Question about Crown CE1000 2-Channel Amplifier

Open Question

I have a crown ce1000 and it has stopped working. The fault lights are a solid red color. When I plug it into any type of input device it will carry the audio signal but not amplify the sound. In simple terms I can hear whatever is playing over it (loud enough where I can easily talk over it), but I can't turn the sound up or down. It obviously needs to be repaired, but do any of you have any idea to what extent it needs to be repaired. The reason I ask because the repairs may cost more than the price of buying a new one. It's 50 dollars here just for someone to look at it for an hour + additional parts. What would you do? Thanks.

    Its not worth taking to a store for repairs because the cost will be more than its worth. What are the chances you think I could read up on it and attempt to fix it myself? Do you have any recommendations on where I should start?

I believed you got 1 or 2 electrolytic capacitors were dry out so it missed 17V + or -- regulators in the preamp sections that why both side light are on If you go to 1 of the service center Crown in your town it would cost you between $100 to $200 I use Australian dollars

Unfortunately Crown amps are not the easiest to repair as they utilize multiple levels of amplification. Since you saw a flash, a resistor probable smoked, I would recommend that you bring this to an authorized service center.

SOURCE: CROWN CE1000- slips into fault immediately after connection

if ur output power amp is defective u will have that problem - meaning the moment u connect load across it it will go into circuit protection to limit/stop excessive output current. make sure the speaker terminals are connected to +/- output terminals. in bridge mode use only channel 1 and that too with 4 ohms speaker only otherwise amp will clip. considering all connections are okay if it still clips when speaker is connected, u have a faulty power amp section. this the way ur amp is designed

It's very likely that the main power amp section has a faulty part on it that is presumably causing an overload. You should check the devices on the main heat sink of the amp section.

2 speakers and 1 powered sub


The red and black connectors are the right (red) and left channels for the speakers, so they should connect. However the sub needs a single RCA type phono socket, which should be marked "sub" etc. If it hasn't got one of them you will have problems connecting the powered sub.

Fan running


Yes, many of the pro sound amps throttle the fan based on an internal temperature sensing device.

Fan running


This is a very sophisticated amp and it will turn the fan on at various speeds when it feels the need for it. Of course, if it's running REALLY hot, going into thermal protection and/or posting a fault you might take a look at it to see if it CAN turn (no obstructions).

You have bad connections at the inputs. If you can solder, carefuilly remove the board that has the input connector and resolder the jack onto the PC board. This should be done ASAP as with the connection loose like that the circuit board traces are soon to break.

Hi waveybnc

The fan has failed, or is clagged up with dust. Remove it and clean it first. But best to just replace it. They are not that special and there is not alot that stops them from working. You can get a replacement device for the amp from Crown direct, or once you know its dimensions and power requirements, from here.

Thanks for using FixYa. Please rate my advice to you here as FixYa if it helps you.

Cuold be the final power amp ic. Might be imput transistors to that channel. Its possible to have a cold solder joint on pcb.
Look close at board with good light and a mag. glass to see if any foggy looking joints and heat up with soldering iron then dab with fresh solder.
Good Luck
