Unable to turn PROTECTION ON, off!

We have just moved house and for some reason whenever I try to play my music above volume 49, the whole thing cuts out and the word PROTECTION ON, appear on the screen. This has never happened before as far as I am aware.

I have a Kenwood Tuner with Graphics Equalizer model Number C-H5.

I have tried to remove it, but the manual got lost in the move and I am now at a loss as to how to sort this problem out. It is quite an old model now but before the move was still working beautifully and I am very loathe to get id of it if it is something that can be easily sorted.
I really appreciate your help
Many thanks,

Annie, your tuner, is it a receiver that incorporates the main audio amplifier as well? and your equalizer is an additional gadget only? are you sure you got it wired correctly?

If you're connection is the usual since you have moved places, something must be wrong in your amplifier output stage or your speakers too, or since this happened only when you changed place maybe you wrongly interchanged the plus/minus cables. Your amp wil activate protection at 50% vol. That displayed protection on means overcurrent in the amplifier output stage, either you have a bad speaker or overdriven input stage, the output then consequently overdrives as well. check first your speaker polarity. Also try to reduce the equalizer output level to 75% maybe. then try it again if it still does the same, we'll try something else. not a big thing to rewqire your eqaulizer to your receiver. even without the manual

Need to check your ground wire it has worked news from where you got it hooked up at or at the amplifier even though it seems like is hooked up if is not properly plugged up or if it your amplifier will come on but is not getting the necessary ground to work properly you may also want to check your Hotwire make sure that it is plug up properly and at the battery terminal make sure that it is not corrodedalso are you sure you are getting enough wattage to your amplifieranother words is your battery putting out enough power to it

Hi.. M using a djm 800. dont know what happened but the lights of master volume are not moving up.only 2 green lihgts are on. it is not even reaching the orange level. on increasing the sound from the...

There is a master attenuation adjustment on the back labelled MASTER ATT. By turning this setting down you effectively lower the output volume from the XLR (3 pin connections) giving you the ability to run more level through the desk and see the metering.
Another way is to run your speakers or amp at a lower volume and turn the djm800 up which will give the same result.

We have live sound and where do you begin to find the proper setting with an equilizer?

Always start from flat( sliders all in the middle) . If you are eqing for feedback open up your microphone volume to where they just start to ring, and then back down just under the point where they ring. SLOWLY and individually slide up slightly each slider one at a time in the range you think the ringing is coming from (low, mids, highs). When the ringing starts to occur back that slider under the middle setting down maybe 3 db to 6 db. Keep repeating this until most all of the ringing stops. The main trick here is to not slide too many sliders below the middle. If you do, you will actually start losing volume in the whole sound system.

If you are eqing the system for the room, gradually add or take down sliders while listening to a band or music. You can be a good judge here by making an adjustment, and then walking around the room to hear the difference. Practice makes perfect here. Keep in mind most speakers will not produce sound below 40hz, so boosting 20hz or so will not help. By the same token most people over 25 can't hear above 12-16khz so the same is true here. Good Luck

I have a used 3.1 preamp. recently it started to make a scratching noise when the volume knob is turned. this happens every morning after the car sits all night long.

bring a contact cleaner spray with oil and apply it in volume knob try with the pipe to reach volume inner and move volume forward and backward-you can obtain the contact cleaner from (radio shack)near your home.

Pioneer DJM-600 Bad feedback when i turn up the master volume

It's not your ground wire with the issue, but your RCA cables. Try disconnecting both turntables, and connect 1 at a time, and do the same test, this way you can isolate the problem. Once you've isolated the problem, then you'll need to have the RCA cables replaced on your turntable.

You might also want to check the Cartridges as well. Sometimes a bad cartridge or headshell connection will cause this issue. Worst case scenario, its your tonearm, but that should be test last.

Also, on the rear of your mixer, there is a gain volume pot, make sure this is not maxed out. Keep it about 3/4 of they up. Again, this is on the rear of your mixer where you connect everything.

Bass frequncy

Hi there,
Although I am not familiar with the Zoom HD 8 Track I am a former sound engineer so may be able to offer some general advice.
Firstly, because the wave pattern of low frequencies is very long, there are a number of things that will greatly effect bass response caused by standing waves.
1) The position of your bass monitors. Ideally these should be low down but not directly on the floor, especially if the flooring is wooden.
2) Try your monitors/speakers at a slightly different angle. Bass can bounce off walls, back towards the sound source and phase out the signal, rather like a noise cancelling system.
3) Try listening to the sound in different areas of the room. You will be amazed at how the sound pressure level will vary, simply by you moving from one position to another.
4) Never put bass tracks exactly at centre, always offset them slighly by a few degrees left or right.
5) Do some of your mixing using headphones, you will not have to worry about standing waves. But remember that things sound very different on speakers in free space.
Strangely, the reason you are getting distortion when you turn things up is probably because your bass is on the verge of over modulation to start with. Really bass is felt, not heard. You could try is to decrease your mid and high frequencies a little. The ratio between high frequencies and low ones will then increase by default and your bass may feel heavier.
What are you mixing?
