Question about Audio & Video Receivers
I have an NAD 7250 PE Receiver It's about 19 years old.
As I turn the volume knob I hear a static noise. It use to go away as the amp warmed up but it now continues even after an hour. The noise comes and goes more coming than going at this point.
I tried a spray into the volume knob area (pulled the knobs off) no effect.
I have opened the outside case used air to clean the inside. Yes lots of dust etc. I don't see any easy way to get into the volume control unit.

Open the receiver and locate the potentiometer for the volume. There should be small openings in which you can spray electrical contact cleaner. The spray can be found at any electronic supply store (Radio Shack). Make sure the product says no or zero residue. I use a product called "Electrosolve". After spraying, immediately rotate the pot back and forth a few times. You may need to repeat this process two or three times. You might as well hit the other controls while you're at it. If several attempts don't eliminate the problem, the pot will need to be replaced.

It sounds like your volume control pot has dust in it.You need to remove your cover from the receiver,spray pure denatured alcohol in the small openings in the back of you volume control dial and turn the knob all the way up and down several times and then blow low compressed air threw the same small openings while rotating your dial.That should fix your problem.Be sure you unplug your receiver before performing this procedure.

There is a disparity in the impedance of the speakers and the outputs of the receiver - the speakers are too weak and they act as a short , damaging the amplifiers , hence the Protect status being engaged.
Trying to run the receiver with a wrong set of speakers has probably damaged it. Get a correct one and try the setup only with it, if you're lucky it was just the safety system cutting the output.
