Hi,

If it is a new installation, it is possible that the trigger wire has not been installed or is not getting its trigger from the head unit. The trigger wire is used to turn on the unit aside from the B+12 and the ground wire. It may also be helpful to double check tight connections of the power wires.

If the unit has been in operation before and just quit recently, then it is possible for the unit to have a defect such as a blown fuse or an internal problem with its electronics. This of course would require that you be familiar with electronics circuitry and components, the use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Should a DIY be not to your liking, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a ken wood kr-797 stereo receiver but I can get sound but it's very low and I have to have the volume set at 0db in order to hear anything. It's like this on all inputs


I suspect that the pre-amp stage in you amp has failed. What you are hearing is the power amp on full volume. But with no pre-amp to boost the signal it's to low.
What we do know is that the sound is going into the pre-amp and out for you to hear it. This could mean that the power to the pre-amp stage is low, but still present.
Pre-amps these days mostly consist of a single IC. That could have failed, or it is not getting power. Since it would be possible to test the voltages to the IC, one pin should have something on it to the region of 6 to say 20 volts going into it. If the IC has that going to it, it has failed. If the voltages to all the pins are low, then you have a power problem.

Harman Kardon AVR 7500 Does not power up and can't find fuses!!!


Honestly, if you are talking about the speaker protection relay, the relay and associated circuits rarely go bad but instead respond to problems elsewhere in the amp. Anything from defective speakers, bad spkr. wiring to output transistors will cause this protection relay to not energize thus protecting the output stages and speakers.

Sony home theater model no hcd-dz570 push power protect error on display what,s solution?


Check the speaker connection. One of them has a shortcircuit. Try to disconect all of them and power on the device. See what is happen. If starts corectly check the speaker cable. Conect one by one and power up the receiver after each connection. When you get the error again check the last conected cable. These receivers have a protection system against shortcircuits. That is puting your device in that error.

Yamaha R-840, It has a flashing power led on the front, but wont turn on or off or do anything


This problem could be caused by leaky or open capacitors in the power supply circuit. Known problems in this unit. Look on the power supply board near the connections that would go to the amplifier or pre amp boards. This would be the secondary of the power supply. Look for bulged tops of the capacitors. Is a good start.

Amp turns of after 2 seconds of turning on


It is going into protection mode, and shutting itself off. You have a short somewhere. I would suggest taking it to an authorized service center for assistance. This is not easy to diagnose, as it could be anything causing the short.

Try disconnecting everything from the unit, including the speakers, and turning on again. This will just confirm that the problem is the amp, and nothing external. Also, try connecting it to a different power supply/socket.

Overload flashs


there will be 6 amp circuit in your receiver. you can't unplug them one by one. with a multi-meter you may be able to find the shorted channel. (most JVC receivers use discrete circuits instead of an output IC) Check for shorted transistors attached to the heat sink. You will possibly find some open resistors also. Generally this is a job for a pro.

How to install Rockford Fosgate 3sixty.1 to a Toyota factroy head unit?


You will need a line level adaptor to get an audio input for the amp.

A line level adaptor is a device that lets you tap off of your speaker outputs of the radio and it converts that signal into the proper level for an RCA input signal the amplifier uses.

If you are installing the amp in the trunk of the car you can just tap off the speaker outputs of the rear speakers mounted in the trunk. Keep the speaker outputs connected to the speakers, just run an extra set of wires from them to the line level adaptor. It will not take anything away from the speakers sound because it is not a power drain on them.

After that, you just connect the power wires for the amp as you would normally and you also need to run an extra wire from the radio power antenna wire to the remote turn on of the amp, or you can use a wire directly from the battery and connect it thru a switch you would need to connect somewhere around the dash, so you can turn the amp on and off when you need to. The power antenna wire from the radio is best, so you don't need to turn the amp on and off manually. It is easy to forget about turning it off sometimes and that would run doen your battery if the amp is left on over night even with no signal going thru it.

Then connect your speakers to the amp and thats it.

Then big issue is getting an audio signal to the amp and the turn on signal for the amp.

If you need more help let me know,

Dave

I hooked two Receivers up in series a Technics SA-DX930 and a different kind I'm not sure wut kind. They worked great for a while, but when they got turned up a little louder they both quit puting out...


you blew your power amp board, you cannot hook them in series due to impediance matching and improper input levels, cheaper to replace reciever than the board
