    I had the same problem with one I bought 12/2/07. On 12/22/07, it smoked so I went to Best Buy to exchange it. I got another and it has been working since then up to now, March 4, 2009. This one started smelling bad and then shut off. Now "protection" light comes on and then shuts off. If I move it to open area will it resolve problem? I see this a fire hazard. Mine is inside wood cabinet and luckily I was home both times.

    I have the same problem. I read the solution that suggests moving this to an open area, but I was not convinced so I took the top cover off... a resistor or capacitor or something next to the fan is completely fried... I am taking it to a repair shop today, I will let you know if I find anything.

Protection is very likely caused by an over heat condition, even with the fan working if the receiver is in a very enclosed place that warms up and is not ventilated it will cause the problem. The solution is to provide more ventilation so that the receiver can cool itself properly.

My samsung ht-tx75 home theater system shuts off for no reason, any ideas of what it could be?


It sounds like you have either a thermal problem , or an electronic component fault in the power amp section. If the protection circuit is being activated, which disconnects the speakers so you have no sound, this is like to be the problem. Unless you are a trained technician, you should take it to a repair center. If the repair estimate is larger than you are prepared to pay (unlikely, unless it is a snobby shop) you have to decide whether to replace it with a new or used one.

Problem with SAMSUNG HT-X20!!


The fan is going bad and when u play dvd's the spining of the cd is acting as a fan witch is why they play longer then any other mode i had the same problem 2 times the second time samsung wanted 160$!!! thats bull because it keeps going out so what u do is open the case and remove the cover over all the capaciters and whatnot and replace that fan in the back then cut a hole in the top of the metal case directly about the cap's that warm up and install a aditional fan to act as a chimney a little noisy but i did this and the player had been runing in aux and radio mode for a few days stright now no problems at all it's alot of work and skill but for 2 5-15 dolar fans sure beats the 160 for repair or buying a new recever!
