Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver
Just purchased the Onkyo TX-SR606. The whole unit turns off when the volume exceeds 39. Ive set the volume limit to 79 in the speaker settings.
North American models are all set to 6 ohms. You can't switch the setting.
Try reconnecting the speaker wire into the back of the unit. This worked for me.

Powering off usually points to issues with speaker setup. You should read pages 42 and 96 of the 606 manual.
Page 42 covers impedence settings. Check your impedence settings for your speakers. The 606 handles speakers from 4 to 16 ohms. There are two impedence settings on the 606 - 4 ohms and 6 ohms. Set to 4 ohms if your speakers are 4 ohms or more but less than 6 ohms. Set to 6 ohms if your speakers sit between 6 and 16 ohms. Incorrect settings can result in the 606 going into power protection after prolonged use or at higher volume.
Page 96 covers testing for unexpected power protection. You should switch off your AV at source and leave for an hour. Disconnect all cables to speakers and other peripherals (TV, DVD et al). After an hour turn on AV and turn volume to MAX, If the AV remains on, turn down volume to min, switch off AV and reconnect all devices. Make sure the speaker cables are properly connected and that no bare wiring is exposed.
Once you have done this switch on the AV and turn to volume to MAX. If the AV stays on then problem solved. If the AV switches off then you should contact your supplier.
