I turn on my system and it works ok for a couple of minutes. Then it started showing "fan check" for another minute, then shuts itself down. Is it the fan? How can I check that?

To answer your question, yes, it is the fan. There will be screws holding the top cover onto the unit; remove these, and find the fan(also remove any dust you find inside, as this also could render the fan useless due to airflow problems). Make sure it's not jammed or clogged or anything such, and plug the unit in, turn it on, and make sure the fan turns on(in some cases, it waits a maximum of one minute to do so.) If it does not turn on after one minute, then a new fan is needed. Any fan with the same size and power connector will do.

Av receiver has fan lock problem

Perhaps a look at the fan might reveal something? If it's dead you should take it to a pro for replacement. Continued power cycling can actually damage the unit. so if it doesn't work the first couple of times, give up.

What does FanChck mean on my samsung HT-Z320? How to I fix it?

I had the same problem with my Samsung HT-BD1250. In my case the fan did not run at any time! As a safety precaution, to prevent overheating, when the fan is malfunctioning the receiver powers off. I simply opened up the receiver and discovered that the fan was not even connected! I just plugged it in and.....Voila! Works like a charm. Be warned though that if your unit is still under warranty, opening it up will likely void the warranty.

Samsun HT-WX70 overheating and shutting down

The receiver in the Samsung ht-wx70 system that I have runs fine until all of a sudden I hear a loud bang and it shuts off. If I touch the unit, it is burning hot. I took the fan out and it works when I attached it to a 9v battery. Is it the fan or another problem that I should be looking at.

Noisy Fan

There are lots of reports of noisy fans. The closest one I can find is to fit a HT-Q70T. It's part no: AH31-00039B. It's a "Motor-Fan C151BK10A2430".

Same problem here. In my case, it's a problem with the fan. I solved this (for the time being...) by cleaning the fan.

1. remove the 3 screws fixing the cover (at the back of your DT310);
2. the 2 side covers come off easily, but to release the (plastic) top cover, you need to push in the cover at both sides to let it come off the retaining hooks (take a closer look at the side of the top cover, you'll see what I mean);
3. remove the 2 screws holding the remaining metal cover, and move this cover backwards;
4. now you can check, clean or replace the fan.

Putting it back together should be easy now. ;-)

Good luck!
