sounds like your speakers might not match your receiver. check the back of your speakers for the ohms eg 4 , 6 ,8 impedance.
you have to match the specs of the receiver otherwise it cuts out.

HOOKED ALL MY SPEAKERS UP BUT SUB AND CANT GET ANY SOUND FROM FM OR TV THAT I HAVE HOOKED UP AM I MISSING SOMETHING ALSO THERE IS A LIGHT THAT SAYS SOUND MUTE BY FM


From the remote control ONLY:

Press MUTING to mute the sound through all

speakers and headphones connected.

"MUTING" appears on the display and the

volume turns off (the volume level indicator goes

off).

To restore the sound, press MUTING again so that "OFF" appears

on the display.

• Turning MASTER VOLUME on the front panel or pressing
VOLUME +/- on the remote control also restores the sound.

When you turn player on: Screen said "Hello" , then "Protection"


Sounds simple... usually "protection" means that a speaker or a speaker wire is shorted out. Or that the volume is just too damned high... how loud is the receiver's volume setting? If the bass tone control is jacked and the loudness button is on, even with no shorted wires, the amp can go into protection from an internal overdrive. Might be that you just need to do like your mom says and turn it down!
If you have an ohmmeter, speaker or wiring problems are easy to test, if you don't, you can still do it all mechanically... here's how
Turn off the receiver and start by disconnecting your speaker wires at the back of the receiver. With all of the speaker wires removed, does the thing still go into protection when you turn it back on?
If not, good. If it does, find a service center.
Re-connect the speakers to the appropriate terminals one speaker at a time, turning off the receiver each time you make a connection. After connecting one speaker, turn the receiver on and see if it shuts down. If not, then turn it off and add one more speaker.
Do this until you find the culprit. Leave that suspected bad speaker's wires disconnected from the receiver and test all the rest, connecting all but the bad wires.
Now, disconnect the speaker from the other end of the bad wires and spread the bare wires apart so they don't short out. Connect the wires ONLY at the amplifier end and turn the amp back on. Protection?
If yes, the wire is shorted out somewhere. got cats?? If everything is OK, turn off the receiver and reconnect the speaker and test again. Make sure the wires aren't shorted at the back of the speaker. You really need to check all the speakers to make sure their connections are "clean" and make sure that there are no stray wire strands anywhere or that the wires aren't stripped too much so they might be able to short out. After the wires are connected to either a speaker or an amplifier, you shouldn't be able top see much of any bare wire, but you already know that, right?
Some folks strip way too much off the wire and the wires simply touch the wrong things and ... badness happens.
If all the connections are clean and the receiver still shuts down when this speaker is connected and the receiver is turned on, swap a working speaker onto these wires, leaving the suspect speaker disconnected and making sure the other bare wires won't touch anything or each other.
Back on with the working speaker... good? If so, then we're determining that the problem is probably in that one speaker. If not, then we have a deeper problem.
Reconnect the suspect speaker to the other wires and try again. Good? Then you have "fixed" the problem by cleaning up the wiring connections. If it shuts down again, then you need to fix or replace the bad speaker.
If everything works now with the volume down and such, then just use a little self control. If it's still messed up, you may need a trip to the service shop
Good Luck

Regarding a Yamaha RX-V757 receiver, if I have my volume set above approximately -28, whether I'm playing a DVD or listening to a music CD, the units power shutsoff. When I turn it back on the display says...


Try turning up the volume with just the FM selected (and tuned to a station). If you can adjust the volume to an appreciably higher level when simply tuning in a radio station, then your CD/DVD player may be outputting a signal with a DC offset, which is getting amplified when you turn up the volume, and past a certain point the protection circuitry is sensing too much DC being sent to the speakers and shuts the unit down. If the unit is getting hot, there is likely an internal problem, or you have a shorted speaker wire, or even a bad speaker. Replace the speaker wires as a test, and you can also run the unit with only one speaker connected at a time to see if any are the source of your problem.
Yes, it's possible that there's nothing wrong with the wires or the speakers, and the unit simply needs a trip to the shop, but it's your job to rule out the easy stuff before you pack it up and take it in.

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.

Sirius question


Yes it should be very easy with use of the ear phone jack - depending on the model of course but generally all you need is an ac/dc power supply, the antenna connection, and for connection to receiver you can connect via FM or hard wire.
FM: as in your car pick an FM station frequency that is clear (no station on it) lets say 88.1 then set your home receiver on 88.1 and there you have it.
DIRECT: purchase a stereo 3.5mm headphone cable with two RCA male plugs at the other end. A faily common cable found in dollar stores or for five times the price at Walmart/Radio Shack etc.. Plug the 3.5mm plug into the 'headpone' jack of the satellite radio and the RCA plugs into the rear of your home receiver - usually a 'aux/line in plug" or "tape in" plug then turn the knob on the receiver to "aux or tape" selector. Bingo you should hear satellite radio all over the house....if the volume is UP! Take care Frank

When volume is turned up the radio shuts off


Have you checked all of the connections on the speakers, stereo, etc. Being a marine CD player, the wires and connectors are exposed to more elements than a car CD unit. Check for corrosion and make sure that all the speakers are hooked up to the correct "+" and "-" terminals. Not sure if this will help, but thought I'd try. It does sound like a speaker connection problem.

Overload Problem


If your rec'vr worked with the original front and rear speakers, the new speakers are either defective or ar the wrong impedance.
Also, I find this confusing: "I connected the wiring for 1 of the front speakers to the connection on the rear of the receiver". This may indicate wrong wiring connection. Make sure you have connected the speakers properly
