Question about Onkyo TX-SR500 Receiver
I recently had cable guy in to change cable box. As soon as he left I noticed the standby light blinking on the receiver. When I turn on the unit it does go on but within 5 seconds it just shuts off. I cannot get it to stay on. Did cable guy do something or forget to plug something in? I cannot see any loose wires? Any thoughts? Thanks for your help.
When it is on, does any audio come out of the speakers? If so, you may have a problem in the protection circuits. If no audio is heard, I would first check the speaker wires to make sure there are no strands shorting across the terminals, and that you have the it selected to output audio to the speakers -- Now also be sure to check the various inputs, for instance if it has a FM receiver, select that and see if any audio comes out then as well. I don't know what the cable guy could do other than knock loose a wire or change connections on you.
