Unable to turn PROTECTION ON, off!

Hi
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

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

My NAD C326BEE amp goes into protection mode at moderate volume


The protection only should come on, when the power amplifier has to give more current than it can deliver. (electronic fuse)
If in the music is a lot of subsonic, sound, so low you can't hear and your speakers can't produce, this could cause the problem. Normal CD players will cut of all frequencies beneath 20 Hz, but it could be your PC is giving everything from 1 Hz and above.
I would certainly try to play some music over a CD player and check if that would solve your problem. Not sure if that works, what you could do to suppress the sub sonic in the computer music.

Well i was driving one day and my subs just whent out so i bought brand new wires and hooked everything up but the power protector light turns red whenever uu turn it up past volume 10 i really do not know...


It sounds like your amp is going into protection. I know it's frustrating, but this is actually a good thing. If you subs you have are drawing too much power and the amp can't keep up, it will shut off instead of melting the board. Usually, the protection mode only last a few seconds. The user normally turns the music down that the protection shuts off and the music plays again. I recommend looking at a larger amp for your subs, if you are going to play them that hard.

My Kenwood amplifier is having problems, whenever i turn it on. all seems well until i play some music through it, after 30seconds to a minute the music will cut off and a distinct click is sometimes...


Your amp is going into protection. The click you hear is a relay meant to protect your speakers and stereo. Check your speakers with an ohm meter for the the proper ohms ( listed on the speaker ) and physically try to push each woofer and midrange cone in gently to make sure it moves and is not stuck or frozen in place. A speaker may read correctly on an ohm meter if the woofer is ok but if the tweeter or midrange is not working it will cause the amp to go into protection mode. When you play music stick your ear up to each tweeter\midrange\woofer to ensure they are working.
Your stereo could also be the culprit although usually if it plays music it is ok as long as you are not hearing loud pops. Loud pops are voltage spikes that indicate that a transistor\IC is breaking down and will eventually short. Good luck!

I had the same problem: speakers worked, but clicked whenever they were on. They are actually Compaq speakers connected to a Dell computer. I solved the problem by moving the speakers about 12 inches farther away from my wireless router. Very easy!

Denon avr-5600 protection circuit.


My AVR 5600 has worked flawlessly for nearly 9 years!

Suddenly, when trying to play music (DVD or CD) through my LS32's (JBLPro), once I achieve higher volume, the receiver cuts off.... Using a Symetrex mixer, NO OVERLOAD light on the Denon, it simply cuts off!

Re-cut all the wire connectors... TV movies (5.1) work great at normal listening volumes.... but tonight, when cranking up music, the receiver simply cut off. Blinking light...
