System shuts down whenever there is a loud noise on a DVD

Everytime we watch DVDs with out system we have the problem of the sound cutting out whenever a loud noise occurs in the movie. Explosions, car crashes, dramatic all causes the system to shut down and we get a blue screen that says No Signal. Then we have to start the DVD over and find our way to whatever scene we were at. Needless to say, action movies can be frustrating to watch. We called JVC and they were not at all helpful. We have a standard Adelphia cable box, TiVo and a Samsung HDTV....we'd appreciate any help we can get.

If the system is shutting down there is a major drain going on with the speakers. The treble can cause this as well as shorted speakers or even a failing output.

I also was having the same problem... I had the mistake of having the treble all the way up along with all the other speakers except the subwoofer. I just put all the speakers back to 0 and the problem has been solved for months now

I had the same problem. Found out the wires were in contact with one another on one of the speakers.

I have a Panasonic SA-PT960 surround sound/dvd player. Whenever I turn it on I get a chgr err flashing on the screen and a loud grinding noise

There is a fault with the DVD Changer and the noise is the gears grinding. This is a common fault with these units as a small arm within the unit breaks and blocks the mechanism.

You can either try and replace the complete DVD Changer or remove it and just us it as a surround sound system with your auxiliaries connected to it.

When i watch dvds,the background noise is loud

Go to your set up menu, navigate to speaker set up and check your sound levels to front, center, and rear channels. Adjust as needed to fit the room. My Sony has a test tone option which sends a signal (at levels selected) to each speaker to check sound level and if speaker is connected and in right place.

Intermittent Sound

I was having this same problem. I realized that the fan inside was not running so I placed a small fan over the vent in the back of the sub unit. I tried this out and it worked. I then replaced the internal fan with one i bought at radio shack for a computer and have had no problems since. Hope this helps.
