Question about Technics Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Technics Receiver Nonfunctional - Click, then nothing.

I have a Technics SA-GX350 5-channel surround sound receiver. The service manual can be found here.
http://www.eserviceinfo.com/downloadsm/33514/Technics_SA-GX350.html

This is a great receiver and has been working for a long time. I bought it at a yard sale about 7 years ago and have never had any problems with it. Then all of a sudden, about a week ago, it stopped working. I press the power button and I hear a click coming from either the transformer or somewhere around it. Nothing else happens. The display doesn't light up, no sound comes out of the speakers; nothing. I took it apart and inspected it the best that I could. The only problem I found was two 330 ohm resistors that appeared to have blown. I replaced them, but this did not fix the problem. No fuses are blown, and none of the components (besides the afore-mentioned resistors) appear to be damaged. I don't know what's wrong with it, and I would love to get it working. This is a very good receiver (at least for my budget), and I hope I can find a solution. Thank you

    I added a comment to the original in response to your question.

    I realized that it was in the wrong category so I made one here. I don't know how to delete the old post, nor how to reply to your question with any method other than adding a comment.

    Anyway, the resistors are designated R369 and R370

I'm not sure what entry will be emailed to you, so I have repeated the "solution" from the other entry below. Please only update one.

Thanks,

Initial entry:

There could be a number of reasons for this. It woyld help if you could indicate what resistors you changed. The circuit designation should be marked on the PC board. Please post those here and I'll look further and provide some possible solutions.

Thanks,
Dan

Digital optical output for technics 5.1 surround sound receiver


I went to the HDTV plasma manual. It stated the only way the digital optical audio output would work (from this TV) was to go to the menu, select audio and turn off the TV speakers. Basically, it had nothing to do with the technics receiver.

No surround Technics SA-AX530


There is likely separate gain controls for your surround channels on this receiver and they are probably set at -10dB. Enter the setup menu labled "level" and increase the amount for each channel equally.

Technics surround sound system


Use whatever TV sound output conforms to your receiver's input. If an optical or coaxial digital sound output is available, that is the way to get 5.1 surround sound through the SA-DX1050. But you have to assign the correct input (COAX, OPT1 or OPT2) to the selector (TV, DVD, CD). See pp 12-13 of the operationg instructions for D-Input instructions. If you don't have the manual you can download it at Panasonic.com.

I hooked two Receivers up in series a Technics SA-DX930 and a different kind I'm not sure wut kind. They worked great for a while, but when they got turned up a little louder they both quit puting out...


you blew your power amp board, you cannot hook them in series due to impediance matching and improper input levels, cheaper to replace reciever than the board
