Question about Technics SA-DA8 Receiver

3 Answers

Cuts out after about 30 min when in surround sound mode.

After about 30minutes in surround sound it cuts out. If you crank the volume you can hear it but it's at a whisper. In stereo mode it can play all day long. It was very hot to the touch. Checked the cooling fan which didn't come on regardless of what the volume was at. Replaced it with a computer fan of the same size and now the fan does come on, so I thought the problem was fixed. But it's still cutting out in surround sound just like before. I don't think it's the connections as I have completly disconnected everything from it and reconnected at least a dozen times with both my upstairs entertaintment setup and my basement entertainment setup. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as well as wether the unit is worth repairing or replacing. Thanks.

    Thanks for the help!! But I don't think there is a spot for another fan. Although heat may not be the problem as it'll work all day long in stereo.

    Just for kicks. Get a Portable Fan and put it where it will Blow Directly on the Back of the Reciever and Try it. If not you will have to replace the Circuit board on the Back side of the Reciever. Trying to not have you do that Though.

I set the volume to 40. After a little while the volume starts dropping down. If you do not turn the volume back up the volume will eventually go to zero all by it self and turn off the system.

The volume gets noisy, cracking sounds and fades out


Your volume control is dirty. Apply some deoxit or wd40 directly onto the module.

With no specific model mentioned it's hard to look in a manual for recommendations or visualize what possible switch may be out of place.

Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Source Selection, Mute, Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through defect or idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

This sounds like a decoder problem rather than a problem with the amplifier section. These units have a test mode, I believe, that sends white noise to each speaker. If that test has correct volume and balance, then the problem is in the digital decoding and processing. The surround processing board probably has a problem and will need to be replaced. Please update this with the results of the white noise test.

Thanks,

SOUND CUTS OUT WHEN VOLUME IS PAST 15


thats to stop you blowing your speakers. you can make your volume louder via the equaliser/surround settings, but you will still not be aloud past the number 15 without it cutting out.
its an EU setting thats on most mp3 players too, so that people wont listen to music too loud, "nanny state".

hope this helps

Sound cut-out


Most likely this unit goes into protect mode due to heat detection. Try to see if there is a pattern to when this behavior starts. Does a lower volume level allow the unit to run longer? Perhaps there is a problem internally that is allowing DC voltage to get to the output stage. This will cause excessive heat which can then cause the protection circuit to kick in. This unit may need to see a bench with some test gear to locate the exact problem. If you can, look for any pattern and update this.
