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?

    The unit has begun to turn on and off at random times (when the top case is removed it will not happen due to the unit running cooler), 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.

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.

Turntable hookup to AUX or CD (no Phono input) only producing very weak sound, even at full volume


You are doing nothing wrong at all. It's just that as you say it has no phono input. Which means the sockets you have will NOT amplify the signal. So you need to buy a magnetic cartridge pre-amp and once connected to the aux the weak signal will be at the normal level.

I have an old Kenwood that has CD, Phono and 2 vidio hook-ups. I suspect the "video" means a VHS tape player, will my DVD player work.on this unit.


You could have named the model to make this easier.


"PHONO" is the only designated connection on an audio device that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify and frequency-correct the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge. Look up RIAA equalization.

All other analog stereo IN's and Outs are Line Level and GENERIC, meaning anything BUT PHONO, regardless of what the silk-screened labels say. So, yes, your DVD player's analog audio should work.

My Pioneer car stereo stops all audio signal after a couple of minutes regardless whether i'm playing a CD or the radio, but the stereo stays on. and the CD seconds and minutes still count, do you know why...


Check your connections to your speakers and amp and look for loose wires touching metal. I believe your stereo is fine, this has something to do with your speakers and the speaker wire

These units are capacitor coupled between stages. It sound to me like one or more of those caps are defective. There is an extra stage of amplification for the Phono inputs. Check the phono pre-amp section for defective caps. Dan

Connection compatibility


Connect the supplied short RCA "Y" adapter cable to the mini jack of the transmitter base unit. Connect the "Y" adapter plugs to the TAPE 2 "REC" L and R jacks. These jacks will supply "line out" levels of any source selected at the Kenwood to the EWOS1 internal amplifier. The line out levels are "fixed" so changing the volume levels of the Kenwood will NOT change the volume out of the EWOS1 speakers. The EWOS1 volume will be controlled by the volume up / down buttons on the front of each speaker, or by the incuded remote when directed at the speaker(s).

The signals from the TAPE 2 jacks are ALWAYS on regardless of the source selected, so the Kenwood volume can be turned to minium and still provide an unchanged sound level from the EWOS1 speakers. Likewise, if listening to FM, Phono, CD, etc. in the room that the Kenwood's speakers are located, the OWS1 speakers will by playing the same FM, Phono, CD, etc program - unless they have been powered off. The point is, that unlike having to choose FM, CD, etc to listen to those soreces, you should never select TAPE 2 as a source. If TAPE 2 is selected, the KENWOOD would attempt to amplify TAPE 2's "PLAY" jacks, which I assume are not being used.

AUDIO/SOUND


The internal audio amplifier is defective. If you don't want to send it back to garmin and pay their flat rate of $175.00 for repair (I didn't ) then by all means do so. If not then go to Radio Shack and purchase a battery operated amplified speaker. It is small and plugs easily into the side of your unit. Best of all it's only ($14.95) It works great because it bypasses the internal speaker and the sound id just as good if not better then the garmin speaker- You can control the volume by using the settings on your unit. The other alternitive is to purchase an FM transmitter. By pluging this into the unit it will transmit the voice into your car radio. the only problem is that you havwe to have it tunned to one station and won't be able to listen to your radio. Its sad that garmin does not repair thes units for a better price especially when they know there is problems with these speakers. I foe one will never buy another GArmin product and i tell everyone i know about this and advise them the same. Hopes this helps !!!

Radio problem... need a memory set to the radio


Use a 12 volt DC test light, or a DC voltmeter & probe until you find one wire/terminal that has power constantly, whether key is on or off. That's the one to join it to, for your memory. Your radio power wire will go to the other unless you want to be able to have your radio working all the time when you turn it on, regardless of whether key is on,or accessory position, and if that's your preference, join it to same.
