Question about Technics Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a technics av control receiver sa dx1050. I have two digital audio inputs for 5.1, one for the cable box and the other for my xbox 360. The sound is going crazy - its super loud, breaks up, and will be extremely loud, right up untill I turn the volume off. My stero settings arent effected at all, just digital input. I unplugged the reciever, no good. I change the audio settings, still not good. I have never have this happen untill about 2 weeks ago. Do I need a new reciever? Ii has to be the digital audio, but how do you fix that?

    Ok, the sound is back to working now. I cleaned the unit. But if it blows out again, I am going to try to do what you suggest. How in the heck would i check for a loose wire, or the voltage on the capacitors? If that's the case, then I guess I am buying a new reciever.

    Ok, its back to not working. All the conections were fine, so I am about to dissasemble the unit. I'll spend a little time trying to fix it, but I already started pricing out new recievers at best buy. Thanks for the help.

You need to check all the connections if they are properly connected then the issue is any internal wire going loose or is burned. Also this can happen due to a blown fuse inside the receiver. Please open the unit and check the voltages of the capacitors on the sound board. If its a old Panasonic receiver and you are looking to buy a new one then please check this link.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

    Technics sa-dx1050 overload

    if any one of the channels was shorted out, even momentarily, that channel's output transistors would likely be blown causing it to stay in protection mode. (or overload as you put it). Time to visit the repair shop.

    Not getting true surround sound

    The only way to get Dolby 5.1 audio out of the Xbox will be via fiber optic cable from the Xbox to a Dolby Digital amplifier - which will output a decoded 5.1 signal to a 6 channel amplifier and 5 speakers and one sub-woofer. I doubt the Logitech speaker system has a Dolby 5.1 decoder built in with the amplifier for under $100, but I can't say for sure. If the Logitech has a an optical (or TOSLink) input, connect it to the Xbox and follow the instructions below.

    To configure your audio settings, follow these steps:
    1. Start the Xbox 360 console without a disc in the disc tray.
    2. In the System section of the Xbox Dashboard, select Console Settings.
    3. In the Console Settings area, select Audio.
    4. In the Audio Settings area, configure settings for analog output or digital output:
      • Analog output settings:
        • Dolby Pro Logic II: Select this setting for stereo systems or Dolby Pro Logic II-compatible systems.
        • Mono: Select this setting for systems that do not support stereo output. Note If you have connected to Xbox LIVE and downloaded any AutoUpdates, the Mono option will not be available.
      • Digital output settings:
        • Digital Stereo: Select this setting to use digital stereo output.
        • Dolby Digital 5.1: Select this setting to use Dolby Digital output.
        • Enable WMA Pro: Select this setting to enable WMA Pro pass-through if your receiver supports the WMA Pro format.
    Note You must use one of the following cables to support digital output:
    • Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable
    • VGA HD AV cable
    • S-video AV cable
    • Advanced SCART AV cable
    • Japanese HDAV D-connector AV cable

    XBOX 360

    How to Connect XBOX 360

    This is the back of the Xbox 360. The ports for the power cable, A/V cable, and ethernet cable are pretty easy to find. When you set up your Xbox 360, make sure it is in a well ventilated area that is free of dust. Dust and overheating are the two main causes of problems in electronics so choosing the right placement for your Xbox 360 is important.

    This is the standard Xbox 360 A/V cable that comes with the premium version of the Xbox 360. The wide silver end connects to your Xbox 360 while the other end connects to your TV. The Yellow (video) cable is for standard, non-HDTV sets. You will also use the Red+White audio cables for a standard set. If you have a newer TV or an HDTV set, you can use the Red+Green+Blue video connections along with the Red+White audio connections.

    This shot shows what the back of most TVs look like. If you have a standard TV, you'll only have the Yellow+Red+White connections. If you have a newer TV or HDTV, you should have the same connections that are shown in the pic. This step isn't too hard since the cables from the Xbox 360 and ports on the back of your TV are all color-coded.

    If, and only if, you have an HDTV and want to use your Xbox 360 in 480p, 720p, or 1080i resolutions you have to slide a little switch over on your A/V cable. On the end of the A/V cable that connects to the Xbox 360, there is a little switch that you'll need to click over. If you do not have an HDTV, you can skip this step.

    Now that you have the audio/video cables connected, the next step is to hook up the power supply. Connect the two parts as shown in the picture and then connect the "power brick" end to your Xbox 360 and the other end to a wall outlet. The big power brick needs plenty of ventilation just like the main system so try to have an open space on a shelf for it. It is not recommended that you set it on the carpet.

    Once you have everything hooked up, you are ready to go. Press the large circular power button to get things started. If you have a wired controller, plug it into a USB port behind the little USB door. If you have a wireless controller, hold the silver "X" button in the middle of the controller until the upper left quadrant of the system power button as well as the ring around the "X" button on the controller light up. If it doesn't light up, press the controller connect button on the Xbox 360 as well as the connect button on the top of the controller.
    If this is the first time the system has been used, you'll have to go through an onscreen setup process. This is simply setting up your player profile, choosing HDTV settings if available, and/or signing up for Xbox Live service. The system walks you through everything.
    Now you are ready to play.

    Operationg instructions says it is "F 70". When it appears it says to turn the unit off, disconnect the aC power supply cord, then reconnect and turn theunit on. Consult your dealer if "F-70" remains on the display.

    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

    Hook up your Xbox to a Dolby Digital Decoder

    Xbox® is the first and only game console to support in-game Dolby® Digital 5.1 surround sound. This lets you experience all the game sounds from your home theater system in full 5.1 surround. Before you get started, make sure you've got the following: A digital audio output. A free optical digital input on your receiver. An optical digital audio cable. Digital Audio Output Your Xbox didn't come standard with a digital audio output, but you're gonna need one for this to work, so hightail it to the store for the Advanced AV Pack or High Definition AV Pack, both of which have digital audio outputs. Microsoft makes both of them. You can also buy third-party AV cables for Xbox?but make sure they have a digital audio output. Free Optical Digital Input For this slammin' sound system to work properly, you need at least one free optical digital input on your receiver. Ready to Hook It Up? Let's Go! Connect the digital audio output to your Xbox. Connect one end of the optical digital audio cable to the digital audio output on your Xbox and the other end to the optical digital input on your receiver. Turn on your Xbox with no disc in the disc drive. In the Xbox Dashboard, select Settings. Select Audio. You will see an Audio Mode screen that shows Dolby Digital and DTS status. Select Dolby Digital. You will see the question "Does your stereo system support Dolby Digital Audio?" Select Yes. You will see Dolby Digital Enabled in the audio screen. Your Xbox is now ready for Dolby Digital gameplay. Insert a game disc and play!
