Good Morning, I have a Technique Technics SA DX940 receiver which hums loudly whenever it is switched to "Phono" for playing the turntable. The turntable has been tested and works well. In fact, the receiver hums on "Phono" even if the turntable is disconnected. The problem is obviously the receiver. Question: Is there a removeable circuit board I can replace myself, or musy I take it in for repairs. ? If so, what is the name and part # I should purchase? Thanks for your time. H.O.

What type of turntable do you have? Some turntables must be grounded to the ground screw on the receiver. It may be the selector that needs to be cleaned. Use tuner spay cleaner (if you can still find some around) , also clean the RCA inputs. . If that does not work.. you may have to replace the receiver. The cost to repair is not worth it .

Ratnesh, I have this same receiver and the fan only comes on at certain volume levels. Unfortunately I now live in an apartment and can very rarely listen to it that loud. I had the same problem for a little while until I thought about moving the receiver to the lowest shelf with nothing on top of it. This seems to have worked so far although it does still get quite warm. Good luck!

SOURCE: technics turntable plays but no sound with Sherwood receiver

The problem is the fact that the new receiver has no phono input. The phono input has an extra stage of amplification built in. Your receiver is working fine. You need to purchase a phono pre-amp. These run around $20. Connect the turntable to the preamp and the presmp output to any line level input on your new receiver and everything will work as expected.

HOW CAN I CONNECT A MIXER TO A TECHNICS SA-DX940 AV


I used the manual downloaded from http://www.manuals365.com/technics/sadx940.html

Try using the final stereo output of the mixer as the input to the CD or Tape or VCR inputs.and use the switches on the fromt of the DX940 as necessary.
The specificatios state input sensitivity is 27 mY so your mixer needs a low output..
No reason it shouldn't work.

Cannot play my ipod through my technics amp


You would need a mini jack to stereo rca wire. Insert the mini jack to your Ipod's headphones, then plug the stereo rca to your amp inputs. If it's a receiver, plug into any of the inputs (aux, tape etc) except "phono or turntable", then switch to respected input on the receiver. Be sure all volumes on both units are down during this process, then gradually turn up both volume to normal level.

I am planning to get an SA-DX930. How old is it? can it be hooked to a phonograph and a cd burner to copy music from albums? what is the total wattage? Thanks, Ted Vidan


1. the manual date is 1999 if that tells you anything
2. It has a native Phono Preamp for that old-school turntable
3. CD Burner: yes. Attach it in the Tape Loop and optical digital input for playback.

The CD recorder should also have digital input(s) so you can can capture digital audio from a variety of sources.
