Re: turns off


Based on your post description, a short was introduced to the output of your system (wires touched). Since you were playing at a high level and the touching wires represents a 0 ohms load, there is a strong possibility that the power amplifier burned (too low a load at too high an output). The burnt component then represents a failure. When you try and power on the unit, it will go to its built-in diagnostics/initialization stage where it will sense the fault and thereafter go to auto-protect (shutdown).

Corrective measure would involve opening the unit and performing diagnosis of the circuitry and components check. Since these call for familiarity with electronics, use of a DVM and a soldering iron, perhaps your best course of action would be to seek the services of a qualified audio technician. Should you venture a do-it-yourself, you would need to concentrate on the audio amp, specifically the finals or outputs which could be a large power IC or a MOSFET pair. Determining which is at fault would simply be removing suspected component and verify that the unit will power on albeit any sound output. Of course the usual precautionary safety measures apply when working with live units.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Sa-he70 subwoofer no sound

Hi, The sub woofer does have a level control, is this indicating that the level is moving?
Woofers are a power device and usually active, i.e. needing a power amplifier to feed them. If this is a stand alone speaker though try using an AA battery on the wires. you should here a click when you touch a battery on it. If you can see the cone move out then the wire that goes to the + of the battery is the red or positive wire, if not turn the battery around. do not use anything higher that AA i.e.1.5V If you hear a click the speaker is ok and the amplifier is either faulty or not turned up.

Volume turns down by itself until it says VOLMIN

I have a Samsung home theater system model HT-D6730W. I have had some issues with the volume turning itself down till it says volmin. I've seen that I'm not the only one with this issue!!!! I have tried all the suggestions that were posted. Doing a hard reset, changing settings, I bought a cooling pad for laptops Hopi g those would fix it. I called Samsung support Which was a joke!!! I took the putter cover off and cleaned all the dust from the unit, removed batteries from remote, removed all cable connection on the back of the unit other than the HDMI cable going to the tv. Having done all that the unit was still turning its self down. I'm a bit of a tinker and so while the cover was off of the unit, displaying all the delicate stuff inside, I turned on the home theater system and played a movie set the volume to a good listening sound. When it started to turn it self down I remove the wide wire ribbon from the main circuit board going to the touch panel on the front of the unit. Voila!!! Sound quit going down!!!! I unplugged unit and removed front touch panel and cleaned all dust from the inside of it. Put it all back together. Tested. Still doing it. Removed the touch panel again and this time I disconnected the small wire ribbon for the volume touch buttons. Reassembled and tested. NO MORE ISSUES!!! Everything on the front still works other than the volume buttons. You can still change the volume using the remote!!!! I hope this finds everybody that is having this issue with there unit.

Vizio sound bar model vsb211

It might be clipping so just try turning it down. If you usually listen to it loud it might have blown though. The problem also might be your power supply if it cant keep up with the power needed for the speaker

I have the coby 765, when i switch the buton to tv it is very loud even with the tv and dvd player turned completely down

Unfortunately the subwoofer should have a volume control knob, and the subwoofer for the DVD765 does not have this, that is why it is so loud, the only work around is to get an audio cable with a built in volume control knob.

My subwoofer doesn't seem loud enough. I have it set to 80%. Is there other settings that might solve this problem?

Bas response is highly dependent on room boundaries, speaker placement and relative listening position.

Page 13
"Place the subwoofer at the corner of the

room. Otherwise, keep it at least one
meter away from the TV."

You might experiment with moving the sub around.

My subwoofer shuts off when I turn it up too loud. How do I fix it?

Don't turn it up so loud.
Or get a bigger subwoofer.

It's got a junk 6.5 inch speaker and the amp barely does 50 clean watts.
Claims 167 Watts at 10% distortion - impossible when it is drawing 160.
Drive it too hard and protection circuit will cut in and shut it down.

When you turn player on: Screen said "Hello" , then "Protection"

Sounds simple... usually "protection" means that a speaker or a speaker wire is shorted out. Or that the volume is just too damned high... how loud is the receiver's volume setting? If the bass tone control is jacked and the loudness button is on, even with no shorted wires, the amp can go into protection from an internal overdrive. Might be that you just need to do like your mom says and turn it down!
If you have an ohmmeter, speaker or wiring problems are easy to test, if you don't, you can still do it all mechanically... here's how
Turn off the receiver and start by disconnecting your speaker wires at the back of the receiver. With all of the speaker wires removed, does the thing still go into protection when you turn it back on?
If not, good. If it does, find a service center.
Re-connect the speakers to the appropriate terminals one speaker at a time, turning off the receiver each time you make a connection. After connecting one speaker, turn the receiver on and see if it shuts down. If not, then turn it off and add one more speaker.
Do this until you find the culprit. Leave that suspected bad speaker's wires disconnected from the receiver and test all the rest, connecting all but the bad wires.
Now, disconnect the speaker from the other end of the bad wires and spread the bare wires apart so they don't short out. Connect the wires ONLY at the amplifier end and turn the amp back on. Protection?
If yes, the wire is shorted out somewhere. got cats?? If everything is OK, turn off the receiver and reconnect the speaker and test again. Make sure the wires aren't shorted at the back of the speaker. You really need to check all the speakers to make sure their connections are "clean" and make sure that there are no stray wire strands anywhere or that the wires aren't stripped too much so they might be able to short out. After the wires are connected to either a speaker or an amplifier, you shouldn't be able top see much of any bare wire, but you already know that, right?
Some folks strip way too much off the wire and the wires simply touch the wrong things and ... badness happens.
If all the connections are clean and the receiver still shuts down when this speaker is connected and the receiver is turned on, swap a working speaker onto these wires, leaving the suspect speaker disconnected and making sure the other bare wires won't touch anything or each other.
Back on with the working speaker... good? If so, then we're determining that the problem is probably in that one speaker. If not, then we have a deeper problem.
Reconnect the suspect speaker to the other wires and try again. Good? Then you have "fixed" the problem by cleaning up the wiring connections. If it shuts down again, then you need to fix or replace the bad speaker.
If everything works now with the volume down and such, then just use a little self control. If it's still messed up, you may need a trip to the service shop
Good Luck

The speaker wires are crossed!! That means the negative part of the speaker wire is somehow touching the positive side. Check all wires from the reciever to all speakers. Good luck.

have u checked for loosened pieces in the subwoofer case ?
Most probably is the wire that connect on to the speakers membrane, that broke off from the glue it holds it ...

also check the filters ... (the capacitors , see if they are inflated,burned, or blackened, and if so change them ..)
