Question about Technics SA-DA8 Receiver

Technics SA-GX130 turns itself off

I have this machine since 1997 and it worked perfectly well until several days ago when it started turning itself off after 5-10 minutes of use. Then it turns on, then 2-3 minutes later turns itself off again. No problem with the sound, the fan works fine. Any idea about the problem? Thanks.

SOURCE: Technics receiver SA AX540 overheating

is the fan turning on? many models like these have a cooling system (fan) that kicks up when the volume is turned to a certain level. if your fan has never been on, then chances are some of your soldering points have shifted or gotten a little messed up over time from the heating/cooling effect. this model runs extremely hot especially right where the vent is on the top of the cabinet. make sure that it is not in a shelf or enclosed area. dont stack other items on top of it. use an external device to control the volume so that you can have the receiver volume at a fixed level where the fan will turn on. if your sound still doesnt work, you should consider buying a new receiver or try your local craigslists forum. make sure if you buy a new one, that it is a more expensive model from a brand like sony and check the model online for known problems. stores like best buy offer extended warranties on most of their products which are very wise investments. good luck sinbad

Ratnesh, I have this same receiver and the fan only comes on at certain volume levels. Unfortunately I now live in an apartment and can very rarely listen to it that loud. I had the same problem for a little while until I thought about moving the receiver to the lowest shelf with nothing on top of it. This seems to have worked so far although it does still get quite warm. Good luck!

Most of these problems are rooted in a failed power amp module.
I'm working on an older technics unit but with the same troubles.

Have you tried connecting speakers? What was the result?

Yes, when you turn the volume up on these amps (or when the output gets past a certain level) the cooling fan should automatically come on.

There is no easy fix for this. Your unit is power itself down to protect itself. There is an obvious short. You will need seek professional assistance.

CAN I USE SA-GX130 RECIEVER WITH IPOD


Yes, you can. Go to a local electronics store or go online and buy a cable (we used to call them patch cords back in the day) with a 1/8" STEREO plug, (also called a mini phone plug) on one end and two phono plugs (also called RCA plugs) on the other end. They're available in various lengths -- 12" is a good choice. We're talking less than $10 here.

Connect the RCA plugs into an appropriate pair of unused INPUT jacks on the back of your receiver -- CD, VCR1, Tape Monitor/VCR2 will do. DO NOT use the phono jacks. The red plug is for the right channel. You can leave the cable plugged in. Then whenever you want to listen to your iPod, insert the mini phone plug into the iPod's earphone jack, switch the receiver to the input for the cable, and start playing. You may have to increase the volume on your iPod to avoid having to turn the receiver all the way up (or down) to listen, but after that you can use the receiver's volume control.

Stereo receiver: headphones work but speakers don't


This could be either a fault on the headphone socket itself, or on a speaker switch. It depends on how the insertion of the jack plug into the socket affected the sound before the fault. If for example the sound was cut off from the speakers, then it's likely the fault is the socket itself.
On the other hand if you have to press a button to switch the speakers off the fault will be connected with the that button.

Distortion on analog input of Technics SA-DA10.


Solved it... Turns out it was the connection between my "Tape Out" on my DA10, and "In" on my (Philips) DCC deck that caused some sort of (ground?)loop. Removing this connection solved my problem. Can't believe it took me so long to figure this out! Anyway, i'm very happy with this, since i really love this amp, and i felt really bad about this sudden weird distortion thing. My faith in the Technics brand has been restored, as has my appreciation for this lovely piece of gear :)

I had the exact same thing with my Technics SU-A808 stereo amp, btw.
