Amp6b, fault in output 1
I've been trying to make a post on the 41hz forum, but after using 3 different email addresses, I don't get an activation mail. So I'll post my problem here instead:
I've been working the whole weekend to assemble and troubleshoot my first amp 6b. I've been very careful in the assembly, and thought I had some pretty darn good shiny concave solders.
At first the amp would only play on channel 2. I then went through all the solders again, and cleaned the board, only to measure 12v on the cathode of d6 -, and the amp not playing at all. (perhaps the protection of the chip kicks in when rail voltage is coming through a faulty D10?) I've been through various troubleshooting threads, but nothing seems to help. Here's some data that may help in finding the problem:
5.1v over C2
0v over R7
8.2v over c5
2.2v to ground after input caps
12v to gnd on - side of L1, 0.1v on + side
5.9v to gnd on - side of L2, 5.9v on + side
5.8v to gnd on output 2 +, 5.9v for -
0.2v to gnd on output 1 +, 0.1v for -
Measure on cathode to gnd:
5.9v on D8
5.9v on D7
12v on D6
0.2v on D5
I've used this method by Scatchy to check the input paths, and the input resistors seemed ok. over the inductors it read 2 ohm on L2 + & -, and 2 ohm on L1 + and unable to measure on -.
I believe the problem is a fried chip, due to the voltage difference (possibly a short-circuit around pin 26), and possibly a bad solder on L1. The measured rail voltage on output 1 suggest a fried diode, how could this be?
Hope you guys can help me out, anything would be much appreciated!
Here are some pics of the board:
