    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 HT-TX75 DVD flashes a message


First thing to do is disconnect all your speakers at the back of the receiver, then turn it back on. If it does not go into protection, post a comment and I can walk you thru troubleshooting. If it still goes into protection, your unit needs to be serviced. Hope this helps

Shuts down by itself


If there are no speakers connected and you still get the protection message, there is a problem internally. Exchange the unit while you can. The typical parts required to fix this problem will be over $75 US.

My home theatre system (sAmsung DVD home theatre system HT-Tx75)shuts down automatically after 10 minutes of listening to the radio...it says 'protection', then shuts off. i checked to see if it was on...


Hello,
Protection mode on a Samsung player most likely means that the unit is overheating due to a non or low functioning fan. Before taking it somewhere to be serviced turn the unit on and see if the fan in the back is functioning (it should be on whenever the unit is on). If it is not you can try gently blowing it out with a can of compressed air.
I am sure that you can have it serviced but it might be cheaper to purchase a new player.
Good luck and take Care,
-WN
