TA-N9000ES Amp - Standby light constantly blinks - no sound
Don't know if this is a problem with my amp or my TA-E9000ES processor but the standby light on my TA-N9000ES amp blinks continuously and I have no output from the Amp. Have had many problems with the processor and suspect that is the problem but the owners manual and service manuals for the amp give no clue as to what a blinking standby indicator light is indicating. Does anyone know?
The flashing light is indicating that a fault has been detected, and it is staying in "protect mode". First disconnect all cables from the processor (except the power cord) and then power up the processor. This will eliminate the possibility of a shorted cable or a problem with any connected components. f the light still flashes, there is an internal problem and the processor will require profesional service.

Hi the auto standby function MIGHT have been activated to disable PRESS MENU BUTTON ON REMOTE SCROLL DOWN TO SETUP & PRESS OK. SCROLL DOWN TO OTHER SETTINGS & PRESS OK ....SCROLL down to AUTO STANDBY AND PRESS THE LEFT & RIGHT ARROWS To SET THE OPTION TO OFF ....GOOD LUCK
Sounds like the main system control-chroma IC fault. These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power led, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given.
If the light blinks you need not check the fuse, its an indication that your amp has gone into protection mode due to an output failure. You will have to take it to an authorized service center because the S-master chip is a surface mounted device which needs a specialized equipment for de soldering and soldering.Even an ordinary service technician might refuse to handle this work.
It's just a big amp with no controls you would change during normal operation. There's no remote. You don't name any source or if you even HAVE one attached. THAT would be a good place to look for missing sound.

an amp of this size generates alot of heat internally when in use as these use mosfet ICs and can get very hot. your problem is most definately dry solder joints and possibly quite a few at that. i've repaired quite a few sony surround receivers with similar problems and have all been down to dry solder joints.
