Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Sound cuts off from receiver with volumn up.

My receiver cuts off the sound when I turn the volume up beyond a point, -- and not particularly loud. If it's at the cut-off threshold, it keeps coming on and going off. Apparently, it's attempting to protect the speakers from too much volume, but this isn't loud at all. I can play it with the volume low. This just started; it's about 10 years old.

Thanks for whatever you can offer by way of assistance.

    Same problem... My Yamaha RXV-992 is about 11 years old, and has always worked quite well. About 2-3 weeks ago (Feb 2008), it began turning itself off during "loud parts" of movies and TV. Not that we watch TV very loudly or anything, it's actually quite common at "normal" listening levels. In any case, I would be interested if anyone has had thish problem before... I thought it might be one of the following:



    - Autoprotect feature

    - Output transistor failure

    - Connector / solder / wire decay



    Thanks!

    -MM

    Same problem with STR-DE197 and STR-DE185, when volume reaches past a set point, shuts off. Tried different speakers, same results.

the system protect is usually displayed when a condition of short or shorting is occurring in the speaker wiring or the voice coil of any of your speakers.... thte circuit of you reciever is trying to protect itself and you from a very costly repair,,,so it you have another set of speakers try to use them and see if the condition still exists and if it does the problem is in the output section of the receiver,,,and if the protect no longer exists you have fixed your problem,,,good luck

I set the volume to 40. After a little while the volume starts dropping down. If you do not turn the volume back up the volume will eventually go to zero all by it self and turn off the system.

I have a Panasonic HT-692 surround sound system. Any time I use the surround sound features and turn the volume to a higher level(not ear piercing mind you) the system cuts off as if a ckt breaker has


If you are playing the unit that loud, for an extended time it sounds like the unit is going into overload, meaning it's getting to hot. Try turning the volume down to 1/2 of your current level. If it stays running, you will have to cut back on your volume, before you seriously damage the unit(or your hearing)

ONKYO TX-SR608 I need to have my volumne up over 40 to get any sound and around 55 to listen to my home theatre on 5.1 . Does this sound normal? Also, how can I view the volumne when using Zone 2? I...


Yes it is normal, the 608 is a THX certified receiver, so it goes by THX reference levels.

In theory once you have run the Audyssey auto-setup with the included mic the proper reference level for watching movies will be 82 if the volume number scale is set absolute or 0dB of it is set to THX relative. At this setting the volume should be the same as watching that movie at the theater. I have mine set to power-on at a level of -30dB which corresponds to level 52 on the scale you have it set to. This is a comfortable lowish level, but I turn it up to at least -10dB AKA 72 when watching movies.

On my Sony Surround Sound tuner, if I raise the volume up to a certain level (not that loud), I get a flashing sign ''protect'' and the sound to the speakers are cut.


Sony has protection in these receivers for two main reasons.

1 - Checking for DC voltages on the outputs to speakers. Not your particular problem.

2 - Excessive current being drawn from receiver on one or more of the speakers.

Number 2 should be your starting point in finding a solution. Put the volume level on Medium - 35 to 40 on the front panel. Now listen to all you speakers in turn. Any scratching noise will indicate a defective speaker. Remove this speaker from the receiver output and check again if the set goes into protection on high volume.

If you could not find any strange noises on the speakers, remove them one by one and test the set on high volume.

Never - attempt to disengage the protection on this amplifier. The only times we have found the amplifier to be defective with this protection error, it has done so no matter the volume level. Therefore I believe your problem to be a speaker or speakers.

Good luck!

Volume


Tap the bottom left portion of the screen. That should bring up a volume slider bar.

Or, from Change Preferences, make sure sound is turned on, and check the Volume Preferences.
