Make sure the unit is off, then replace the wire. Chances are, if they hit it one spot, they hit it in another. If it was a "Company" that did the carpet work, take a picture of the damage to the wire. If you repair/replace the wire and the unit still shuts off, pull all the wires off the back of the receiver and turn it back on, if it stays on, you have more than one bad wire. If it immediately cuts off, it needs to be repaired. You should contact the installation company and let them know what happened, if they have a good reputation, they will pay for your repair. Hope this helps

Sound through only one speaker


Check the other speaker which do not work. In most cases, the speaker is found faulty. If so, replace it with a similar one.

Hi, my sys was working fine then 2 cables of one of the speakers came off by accident and now I can't get any sound at all to any ok the speakers I plug all right but I only get sound al the headphones...


Some of the new systems have a separate headphone amplifier chip. In that case when your wires came off , they must have shorted a second damaging the output amplifier. The protection circuit turns on disabling both the channels . On Sony systems a warning display comes on and the stereo goes to standby mode till the fault is fixed .

How do you reset the TX-SR603X receiver? Will that help? my receiver turns on then shuts right off


Try thiThe most common problem found on FixYa for Audio Video Receiver's is:

My receiver say's "Protect" or turns on then off. What's wrong? Seven times out of ten it is a shorted speaker or speaker wire. To determine your exact problem, the first step is to disconnect all speaker wires "at your receiver" Next: Turn the receiver back on. If your receiver still says "protect" or turns off, it needs to be serviced. If your receiver stays on; reconnect your speakers one at a time and power back up after each speaker. You may find that after reconnecting all speaker wires it works! Most commonly the small braids of wire from the + to the - have touched and have caused the problem. In some instances, you noticed the problem only when turning the volume up. either way, make sure the exposed wires to your receiver are no longer than 1/2" long and are completely under the screw down terminal or slide in. When you've found the wire or speaker with the problem, your receiver will go back into "protect" At this point, disconnect the wire from the speaker at the speaker that may be causing the problem then test again.* Note* Make sure speaker wires do Not touch each other as this Will cause a short! If you turn the receiver back on and it stays on, you now know the problem is in your speaker itself. To test your speaker, you will need a multimeter. Set it to ohms resistance and touch the speaker terminals, if there is a short internally the meter will read "1......" If it's an analog meter, it will peg to the right. There's your problem. Now, within any speaker there are quite a few possibilities as to what could be causing the problem. Most common is a blown coil and the speaker needs to be replaced. Some speakers have internal crossovers (usually floor standing speakers) and may have a shorted or burnt board (usually very visible brown burn marks on the board) and can possibly be repaired if your handy with a soldering iron. Now, if you disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and it still says "protect" Check your wire for the obvious cut or nail thru the wire if possible. If your system has wiring that runs behind walls, you may need to use your meter again. Disconnect the wire at both ends, keep the ends separated, put your meter on ohms resistance and touch probes to the + and - wires at one side. If the meter pegs to the right or reads "1...." the wire is shorted and needs to be replaced or repaired at the short. Hope this helps. s.

Front-Right Speaker Not Working


I would have a look inside, it might be a bad soldering joint that got disturbed in the move. When you get inside follow the wires from the Front-Right terminal.

My kenwood av surround receiver vr-209 is turning on then turning off right away. what could be wrong and how do you fix it?


Disconnect all speakers at the receiver, then turn it on. If it still cuts out, it's a power supply, capacitor, or transister issue and will need to be serviced. If it stays on, re connect speakers one by one and turn the receiver back on until you find the problem wire or speaker. Once you find the wire or speaker that's causing the problem, disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and turn it back on again. (Make sure wires are separated) if it still cuts out, check the entire wire or replace it. if it stays on, check the speaker with a meter for a short. If your not comfortable with doing that, any electronics shop will generally do it for you for free. This is the most common problem among all brands of receivers. Wires get crossed and short, then short the power supply. Hope this helps. If you need further help troubleshooting, post a comment and I will be glad to help.

Audio quit suddenly


Sounds Like your pr-amps are shot. You may have incorrectly wired the power lines up. If you are handy with a meter and check the middle legs of the pre-amps and see that you have continuity one way and none the other. If this isn't the case then they are shot or whatever ones dont pass this test. pop them out and order new ones. About $20.00
