Headfoot said:. I bought it on eBay and the guy was a liar; the listing said the item worked fine. It crackles, hisses, and the left channel doesn't work at half of the volume settings it has a left and right channel volume control built in. It's supposed to put out watts per channel into 8 ohms, but it can hardly put out 40 before it starts having problems. Up to about 40 watts it sounds absolutely terrible, the highs are very harsh and there is no bass.
I'm trying to get money from the guy for the repair since he lied to me. I just need to know where to repair. When it comes to electronics, I have absolutely no grasp. I connect a battery to a lightbulb and think that that's great. That is weird, that would explain things though. Thanks again for the help, now I just need to see if this guy will pay the price. I'll call down to Hi Fi Sound and see if he'll do it, and if not I'll call the Kenwood service centers and see how much it costs.
Thread starter hspalm Start date Mar 13, Search Forums New Posts. Thread Starter hspalm Joined Feb 17, Hello all forum users. After repairing a couple of my colleges tv's by simply replacing bulging caps on their power supplies, I got thrown this massive amplifier at me to try and fix.
The message was "either you fix it, or I'll throw it", and I like a challenge. I'm mostly fond of digital electronics, but I do know some basic analog and thought this might give me some valuable experience, if I got it to work.
The amplifier is made in Norway and weighs at least 20 kg, no information to be found online. One of my main concerns is that it is normally driven by a preamplifier, which I don't have. The input signals connects by a XLR connector.
To test the amplifier of course not final test to trace and detact signals on the PCB, is it okay to use my signal generator positive on the positive polarity terminal of the XLR, and the signal generator ground on the returning terminal?
I guess you need to know what the problem here is, and it's really just one dead channel. Completely dead. So far I've identified the power supply, and each channels amplifier PCBs with the driver transistors and output transistors. Any hints or tips before I go further on this! Thanks in advance!

Some guidance on high end audio amplifier repair?
Is the factory closed? Does anyone know of a shop capable of repairing these things?Top 10 WORST Guitar Amplifiers EVER!
I meant to post this while I was at the shop, but I had to leave unexpectedly to put out a fire and I don't the model of the thing, except it has a sort-of graphic EQ with neat little LEDs on the fader knob. I can get the model of the thing in the morning, if it will help.
