Question about Onkyo TX-DS787 Receiver
Just purchased an Onkyo AV Receiver TX-SR506 and had it set up professionally in conjunction with a new TV and surround sound.
It performed beautifuuly for three days then after an hour of operation it turned off automatically.
Tried turning on - turned its self off within about 4 to 5 seconds. this happened over and over.
I let it stand for an hour or so then turned it back on - it then turned itself off after about 5 minutes........I turned it on again- turned itself off in 4 - 5 seconds.
Is it possible that I allowed inadequate height for ventilation ?.....I had allowed 45 mm on top of unit but have now increaed to 90 mm.
I am now waiting a while (and holding my breath) before turning it on again.
Would much appreciate your advice.
The space you have provided should be enough. If this is a new unit and still under warranty, I would request warranty service. It sounds like the unit is entering protect mode. This may be due to heat or it could be because of a defect in the protect circuit. In any case, this should not happen that quickly.
Update this if not under warranty and I'll provide a list of diagnostic tests to help determine the problem.
