Check the source cable is ok, replace with another if possible.
Also make sure the source is not putting out a standard the HTS does not understand (ie DTS or PCM).

When i power it on,it flickers then shuts off...also the standby on light is always red


Serious power issue.


Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

Any time we turn up the volume...it sounds like the system is going to fly away. What is wrong?


when u say fly away do u mean vibrates A LOT? A lot of different programmes require different sound settings. have u tried to adjust the bass levels to see if that helps?

Magnavox MRD-510- when I plug it in, it just makes a clicking noise and the power button keeps flashing. When I unplug this unit it continues to click for 5 seconds. Only owned for about 5 months and now...


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.

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.

Download MRD-210 User Manual as it might help you to hook up video cables properly. Connections between Tv and Homer theater is not proper in your case.
