Your problem is the output IC's The case where you say the speakers buzz tells you theres a short in the audio outputs. If your unit didnt shut off, the speakers would fry and the unit would also smoke. These are solid state devices and are soldered in, and are not concidered user serviceable parts, unless you know how to solder and trouble shoot Stereo systems. This is a job for the pro if you want it fixed. Good Luck

It says chk spkr when i try to turn it on how do i get it to work agaiun?


You probably have a blown channel. but check for a shorted speaker wire or bad speaker. Remove all speaker wires from the rear of the receiver if it still says check speakers when turned on, then one of the output channels is bad.

Buzzing noise from behind the timer


Hi there,

Well first of all we need to know where the noise is coming from. With power off, you should remove the transition panel, the toe panel and let the console come down. Then carefully you should plug the machine back in and be able to determine exactly where the noise comes from. Do this only enough to locate the source of the buzzing, then shut it down. Reply to get a proper answer.

Thanks

The display says "CHK SPKR"


It's telling you it thinks tghere's a short on the speaker outputs. With NO speakers, that is bad.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output 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 hands-on tech.

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!,

My speakers are plugged in but they are not working


r u sure that ur spkr is fine ? To test it, power on it, keep the volume to maximum, touch the input jack, if u hear some buzzing sound, then assume it ok, unless check the spkr. then check audio output ports of your pc by inserting a headphone or another fine spkr, if it doesn't solve, check whether ur sound driver is properly install or

RCA rt2500 "CHK SPKR" comes on when i turn it on.


"CHK SPKR" Check Speakers. Remove all speaker wires and turn on receiver. If it still says check speakers, you have an amp that needs output transistors or possibly just soldering of an emitter resistor but thats rare.
