Ohms law can be applied here . When applying Ohms circuits are taken as perfect with no additional deviations to values introduced by connections or temperature, so although not exactly correct it is a very good guide. Almost all electical calcs can be done with Ohms law and its variations.

V(volts) = I(current) x R (resistance)

I x R =5000
so V =5000

Answer is 5000 Volts

Hi I brought sr8001 receiver I had connected the same to all speakers I connected to Homi cable then i switched on the amp, from left side of amp there was some burn smell was cmg. Just I had switched off....

It sounds like you may have damage to the capacitors, fuses, or other printed board circuitry.

What type of voltage (current) was this system plugged into? 110 Volts or 220?

Hello i have a samsung AH64-04012C home cinema. Now it gives HELLO PROTECT can you help me with this problem?

Protect mode on any amplifier is a safeguard to stop too much current from being draw by either the power supply or by the power amplifier. Please disconnect all speaker outputs and turn the unit back on. If the protection does not turn on you may have either a shorted speaker or damaged speaker wire that is causing the load on the power amp to be too low which causes much more current to be drawn from the power supply. If the power supply itself is bad you could be in some trouble if you cannot troubleshoot down to board level. Most power supplies in home theaters today are switching supplies. They employ what is called a PWM or pulse width modulation scheme. This supply compared to that of a standard transformer and rectifier setup is much more efficient but at the same time is much more complicated. The AC input voltage switched on and off by a given duty cycle generated from a frequency reference inside the PWM. The power mosfets are what supply the high DC current to the power amplifier. If one of these MOSFETs is damaged it will also give you a protection error.

Sony STRDH800 emits a loud humming noise cuming throu speakers as soon i switched on and after 3 minuts av reciver switched off byself and blinking protected......plz help

It is possible that the amplifier had encountered a fault with a higher current drain which had triggered it to a protection fault condition. The fault can be your output drivers- the MOSFETS/IC's fitted for both the channels, Use a meter after disconnecting to check for short in the drivers. Disconnect the positive and negative voltages to the output and see if the protect changes. Even a fault in the preamp stages that drives in high current into the output can shut the Amplifier. Sometimes this can be a noise like a HUM or HISS before the protect works. Faulty capacitors in these circuits also can cause similar issues and needs close observation.
You need to confirm and replace the specific stages or outputs. If not there can be issues in the mother board, maybe the protect circuit by itself is shutting off due to a faulty bias , maybe a leak in any voltage/current sensing circuit. Also disconnect the speakers and test, if the protect is off then check for short on the speakers.

Naka 700ZXL- Intermittent Problem: After turning on the deck and at the same time the reel motor turns to eliminate tape slack one or more of the 15 lamps on the RAMM indicator panel turn on. If you...

from what is described of the lamps and the RAMM indicator the the negative 4.5 volt supply and the sometimes double spiked signal sound as though you have a weak regulator component or a voltage control circuit with a bad or weak component that needs replacement.
1. check electrolytic caps
2. all diodes/ resistance > all dropped/ no voltage in the voltage controlled circuit
3. trace voltage and current back to source to see if the supply is correct.\
If this is intermittent it means that a component or several components are growing weak and need replacement
4. a schematic for the unit is very helpful in isolating circuit component failure.

How much can you sell 2 of the following? I need to replace 2-100 ohm 2 watts resistors in my Kustom Profile_one unit. You recommended replacing with 2-130 ohm 2 watt metal oxide resistors. Currently one...

It sounds awfully like the resistors are close to breakdown voltage, I would Suggest that you do replace them with the resistors specified, because using anything else in a high voltage product is a fire risk, now who was it that suggested replacing them with higher ohm resistors? was it a service tech or was that right out of a manual or was if from the manufacturer themselves?
Anything to do with resistor replacement, as yo sound like you know, should be taken very carefully, because if you use the wrong resistors, you risk losing the components after the resister due to a higher voltage or sometimes even causing them to stop working due to a lack of current...
Be very careful and please go back to the manufacturer to get the exact resistors quoted from them and make sure you have it in writing from them so that if something fails you have at least done what you could.
Hope this helps, need any more advice, just ask!
***Please remember that advice on electrical appliances needs to be made by a licensed technician that had experience with that specific product otherwise you risk voiding the warranty or sometimes even risk your own life when concerning high voltage products***

Reciever shut off AND WILL NOT TURN BACK ON

Sounds like it could be a major problem. But...It could be as simple as a fuse.

Do you know how to use an Ohm Meter or a Multi Meter??

If not, there is still something you can check, if you feel comfortable taking the thing apart.

1. Power it down.
2. Open it up, and look for blown fuses.
3. You can't always tell by looking...especially if the are "Slow-Blow" fuses.
4. If you know how to use a multi meter, you can check the fuses in place.
4a. You have to turn it on.
4b. Put your multi meter on VAC. Put the probes on both sides of a fuse. If you measure no voltage the fuse is good. If it measures voltage, the fuse is bad. (I know it sounds backwards, but a meter only measures the difference between voltages, and a good fuse will have the same voltage on both sides, hence no voltage)
4c. Replace bad fuses.

5. If you are uncomfortable with the powered on method, you can remove the fuses, ONE AT A TIME, (so you don't get pun intended), with POWER OFF. A fuse puller is a useful tool. If you don't have one, BE CAREFUL!
5a. Put your multi meter on Ohms. Measure resistance across the fuses. If resistance is real low (like less than 4 ohms), the fuses are good. If the resistance is high (like 1k to infinity), the fuse is bad.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck!

Sony ICF SW55 always OFF

I have the same radio.

It was given to me not working
I took it apart.
Was surprised about the contacts not being soldered
After re assembly and with new AA nicads it started.

First it would take clock and then go off
losing clock settings.
then it comes on and starts fro factory CAL menu.
after repeating many times now coming on with all functions
volume not great
sensitivity/signal strength good
Now after recharging batteries stays on and last longer.

It appears that resistance/poor contact with circuit board of battery connections causes l;oss of voltage.

Suggest follow these steps cleaning with solution and may be also re tensioning contact contact areas.


good luck
