If you bought the extended warranty, you need to go where you purchased it and they can look it up on their computer system. If it's out of warranty, the repair cost is debatable. Between 125-175 average. 50% of the cost.
More than likely, it's not a problem with the receiver. The fastest way to tell is to disconnect all speakers at the back of the receiver and turn it on. If it does not shut down, your receiver is ok and is just protecting itself from damage. If it stays on, check all your wiring, what it sounds like is that you have one or two braids of wire touching the other terminal. Not enough to cause a "short" at turn on, however, when you turn up the volume the resistance increases and creates a short, thus "overload" shows on the receiver. Hope this helps. If you need more help troubleshooting, post a comment and I can help more.
Please update your post with any Model Numbers that you can retrieve, especially the subwoofer. Off hand, and with the limited amount of information that you have provided, I would GUESS that your subwoofer is simply overheating, and is being shutdown internally, hence protecting the fuse because no short is detected. If you haven't moved and or vaccuumed/cleaned around or near your system regularly, dust, pollution, pollen...you name it, builds up and can easily prevent electronics from breeathing/venting properly.
Suzie, your reciver is going into a protection mode. There is a problem with one of your speakers, the wiring, or +with the reciver itself. If you know how to use a multimeter, then you can test the resistance of the speaker, as if one speaker was partally shorted this problem would occor. If you have another set of speakers, try them. If not then you will need to have the reciver bench checked for a fault.
The units in the protect mode because the Microprocessor detects a large current being drawn by the amp. section of the reciver. This is a solid state unit and there are no user replaceable parts inside this unit. Unless you know how to trouble shoot sloid state devices then you should seek a pro to assist you with this repair. GOOD LUCK
there many things that can cause this fault
main reason: the device is in protective mode and wont let anything to happen to the reciver and its components
- the amp is shorted
- its heating up
- short in the voltage regulator
- and many more.....
if its in warranty then fix it
if u understand what i just wrote then open it up and look for the problem
and if neither of these are relevent....
then just take to somebody that does
