J/l 500/1 amp

I bought this amp and man when it was working; it was the best amp i ever owned. this past week it started cutting in an out. i looked at the amp and the green power light was cutting in and out. i figured with the bass the wires might be coming loose. i un hooked all the wires and reconnected them. it seemed to work, but then started to repeat and when it did; this would become a regular problem... what should i do, i hate factory sound.

I'd lay you odds that you are driving the wrong speaker impedence and that you may have damaged the amp. This is most often true when you improperly bridge into the wrong load. If you are lucky enough to not have damaged the unit then you need to get your speaker load right at once before you fry it, if you do indeed have the wrong speaker load (too much).

Your best bet would be to use as a source to get your Black and Decker parts and than use their tool repair forum and submit this question. They have licensed mechanics that repair these things all the time, so I'm sure they could put together an easy fix.

> recently bought it & used it for a little less than a week

Then, it should be covered both by the store's own guarantee (7 days? 1 month?) and by the (one-year?) manufacturer's warranty.

Exercise the warranty, and get it replaced.

I need a replacement bulb for a Vector VEC139BW 3 million candlepower spotlight. Can any one tell me where I can get one.

I just bought 3 from "The Bulb Man" 2207 Elmwood Ave. Buffalo, N.Y. 14216 (716) 875-2852. He had to order, they came in in about a week. They work fine but bulb has no blue tint, I'm starting to look for the area light when I found this. Bulb, base & wire is all one piece. I think I paid $12-14 for all three a few weeks ago.

Paid $50.00 for Shark model G1405Z. It lasted 3 weeks.

WalMart would have replaced it with or without a receipt for an identical priced product. You can take the bad one back with the receipt and ask for a refund, provided they ARE identical. The barcode is scanned onto the receipt.
