I believe he is attempting to tell you that he thinks your Amp is overloaded and that you might have too much hooked up to it. Reducing either the number of speakers you have hooked up to it, or using speakers that demand less power would solve the problem.

That assumes that you are doing something different than you have been doing up to the point the amp began to overheat.

If this is recent and you have not changed anything, check your fans and make sure that all internal fans are still operating.

Sometimes, the fans may be spinning, but not enough to move any air. Check the fans for scratches or peeling edges, which might indicate that the fan housings have taken some damage while the apm is moved from place to place. This could slow the fan down and recude it's effectiveness. Also check for lint buildup or anything else that may have blocked the airways inside the amp if you can open the case and take a look inside.

How do I troubleshoot and repair this amplifier?


simple really : learn electronics theory of operation , obtain schematic drawing of amp and then obtain testing devices , and using your new knowledge follow ckt thru from front to back to find defective parts , then replace them using more equipment
see simple really .
or you could open cover up and just look for the parts that are all burnt and melted over , that works too

Why does my yamaha 15 inch speaker keeps cutting out


I'll bet you have a poor connection to that speaker, someplace along the line, anywhere from the amp to the raw frame speaker inside the box. Let some music play while you jiggle every connection everywhere. When you can make it stop working at will by jiggling something, you've found your fault.

The only other possibility that springs to mind is a fault inside that channel in the amp.

Unit heats up and shuts off. Will not come back on for several minutes. Sometimes plays for awhile and then powers off again.


Unit most likely heats up if not ventalited or..amplifier is overloading due to speaker impedance issues. Start with only Front L and R speaker connected. see what happens. Most new amps however have short circuit protection and cuts out as a safety if speakers are not connected properly or if speakers are loading down the amplifier. the 6.1 is fairly new.. is it still under factory warranty?

Denon AVR-4802R automatically shuts off in multi-zone mode


i had the volume of the multi-zone tuned too high and was attenuating it in an external control box. Once i took the multi-zone volume down to -25db, the problem went way. My main zone was operating around -35db so did not have the problem.

Technics amplifier sound cuts after a few seconds operation


hi there if the sound cuts out after a few seconds and then if you turn it back on again if it does the same you might have a few problems ,,
make sure you are not overloading with to many speakers
make sure all positives are to positive and negatives are to negatives
make sure the unit is not over heating or getting to hot make sure it has room to circulate the hot air
and also check the wiring for any breaks or rips that could be touching each other to make it shutdown
when it cuts out its going into safe mode to prevent further damage one of those will defintly be your problem good luck with it hope this helps

Front speaker channel cut off


I lean toward an overhating condition since the unit does not go into protection mode right away, and then returns.

My thoughts are as follows...

1) The receiver needs better ventilation

2) The speakers are below the rated minimum nominal impedance, causing the amplifier to strain and overheat

3) There is a problem within the amplifier that is causing this problem - this is not user repairable.

I'd try another pair of speakers which are rated at 8 ohm nominal impedance and give it a trial. At the same time, monitor the heat output from the unit (note that modern amplifier sections do run hot). If the unit runs extremely hot at a low volume and still shuts down on 8 ohm speakers, it's time for service or replacement depending on value.
