You may have a shorted speaker wire. unhook all the speakers and test each speaker by using a 9 volt battery across the speaker wires, you should hear a pop (this will not hurt your speakers). in each speaker. if you don't hear the pop then you may have found the one that is shorted. Another thing you can try is to unhook all the speakers and trun on the system (briefly) and see if the message is gone, this being further indication that you have a shorted speaker wire.

My surround sound sony 7.2 ampli audio turns off when i turn it up

try checking if all the speaker cables are connected in polarity ( all + to + and all - to -
make sure that the speakers u have connected are not below the amplifier manufacturer specs and that that they all have the same OHM load (check back of speakers to see the (OHMs)
lastly, check each speaker individually to determine that they are all working and working with no distortion. ( a malfunctioning speaker could cause the amp to go into protection.
if there are any more details that you did not state please do so.

Is yamaha ampli rip off ?

I have not personnally had any problems with any yamaha recievers, or surround processors that I have ever purchased, and they continue to operate these decades later. The fact that they have pre-amp outputs for all channels was a major determining factor, as I could then use other amps with more power for expansion. make sure you have a surge protector for your ac power supply, that has been the biggest source of problems with any piece of a/v equipment

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

When I turn on the player...the "PROTECT" message comes up... I would like to know how to start this player...or how to bypass this message so it pplays. Hope somebody out there knows the...

protect means that the speakers are improperly hooked up or just not compatible with the amp.

ensure that the speakers are 8-16 ohms, that no wires are crossed, and no wire strands are loose, which could touch and short. a 4 ohm speaker or a short in the wiring is almost always the cause of a protect error.

if all of this is checked, and it still says "protect" then it is fried.

Mini-DV tapes have a small physical switch on them to protect the contents from being overwritten. It is probably just that this switch is set, not a problem with the camera.

Car Ampli Problem

forget hooking this on a subwoofer. this amp produces only 50 watts per channel at 4ohms or 70 watts per channel at 2 ohms RMS...
If you try bridging the sub, it will only give out maybe 100watts bridged.
So..... if your sub is, lets say 1000watts RMS, youre just going to bust your amplifier to smoke...
Find a more decent and powerful amp. This amp is only intended for separates and lowend subs with an RMS of 80 to 150 watts
