    Default LED done burnt out

    A blue LED went out on my ASL monoblock.

    1. I opened it up and it does not look like it affects anything else?

    2. Where could I get a replacement LED?

    Thanks,

    Scott

    Not sure about the voltage; you can shoot an email to divertech customer service and they will know and maybe have them (I am assuming the amp works??)

    It could also be a bad connection to the led...

    I had the power led on my Spectral stop firing. When I spoke to the engineer at Spectral he said to leave it be unless the thing not lighting is driving me nuts. It isn't so I'm just letting it be.

    Thanks HTrookie,

    I guess I will open it up again and try to fix it. It has always looked different than the other one.

    Another question. There did not seem to be anything holding it in place. Did you find the same when you opened your up?

    Is there a safe way to open it up and power it up to see if the led is working rather than trying something and putting it all back together again?

    I took the tubes out and took the bottom cover off.

    The LED is powered off of the blue and green wires with the shrink wrap going toward the front plate, of course.

    Scott,

    I would not recommend you power it up if open, unless you really know what you are doing....lots of volts in there (as in FATAL)

    Mine were in place with some kind of glue.

    That is exactly why I asked. Fatal is bad. Burnt out LED not so bad.

    I will email Divertech.

    Thanks

    Watch out for the costs, Spectral charges $120 just to have the unit come through the front door.

    If you can find out the voltage and ampheres and possibly the degree of light refraction of the LED, it should not be a hard repair at all. [if you have a soldering iron]

    Can you get ahold of a parts list or service schematic?

    I have the schematic that was provided in the manual. I can read blue prints like a champ but I am not up to speed on the electrical values and all the associated factors of electrical schematics.

    It actually looks like an easy fix if I know what the right LED is to match the other one in my other monoblock.

    Look on the lower left hand side of the schematics. Do you see a log, or legend that lists about 5- 20 parts?

    One thing you could do, is grab a DVM and measure the voltage of the working LED. Then, if you know what you are doing, you could get the ampheres of the same working LED and then you will have the info. that you want to make the repair.

    If you are unsure of the light refraction degree of the LED matching the working LED, then just order two of the same degree LED's and install.

    Yes,

    I have the parts list and the part is 100UF/16V from best that I can tell.

    That's a capacitor, not an LED.

    You will be looking for something in between usually around 4.5v to maybe 12 volts. Very low ampheres. It usually does not list the degree of light refraction, unless the engineer was very anal, which is almost never the case.

    OK,

    Thanks for all your help. I will look again on Parts Express and I will open it the amp up again to get a better look.

    Here in my area in brooklyn they have some tv repair shops that fix amps cheap, I had a unit serviced and it cost me $15.00 ,
    So look around you might find it cost less to have the led replaced the right way without breaking the bank...

    Just got an e-mail from Tash at Divertech and he is going to send me a new blue LED assembly.

    Another great example of above and beyond customer service.

    I still have not seen a replacement LED yet and my other mono blocks LED followed suit tonight.

    At least they look the same tonight. It bothered me that one was lit and the other one was out. Problem temporarily solved.
