Question about Televison & Video

RCA audio/video receiver fallacies......

Sometimes the receiver will shut itself off during playback or tuner operation. the LCD display will read "apm err" and it takes quite a while for it to be turned back on. Am I overheating something? is it just old? should i blow the dust out?

Note: this doesn't happen all the time. just when I need the receiver the most.......like during parties or other social functions

Sounds like overheating. Make sure it is clean and has good ventilation. Try putting it in a cold location and see if that makes a difference. Or get some cold spray and see if that helps it to turn back on quickly after it fails. If it works properly, but is just shutting off, possibly the output amps are starting to lose efficiency and if nothing is done will continue to degrade until you have a real failure, which will at least be easier to troubleshoot.

To convert a LCD Monitor into a TV
Instructions
    • 1

      Compare internal and external TV tuners that are designed for use with computers. See if the tuner supports HD, DVI, component video, S-video, stereo, surround sound or other features you might like to use. Ensure that any internal devices will work with the expansion slots in your computer.

    • 2

      Purchase a regular TV tuner if your monitor has S-video, coaxial or RCA inputs. These can be seen at the back of the monitor. S-video should be clearly marked; coaxial is a large round port, and RCA inputs are typically smaller and brightly colored. If your monitor does not have these inputs, purchase a special TV tuner designed just for computer monitors. If you would like to use the tuner with your computer and monitor, choose an internal TV tuner. If you're using your computer monitor as a television on its own, select a stand-alone external tuner. Install the internal TV in your computer, if applicable.

    • 3

      Connect the TV tuner to the monitor with the proper cable. Select S-video as the connection option if both your tuner and monitor support it. Choose RCA component video as your next option. Use coaxial only if your monitor and tuner do not have the aforementioned connections. If your monitor has none of these connections, use a standard VGA cable to connect the tuner and monitor.

    • 4

      Connect the tuner's audio outputs to your monitor's speakers. If your monitor has no speakers directly attached, connect external speakers to the TV tuner. This can usually be achieved using regular audio or RCA cable.

    • 5

      Install an HD antenna high on a wall if you will be picking up free over-the-air television signals with your monitor. If you will be using satellite or cable TV with your monitor, simply plug the satellite or cable set top box into the tuner using RCA or coaxial cables. Then connect the tuner directly to the monitor.

    • 6

      Set your tuner to the channel you use to pick up television stations. If you receive free over-the-air television, this channel will be 3 or 4. If you have satellite or cable TV, this station is determined by your television service provider. Check the documentation that came with your system to determine which channel to set the tuner on. You will probably need to change channels using the satellite or cable box rather than the TV tuner.

Receiver randomly shuts off during play


This is the "Protect" mode. It is either a bad speaker, or not good ventilation, or a channel going out in the receiver. Please provide more details about the problem so I can help you better. How long is it playing before it shuts off, does it shut off even if the volume is low? Disconnect the speakers form the receiver and then turn it on and let it play without speakers, if it still shuts off then the problem is not the speakers. More information is needed to better diagnose this problem.

Getting a "Protect" message in the display which then shuts down


The speaker wires were al little frayed, so I cut and stripped new 3/8" leads and when re-inserted the receiver worked fine. The problem was a short from the frayed wires touching either the back of the receiver or some other metal near the terminal.
