Re: F70

The system has detected a fault in the output section. How much are you asking of the system? Greater than 50%? That will push most systems to their limit in a short period of time...accordianman

Technics sa-dx 950 Intermittent F70 Error

There should be removable access panels under the amplifier IC's that are attached to the heatsink. Remove these panels and inspect the solder connections on the IC's and the voltage regulators that should be mounted next to them. These have always had a tendency to go bad on Technics receivers. If you resolder all of these, you should clear up your problem.

Problem with Technics SA-DX850

SA-DX750 (sister Model to SA-DX850). Showing error code F70, after a few minutes running. Checking the power rails revealed +5VA and +5VD, on the Digital Circuit Board 'A', dropping to about 2V, when fault occured. F5, T1A, on the Sub-Transformer Circuit 'M', was subject to occasional blowing. The problem was traced to an intermittent break, in the printed circuit board conductor, in the vicinity of Q1702 (+5VD regulator) collector, on the Digital Circuit Board 'A'.. Repairing this cured the problem. Note that removing F5 (above), or disconnecting CN702, CN1000A or CN904B, on the Digital Circuit board 'A', also causes this error code to be displayed. Failure of the audio output ICs, IC651 & IC801, is apparently the usual reason for this error code being dsiplayed, but it is worth checking the power rails viz. +/- 25V (Fuses F3 & F4, T6.3A, on Sub-Transformer Circuit 'M') +/- 55V, +/- 14V etc.

F70 on my reciever

Most likley it is in need of repair. I suspect the output IC. Check for bad solder connections on the IC and voltage regulators.
Remove the speakers and see if it still happens (it probably will).
