ampeg svt-3 pro crashdown

Posted by saso krizman on Wed, 04/24/02 - 15:07:34.


I kinda hope you can help me with this:
recently i got my hands on an Ampeg svt-3 pro but it has a problem.
Sometimes it would start OK, however, it has certain
breakdown problems which go like this:
Normally, the fan starts at high speed and slows down
a bit, and after about 10 - 12 seconds the output relay
clicks and the amp is ready to use.

In my case, the fan starts at high speed, slows down, but the relay switches on and off (collapses) after just a few seconds, and after this has been going on for a few more seconds, the main fuse blows, sometimes even the automatic fuse for the entire house section will blow and will need to be reset prior to any
other tinkering.

What should i check (lamps, 450WV capacitors, the output capacitors, or something else perhaps)?

Without a schematic, i'm as blind as a wall trying to fix this, so can you also suggest me a site which has Ampeg SVT-3 PRO schematic as i've been surfin' round
the web with little or no success in this field.

Thanks a lot.
