Question about Sony MHC-GX450 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Power problems My stereo keeps shutting off out of the blue..... i have my ipod hookup playing through the game mode but more of the problem is the entire stereo unit shuts down in mid songs or just anytime. Its not like it turns off, it looses all power, completely shuts off. the power button has a red flashing light but wont turn back on. If i change plugs it sometimes turns back on....it has been happening more frequently lately. Any ideas?

The set is detecting a problem internally and shutting down to prevent further damage. This is often call protection mode. I would guess that there is either a bad connection somewhere or a part starting to fail. If there is a pattern to the failures, a quick trip to the repair shop is in order armed with that info. Rough guess would be abaout $30 in parts plus the local labor rate. This is based upon my own repair experience with these systems.

How to connect an iPod to a Tritton AX720 Touch


<p>While the Tritton AX720 headset is designed to communicate with other users play games on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game consoles, can also be used to play music from your iPod to surround improving the sound. The kit comes with AX720 Controller in a row to adjust the volume of the headset to adjust, and in combination with an audio cable to connect the controller online for the iPod Touch. Unfortunately, since the iPod Touch is connected to the controller in-line, you cannot communicate with other users if you play a game simultaneously. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect one end of the stereo audio cable to the door on the right side of the controller online. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the other end of the audio cable stereo headphone port at the bottom of the iPod Touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Connect the headset cable into the headset jack is located on the back of Tritton AX720 amplifier. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Connect the power cord from the power amplifier of the port, and plug the adapter into an outlet. Press the power amplifier, which is found on the front of the unit. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Press the "Play" button on the iPod Touch to play the music to start. Slide the wheel on the right side of the in-line volume controller to adapt the music to hear. <br />

Hi,
You can try to do a system recovery on your PS3. this will set your PS3 back to factory settings as the settings may have been changed during the use. Here is the process in which you can do a system recovery.'

PS3 Recovery Menu


  1. Place the PS3 in standby mode
  2. Press and hold the power button for a couple of seconds, you should hear a beep
  3. Keep a hold of the power button for a couple more seconds, the PS3 should shut back down to standby mode
  4. Once this happens, press and hold the power button again for a couple of seconds, waiting for 1 single beep.
  5. Ignore this beep and keep it pressed until you hear 2 consecutive beeps, release the button.
I think you choose option 3 and then repeat and choose option 4. Once you are done with this, try out your PS3.

When i have the stereo on radio my amp/subs work fine, but as soon as i switch the mode to USB ( built in ipod connector) it cuts out the power to the amp/subs. It only works on tuner mode (radio) why?


use the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on) instead of the blue wire (power antenna remote turn on) to turn your amp on. the power antenna wire shuts off when leaving tuner mode.

How do you hook up your ipod through the rca cable hookups in the back without the radio still playing?


This is different on every stereo, but generally the RCA ports in the back of the stereo are labeled "Aux" or something to that extent.

First, you must purchase a headphone jack to RCA cable which can connect to both your stereo and your ipod.

Connect the cable, turn your ipod on and start playing a song. Turn the volume on the stereo to a moderate volume so you can hear when the song is being played through your stereo. Then, using the selector switch, turn the stereo from "Radio" to "Aux" or whatever it says next to the the RCA plug ins on the back.

Only 3 speakers play with ipod all other is ok


Are you playing your ipod through the stereo with a cable in aux mode? If so check your fader and balance settings when in aux.
there would be no other reason except for speaker wiring check and make sure there is no auxiliary wiring that may not be hooked up.
if it's not settings, then it's wiring, unless your stereo has an internal problem in the auxiliary circuit.

How to hookup an IPOD to a pioneer avh-p6500 car stereo


If your car stero has a stereo audio input connector then you can plug a cable in the headphone on the IPod and the other end of the cable into the stereo audio input on the car stereo.
If you don't have an stereo input on the car stereo then you can buy a FM transmitter that is powered by the car's cigarette socket, connect the IPod to the transmitter, switch on the car radio and tune it to the FM station that matches the FM transmitter.
You can now listen to your IPod from the car radio.

Harman Kardon Go + Play Portable Speaker Keeps Shutting Off


I just had this exact problem. I'm using an ipod mini. I solved it by docking the ipod firmly at the angle
the dock is at and have the ipod at an angle, not flat. I put the plastic and rubber adapter for the mini as instructed and also placed the rubber adapter for the nano upside down to keep
the ipod propped at an angle. (Also can use something similar to keep ipod propped up at an angle)
Took a while when I first used to figure out how the dock worked. The dock is a little weird how it is hinged to go from an angle to flat. Nothing in the instructions about this. By putting the ipod flat it would still have a connection to charge and play but the power shuts off every 10 minutes. I spent a whole night having it shut off every 10 minutes. This drives me crazy when systems have features like that which always seems to cause more problems (just my humble opinion)
By having the ipod at an angle I'm currently just now having it run an hour and 20 minutes and counting with no shut offs,(fingers crossed) but so far so good.
Saw on the internet that if the ipod is not connected firmly the system has an auto shut down. I think the ipod's weight propped at an angle keeps the connection firm. Also some said they want to see the ipod display, there you go!!!! This seems to be working so far for me, may be worth a try...I was about to return mine but I love the sound so I'm keeping mine now!!!! Works fine. Happy camper again.
Please reply if this works for anyone it worked for me.
