Guys, I know this is an old post but I had the same problem recently. Took it to my mate and he said the fan at the back was full of dust which was stopping the fan blades spinning. He sprayed it with compressed air from a can and it works perfectly. Complete fix for only five pounds for the compressed air off eBay

I had the same problem with my Samsung HT-BD1250. In my case, the unit was refurbished so....no warranty. I simply opened up the receiver and discovered that the fan was not even connected! I just plugged it in and.....Voila! Works like a charm. Be warned though that if your unit is still under warranty, opening it up will likely void the warranty.

From what I can gather the problem is caused by a faulty sensor. I don't know where the sensor is yet. But I have eliminated everything else associated with the fan which is the fan lol.

I have taken the fan out of my HT-Z510 and hooked it up to my computer and it worked flawlessly.. I am awaiting an email from Samsung as we speak. I will keep you posted

SOURCE: i have a samsung ht-tx75 and it keeps shutting

Protection is very likely caused by an over heat condition, even with the fan working if the receiver is in a very enclosed place that warms up and is not ventilated it will cause the problem. The solution is to provide more ventilation so that the receiver can cool itself properly.

SOURCE: Samsung HT-Z310 tries to load disc, but never does

I've had a similar problem where the disc continues spinning in the "loading" mode and then finally goes to "disc error." So, I opened the cover of the player, and noticed that the disc was not spinning as fast as I expected, and there was an extra unpleasant sound when the disc was spinning. Thus, I suspected there was an issue in the drive motor system: either the motor drive board, the motor itself, or the contact to the disc. I saw that there was dust accumulated on the rubber contacts to the disc, so I cleaned them with a q-tip. I then resetted the system, and the disc was the spinning normally again, and everything worked like before! (Other things I have tried in the past were cleaning the lens and updating the firmware, none of which worked) I hope this helps!

Hello my Samsung HT-x70 plays for about 20 minutes and then shuts off. Please help


First check in back that the fan is running. Second: Remove cover and check for bad capacitors in the back right corner. The ones in my system were blue. one had totally dissolved. I replaced the capacitor ad the system worked fine, Then found the fan was not running so replaced that too. It does take some soldering to repace the capacitor.

The fan is going bad and if you have replaced it try to open the case and remove the cover over all the capaciters and what not and replace that fan in the back then cut a hole in the top of the metal case directly about the cap's that warm up and install a aditional fan to act as a chimney a little noisy but i did this and the player had been runing in aux and radio mode for a few days stright now no problems at all it's alot of work and skill but for 2 5-15 dolar fans sure beats the 160 for repair or buying a new recever! make sure u turn on the recever for 10 min if the fan is not turning by then its still not good
