Can be that the CD disc is jumping on vibration, the optical head is defective and not reading the tracks or if the line to the amplifier is having a loose connection in the wires or within the RCA jack socket.
Play Cd when car is in stop , if in motion check the wiring and CD for errros.
if interuption always from the disc then the optical head can be faulty

    Thanks but the problem is not the CD player. I just bought the preamp on Ebay I suspect it was sold possibly because it wasn't working 100%?

    Just wondering if anybody else had a similar problem with the NAD C162

Subwoofer channel no longer has output

Is your sub powered (amplifier built-in)? If so, connect your MP3 player directly to the sub input and see if you hear audio. If you do hear audio, check for cable problems from Panasonic to sub input. If the sub is unpowered then it's either the speaker wiring, an intermittent sub and/or your Panasonic at fault.

GP Furuno 7000 sounder not powering up

Be sure to check your input DC voltage all the way to the unit itself. The intermittent condition you described sounds like a bad connection outside of the unit itself. Once you confirm that you have good 12 or 24vdc input to the plotter and it still won't power on, there is an internal 4amp fuse you can check. Proceed with caution if you decide to open the unit yourself.

The sound on my mg100hdfx cuts out sometimes then its fine what could this be

Common problems are broken or intermittent input jacks or cracked circuit board or soldering or broken volume controls. Another one is a bad switch contact on the jack for PA input connection. All these are internal and require servicing.

External problems are guitar and cable problems.

Cd player buzz

It's not your CD making the noise, thats a buzz from a motorized device or other electronic item placed too close to your speakers or audio input cable. Automatic CD cleaners are notorious for making this noise, and are often placed near the PC.

Sounds like you have intermittent contact between the constant 12v and the ACC 12v power inputs. Remove the head unit, and make sure that the connections are properly insulated. (using inline **** connectors preferably)

Sound cuts out

If you listen to cd's and the sound dos'ent cut out then it cant be the amp. It could be the audio cables are intermittant between the amp and the dvd playerr or they are loose or corroded a little. or ppossible the input your using is going bad on the stereo sytem but I wouldnt think that the whole system was blown if the radio and the cd plays normal.. check out the causes I listed and let us know if you need more assistance\..:)
