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 have a Panasonic HT-692 surround sound system. Any time I use the surround sound features and turn the volume to a higher level(not ear piercing mind you) the system cuts off as if a ckt breaker has


If you are playing the unit that loud, for an extended time it sounds like the unit is going into overload, meaning it's getting to hot. Try turning the volume down to 1/2 of your current level. If it stays running, you will have to cut back on your volume, before you seriously damage the unit(or your hearing)

5.1 Surround Sound Cutting Out


HI,
Yes you are right man, this problem occurs only with the cable problem, i can explain you, if there is a receiver problem means you won't get the sound its dam sure,
only if there is a cable problem you will get some noise or sound cut off with the speakers, so you please check the cables properly it will be alright.

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.

You dont have to crank up the volume to hear the bass man. It sounds like you have a bad connection some where. check all your connections and also if the wires are shinning and not dull at the connection point. having carbon or dust there will not help.

The screen height is easy, just press the "view mode" button on the controller and change the scaling thru that. As for sound I'm not sure on that, as I can hear mine just fine, plus I use a surround sound system.
