Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Receiver shuts off abruptly when loud sounds are heard.

My receiver abruptly shuts off when loud sounds are heard. For example; explosions or loud action scenes. When I turn it back on it says "Check SP Wires". I've checked every wire and they are not touching nor are they reversed. I've had the receiver for about 5 years and never had a problem before. I first thought the input selected had a problem but it occurs on any input selected.

    The speakers were bought with the receiver. I just finished remodeling the room in which the receiver is in, making it more of a home theater, so i've been listening to movies and tv at louder levels. It seems shut off only after sudden loud bursts, like explosions.

    HTR-5860 that says "check SP wires" when you first turn it on. Fine at low volumes, but once the sound gets a little loud, it shuts off.

    Only started after system was disconnected and moved to replace the flooring in the room. Speakers are properly cabled to the system, there are no frays or stray wires anywhere. All speaker wires are "jack" style and patch into a wall plate .

    I thought it could be a power supply issue, any ideas?

Are they new speakers you are using? some receivers have a overload seting so you don't mess up or blow anything, sometimes this can interfear with your music, etc..

Hi, I have a Yamaha HTR - 6130 that seems O.K. until loud action scenes & explosions,then it shuts itself off.


There are two causes for this. One that there is a fault on the amp that is causing an overload circuit to trip and shut itself down. Or the settings of your speakers levels are wrong. So you are turning it up to hear the quiet parts of movies and therefore when louder sections come along your are driving the amp too much.
Some DVD discs that have THX on them have a sound set up on them. If you have one access the THX sound menu on the disc and adjust your speakers to produce the correct levels. If it does happen after that there's a fault.
By the way most of the George Lucas films (Star Wars) will have THX on them.

My Pioneer VSX-519V shut off after I setup my surround speakers ,I did a last test to be sure they were set correct ,I heard a loud pitch come from each speaker rather that the softer shhh sound ,my amp...


I'd disconnect the surrounds and try to bring up the receiver again. If it works you may have only cooked the surrounds. If not, you've possibly cooked the receiver. Disconnect all speakers and try again. If it still won't work then you need a tech to look at it.

What make/model speakers were you trying to set up?

My Onkyo Receiver TX 601 is turning itself off


Several things can cause this: Loud signal passages can momentarily draw high currents at the mains, especially if you have unit plugged into power stripe with other equipment. Or if unit is plugged into isolation transformer, current draw may exceed output of transformer. Too many speakers hooked to output or if one is bad (partially shorted due to overheating)

YAMAHA HTR 5660 MAKES POPING SOUND WITH LOUD NOISE AND BRIGHT LIGHT


Looks like you've got the best connection available - initially I thought it might have something to do with decoding the prologic signal from the analog input, but obviously not! And since you've got the audio separate from the video it is unlikely there is any interference from the video signal in the cable. Have you tried a different DVD player (I reckon that is most likely)? Also try connecting the video signal DIRECTLY from DVD to the TV if you aren't already doing so (you are anyway aren't you - the HTR 5660 doesn't have HDMI out does it?) Finally, if you have some spare cables around, try changing them - see if you get the same response when using component video cable instead of HDMI.

My Onkyo Receiver TX 601 is turning itself off


May not help, but I had the same thing when I turned up the volume.. off it went.. then I found my two surround sound speakers had the wires shorting. Looks like a safety switch if there is a problem. Could check if the wires are crossed, shorted, and/or thick enouch to handle the volume.. test it by just having the stereo speakers enabled. Cheers,

Sony STR-DE475 - Sound levels dropping


When did this start? Did it ever work right?

How's the sound from your TV speakers by itself and from DVD? The same? Problem's in the TV.

If it's just the receiver doing it from both sources that's where we start.

Check the settings for dynamic range (ratio of loud sounds to soft sounds) in both your receiver and your cable TV tuner. Many devices have a setting sometimes called "MidNight Mode" to be used in the event you're listening while someone else might be sleeping or otherwise would be disturbed by the TV volume.

The assumption is that you will turn the TV down but that normally means you would lose the quiet programming in the background nosie of your home. Through the magic of dynamic compression the quiter sounds are raised to audibility while loud things like explosions and fanfares will be limited in volume. Depending on the design and whatever the broadcaster is doing to the sound themselves this could be anywhere from pleasingly effective to aggravatingly inconsistent with odd variations in the levels.

Hope this helps.
