Kenwood 1080VR - shuts down

As soon as I turn on the receiver it lights up, clicks, then shuts down. It does not stay on long enough to power any sounds thru the speakers. Any ideas?

    A friend of mine has the same problem and so do I. I have the 1080VR my friend has a slightly different model but close. It seems as if you can get it to warm up it will stay on but the sound will sometimes spike and muffle out. My friend tried changing an internal fuse but it didn't correct the problem. If had to guess , the Amp is burning out...

Hi Markes,

It could be that there is a frayed speaker wire touching the back of the receiver and when playing at a low level the speakers do not require that much power, however when the level from the speakers increases more power is required and if there is a frayed speaker wire touching the back of the receiver there could be a short causing the receiver to shut down. A way to avoid the frayed wire is to use "Banana Connectors" that the speaker wires goes to and the connector will plug into the speaker posts. Please try the following to see where the issue is coming from. Have the receiver turned off, make sure all the speaker wires are labeled, and disconnect them from the speaker terminals. Turn the receiver on select a source that would give you sound if the speakers where still connected and turn the volume all the way up. If the receiver shuts down than it would need to go to a service center as it is an internal problem with it. If the receiver does not shut down, turn the volume down, shut the receiver off and connect one speaker and than turn the receiver on selecting the same source as before and raising the volume up. If the receiver shuts down, remove that speaker from the post and connect it to another speaker post to determine if it is the receiver or the speaker itself that is giving you the problem. If the receiver should shut down after moving that speaker you know it is a problem with the speaker or the wiring. If the receiver does not shut down, turn the volume down, shut the receiver off and connect another speaker followed by doing the previous test procedure. Keep adding speakers until you have them all reconnected to the receiver as long as it has not shut off while trying the test procedure. After determining whether it is the speakers or the receiver you would need to bring either to a service center to be repaired. To locate an authorized independent service center, check the dealer and service locator at our website: www.onkyousa.com or www.integrahometheater.com, Thanks, JT

How do i check to see what is causing my receiver to shut off


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.

My RX-V765 has been working fine for over a year... not a problem one. Now, over the last couple of weeks, the receiver will turn OFF just a couple of seconds after turning on. Powers up, display comes on,...


Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

Hi all I have a "HARMAN/KARDON


Hi, I just wrote an article for someone to deal with this situation in another Harmon/Kardon Receiver.
Here it is for you.
"What we are doing, in this case is looking for a shorted out speaker system, or wiring to speakers, or cables or components that are connected to the receiver that have a short circuit. This is what I would do if I were called to your house to debug your sound system.
Follow this procedure and see what happens. Let me know how this works for you.
Best Regards, Mark

1 Disconnect one set of speakers at the back of the receiver and turn the power button on again. See if it stays on. If it doesn't go to step 2.
2 Remove the next speaker and keep repeating the test.
3 If it still stays off, disconnect all of the equipment connected to the unit, one piece at at time. After each time, turn the receiver back on to see if it shuts down.
Somewhere along the line, the receiver may not shut down. If that is the case
identify the the offending cable(or component)and replace or service it.
I hope this solves it for you. If not your receiver will unfortunately need professional servicing,
Best,
Mark

Sounds like an overload. Make sure it's getting enough air, no shorts, and using speakers with compatible impedance.
If you press and hold down the power button long enough it might reset it...up to 15 seconds I think.

The clicking noise is the protection circuit., sounds like you have a grounded speaker wire, but you say the speakers are not connected so the amp may be toast. Is there any smell of burnt wires? This is ussuallt noticable near the circuit board if something failed!
