Technics SA GX130D receiver amp keeps cutting out

Hi. Had this receiver amp for about 13 years which has always been very reliable. We moved house in the summer and the whole stereo system was in storage for about 3 months. I set it up again last week and now the amp cuts out after about 5 minutes. If you switch on and off it starts again and each time you get a little longer out of it, going up to about 40 mins.
Wondered if you know what the problem might be? Thanks guys.

Re: Technics SA GX130D receiver amp keeps cutting out

This is either due to heating problems or You may need a new power unit inside.

Try having the amp out in the room so it has plenty of air, make sure nothing is blocking those vents

Hi, I have the Technics SA-AX530 amplifier and I was wondering if there is a way I can turn my subwoofer up through the amp? Can't find anything on the remote, please let me know if there is anyway I can...

Hello, I searched all thru the service manual of the Technics SA-AX530 Receiver, and I have to say that there is not any way to turn the volume of the subwoofer up (or down) alone. The only control of the sound that affects the subw. level is the BASS control, but it controls also the bass at the speakers too.
Good luck.

Technics SU-X9920D amp cuts out due to overheating unit gets very hot fan motor has been replaced there is also scorching to the PCB

Keep a fire extinguisher handy and never walk away from it while it's turned on.

If you're NOT overdriving it and it has sufficient all around clearance for coolign airflow you should take it to a competent technician for evaulation before you burn the house down.

In the low range of the volume of my Technics SA-GX130D the sound is poor. I think the potentiometer should be changed, but where can I find such. Tnx for helping me out

Try spraying it first with Servisol Video 40. You can get it from electronic shops such as Maplin (UK) or Radioshack (USA). It could be just dirt!

Device code for Technics SA GX530

I would TellYa but it would require that you first sign up for the TellYa Premium Plan. Best of luck with this little scam.

Amp is cutting out for no apparent reason

Hi daytondoug.
The amp will be suffering from dry solder joint. Is very common for this to occur,caused by heat stressed soldering about power components in the output and power regulator stages. This something you could attend to yourself, but only if you have good soldering skills. If not, then it would not be an expensive repair to have a good Tech to repair for you. Best bet is to find a mate to do the work for you if you are not up to soldering. Or get some junk boards, a decent soldering iron(Goot and Weller make some low cost ones that will do) remember that your work will be limited by your tools and skill. Good Luck

Hi fi wont turn on !

hi. im assuming its a technics / panasonic system judging by the F 61 error code? try testing the cooling fan at the rear (assuming it has one) i once had the same error code on my technics amp and it turned out to be a faulty cooling fan. after replacement out of a scrap unit, the amp worked perfect.
