How to test your speaker

I have a maddenning problem with my 5.1 home theater system. The deneon 1601 yes its a little old, am goes into auto protect mode occasionally and now its gone into auto protect at all times . It was connected to KEF Cresta 1s, cresta2, kef centre and PSW100 . When i took the amp into deneon in the uk, they found no fault and said it could be a speaker problem. I took the speakers to the KEF dealer and they coudlnt kind anything wrong with the speakers. I am now aiming to change the amp to a denon 3805 but dont want to risk blowing it if the spakers are to blame. |Is there any way to test the spaekers at home before i go and buy a new amp? i an not very techie

Units going into auto protect are usally due to open or dead short conditions to keep the system protected from blowing the final amps. based on what you suggested I woould test or change out the cables 1st.

If the wire is bear ( no port connections ) then you should be able to try the speakers on most stereo systems. If you have not got the right connections on the back of you stereo then ask a friend if you could try it on there?s. But if the wires have got port connections the only way you can test them is if you can unplug your amp and still have the other speakers on. If your going to get a new amp then why not get some new speakers to go with it.

Samsung Home theater goes into Protection mode


no and yes . there is a short in the circuit board where the fan is. i had the same problem and i fixed it by takeing a power adapter out of a old alarm clock.(part where it plugs in then a little box with two wires.)i cut the outlet plug(big thick wires) off about 6 in down from the little box.then striped the wires and hooked them to the outlet plug on the surround system.(just twisted them where it connects to the large power adapter)(i used some electrical nuts to fasten them down)then i screwed it somewhere on the side and then striped the skinny wires and cut the fan wires at the base and attached them to the skinny wires.(twist them together a and put electrical tape around it)problem with this is that the fan won't go off unless you put a switch on it.if you got any questions feel free to email me at gamecrazy944@yahoo.com

The system goes into Sleep mode every 5 minutes and just before going into the sleep mode,''protection Error'' flases on the screen


Unfortunately, the unit is not going into "Sleep mode".
The PROTECTION error actually means that the unit is overheating.
The unit shuts itself off to avoid further damage.
Try to make sure that no other device is below the unit. Also make sure the unit has adequate ventilation on the back of it.
If not, call 1-800-7267864 and let them set up a repair order for the unit.

Sony home theater system started blinking protect


Protect mode will kicking whenever a fault is detected.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

Internal fault.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

Regards.

How to test your speaker


Check sub buy pushing cone in gently if you hear or feel a rasping sound the sub is blown,if not check for a fuse where the power cable goes in as this may need replaced.Also make sure you have the sub plugged into the sub pre out and not the six channel input.
PS did switch on the sub in the speaker set up in the menu?

Protect mode will kick in whenever a fault is detected.

You get the unit not powering up, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that is the protection switch that keeps shutting down the unit.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.
