Two separate issues:

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.

When raising volume deck cuts-off


Sounds like an overheating issue. Most car receivers have heat sinks at the rear to dissipate heat, but if there is little or no rear clearance for the unit the heat may build up and the unit goes into a self protection mode and shuts down.

Tip

Adjusting your gain for your amplifier, or amplifiers


I contacted JBL, and Pioneer about the RCA outputs of the DEH-P5800MP. I got a question answered by JBL that you should gain your amplifier, or amplifiers at half of the Head Units volume, in which case the 5800 model has a max volume of 62. I would assume that this goes for any unit since I didn't give JBL the model or brand, which indicates that they are giving a tip on every, or most units unless specified. You can e-mail the manufacture on what unit you have just in case yours is different. I found after a good conversation with the technical support guy at Pioneer that you should turn your volume up to 25-30 (25 for your loudest CD, and gain it from there. I told him that I was an audiophile and he suggested that I could gain it at 45 for my lowest recorded CD. I have been installing and gaining systems at 3/4 volume, or if the max volume was 62 then I would gain my lowest recorded digital CD at that volume. I was amazed that JBL had an answer for probably 90% of the head units, and I have learned something new. I was under the assumption that the higher the volume the more voltage the RCA's put out allowing you to be able to have your amp gain at a lower level. From my experience of 12 years, hearing both companies say roughly the same thing it is apparent that Pioneer units with a 2 volt output should be gained at the 25-30 volume range(probably for your lowest recorded CD. I have CD's that are pure digital and bass CD's and CD's that are recorded louder (like techno music, or alternative music) If you know what you are doing, and can hear distortion, like I can, the tech said that I could gain it at 45 for the lowest recorded CD. This allows your lowest recorded CD to be played at max volume at 30-45, and your loudest CD's would be at peak volume before 30, or 45 if you choose that route. Keep in mind that less power blows speakers before more power does. That is the best advice I can give, and I will adjust my system accordingly to there recommendations. Thank you

I just burend a audio cd but it wont play on my cd player


Hi,

Just a tip.
You can try to burn an CD at a lower speed.
So the index will be deeper and better readable for a normal CD-player.

The volume control does not go up or down when I turn the knob. I have to play around with it and sometimes it works and other times it dosen't.


On volume control potentiometer carbon layer wears out with time. The easiest way would be to clean it with spirit. Turn off the unit, remove the knob, spray spirit on volume control then turn the knob back and forth around a minute, should work after. Also you can disassemble CD player and resolder pot contacts on the board, when pressure constantly applied from outside, contacts get loosen. And the best way will be to replace the pot.

JVC Car stereo with cd shuts off when volume is turned up


Hi Ithink , you are trying to push too much power to your speaker setup. Your cd, tuner, player, is only go as loud as the volume at half way setting. Your speakers are , probally good ones that want more power, and making your player overheat and making circut protection cut power. I would say, you should use it at 15, and that is as loud as it should be played to aviod distortion and overheating.
I'm guessing max is like 25 or 30, Is that so? You can listen to louder tunes by installing an amplifier. Or if you have an amp in your system it may be overheating, I would really like you to let me know if you have been trying use it at volume higher than half the maxium volume setting, so I know I helped, and you can start looking into power amp's. You can crank it up for good parts, but most players were not made to send alot of juice to good big speakers at high volume level.
Tell me what you think, tooldoc

Hi , I just brought a KD-G646 head unit and it wont play cd's at all. The radio works fine, but the usb only works if the unit is turned down. Could i have something wired wrong or is the unit faulty. It...


well, the USB problem i cant help you with, but if the cd isnt loading, theres probably something wrong with the loading mechanism, which usually means that the unit is faulty. it would be more cost efficient to buy a new head unit than to pay someone for the parts and labor to repair the one you have.

Sound cut-out


Most likely this unit goes into protect mode due to heat detection. Try to see if there is a pattern to when this behavior starts. Does a lower volume level allow the unit to run longer? Perhaps there is a problem internally that is allowing DC voltage to get to the output stage. This will cause excessive heat which can then cause the protection circuit to kick in. This unit may need to see a bench with some test gear to locate the exact problem. If you can, look for any pattern and update this.

Composite audio input plays quietly


4 longshots to try, in case you haven't allready: 1. try connecting using a different cable 2. what are you trying to connect to the VCR out? note that CD players(other personal players as well) have a headphone jack and a line out jack, and you dont allways get the same vulume output from them. 3. in case you do have it connected to the line out, try connecting a different device, because some players have lower volume levels than others, which bring me to 4. some players have a setting that lowers volume level in order to protect your hearing when using headphones. you might have to disable that. I never ran across any receiver that let you adjust volume levels of individual outs, but it might be possible that a part needs replacement, or to get amped up, have more power directed to it. consult a service man. offcourse if you're still under warranty use it, go complain... Good luck!
