Question about Samsung SIR-S300W DirecTV DTV Receiver

Open Question

Receiver is not working

My receiver won't shut off and there is no picture. When pushing the power button the unit does not shut off. I have to unplug it to turn it off. It is also making a slight clicking sound. When I turn on the tv, I do not get a picture but a continuous slight jolt of a black screen as if it's trying to register but it does nothing. I left the unit unplugged while at work and still the same thing. I've had it for about 5.5 years. Any idea what this is?

Your best bet would definitely be to upgrade recievers. You can call directv and see if they will give you a deal, or check ebay or call your local directv electronics dealer.
Hope this helps.
Thanks,
Lee

SOURCE: Receiver on but not working

call direct tv and ask for a reset. When you do not use your receiver leave it on and connecetd or it will not receive updates and will forget what it once knew. Actually I think you can use the automated system and use (I think...not sure) code 712 to reset all your receivers with out waiting for help.

Your model has a maximum resolution of 720p. What you might want to do is make sure that both your cable/sat box and game stations are outputting at no more than 720 resolution. It's easy to assume that all HDTVs may accept a higher signal, and while they might, some of the scene changes or handshakes may make that operation cause the symptoms you describe.

I had the same problem with a 52" Samsung LCD. I found 2 electrolytic caps with bulging tops on the power supply board. (see pic). I looked to be the 5v section but I'm not sure. I got replacement at Fry's for $1.90 each. All is well!

Yamaha Receiver won't turn on after USB plugin in. Help!


Unit is in protect mode. Sometimes an ipod draws too much current through the usb jack and causes the unit to shut down due to an abnormal voltage being detectected. Press and hold the 'info' and 'tone control' buttons and push power. This should turn the unit on. Turn it back off and turn it on again and should power up normally. If the ipod continues to make the unit shut down when plugged in, try and make sure it is fully charged before plugging it into the receiver - this may help.

Where are the fuses in the harman kardon 3380 receiver, I had a lightning strike which I think knocked out my receiver thru my outdoor speakers, it will not turn on, could it be a fuse and if yes, where is...


Hello Randy,
There are two options here: first, the power button is amber but unit still won't go. In this case try a 'factory reset' as per manual. If this won't work, it seems that the processor is gone (located on the display board) so you have to bring your unit into a authorized shop for repairs. Secondly, it might be just matter of some blown fuses which are located inside the unit on the transformer board. If after replacing (if they're blown) the unit still won't work or keeps blowing the new fuses, follow the first advice, meaning you have to bring the receiver to a service. To access the fuses, you have to remove the top cover.I wish you luck

Twice now my Pioneer VSX-819H has shut down. Can not get any power to it. The first time I'm sure the phono pre-amp caused a surge. I no longer have it hooked up. The servicer said nothing was wrong and...


I found this for the VSX918, 818. Perhaps it's similar.

The power does not turn on. • Disconnect the power plug from the outlet, and insert again.
• Make sure there are no loose strands of speaker wire touching the rear panel. This could cause the receiver to shut off automatically.
The receiver suddenly switches off and the power indicator
blinks.
• After about a minute (you won’t be able to switch the unit on during this time), switch the receiver back on. If the message persists, call a Pioneer authorized independent service company.

Resetting the main unit
Use this procedure to reset all the receiver’s settings to the factory default. Use the front panel controls to do this.
1 Switch the receiver into standby.
2 While holding down the ADVANCED SURROUND button, press and hold the
STANDBY/ON button for about three
seconds.
3 When you see RESET? appear in the display, press ‘
ST –’. OK?
shows in the display.
4 Press SOUND RETRIEVER to confirm.
OK
appears in the display to indicate that the receiver has been reset to the factory settings.

When I turn on my receiver, it automatically turns off and the power button flashes red. Prior to shut down, the receiver display notes "Tuner Ext. In" What's the problem? It has worked p


Protection circuit turns off the unit because of critical conditions- wrong power supply voltages or one of the power amplifier channels is bad. First, visual inspect the power amp board near the heat sink for burned resistors, test outputs for a short. If there are no problem you may try to turn the unit on and you have several second before it shuts down to check power supply voltages and power amp output voltages and bias, then ... Long story you'd better take it to a repair shop or repair at ebcelectronics.com

Yamaha HTR5830 shuts down when any front panel button is pushed


You are having a component failure problem in the switching circuit. This unit should be taken in for service. Since it is going into the protection mode on any switch operation the failure is serious and needs to be repaired before it causes more damage to the receiver.You can call this number to find a Yamaha service center near you. 1-800-492-6242. You can also go to the www.yamaha.com website. go to the support section and put in the model number of your receiver and check out the frequently asked questions and troubleshooting sections to see if someone else has had this problem and had a repair solution printed. I hope this helps you with your problem

WOOHOO!! I fixed this issue... same problem as everyone else has mentioned... to reset the Kenwood VR-606 receiver, unplug the unit. Hold the power button down and while holding the power button plug the unit in.
Say a prayer...
Then press the power button.
My display isn't working, but my speakers are working, and that's really all I care about right now... good luck to others!

Kenwood KR V8080 receiver


if you sent 110v down the speaker wires & into the amp you most likely have damaged the audio outputs or the output ic. Look for a big aluminum heatsing & on one side you may find 1 or 2 ic's or numerous transistors, the ic's are hard to check, the transistors are easier to check, if transistors replace in pairs. also check for burnt /open resistors near outputs
