I would unplug the unit and then un-hook all speaker wires from the receiver. Next power the unit back on with no speakers attached, if you still get "amp err" then you likely have a power supply or regulator problem. If the unit seems to power on ok, then add one speaker at a time and test. This receiver has a power up routine and it looks at speaker load before sending signal. If there is a short in the cable or the speakers are presenting a load below 4 ohms then the receiver will never power up correctly.
Good Luck. Hope you get your beats back.

How do i fix this when I turn it on it makes a burning smell. Then it blinks shutdown and turns off


if your amp is making a burning smell, 1st remove all speaker loads and input plugs (to verify its an internal fault ) do not raise volume without speakers loads connected , if amp doesn't heat up and smell burning then , you have an external problem you;ll need to find and fix , but if amp persists in the burning smell an internal part(s) have failed and need service

My JVC RX-801V has a short? The 5 amp fuze burns out every time I replace it. what could be the problem?


Probably the output transistors have blown or the amplifier capacitors are dried out.

Fuses are there to protect you and the device from further damage. Repeatedly replacing a fuse without fixing the cause of why it keeps blowing in the first place isn't a wise decision.

Replaced bad thermal cutoff on Whirlpool dryer LEC6848an with new kit FSP 279769 (cutoff & t-stat). Also, cleaned duct, vent, chute, etc. Heats now, but had to shut it off after a few seconds due to...


It is common to have a slight burning smell in the dryer immediately following a clean and inspect of the cabinet. Although you may have cleaned the dryer cabinet interior and the ventilation ducting, dust particles often get stirred up and will settle on the heating element. These small particles will eventually burn off and should not create any hazards to the operation of the appliance. Allow to run for a few minutes and monitor. The smell should go away.

I tried hooking up an old polk sub to my yamaha rx-v659 av receiver. smelled wires burning smell. before i could unplug it, receiver shut down. now it will power up for about 5 seconds and shut off. manual...


If a fuse was blown, it likely would have no power. However if the power board has overheated, the capacitors may have swelled up and burnt out and will only allow it to power on for a few seconds, then shut down. The capacitors can look swelled up or burnt or have burn marks on the power circuit board. You can test them with a continuity meter. Each component has a printed number of it's voltage and ohm resistance so you can test them.

I have a fisher paykel GWL10 washing machine. It shuts off while


At this stage i can suggest that the inlet valve may be faulty & giving off this burning smell.open the control box & see if one of the 2 inlet valves look distorted or brown or burnt looking.I'm wondering if it's not filling very fast also,this could also be an indication of the valve.

Burned wire smell from rear of receiver at the fan, blown fuse


chances are you have shorted out (burnt out) your output transistors usually by crossing speaker wires to the channel(s) that the blown fuses cover the burning smell are the bias resistors. take the unit to a authorized repair dealer or radio shack for service. sometimes repair can be tricky if you are not experienced.

Do you smell anything burning. This happened to me and I cut it back on. It stayed on for 30 secs or so and did the same thing. After doing this 2-3 times, I smelled a burning. Being a member of the Fire Dept, I didn't want to see my buddy's coming to the house, so I unplugged it. The next day, I took it apart and there was a burnt resistor or something under neath the fan. I took it back and they gave me a new receiver, but I'm expecting the same with this one.

Burning odor, no heat


A burning smell along with a different sound (growl) USUALLY indicates a breakdown in the High Voltage Side. This is not a direct short (short circuit) or the line fuse would have blown shutting everything down. The High Voltage Side is made up of-- The Secondary ,or High Voltage Side of The High Voltage Transformer, A High Voltage Diode, A High Voltage Capacitor, and The Magnetron. If The High Voltage Transformer is the problem it will smell like a florescent light ballast burning, and will smell each time you turn on the MW. A HV Diode burns and opens, thus no more smell. A HV Capacitor usually does not burn nor does the Magnetron. There is no Cheap-Fix unless you can see that the HV Diode is burned into and you can get to it to replace. CAUTION: Always unplug from power before attempting to repair. NOTE: If you replace a Diode make sure it goes back in the same direction it came out. Yes there is a front and back.
