Question about Yamaha HTR-5830 Receiver

1 Answer

Help My receiver shuts itself off after about 2 seconds everytime I try to turn it on. The only other problem it has had was that the power cord was cut and replaced but it still worked after that and is still getting power.

Re: help

This normally happens when you have the speakers connected wrong. If a set of speakers wires is connected wrong (ie. the wire that should be in black is in red, and vice versa.) then it does that as like a safety switch I guess. I had this happen once before.

Receiver turns on for 2 seconds and then turns off itself, tried on different power sources but problem persists.

Short circuited component/s at its audio output stage circuit. Contact any service technician to get it repaired. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

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.

Amp turns of after 2 seconds of turning on

It is going into protection mode, and shutting itself off. You have a short somewhere. I would suggest taking it to an authorized service center for assistance. This is not easy to diagnose, as it could be anything causing the short.

Try disconnecting everything from the unit, including the speakers, and turning on again. This will just confirm that the problem is the amp, and nothing external. Also, try connecting it to a different power supply/socket.

I got the same problem with my Denon AVR-2105/885

Your receiver is going into protection. The first thing to do is disconnect all speakers at the receiver. Unplug the power cord, then let it set for 30 seconds. Plug it back in and power it on. If it stays on, you have either a wire shorting out at the back of the receiver, something that has pierced the speaker wire en-route to the speaker, a wire touching the other at the speaker or a blown speaker.

Speaker wires should only be trimmed about 1/2" bare at the terminal and make sure you twist the braid so it does not fray. Then connect speakers one at a time, testing the receiver power each time until it either shorts and cuts out, or, you have solved the problem. Hope this helps. If you need more help, post a comment and I can help you some more

Yamaha receiver turns off seconds after being turned on

It sounds like the amp is going into protect mode.
Dissconnect all speakers from back of amp and then try to turn on.
If it works, you have a short on one or more of the speakers.

You might have a short somewhere behind the back of your receiver.Maybe a speaker wire sticks out and it is touching the back of the metal panel,or an RCA connection to a wrong input or output.
It is common because when you are behind the receiver for so long,carelessness will cause you.
A professional A/V troubleshoot expert could pin point certain connection to fix it for you,but in your case,it will be the best to unplug everything first,turn on the receiver by itself and see if there is anymore shut off;if it doesn't shut off after you have nothing that is connect to but only the power cord,i prove my point!
Let me know,

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 RX-V596 Receive turns off after pressing Power

Sometimes the receivers turn off if the speakers are shorted in order to protect the AMP circuit. So try this - 1. Disconnect all cables (speakers), inputs from Tape Deck, VCR and other input devices), sub-woofers, rear speakers all. Except the AC power cord. Then turn it ON and see if it stays on. If it still has the same problem, then most probably your power circuit inside the receiver has a problem - like a shorted Capacitor or diode etc. Based on how technical you can be and what resources and time you want to spend, this is repairable. But based on the price of a receivers these days, it is not worth. Good Luck!

Won't Power On...

Hello degaff, This is what I would do to try to determine the problem: 1. Disconnect everything from the receiver. The only thing connected should be the power cord. Make sure the power cord is disconnected from power for at least 30 minutes in order to reset the internal electronic software. 2. Then, power it up - still nothing else connected. If it powers up normally and "looks" like it is going to work, then turn it off and connect only the right speaker to its amplifier and try again. If it still looks normal, then turn it off and connect the DVD or CD player and run some music through that speaker. If it still looks normal, then shut it off and connect the left speaker, etc... In other words go one-by-one in checking it out. 3. If it does NOT power up after step ONE, then there is a problem internally. If it powers up only to shut down again, there is still a hardware problem internally. The usual cause is shorted output transistors. And the normal cause of shorted outputs is a short on the speaker line, a short inside one of the speakers or overdriving the amplifier for too long a period of time. If the outputs need replaced, then it will cost an arm and a leg to get them repaired, and you are better off replacing the unit. The clicking sound, by the way, is the power relay which turns the power transformer on. And if there are faults in the amp, speakers or wiring, the protection circuit shuts the relay off; that is the clicking sound you hear. Please let us know how this works, and if we can help you any further. Best regards, nightdiver
