Teac AG-V8060 Receiver Questions & Answers
How do you reset the blinking protect banner on
Try disconnecting the power cord then disconnect the speakers. Plug the power cord back in then hold in the power button until the unit "clicks." Then disconnect the power cord and reconnect the speakers, then the power cord and turn it back on.
Why dont i have sound
First , make sure the speaker switch is ON
Second , make sure no TAPE MONITOR function is on.
3rd, Make sure ( if there is a Mute switch) , turn that off.
If still nothing, try headphones and see if something comes through
If fan fails will protect come on
If you are playing at loud volume levels , the power amp will overheat without a fan and you could VERY well get a major failure.
I'm not sure about a thermal protection circuit on Overheat
Display says 'protect' and unit does not work. Is
The most common problem found on FixYa for Audio Video Receiver's is:
receiver say's "Protect" or turns on then off. What's wrong? Seven
times out of ten it is a shorted speaker or speaker wire. To
determine your exact problem, the first step is to disconnect all
speaker wires "at your receiver" Next: Turn the receiver back on. If
your receiver still says "protect" or turns off, it needs to be
serviced. If your receiver stays on; reconnect your speakers one at a time and power back
up after each speaker. You may find that after reconnecting all speaker
wires it works! Most commonly the small braids of wire from the + to the
- have touched and have caused the problem. In some instances, you
noticed the problem only when turning the volume up. either way, make
sure the exposed wires to your receiver are no longer than 1/2" long and
are completely under the screw down terminal or slide in.
When you've found the wire or speaker with the problem, your receiver
will go back into "protect" At this point, disconnect the wire from the
speaker at the speaker that may be causing the problem then test again.*
Note* Make sure speaker wires do Not touch each other as this Will
cause a short! If you turn the receiver back on and it stays on, you now
know the problem is in your speaker itself. To test your speaker, you
will need a multimeter. Set it to ohms resistance and touch the speaker
terminals, if there is a short internally the meter will read "1......"
If it's an analog meter, it will peg to the right. There's your problem.
Now, within any speaker there are quite a few possibilities as to what
could be causing the problem. Most common is a blown coil and the
speaker needs to be replaced. Some speakers have
internal crossovers (usually floor standing speakers) and may have a
shorted or burnt board (usually very visible brown burn marks on the
board) and can possibly be repaired if your handy with a soldering iron.
Now, if you disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and it still
says "protect" Check your wire for the obvious cut or nail thru
the wire if possible. If your system has wiring that runs
behind walls, you may need to use your meter again. Disconnect the wire
at both ends, keep the ends separated, put your meter on ohms resistance
and touch probes to the + and - wires at one side. If the meter pegs to
the right or reads "1...." the wire is shorted and needs to be replaced
or repaired at the short. Hope this helps.
My unit says over load shut off power and turns off 2nd set of speakers???
Here are some things toy can check and try.
Check the speaker cables for shorts or damage. Crossing speaker wires can destroy receivers.
Some units are sensitive to speaker polarity problems. Make sure both sets of speaker cables have the correct polarity.
Very thick, or otherwise incorrect speaker cables can also cause faults like this. Try thinner wire if you are using very thick wires.
You may have the wrong speakers. Check the resistance the unit expects (usually 4 or 8 ohms), and make sure it matches. Try different speakers.
Could be other speaker faults. Some active speakers can develop faults, or there may be an internal fault in the speakers. Try different speakers.
As a general rule, don't run the second set of speakers if you don't need them - usually runningthem will degrade audio quality, increase power consumption, and increase the liklihood of thermal overload.
Try listening on a lower volume, see if it still does it. I have a unit that behaves this way mostly in summer when it is warm. If it does not do it when the volume is low, that's an indicator it may be thermal overload.
Check clearances. Don't block vents or place the unit in an enclosed space. Check the manual for a guide.
Check for dust, you might need to open it, (This will void the warranty if any, and can be dangerous even if the power is disconnected). You may use an air blower (like in a can) to clear the dust - or carefully use a vacuum cleaner).
If you suspect thermal overload, try pointing a domestic fan at the unit and see if it still does it.
Sometimes faults in the unit can cause these sort of symptoms. I've seem problems with volume knobs, and other parts. You'll need a proper service agent to investigate if this is suspected.
Pre out connection/cable,. how to
Just put the amp jack in the RED socket if is marked or Right socket. It will not effect it, having the other one not used. But you can get a stereo to mono jack lead if you want.
