My Panasonic Stereo (sa-ak510) will not power on. The red light blinks and makes a clicking sound almost every 30 seconds. Does anyone know what this is?

I fixed my stereo by opening and reconnecting the the side board because it was sticking out. If you're going to do it disconnect the stereo.

There is a problem inside that is being detected during the power-up sequence. The clicking is the main power relay that is being tripped when the problme is detected. With no symptoms to guide me other than the clicking, I can't state the exact problem. This could be as simple as a bad cap in the power supply or something more severe. An examination of the boards and some measurements would be necessary to provide you with a reasonable estimate for the repair. I would suggest that you bring this to an authorized Panasonic service center for an estimate first. Armed with their evaluation, I may be able to walk you throught the actual repair.

I have a Panasonic SA-PM31 stereo system with two auxiliary input methods: the first appears to be a common auxiliary cable input which says "phones." The second is a two cable input system...

The corect input for your ipod is another one who's name is "auxiliary" The "phones" input is dedicate only for pick-up, or another device who had to output a very small level signal. Your ipod have a high power level on output because he is amplified for a good level sound on your earphones. So, you can serious damage your Panasonic SA-PM31 sound system when input a too high level signal on "phones input" Phones is for unamplified audio signals like pickup signal direct from the head wires, or casette deck signal direct from the head wires. Gross (unprocessed) signal.

SA-AK510 You can turn it off manually, and it


In regards to your issue with your SA-AK510 turning back on most likely you have a short and/or a bad connection on the unit. So what is happening is the is a charge going to the switch that is engaging the switch again after you turn it off. Note most modern electronics do not have switches like a light switch. They have an electric relay switch that turn off and on the device when the circuit is completed.

The first thing I would do is make sure that your receiver is not still in warranty. If it is I would call Denon's support. If you are not then the first theng to check would be the fuse. I have seen a few devices over the years where the fuse clip is not connected properly and starts to arc which in turn puts a charge on the board. Also you will want to look around in the areas that get hot to see if any of the installation melted off the wires causing you to have some exposed wires.

Hope this helps

I have a panasonic sa-ak630 and it works and everything i just dont have any sound at all

I had the same stereo, I found that the issue you describe happens often under heavy use especially with the subwooferon max. Simply unplug the stereo unit from its power source for about a minute and plug it in and it should work again. Hope this helps.
