My a102jamo surround sound speakers and working

The Jamo speakers need an AV Receiver to drive them properly. The TV doesn't have the correct outputs nor does it have the power required.

The Jamo kit consists of a powered subwoofer ans 5 small surround speakers. Each surround speaker needs to be powered by the speaker output from an an AV Receiver. The subwoofer should also be connected to the receiver, but the connection is a phono/RCA lead from the receiver's "Sub Out" socket.

Your TV connects to the AV receiver via the Optical out.

I just purchased a yamaha RX-V767 receiver. I have a polk surround sound speaker system 5.1 that have an impededance of 8 ohms. The receiver has an impedece adjustment knob on it. would it be safe to...

No, you don't want to do that. The Ohm output on the amplifier must match the speakers. Run 8 Ohm speakers on 8 Ohm and run all your speakers on the same impedance (Ohms). Your gonna burn your amplifier up if you run different impedances.

Rca 42 in lcd it shuts off 5 sec after being turned on

This could be a power supply problem, these tv's use a series of switching mode power supplies usually mounted in the same circuit board , the light flashing is an indicator that this is the problem, but these boards are expensive so you may want to get the tv looked at before anything else. You do not mention if the sound remains in your description of the symptom, but just in case it does then a back light inverter could be at fault. hope this helps. thanks for leaving you feed back.

Resistors can fail from being turned up to hire, wires getting bumped together or against metal, speakers being wrong ohms, or just plainly overheating.

Onkyo TX-DS494 stereo receiver won't turn on.

First, check which type of protect first.

3 seconds (DC protect) OR immediately shut down (Over Current protect)

How to confirm?
1.Unplug the amp.
2.Remove the metal cover.
3.You will see a long vertically installed pre-amp board mounted next to those large power transistors fixed by 12 screws on a large aluminium heat sink.
4.Remove this long vertically installed board mounted by 2 screws.
5.With 2 screws removed, just pulling this board out and hold it with one hand.
6.Plug the amp and switch it on.
7.If your amp stays ON forever, the problem is from this long board.
8.If switch off at once, the problem is from power amp board.
Try the above- mentioned steps. If DC protect, write an email to me via searching you tube SR600 capacitor replacement. Don't be afraid.
So many people wrote to me.

If over-current protect do the
following steps
(O)unplug the amp.
(1)download DS-TX494 service manual.
(2)open the amp metal cover.
(3)measure 7 large white resistors resistance loacated next to power transistors mounted on a large heat sink with black probe touching the middle pin and red probe to first/left or third/right pin.
(4)If this 3 Pins large white colour 0.22ohm x 2 resistor is open with infinity ohms ,
(5)replace it and jot down this channel for example left surround faulty. Usually only 1 channel went faulty.
(5a)When the white resistor didn't burn, "2 channels" were damaged due to bad soldering joint of the large white resistor, however.
(5b)When this happened, time taken of shut-down due to over-current is 3 seconds NOT immediately.
(6)the two large power transistors next to this white resistor 0.22 ohms x2 should also be replaced.
(7)plug the amp
(8)switch it on
(9)if ok, troubleshooting get done
(10)if not ok
(11)replace ALL the components of this power amp channel.
(12)pre-amp section no need to check.
remember if not OK, the replaced 0.22ohm x 2 resistor and 2 power transistors maybe shorted again. Check them first. If OK, replace ALL Components in this channel except 0.22 ohm x 2 and 2 transistors. 0.22 ohm x 2 means left and middle pin 0.22 ohm as well as right and middle pin also 0.22 ohm that are 2 pieces of resistors with 0.22 ohm in a large white 3 pins resistor.
Remember sometimes the
0.22 ohm white resistor is normal. If so, use a digital multimeter to measure the be bias transistor voltage via multimeter diode test function. You can compare the normal value,580mV to 650mV with faulty one,3.2mV. And the CE resistance is 1.8ohms only instead of 3 Mega ohms.

RCA Sub-Woofer

Did you try making sure the subwoofer is turned on under the set up menu on the Sony Receiver?

Press Set Up, Press the left or right button above the scroll wheel until you get to SW. It should say SW: ON or SW: OFF. If it says SW: OFF, use the Scroll wheel to scroll right until it says SW: ON. Also, make sure you aren't in 2CH mode, try A.F.D or surround sound.

Spherex surround sound wont stay on

Mr. Vargas is right mine also won't turn on and upon further inspection I found burn discoloration on the boad where the two power cables are connected. The burn spot is where the four diodes are locaed and the big power cable connection. I am not sure how to replace these diodes or where to find them. Never done this stuff but will try for sure. Please post if you have any suggestions. thanks
