Sounds like you have an heat sensitive semi-conductor that might be connected to a relay (the clicking thing). As it warms up it acts up!
You can pin it down by spraying suspected parts (while under power and when it acts up) with Servisol Freezer Spray. Only spray one part at a time. The faulty part will return to normal, till it warms up again, or you force it to by touching it with a soldering iron.
If nothing happens to the part you spray, it's working and test the next. Don't bother to spray non semiconductor parts.

I have an Alpine MRV-70 amplifier that cuts off completely every now and again. Power is cut off altogether and no sound plays. Main Power line, fuse and fuse holders have been checked. Amp plays perfect...


You are overloadign the amp with your speakers. They may be the incorrect ohms or simply too large for the amp causing it to go into protection mode intermittently.

I have a pair of Samson Live powered speakers. After about an hour of playing one woofer cuts out, then comes in for a little while, then cuts out again.


Hi, when a speaker shuts off like that it's usually indicates a Bad Transistor in the speaker.
The control circuit might be sensing a fluctuation in the power supply and it goes into a protection mode that's why it cuts off.

So you we need to replace the Transistor that is Bad. I guess that will solve the problem.

have a nice day...

Whenever i turn my pc on it says entering power save mode


Check the cables running from your computer to your monitor. This sounds like a problem with a cable connection. If you see your bios screen and then it says "Out of range" or something else, then you will need to go into safe mode and reconfigure your display resolution.

I have a pioneer 5.1 channel surround sound system and it powers up and everything seems to go fine but you go to turn it up and no sound comes out of the speakers already checked speaker wire connections...


Does the protection relay click 3 to 5 seconds after initial power on??? If not, your unit is staying in "protect" mode to save your speakers because the output transistors or output IC is shorted and sending 40 to 60 volts at your speakers. Not a good thing, but at least it saves your speakers.
Good Luck!

When i put my headset to charge it stops charging after 5 seconds


if you are using the USB port on the computer to charge it, it may be an issue of your computer going into "Power Save" mode and shutting down the USB power. I found this by google searching "usb power save mode"... Possible Fix: 1. Click on "Start" and then right-click on "My Computer." 2. Click on "Properties" and then on the "Hardware" tab. 3. Half-way down on the right, click on "Device Manager." 4. Click the "plus" sign in front of "Universal Serial Bus Controllers." 5. Double-Click on the first "USB Root Hub" (not USB 2.0 Root Hub). 6. Click on the "Power Management" tab. 7. Uncheck the box that says "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power." 8. Click "OK" and repeat for all other "USB Root Hubs." 9. Finally, close all and go back to the desktop.
