It says protect on the front screen

My onkyo stereo reciever blew a fuse, we replaced it. It made a popping noise, we tried it again, the power does work on it now but it goes back to saying "protect" on the front screen.

An amplifier goes into protect when it detects a load with too low an impedance. If it displays protect with no speakers connected at all, the amplifier is damaged. If not, reconnect speakers one at a time (while the amp is off!) to determine the cause of the fault.

It may be as simple as a single strand of copper wire shorting between the positive and negative terminals of a connection.

Onkyo sound popping / protected shows in the display


It depends on what happened to the receiver. Have you tried to connect up the unit to the wall socket yet, without the Monster power strip? If that does not help you, and the unit still gets pops and goes into protect mode, you have an issue with one of the output stages in the amp. I'm afraid that this type of repair can only be diagnosed by a tech who knows how to trouble shoot solid state amplifiers. You may also contact Monster cable, as if you can get the tech to agree with you on the cause of the problem, most of the Monster Cable power strips come with a warranty against this problem from happening and will pay for the repair. Good Luck

I replaced an inline power fuse inside of my Onkyo reciever, power returned and now I have no output to main speakers and the unit flashes back and fourth between regular display and protect. ?????


THE GOAL HEAR IS TO DETERMINE IF THE INSTALLATION IS CAUSING YOUR PROTECTION FAULT OR IS IT THE RECEIVER ITSELF HAVING INTERNAL DAMAGE. REMOVE THE RCA INPUTS AND DISCONNECT THE SPEAKERS, THEN POWER THE AMPLIFIER UP WITH THIS NO INPUT, NO SPEAKER LOAD CONDITION. IF IT STILL GOES INTO PROTECTION, THEN THE RECEIVER WILL NEED TO BE SERVICED, AS YOU HAVE TOTALLY SIMULATED A BENCHED CONDITION THAT IS TOTALLY INDEPENDENT OF YOUR INSTALLATION. MOST TIMES, THE RECEIVE WILL GO INTO PROTECTION WHEN IT SEES AN EXCESSIVE LOAD WHEN TURNING UP THE VOLUME, WHICH IS USUALLY CAUSED BY TOO MANY SPEAKERS OR DAMAGED SPEAKERS, BUT IF NO SPEAKERS CONNECTED, THEN IT IS USUALLY BECAUSE THE RECEIVER SEES AN EXCESSIVE LOAD DUE TO ITS OUTPUT SECTION BEING DAMAGED. IN ANY CASE, ONCE REPAIRED, YOU MUST CHECK YOUR SPEAKERS FOR BURNED VOICE-COILS, WHICH WILL IMPOSE AN EXCESSIVE LOAD TO THE AMPLIFIER AND CAN CAUSE IT TO FAIL AGAIN. ALSO, BE CAREFUL ABOUT HOW MANY TIMES YOU KEEP TURNING IT ON OR OFF, AS AT LEAST ONE TIME, THE PROTECTION CIRCUIT DID NOT DETECT IT IN TIME AND THAT IS WHY THE FUSE BLEW. ALSO, DO NO REPLACE THE FUSE WITH A LARGER FUSE. YOU DO NOT WANT TO SEE THE POWER SUPPLY ALSO GET DAMAGED, AS THIS WILL DEFINITELY ADD TO THE COST OF THE REPAIR. LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED FURTHER ASSISTANCE.....V

I am stationed in Iraq; I have a Onkyo TX-SR606 7.1 Channels Receiver that was plugged into a 220VAC outlet; it blew the 10amp 125 Volt fuse on the board; no fuses available here; is it safe to say the...


I would say : NO !
The fact tha the fuse blew wasn't because the voltage was too high, but because a component (after the fuse) became defective because of the high voltage. So there will be something defective....

Power will not stay on


Activated protection circuitry means that the amplifier is seeing conditions it does not like and is shutting down the power to prevent further damage.
Either you have a short in your speaker wires, in your speakers, or a blown amplifier.
Disconnect both speakers and turn on the amplifier. Does it still give the error message? If it does, your amp is blown. If it does not, carefully inspect your speaker wires and their connection. Make sure all looks good and reconnect the speakers and try it again. Still get the error message? You likely have a problem in your speaker cabinet(s).

Fuse blew on power now stuck in Protection Mode


Sounds like the out put stage of the amp is shorting, They are either 4 large transistors attached to an aluminium plate (heatsink) or one large chip with heatsink. also sounds as the driver stage went too when you switched it on the second time. If you know nothing of electronics I suggest you take it to an audio repair shop, as it is cheaper to repair than replace high power amplifiers.

Onkyo digital reciever has poping noise when in dolby sound


I have the same reciever, and had the same problem.  Contact Onkyo, this is a known issue where defective DSP chips were used and manifest problems with a popping / clicking sound when using surround settings.  These receivers also have a Dolby Digital input issue that can cause audio dropouts when watching cable or SAT broadcasts that encode DD using a 'newer' broadcast encoding methods.  Onkyo is covering the cost of that repair for me now, even though the receiver is 5 years old now....

Oven blew a fuse


The POP sound normally indicates a short circuit fault (as opposed to overload) you need to have it looked at by a competent person.
