Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.


Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

My electric went off yesterday and when it went back on my tv wouldnt turn on it was working fine before the power cut we have changed the fuse but still nothing is there anyway i can reset it to make it...


you said you changed the fuse. (inside the tv)double check to see if its blown agian if not. keep it unplugged for about 20 minutes to reset the surge protector onboard . if you have done all that the fuse didnt protect your tv from the surge and it gone. IF ITS CONNECTED TO A SURGE PROTECTOR unplug it from that and plug directly into the wall TRY THAT FIRST let me know if this works.

My tv wont turn on. I have a toshiba regza 47hl167 and when it is in power saver mode it will not turn on have to unplug it and plug it back in till it finally comes on then change the power mode off then...


yes he is right.the digital main pcb is the brain of the tv and has the microprocessor which
controls unplugging the tv and plugging it back in.you are resetting the micriprocessor which is part of the digital pcb.

Amp or Stereo Cutting out...


I agree with what you think it might be. I really think its the deck that is bad and you should be able to take it back for a new one. Have you tried unplugging the RCA cables to the amp to see if that stops it? That would tell you if the amp is backfeeding or doing something weird.

Wrong faceplate on Pioneer DEH-P6900 UB - Now it won't work HELP!!


They might have access to firmware in the unit that is not user serviceable.

I'd try leaving it unplugged overnight first, though, to really test the capacitor reset theory. I think that might work.

Won't turn on


Sullo.
Try to unplug your system for 5 mins and plug it back into the wall. Also if there is a reset button or hole behind the player try sticking a paper clip in that hole while it is still plugged into the wall until the power light goes red or off.

These should reset things on your system
