Receiver Shorting Out?

When I turn the volume up on the receiver past 1/4 while listening to music, the receiver will click and either completely shut down (meaning no more clock and unplugging is required to turn it back on) or it will turn off and blink (similar to what happens after a power outage). It will also do this while watching a movie for an extended period of time; leading me to believe it is overheating or there is a short somewhere.

Re: Receiver Shorting Out?

The power supply regulator is bad. it a bad regulator ic erroe transistor or even a bad capacitor. if you have the proper equipment and know how to troubleshoot solid state electronics, you should have No problem finding this fault. If your not trained to repair electronics, most likly this set will not be worth repairing or spending any money one.

Yamaha htr 5730 manual

You would have to have a mini-plug (headphone) to RCA cable and connect the headphone jack to one of the rca inputs on the receiver. Make sure that the volume on the laptop isn't turned up too loud, or you may over-drive the receiver amp and cause it to shut down.

Dennon gets hot shuts off

how are your four outside speakers hooked up? If you have four speakers hooked up to only two output channels on the receiver, the receiver is sensing a short and shutting down to avoid damage to the amp.

Kenwood Receiver VR 806 turning off

Sounds like the music amplifier is different to the tuner audio amp. The music amplifier is now looking at an unbalanced impedance which is less than it should be. Therefore the output chip of the music amp has more current through it than it wants so it gets hot and shuts down.Put a four ohm wirewound resistor ( from Radio Shack ) in series with each surround speaker to reduce the current flow through the amplifier output.

My Sony STR-DG500 wont turn on just clicks once and nothing.

Sounds like faulty psu (pwer suply unit) Amp is going into protection mode. Disconnected all speaker and av wires (only power) turn up volume and see if it stays on. If not psu, sounboard or volume function faulty. If on, connect one speaker L or R. Go to tuner mode to tuned radio station an listen for sounds. If on, connect speakers and av cables one by one and test each one on its own until amp switches off, Investigate from there were problem is. Make sure speakerwires is not shorting out.

Receiver will click off

check your power supply to make sure the correct amps and volts are there. check your speakers to verify the correct ohms for the receiver. if the ohms are to big you will shut down because it overdraws on the receiver.

Yamaha RX-V1400 receiver powers off, in case it becomes louder

Hey, yeah that can be frustrating.

When you turn it up do you hear the relay or a clicking sound, then you turn it on and it comes back below the +2db?

Try unplugging All the speaker wires from the unit. Turn on the unit and listen for the click.
after the click, turn it up past the 2+ db mark and see if you hear it click or shut down. If it did not click off, then suspect a shorted crossover on one of your speakers.
2nd test is to plug in One speaker, and test it at high volume, it will not harm it. If it shuts off disconnect that speaker and try another. Only one at a time.
If it works at high volume, you need to isolate one of your speakers and i bet it has a shorted crossover that has been cooked. P.S. If one is bad, suspect they will fail at a later date.
If they all fail, use a friends speaker and try it before sending it to a repair shop.

P.S. i found one on ebay i think you can get for under $100 bucks in the box.|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A2|240%3A1318

Onkyo tx-sr602 as soon as i turn receiver on it flashes protect

Does it display any message like "Protect" or something similar? Do you hear a relay click on then off?

Did the amp just not power up one day or did it stop working while you were listening to it? Finally, do you have teenage kids who might have been listening to your receiver and would have "neglected" to tell you that after listening to their music it suddenly stopped working?

It could be an internal fuse but chances are its something that requires a technician to repair (like the output transistors).

The receiver sound shuts off

There is a problem with the receiver that is allowing DC voltage to get to the output amp section. This is detected and the protection circuit shuts down the receiver. Yamaha uses coupling capacitors between sections to prevent this. If one of these is defective, it would explain your symptom. This should be a relatively simple repair for a repair shop. Expect $10-$25 for parts plus the local labor rate.

Receiver turns on and clicks off when volume is raised over 8 or 9 on the dial

I had the same problem with my Yamaha amp. It turned out to be a shorting speaker wire. When I resoldered the speaker wall outlet connection it worked fine!
