Try to check if the blower is working, If not then first look for the blower sensor and clean it and resolder parts pin joints and associated parts also.If ever the blower is working fine then the problem is in amplifier section caused by change value resistor or leak capacitor or cold ,loose or crack solder joint parts this the common problem of over heating amplifier caused by abnormal distribution of current,try all of this,so your receivers works normal again.

Hope it may help you;

My SI-1230 was not working on channels 5-6 and 11-12. I opened the amp and replaced the fuses on those channels. Now the fuses blow immediately on channels 5-6 and the red protection light is on...


Chances are the main transistors or whatever powers channel 5 and 6 have shorted out. Fuses blow like this when there is an overload and these power types do that a lot. If it uses transistors, then a ohm meter will show them up quick. Because it will be just like you have touched the test probes together when you put them on the terminals, with the meter on the 1K setting. For the reason these parts are just acting like pieces of wire instead of doing their job.

I have two Sonamp 260 amplifiers hooked into our whole house surround. One of them will not power up, or when it does it only powers up for a minute or two. Any thoughts?


When an eletronic devices shuts down, it is usually caused by an overload in the circuit. You can try connecting a different speaker to it to see if does the same thing. If that do not work it is needs repair.

I have 6 speakers connect to my Niles 1230. The 2


First, change them to a different set of channels to rule out any problem with the amp. Next, pull the speakers, depending on the manufacturer, if their older than 1 year they may be blown. If you can pull the grill off the speaker, do so and examine the surround. If it's rubber or plastic, it should be ok. If it's foam or paper, chances are it's bad. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I will help you troubleshoot some more.

Sonamp 260 no sound ac on light stays red power on light is green


1. Check that the trimpots on the front panel are all the way up.
2. The speaker relay on the Amp PCB may be bad. Over time the fingers can warp and won't make contact any longer.

Sonance 275 no getting sound to speakers


The Sonamp 275 has Signal LEDs on the front panel, above the Volume pots. If signal is present at the RCA inputs, the Signal LEDs will be blinking.
Most likely, there isn't any line level audio signal coming from the receiver. Hook RCAs to Tape Output or MD output and check system using the Tuner which is an analog signal.

Hi Rommel_fix

Do you want to use a mixer for a preamp? This will work fine. Is this what you are doing?
