Question about Samsung HT-TX72 Theater System

2 Answers

Samsung HT-TX72 Theater System continously turning itself off

It does flash the "protection" message right before it powers down. From what I have read this is caused by a heat problem, so I totally removed the top case to reduce any heat build-up inside the cabinet but it did not make a difference. I have read about this problem before and was inquiring if you guys have heard about it and what the solution is?

thanks

I have the same system and the same problem. I took it apart and the components by the fan were extremely hot and the little red componets actually burn the protective cover off of two of them. I unscrewed the cooling fan and reversed it so it would blow the hot air out instead of sucking in air and it works like a charm now problem solve.

Protection means that there is something wrong with the fan of your unit

it is a feature which avoids the unit from over heating

check if there is anything blocking the fan from moving/rotating

UNIT WON'T TURN ON.


These are also used in microwave ovens so most hardware stores will have them on hand.
Buy two; if the first one blows, don't install the second until you check back here; this will mean you will need some further investigation. Fuses do blow because of metal fatigue (expanding and contracting with on/off cycles) but if the second one blows, the fuse is protecting against larger problems such as a failed output module.

I have a samsung ht-tx75 and it keeps shutting down every 10 minutes saying protection.the fan is working


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.

Samsung home theater


After having my unit for a year, it now reads this PROTECTION message. I tried to restore factory settings also before calling Samsung & they said something wrong with the cooling fan. Haven't tore into it yet, but does the units come with a fuse that might be blown. I'm tring to find free schematics on the net but hard to track down. If you just got yours, take it back to the store & get a new one!
