Sound cuts off at higher volume

About 4 years ago it started cutting off sound at the higher volume levels (above 15). We have been able to live with it until recently, but now it cuts off sound around level 12. This problem applies to all modes of operation (CD, tuner and cassette), and it gets worse with the "Bass On" button selected. I would immagine it is some sort of unit protection feature not working properly.

SOURCE: system keeps sayin protect

The word PROTECT appears because there is a short. It can be in your speakers, try running it without the speakers plugged, or look if the wires arent shorting. If it stil ldoes that, its cause there is a short in it, from the output section. The system does that to prevent from damaging the electronic components inside.

SOURCE: Protect

I know I'm finding lots of old posts about this JVC model MX-KB30 "PROTECT" problem but - I FIXED IT!!!! 8-) Daugter had the same difficulty after a series of power outages. Figured it had something to do with the speaker circuit board. Decided to look for a reset on the board itself. Not sure that I found one, basically becuase there was not a perception of a button pressing down, but the "PROTECT" cleared and the sound is coming through the speakers again. The sterio works fine. First - as when working on all electronics - unplug the unit and make sure all static electricity has been discharged before working on it. You will need a small jewlers philips screw driver as well as a mirror for looking down on top of the electrical components. Remove the cover of the sterio surrounding the sides and top of the unit - there are screws on the sides, top and around the edges of the back fo the unit related to this piece. You do not have to remove any other pieces. There will be a circuit board attached to the back center of the unit that has a black cable running to the headphone plug and the speaker connections are also running through this board. If you face the front of the unit, looking at the sound circuit board from the right side, there will be a small black - square looking - voltage regulator (I think that's what it is anyway) that you will see some voltage information and some switch setting pictographs (along with the numbers 1, 2, 3). On top of this black unit (here is where you need the mirror) there is a square hole that looks down inside this unit as well as a round hole that you will see white plastic inside. Using the jewlers screwdriver, carefully press on the white plastic once or twice (I couldn't tell that it had pushed down) particularly becuase I have no clue how sturdy this piece is. With the cover still off the unit, plug it in and make sure the "PROTECT" message has disappeared and the speakers are working again. That's exactly what I did and the darn thing started working again. Maybe I just got lucky, but this is a nice sounding unit and it would be a shame to see folks toss it away for such a simple fix if that is indeed what did it. Enjoy!

SOURCE: stereo goes into protect mode

Protect is a safety feature so that you do not blow your speakers. However with it hooked up with the computer you may have surpassed the max output. If it still does this with out going through the computer, it has been damaged.

Pure dab radio keeps cutting out

My Pure Evoke 1S ran fine for years. Then two years ago it started cutting out every now and again, and, at other times, just failing to switch on, by constantly recycling between off and on. The higher the volume setting, the quicker it cut out.
I persevered with the radio because a) it was expensive at £90, b) the sound is very good quality, and c) I could not see a reason for the fault other than a component failure (and there was no obvious sign for that).
I then discovered the fix and it is quite simple. With the radio on, select the menu option "Energy Saving Settings" and set the option to "NO". The radio will works as normal, immediately.
Hope this works for you, too.

I have a Panasonic HT-692 surround sound system. Any time I use the surround sound features and turn the volume to a higher level(not ear piercing mind you) the system cuts off as if a ckt breaker has

If you are playing the unit that loud, for an extended time it sounds like the unit is going into overload, meaning it's getting to hot. Try turning the volume down to 1/2 of your current level. If it stays running, you will have to cut back on your volume, before you seriously damage the unit(or your hearing)

Orange TT. cuts out on high gain on both channels, what can be the problem?

You MAY be exceeding the capability of the unit causing the thermal protect of the PA chip to shutdown. A 15 Watt amp is NOT going to make a lot of noise unless you have super-efficient speakers that are say 15 inch ones in decent cabinets. You still will be limited in sound level. Just because the gain control goes to a paticular number doesn't mean the amp can take it !!! Mpost of these use 7 terminal amp chips about the size of a TO220 transistor. Heat sinks are OFTEN very inadequate.

Sound cuts out

No, this sounds like a speaker problem to me.
It sounds like the voice coils in your speaker(s) have been fried.
What happens is the part that is burnt does not funtion, but as you increase the volume/voltage the speaker "jumps" foward to a section of voice coil that is not as damaged.
Check your speakers!

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.

Playing songs at certain volume

Several things can effect the quality of your files. 1. Check your headphones by comparing them with others. 2. The file quality may be too low, you can test that by getting a higher quality MP3 file and comparing the two. 3. If you are creating the MP3 files yourself, be sure to watch the sound recording level. Allowing it to stay in the red can produce distortion while recording ay too low of a level can result in low voulume as well as possible distortions. If none of these correct the issue, you may need to replace the player.
