    i got it from a friend and he has lost the recipt silly does stay on and works fine just no sound do u think its repairable

  • steve Oct 27, 2008

    there is no problem with the power to the unit it works fine.just no sound from the speaker out puts or pre outs.

    ok thanks for the clarification ;)

    if the stereo is turning off after a few seconds when you stop hearing sound, then I would say the unit is overheating and shutting itself down to prevent damage.

    If it is still under warranty I would take it back to halfrauds...i mean halfords and get a replacement

    however...if its not turning off and it is simply the sound which stops then maybe its a fault in the amplifier output of the stereo and again...take it back and get a replacement.

    hope this helps...but if you have another Q then feel free to ask

    is it an after-market stereo or the manufacturers own model?.

    has it just happened on a stereo you have installed yourself?

    What make/model of car and what make/model of stereo?

    All the above is needed to solve this rather bland question which could have a hundred solutions?

It sounds like some sort of overload causing the stereo to switch off to stop damage. Have you checked that you have the correct amp fuse installed in your fusebox?. Is there an in-line fuse on the live feed wire of the stereo? I suspect either too much power is going to it or that the unit itself has developed a fault.

    ok, I'm running out of ideas here, but unless it's maybe stuck on mute or the volume control isn't working then I'd say there is a problem internally with either the amp circuit or the output circuit in general....although with the price of CD players nowadays it would be cheaper to buy another rather than get this repaired.

    sorry I can't be anymore help to you :(
