I've had the same problem for over a month and have yet to find the time to get to it. However, I there may be a fuse on the circuit board that needs to be replace. That's just my guess.

Hope it's the solution.

Turns on for a couple seconds and then it says power off and shuts down,what could be doing this?


Try disconnecting each speaker one at a time and see if the amp turns on normally. If it does then you should replace the last speaker wires you pulled. Beyond that, the amp could be bad.

Turns on and turns directly off after only a couple of seconds


Possible that a speaker short may have damaged one of your output channels. When that happens it is not common for the receiver to shut down to prevent further damage to other components.

How do i reset avr-1705 denon amp?


Before you reset, are you doing this because the amp went in to some sort of protection mode?

Resetting will allow the amp to redo the self diagnosis. But if the problem remains then the amp will shut down again. Resetting doesn't fix things like bad wiring or blown output transistors. So only reset once you are sure you've checked through the system for any problems.

As a safety measure, disconnect your speakers before doing the reset. If the amp goes in to protection again then it is an indication that there are either shorted speaker outputs inside the unit.

Unplug the unit from AC power for 30 minutes, and disconnect all of the speakers and other associated equipment. Upon plugging back in, press and hold the power button at the same time for 5-10 seconds to force a hard reset.

If the unit starts up normally start connecting the speakers one at a time (shutting the power down before connecting each one), until one of the speakers causes the receiver to shut down. This speaker is faulty and would need to be replaced.

If the unit does not power up with NO speakers connected, then it needs the output transistors replaced inside the unit. These directly drive the loudspeaker outputs on the receiver itself, and one or more of them being shorted (closed circuit), will trigger the error on the display of the receiver, and it will not go off until the problem is repaired. They are not user-replaceable as they are PCB mounted, and thermally coupled to a heatsink. In this case, the unit is in need of service.

TX DS989 turns off after 3 seconds


Sorry but it does sound like an Amp failure and testing the unit for other electronic component failure will be needed

WHEN U TURN ON THE TRUCK THE IN-DASH TURNS ON AND LOADS UP AND AFTER A COUPLE SECONDS IT SHUTS OFF.... BUT YOU CAN STILL HEAR IT THAT ITS ON.ITS THE PIONEER IN-DASH NAVIGATION AVIC-F90BT.


F900BT?
IF yes then this is normal because the unit is slow to shut off when you turn the key to the start position since there is a surge in amps. from your alternator and starter working at the same time the power surge causes the unit to shut off/ reset its self. this is just to protect the unit it is just to protect the unit.

Pioneer receiver vsx d814 amp error


The Pioneer VSX-D814 has a couple of Power Hybrid bricks that do all the power amplification. These are the infamous PAC011A. You should have 2 of those in your receiver.

If the amp detects some unusual activities, it may shut down the unit to prevent damage. “Amp Err” usually means some DC in the output.

Disconnect all the speakers and turn on the unit; if it acts normal, reconnect speakers one set at a time very carefully. If the unit still shows the error message you can try to reset it. If the reset works, again carefully reconnect the speakers connections. If the reset does not recover the normal operation of the unit, you may have one of the PAC011A damaged, and the unit will need repair.
The reset can be done by disconnecting the unit power cord for a few minutes, then plug it in and press “FRONT ENTER key + ADVANCED SURROUND key” continuously for 2sec.

Good luck

Onkyo SR502 Shuts off by itself


It is not a blown fuse. Your baby is in its ***** throes! It is fubar. You have either a damaged power supply or blown output stages (since sounds horrible it is probably this).

Receiver turns for a fews seconds then shuts down


Hi.
If the word "OVERLOAD" is in your display, we have a bad channel.
But if only turn off, and the standby led is on all the time, you need change a couple of resistor of 10 Ohms at 2 Watts in main board. But you need disassamble a must all the amplifier. A lot of work, but cheap part.

Best regards.
