Question about Onkyo TX-SV636 Receiver
The receiver has operated flawlessly for years. Two days ago, I turned my receiver on via the power button on the remote. It came on, and then sut off a half second later. It continually tries to turn itself back on, then shuts off one half second later. This is an endless cycle, and the only thing that I can do to make it stop is to unplug it. Upon plugging it back in, it immediately enters this cycle again, without me trying to turn it back on. If left unplugged for a good while, the on/off cycle will start slow, but then will quickly get back to its regular pace. I took the cover off, and the main fuse (6.3A) looks fine. I unplugged the speakers in case there was a short, and that did not alleviate the problem. With nothing plugged into the receiver, it still does this. I'd appreciate the board's expertise in solving this.
Its one of Three problems. The main b+ filter is defective, one of the standby power sources have a bad capacitor on the line, or theres a short in the main amp. section. Its probabvly going to cost you more then you would care to invest in a reciver thats around 5 to 6 years old. Its most likly time for you to upgrade to a suround sound dydtem with new fancy lights bells and whistles. Good Luck
