First ensure it is not a disturbance from TV or any nearby device (eg. power adapters).
Generally , if the noise raise up in volume anthen goes it is a faulty amp.
If the problem goes as you whack (gently) or move the unit then it is a bad contact or connector inside.

If you just bought the item I would replace it, even if problem disappears by moving the device or whacking it, it means the machine has a fault that can come back in time.

If product is not brand new, but covered with guaranty take in for repairs.

New Philips Televion dim and flickers


You should return the player because if it is dim and flickering than there is a miss connection in the play. It could also be that your tv is not compatable with that player.

RCA Model RTD317W The standby mode (blue light) is on. But when you try to turn the system on by remote or on front of the theater itself it goes off and does nothing. The only way to get the standby...


Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output 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 hands-on tech.

The unit no longer will turn on.


Amanda,It seems that the power supply unit of your system has gone (gradually). It would be better if you open it up and look for a transformer. Around it you will find some cylindrical objects. These are the capacitors. look for a bulged one. if you can find one, then that needs replacement. If you cant locate one then also the whole power unit would need replacement. If you can not handle the job at hand, then go to a professional.

The sound is getting quieter. I used to comfortably watch TV at around 35 and now I have to have it up around 85 on the volume dial. What should I do?


Both the tv and or cable\satellite box have audio settings. Just changing a single setting can cut the volume half and there are several of them. Yes it is incredibly frustrating. Start with the tv and read any info in the manual and make single adjustments. I would start with the simple ones, (on\off settings), then check the results. If no change, return the setting and go to the next. When you find the optimal settings RECORD THEM!! Good luck

Th-m505 jvc help with no sound


Well i had exactly the same problem, my sub turned off right away when i turned the whole thing on. Well i opened the subwoofer and was trying to find out something unusual, i took out, i believe, internal amp, well, whatever that thing is, under the lid. Which one is screwed with 6 copper screws, so you unscrew those screws, lift that lid and that whole board comes out. On that board i find something like burn around one of the parts.

you can see it in the pick, the part q2902, then i contacted JVC. At the beginning they said i need to take the whole thing to service center and so on. But later i made them to tell me what kind of part that is, so here :http://www.jvcservice.com/store/ProductDetail.asp?Part=KTC3199/GL/-T
bought soldering gun in home depot for $15, returned after i was done. And that is it, just have to replace it, but total cost only $12 ($5 part +$7 shipping)

RT2250 turns itself off


Are you trying to run this unit at 50% or more? I can understand this problem if that's the case. Just turn it down. If you need more "grunt", it's time for more power amping...accordianman

Techies may be right- the only way to find out is to get a cool breeze around the unit- a fan say- whilst in operation.
