SA-AX560 Gets Hot, when at idle.

short answer is: (first) 100% normal. the first page in free manual told you it uses 120watts doing nothing. unless standby mode is used at 2watts. turning down the volume is not standby mode. removing all inputs to the whole rig trips to standby. no radio or other inputs active no input jacks on rear active. 120watts is the CLASS A amp using power just like they all do. ever touch a 100watt light bulb and burn your finger, sure, and is hot. so is the amp. LONG ANSWER: you mean TECHNICs not sony, right.? the AC line wattage used is 300watts max. (full volume and max source) sound power only is 85 x2 watts, or 170 (left + right channels)RMS true power watts. OUT to real speakers. the no signal mode test draws 240v at .5amps or 120watts doing nothing at all seen on page #1 in the service manual states that. so is a class A amp or class AB amp, but both burn power doing nothing class "A" is has the best spec for super super low crossover distortion. the CLASS A amp can produces a pure SIGN wave output with pure sign wave input, from say a tone generator. unlike most other cheap amps. but the CLASS A uses tons of power to do that magic. CLASS D is the 2024 solution. and not cheap and has powerful filters inside that erase out the huge nasty PCM chopper noise. that means old CLASS D amps can be very noisy. Im now reading the manual to you,... free off the web. THE AMP DOES HAVE a 2 WATT STANDBY POWER MODE. my guess not tested that. you. this is not a 2024 amp at all it is old. your amp is 24 years old today. NO class D amps in 2000 year. well you do not know about CLASS A , biased AMPS do you.? that burn full power VOLUME set to zero. (or 1/2 power) the other electronics there radio and pre amps use tiny power. as all do, made. Solid state . ive no idea what you looked at or touched. blind. and the amp is complex. Q752 will get hot as all 300watts of power passes though , this is the raw DC power reg. POWER PCB located. what matters is the PA , the power amp inside, now does it work. I guess you do not know what a heat sink is or does. and when seen HS, any tech knows this chip uses lots and lots of power watts, P watts = Volts times amperes. math power it burns and wastes. and at full sound out power 1/2 the power total is wasted i heat and needs a fan to get rid of it in fact. this amp has huge AC power transformer and a rectifier and 7 power DC regulators that all 7 burn power, too. this is no SMPS here.! they are power burning analog regs. the power transistor are bipolar, not MOS FETs Q601 TO Q604 Class A is BIASing modes of the 4 huge transistors that drive the speakers.. the IC chip that drives that is crazy rare now, to find now and no documents found and web sites with them full of VIRUSes i see the prepower IC chips have a too hot pin that runs the fan control card, so with the prePA chips get too hot the fans speeds up. the Power amp transistors and those huge IC Called Sanyo RSU310R36p get hot. as do all or most the DC voltage regulators, 7 or more there. that technolgy is and was the best then and now. I have few here, and can break glass windows here, 200watt RMS BASS. yours may be CLASS B. 1/2 on ,each side, active. so burns 120 watts and 300 watts out on demand. it never turns off the Power AMP. the class B has lots of distortion. in your case 0.8% that is 1 watt of noise power 100watt.s (approx) Class A is best then. CLASS D today uses PWM modulation.\\ and is costly. https://www.crutchfield.com/S-7nI7322XWHL/learn/which-amplifier-class-is-best.html

My Sony model # MHC-V11 MAKES NO SOUND everything seems to operate but i cant get no sound from it

Troubleshoot this issue. Here are some steps you can follow: Check Speaker Connections: Ensure that the rear surround speakers are properly connected to the Audio/Video (A/V) receiver. If applicable to your model, verify that the A/B speaker selector is set correctly. If the speakers are connected to the A speaker connection, the selector must be set to the A position. Test Tone Operation: Perform a test tone operation to check if the speakers are functioning correctly. Increase the rear speaker volume or adjust the surround speaker settings to the maximum level. Speaker Size Settings: Try selecting a different size (small or large) for the rear surround speakers in the menu. Surround Sound Mode: Verify that the A/V receiver is set to a surround sound mode. For Dolby ProLogic surround sound, ensure that the center-channel mode is set to NORMAL or WIDE. If your source is a DVD or Blu-ray Disc player, check that surround sound is enabled in the player's menu. The audio being received must be multi-channel. Different Surround Sound Mode: Try setting the A/V receiver to a different surround sound mode. Source Content: Verify that the source you are playing is encoded in surround sound. Note that during periods of mainly dialog, most of the sound may come from the center speaker only, with audio coming out of the rear speakers when there is background or ambient noise. Factory Reset: Reset the unit back to factory default settings (consult your operating instructions for model-specific steps). If applicable, follow the steps for calibrating the appropriate settings automatically after connecting the calibration microphone device. Speaker Wires and Replacement: Check and replace the speaker wires if necessary. Consider connecting a different pair of speakers to see if the issue persists. If you've tried these steps and the problem remains unresolved, I recommend seeking professional service.

My Sony DHC-FLX7D and DHC-FLX5D is not working due to humidity. Is it possible to repair it ?

steps to troubleshoot and potentially repair them: Troubleshooting Low Sound or No Audio from Rear Surround Sound Speakers: If you're facing audio problems, especially with the rear surround sound speakers, consider checking the following: Ensure that all speaker connections are secure and properly plugged in. Verify that the speaker wires are not damaged or frayed. Check the speaker settings in the system menu to ensure correct configuration. Inspect the speaker impedance and compatibility with the system. If you're using wireless speakers, check their power supply and connectivity. Refer to the operating instructions manual for specific troubleshooting steps. Flexible Circuit Board Repairing: If the issue is related to internal components, you might need professional repair. However, if you're comfortable with electronics, consider these precautions: Keep the soldering iron temperature around 270°C during repairs. Avoid touching the soldering iron on the same conductor of the circuit board more than three times. Be gentle when soldering or unsoldering to prevent damage to the conductor. Important Notice: To prevent fire or shock hazard, avoid exposing the unit to rain or moisture. Do not open the cabinet; refer servicing to qualified personnel. Avoid installing the appliance in confined spaces like bookcases or built-in cabinets.

My sony icf-cl75ip wont turn on and is making a clicking sound. How can I fix this?

There is not reason this would click and not turn on. If it just clicked, it would likely be caused by interference from another appliance, typically a fridge or freezer. The most likely reason is a relay in the internal power supply. It will need a Sony Service Centre. https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/res/manuals/4154/41545841M.pdf It isn't a recorded known issue. Sony are high quality equipment so it is worth getting it fixed. https://www.google.com/search?q=sony+icf-cl75ip+clicks+and+not+working ..
