zen v4 0.66v lol no way
i have a problem where across r0 and r1 theres 1.6V
iv'e checked for inverted connections on q3 and checked my wireing.
if i leave the amp on too long the risistor will go up in smoke..
so it's hard to get a good reading on any of the other voltages
i desperetly need help here
it's my day off work and i wont be able to continue with building my amp for another 4 days unless someone helps..
maybee the power going into or going out of Q3 is the problem.
well any help would be greatly apriciated..
_ Does it oscillate, is the 1,6V plain DC or not?
- take away C6 or R16 and leave that connection open, report what happens now, voltage acrosse R0 ?
- Test if Q3 is damaged or soldered in reverse..
- nothing to lol about
- there is way, i know it.
by oscillate you mean weird sounds
no it dosent
plain dc theres about .40v or so of ac between r0
you are right there is nothing to lol about my amps nearly compleate apppart from this small problem
the other channel of the amp works fine and is running at about 1.5 amp which keeps those mosfets not so hot...
i disconected r16 voltage across r0 is now 3.20v dc more or less
i will post pictures very soon then youll have something to lol about
by the way nothing can be wrong blown i mean because the amp sounds fine it plays music ok without any strange sounds
just r0 has too many volts and will burn in flames if i leave it on for more than 10 seconds:hot: thats all
If you a) connected thinks right what you have to check as we canīt
b) Q3 is ok
c) there is no oscillations
ther should be about 0,7V between is base and emitter what is same as across R0.
there is 3V between is base and emitter of q3 with r16 disconnected
& the same when when r16 is connected
it seams to be plain dc apart from the .40v or so of ac between r0
i have no osciliscope to mesure oscilations
i will replace q3 now
you will have to replace it, and check if you made a mistake around it. And make sure to use it not reversed. There is the chance to see oscillation also with a) a DMM with frequency counter b) measuring at a place were you expect pure DC in AC mode of the DMM if it is RMS voltmeter and takes higher frequency also and not only 50Hz or so.
i replace q3 and i now have 0.7v across r0 it's a 0.5 ohm resistor which i think makes about 1.4 amp's
now i have another problem i dont think it's so bad
when i turn of the power the music stays on for 20 odd seconds (im only using 5000uf capacitors on the power supply)
q1 and q2 seem to be getting warm like they should q5 isnt but it would probably take a while for q5..
as well when i put my multimetre on where it says 42V in the schematic at the source of q5 the voltage takes 5 minuites to drain after iv'e turned the amp off.
or is this normal ?
How big are the resevoir capacitors in the power supply? And is there a path for them to discharge?
I've not built a Zen, but I do have a BoSoZ which continues to play music, gradually fading way after the mains are disconnected. I'd say it lasts a good 10 seconds.
im only using 5000uf capacitors on the power supply
