Caver HR-895 receiver dead / needs help.

Post by disneyjoe7 » Mon Jul 28, 2008 7:28 pm

Hello all, glad to have something Carver in the house... makes me feel part of the family :)

This is a Krama you fix it from another Polk Forum member.

Pluged in displays a 000 code?

Turned on displays 000 code?

Pulled covers found this.

+29v +.5v BAD

-20v -30v Bad?

+24v +29v Bad?

+/-35v +/-33.25v

+/-50v +/-48.50v


Can't find anything bad a far as transistors but some like a bit cooked. See pictures below.

The worst area believe theres a power resistor which was cooked here.

Other area which looks cooked but nothing found bad. Mainly the 12v regulators which look like they get warm.

Disneyjoe, sorry, but we don't have a service manual for the HR-895 unless some member happens to have one.
Why let facts or common sense get in the way of your opinions.

Well I check for any short on that +29v output, this got to the problem.

Got to work :D

I resoldered another repair on the ACCD / Hologram board for the voltage regulators. Still couldn't get that voltage up, removed any wire which was using this voltage still dead. Found a resistor which was dead / open looks like it could be removed with a wire bridge also. So this is what I did, working.

Still have the 0:00 thing what's that all about, anyone know?

Steve
