The most common problem found on FixYa for Audio Videomy receiver is clicking on for a split-second then - 2_bing.gif Receiver's is:

My receiver say's "Protect" or turns on then off. What's wrong? Seven times out of ten it is a shorted speaker or speaker wire. To determine your exact problem, the first step is to disconnect all speaker wires "at your receiver" Next: Turn the receiver back on. If your receiver still says "protect" or turns off, it needs to be serviced. If your receiver stays on; reconnect your speakers one at a time and power back up after each speaker. You may find that after reconnecting all speaker wires it works! Most commonly the small braids of wire from the + to the - have touched and have caused the problem. In some instances, you noticed the problem only when turning the volume up. either way, make sure the exposed wires to your receiver are no longer than 1/2" long and are completely under the screw down terminal or slide in. When you've found the wire or speaker with the problem, your receiver will go back into "protect" At this point, disconnect the wire from the speaker at the speaker that may be causing the problem then test again.* Note* Make sure speaker wires do Not touch each other as this Will cause a short! If you turn the receiver back on and it stays on, you now know the problem is in your speaker itself. To test your speaker, you will need a multimeter. Set it to ohms resistance and touch the speaker terminals, if there is a short internally the meter will read "1......" If it's an analog meter, it will peg to the right. There's your problem. Now, within any speaker there are quite a few possibilities as to what could be causing the problem. Most common is a blown coil and the speaker needs to be replaced. Some speakers have internal crossovers (usually floor standing speakers) and may have a shorted or burnt board (usually very visible brown burn marks on the board) and can possibly be repaired if your handy with a soldering iron. Now, if you disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and it still says "protect" Check your wire for the obvious cut or nail thru the wire if possible. If your system has wiring that runs behind walls, you may need to use your meter again. Disconnect the wire at both ends, keep the ends separated, put your meter on ohms resistance and touch probes to the + and - wires at one side. If the meter pegs to the right or reads "1...." the wire is shorted and needs to be replaced or repaired at the short. Hope this helps.

My receiver clicks on a off randomly.


Hello Fixya customer,

Thank you for your question.

Are you getting on the display, possibly a "P" or "Protect" that indicates it is in the protect mode?

Hitting the top of the receiver indicates a possible intermittent component or board connection. The receiver will shut down when the Microprocessor receives various fault conditions, including shorted speaker and wires, but if it develops an internal fault it will also shut down to protect itself and the speakers.

Remove all speaker wires and inspect th terminals for any stray wires shorting the terminals.

If it still shuts down, then a professional servicer would be required.

Thanks for using Fixya, and if I can help you further, please let me know.

I can't seem to reboot my acer aspire 6920g dose anyone know how to do this as i can't work out how please help thanks stephanie


Hold down the Ctrl + Alt + Delete keys simultaneously, which will open the task manager window. Select the Shut Down pull down menu and click on Restart. If this will not work as a last resort hold down your power key for approximately 5 seconds, which will hard shut down your system and lose all data from current running applications. To restart press the power button but windows may say recovered from a serious problem but the system should work again.

Monitor shuts off during boot. Let the machine boot full up, hit the power button, the monitor flashes windows for a split second, and goes back to power saving mode


Hey there Celius,

Chances are the 'Refresh Rate' somehow got set too high for the monitor. On flatscreens , the result is a black screen.

If you have an old monitor (crt type) hook that up temporarily and reboot.
  • Right Click the Desktop
  • Click Properties
  • Click Settings
  • Click Advanced
  • Click Monitor
  • Lower the refresh rate or set at optimal
  • Check the box 'Hide refresh rates this monitor can't display'
Shutdown, Switch back monitors and try it now.

Good luck
Mike

Signal output of microprocessor up and down (no good) that turn on Q14105 and latch optical isolator U14102 to power the unit but both of ohmed out ok. it hard to troubleshoot the main board with power on.

It sure dosent sound good!! The clicking sound you here are the protection relays to assist in protecting your speakers from blowing out. Your output devices are shorted it sounds like. Do not ever ever attemp to jump out those relays as it will burn out your speakers and possibly burn down your house!. Theres alot of current inthese amps for high power so if your not a tech and you think its worth it take the unit in to be looked at as there are no serviceable user parts inside these units . Sorry to have to tell ya this.. Good Luck
