the answer is yes to cloning, but you will need the software and cables to do so, if you haven't already got this.

If you do require software and cables, ebay is the best and often cheapest way of getting this gear. look under Electronics, Radios, and follow the links to Parts & accessories.

Failing that, join yahoo group SPECIFIC to you radio Make/Model, the expert team there will give you all the info you need, plus you can download manuals, schematics and software free.

I hope this is the news you've been waiting for.


Re, all i get is a distorted picture of the game screen. I've tried fine tuning the TV around that channel but it doesn't help.

hi sounds like the av sender inside the ps could be getting dodgy, have you tried it on another tv?

Hi i have a nordmende tv and was working until it was plugged out of the mains now it stuck on standby and i dont have remote its an nw32lqt any ideas for easy fix i ve tried letting capicators drain no...


while the TV is on standby, press the channel + or channel - button on the TV and the TV should power on.

If TV doesn't power on after pressing the channel button, then it means your TV is having a power problem. But I don't what to believe it is a power problem.

Let me know if press the channel button does not power on the TV so that I can explain further on the cause and way to fix the problem.

Yours sincerely.


Hi, my remote control is working fine but the TV doesn't respond to it. Only manually the channels and volume can be this a settings problem?

It's a common problem with this model. You must change the IR board. This is very easy to do. Remove the back panel of the tv and unscrew/unplug the original board located where the power button, volume/channel, etc is and plug the new one. I bought my IR at Ebay, but sadly have to say that it was not working. Watch out these bargains, :-(

Hi, what is the sky remote code for Toshiba TV model 32BV500B? Thanks.

I've found two codes that work fine on a revision 8 Sky remote control and a revision 8r remote:

0056 (LG/Goldstar)
981 (General reset)

Both codes enable volume, channel selection and power on/off.

Hello, Thanks for requst me, As far as I understood, you have same settings in both radios, you mentined QT this is the 3° requirment to recive a signal, 1° channel, 2° subchannel (ctcss, pl, etc) and the 3° QT.
if you are using QT you must to send a Call from the other radio, I recomed to set the QT to Off in both radios and tray if you can communicate in both directions.
if does not receive, there is the possibility that one of your radios the Sub channel decoder is not working.
If you could test your radios with a Third radio to know wich radio is not working right.
Good luck
