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

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!,

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.

Chk spkr

That message means that you have a bad speaker or you have a bad amplifier IC most of the time. The amp circuit could have some other problem, but more times than not it is the amp IC.

How to check if it is the speakers or the amp circuit:

Unplug the speakers and turn it on. if you do not get the error message you have a bad speaker. If you do get the error message you have an internal amp problem. Then start plugging in speakers one at a time. If the unit turns on and stays on for a few minutes, turn it off and then plug in one more speaker. Keep doing this unit the unit gets the error message and when it gets that message you know that the last speaker you plugged in is the bad one.

Now the bad news

RCA no longer sells parts for their audio equipment. When the supply they have on hand right now is gone, thats it, no more RCA parts.

Now the good news.

The amp IC they use is a generic type that you may be able to get from another source.

But that is only good news if the amp IC is bad. It is the likely suspect, but without troubleshooting it on a test bench with the proper equipment, that can only be a good guess.

If you have found this help to you a good rating would be really appreciated.
