AQ 2200 in protection
 
A friend gave me this amp to look at. Apparently he was "pop testing" (with a 12v batt) his subs for proper polarity and didn't realize the amp was hooked up.

Needless to say after he hooked it back up it goes straight into protect.

I've checked the PS and output transistors. They all appear fine. The center leg of the PS transistors have 12v, pins 1 and 3 have 0.000v. I have no power to the TL074CN's.

Perry, I also checked

Q225 (C3198) pin 1: 0.000v Pin 2: 0.000v pin 3: -0.070v
Q226 (A1266) pin 1: 12.4v Pin 2: 0.000v Pin 3: 12.4v

It pulls no current until I hook up remote then it jumps to around 1.7a then goes into protect and drops back to hardly no current.

I have both power and ground on the KA7500 but nothing else on any of the pins I could get to with my probes.

What should I check next?

Thanks in advance guys.

Well if you have no gate voltage on the power supply fets or regulated voltage to the op-amps it would appear the supply is not functioning. The KA7500 sends the signal to the drivers and the drivers to the supply fets.

Have you checked the gate signal on a scope?

Deadly Sones 15th January 2013 12:34 AM

yes I did. Only have 12v on center leg. everything else seems to be shut off or in protect

seankane 15th January 2013 12:38 AM

Did you view the drive signal on a o-scope?

If you do not have a gate signal the power supply fets are not being driven.

I am assuming you have an o-scope?

Yes I do, it reads nothing. There is no drive signal.

Deadly Sones 15th January 2013 12:56 AM

So I must have done something to the remote... cause now I have the following readings:

KA7500bd

pin1: 6.26
pin 2: 2.521
pin 3: 4.26v
pin 4: 3.567
pin 5: 1.536
pin 6: 3.644
pin 7: 0
pin 8: 13.14
pin 9: 0
pin 10: 0
pin 11: 13.14
pin 12:13.14
pin 13: 4.96
pin 14: 4.96
pin 15: 4.96
pin 16: 0v

Still no ps gate drive signal though...

the only thing I see out of place is this...

Deadly Sones 15th January 2013 01:38 AM

Also on Q225 I now have 0.000v on pin 1, 13.4 on pin 2, and 0.000v on pin 3

Perry Babin 15th January 2013 01:45 AM

Both pin 1 and pin 4 are too high. What's driving those pins?

Deadly Sones 15th January 2013 01:47 AM

I have no idea... I'll have to look into it in the morning. Thanks Perry.
