Describe your Magnavox Stereo Mini System FW36 Problem My speakers that came with the stereo dont really work. only when I turn the volume all the way up I can hear the music, but the sound is really quiet. So quiet that I am only able to hear it when the room is completely quiet or if I put my ear to the speaker. Any suggestions for a solution?

Yes.

NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING.
Turn the volume control to something medium.
The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

Kenwood A722L no sound and volume led blinking


This could be due to a faulty speaker relay (if your unit uses one). Normally, the unit will "wait" a couple of seconds after you turn the unit on. Then you will hear a "click" and the sound will begin coming through the speakers. If the relay is faulty, it would cause the problem you describe.

Mini stereo system shuts off when i turn the volume up, what's wrong with it?


The problem is in the audio output ic, or bad solder contacts, check to make sure there are no bare speaker wires showing, and if by chance you added additional speakers, then that is the problem and should be removed.

My stereo sysytem is a mini stereo: serial number 10200055. It currently says "protect", what is this and how do we return our system to normal operations?


Hi there,

When the word PROTECT appears on this display, this means the unit has detected a critical fault which could potentially cause harm to your stereo system.

The most common cause is a short circuit somewhere - something even as simple as loose speaker wiring could cause a short, triggering the Protect message.

You will need to determine if there is a possible short somewhere, so I recommend you start by firstly turning power OFF, disconnecting all speaker wires, then turn unit back ON.

Operate the stereo (without speakers) and turn volume up:
  • If Protect message appears when turning volume up, then stereo unit itself has an internal fault
  • If no Protect message appears, then suspect the speakers may be causing the issue.
  • Reduce volume and turn unit OFF
Re-connect speakers (ensure the connections are secure), turn unit ON:
  • If turning volume up triggers the Protect message again, there is an issue with the speakers or connections

Hope this helps.....

How do i connect an ipod to my sony str-de310 receiver


Connecting to a home stereo
  1. For most home stereo systems, connect iPod to your amplifier's sound input using a 3.5 mm mini stereo to RCA adapter cable.
  2. Adjust the volume on iPod to less than half to prevent overdriving your amplifier. Adjust the listening volume using your stereo's controls.

    Note: Depending on your stereo, iPod may need to be set higher than half in order to get a proper volume through external speakers.

I replaced my mini component stereo (360 watt) speakers with new speakers that apparently can handle up to 600 watts. If the volume is too high on the receiver, the power cuts out. I think this is because...


probably you are right due to high impedance of the speaker the receiver cant handle it, the mini component can handle 80 to 100 watts only. you need a high watts amplifier to used your 360 watts speaker, just connect it to the audio output of the mini component. thanks

No audio from mini input jack on Pioneer SupertunerIIID 50w x4


The mini jack was not designed to work in the manner in which you are trying to use it. The stereo output is always going to be at a higher output rate than the amplifier output. if you want to use an MP3 player with your stereo you will have to purchase a head unit with a built-in MP3 input or deal with the lower rate of volume.

Stereo volume goes up itself


Funny huh? Actually, some aftermarket radios like Pioneer have a setting where it senses cabin volume and ups the radio volume itself to overcome cabin noise. I doubt this is your problem and belive the unit is really "mental" and needs repair/replace...

Boston 746 speakers


they might have had a mini amp installed in each speaker some models of speakers have that feature to where u have to hook up power and also the regular speaker connections to the radio system basically even if you have a radio with some power then the speakers may have some type of crossover or something that makes it so if u dont have the power hooked up to them then they wont work right... but there are some speakers out there that dont do that, or it could be that if the stereo that u r using may just be that it has barely any output so it doesnt power the speakers... option 1, if it is the stereo then u will eather have to go to a car shop that sells the self powering speakers "not as cheap as regular speakers" and get those or, option 2, which consists of having to install a new stereo system with more power "remember the system hass to have a little more power than all the speakers combined together..."
