anyone got some suggestions for regular poweramp cleaning/maintenance?
Dust is the enemy of all electronics. It never hurts to open up you amp periodically and hit with a blast from one of those pressurized aerosol cans. Check power cord for any problems. Store in a dry place.
Also make sure you clean the fan(s) (and filter if it has one). Don't blow the dust off the fan into the amp, open it up and blow out.
canned air can make your voice sound deeper. helium obviously does the opposite. Don't blame me if you pass out doing this and get brain damage.
If you have a small attachment for your vacuum, then use that to go over the fan grill once a month or so.
Here is something I found out. Do it more often if you live near railroad tracks. We used to live about a quarter mile from a railroad crossing, and were always having prolems with our computer fan. Turns out there is graphite in the air from the railroad tracks, and trains going by. So, you may want to clean your amp more often if you live near a train station, or railroad tracks.
Interesting. I live near railroad tracks and the fan on my video card just died for no apparent reason.
Probably graphite monsters chewing on the cables. Acutally, the graphite could be shorting out the fan itself.
wonder what all that graphite is doing to people's lungs??
thanks for the suggestions btw.
