I'd say it has a mysterious internal problem that would require a hands-on tech to take a look.

Receiver channel volume not identical


Remote controls normally do not adjust stereo volume levels independently, and I will assume that the problem is present on ALL input settings (tuner, CD, etc.). Check "balance" control settings, speakers and speaker wires for possible problems. Balance control at 12:00? Inspecting speaker wires and speakers do not reveal problems? Have you swapped speakers to see if problem reverses? Try this "process of elimination" and hopefully you'll ID the problem.

Sony HCD-GT222 Hi-Fi CD and cassette deck with tuner, suddenly started to shut itself down at volumes higher than 50%, after three years of flawless operation.


It's thermal; protection is happening probably due to bad ventilation. Fuzz and dust can block air vents.These need to be vacuumed out now and then.

Stereo cutting off when volume is over 29


Twenty nine sounds pretty loud to me. A shorted voice coil in any one of your speakers will drop its resistance value so if the amplifier thinks its feeding a short circuit, will "protect" itself by shutting off. Check wiring carefully and each speaker at a little lower volume for sounds of distortion ie: shorted voice coils...

My system shot down during a movie


The reason why your receiver is going in protect is because there is a short circuit happening. This would either be on your speaker wires, speakers or receiver itself. What you want to do to check would be:
1. Unhook all sources and speakers from your receiver.
2. Turn on your receiver and crank up the volume to maximum, if your receiver does not shutdown or go on protect then the receiver is OK. If it does shutdown and go on protect then its an internal problem on the receiver and you would need to send that over to an authorized service center.
3. Hook up a source and 1 speaker. Play something from the source or the fm tuner, Crank Up the volume to about 46 or 47 volume. If the receiver does not shutdown, its good.
4. Hook up a second speaker and repeat the process until you encounter the pop and shut down
if for example you encounter the pop on the 4th speaker, try changing the speaker wires.
5. If the receiver still shuts down then it would be a short on the speaker itself and it would need to go to an authorized service center.

Receiver shuts off when volume raised above 10


A fuse breaker or resetting electronic componet device attaced to the audio receiver protects the amp & speakers for destruction! The quality of the amp ,spkers& spks. wires help on choosing for protection shut downs! Of course at 10 volume you risk all of the amp in the receiver , buy a higher quality brand reciever ,intergrated amp, single amp . BE CAREFUL AT THE HIGHER VOLUME RATINGS YOU RISK HEARING DAMAGE! FOR REAL!

It is set to Cable.

There is no 'sound' of volume bar.

It is almost impossible to get any volume out of the TV sometimes, then it starts blaring.

Piece of junk.
