Amplifiers started chirping then system stopped operating.

This models has history of AMP has to be sent out for after market repair at $700 or replacement from Lexus at $2600.

Rash of comments in forums with Lexus Mark Levinson AMPs with this issue.

The sound system stopped working. Later it begin working again. And then intermittently would change stations on the a.m. satellite dial. And then has stopped working entirely

Was traveling, when out of the blue, music replaced with loud chirping. Tried everything, but nothing would stop the noise. Ended up pulling the fuse. Over $3,000 to fix ... sad. Now listening to Pandora on my cell phone. Wow ... real Lexus / Mark Levinson quality!!!

Loud popping in sound system, miserable three hundred miles.

I pulled the amp out of trunk. Amp is on the far right side of trunk. You will have to remove the covering It's under car mat. I sent the amp to radios and more.The purchase repair was listed in eBay.The cost for the harman Becker amp repair was 725.00 So far the amp has been working perfectly.

With no warning while the radio was on, a chirping sound was heard from all speakers. Turning the radio off made no difference - the chirping continued uninterrupted. My local Lexus dealer diagnosed the problem over the phone. Obviously, he was familiar with the symptoms I described. Subsequently, an examination by the dealer's tech confirmed the problem, and I was quoted a repair bill of almost $1,000 for a reconditioned amp.

My sound system is pinging. I took it to the Toyota dealership. They wanted $1400 dollars for repair!

my radio just stop playing and started chirping. could not turn off the radio to discontinue the chirping.

chriping noise from speakers - replace Levinson amp under extended warranty - no charge
