    Don't forget the connector pins in the bottom of the cards.

    They tend to lose their solder connection, and become intermittent. Also cold solder joints on the boards, and don't forget to make sure the connections to the Power Supply caps are tight.

    Your service manual and parts list were mailed Global Priority to you yesterday.

    You should receive it by next week. Let me know that you have received it.

    I really hope this helps.

    Scotty.

    Does anyone, off of the top of their collective heads, know where to buy the BI-PIN light bulbs for the meters?

    I would like a couple of spares. 20 of them should do fine.

    ALSO,

    Don't forget there are MANY Yamaha P2201 models out there!!!

    I have 4 of them, and bought them brand new in 1980-1982.

    They are exactly the same amp, without the meters.

    A great bargain amp!!!!

    Any more details on these? I don't have the models with the meters, so don't know which bulbs you need.

    Got the p2100 info in the mail today- many thanks, you're the best. I should be working on mine a week from tomorrow at my buddy's shop, if you've unearthed your 2100 & know the symptoms give us a call & we'll see if a diagnosis can be made.

    I've bought lamps for the PC2002 and PC4002 from partsexpress.com. One is a "bayonnet" type which plugs into a socket and the other has two wire leads coming off which you thread into a little rubber carrier for the bulb. I bought 10-packs of each lamp for what Yamaha wanted for one bulb! Radioshack.com has a good variety of these too.

    This is the kind with the leads:

    So you folks are big fans of the Yamaha P-2200 amp?
    Do you consider it more a pro amp, or is it good for biamp low-end use (Is the bass nice and full??)

    I've got all P2100s, 4 of them, and have always used them for full- or high-range. A close friend bridged one and powered a 2245H-loaded sub for years and loved it.

    For pro use I always used them in theater applications, quiet and transparent and realistic and reliable.

    I've got one going in for repair next week, you can borrow it after that if you like, it's my spare.

    Yes Miss Heather, it is a very good amp for biamping!!!

    I am using them upstairs here, and they just sound great to me.

    I have one 2200 driving two 2245's and its nice. One 2200 for the l200b 2235, and one 2100 for the 2440/2309-2310 horn with a 3105 xover and 2405 slot.

    Still have a couple extra hanging around. They are very different, and I believe, more of an amp than the 6230 I have. The 2200 has a serious power supply. Big soup can caps.

    I used them to biamp my disco rig for years. But, music changed and I went to the crown macrotechs. More power, less rack realestate, more hump for the bump.

    Always liked the 2200. I also have the 2050.
