Technics SA-DX950 intermitently sounds blown out

I turn on my Technics SA-DX950 receiver and the sound is fine for several minutes. Then the volume on the speakers will go way up and the sound will be very distorted. It the receiver is shut off then turned back on the problem usualy goes away. I have tried a second set of speakers and continue to have the same problem.

There are poor solder connections at the output amp pacs and the voltage regulators. Once these are resoldered the problem should go away. If you can solder, resolder any connections that appear grainy or have rings. If you can not, this should be effectively a labor only repair for any shop that works on audio gear.

I have a Technics SA - DX750 Amp Everytime I turn it on I get an error message F70 and then it requests that I turn the power off. This is all it does now, so sound. How do I solve this issue I have...


The F70 error certainly indicates a blown fuse inside.
The real problem is why the fuse is blown: there are only two possible reasons
1. there is a short circuit on the output (lines or speakers)
2. you have a blown output transistor (and that means some work and skills to replace).

To be sure, please change the fuse with a same rated fuse (buy more than one because it can blow again). Disconnect the speakers and turn the amp on. If the fuse blows again, it is sure something wrong with the output transistors. If the fuse remains ok, then please check all the wiring to the speakers.

Hope it helped.

Raised volume cuts sound and gives me "overload" message

A couple of possibilities: Bad solder on power regulators (attached to main heat sink) or cooling fan may not be turning on when volume is raised.

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

sounds like the speaker protection relay is operating probably from a dc condition appearing on power amplifiers outputs. probable cause is dry solder joints to the output stages. will need some reworking of the PA stage soldering to fix.

Adam's Problem

you have a short circuit occurring in speaker outputs. If you are using the high power inputs of the sub, try disconnecting them first. check polarity of speaker connections to sub also.
