I had this same problum. i sent it away and they said that the solder had cracks in it making it high resistive join, so when you turn it up and it is trying to push out that extra power it overloads cause it hasent a clear parth for the power to go... if you un screw the back (HEAPS OF SCREWS) and they are cracked enough the speaker termanals will just fall off... all you have to do is just solder them back on..

Your safety overload circuit is kicking in and prenting the amp from shorting. you have a bad speaker most likely or horn. try operation it with headphones next. try bookshelf speakers at a moderate level to test if it persists then the amp has a biggger problem.

How do I get out of Safe Mode?


Hi Claudia. I found this.


I found Please remove leather case on your kindle before performing the steps below.
Please press and hold down the power button for 25-30 seconds until the Kindle restarts or Shutdown. If it prompts for Shutdown then please shut down the device and power it back on.
That should fix the problem.
If the answer to your question was informative and helpful, please show your appreciation for my efforts by clicking the green Accept Answer button right below my first response.
Thank you for choosing Experthelp.



Safe mode turns on when you shut down the kindle while the volume button is being pressed down. Solution-Restart your kindle by holding the power button until the screen shuts off. Make sure that the volume button is not being pressed while you restart your kindle. Then keep pressing the volume button, about 10 times to unstick them then turn on the kindle. Safe mode should turn offand how you go into it.

Before my Onkyo receiver ht-r591 keeps clicking on/off rightnow is dead , won't power on at all ...Please Help!!!


Hi Markes,

It could be that there is a frayed speaker wire touching the back of the receiver and when playing at a low level the speakers do not require that much power, however when the level from the speakers increases more power is required and if there is a frayed speaker wire touching the back of the receiver there could be a short causing the receiver to shut down. A way to avoid the frayed wire is to use "Banana Connectors" that the speaker wires goes to and the connector will plug into the speaker posts. Please try the following to see where the issue is coming from. Have the receiver turned off, make sure all the speaker wires are labeled, and disconnect them from the speaker terminals. Turn the receiver on select a source that would give you sound if the speakers where still connected and turn the volume all the way up. If the receiver shuts down than it would need to go to a service center as it is an internal problem with it. If the receiver does not shut down, turn the volume down, shut the receiver off and connect one speaker and than turn the receiver on selecting the same source as before and raising the volume up. If the receiver shuts down, remove that speaker from the post and connect it to another speaker post to determine if it is the receiver or the speaker itself that is giving you the problem. If the receiver should shut down after moving that speaker you know it is a problem with the speaker or the wiring. If the receiver does not shut down, turn the volume down, shut the receiver off and connect another speaker followed by doing the previous test procedure. Keep adding speakers until you have them all reconnected to the receiver as long as it has not shut off while trying the test procedure. After determining whether it is the speakers or the receiver you would need to bring either to a service center to be repaired.

Keeps turning itself off


If Both speakers are working at a low volume and you turn it up and it clips and shuts off you have one of 3 problems. you have over driven your speakers and one has shorted the voice coil but still will work at low volume, its a overload protection for ohms short in receiver. unhook each speaker and turn balance to the one hooked up and turn up receiver if it shuts off do the same with other speaker to determine which side is bad. 2 speaker wires are touching at speaker or receiver. 3 a bad receiver output transister. Good luck.

My Denon AV-3801 will just turn itself off if volume is turned up. I have checked for crossed wires and such,not sure what is going on. Any answers?


Disconnect all speaker wires at the receiver, then turn it back on. Turn up the volume. If it shuts down, it needs to be serviced. If it stays on, reconnect speakers one at a time and turn on the receiver then turn up volume. When you find the speaker that causes the receiver to shut down, disconnect the wire at the speaker and re- test. make sure wires are separated. If it shuts down, replace the wire, if it stays on, meter the speaker itself to check for a bad vioce coil. If you don't have a meter, you can take the speaker to any audio shop or Radio Shack and they will usually test it for free. Hope this helps.
