The unit has a built in protection mode if a fault occurs in the speaker wiring. If its in protection mode the power button light will flash and display goes blank. Try disconnecting all speakers and see if it stays on, if so it could be a shorted speaker wire or bad speaker.

The red indicator merely shows power is getting to the set. Probably the power supply has failed.

Mower wont start

you will have to check a few things to diagnose it:

1) check the spark plug. check it for spark with a spark tester (best way) or by holding it against the engine metal somewhere and give a pull to see if you see a spark. If no spark go to #3 else go to #2.

2) if you have spark, you need to see if it turns over. get some starting fluid and just give it a quick spray in the intake (air filter usually) to the carburator. try starting it fairly quickly before the spray evaporates. If the engine turns over, then you have a carburator, fuel or fuel tank problem.

3) if you have no spark, replace the spark plug. if you still have no spark likely you need a new starter coil.

Remember you could have a combination of both of these types of problems.

Receiver turns off after DVD is turned on. Clicking noise. Check speaker wires

It's a issue with alot of these Receivers I personally had this issue on my Receiver. the issue is a ground Fault the protection mode for over current in some of Yamaha's and HK receivers are the Two main Relay's if the Ground inside the amp is lose or is causing a Ground Loop this will happen. as you turn on the DVD there is a slight leak of Positive current tru a bad Capacitor and Resistor on the DVD player causing the Ground to send a instant burst of -Vcc to the Amp's ground setting the Protection mode on. but because it's not caused by the Receiver it self sometimes it looks like the Amp just shut it self down. In better words Try to Ground the DVD before you hook up again. use the Outlet Ground also if you use a 1K resistor on the ground wire it will help to keep any noise from coming in. Let me know. Marcelo Good Luck.

Tuner Keeps Turning Off when a Loud Noise is Played

It's a receiver, not a tuner.

Clearly something is overloading it or forcing it into self protection.

What else is drawing power from the same souce as the receiver, or from its convenience outlet. There IS a limit to how much current it will support.

Try checking the speaker connections and their impedance to make sure it's not unacceptably low.

Dvd10 optoma projector makes a loud noise

Hi, I'm not sure if it's the same problem I had..
I had it on picture mute, for maybe 15 mins, which may not have been a good idea. While it was muted, it made a sparking sound, and then a very loud grinding noise. When turned off, the lound noise stops, and the fan continues as usual for about a minute. As soon as it's turned back on, the grinding noise is back. But the logo seemed to display ok.

I took it in for repairs, and they said they needed to replace the color wheel to fix the problem.

It's going into protect. Unhook ALL the speakers and see if it still shuts itself off. If so, then it will have to be taken in for service.
