Receiver Keeps Shutting Off When You Turn Volume Up

I just recently purchased a big screen tv and reconnected my receiver to it and my dvd player. Now that I have done so it seems as though I can't get sound to stay on with the receiver anymore. It seems as though there is a short somewhere because as you turn the volume up the entire system just shuts down. We have check the wires and they all seem to be connected properly and none of them are touching, but we were wondering if there is something else that we can do. Thanks for your help, Sterling/Katrina

SOURCE: my receiver keeps shutting off

most of the time this is an over heating problem with the unit. Make sure that it has proper ventalation around it. It could also mean that the fan is shot on the unit . You could try using a can of compressed air in it to free up some of the dust that has accumalated inside of the unit. Hope this helps

This is a very common problem on Onkyo's DVCP704 and DVCP706 dvd players but sometimes happens on their receivers too. What happens is it hangs the cpu and it sits there waiting for that one of 3 or 4 'key' lines to go back high before it will accept any other input signals. If this is the problem and whatever shop you take it too finds it readily it shouldn't be to pricey but that is alot of 'if's' n'stuff. wink.gif

Keep in mind this is a long distance diagnosis and there are a number of things that could bring on this symptom.. That's just the most likely imo.

Try pressing and releasing all of your front panel buttons once one after another. Once in a long while I see a receiver that got bumped and the plastic button the user actually touches gets caught in the down position holding the tact switch depressed. This will cause the same symptom.
Each should have roughtly the same feeling as you press them.

Onyko tx nr616 receiver keeps shutting off. Only stays on for approximately 3 seconds. Can you help?

The amp protection circuit has been activated. Remove the power cord from the wall outlet immediately. Disconnect all speaker cables and input sources, and leave the AV receiver with its power cord disconnected for 1 hour. After that, reconnect the power cord and reconnect an input and a pair of speaker wires onto the unit. If the receiver still does not turn on than you will have to bring it in for service. Turn up the volume and if the receiver doesn't shut down, power off the receiver and add another pair of speakers. Power up the unit again and turn up the volume. If it doesn't shut down, power off the unit again. Now connect all your input sources and turn on your receiver. If the unit shuts down again, your unit will need to be further serviced at an authorized Onkyo service center.

When playing dvd or or on video 3 playing a directv movie. Receiver keeps shutting off and the screen says protect. Seems to do it when the movie scene gets loud.

check your wires if there not touching behind the speakers and receiver. when it says protect this means something is shorting out or crossing over. one other thing it may be is if a speaker is starting to go bad. (please rate)

I recently purchased a new Samsung Blue Ray player. My previous Sony DVD player used the blue,green, red cords plugged into DVD imput, and I used Coaxial for sound. The Blue Ray only uses HDMI, which the...

Optical carries only 5.1 sound, no video. HDMI carries both video and sound. If your receiver doesn't have HDMI, check your TV for optical output. You can go BluRay to TV via HDMI, then TV to receiver via optical.

If you don't have optical out on your tv, you're going to need either a receiver with HDMI or a BluRay player with component output (blue, green, red).

Have to turn the volume near max on my Onkyo receiver to hear TV

it sounds like a source level adjustment refer to your users manual and see if there is a way to turn the SLA up and if not then a small amp can be bought or purchased to boost the sound from the tv. check out the Fiio E5 for examples it might just do the trick

Proper input for TV audio signal

Do you have your DVD player running through your receiver? You want the red and white (audio) cables to go from your DVD player to your receiver and the yellow (video) cable to go from your DVD player to your TV. Separate the red, white, and yellow cable into separate strands if you need to, but be careful not to tear the insulation. They should pull apart fairly easily. If I'm totally off or you're using a coaxial or component video/audio cables or a fiber optic cable, let me know. Hope this helps

Digital optical from DVD player produces no audio

Hi, It sounds like your receiver is still looking for audio on the coaxial connection, rather than the optical.

1. Make sure the optical connection is between your DVD player and the LD/DVD Optical In on the back of your receiver.
2. If you have a monitor connected to the receiver to show the on-screen display, click Setup from the main menu, click Input Mode, then, next to LD/DVD choose Optical. It may be set to coaxial, analog or auto.

Alternatively, choose the input source on the front of your receiver (LD/DVD), then press Input Mode button (bottom right, near the input selector) till it displays Digital Optical.

If all else fails, reset the receiver by:
1. Turn off the receiver
2. Hold down DISPLAY and PANEL UP/DOWN buttons and press power.
3. All Clear should appear on the screen.

Use caution, however, as this will erase all the settings in your receiver.
