Question about Technics SA-DX950 Receiver

1 Answer

Technics SA-DX950 The unit has begun to turn on and off at random times, regardless of whether I'm listening to radio, phono, or cd. Regardless of which set of speakers is connected. You can here a distinct "click" when it goes on and off. Can this be repaired or do I need to get a new unit?

Sounds like the speaker protection relay is operating probably from a dc condition appearing on power amplifiers outputs. probable cause is dry solder joints to the output stages. will need some reworking of the PA stage soldering to fix.

I have an old Technics SA-GX300 receiver that works fine except that the screen indicates that muting is on (still produces volume but at much lower levels). I lost the remote to the receiver. Is there...

Reliance on the remote instead of walking across the room to touch the unit will not solve anything. On many receivers, Muting is cancelled if the volume knob is turned to a louder level. Try that.

There's a used original remote for $12 delivered on eBay right now.

Technics SA-DX950 intermitently sounds blown out

There are poor solder connections at the output amp pacs and the voltage regulators. Once these are resoldered the problem should go away. If you can solder, resolder any connections that appear grainy or have rings. If you can not, this should be effectively a labor only repair for any shop that works on audio gear.

Technics SA-DX950 has lost digital sound

This may sound like a silly check, but verify that the tape monitor switch is not engaged. What is the quality of the sound when turned up? Is the cound clear or raspy?

Technics SA-DX950 surround sound problems

The most likely culprit here is the output protection relay. The contacts are a little corroded and the higher volume "jumps the gap" temporarily "cleaning" the contacts. The relay should be changed. I don't have the manual with me, but the following relays are in the unit. One of them is the speaker relay:

Part # Cost
RSY0054-C $12.63
RSY0040M-0 $ 5.89
