Question about Crossfire VR404 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Internal malfunction? OK so this amp used to work perfectly, but now when i turn it on everything seems fine, only once i turn my CD player up past 20 (which really isn't loud or anything) it goes into protect mode. no speakers are blown or anything so i would rule that out. any ideas?

Need new ground wire, possibly bigger gauge wire, may need to take cd player out and re-hook the wires up into the cd player then into the amp to make sure no wires are touching

CD player works but start delays from 5 minutes to 20 minutes. What could cause that?

Dust inside the cd player could be causing problems.
You need to try playing a cleaning cd and follow the instructions that come with it. You can also spray compressed air to clean out the cd portion of the stereo. You can also try unplugging the unit for 20 minutes and then plug it back in. Make sure your cds are clean and not too scratched up. If the unit is under a year old it may still be under warranty. If this does not resolve the issue you may have to have the unit professionally repaired. If the unit is not worth repairing you may need to buy another unit.

You must run a repair using the Philips Device Manager that came with the CD. After you have done that, you must run the "update" with the Philips Device Manager.
Repair=1 time fix
Update=permanent fix

At high volume sound shuts off, subs still work

You most likely have a shorted or damaged speaker, which is causing the internal amp chip to shut down (but does not affect the preamp outputs). A test you can do is to fade to one speaker at a time and turn it up to se if it shuts down. Repeat with each speaker until you find the one that causes the fault. Then replace it.
