I'd suspect your power supply capacitors are on their last leg. replace them.  - This was posted by videoguy1742. :   this problem is CURED simply by replacing 2 capacitors inside on the main board. They are easily identified by a bulge on the top end of the capacitors. The capacitors are located between the heat sinks. The size is 6800uf/16v.
I am a RadioShack dealer and sold a few of these in 2000/2001. I bought one for myself. I have repaired only 2 that had the same problem as listed by HAGUC above. They both are working great and for the record. . .are NOT peices of JUNK,. . .hehe. . .they just need a little TLC. Parts available from larger electronics parts houses, not at RadioShack

HELLO: KENWOOD MARINE STEREO WHEN TURNING UP THE VOLUME ABOUT HALF WAY THE RADIO CUTTS OUT TILL YOU TURN IT BACK DOWN THEN IT COMES BACK ON.


You have a grounded out speaker wire or blown speaker. Disconnect speaker wires at the unit. Make sure the wires are not touching, turn the unit on, then turn the volume back up. If it stays on, it is a wire or speaker. Re-connect one speaker at a time and test. once you find the bad wire/speaker, disconnect the wire at the speaker and test again. This will determine if it's the speaker or wire.

If after disconnecting the speaker wires it still cuts out, check your ground and meter the DC voltage at the power wire. If you do not have enough current at the radio, it will shut off as well. Usually this will happen at about 9.8v dc.

If you still need further help, post a reply/comment and I can help you dig further.

I have Cerwin-Vega speakers that are 4 ohms, what do I set the impedance at?


You can set the speaker impedance in the Advanced menu. See page 45 of english manual (it can be on different page in other language manual).
In standby mode, on the receiver (not on remote!) press STANDBY/ON while pressing and holding STRAIGHT button. THe "ADVANCED SETUP" should show in the LCD display. Now use PROGRAM +/- buttons to navigate the menu. Select "SP IMP." which is speaker impedance setting. Press STRAIGHT to select the correct value. Options are 6ohm and 8ohm. 6ohm setting means 6 and less, so select this option. Now you can turn the unit off by using STANDBY/ON. Now when you turn it on again, it will use these new settings.

I have a jvc home stereo model number CA-HXC6 i have had it for a few years its on protect mode and i cant get it off dont know how it cuts off


Turn off power, unplugg unit, very carefully check speaker wire connections making sure no wires are touching each other or the back of the unit same at speakers connections. Also check speakers. Blown drivers can short terminals internally. This is the most likely problem. Remove the short, unit will come back on

I have a new RX V661 7.1, shuts down when I turn it up.


How much loudness are you trying for. Also, the program material and bass/treble settings factor in when asking a system for increased power...accordianman

This is not a reset. Most likely one or more transistors have shorted and need to be replaced. Does the front display come on OK?

Interior speakers cut out when the volume is turned up


You may have speakers of an incorrect impedance attached to the unit since the problem occurs when audio signal level is increased and the current goes up.The unit is shutting down to prevent damage. I would check the speaker connections and make sure that the speakers impedance are matched for the unit you are using.
