Technics sa da8, no sound

My Technics SA DA8 does not have any sound. For a long time, I could solve this issue by turning it off, letting it rest for a couple of hours, and then turning it back on. As long as it stayed on, it was fine. But, if I turned it off and then turned it on within 5 minutes or so, I wouldn't have any sound. The "rest" period had to be longer than 5 minutes. Any ideas on this one?

Keeping your SA-DA8 cool


When I first bought this I noticed that it runs very hot even on low volume levels. I took it in for repair and told the tech that the fan didn't come on even when hot. He said "works as designed - the fan is output-power-driven, not temperature driven."

Wishing to prolong the life of ma SA-DA8, I used an old computer power supply and muffin fan. Plugged the PS into the controlled AC output of the amp, and the fan into the PS. Jumpered the "power-on" pins of the PS. Laid the fan on top of the amp, padded with some foam tape, and it now stays a lot cooler (and the fan is very quiet, though not silent.)

Power amp output IC have an overheat. Cool it down and restart at
low volume. Send your e-mail if this did solve your problem.

Max. wattage for speakers w/ Technics Receiver SA-GX100?


I too have a Technics SA-GX100 and it's rated at 2 x 40W @ 8 Ohms. I have the Technics SB-2840 floor model speakers hooked to it, which are rated at 200W Music Input - 8 ohms. It sounds very nice just to be a 40W receiver.

Overload technics SA-GX390


It sounds like you have a wiring issue. Try looking for a bad wire or crossed wires between the positive and negitive jacks on the back of the unit.

Be sure that the EQ settings aren't accidentally putting you over the top as far as demand is concerned. Bass-heavy material? Same conditions apply...accordianman

I hooked two Receivers up in series a Technics SA-DX930 and a different kind I'm not sure wut kind. They worked great for a while, but when they got turned up a little louder they both quit puting out...


you blew your power amp board, you cannot hook them in series due to impediance matching and improper input levels, cheaper to replace reciever than the board
