Problem with speaker wires making contact in back of reciever on

I have Technics reciever i purchased around 10 years ago, I also purchased the bose surround speakers at same time. The Bose speaker wires are round and the Technics has a clip style wire holder in back. My Surround speakers will only work if i push them farther into the clip holders and than they will work for like a day than they quit till i do it again. Sometimes if i just leave it on for a few hours it will come and go. I have tried cutting the speaker wires back to see if there is a break in it and it still does the same thing. it does it sometimes on the left front speaker but not as bad. I have to push the surround wires straight in hard and it will make contact.

Open up the receiver and check for poor solder connections @ the spkr junctions.

If you can solder, then solder a pin that is THICKER than the wire to it, the Bose wire is fairly thin and the spring clips don't clamp to heavily to thin stuff.

When you push the surrounds in you bottom them out in the connector. Having a thicker wire will eliminate the problem, use a piece of 12ga solid wire from house wiring. Make as many as you need and shrink tube all connections after soldering. Use White for + and Black for -.

Overload sa-tx50


Most overloads are caused by the main output devices. They will go short circuit if for example speaker wires have come into touch. Another cause is high volume or a faulty speaker. Or poor ventilation around the amp causing excess heat.
The only cure is to replace the device(s) generally located on the heat sink.

My denon avr1200 receiver once it is turned on goes into Protection mode. How do you reset or make work?


The reciever will go into protection mode when there is a short in the speaker wires or the amplifier was overloaded. What I would do first is verify that none of the speaker wire connections are loose at the back of the reciever or at each speaker. And verify that none of the wires are making contact with each other. Then label each speaker wire as you remove them from the reciever so you can re-install them correctly. After you have disconnected the speaker wires try unplugging the reciever for 10 to 15 minutes. Most recievers have a self-resetting overload protection switch and this should reset it back to normal. Now try plugging the reciever back in and turn it on without the speaker wires connected. It should be out of protection mode now. If it is still in protection mode verify that there is not a reset switch somewhere on the back of the reciever. If it is not in protection mode now then proceed to connect one speaker set at a time and turn on the reciever to see if it goes into protection mode. If it goes into that mode after connecting a speaker then that speaker is the cause of the problem. If it does not go into the mode after all speakers are connected then try turning the volume up. If it goes into protection mode then there could be an internal short on the amplifier or a incorrect OHM rated speakers connected to reciever. Verify that the speakers are rated the correct OHMS.

Better sound through bose speakers?


If you have the money to plunk down for a Bose Acoustimass home theater speaker system, I'm sure you will be quite pleased. Of course, as you indicated, appropriate placement of the speakers is important. Still, I'm sure you will find that a properly placed Bose Acoustimass speaker system will fill your room with high quality sound, substantially better than Onkyo's stock speakers placed equally well.

I own a Technics home theater system, which I initially purchased to use in my family room. Yet, when I listened to a Bose Lifestyle system (powered by Bose Acoustimass speakers), I could have nothing less. The Bose system went in the family room, where everyone could enjoy it. I put the Technics system in the bedroom, where it is rarely used.

I have a KLH 700watt home theater reciever that wont stay on!!


Sounds like it is overheating. Try one or all of the following:

Remove anything that may be stored on top of it. Unblock the vents.

Connect speakers with a higher sensitivity rating.

Move it to an area where it has more airflow around it, ie; not in a closet or cabinet.

Disable any bass-boost and equalization, or tone controls.

Set any crossover settings for any subwoofer you may have connected, to a higher frequency.

Decrease your listening volume.

The reciever comes on and shows a radio station than goes into protect mode


this usually indicates a fault has tripped and something is shorting out.

check your wire terminals make sure a strand of cooper wire isn't wrapped around something

next if there are buttons to turn the speakers off do so, then check to see if you can turn the surriound sound can be set to "stereo" in that second before it locks up.

If you can eliminate the 5 speaker terminals from being a problem then thats a good step but fir unstance if the second you push speaker A to on it locks up then you know the problem is in the circuitry.

This happened to me with an Onkyo receiver about 5 years ago the cost to repair was $180and took 3 weeks.You will have to decide if its worth putting money into the unit. If you paid lets say $300 and its 5 years old you would be better served by upgrading to a new unit that wll boast ,ore modern features.

Also as a last resort twist the inputs on the back of the unit just to verify that an RCA connector has not come unsoldered. Another quick check would be uncrew the 6-10 screws that hold the top on. Look for something that is loose in there. I had a sonance amp that sounded bad when you shaked it and all it was was a fuse that popped out of its holder.

Technics SA-DA10 jumps into overload after 10 minutes


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.
