HI,
Connect your headphones to the unit , to check , if the unit is giving you any sound. If yes , then the unit can be termed as healthy. Next would involve isolating the sepakers one by one. To do that you need to get the sepakers tested.


Thanks

First you need to get a different set of speakers to test the unit, if you shorted the speakers wires, then the wiring is broken or the speakers may be not working.

If you shorted out the speakers you probably burnt something ont amp circuits. You need to test the zone of the board were the amp is following the diagrams in the service manual.

you will need a multimeter and the repair service manual.

If the unit is less than one year old, then you can call the phone number listed on the user manual and have it fixed. If you mention that you caused the problem, this can invalidate the guaranty.

    just a minute.

    you drove a staple inside the speaker??

    it could have caused anything. we cant assure if what could have happened. but since staple is not heavy i dont think it would have tore the thin resin that creates the vibrations. similar to reverse ear drum of our human ear.

    if that resin has tore then you wont be getting any sound.

    my advice would be take it to some tech and have the unit opened and check out your staple. dont try to open it by yourself with out any proper expertise.

    thank you

My Sharp XL-HP500 CD Shelf System turns on, but shuts off immediately.


No! you have short in the system, remove speaker wires from back and plug headphones in, if okay it means there is a short in the speaker wire or speaker, if no change the audio output ic's should be suspect.

Acoustic Research Model AW871 wireless sterio speakers


Your connection between the AR transmitter and the ONKYO receiver sounds solid. I'd guess it's the wireless speakers that are the wrong point, or at least that's what I'd look at first. Doing a bit of research, I noticed a couple minor points. First, these seem prone to RF interference from other RF devices. Have to tried switching channels on them? Second, someone reported theirs would not work properly unless the speakers were turned on just before the transmitter, and turned off shortly after the transmitter. Apparently you have to hold the button on the front in for 5 seconds to turn the speakers on or off. I know that's rather basic, but it's been a few days and no one else has responded, so I figured we should start somewhere.

My Panasonic sa-ak770 will not come out of standby mode


Check to make sure there are no shorts in the speaker wiring, if okay remove speaker wires from back, press power if it comes out of standby the wires or speakers are the problem, if there is no change the protection circuit is not functioning or the audio output ic's have a short.

No sound coming out of speakers


Check the speakers wires on the back to make sure there are no shorts, if okay! the problem lies with the audio output ic in the stereo and will require replacement.

Cd player say's protect and will not play cd


If protect is coming up on the display, it means the system is detecting a short somewhere on one of the speakers and so is turning the amp off to avoid damage.
Check all the connections at the back of the amp to ensure they are not shorting, and at the back of each speaker, if nothing is found there, check each wire for damage (like squashed or rodent damage).

What is "Press Power Protect"?


Hi Lois,
Stereo sytems have a protection circuit that alerts you by displaying "protect" when there is a electrical short circuit detected in the system, the most common short happens in a speaker, try disconnectig the speaker wires of both speakers(all speakers) at the back of the system, then play the CD or cassette player(although you will not hear anything with the speakers disconnected) and see if the unit goes into "protect" mode if the problem is still present then you have an internal short circuit and the system will need to be sent in for service or replaced(depending on age,repair costs). I would not recommend investing more than $80 into repairs. Now, if the unit does not go into "protect mode" then one of the speakers or speaker wires is shorted,be sure you check the conndition of the speaker wires before you replace the speakers, then you can replace the speakers(in a pair) and you should be back up and listening! Good luck and Merry Christmas !

Hum form both speakers, and moving the speaker cable where it goes into the console starts/reduces/stops the hum. Any solutions out there? Is there a ground wire broken in the connector?


Had this problem for years with my much loved SS5. Only just now i decided to pull it out and fiddle with it some more and have the "humming problem" SOLVED. See description and PICTURES below


-remove the 2 small philips head screws from the speaker plug.
-first note which wires go where, i took a picture.
-take a small object to "lever" up the tiny plastic "fingers" that hold the plug wires in the plug housing, i used a small file, but you can try fine nosed tweezers.
-whilst doing this pull back at the wire at the same time to remove the metal terminal from plastic housing.
-repeat for the remaining wires.


i used small electrical snips to "pinch" the tiny metal plugs to make the connection tighter. I pinched it till there was almost no space between the contacts then re-insert wires till it clicks and it is then locked in place.


replace the housing with the 2 screws, and when you go to plug the speaker back in you will feel it is "tighter". No more humming at all!


-repeat for other speaker. The process of "pinching" may take some practice to get it to fit nice and snug around the connecting pins in the SS5 main unit.


Note; pinch from the bottom flat surface of the metal, and you will see the contact coming closer together. if you do it from the top, it will simply spring back open when you release the pressure.


hope this helps, this problem had me scratching my head for a long time, i even tried re-wiring the plug, when it was simply the metal pins in the housing!

Won't start up


"Protect" error could mean one or both of the output IC's are defective. This can be caused if the speakers or the wiring have shorted. Try the unit without the speakers to see if it starts up.
