SOURCE: Speakercraft DBB12100 Amplifier, Circuit problem

Sounds like its a problem with over heating. open unit clean out all dust and dust bunnies wich compressed air. check that all fans are opperating. (fans on 6x100 amp units or thermal controled). If amp goes into protection prior to fans turning, there is your answer. the @ power supplies will have a green light on the output side. if the light in on power supply is good. or you can check that the output voltage is at 48Vdc on both units.

SOURCE: I have Nuvo Essentia D amplifier. Worked for 6

The clicks are generated by 2 causes:
1 - the arrival of the electric current thru the amplifier circuit in the speaker in a large amount- it's supposed to happen, after that the current drops to the stand-by value very quickly. If a zone doesn't click then the amplifier of that zone has failed and when connected it draws so much power that the overall voltage drops so low that the processor of the unit is no longer capable of working and the system freezes.
2 - inside the unit there are also small relays that are used to power the amplifiers on command . If one of them is shorted the corresponding amplifier will not work and the relay will draw a lot more current than usual.
From what you describe it appears that several amplifiers hare in different states of failing: 3 completely, 2 already has secondary bleeding and is close to complete short, 4 has just started to fail. The unit will have to be tested, the failed amplifier circuits replaced and the power source inspected for damage. The job isn't complicated but it requires a basic electronics experience.

SOURCE: What causes cracking, popping sounds on most zones of a MZC 66 amplifier controller?

Try this to isolate where it is coming from. Either the zone amps are defective, which is not likely, or the main amp is at fault. Hard to believe they are mis-wired, they typically are foolproof in this area.

At the main controller, try the two zones that are good and plug them into the 4 bad zones one at a time and see if you get the same symptom. If you do, then it is not the main controller and something common to the 4 zones is causing the issue. If they are wireless, then you my have interference so check if you can select different channels.

Check your settings on the main system setup mode and make sure the amp is enabled. If you still have an issue, post a comment and I can help you further.

Technically, yes but not so it would yield BD-quality audio or video. You need a control receiver that accepts either HDMI/DVI INPUT for 720I and above video. The digital audio in will probably suffice.

You have a bad amplifier section and your unit will need to be repaired by a technician. I would disconnect the speakers to prevent possible damage. In some cases components in line with the transistors will be bad in the amplifier also. There is no way to tell without electrically testing the unit in shop. Estimated repair cost would be in the 60 to 80 dollar range depending on the number of parts that are bad and the labor rate in your area.

Turn off zone 2 then turn your receiver on the main zone on Radio, tune in a station and check for audio. Post a comment and let me know if audio works that way. If you don't have any audio, list your other equipment makes and models as well as how they are interconnected to your receiver (cable type) and I will help you troubleshoot

Do you get sound on Audio Line-Out pins of LG TV?
You can check sound at Audio Line Out pins by connecting any Amplifier / Home Theater system. If TV has sound out at Line Out terminals, then Output Amp is defective in your TV.
If there is no sound on above said pins, then its some thing complicated and needs service manual to rectify.
Good Luck.

I was moving around my large woofer speaker last night and then all of a sudden the unit went into protection mode. I tried all the various solutions posted on here and nothing worked. Then I went back to my speaker connections on the woofer and unplugged them and plugged them in again and it seems to be ok now. Very annoying problem. Can I suggest unplugging all the speaker cables and replugging them back in. Also another solution may have been holding down the power button when powering up the unit. Give all the above a try.

Disconnect the unit from the mains at the wall socket. Leave powered down for 5 mins to ensure a good reset and turn unit on again and see what happens. If there is still no life. Check for failed fuses inside amp. ALWAYS RELACE FUSES WITH THE SAME RATING AND TYPE.
