Brennan JB7 Digital Jukebox Amp shutting down.

I recently bought a reconditioned Brennan JB7 on eBay. Although the experience wasn't a very happy one I was eventually satisfied with the sound and its usefulness. However, twice now it has shut itself down. After unplugging it from the power supply it came back to life, but this is a bit worrying. Has anyone had a similar issue and if so, what are your thoughts?

    Belated thanks. It's under the bed at the moment, but I'll see if I can find a local repair person.

Overheating would be the primary cause.
Bad Caps possibly or even a dry joint on a component.

The company is still going strong. They have a contact page, I would if they do 'refurbishment' or repair.

    In fact it's a JB7 and not a juke box. So, if this persists where would I take it for repair? Fingers crossed, of course, these are rare events, though it's a nuisance having to disconnect the power for a few minutes, but I've been there with TVs etc.

    Sorry - you've already indicated that I should try Brennan!

    It is termed a Digital Jukebox because of its internal hard drive which allows you to copy CDs onto it. Therefore it works as a jukebox with no moving parts.

    Any good audio repair technician should be able to perform repairs, or reach out to Brennan as suggested. They must have a service network.

    or local. If you are anywhere near Milton Keynes, try Robin Rushton at Rushton Sound Services. Great guy and only does professional and high end audio. I knew him well in the mid 80s. He is found via Google. allow a couple of hours, he can talk the hind leg off a donkey :>D

I have a peavey Bandit 112. When I bought it the input wasn’t working which I took apart and fixed. Now when I press the button to turn on distortion it makes this loud but terrible squeal through the...

Check the wiring from your input jack. A short in the connection to the pc board in the amp could cause this .
However, are you sure both the supersat and post volume are turned down to reasonable settings? If your distortion channel is too loud, it will feed back and squeal through the speaker.

My Rockola Tempo 1, just stopped mid record. Previously the carousel would slow down/hesitate at a certain point when selecting, but never stopped. Switched it on occasionally, with no movement.

I would put money on the belt snapping. 5 years is about right. Especially if you do not use it often. The slow down and hesitate is even more indication of a belt getting hard and then slipping and snapping. They need to keep moving to stay soft. Get a new belt and you will be likely good to go.

My amp may have been left on with one speaker unplugged and is now not working. What's the likely diagnosis?

does the speaker still work? use a 9 volt battery and do a test thump to see if the horn and woofer still work...when the power amps on these units fail most of the time they shut down.

Been given a grade 5 Rockola 160 433, need a copy of the service manual

Contact the folks at www.victoryglass.com and tell them the make and model of your jukebox. They will have the manual set for around $50. Also, they bought out the entire Rockola factory parts inventory. So if by chance you needed Rockola parts, they would have it.

I have recently purchased a set of M-Audio Studiophile BX8a Deluxe studio monitors. I can't register them for warranty because I can't find any serial number on the monitors or box that they came...

Call M-Audio and ask them about it... It is POSSIBLE that your speakers are counterfeit. It has been happening with high value audio equipment. There has been some failures of this product as well. Also contact the company you bought them from. There is a lot of grey market stuff on Ebay... I hope that wasn't your source.
