Re: getting my amplifier out of protect mode

There is a problem with one or both of the audio amplification circuits. The amp is going into "protect mode" to protect your speakers. I'm afraid there is no simple fix. this will need to go to the shop to be repaired...

...unless you have been tinkering with the speaker connections recently. In which case, make sure all connections are sound & there are no wires touching other wires. This causes a short circuit. Leave it disconnected from the mains overnight. There's a slim chance it might spring back to life tomorrow.

Good luck & let me know how you get on.

The amplifier has gone into protect mode and will stay in that mode until the cause is corrected.

Hi, try powering up the unit with out any speaker connected if it still goes to PROTECT try factory reset if possible.
To reset the AV receiver to its factory defaults, turn it on and, while holding down VCR/DVR, press ON/STANDBY. "Clear" will appear on the display and the AV receiver will enter standby mode.
If this does not fix your problem you should take your unit to service . :)

I get no sound from my nad t175 preamp connected to a nad t973 (7 ch.) regardless of the media - rca, hdmi, et al. The fuse in the amp is fine, all the lights are working. Regarding the t175 i can see...

Possible that the amplifier has tripped and so gone to a protection mode. Remove power for few hours, press down all panel switches to drain off voltage from the processor. Also check for any short on the speakers before it is powered on.

I have a onkyo M-5150 Amp-Was working fine and just quit. I blew a fuse replaced it and now no sound. AMP comes on but no sound. Is there a way to reset this amp

if a fuse blow there is a big chance that another fuse on the main circuit is blown also it should be on the protection unit.

TEAC A-H300 Amp no output

If you still have the following voltages (0.3,44,0) and (-.1,-44,0) then the final stage is not turned on and you will only get low level sound. The driver +/or bias circuits are defective. Disconnect the center lead from each of the transistors and measure the 2 outer leads to ground,. Check the driver transistors for either an open or shorted condition and replace as necessary. Once the driver and bias circuits are working, the 2 outer leads should read +/- 0.5 and 0.

That should resolve the problem. Look for low valued resistors that are open.

Keep us posted.

Teac legacy AG-800 AV receiver.

Hi most amplfiers have DC offset and short circuit protection. Since you have removed all the loads it should not have a short circuit on it, the other possibility is DC on the input so I would recomend trying disconnecting the inputs as one of them may have DC on it, however this is unfortunately unlikely. The most likely cause is that the unit has gone wrong and the power amplifer is faulty. One last thing you could try is too open the unit up and make sure all the cables and PCBs are connected properly sometimes a loose connection can cause this type of fault. Failing that, unless you know how to fault find electronics, you will need to take it to a repair center or replace it. Regards, Andrew

I found the thread of one of my speaker cables was touching the backboard of the amp and shorting out - problem solved!

Unable to find the parts

It depends on what parts. Most parts can be generic replacenents some such as power transformers are model and manufactuer specific.
MCM electronics has many parts.
Good Luck

The amp is going into "protect mode". This means there is a bad part or parts being detected. Professional service will be needed.
