Question about Harman Kardon SIGNATURE 2.1 Amplifier

1 Answer

Amp problems Have owned this amplifier for 7 years and all of sudden it will not stay on. When switched on by the signature 2.0 preamp the amp will power up and come on for about 10 to 30 seconds and then switch off with the status led flashing amber to red and back. Owners manual says check for shorted speaker connection. Have checked all speakers several times and even disconnected them. Problem still occurs.

From the above symptom, it show that the output stage of the amplifier have some problem.The protection cct come in to cut off the amp. when the output shorted or have Dc voltage.( this is to prevent further damage to the amp. & speaker ).If you know how to repair , just check on the pwr transistor (with heat sink )or else send it to the repair center.hope it help.

Hi, I have a Marantz PM7200 KI Signature, This morning sadly realised that the amp is gone, There is no light on, something like no power. Firstly, I look for the fuse socket but there is no socket on...


hi,
First of all check the power at the socket to which you have connected the amp.If you are not aware of electronics, then do not go for a test with an amp like KI signature.
it will have a fuse in its inside. its only blow off if there is some fault inside the its circuitry. consult someone who is well equipped for the same.
ok

I am using a Lexicon CX-7 Power Amplifier in conjunction with a Lexicon MV-5 Processor. I have 7 B&W Speakers (2 Fronts, 2 Sides, 2 Rears and one Center). I also have a REL Stentor III subwoofer....


I assume you're wrestling with the choice of using its onboard amp fed by the MV-5 or driving it from the CX-7's unused channel.

Of course either way will work. I'd go with the preamp-to-REL method as the REL engineers undoubtedly gave some thought to the amp design for the price paid.

Attach it to the Sub1 Preamp out

I have a Harman Kardon Signature 2.1 amplifier that wont start. Its LED flashes red and yellow indicating that something is wrong. Does anyonehave any idea why?


I work on power amplifiers and I can offer a few suggestions
The flashing light means the amplifier is in "Protect" mode.
This could mean one of two things: 1. The speakers are not connected properly or, 2. There is a component failure in one of the output amp sections.
It might be as easy as a blown fuse in the circuit that powers one of the amp sections.
Not knowing your technical background , I can't say much more about opening the unit and checking for certain things

My amp suddenly stopped working last night. As


You have a bad amplifier section and your unit will need to be repaired by a technician. I would disconnect the speakers to prevent possible damage. In some cases components in line with the transistors will be bad in the amplifier also. There is no way to tell without electrically testing the unit in shop. Estimated repair cost would be in the 60 to 80 dollar range depending on the number of parts that are bad and the labor rate in your area.

Contact the Sunfire tech folks . They've responded quickly for me.
Probably not in the power amp. It's whatever youre plugging the MIC into.

Heybrook signature pre / power amp data sheets


You can get some Heybrook manuals from here. They will cost ya but...:) Signature amps are often rebuilds with extra quality of another related model. So you may be able to get the circuit of a different model to match yours:) Worth a try
