    UGGH! this is soo frustrating, i things that plug in should never have enough power to do damage to themselves, why couldent there be like a breaker, or a fuse to solve this issue. i used to get the check speakers thing after alittle spark action. but now all i get is a very loud series of three clicks coming from the unit, not the speakers. just like the one you normally hear, but much louder, and not as nice sounding. why cant anyone be less vague on a simple fix. who said that it could be backwards capacitors? dont they come the right way, what couldave suddenly made them become backwards after they worked fine? I just need some help, and i ramble when im frustrated, thanks anyone.

My Receiver very rarely comes on but shuts off in few minutes even the standby doesn't lit up. but when on works perfectly.


Hi Joseph,

It could be that there is a frayed speaker wire touching the back of the receiver and when playing at a low level the speakers do not require that much power, however when the level from the speakers increases more power is required and if there is a frayed speaker wire touching the back of the receiver there could be a short causing the receiver to shut down. A way to avoid the frayed wire is to use "Banana Connectors" that the speaker wires goes to and the connector will plug into the speaker posts. Please try the following to see where the issue is coming from. Have the receiver turned off, make sure all the speaker wires are labeled, and disconnect them from the speaker terminals. Turn the receiver on select a source that would give you sound if the speakers where still connected and turn the volume all the way up. If the receiver shuts down than it would need to go to a service center as it is an internal problem with it. If the receiver does not shut down, turn the volume down, shut the receiver off and connect one speaker and than turn the receiver on selecting the same source as before and raising the volume up. If the receiver shuts down, remove that speaker from the post and connect it to another speaker post to determine if it is the receiver or the speaker itself that is giving you the problem. If the receiver should shut down after moving that speaker you know it is a problem with the speaker or the wiring. If the receiver does not shut down, turn the volume down, shut the receiver off and connect another speaker followed by doing the previous test procedure. Keep adding speakers until you have them all reconnected to the receiver as long as it has not shut off while trying the test procedure. After determining whether it is the speakers or the receiver you would need to bring either to a service center to be repaired.

What does it mean when u push the power button and the words ''chk spkr'' flashes on the display and still wont turn on??


The system connects to speakers with a certain impedance, i.e., 8 ohms, 4 ohms, etc. If you have connected the RCA speakers there may be a bad connection or the speaker(s) may be defective

Receiver shuts off says check sp cable


The reciever is telling you that their is a problem with the speaker cable. I sugges pinpointing which speaker cable it is by turning the system off then unplug all the speaker cables and then plug one in at a time, waiting inbetween allowing enough time for the system to pick up the bad sp cable. Then once you find the correct cable check it from the reciever to the speaker for any signs of breakage, shorts, or damage. Check the speaker connections from wire to speaker and from the wire to the reciever. If all that fails then check the speaker itself, try swaping another one in the position to see if the problem is solved. Hope this works.

It says chk spkr when i try to turn it on how do i get it to work agaiun?


You probably have a blown channel. but check for a shorted speaker wire or bad speaker. Remove all speaker wires from the rear of the receiver if it still says check speakers when turned on, then one of the output channels is bad.

Look at inside at capacitor and fuse but they seem ok. again once i turn it on, it would automatically shuts off after a second.


When a system shuts down after a few seconds it is the self protect circuit shutting down power to the outputs to prevent (further) damage. It may be caused by frayed speaker wires, bad speaker voice coils, or blown output transistors. First, turn off power and remove all speaker wires from the receiver. Turn it back on and see if the problem remains. If it works OK, inspect each speaker wire at both ends for loose strands and correct these. Then, hook up your speakers one at a time until the problem reappears. That speaker or its' wiring is your problem. For safety's sake. turn the receiver off before connecting each speaker. An accidental short of the output terminals can be disastrous (and expensive).

Every time I try to turn on my onkyo receiver it turns off instantly


the reason why the receiver probably keep turning off is that the systems come with overload protector to keep one from burning or short the systems out so it shut its self off. make sure you have the speaker wires is connected properly, its very important that you do although the receiver has 0% tolerance when it come to speakers hook up. positive from speaker to positive connector behind reciever; same as negative. double check all speakers wires. repost if that not an issue
