Have you got the right type of speakers connected to the unit? Because if the speakers can not take the power out of the unit on high volume, the system will shut it down to prevent overload. The speakers should be able to take the full power of the amp. For example it will be no use connecting 30 watt speakers to a 40 watt amp. You can of course use 30 Watt Speakers, but you can NEVER turn the volume control much pass 70%.
If the amp can deliver say 40W you need speakers of 40W or greater. Also never connect speakers that have a lower ohms rating than the stated. So if it says 8ohms on the amp you can connect 8ohms or greater speakers. Never connect 6ohms type speakers.

SOURCE: Receiver goes into protect mode when hitting certain volume level

There is a problem in one of the output channels of the amplifier. That is the only reason it will do this. I work at an authorized Denon service center and have seen this problem several times, but it has never been the same thing that causes it. It has always resulted in extensive troubleshooting to find the problem. One time it was a capacitor in the pre-driver circuit for one of the channels, another time it was a transistor in the same type of circuit. I can not remember all the other causes. But without the proper tools and the knowledge of how to troubleshoot an amplifier circuit you will never figure it out.

Since this is an older model, more than 3 years old, it is no longer under warranty. They get a 2 year warranty from Denon. You can take it to any service center that works on stereo equipment and they should be able to fix it for a reasonable fee. Probable around $125 to $150 depending on their rates. It may seem like a lot, but it is much cheaper than buying a new one.

Since this is really the only option for you, unless you have the tools and knowledge, a FixYa! would be much appreciated and appropriate.

If you would like to troubleshoot it yourself, let me know, I have the service manual in PDF and can email it to you if you like and help you with troubleshooting it. But be aware, it is not an easy job.

SOURCE: When volume goes high, the system goes in protection and relay's clik is heared

This is not the fault with remote control. Check the load connected to the device. If overload occurs, the device will itself go to protect mode. Disconnect speakers one by one and check which speaker box causes the system to go to protect mode, when volume is incresed. Check that speaker for short.

No sound and light on input selector knob is Flashing. Light only flashes when speaker switch has been turned to A, B or A&B.


This can happen if there's a dead short in a speaker wire or if you're using very low impedance loudspeakers at high volume for an extended length of time. If the protection light came on due to a speaker wire short, low impedance condition or a bad speaker, the receiver's power will need to be turned off to reset it. Before turning the power back on, all speaker wire connections should be checked for their integrity at the receiver side and at the speaker side. If the protection light goes on immediately after you turn on the receiver, disconnect the speaker wires at the receiver side and retest. If the receiver's protection light goes off, then there would still seem to be a problem with one channel's speaker wires or speakers. Connecting them one by one and retesting should allow you to find the problem speaker or connection.

Xtc 7500w amp


The amp might be on protection mode when both subs are driven...sign of an overloading problem. Does it work fine at lower volume levels? Check also the amp's supply voltage if it fluctuates out of tolerance level...might also be a loose connection in the wiring or terminals in the supply rails.

Pinstripe cinema display flickers on momentarily then goes black. Image comes back for a split second while when power light glows steadily then goes away while power light flickers. this is a 22"...


when the screen is black and the power light is steadly lit, shine a flash light at the screen. if you can see something, the inverter board is bad and the back light cannot turn on. if the power light flickers, reseat the power plug and put your ear to the back of the monitor where the power plug is. if you hear a buzzing or any high pitched noises; the power supply is bad. use the macufactures warranty for repairs.

Eltax avr-200 no sound


Eltax AVR-200 will start up in protection mode if the amplifer went into protection mode due to high volume before it was turned OFF and it will start at the same volume level as it had before power OFF.

To correct this you must shift to another input without signal, then turn the volume down before it goes into protection mode again.
