    Try google. Good brand tho I don't kno that specific model. I assume you've done the basics and isolated if it's one or both channels etc

    I'm not fully up there with this kind of thing but it seems to stop working on one speaker every now and then and when I start fiddling with the wires and plugs on the back of it it would sometimes start going again but not any more so far I took it to work and pulled the top off and blew all the dust out of it I'm guessing a problem with a connection

    Sounds like connection, have you tried new speaker wires?? Depending how old they are they may need replacing, try a couple of meters on each first before shelling outdone meters. Where are you based

    dry joint on the amplifier module where its soldered into the pcb (assuming it uses a module rather than discrete components)
    but........................if you aint sure what ya doing then you could make it worse or have a shocking experience or both.

    Its got new speaker wires I'm 40 min northwest of dorkland I guess I need to take the circuit board out that the speakers are hooked up to and have a look at it it doesn't go at the moment so can't really make it worse

    What does the module look like the bits I recognise are a transformer circuit boards and some heat sinks with something mounted on them

    Like others said its probably a connection.. Sounds like it will be at or near where the speakers are hooked up to the amp so you probably don't need to play with any circuit board too much

    Could even be as simple as a shit joint onto output posts ie the wriggle and it worked thing..... But my money is on mikee with a dry joint somewhere.....
    Please excuse spelling, as finger speed is sometimes behind brain spped........ Or maybe the other wayy.....
