Death of Ibanez promethean :( whit photo... IS ALIVE!!!
Only for share the pain!
this day, whit a lot of Gas and tons of happines, buy one Ibanez Promethean P300H :hyper:
The amp sound very fine! but... 20 min playing... the amp have a heart attack.
in my experience, the power supply capacitor is broken. First sound like descomprecion, and some ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ (like fried egg)... the smoke are very nice...
some pick :(:(:(
:crying: :crying: :crying:
Now can do two ways.
I buy the last amp in stock, so cannot change the amp for another. the opcion is my money back... :( and not have amp. because this is a warrantee. :hmm:
The seller can repair the amp. If is the capacitor... is not problem, but is a new amp... the capacitor can broken in years not in one moment :hmm:
repair, or money back... that is the question :hmm:
If you loved the way the amp sounded, then repair. But, there are a lot of great sounding amps out there these days.
There are a fair few differently branded near enough the same amps about.
There isn't much to repair in this amp, with multilayer PCB and surface mount components.
It is otherwise a fine amp.
If they're offering a refund, take it and spend the money on a different amp.
yeah... i know are more amp... but in chile don have many option :(
searchin in the web of the seller... the next amp in price is the Hartke HA2500 (know this is exelent opcion) but the price is to high between both.
Get a GK MB200 or TC BH250.
that is creasy...
now, plug the amp, and work!
Im Sure... is the capacitor... i see this fail before.
Did you buy it to a Chilean store? Just wondering what could happens if you plug a 110V 60hz amp to a 220 50hz power outlet.
However amps usually do die right away, if they are going to, when they are new.
Get your money back and go by the same amp at a retailer who has one in stock?
now the very funny, si the amp is start on! wort about 5-10 min and a irregular static noisse is appear.
Whatever you do, do NOT keep. It is not going to be reliable. I would not try to get it fixed either. She's done.
The amp has problems....do not keep it.
Although, if there are switches in the back, make sure they are set for 220V, 50hz.....next time...on your new amp.
I would get my money back. Then buy another amp you like in Chile. Even if it's another Promethian, I would not keep this same one.
Lo siento, amigo...tu Promethean esta muerto! Tienes que obtener un otro amp nuevo pronto!
Januchito, me parece que nuestra ley indica que si puedes seguir haciendo uso de la garantia!
PD: Audiomusica sucks!
Edit: Acabo de leer la ultima parte de tu post, compra el Hartke.. no te arrepentiras de gastar esas otras 50 lucas!
(los malditos me dicen que estara en 10 dias :scowl:)
This morning visit "audiomusica" the store where buy the amp. And said, them need check the amp, before do anything, by technician, because, the burn smell, need a specialist check if the problem is a effective from factory or I was do something for broken. Is the company rules for warranty.
(said the damned have 10 days for chek the amp :scowl:)
Si, como contaba mas arriba, deje el equipo para que su tecnico lo revise e indique si la falla es del equipo, o la cause yo.
Well, untill now, never have any problem whit this store. Bur said in his face, falabella (one departament store) change the product at moment!
leave the amp for the technician check and inform if the fail is from factory or I caused the fault.
Uno escucha a menudo historias de gentes que "queman" sus amplificadores... tengo que decir que es un poquito gracioso que a usted le ha pasado eso!
Pero de verdad, qué pena! Ese amplificador es bueno. (Fue bueno). Espera hasta que ellos te contacten; pero en serio, comprate otro. Hay muchos mejores en el mercado. Buena suerte!
Is there any way they can loan you an amp until they find the problem with your Promethean?
