Check all your cables, not likely but just in case.
Try removing all but two. Left and Right. Does it still happen,
If you can identify the speaker channel try swapping the speaker if possible.

It sounds like one of the speakers has an issue, could be a short in a cross over or speaker coil. If true the speaker is drawing too much current and causes the protect circuit to trip.

Depending on the quality either replace the blown speaker driver or purchase new ones.

If the speaker is not the issue it could be an issue with a power amp. Best to take it in for service.

Have noise on left back speaker channel of onkyo 606 blocking sound from movies etc


Hi Brendan, have you swapped the speaker from the left channel to the right one so that we can be sure that it is not the speaker? You can also try a hard reset:

To do the reset you need to turn the receiver on, then on the front panel of the receiver press and hold the "VCR/DVR" button while doing that press the "STANDBY/ON" button. You will see the word "Clear" in the display screen and the receiver will go into standby mode. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR AUDIO & VIDEO ASSIGNMENTS ON THE RECEIVER PLUS YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR SPEAKER CONFIGURATIONS, SPEAKER DISTANCE AND ALL LEVEL CALIBRATION SETTINGS. YOU WILL ALSO LOSE ANY PROGRAMMED RADIO STATIONS IN MEMORY. Once the receiver goes into standby mode turn it back on and go thru the setup menu for all custom settings.

Nad C350 2 channel Amp continually in protection mode


That could indeed be the issue, but you must check your speakers, wiring, and also the oupt stages for problems. Maybe the prtection circuits are actually doing their job. lol

Hope that helps...

My NAD T747 keeps shutting down in Protection Mode at 6db when it used to go much louder. I cleaned the unit. Still nothing.


Modern AV receivers such as your NAD have protection circuits to prevent damage when there is a short on the speaker terminals. Look carefully at the speaker connections on the back of the AV receiver- for example, the speaker cable for front left speakers labelled + and - : there should not be any stray strands of wire that connect from + to - ; this would be a short circuit. Check each of the connections on the AV receiver as well as on the back of each of your Speakers themselves. Also ensure all connections are snug (do not use pliers). If this does not solve your problem, you may need to take your AV receiver on for a service checkup. Good luck !

Denon avr2312ci shuts off and blinks red


Yes that is why. The receiver is protecting itself from an un-stable load impedance which causes current/voltage spikes through the final amplifier components and proportionally through the input where the protection relay is (click),. Do not continue using the amp until you have repaired or replaced the blown speakers. A rule of thumb is to maintain 8 ohms on each speaker wire plugged into the amp. Keep that in mind or eventually you will damage it.

Going to protective mode with load sounds, why?


Sounds like a speaker going bad or being over-driven.

My nad t753 reciever went into protect mode. i switched it off and was able to get it back into standby mode. The receiver switches back on but no sound comes out of the monitors. I can even switch between...


Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'nekkid'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Receiver will not operate. when powered on red light flashes, menu displays, than thee is a loud click and the red light keeps flashing. tried the reset and it still does not work.


This sounds like the unit is going in to protect mode. See the link below for further information. Specifically to your unit, we need to know the model number. Also, try disconnecting the speaker cables completely and try again. Update this with how the unit reacts. If the unit powers up fine, then there is a problem with either the wiring to the speakers or the speakers themselves.

Please keep us posted.

Thanks,

HK avr 446 turns on but no sound, the two little speakers light up and just keep flashing. speakers ar hooked up right. At first you did her sound, when i was hooking up another seaker i hit the ground...


The channel on which you touched the ground has been shorted so the final amplifier from that channel failed and the entire receiver is now in protected mode.
You will have to replace it: a complicated job, that you should leave to a repair shop - take it to one and be prepared for a stiff bill, at least $200.
