I'm assuming that you have tried to reset the radio with the button on its side and it didn't work. In that case this isn't a software - or commands - problem that can be fixed with owner commands, it's hardware: the processor of the radio got stuck because its firmware got corrupted.
All you can do is to force a complete reboot: with the radio working disconnect the battery; join the battery pin connectors for an hour to discharge all residual electricity from it (use a small piece of tin foil); plug it back - if the processor is still operational and the firmware chip intact the full reboot will take place and the radio should start functioning correctly. If this doesn't happen then the radio has failed - not worth repairing, just get a new one.

lacking a remote only means that you would have to manipulate its front panel controls to manage it via menus. Determine the manufacturer and model and look for the manual that would explain how to do that. Or just turn the TV on and start hunting through the menus using the navigation controls it probably has.

Or look for a remote:

If you know the model of the device (which you did not mention) try here:



or eBay: search for "(model) remotes", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

No. It has only two amplifier channels and the speaker A and B terminals just share physical access to them for two pairs of speakers. It's not four amps.

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

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.

try swapping the speakers around if the problem still persists either the speaker is faulty or the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good or you might have to clean the dust from your computer dust causes static which causes your computer to overheat and all sorts of problems be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) hope this helps

Some specific makes and models would help us find you the manuals so you could correct the problem yourself. Try retero.com

There's no such thing as plug n play in multichannel digital audio receivers.

Hello Erindennison, Hard to tell, unless we check on several things, like test the speakers on other devices such as MP3 players or other speakers, I'll base my advice on the things you have said, If you plug in the speakers on an AC main and power it on, touch the tip of the input plug and place your ear close to the cone, you should hear a hum, if not a fuse or an open connection may be the cause so need to checked inside the speakers. go find an electronics technician guy to have this checked.

I am going to take a stab at this one because it is interesting and hopefully it will help you. I see there are possible two issues to solve here. Lets do a test,
Connect the Samsung, using the HDMI cable DIRECTLY to the the HDTV. See what happens.
The reason I say this is because the Insignia Receiver is probably at least two years old. There have been several levels of HDMI Standard implemented in the last several years. That leads me to believe that he Samsung menu option signal may not be compatible with your receiver. To clarify this, take a look at the link below. It refers to the different HDMI Standards. 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4. When your receiver was introduced, I believe it complied with the 1.2 HDMI standard.
Hope this helps, Happy New Year, Mark
