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.

I have a RCA 32" Flat Screen TV that shut off and


Hi,


The sound was came from the clicking of the relay. This kind of symptoms is an indication of out-of-regulation condition on the power supply section. This is caused by faulty electrolytic capacitor. It will dropped the supply voltage and will trigger that kind of symptoms.


Faulty electrolytic capacitor mostly has a physical indication of fault like bulged/dome at the top and can be easily identified. See sample picture of faulty electrolytic capacitor below.

capacitor with bulged/dome at the top.


Check these parts on the power supply section. Once found, replaced it with same capacitance and working voltage which is printed on its body itself. Click this LINK for more info regarding electrolytic capacitor.


If you don't have necessary tools and test instrument and can't troubleshoot the unit yourself, I would advice you to look for a qualified TV Technician to isolate the faulty parts.


Hope I helped you.

Have a nice day!

Thanks for using Fixya.

These units aren't made for speaker experimentation. Disconnect all speakers and try again. If it doesn't come on stick a fork in it - it's done.

A hands-on tech might be able to help.

What source(s)? Verify the speaker setup with the test tones to prove the hardware is all okay. Then go back and evaluate the conditions that create the problem. It could be an external cause.

We have everything hooked up to the system all in hd and nothing is working it wont turn anything on


If it won't turn on start with absolutely nothing attached but the power and see if that helps. If it does, crack the manual and add things one at a time.

I have a sanyo hdtv and the dvd home theater system works fine when the dvd is on but when we want to hear it with the tv it doesnt work. What can be the problem?


You would need audio input from either the TV itself (if it uses an antenna) or the actual source of the program you're watching on the Cable/Sat box as applicable. The manual covers both but I recommend the latter.

I have an RCA home theatre...model rt2910. I have hooked my PS3 via HDMI to the TV for the video and used an optical cable for the audio. I set the PS3 to send video via HDMI and audio via optical cable....


You should have the HDMI plugged into the Home theater unit. The theater unit then is attached to the TV using the HDMI out.
The home theater unit passes the HDMI through to the TV while playing the audio for you.
You will likely need to select the correct source on your RT2910.
Here is a link to the manual.

See the section entitled "Connecting to HDMI Components" for an illustration of what I have described above.
