Question about Technics SA-DA10N 5.1 Channels Receiver

1 Answer

Technics/Panasonic Sa-Da 10 A/V reciever

I've lost my right and left channel but, not total sound loss. The switching relay for those channels, one of five doesn't hold. When I slightly flex the board or tap the relay, it will make contact and I will get a very faint sound. I believe I lost the power module for the front right and left channel. I ordered a new relay from electronic goldmine as a good measure. I have worked on ab amplifiers before and have replaced power transistors before. When locating the power amp module I am assuming that they are on the heat sink like power transitors of older amps. Just to be frank where are the power mods, what exactly do they look like and what is the part number and where can they be bought? Back in the day it was so easy, If I lost a channel I'd locate the power transistor for that channel and replace it or if it had static after that I'd replace the affected filtering capicitors. When I opened this thing up it, looked a little different. There are 3 black bars on the heat sink and they have 2ch labeled on them are those the power modules and are power modules the equivelant to power transisitors? There are only 5 powered channels on the sa-da 10 but, there are 3 of those bars = 6ch? There isn't any power for a subwoofer. It has an lfe single for an active sub. Anyways, I have 3 of these amps and I really like them regardless of their badging.
thanks for your help, Thommy

Those 'black bars' are the integrated preamp/output stages. This has benefits from a production standpoint and even from a quality standpoint since these modules have all the necessary feedback internal to them so using them, one can expect consistent performance without a a bunch of tweaking at the end of production.
If you would post any nomenclature you can uncover on the exposed side, one of us will be able to source them and they have typically not been that hard to find or expensive to purchase.
They are made by a number of different semi houses like National Semiconductor, Texas Instruments, Maxim and several asian houses particularly from Taiwan. The highest power module I've had to deal with was 40+40 watts but I don't recall the PN or maker.
They do die, but often, if you can extract the PN from them, you can find schematics of the innards from the manufacturer on line and use them for troubleshooting. Once you've seen the diagram, they are not all that exotic. PNs typically start with letters and end with numbers such as TDA 1657. Four digit numbers most often are the approximate date of manufacture; 3804 = 38th week of 2004.

Can you have just 2 channel by hooking up to right & left front speaker posts on 5.1 surround


short answer.....no. If you hook more than one speaker up to a single channel, it will lower the impedence and will damage the amp. You can hook up multiple speakers by using a speaker switch box between the speakers and the amp. This will match the impedence and should keep the amp from blowing.

No sound from left channel on my Technics SA-R 230


May just be bad connections on the speaker relay. Flip the main board over, and check those connections. It is pretty common on these older models.

Left channel works intermittantly


This is a typical problem with older receivers. While they are well-built, the controls have become dirty over the years. All the switches and potentiometers need to be cleaned with a quality cleaner, such as Caig DeOxit, and possibly the speaker protection relay many need to be replaced (dirty or pitted contacts). It might sound like a big deal, but it isn't. I've worked on hundreds of these older Japanese units and do it every day. ;)

Look for lossing solders points or bad conections. Start to look on those components of hi wattage and components to get hot alot, those are the most common to have weak solders spots.
Also some equipment need to be clean because the dust can make problems.
good luk.
