Question about Samsung HT-X20 Home Cinema 600W Theater System
My Samsung HT-E330 keeps going to protection mode, while using the AUX function, all other functions work normally. I took it back to the shop where I bought it and had it checked, but they didn't find anything. The saddest part is that I bought it about two weeks ago, which means it's broken from the start. What should I do?

SOURCE: 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!

protection error message means that your unit's fan is not working
it is a feature to keep your unit from overheating
check if there is anything blocking the fan of your unit from rotation or replace the fan

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.
Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.
You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.
If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.
If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'nekkid'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.
