I'm trying to build amp from http://www.electronics-lab.com/proje...001/index.html Problem is that whem i turn on the amp the quiescent current is 0 no matter what value R11 is I don't know where the mistake could be (everywhere!), all transistors are OK, and elements are where they sould be (I checked that MANY times) __________________ .::Mlaen::.

If no you haven't got any current through the R11. Make sure that you have all expected currents in the input stage and the VAS stage. Just approximate Vbe to 0.7V and current gain to 100. With this assumption you can calculate pretty accurate. The voltage between the gates of the mosfet's should be 5-7 volts for normal mosfets and 0-2 volts for 2SK135/2SJ50 and similar "old" Hitachi types. __________________ /Per-Anders (my first name) or P-A as my friends call me Group buy: SSR03 Super Regulator Power Supply.

These should be somewhere at 0.6-1.0 volts. Maybe you got some pinout incorrect ? The current in vas should be ~20ma, with 500ohm this gives far enough voltage to open the mosfets. With a voltage of ~7v across r11, the mosfets should open. Ooops, peranders was faster than me... Mike

 11th December 2004, 12:16 PM #5 Mlaen   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Jan 2004 Location: Rijeka More problems... Yesterday when I turn on the amp nothing was going on and there was no currnet enywhere so I posted the question here and went to sleep... today I turn on the amp and R13 and R16 start to BURN?! WTF!? I did nothing diffenet than yesterday and yesterday was on for about an hour... I don uunderstand...I checked the board now and couldn't find any mistake with my eyes... I dont have any spare parts so I'll have to wait untill monday to buy them Thanx all for posting anyway... PS: Papageoff: Yes, PS is giving -+35V __________________ .::Mlaen::.
 11th December 2004, 12:30 PM #6 MikeB   diyAudio Member     Join Date: Apr 2004 Location: Gütersloh Maybe simply one of the transistors was defect ? You should measure the transistors before building, this has 2 advantages: 1, You can sort out defective ones 2, You see if pinout is different. Typically pinout is CBE, but i have seen TO92-transistors using BCE... And don't forget, the bd139/140 has a reverted pinout (compared to bigger powertransistors), it does not have BCE, it uses ECB. (order when looking to the printed side) Mike

something like this (picture)?
that's the way I'm using it...
It's when you look at him at front (side to attached to heatsink is back)

Edit:
I forgot the pic
