It's probably self-protecting from heat build-up.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

You will need to look for Bad capacitors and replaced , 470uf 35v as suggested. read about polarity issue when installing the new caps. Radio Shack. Installed it.

Thanks for posting Question, You will need to check the power switch, There are capacitors for .12v/1000uf 25v/1000uf...You will need to check it out if it's working.If not replace or re-solder..

Also you will need to check the sound IC, by tamping on the IC chip, if it makes a sound,OK, but if not, needs to be replaced..

You will need to check the Terminal resistors which is about 0.9 ohms, 1ohms , if not working will be replaced too..

You will need to look for Bad capacitors and replaced , 470uf 35v as suggested. read about polarity issue when installing the new caps.

My rca opal m4204 wont turn on

We bought a while back a surround sound system with a SONY Dolby Digital FM Stero FM/AM Receiver STR SE501, a small subwoofer and small centerband spearker. We recently upgraded to two better and larger submwoofer and centerband speark: ICON VC25 CENTER SPEAKER (SN 100987108520533 SW-350 SUBWOOFER (SN 101043809321322 Problem we are having is, when we turn the TV on in the morning, about 10 minutes, we hear a click noise in the receiver, a pop loise in the subwoofer, and the it cuts of the speark. It with click again, cuting the spearker back on, then do it agian and cut them off. It seems once it does this a few times, and comes back on, it stays on the remainder of the day. What is the problem? Do we need to make an adjustment to the receiver, because of the upgrade. We original had moster cables. Do we need to replace them? Hope you can help. Tony (

Sony Receiver Str-av370 ... The red "P"

i have the same receiver and i also have the same problem,
this happens when i turn the volume or the bass too loud.

it suddenly clicks and the sound cuts off. then the flashing red P appears.

My solution: As soon as it happens, quickly press the power button twice (turn off, turn back on)
and turn the volume knob all the way down. wait 2-3 seconds and it will click back to normal.

If you take too long before turning off the receiver when the P appears it will not work.
In this case you have to unplug the power cord and let it rest for at least 20 mins then plug it back in.

hope this helps!
ps: I've been using this receiver for mure than 8 years so i'm quite used to it!

When you attach the flas to the camera can exidentli fire. This is normal, and manufacturer recomendation, turn off the flas unit before attach or deattach, prevent this fireing. Fireing when you turn the flashead is not normal. Probably the mounting foot of the flash unit can move in the hotshoe, breaking connections between the connector pins, causing exidental fiering. Always lock the locking lever of the flas, wich can prevent this unwanted movement. Also chek the hotshoe on the camera, wich should to have a "leaf spring" keeping the flash unit steady.
