ARCAM Alpha CD service manual

I am looking for the service manual for the arcam alpha cd player (the original one). I need to fix the digital output.



amc184 2nd November 2008 09:28 AM

Yeah, I have it. PM me your email address, and I'll mail it to you.

Thanks Anton. I have send you a PM.


amc184 2nd November 2008 12:04 PM

I have sent the manual to your email. I hope you account allows large attachment, as the manual is almost 5MB.

Anyway, whats wrong with the digital output? Have you got a 'scope to test it with?

... and I just checked my email, and the manual bounced. You're going to have to give me a better email address.

I have send a PM with a new adress
Nothing on the digital output...

The first thing to check is whether you have any output on pin 14 of the SAA7220. Apart from this, the digital output circuit is just passives.

Resent you the SM.

Thanks. I will open the cd player next week to fix it.
Thanks you for all the informations.

If it doesn't work out with getting the service manual from amc184, simply email Arcam themselves - they are quite nice and will give out service manuals in PDF if you ask :)

Yes, they are great for stuff like that, that where I got the SM from. bouba1234's second email worked, so I think its sorted anyway.
