Eclipse amp with cooked tripath chip

Hi there, I've got an Eclipse amp with a dead TP2350B chip. I was wondering if anyone knew where to purchase these? I know it's dead since I opened the amp, replaced a fuse and it failed the "no-smoke test". I may also need to change the TC2001 chip but didn't test it yet since I know the TP2350 is gone. If someone knows of a source for these or someone who can repair the amp (will have to change the chip though) please let me know. Thanks in advance! Oh, just for refference, the problem was originally turning on/off by itself repeatedly, a feature of the Tripath chip I learned after reading the datasheets.

    I have the same problem and it's been at Canada's authorised service center for over 4 months and I still don't have news.

SOURCE: eclipse 2.13oe camtec

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead 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.

If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.

SOURCE: need help in installing amp.

depending on the power consumption of the amp u will need to run a 4-12 ga wire to the positive battery terminal. then u need to ground it with a wire connected to a clean ground like a chassis bolt. next u need preamp outputs on ur deck to send audio signals to the amp. lastly u need to hook up a remote wire to the blue wire in ur cd player harness

SOURCE: the amp is not turning on but all tests show power

You have to have a power source going to the remote wire, there's most likely a remote wire on the deck, which you can connect it to. You don't necessarily have to have it hooked up properly, I've seen people run a small wire from the rem to the postive on the amp, though it makes it all-time power which will drain your battery over-time, also I've seen my buddies blow amps from that, lol. Probably not the best choice.

I just purchased the Whirpool 4 pc appliance package in the Metallic Gray color, and was wondering if anyone knew what type of cleaning product is best for this color?

Sounds like you need new disc pads to me. If you drive it like that for too long, the rotors will score and have to be either reconditioned or replaced if there is not enough meat let on them.

I recently purchased bose multimedia speakers. I can plug the iPhone into the control and the sound is phenomenal. When I plug the USB into my laptop (HP6535b) the speakers install, but the sound is...

xp was never designed to do that ever. my guess... and is true in vast cases with XP , XP is DEAD, as will be getting new drivers for new devices, see?
When I plug the USB what does that mean.

all i can tell as would HP, take that USB thing above
go the the makers web site, see that software, there,
do they have XP software, NO.
i bet they do not support XP

not only that all said was,.
bose multimedia speakers.

what does that mean>/ its non specific so is useless. input
the only word there good id BOSE(tm)
they make lots of things, most things do not run on any XP
unless real lucky,

my guesss is the BOSE(tm) has its own sound chip
and needs its own SOUND chip driver to work
and if even you had that chip driver,
XP would get real confused having 2 sound chips in one PC
try this , go to DM , device manager,
and turn off the normal sound chip from HP.
on windows 10 we click the task bar speaker and kill the onboard sound chip that way, letting head phones USB work.
or USB external devices that have, 2nd chip.
see? running 2 chips at same time (sound) is never going to work
like having 2 TV's playing same time, chaos.

Thanks for your interest - no great problem. I do have a replacement unit and the old one is merely a backup if anyone knew of an easy fix. Cheers
