CHeck the timer switch. It looks like a round, flat plastic wheel with 4-5 small tabs (Contacts) sticking out. Sometimes they get dirty and won't respond to inputs.

I have a Sony home theatre it shows an error "Push power protector" pl tell me which part may i change ? I mean which IC ? How can I solve for this problem I already change the ic STR F6168 but no way

Check your power supplies by measuring or disconnecting. You probably have a load of some type either on an output channel or you may have shorted caps loading one of your power supplies. You can't guess your way through it.

Motor wont start. good power through switch. is there a fuse or therma protector? do the capacitors go bad on these?

Hi,every PCB has fuse on it.It varies on the value of the fuse.When short circuit or overheating happens in the system .Fuse will trip off.usually for PCB fuse is replaceable.When it blown out it need to be replaced.Its like a normal fuse.when it blown out it should be replaced by another one.Now there might also a problem with the capacitor it will no longer take and supply power to the circuit.There might be some complications with the IC's on the circuit and if it will not be checked by a technician it may damage other IC's either.Or might be the Power supply or the DC transformer was damaged..Better check it with technician..Hope this helps..

ILink not working. Computer does not recognize the deck. What intenal component(s) is faulty?

i-link ic might have blown due to back voltage spikes to it from computer through the cable. check with a service centre and replace the ic if faulty. otherwise i link cable or connector may be faulty. be in mind that never connect or disconnect i link cable while mechine is connected to power ( even in OFF condition also).

Denon DCD-920 CD Player. Display lights up with a series of 0"s but disc doesn't play

I had exactly the same problem with my Denon DCD-910. Fixing it is easy, but it took me a while to find out;

In the power supply +10V and -10V unstabilized lines (in front of the 7805 and 7905 +5V and -5V regulators on the heatsink),

there are 2 ICP-N15 devices (IC protectors: very fast acting electronic fuses 0.6A). PCB component print is IC502 and IC503 if I remenber well. They tend to deteriorate over time and break, or a current peak could have made them tripping.

The +10V/-10V (+13/-13V really) is used for driving the loading/spindle/sliding motors and focus/tracking coils ONLY. +/-5V was still OK, that's why you can still see the display.

They have a TO92 transistor housing, but only 2 leads. ICP-N15 are hard to find; You could also use ICP-F15, but these have a different housing.

You could order the original ICP-N15 at
An alternative could be to mount 2 polyswitches (also called multifuse), a PTC type current limiting and recoverable circuit breaker, like Bourns MF-R065, rated 0.65 A

I replaced them with 2 radial 800mA PCB solder mount fuses (1$/pc), and everything works fine again. Yet another piece of excellent equipment not to be thrown away ;-)

You have to unmount the PCB from the CD player housing (about 8 screws and disconnect all 10 connectors) to be able to replace the fuses.
While it is disassembled, check for broken solderings, especially on high power devices ( like voltage regulators mounted on heatsink or power transistors)

I hope it works for you too.
