I replaced 2 of the rail caps in this amp since they were vented..

I checked all power supply fets and outputs all test fine..


When i power it up it goes in and out of proteection over and over...


Any ideas?

i just fixed one.i think u might have to check the rectifiers.

If you connect the current limiter inline, does it still go in and out of protect?

Is this the amp?

If not, post a photo of the board.

this the one i got.

Its the same board as Tim posted..

If i hook a current limiter in-line it will go in and out of protection also..


If i remove the rectifiers it will power up and idle perfectly for hours

Ok somethings not right here..

I get + 80.4 volts of rail

And only -24 volts of rail

Perry Babin 28th August 2011 09:26 PM

Do you get the same voltage if you use the negative speaker terminal as the reference?

mike49504 29th August 2011 01:16 AM

Yes..

Perry Babin 29th August 2011 01:33 AM

Assuming that the rectifiers are center tapped, do you see the same voltage swing on the outer legs of both the positive and negative rectifiers?

Do you read 0 ohms between the negative speaker terminal and the secondary center tap of the transformer?

mike49504 29th August 2011 01:44 AM

ok i replaced 1 of the rectifiers and now i get both + - 71 volts of rail..


Amp still goes in and ot of protection though
