    In the last week the protector has been coming on whilst watching films - most anoyingly when I was about to show off how amazing a particular explosion was. Anyway my rears are currently connected with electrical cable because I'm a very poor student with very expensive hobbies - could the this be the cause or is there a problem with my relatively new amp.

    The amps black if that helps at all.

    Thanks.

    So what's the problem? Should we guess?

    Perhaps it helps if you paint it pink with yellow dots ... [​IMG]

    I've said what the problem is the protector of my Sony 940 amp has been coming on during parts which are a bit loud (eg. explosions etc).

    So you think painting might make a difference, are the colours you've suggested the most likely to solve my problem or there others which will have more effect?

    Thanks.

    Sorry, I understood you were watching a film called "Protector", but you mean 'protection circuit'!
    And you amp is not black in color then I assume!?

    Then there are two possibilities (and this time I am serious):
    Check the wiring of the LS cables, there might be some strands causing a shortcut.
    Else you are driving the amp too hard, what's the impedance (and type/model) of your speakers?
    Are you using a subwoofer? Active/Passive?

    Rgds,
    Reiner (who's English is obviously pretty bad)

    The same thing happened on my 930 after about
    a year. Without doubt the problem was caused by dodgy speaker connections.

    As it happened I was about to replace my cabling anyway. New cable, no more PROTECTOR problems.

    Thanks, I'm going to get some decent cable (QED Micro) for the surrounds later in the week.

    My amp is black and it's staying that way as I was just joking (Jonny - I don't think anybody (well not many people) could be that stupid!)

    Also reiner your English is better than mine and I do English A-Level!
