Unit is behaving oddly

A few days ago, the unit was making a humming, distored noise though the speakers. I tried turning it off and on again, but to no use. Then suddenly, the red power light began flickering and the unit itself began making a flickering sound. I just unplugged it, and it continued flickering for about ten seconds. Then today i plugged the unit it again, and it is still flickering. The buttons do not function, and the remote does not help either.

My avs 2000 makes a load hum

One of the 'cons' of the AVS 2000 is that it makes an audible 'hum' when switched on that can be heard during quieter moments. This shouldn't be overly loud though - If it is, I'd take the unit back for replacement / repair.

Benwin 5.1 surround sound system Humming loudly without anything pluged into it!!!

It is sad your having a problem with your
Benwin 5.1 surround sound system
If humming can be heard on all speakers, then it could probably

be on the power supply.

If it is only on the main SUB unit, then it could be the amp itself.

But check for power supply capacitors that supplies voltages to the

amps.Check for amp output DC voltages too.

My SONY HT-CT 100 Keeps going into "Protector" mode - even though there's plenty of airspace and the room that it's in is at 65 degrees farenheit

Protector mode does not just react to ambient temp. Try unplugging all the speakers from the back of the unit and turning it on. If it continues to go into protect mode, it is most likely a bad power supply or possibly a bad D/A circuit. If it does not go into protection mode when the speakers are disconnected, try hooking up one speaker at a time (while the unit is off) If the unit faults again when you turn it back on, it should point toward a bad speaker or crossed wires.

A few weeks ago i would not get any sound then after the unit would warm up i would get a static sound for a while then it would clear up and be fine. Now no sound when i turn it on but after it warms up i...

Check all you wire connections to speakers and in the back of the receiver.If one is lose especially behind the amp it will create static noise..Did you move it around recently?It might have pulled a wire.Another thing that could cause that is build up of dust on the circuit board..Blow the inside out with a can of compressed air threw the holes in the side..Also check to make sure that in the wall outlet that you have it plugged into that its the only one there because that will also pick up static noise from the other accessories that you have plugged into it.Hope this helps you and have a great day...

Rear wireless speaker ticking noise

I noticed the ticking noise stops if the rear wireless unit is powered on after the main receiver. If the main receiver is on first, then the rear powered up, there is no ticking. This is pretty retarded though since I want to leave my rear receiver on all the time and power down the main unit when not in use.

Take every single cable out of the unit, now power on the unit.

If the power protection still shows then there is an internal fault, usually a short or a component defect.

If it powers on ok, switch off and insert 1 speaker at a time and power on the unit until the protection mode comes on again, the last speaker you have put in has overloaded it for some reason, also as you are trying each speaker use the volume and bass controls to see if there is an internal overload.

Thats as much as I can offer you until you narrow the fault down to the unit or one of the speakers.

Rt2250 rt2500 speaker static noise hum buzz until fully warmed up

It sounds like a capacitor in the power supply is just about to die. With the power disconnected have a look at the large tin can looking gizmos near the power transformer. There could be a couple of them. Leave the unit switched off for a while before going near them they could still pack a splat. Replace them with the same value and make sure they're connected the right way and it should solve your problem. Whilst in there have a good look for any other smaller capacitors which look as if they're getting rounded at the top. Replace them too. Either that or dig deep and buy a new one.
