Question about Samsung HT-TQ85 Five DVD 5.1 Channel Home Theater Audio System System

1 Answer

Samsung Home theater goes into Protection mode

I took the fan out to have it tested and the fan works fine. It will not work when plugged back into the the unit. It is just a 2 prong attachment directly to the circuit board. Evidently it is not getting power from this source. Can I get this fixed? If so is it something I can do myself?

No and yes . there is a short in the circuit board where the fan is. i had the same problem and i fixed it by takeing a power adapter out of a old alarm clock.(part where it plugs in then a little box with two wires.)i cut the outlet plug(big thick wires) off about 6 in down from the little box.then striped the wires and hooked them to the outlet plug on the surround system.(just twisted them where it connects to the large power adapter)(i used some electrical nuts to fasten them down)then i screwed it somewhere on the side and then striped the skinny wires and cut the fan wires at the base and attached them to the skinny wires.(twist them together a and put electrical tape around it)problem with this is that the fan won't go off unless you put a switch on it.if you got any questions feel free to email me at gamecrazy944@yahoo.com

Protection on error message


Protect mode will kicking whenever a fault is detected.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

Internal fault.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

A common cause are failures in the amplifier output stage, the drivers, and some of the support components. You will have to send the unit out for service.
