Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect 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.

take one of the working speakers and hook it to the output that is not working, this will determine if its a bad speaker or not. if it works then you know the speaker or wiring is at fault. also take the speaker and the wires from the one that isn't working and hook it to a good output and make sure that speaker and its wiring are good. if the output is bad the problem is within the amplifier system, could be a switch, could be output transistors, but now your going to be into money for an estimate from a repair center, i would suggest a local shop, unless this is a new and under warranty system, in which case you should take or send it to the for warranty repair, good luck.

Follow this:
1. Turn OFF your SWA4000 wireless receiver and unplug the power chord.
2. Take out the TX card from your home theater system (HTS) while its OFF/ no power. Switch the HTS ON and then OFF, just to recognize that the TX card has been removed.
3. Then, while your HTS is OFF, put back the TX card (make sure it fits perfectly).
4. Now, plug the power chord back to your SWA4000 receiver and turn it ON.
5. Turn ON your HTS, and your good to go.

This means that its lost the connection to the wireless transmitter, the error means Rear CHK or check hence RCHK. Seems that if the unit is not quite in line of sight the connection can be flaky. I would check the positioning of the reciever. Try moving it, see if you cant get a better connection.

I would guess the receiver needs to be set up for 5.1. Do you have surround speakers defined and have you adjusted their levels?

swa-4000 wireless module isn't compatible with htz310. You need to buy Samsung's swa-3000 to work with your htz310. I had the same problem. It tells you in your owners manual under conectivity where it explains about hooking up a wireless module(pg.55-60). I hope this helps.

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!
