it's obviously getting interferance fronm that whole house broadcast unit (not abnormal!) best and only thing you can do is to move the stereo to a place where you can get the MOST am stations the loop ant. is exactly what it says it is a loop of wire with two ends..both ends connect to the ant. input on the back of the unit..however if that whole house broadcast unit is the devil then an ant. no matter what or how it's made will only recieve more static not built to reject static! so you've got to move it unfortunately ..fm is a totally different band obviously fm isn't being affected by that whole home broadcast unit..you're lucky! on that count
Unless you feel confident opening up the unplugged unit and looking for a fuse or other simple fix, then it's time for the repair shop to take a look. ALWAYS ask for an estimate on the repair before work is done but don't be surprised if a "no-fix" will require a estimate fee payment.
Normally when receiver keeps entering protection mode it means wires are crossed or touching somehwere. Double check all speaker wire connections at the receiver and speakers. More than likey the positive and negative wires are touching at one of the terminals.
A tape loop connection would allow you to bypass it completely, otherwise not much difference.
Attach it in any tape loop as you would any other processor or tape deck. Or get a dbx 400 Program Route Selector that supports 3 tape decks and 3 processor loops and allows selection and utilization of any or all before or after the tapes, while using only one tape loop on the receiver or preamp.
I have a C-9, a 400 and some other audio toys to justify having the 400.
The AM loop antenna needs to connect between the terminals marked as "AM ANT" and "GND" on the rear top right corner of the amp. This is the normal configuration for a loop antenna. The other option(not using a loop antenna) is to connect "GND" with a single insulated wire to a decent earth connection (2 m copper stake hammered into the ground or a water pipe, and a single wire elevated as long and as high as you can. this style of antenna system is not generally used these days, as the transmission power of radio stations has increased greatly over the years so that a small loop antenna will do the job So, most stations should be tunable with just the loop, remember however, that it will be directional. If the loop is in proximity to other electronic gear, it may not perform as well. Keep it as far away from the rest of your gear as you can.
You will generally get no AM stations AT ALL until you have connected the loop to both terminals. Happy to talk to you further about this. Please rate my solution. Cheers
have you connected the antenna?since most receivers do not have an internal antenna an external one is provided.A LOOP ANTENNA(square plastic wires bound together) FOR AM and a LONG WIRE ANTENNA for FM.I hope this helps.
