Re: Sound Cutting Out

I had the same problem (sound was cutting out and a higher volume on the CD and radio). I took the advice given (check the wiring) and sure enough the wires from one speaker into the amplifier had been incorrectly attached. I have changed them now and so far so good.

Re: Sound Cutting Out

We also had this same problem, make sure all speaker wires are correctly connected and have no breaks as any wire problems will cause amplifier to cut out. The system works fine now and also plays from the pc without any cut off. Hope this helps.

Sony CMT-GP5 subwoofer output very quiet

From the description the subwoofer is the problem, since the item is new return it to the place of purchase, this is a manufacture issue.

If the speakers vibrate especially when the mega bass is on, does that mean that the speakers are blown on my icf-cdk50?

Real low bass is mostly vibration. Anything that has a "mega bass" 'enancement' is cutting corners to make up for bass-reproduction shortcomings. Speakers measuring 2-5/8' have no business reproducing real bass. Blown speakers would be silent. Torn cones from excessive volume might sound like unwanted vibration. Your vibration might be a resonance of the unit's own housing, mounting hardware or something nearby. Try moving it to another location.

These units are not economically repairable. If you like it and you think it's broken you might snag a whole new on on eBay with wise bidding.

After a few minutes of playing a cd or the radio, the speakers make a thumping/crackle noise and the music stops. The stereo stays on. Just stops playing music. Any ideas?


OK, this is just a suggestion, without analysing the unit myself.

From my experience with these type of units, it is usually overheating of the IC's on the circuit board.
You can do another test just to double check. Turn the unit off, unplug it from the wall supply for about 10 minutes. Then plug the unit back in and turn it on. Now turn the volume very high, without the speakers starting to distorted, where you can still hear a clear sound.

Now, if this is an IC overheating, the sound should start distorting and cutting out. This is actually a very common occurrence with these types of players as well as receivers in general.

Try the above, let me know what happens.

Also, please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards

I replaced my mini component stereo (360 watt) speakers with new speakers that apparently can handle up to 600 watts. If the volume is too high on the receiver, the power cuts out. I think this is because...

probably you are right due to high impedance of the speaker the receiver cant handle it, the mini component can handle 80 to 100 watts only. you need a high watts amplifier to used your 360 watts speaker, just connect it to the audio output of the mini component. thanks

Insignia NS-A2111 audio issue

I had the same problem, its an easy fix if you can solder, and costs less than five dollars in parts, The two filter caps in the audio power supply are not soldered very well so vibrations cause them to break loose from the board.

Volume Knob busted

The problom with this is the volume on/off control is of low quality and does go bad. The part was discontinued in 2009 and is no longer avalible

syntoms include: no power on or off , no sound or volume control of any kind

solution: there is only one solution and it is to replace the switch, however because of the small size of the original switch it is very hard to find a suitable replacement.

Buzzing sound and can't open stereo

Again RCA stereos **** for this factor, cheap transformers, replace the transformer and see if that helps as it seems to be the most problem with most RCA systems I've repaired in the past.

Power cuts out

This problem happend to my sony system about a year ago. It was the amp that blew in mine because of the fan inside the system was not coming on when it should of. I found that when i had put my PC in the AUX jacks it blew the fan on me, so every time the volume got to 15 the system would just shut down and not come back on at all, or it would need time to cool down before it would start up again. Take it to a shop and get it looked at by someone that knows what there doing. Please dont try and do this yourself.
