Technics su x501 low sound from amp

I have a Technics su-x501 and have very low sound levels even when the amp is turned up full. it is the same for the headphone, you can barely hear them even with the amp up full. The fan does not run, but i understand this only comes on when it get hot. i have checked for crossed cables at speakers and amp. checked all the simple stuff like balance control, mute button. from what i have read elsewhere this is a common problem, but can't find a solution yet. Thanks Steve

please bring a good contact cleaner from radio shack near you and apply the spray over the socket of the headphone(the place where you put your headphone jack)take headphone jack out and apply spray in and insert the jack in and out many times.-also check your system setup and confirm that all speaker are on- no mute button pressed-no cable is disconnected.

SOURCE: Technics SU-G95 Amplifier and no sound on left speakers

Usually this is a defect in the output amp IC. If you have no experience with repairs of these types of units, have it checked by a service shop. If the output AMP IChas failed, it will cost about $75 for a replacement. This unit uses an RSN3306P IC .

SOURCE: Technics Su-z25 integrated amp.:no sound on left

Hi dgeiger50,

I've suspected that your main problem is the output amplifier stage, since when you turned the volume way up you slightly hear the sound, meaning your pre-amplifier stage is working. The most common defect is the output Transistor/IC and its coupling/bias electrolytic capacitors. This kind of problem needs to attend by an experienced technician to confirmed where the fault is. Also, you have to consider bad solder joints in that area. This will do the same symptom if there is a cold solder/dry joints.

Hope I helped you.

Have a nice day!

Thanks for using Fixya.

Turntable is playing quiet


Hi, if your not plugged into your amp via a dedicated phiono input, Ie CD or Aux then you need a preamp to boost the line levels. Cheers john. Styluscity

Su-x501 turning off intermitently


If your unit is intermittent, check the speaker wires on the back of the amplifier for stray threads of wire, next! the printed circuit board underneath should be checked for bad or cracked solder joints, finally one more parts are defective, tough problem to nail down, recommend technician.

I want to no how to wire the hole system up just picture diagram SU-X501


This appears to be a tough one to find for free. There is some info out there - but it will cost a few bucks. The service manual or sometimes called a "shop manual" is for those that work on damaged units - and is probably over the top for your needs. The operating manual or owner's manual is likely the same as the one that came with the unit when new. Either can be had at the site below for $15 and $10 respectively:

I am not affiliated with this or any other site that charges for manuals, tips, advice, etc.; and only offer it as a source for the info you're looking for. I hope this helps!

Technics SU-V98 No Sound


If I understand your posting correctly, the amp works using the Aux In connectors but not using the VCR1 even when VCR1 is selected correct? If that is the case, there is an internal electronic switching IC (TA9263 I think) that may be defective. This is not a complex repair and can be confirmed easily by any shop that does audio repair. They will trace the incoming signal with an oscilloscope to the IC and see nothing come out when VCR1 is selected. The IC costs less than $10.

Technics SU-V2 keeps cutting out


An amp will cut out if the output protection circuit kicks in. This circuit compares output power against the preset level. Each channel has it's own, independent protector. There are calculations that can be done, but for a novice the rule of thumb is to "never use a speaker with a power rating less than the amp AND a lower impedance than stated". Typically using a 4 ohm load on a 8 ohm system is inviting disaster. Even if the system does not become a smoke generator, you might notice that though "louder", the sound quality is deteriorated. Many "audiophiles" often hook up some combinations of speakers to have "surround" without really understanding that the collective impedance actually changes (generally lowers).

Channel has switched off.


Make shure speaker wires are not crossed at amp or at speaker terminals. Check balance control is at center. Check sound with headphones to see if final amp to speakers is the problem. Try switching imputs on back panel from right to left see if same speaker is on,.Try all loudness controls and tape dubbing buttons to see if any are dirty.
Good Luck
