Question about Aiwa AV-D97 Receiver

1 Answer

Keeps shutting off

Okay, I admit, we do have a lot hooked up to our system; but we do our best to keep the receiver well-ventilated. It started every once in a while...just shutting off....especially when I'd turn the volume up. Now, It shuts off almost immediately, even with the vol. all the way down! HELP PLEASE! I can't afford a new system!

    I have the same problem too. I tried resetting the unit by pressing the enter and power button at the same time but no luck. All i get is the click to turn on and click when it automatically shuts off. The display lights come on, on the first click but it shuts off immediately. Also when i press the enter button when the unit is off, It will shut off very quickly so i cant even set the time.

Are you able to check whether any of your speakers may have been blown? or have a direct short to ground ..this usually indicated by the amplifier protecting itself and shutting down,, try un plugging one speaker at a time and you may find that it is one of the speakers ....then get a replacement or get it repaired

How do I get this system working properly again?

Here's what I would do:

1) Wherever you get sound, hook up each speaker in turn to validate they are working. If you have another, known working system to do this with, even better.

2) While testing your speakers on the known good system, once a speaker has been proven working, validate that your sound source (and cable) is working by using it as a source once everything else has been validated.

3) Now that you've isolated and proven everything but the receiver, put the receiver in stereo mode and try it out as a simple left/right amp. Once you get this far you will be able to do the surround stuff, but only with a surround encoded (ex: AC3) data stream.

If you need more help, just ask.

The unit overheated and stopped working

Let it sit out for a while to avoid any heat damage. It should work once again once it has cooled this is a security for the PS3 to protect the internal components. To avoid overheating place PS3 in a well ventilated place where it can get a steady flow of cool air. Do not place it on carpet or any other surface that might insulate the system. Try to reduce play time take a break once in a while. If you would like longer game time buy an air cooler that hooks up to the PS3 and increases airflow and keeps it cooler longer.

Protect circuit activated........where to look for defects?

Typically a shorted speaker output. CHeck where your speaker wires are and see if there's just one wisker of wire touching the adjacent terminal. Check the back of the amp (easier said than done) and then check the back of the speakers themselves. Second most common issue is overheating. People leave an LP covering the ventilation openings on top of the amp and wonder why it overheats, so make sure you have air ventilation. Speaker wiring, then ventilation. Unplug unit, plug back in again, and power on and see if your problem goes away; if not, come back and we'll see what else we can try for you - okay?

I have a samsung ht-tx75 and it keeps shutting down every 10 minutes saying protection.the fan is working

Protection is very likely caused by an over heat condition, even with the fan working if the receiver is in a very enclosed place that warms up and is not ventilated it will cause the problem. The solution is to provide more ventilation so that the receiver can cool itself properly.

Lots of components , need proper hook-up

I reccomend a Denon AVR-2809. It had 4 HDMI inputs, all 1.3a and higher, and one HDMI out for your TV!

Dish ViP622 keeps crashing - on 6th unit from Dish network

the 622 receivers are very sensitive to static electricity build up, if you have been through more than two receivers i would demand having a technician come to your home to check grounding of your dish system, while he is there he will also check the grounding where you plug the receivers in, i suggest not using any surge protectors/power strips and, as debmaldo did, try different outlets, if you have a very high end surge protector, it should be okay but for troubleshooting purposes try a different wall receptacle

you may be using an equalizer? try to pop-up the volume with all tone controls in flat mode. see if it still cuts off. if this is the first time youencounter this then something must be wroing with either your speakers or your amp. unless your ventilation is not good enoughg, you can also try placing a blower on top of your unit to cool it down
