Turn the car got an E-02 on the amp, tried turning the car on and off, checking all the connections... nothing.
downloaded the manual and looked it up and it sais to disconnect power to the amp, reset it, and it should be good. Said it occurs when the speaker leads touch??
They definitely touched so that could be the problem. I'll try it out tomorrow and see.
I thought it was broken for good. So that was music to my ears.
thats the manual atleast. I will do some more searching online see if I can dig up anything.Originally Posted by iApexYou bought it new from somewhere right? If it's less than 1 year old then it should definitely be covered.Originally Posted by x1lethat price is an absolute joke.Originally Posted by iApexJust got back from the shop, they put it on the bench and said it was broken, it's in protection mode and wont come out. They said it would be $40 to send it in and IF it can be fixed, it would cost $100-$200+
The Excelon series have 2 year warranty, would this amp still be covered under that?
and it should still be covered. it is definitely less than a year old.
See if you can round up the warranty information. Idk how comfortable you feel giving it to me but other than that, we're out of options.
Just let me know man, i'm not in any rush, and I usually respond to PM's within minutes of them being sent because it's forwarded to my cell.
I'm going to go to bed now though so if you respond tonight i'll reply around 9 30 tomorrow morning.Originally Posted by iApexThats a **** shame you couldn't find it. But you have a lot better chance finding it then I ever would you know?Originally Posted by x1leI searched and could not locate any original purchase info.Originally Posted by iApexHey, unless you have everything together for the warranty process today, I'm going to have to just ask for a refund because my due date got pushed back and I'm not going to have as much as I originally thought. I wont have the time to process the warranty and get another one shipped out to me.
Sorry about this it's very unfortunate on both accounts but look at the bright side, if you find the warranty you will be able to get paid for going through all of this. (because you can sell a new one for more than a used one)
And I hate to say it, but do you think it's fair to receive a full refund after you say the pos and neg speaker leads touch and put the amp into protection?
....so I will be out of shipping costs and the cost of the amp...
Yes I know they touched but I don't think that was the reason for failure, like I said it wasn't even performing nearly what it was supposed to from the second I pulled it out of the package and hooked it up so I believe there was something faulty with it to begin with. (intentionally or not, i have no idea) but thats what I think. Plus I touched the speaker leads on my other amp just to test it and it didn't fry that one... so I don't think that was the main cause of failure.
It's unfortunate on both accounts and I don't think you should be out any money and neither should I but unfortunate situations happen and we have to make peace about them. You are not out the cost of the amp if you find the warranty information, if you can't find it then thats kind of your fault you know?
How about you give me back the total cost minus the shipping probably around $15, $20 so what? $145-$150? and I'll ship it back to you at my expense via USPS delivery confirmation exactly how you packed it to me.
I think you being the original owner you shouldn't have a problem getting it fixed or replaced.Originally Posted by x1le
I have a video of the amp working in my own car, literally the same day I pulled it out and packaged it up so I could get my new equipment in there.
All I can say is that the amp was completely functional when I sent it out. No offense, but I have no choice but to assume user error in this case. I know it was packaged well for shipping. If it arrived looking like it was kicked down the street, then that'd be another story.
I'm not a retail store. I don't offer a warranty on items I sell. I sell things here and there to get a little extra money and pass some stuff along, and go out of my way to help someone whenever I can. Had a bunch of transactions, never had one go bad yet, except for now I suppose. I just don't feel like a refund is my obligation. I said I'd try my best to find some info so it could be warranty replaced, which I searched for, but unfortunately didn't find anything.
If you touched the positive and negative speaker wires, I can guarantee that is the reason the amp went into protection. You should never short the speaker wires. The spark that occurs is telling you something...
Originally Posted by iApexSo you think I'm lying then, I read up on the situation last night and came across numerous people who had speaker leads touching for days that didnt fry their amps, It clearly was not working properly when I received it even though you claim it was, there was no sparking and no fuses blown.
I understand you are not a store but you should not be able to sell faulty items to someone and claim it's okay If you refuse to give me a refund of what I requested I will be forced to seek legal action, blacken your name and end up getting my money back anyways, which I really don't want to do because I believe you are a nice guy. I'm doing this for a school project and have had many problems from people on this site when it comes to buying things I bought a sub last monday and the guy still has not shipped it... so I'm sure you can understand where I'm coming from.
I tried to help you out by recommending things and advice and always responded to you within twenty minutes whereas you take up to a day to respond to me which really is starting to bother me. I believe I have been more than compliant and it is your fault you dont have your warranty information so you can't get it replaced, anyone with minor intelligence would keep the original paperwork on a product with a 2 year warranty. And even if you lost it, you still might be able to get it processed just because you are the original owner.
I'll let CA be the judge. what are some outsiders thoughts on this?
