Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Samsung HT-Q40N that when plugged up there is no indication of power to the unit. I have spoken with Samsung support, but it was the wrong thing to do. They wanted me to take it to a repair shop. I am on a fixed budget and would like to try to fix it myself. If there is a solution to this issue that can be easily fixed please let me know. If not I am going to manually remove the dvds that are stuck in the unit and chunk the whole unit.

Could be a blown fuse at the input of the power cord. The stuck dvds could have blown the main fuse.

My Samsung HT-DM550 shows "lock"


Be careful to do this with AC cable disconnected from AC outlet! If you have some experience with electronics, disconnect the wired plugs from power supply and discharge electrolitic capacitors to ground with a 330 ohm 1 watt resistor. Then reconnect the wired plugs. Be careful to do this with AC cable disconnected from AC outlet! Then connect to AC outlet and turn on the DVD player. You will see that DVD player restores to normal operation again.

Unit does not want to switch on no power ...What could be wrong???


Make sure it's plugged in. Sounds a little silly but you would be surprised...
Make sure the wall socket works. Plug a lamp or something that you know works.
Might be a fuse. Look in the back of the unit to see if it's accessible, otherwise you have to open the unit.

SAMSUNG HT-Q9 displays PROTECT and then switches off?


hello,
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Usually a protect fault will indicate a bad transistor in the amplification section. I suspect that the control circuit is sensing a fluctuation in the power supply and going in to protect mode. (assuming that the protect circuit itself is working properly) If a voltage is too high the unit will go in to protect mode to prevent damage to the speakers and the rest of the unit. Expect a 60 to 80 dollar repair charge depending on how many parts need to be replaced and what the repair labor rate is in your area.Hope this will help........

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.

When i turn on my samsung HT-Z110, the word "Protect" appears...


Protect mode will kick in whenever a fault is detected.

You get the unit not powering up, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that is the protection switch that keeps shutting down the unit.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

Internal fault.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

Regards.

Samsung home theater


After having my unit for a year, it now reads this PROTECTION message. I tried to restore factory settings also before calling Samsung & they said something wrong with the cooling fan. Haven't tore into it yet, but does the units come with a fuse that might be blown. I'm tring to find free schematics on the net but hard to track down. If you just got yours, take it back to the store & get a new one!
