PRESS POWER PROTECTOR

While watching TV, the sound "popped" off the speakers and 'PRESS POWER PROTECTOR" flashed across DVD component. Have tried the various troubleshooting options suggested in the manual, but still no sound thru speakers (brief sound bits in beginning when turn power back on each time and then silenced each time by the "popping off" of the sound. Still have picture.) Am giving up for now. Will try again tomorrow. Any other suggestions/solutions would be greatly appreciated.

    ** PUSH POWER PROTECTOR **

    I mistyped----my title & comment should read "PUSH POWER PROTECTOR" instead of PRESS. Sorry. Corrected version is below:

When I got back I plugged everything in and tried to listen to the surround sound but the 'PUSH POWER PROTECTOR" flashed across DVD component. Have tried the various troubleshooting options suggested in the manual, but still no sound thru speakers (brief sound bits in beginning when turn power back on each time and then silenced each time by the "popping off" of the sound.

SOURCE: Please help with getting 5.1 sound from my TV!

You must run a Digital Optical cable from your PS3 to your reciever. Then press your function button on your recievers remote until you see SAT/CABLE on your recievers display. Next go to your PS3 settings and go to Sound settings, then Audio Output settings, and select Digital out (OPTICAL) then your done. This is the only way to get true digital sound from your PS3 to your reciever.

SOURCE: Push Power Protector

I had the same. It was caused by the speaking wire ends touching the unit. I was just setting it up and had not fully connected everything. They were just loose. In general i think the message is trying to say check the power or check all your cables for short circuts.

SOURCE: No sound from TV thru sony bravia hdx576wf; DVD & CD audio ok.

Could be a sync calibration issue. Try to divert the TV sound to another input source on the Hometheatre system if possible, if it is a go then maybe the TV audio needs to be recalibrated. Make sure TV audio setup menu option has not changed also.

SOURCE: TV sound only thru front and sub woofer speakers only

this might be happening because the audio format for surround is not supported by the channel or affiliate of the channel that you are viewing does this happen on all tv channels or is it on just a few? if all sound while playing a dvd is proper and in working order than there must be an issue with the sound and or format of sound from the tv source. maybe more information would help me decipher this

anyways hope it helps

Every once in a while the sound goes out and comes back if i watch a movie or regular tv how do i fixit


Most recievers had setting for TV/Stereo/CD/ DVD

Also the various sound settings, such as Concert / Hall / Dolby etc...

Assuming your wires are all hooked up correctly and reverse polarity (popping noise heard) is not the problem. I doubt that you need to resolder any connections inside the reciever or speakers. (That may be a problem, but not likely in this situation)

What may be happening here is that some things are simply not recorded in surround... Then it will sound just like you've described. sound going in and out. Sometimes the engineer skipped a track, you know, left for lunch and when he came back, didnt start back where he finished before he left...

However, lets say for example your watching a TV movie of the week, and those speakers may appear to be working while the movie is on but not during a commercial, since most commercials are not recorded in Full Surround Sound... this is normal.

However, if happening during the Movie, from scene to scene, also possibly a normal thing if the sound engineer had nothing to add for background noise, ie; rustling leaves, creaking floorboard etc...

Sometimes you may hear background sound out of a left speaker and not the right, (or vis'a-vers'a) this is of course due to placement of object or subject of background noise... if Any

9 times out of 10, it may not be your system at all. If your watching a DVD and this is happening, you could make a note of when and where and try another copy to see if this system can be replicated at this same location. You may be able to use a CD and find out also.


Hopefully you'll find some help in this.

When playing DVD, it's sometimes display 'PROTECT' and stop playing.


Check if you receive the error when playing any DVD in particular.

What happens when you take out the DVD and try playing it again? Does it play

This protector error denotes several possible problems. Heat, volume level and incorrect DVD settings may be the cause of the problem. The following steps will help you correct your problem and rid your amp of its "Protector" error.

  • Examine your volume setting to be certain that your volume knob is not at maximum. Having your volume cranked too high can cause the capacitors to overheat, shutting down the receiver.
  • Unplug your receiver and disconnect your speakers from the terminals on the back. This will allow you to determine if the error is internal. Plug your receiver back in and look for the same error message. If you continue to get the protector error without having your speakers connected, you may have an internal electrical problem. In this case, contact Sony about finding a repair center.
  • Reconnect your speakers one at a time. The order of connection doesn't matter. When reconnecting, be sure that you do not have your positive and negative speaker wires crossed in any way. After each connection, test your amp by running it with a source. Give each speaker a few minutes of power before connecting the next one. This will help you isolate which speaker terminal is causing the error. When the protector error returns, take note of which speaker connection caused it. Check this speaker wire for shorts or torn shielding.
  • Examine your ohm rating of your speakers if you have no shorts or wiring issues. Sony receivers are not compatible with speakers lower than 4 ohms. Connecting a lower ohm-rated speaker will cause an error.
  • Turn off the surround sound option if you have both your A and B position speakers in use.
  • Keep your receiver well ventilated. Overheating due to poor ventilation can also cause Protector errors.
  • Examine the sampling frequency of your connected DVD player. If the error only occurs when you watch a DVD, the sampling frequency of the DVD player may be set too high. Check the sampling rating in your receiver's manual and in the DVD player

I have no surround sound when watching normal T.V


Hi there, in order to listen to t.v you need to purchase an optical cable and plug this in the optical out of the tv to the optical in on the blue ray then select D.IN.1 on the blue ray and press mode on the remote until it says matrix . This will allow you to listen to the t.v through all speakers. hope this helps. Also remember to take the rubber protectors off the ends of the optical cable, a lot of people forget this :)

Surround on my system


Have you tried what I said and changed the settings in the DVD?
Also, is it a built in DVD player / TV combo, or a separate unit? You can try doing a hard reset..Unplug the TV from the mains, disconnect all cables from tv and wait for 1 hour. Then press the power button on TV and plug in the mains. Same if your DVD player is stand alone.
Try that and let me know..

Watching T.V. with speakers


Component 1 on the TV is probably an input, not an audio output. You need to find out if your TV has audio output jacks.
If I'm mistaken, and you are using audio output jacks from the TV, then you just need to press FUNCTION on your remote until the LCD display says "TV/VCR".
