Check to see if any of the copper in the speaker wires are exposed and touching at the receiver and speakers.(This can cause this to happen if the wires are touching)
Could also be a resistor over heating

That can be because of a shorted speaker, or if you have connected low impedance speakers you can get the same problem.

    If your amp is an FR975 it will work with speakers >6 ohms.

    Check your speakers impedance, if it is ok, then you have a bad speaker, replace the wirings, do the job properly, ensure that wires are well insulated and that there are no shorts.
    If you still get the problem replace the speakers.
    Using the system with this problem can damage the amp.

Hi,
Its problem of one of speaker that is mismatched with Amp Impedance. Please check removing one by one speaker to find what speaker is giving problem.

Any of the speaker wires touching? There is a safety feature on your reciever so it does not blow.

Let me know.

I set the volume to 40. After a little while the volume starts dropping down. If you do not turn the volume back up the volume will eventually go to zero all by it self and turn off the system.

Receiver when turned on is At 25 for volume the clicks and turns off. You can turn it on and turn down the volume so it will not shut off. However, it does not appear to play in surround sound DD or...


You have two different issues here which may be related (or not). Let me address them as separate issues:

1) If the unit shuts down only at high volumes, then either it is heating up (not likely) or there is some DC voltage getting to the final amplification stage. This will trigger the protection circuit which will shutdown the receiver. See the link for more info about protect mode in general.
( http://www.fixya.com/support/r5390728-protector_means )

2) The lack of surround would suggest that the unit is stuck in bypass mode or that the digital surround processing section is not working. Usually when this happens, any attempt to use a surround mode will result in no sound at all or very weak distorted sound. If you are getting sound at normal levels, then I would suspect that the main CPU is not telling the surround section to work. This can be a power suply problem, a CPU problem or even within the processing board itself. Without seeing waveforms within the receiver, I can't tell for sure.

The bottom line is that further investigation is needed. I would recommend that you take this to a shop and request a detailed repair estimate, Armed with that, we should be able to guide you through the repair or at least, provide more details.

Please keep us posted,

Thanks,
Dan

Hi - Your Home Theater System and your TV should have separate volume controls. You should be able to control each individually. Start by checking the volume level on your TV with your HTS shut-off. Turn the volume on your TV all the way down to 0.

Next, turn your HTS on and check the volume level there. Is it still loud? If so, try turning the volume down on your HTS. That should do the trick. If its not loud then you know you can control the volume on either the HTS or the TV. If this answer does not help, then please write us back with a little more detail. Thanks.

Kenwood Receiver VR 806 turning off


Sounds like the music amplifier is different to the tuner audio amp. The music amplifier is now looking at an unbalanced impedance which is less than it should be. Therefore the output chip of the music amp has more current through it than it wants so it gets hot and shuts down.Put a four ohm wirewound resistor ( from Radio Shack ) in series with each surround speaker to reduce the current flow through the amplifier output.

Receiver shuts off when volume raised above 10


A fuse breaker or resetting electronic componet device attaced to the audio receiver protects the amp & speakers for destruction! The quality of the amp ,spkers& spks. wires help on choosing for protection shut downs! Of course at 10 volume you risk all of the amp in the receiver , buy a higher quality brand reciever ,intergrated amp, single amp . BE CAREFUL AT THE HIGHER VOLUME RATINGS YOU RISK HEARING DAMAGE! FOR REAL!

Technics SA-DX950 surround sound problems


The most likely culprit here is the output protection relay. The contacts are a little corroded and the higher volume "jumps the gap" temporarily "cleaning" the contacts. The relay should be changed. I don't have the manual with me, but the following relays are in the unit. One of them is the speaker relay:

Part # Cost
RSY0054-C $12.63
RSY0040M-0 $ 5.89
K6B2AHA00014 $ 8.14

There is a problem with the output section. When you turn up the volume, the protection circuit kicks in and shuts down the system. This unit requires service. Expect a parts cost of about $10-$30. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost.
