Help needed Output Transistors blown
 
Hi can anyone help me please?
i have a Non branded Amp called Pro-240
4 Transistors have blown
and 1 resistor
the numbers on the transistors are A940
only info i can get is this
A490 C2073
TO-220 PNP

http://216.239.59.104/search?q=cache...df/To-220/A940(TO-220).pdf%3FPHPSESSID%3D597428d6d3003a87c0d6ecd0718 50b87+transistor+A940&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=1&gl=uk&lr= lang_en

i am strugeling to get this in the UK or find an equivilant

please help

Thanks

What's the power output of this amp and do you have the circuit?

This is an odd transistor ( The full part no is 2SA940 ) for a power amplifier it looks like its supposed to drive a TV or Monitor. Full data sheet at: http://pdf1.alldatasheet.com/datashe...EC/2SA940.html


The C2073 which I assume is the NPN complementary part - again full part no is 2SC2073 data at: http://pdf1.alldatasheet.com/datashe...C/2SC2073.html

This may help you find replacements

A970 is in fact 2SA970. You could substitute it with MJE15031 which is easily available and a very reliable device.

Hi thanks for reply
i do have the PCB out and can post a picture of the circuit
the other numbers on the Transistors that have blown are as follows
There is a Italic F at the top am assuming thats the brand
then in a embosed circle (U) then 537
then underneath A940

this is all the info i have on the amp

Hi the 2SC2073 is NPN like you say but the original is PNP will this matter?
thanks

This of course was a typo.

You need to replace NPN with NPN and PNP with PNP.
So, previous posts is still valid. You can replace 2SA940 with MJE15031.

If the amp doesn’t contain 2SC2073, you need not to bother.
If it has, MJE15030 is a good substitute.

Hi thanks for that
there is a few variations in teh data sheet but with MJE15031 as the Mhz is 30 but on my A940 it is 4 will these mater

thanks

It could be that the amp will oscillate and you will need a scope to watch if it does. A schematic would be real handy but I'm afraid you will not have that.
As for now, try posting a clean picture of the amps inners, concentrate on the output stage.
