IRT60 clean channel volume problem .

Postby Polsky » Tue Jan 09, 2018 1:14 am

Hi Everybody :D
Maybe some of you had or have a problem with Volume on clean channel in your IRT amp? From some period of time I noticed that I can not fully mute volume on clean channel. I'm turning pot to zero and there is still signal going . I can play guitar and this is very audible. Not loud but audible. I exchange pot , I exchange channels switching relays ...nothing helped. I can not mute clean channel. I come to the point that I'm suspecting FX loop for this situation. After I spoke with my technician he said that this is possible that cheap installed in FX loop may bleed signal only on clean channel and somehow it will affect volume pot. Have any of you had this situation with your IRT?

So...final diagnose was very depressing . One of chip in loop circuit died and cased bleeding of signal. The problem is they are located on two main boards so I have to exchange main boards :( :( :( . I do not know if it is worthy. Probably not...and that's why I'm ordering new IRT60h .

Sorry to hear that.
Will it cause any damage to not fix it? Maybe you can live with it the way it is. Can you silence it by putting it on standby and/or turning off the volume on the guitar?

Actually cost of repair is really high, I need two main boards ( loop elements are divided between two boards) plus labor . So I swap back factory output transformer and sold it to my friend at Sam Ash. So I'm buying now a new IRT60 head and will put back Mercury tranny, in about 5 minutes after arriving :lol: :lol: :lol: , and my plan is to buy IRT15H next. In meantime got also big plans for AOR :D :D :D
