Strange niose when i try to turn it on

When i try to turn on my stereo the diplay turns on and off but while this is hapeneing a click/beeping niose is hapening at the same that it is turning on and off. at first i thought it might have something to do with the lighting in the room interfering with the remote sensor. but it doesnt just happen sometimes it happens all the time, even at night. thanks for reading. hope you can help.

Re: strange niose when i try to turn it on

There is a short in the amp. circuit, and it is shutting on and off the power supply circuit in the unit. Most likely you have bad output devices in this unit. Most of the time, im sorry to say, it is not worth the cost to repair the output devices, as A new unit would be about the same if not more. The only real way to tell, would be to invest in an estimate. Good Luck

My stereo won't work. Whenever I try to turn it on, it always turns off saying "protect." How can I fix this?

The protect has come on because it senses an output load problem, Turn the unit off, unhook the speakers and wires from the stereo, now turn the unit on and turn the volume down as far as it will go, this should reset the processor ic, if the word protect stays off you have a short in the wiring or bad speaker. If the protect comes back on with everything unhooked the problem is in the audio output ic pack in the stereo and will require a technician to remedy.

Turns itself on

Hey there, you actually need to press the Stop /-DEMO Button when the device is doing the demo will take about 8 seconds and it will display "DEMO OFF" and turn off. This procedure needs to be run everytime there is a power failure OR you unplug it from the wall.
Pressing the Stop /-DEMO while it is on will cause it to start the demo while it is running!

Strange buzzing noise

Sounds like a bad filter cap in the power supply.when you change dimmer switch the buzz changes slightly because of a different power sraw on the power supply. If you are not versed in electronic repair. Get an Estimate. Or if unit is old get yourself a new one. Good Luck
