One thread up.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

Carver Repair in Ontario

Hey Dave.

I have been talking to Ontario Audio Video. Their number is: 1 (905) 791-2020. Ask for Rick. I think he is the head technician.

Good luck.

Anybody know where I can send it?

Thanks



I wonder when Sunfire owners like me will be in this same predicament, only worse, because there is no tech data on the outside regarding Sunfire equipment, as there is for Carver equipment.

Re: Now What?

Are you kidding.... at $600 a pop, they will fix them forever !!!
1 tek working on 1 unit for 8 hours... ain't no where clost to $600

They will make more profit off a repair, than selling a new amp !!!

Re: Now What?

Tell me how it went "boom". If it went "boom" in a particular way (wide open triac fried the field coil), your technician is correct. Parts are unobtanium. Otherwise, most parts are available or suitable substitutes can be found. I think the best thing to do is to find out from your tech why he says it is unfixable (i.e., which part), and then call Roland.

Re: Now What?

The ONLY thing I have heard Rolland can't fix, is the Lightstar Preamp, and a couple of the prototype runs made at the end of Carver.... Your repair guy is full of shit... "HE" can't fix it... He probably needs parts, and Rolland won't sell parts.

Re: Now What?

I thought that only the Magnetic Field Coil and filter capacitors were unavailable but that there was a workaround for the filter caps by piggybacking 2 together to get the value needed. Also, if this unit is in Canada, then Anatech in Georgetown knows how to fix these beasts and is very close to Toronto.
Why let facts or common sense get in the way of your opinions.

Re: Now What?

I had no problem getting electrolytic caps for my M-500, and they use all the same ones as the "T"

I think the OP was from 1996? The M-1.5t is the unit that had dual caps; they switched to separate caps and a mounting block when the dual caps became unavailable
