My gut tells me we're not talking about a CD player, but instead a dead receiver of some type.

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.

I have a Sony receiver model Str - de 435 it constantly flash Protector and I tried everything to fix this any ideas


The protector indicator usually indicates that one of your amplifiers has shorted output transistors. This is not a user repairable problem and the amp will have to be taken into the shop for service.

Push power protector


If it really says, "Push power protector", there should be a reference to it in your owner's manual. Check there first.

I hace a sony dav-dz120 and shows puesh power protector where is that button ? i doesnt do anything.


Hello
First check the AC power chord is connected securely.
Id 'PROTECTOR' and 'PUSH POWER' alternatevely in the front display panel, Press "power" button to turn OFF the system. And check the following items after "Standby" disappeares.
* Are + and -- speaker cords are short circuted.
* Are you using only specified speakers.
* Is anything blocking the ventilation holes of the system.
After checking above items and fixing any problems, turn ON the system. If the cause of the problem cannot be found even after checking the above items, make sure that something wrong with either its output section, or control section. Consult sony authoried service center, or any experienced technician you know very well. OK.

Radio and CD player both emit a hissing or buzzing noise through the speakers like there is poor reception. However, all the local signals are found and play just fine, just the hiss!


The CD player cannot suffer from poor reception, so if you are having the same hissing / buzzing sound from the Bose system irrespective of the source you have selected , its is coming from the preamp / amplifier section.Also could be coming from the electronic source selector in the preamp section.You will need profession help

Left speaker not working


Some possibilities (your description suggests that both speakers are okay):

- a desoldered pin on the left speaker connector inside your unit or a damaged connector

- a fault or a desoldered contact on one or more components in the left channel's preamp or final amp section, or at the power supply section for that channel, also check speaker protector fuses on the board, if there are any

- a bad connector contact somewhere on the board, possibly an oxydized contact, desoldered pin or a (partially) disconnected/broken wire.

Anyway, these are just a few suggestions, but i hope they can help somewhat...

Cambridge A5 Amp, only one speaker works when phono selected


If both speakers work okay on other inputs .Then cable from pre-amp to amp and main amp are okay. If phone RCA jacks go directly to electronics board .Then its possible solder on phono jacks need to be resoldered or other connections in that section.If unit needs repair you can also purchase a phono preamp from radioshack hook up your and use it on other good inputs such as CD etc..Please note PHONO inputs are only for turntables .If a non turntable input such as CD,TAPE,TV Etc is used on PHONE .Then you will overdrive this input .

Error code - protector


Try disconnecting all the speakers from the back and turn the unit back on. If the "protector" display goes away, turn the unit back off and reconnect one speaker. Turn it back on and check for "protector". Repeat.

If you find that one of the speakers causes "protector" to appear, you either have a bad speaker cable or bad speaker. Try swapping each of those out to see what happens.
