On 12/8 someone posted a c400.4 on CL for $100. I've always wanted this amp but stayed away for some reason. Look this morning, and its been lowered to $50. So I go to meet the guy and test the amp. The amp was flashing the thermal code and not powering up. Not sure what this means, but after all the mess he lowered the price to $20. I just couldn't refuse at that point. Even if I have to put $100 into fixing it, it was a solid purchase IMO.
The catch is, I can't figure out why its throwing the thermal flash. The main thing I noticed right away is that both 30A fuses had been replaced w/ 40A fuses. After taking it apart though, I see no evidence of any blown transistors or caps. I'm going out to get some 30A fuses and see if it helps,but I don't know what good it would do.
Anyone have any ideas?
