Hi all,

I just purchased a Linn AV5103 pre amp and Linn AV 5125 Amp for a grand total of $10. The owner's son, and I quote, "Over-drove it" and damaged "something". I haven't plugged in the unit's to investigate yet. I don't expect the pre-amp is damaged, but perhaps the amplifier is.

Does anyone have any knowledge of what the problem could be, if I can/should repair it myself, or should/could I send it to Linn? I'm not terribly interested in spending a lot of cash on it. But it would be a fun project to repair.

Thanks!

You haven't turned it on. You are wondering if you can fix it without knowing what is wrong with it. You wonder if someone can provide knowlege for a problem you haven't encountered and can't describe. I don't know what to say. Plug it in. If it doesn't work throw it away. You only spent $10.

Are you sure he said "Over-drove it" as opposed to "Drove-over it" ?

Thanks for the super-helpful response... I was asking if anyone knew about a common problem, which clearly you don't.

It was a bad fuse.
