Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

LG Xtremo LM-M1040, and over the last few months, when listening to music, the system turns it self off. To rectify I have to disconnect the powert from the wall socket for a number of seconds then plug it back in again, and it works. Now it will not turn back on.

    Have the same unit with the same problem. Found that running the unit without the right hand (when facing it) side panel, it will run continuously (12 hours). Adding extra heat did not bring the problem on. Re-soldered the power supply board with no joy. Replaced the power supply PTC fuse for good measure (TH901) as this can eventually fail.

    I have the LG LM M1040 stereo system and it has the same problem, I just recently opened it up and replaced the stock fan with a larger 12cm PC fan that runs on 12v (the same as the stock fan) and nothing happens the doesn't spin or anything, I have tested the fan separately and it still works, is it possible that the fan isn't getting any power if not, where is a place where I can solder on some extra wires and power the fan?

I suspect that this is a design problem guys. The fan in this unit is fine, it only turns on when volume is turned up high & fan speed varies with volume.
The problem I think is the STRX6759 on power board. The aluminium heatsink is too small to dissipate enough of the heat from the device. You will burn yourself touching it!!
The STRX6759, whilst I can't find the datasheet on the component it looks to be a voltage regulator with a thermal cut out. When it gets too hot (probably after an hour) it cuts itself off to protect itself until it has cooled enough. Then you need to turn unit off & then on again to reset.

I am modifying a friends unit with bigger heatsink but damaged a coil. If anyone can kindly supply me with coil. Part Number: LF902 please contact me: ian873 (at) gmail.com (in Sydney, Australia)

    As a follow-up. Managed to replace the coil. However in relation to the above problem I can report that I made a large heatsink from sheet steel which I bolted onto the existing (but too small) heatsink to the regulator. This fixed the problem. The extra surface area of the added heatsink resulted in more heat disipated, more rapidly per unit of time. In a nut-shell, no more thermal power-cut off. Problem solved :-)

How can I get my car radio unstuck from one station?


Try disconnecting the negative ground (-) cable from the battery. That will disconnect power to everything including your radio. It might reset it self when you restore power by reconnect the negative ground cable to the battery.

Dennon gets hot shuts off


how are your four outside speakers hooked up? If you have four speakers hooked up to only two output channels on the receiver, the receiver is sensing a short and shutting down to avoid damage to the amp.

My LG surround sound, model lg dvt418 or possibly lgdvt418, will not power on for some reason. It started off where i would have to press the power button quite a few times for it to power on and the last...


100 times? If it wasn't worn out it surely is closer to becoming so.

If you have the remote, try THAT to see if it makes a difference. I have an old receiver with a flaky power switch an I just use the remote to power it on or off when it gets persnickety.

If it responds momentarily to power activation and turns off maybe it senses a dangerous condition and wants to shut down. Try disconnecting the speakers first and see if that changes anything.

Actually, I have an AX 710. I only use it for listening to FM and vinyl. The past few months, when it is powered up, it warns me "OVERLOAD" shut of and on. After numberous repeated attempts,...


You know most of this....

What about heat and shorted speakers?

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.


Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

Hi, I am having trouble hooking up my new LG home theatre system with my Rogers cable. I connected the home theatre system to the TV with an HDMI cable. The sound works with watching DVDs on TV and...


To listen to Tv program sound through your home theater system you will have to connect a pair of RCA to RCA cables (Red and White pair ) from the audio out socket of the TV ( some times three sockets Yellow/Red/White labeled Monitor out. Ignore the yellow as it is video out ) to the Aux or CBL/Sat input of the LG system. Then to listen to the sound through your LG HT system switch the Input selector of the LG to Aux or CBL/SAT. Will work for sure.

I have a nakamici receiver and cd player from 2000 but I don't have speakers. what kind of speakers would you suggest I can buy?


nakamici prides its self on its sound quality therefore i would suggest a compact speacker system from a high end company such as bose or cerwin-vega. this would also depend on your style of music. each brand has a distinct sound and quality goto good-guys best buy or sears and listen to there speakers untill you find a set you like just make sure they have a 25 watt minimun power rating.

Onkyo tx-sr602 as soon as i turn receiver on it flashes protect


Does it display any message like "Protect" or something similar? Do you hear a relay click on then off?

Did the amp just not power up one day or did it stop working while you were listening to it? Finally, do you have teenage kids who might have been listening to your receiver and would have "neglected" to tell you that after listening to their music it suddenly stopped working?

It could be an internal fuse but chances are its something that requires a technician to repair (like the output transistors).

Equalizer troubles


Most likely you have the remote or power wire of the equilizer connected to the "power antenna" output of the deck, which is only powerted when you are listening to the radio. If this is the case, try switching it to the "remote" output, or any normal 12v line that switches off with the deck or ignition. If this doesn't help let me know where you have the equalizer getting its power from and I'll be able to offer more help.

Onkyo TX-DS474 Receiver shuts down after Standby mode.


It's going into a protect mode. The amp is probably shorted out. Disconnect the spkrs and turn it on. If it still shuts off, it's the amp, if not, it's the spkrs.
