Wharfedale TU160DTR saying fail

Our wharfedale TU160DTR was working ok, if skipping a few recordings up until a day or 2 ago when it wouldn't turn on and came up with a message saying fail. i'm assuming this is probably terminal but we live on Lundy Island so returning it won't be easy. any ideas?

    Exact same problem, Fail is shown on display window. Have tried unplugging to reboot. This Freeview box has been one problem after an other........ DO NOT BUY ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Box working fine - had a problem getting access to recorded items then FAIL appeared on the display window. Now can do nothing with it. Very poor considering only 6 months old. Have notices same box now being marketed as a BUSH by ARGOS.

Center channel problem


Sound circuit card has likely failed. Without the proper electrical tools (oscilloscope) it is hard to fix. Take it in and see what they say it will cost to repair. Take to at least two different shops.

Yamaha RX-797 Amp not working


You have too much power being ran to the amp and it's overheating.
Lower your wattage.

Yamaha rx-v371 shuts off 2 secs after turning on


Return unit to place of purchase, this is clearly a manufacture defect. The warranty will cover full replacement, do not allow them to attempt repair on the current item because you will be back and forth until warranty runs out.

I have Harmon Kardon AV140 connected to 6 Klipsch speakers. All of sudden I know longer have any sound coming out of my front speakers. Everything was working fine a few days ago. Did we hit a button in...


Only the front speakers failing? All others ok?

There is NO configuration that would have NO front speakers.

Go back to basics, open the manual and use test tones for speaker verification.

HI A few days ago RECEIVED PURCHASED Yamaha RX-V767 Receiver Titanium NOW DOESN'T WORK. WHEN I TRY TURN ON NOTHING HAPPENS, I DON'T KNOW WHY BECAUSE YESTERDAY WAS OK, AT NIGHT I FINISHED LISTENING...


Hi,
you are owned a no quibble replacment. You have faulty circuitry and no user can replace or repair the internals at this early stage as you will invalidate any warrenty.

Wharfedale pro BX1360SD powered mixer intermittent fault - preamp section OK, no output from power amp (false overtemp detection? shutting down power amp??) please supply advice, circuit...


Wharfedale pro bx1360sd


I have had problems with this stereo mixer amplifier which had the symptoms of no sound output from either channel .

I opened up the unit and discovered that the amplifier was correctly amplifying my input signal up to a relay which switches the output through to the speakers .

This relay did not activate at all.

When the power switch is turned ON you should hear a click approximately 2 seconds later , if no click then there is a problem with the circuitry associated with this relay .

I traced out all the connections associated with this relay and made a circuit diagram .

The relay is a 24v relay and I will explain the way that I can see that this section of the amplifier works.

It has been designed to ;

  1. Create a slow start delay ( 2 seconds ) when the power is turned ON.

This it needed because otherwise there is a current surge and sparks from the relay turning on immediately.

  1. Thermal cutout mounted on heatsink . If the ventilation fan fails the heatsink and transistors may get too hot and the cutout will operate and cut power to the relay by going open circuit.
  2. Speaker protection from blown output transistors. There are 2 transistors q802 and q803 both 2sc1815. They are connected together emitter to emitter and collector to collector to form a differential Op amplifier I.C. If there is a blown output transistor then DC voltage will be detected by q802 and q803 and the relay will be switched OFF to protect the speakers .


Q804 turns On Q805 which turns On Q806 to activate the relay .

Voltages on transistors

Q802 and Q803 2sc1815

Base 0V Collector 12.9V Emitter 0V


Q804 2sa1015

Base 12.9V Collector 0V Emitter 15.1V


Q805 2sc1815 (driver for Q806)

Base 0V Collector 7.2V Emitter 0V


Q806 2sc1815

Base 0V at Turn ON then after 2 secs increases to 0.7V

Collector 2.8V ( transistor is activated as a switch Turned Fully ON ( saturated) to turn on the Load which is the relay .

Emitter 0V


I have replaced the following transistors to fix my amplifier q805 2sc1815 and q806 2sc1815 .If you are going to use a different type of transistor it may not work and also the lead connections of a 2sc1815 for the collector and emitter are different to those such as on a 2n2222( transposed).

Got a wharfedale NE-3272 DAB/CD Micro system,had it about four months now for my birthday.On friday(about three days ago)it started for no reason to switch itself to stand-by after about three seconds...


I had a similar problem with my wharfedale NE-3272 DAB/CD. Argos replaced it. Now the new one switches itself off when I switch to cd. I think it's one of those that look the part but are really just poorly made tat.

Protect keep showing in screen


Theres a few things that can cause that. The protection on the reciver means that a wire is crossing somewhere or it can mean the unit is over heating. replace wires and find you 2 speakers to just test to see if you have a bad coil in your speakers. Replace the wires even if they seem to look ok they might not be. If that fails, the unit could have a problem causing grounding or over heating.
