Samsung home theater HT Z410 fan chk will not stay on anymore

We have had our home theater HT Z410 for almost one year and it is now saying fan check and cuts off and will not stay on anymore. Guess you can say it died. Where can I get the part to fix this problem? I know it is the fan, duh! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
Amanda

Can you see or hear if the fan is running? Is there sufficient clearance (4 inches) between it and the nearest surface for airflow? Is it clogged up with dust bunnies? You may be able to fix it yourself.

Unplug the unit. Look inside the vent at the rear. Reach in with a non-conductive probe to see if the fan turns freely. If not, it's bound up and needs replacement or unclogging.

If it turns freely with power off but doesn't rotate with power on, it's dead.

If it turns sufficiently fast with power on and you still have Fan Check, it's a sensor.

Resolve this issue and it will probably stop trying to protect itself by shutting off.

All I had to do was simply blow on the fan to clear it of the dust. Works fine now.

I took off the cover and unscrewed the fan (2 screws in back right). The fan was sticking somewhat and I tried turning it with my finger. This worked which told me it was just a bit clogged. I blew on it a few times and it was still sticking. I then put a bit of WD-40 on it and it works fine now.. Looked for a replacement but could not find one anywhere unless I ordered a mass quantity.

I need help , hooking up my samsung HT-Z410 HOME THEATER, TO MY LG HDTV, SO THAT WHEN I'M WATCHING REGULAR TV THE SOUND OF THE TV CAN COME OUT TRUE THE HOME THEATER SPEAKERS, CAN IT BE DONE? CAN A COMCAST...


first of all here is a link to the manual....http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200802/20080220095448484_HT-Z410-XAA.pdf and yes it can be conected thru your comcast but you wil need to buy probably cheapest at wallmart an RF Modulator (Less than 20 dollars) and from your cable box (vidieo out, or to tv) install the cable to the rf mod unit (ant in) and that converts it from coaxial cable to rca (meaning a cord with yellow ,red,white push on connectors) plug the red and white into aux input on surround system (see #3 on manual view on backside of surround unit)and and you got it.It your tv does not have a yellow vidieo connection (which is where the the yellow plug into tv)in the back then add a coaxial splitter after the comcast box so that the 1 coax line goes to tv and the other coax goes to the rf mod then thru RCA cables to the surround sound.you may need to buy xtra cables but they are cheap. hope i helped........you may try asking family or friends for the above equipment i described.the newer tv's dont need it and many people have this stuff layen around...good look

Getting a "fan chk" message on my Samsung HT-TZ512


Did u ever find a solution? The room I use the home theater in gets quite hot. I use an air conditioner but I think prolonged use in the heat has ruined the fan(s). The speakers will power up, and sound can be heard but after a minute or two the CHK FAN will come across the display, and ultimately, shut the system off. Is this what happens to you? T?hanks for any and all responses!,

Samsung HT-TWZ312 surround sound probs


With the home theater system off, press the 0-1-3-5 buttons in that order on the home theater's remote control.

Power on the home theater system.

With the wireless module on, press the [ID SET] button on the back of the wireless module for five seconds.

If your home theater continues to display rear check after you have tried the steps above, call Samsung Customer Care at 1-800-SAMSUNG (1-800-726-7864). Have your model number and serial number on hand to set up service.

Hope this helps!

Fan chk problem too


it means the home theater is over heating and the unit will shut down to prevent any damage. This can happen if the unit is stacked along with other electronic devices or the unit is in an enclosed area that prevents the unit from cooling properly. To decrease the chance of overheating, relocate your home theater to a more open area.

If the home theater display reads PROTECTION every time you turn it on, no matter where or how the unit is placed, it needs service. To set up service call Samsung Customer Care at 1-800-SAMSUNG (1-800-726-7864). Have your model number and serial number on hand to set up service.

Samsung HTDS610 Home Theater System power wont stay on!


I have the same problem.
I did my research and this is the solution:

Your HT system is overheated and the fan is not working. Just replace the fan and you will be good to go.
