  • Opus 250W not sending any voltage through remote lines

    The remote line 2 is hooked up into my Amplifier (i know...rmt 1 should be run into amp)...but neither rmt line 1 or rmt line 2 are sending any voltage to the amp to turn it on. the jumpers are set correctly as far as i could tell from the wiring diagram i dounloaded from OPUS. I even went to Best Buy to have their installers look at it and see what they could figure out...nothing...does anyone have any idea what could be causing this?

    Thanks in advance for your help

    bump...

    does anyone know why the PSU wouldnt be sending the 12V signal through the remote lines?

    i hate having to go into my trunk to unhook the power to the amp every time i leave my car and rehook it up every time im gonna drive somewhere if i want music...

      Sorry I can't help but for now, why don't you just hook the remote to the ignition line?

          Yes in theory many people say it does - but it doesn't for me :-D

          Worth a try certainly.

              i hooked the ACC wire up to the amp and it works...but i get the pop...so i unhooked it. i would reather be minorly inconvenienced than possibly ruin my new speakers...

              now back to topic...why wouldnt my PSU be sending any voltage through the remote lines?

                    yeah...im hoping someone does...i have looked all through the FAQ's and every topic i can find with the word Opus in it on MP3.com....and that was a lot of reading...but nothing has turned up...

                    i have Opus' phone number, but since its a weekend right now, i cant call them. Ill probably just call them and ask for tech support...im still hoping someone has an answer...i only bought the thing in March, and i finally installed it earlier this week...

                    thanks though...

                    cheers mate

                      Does sound like a faulty board then mate - have you visually 'inspected' it? Did you get it from a decent retailer? or a dodgy ebayer ?

                        i bought it from here (mp3car.com)...i just want to make sure it is actually broken before i ask to RMA it.

                        when i opened up the package, there was a jumper pin bent on it...but it wasnt touching another pin so i didnt think too much about it since in the wiring diagram, that pin is used for the 20second startup/shutdown and i wasnt going to use that...i am using the 10 second...

                        what do you think?

                        i bought it on March 24th 2007...

                          Ahh you're allright, you bought it from a decent store, just RMA it. No probs.

                          I mean, if you really can't be bothered, I'm sure you could probably invent something to do the job, but when it's supposed to be sorted by the PSU, you're just adding more complexity, more to go wrong in the future. I know it's annoying, but if I were you, i'd RMA it.

                            Thanks dude...ill give MP3car a call tomorrow and get an RMA number...or whenever they are open again (its a holiday tomorrow)

                            i probably shouldnt have delayed RMAing it anyways...the motherboard fried in my trunk and i had to RMA it to MSI...i have to wait 3 weeks for it...bastards...no immediate replacement like Newegg...
