    Thanks for the help. I unplugged the rec. and then replog all the speaker wire but still no power. When I try to turn it on, it clicks like it wants to come on but no power. How hard is it to replace the fuse? Could you tell me how or should I take it and have someone do it? Thanks again for your help!!!

Thermal issue is shutting down amps till temps moderate. You must be driving your system too hard. And check out your tone control settings especially the bass. Every 3 db boost forces amp to double power at that frequency so if you are already blasting at 100 watts, a 3 db boost will compel amp to put out 200 watts, etc. Very easy to overdrive and overheat amp. You might want to try blowing air over output stages to improve cooling at high volume levels.

You are lucky that you have good protection circuits - otherwise by now you would have blown the output stages.

Boat stereo shuts off when turning up the volume


When any radio shuts off wth high volume it is caused by several things.

1. The maximum power output was reached and the unit goes into the self protection mode.

2. The most common reason.... The power transistor has partially failed and will not provide the partially amplfied output necessary.

3. Units with removable face plates vibrate enough to disengage the face plate contacts so the unit shuts off.

4. The speakers are too big for the radio causing it to self protect. (system mis-match)

5. Loose connectors/pins on the radio input and output connections.

6. A poor system ground that is good enough for low volume use but when high power use is encountered the ground is not good enough to carry the amperage necessary.

These are the most comon reasons for a unit to shut off at higher volumes.

It is not always an easy fix troubleshooting this problem. I know first hand as a life long electrician that has the exact same problem with the radio in my automobile. (Mine appears to be a power transistor grounding problem) With shipping to the repair center each way and the flat rate repair cost it would cost as much as a new one!

Thanks for using FixYa.

Avr Shuts down at high volume


It does that because there is a safety feature in all the newer devices. If your system is turned up to high you would blow your audio outputs or speakers. That's why it shuts off.

The unit is shutting itself off because it has detected a problem in the output stage. In many cases the problem is in the front end. That front end stage is allowing some DC current to pass on to the output stage. DC on the outputs is bad. This unit requires service. Expect a parts cost in the range of $10-$20. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost.

Shuts down at high volume


If you have your reciever in an entertainment center that is enclosed or a tight fit for the reciever you need to remove it and put it on top of the center. I have a VR407 and it was doing the same thing. This keeps your unit much cooler and the overheat relay will not turn it off. also I found it much easier to add or wire components much easier.
