Could be caused by a circuit protection design built into your system. If you are playing your system at to high a level you could be over driving the amp, in order to protect the amp from frying, it has a circuit built into the design that shuts it down when it reaches a point where it could be damaged.
Does the unit do this at all volume levels??

    First thing I would try is cleaning the CD lens, this could be the problem.. If the lens is dirty then the cd will try to read the disk over and over until it get the information needed to play the music...
    You can get a CD Lens cleaner at any major store like Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart, Best Buy, Circuit City, Radio Shack etc... It is a common item and easy to use...
    It is a a CD With a brush they wipes across the lens and cleans off the dust..

    If you still have a problem, then it could be a defective CD Player in your system..

    If it is a home unit, it should have an Aux input. If so, then you should be able to add a DVD player and use it to play CD's too, so you don't need to scrap the entire unit. Heck a simple little DVD player these days can be picked up for about $30.00, it also will Read MP3's increasing the amount of music you can store per disk for several hours of music on a single CD.. It's cheaper to add the external unit than to take it to a repair center

I have a Onkyo TXSR-574 Receiver. After playing for a period of time (its never consistent) the receiver will cut off. You can cut it back on and it will play about two seconds and cut off again. It's...

The amp is protecting itself from something either real or perceived by the protection circuitry.
Check your speaker impedances to make sure they are all what they are supposed to be (IE, 4 or 6 or 8 ohms depending on the speakers and arrangement).
Feel the amp to see if it's warmer than it should be - blow any dust out of the heatsinks.
when it cuts off, try spraying freeze mist on the components until it turns back on and behaves - accurate use of freeze mist can diagnose a thermal problem easily.
Look for bulging or leaking capacitors anywhere in the circuity.
Failing that, it'll have to go into a shop.

It sounds like overheating is making it go into protection mode. It fails, cools off, starts up again. make sure it has proper ventilation and you're not pushing it too hard (loud).

My amp keeps going in and out of protect mode every few seconds it cuts off and then it will cut back on and so forth

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Your amp is probably OK. The volume is either set to high or the speaker load is to low of an impedance. Remember 2, 8 ohm speakers connected is the same as 1, 4 ohm speaker. Another possibility is that you do not have enough battery power coming to the amp itself. A simple rule I use is take the watts and divide by ten, that will give you an approximation of the amps needed on a 12 volt system. This takes into account some of the losses in the amp, but it is only an approximation. For example 300 watts RMS is 30 amps, which will require a number 8 wire to keep the losses at a minimum. You can check wire drops on the web.

Good Luck,

Home Theatre system goes into MUTE mode while film playing

Sounds like your system is going into a safe mode. This happens when you have a neg/pos reversed hooked up, or your wires are touching. This feature prevents you from blowing up your amp. Check your wires, and make sure the positive is hooked to positive etc. and make sure no bare wires are touching.

Outside bose speakers keep turning off after a few seconds

It sounds like the speakers are either peaking and shutting down or they are dodgy. Check the volume going into the speakers and turn it down see if that works, otherwise take the speakers back. It might be worth trying a different set of speakers as well

Speakers All Cut out Including Sub When Music is Played Loud


1. Please ensure that the all the connections between the satellite speakers and the subwoofer are firmly connected.
2. Next, please connect the green colored 3.5mm audio jack to another audio device such as an iPod or an MP3 player.
3. Ensure that the SoundTouch remote control is firmly connected to the back of the subwoofer.
4. Connect the power cord from the subwoofer and connect it to another single power outlet in your house. If you have an automated voltage regulator (AVR), please connect the power cord through the AVR instead of connecting it directly to a power outlet in your house.
5. Power up the speaker system and check whether the power button on the SoundTouch remote control will light up.
6. Turn on the Matrix Mode ON. This option is on the SoundTouch remote control. This is to ensure all speakers from the speaker system will produce audio that will be played from the audio device.
7. Play audio from the audio device. Check and see whether the all the speakers will produce audio being played from the audio device.
