My HT-X250 trips off then says "Protection" on the screen. I am wondering if this is the same problem and I just need to replace the fan?

I'm afraid that's teh case with your unit. PROTECTION error actually means the unit is overheating and it shuts itself off to avoid further damage. Just make sure that there are no other device below the unit and that there is adequate ventilation at the back.

If all else fails, the unit's fan is definitely defective.

HotSprings hot tub trips circuit breaker

Could be a wrong breaker for that circuit or a problem with the tub.
• first see if there are other lines on that circuit- should be only the tub.
• Check the specs for the tub that the circuit is the correct amperage.
• if clear on those items, there is a problem with the unit and that's another question.

This is a protection mode. Always look at the back to see the correct resistance of speakers to use and never double speakers up. If you wire it up correctly it will not trip out. If it trips out anyways then it is time for servicing.

My Samsung HT-x250 keeps shutting down. First of all after about an hour and then ever 5 - 10 mins after that?

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.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as another possible root cause for intermittent shutdown.

Trips the breaker, won't come on at all. Wonder if it would be the capacitor, or the control board.

Normally due to less effective of capacitor it trips. Replace capacitor and check your compressor. If still trips, problem with compressor.

Had this same issue with my Samsung HT-X50, it seems these systems have cheap fans. Mine was under warranty but when I contacted samsung they wanted me to pay to ship it to them. **** that, it would of cost me 70 to ship.

What I did was open the unit take the fan and go to a computer store asking for a similar one, I got all this done for about 10 bucks. **** that samsung warranty

Protection circuit trips a low audio output level MX-W50

When you unplug one speaker (from the back of the receiver) and the rec. works good, then the speaker that you unplugged is the bad one, or the wire that is hooked up to that speaker is bad. Repair the speaker or the wire.
