Fan motor seems weak, must be started by flicking it with a finger. Know how to replace the fan motor, can it be done where it sits or does the whole board need to come out with it.....?

Re: Teac stereo receiver model # AGV8520

One or more output channels has dc voltage present or the protection circuit itself is at fault. Protection ckt keeps speaker destroying DC from reaching the speakers. Connect a dc meter before the speaker relay(s) to isolate which channel if any, is bad. The protection ckt has a small value electrolytic cap connected to the power supply that needs to be checked. Small so that as soon as power is turned off the relay(s) release. This cap will fail causing this error. Measure the AC ripple across this cap, over a couple volts, replace. Also this error could be caused by a missing supply. Inspect all heat sinked parts and other parts for bad connections.

I have this issue, my teac ag d7900 which itself off to standby and when I switch it "on" again, it says protect and shut itself down again

Right. This means that either you have a short in your speaker cable somewhere or the short-detector circuitry inside has problems. Disconnect all speaker cables and turn the receiver on. If the symptom goes away, turn the receiver off again and connect one of the speaker wires. Repeat until it starts to go into protect again. When it does, the last speaker you hooked up has a short somewhere in the wire.
If protect always comes on, you'll need to get the unit serviced.

How can u tell if your internal speakers are blowed?

Hi Patricia,

You may need a professional cleaning of all the switches internally. If you are up to it. Compressed air with an electronic aerosol cleaning solution is the first approach. Over time these parts develop oxidation. The voltage levels are small and the signal cannot be generated.You need to know what too clean, most are visible. You can also look for internal fuse protection. Make sure when the cover is removed to pull the power first. Some higher end Amplifiers provide protection. You will need a digital multi-meter or equivalent to test the fuses.

So before doing all of that. There is a reset switch. It is located between the speaker switches on the face of the receiver. At the top and in the middle left center of the display. Not at the speaker buttons on the left.

That function may be tripped. Reset it twice and try testing with different speakers if it fails again. It may trip instantaneously if there are abnormal voltage levels present in the circuit that arouse protection.

I have located and offer you the Manual PDF. Go here first and try the following. On page 8 in the manual. Titled, " Name of each Control" (D). There is a location diagram for you to observe. Please take some time and look this over.

Finally, if you need someone to talk too. The You Tube Video has an outlet store tied to it that offers live help.

Receiver keeps flashing "PROTECT"

The protect message indicates that a problem was detected in the last stage of the amplifier and that it has shutdown to prevent further damage. Usually this indicates that the output transistors have failed. Any shop that works on audio should be able to repair this. Expect a part cost in the $20-$40 range. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost.

You may have shorted the speaker wires. Remove all wires from the output connections and make doubly sure no strands are left there. Turn volume to zero and turn the receiver on. If the problem persists, you probably fried the output stage. Have it repaired.
