Onkyo tx-sv727 Protect displayed

I ran all new Speaker wire, I used 16 gauge speaker wire.
I connected 2 -front, 2 -rear, center, Sub Wolfer, and 2-remote speakers.
Total about 200 feet of 16 gauge speaker wire.

When I turned on the receiver it played for about 5 min. and quit.
My receiver is displaying PROTECT, and I have no sound.

From your postings - I need to go and get the receiver repaired.

Did I run to big of speaker wire?
Is there a device that I can add that could support this heavy wire?

Jeff,

First thing if it says protect, check the fuses inside the system they may of blown .When choosing wire gauge, consider the quality of your components and speakers, the overall sound quality you're trying to achieve, and the budget you're working with. Also, keep in mind the distance between your receiver or amp and your speakers long wire runs can cause significant power losses, and thus require thicker cable. You can use this as a guideline
Distance from speaker to amplifier Gauge
Less than 80 feet 16
80 to 200 feet 14
More than 200 feet 12

How can I hook up BIC F12 subwoofer to Onkyo TX-DS838 receiver? Will the receiver power the subwoofer and other speakers?


Get a RCA cable and connect from your amp where it said Sub Woofer in the Pre Out box in the back of the amplifier top left hand side and take it to the "Sub In" located in the back of your Sub woofer bottom right hand (White round connector).
Good Luck!

My onkyo reciever (tx-ds656) powers on, then after a couple seconds says "protect" and powers down. why is this happening? rmill24@yahoo.com


"protect" comes on for 4 reasons.

1. crossed or damaged speaker wires- make sure that the positive and negative is not crossed at all. inspect the wiring for any loose strands of wire that might be crossed, touching the speaker frame or touching the metal case of the amp. look for any damage to the wires. use new speaker wires, if you need to.

2. improper speaker ohmage- verify that your speakers are 8 ohms or greater. ohmage is usually labeled on the back of the speaker, and will have the greek letter "Omega" ω next to the ohmage rating. example: 8ω or 16ω.

3. blown speaker- push in on the woofers, it should move freely for an inch or 2 before bottoming out. if it feels like its scratchy or rubbing or there is any resistance before it bottoms out, then the speaker's voice coil is melted.

4. blown amp.

Wonding can you hook up 4 8omhs speakers to a dual center channel. rear plate on amp says 1 speaker 8 omhs min 2 speakers 4omhs min there are 4 posts in back if i hook up 2 8omhs speakers in parral to both...


You are correct

spks in p = lower than the rating of one

spks in s = greater than the rating of one

so 2 x 8ohms in p = 4ohms

and 2 x 8ohms in s =16ohms

Make sure that you do not connect too many speakers to the amp, and try to stay as close as possible to the amps specs.

How do I connect my outside speakers to play?


The onkyo should still have a speaker A/B selector in the menu.
Check on the back panel for speaker A/B.
If it has or you decide to use Zone 2 you will need to set the sound programme to "stereo" so the rears and centre do not work.
You can still use a digital source.
You should be able to display the amp's menu on the screen.
Hook up "monitor out" (Yellow) via RCA connector to one of the "A/V inputs" (yellow) on the tv, this will show you a display of the menu and will make it eaiser to navigate.

Onkyo TX-SV 727 PROTECT mode


Generally, this happens when there's a loose connection somewhere, either internally, or with the connections. It usually happens when the volume's too loud, and it tries to protect itself.

I'd suggest you unplug everything from it, check all the speaker wires, and then try turning it on, without any devices connected to it.

If it works, turn it off, and reconnect devices, one by one. That should fix it.

If not, it's likely that there's a loose solder inside, and it needs to be sent out for service.

Every time I turn on my Onkyo receiver it goes in to protect mode.


Please check your speaker cables. Make sure that all of them are seated properly, none is touching each other or to the body of receiver.

Are you using banana plugs for connecting speaker or just directly. Some times even a little tiny frayed speaker cable touching the receiver could trigger the protect mode. Be careful, since protect mode is sometimes not fast enough to activate and it could blow a few trasistors in the power output circuit.

Please take out all the speaker cables, unplug your receiver from the mains and try to restart without any cables plugged. If it powers on then you are lucky.

If not and the receiver still goes into protect mode or wont turn on then it possible that there are bad connections on the main board or have some blown transistors. How old is your system? if its still under warranty then you should contact Onkyo immidiately.

Let me know if I can be of any further help. Please do rate this solution and thanks for using FixYa!

Powered Or Unpowered Subwoofers For Onkyo TX-8511


Greg- Powered subs are better than non-powered subs (also known as passive subs), anyway I see the TX-8511 has no sub pre-out on the back panel, so you need to decide what sub you will use and run from the receivers left and right speakers output into a subwoofers speaker in from speakers then back out to speakers, look at the back of a subwoofer and you will see like 4 sets of speaker hookups 2 in and 2 out, what this does is takes the low end or bass and drops the signal to the subwoofer then takes the mids and highs out to your left and right speakers, unless your regular left and right stereo speakers have large woofers a sub is the way to go.

Hi We are setting up our new Onkyo TX SR606 receiver but are having trouble with the automatic speaker set-up. The 2 front speakers, centre and the back right speaker are ok, but there is an error...


Hi there. If you are running a 5.1 speaker system, make sure your surround speakers are on the surround terminal NOT ON THE SURROUND BACK. the surround back is only for the 7.1 speaker system.

Onkyo TX-SR500 Dolby Digital problem


I just read over the problem you were having with your Onkyo TX-SR500 receiver. It sound like the unit needs to be setup for all five channels.Sence your symptom says the diplay shows Dolby D3/2.1. According to the owners manual with the remote control look for speaker setup whin the button is pressed the current speaker setup will be shown in the display. Press the preset/adjustment<> to change the current setting to five speakers. the listening mode will automatically change according to the number of channels you selected. Hope this helps.
