Unit turns itself off after diplaying code "check SP wire"

We were watching TV last night wheni changed the channel via the cable remote, 30 seconds after i changed the channel the unit displayed "check SP wire" then shut off. We repeated the same sequence of events several times. We checked all the wiring plugged into the unit and it was correctly installed. Is this repairable? possible board component malfunction? nut behind the wheel problem? please advise

My guess, guess, check CLOSELY the SPeaker wires - "Check SP wire" make sure all of the bare portion of the wire is into the terminal. No bare wire touching another bare wire both at the receiver and at the speakers. Also, if the wiring is not continuous, check all connections of speaker wire. Disconnect all but one, play it like that. If no problem, label that as good, disconnect another for several days, when one shuts Rec. off, check wires closely for that speaker.

Why is my remote control not working despite changing the batteries.


Not sure if this will help but, I recently put an antenna on the roof of my house. I don't watch TV much but wanted to enjoy some TV, but my remote locked up and the side buttons on the TV wouldn't work either. I tried changing the battery, but no luck. There's a broadcast station 64.2 that is locking up TV's & remotes. Here's the fix that a TV repair co. gave me which did break the lock of the station 64.2.

1) unplug antenna (not roof but connection from TV to wall)
2) unplug and plug back in TV
3) find a way via remote or side buttons to scan channels
4) Go to Menu
5) EZ Setup
6) Channel Set Up-Scan Channels
7) Channel Memory
8) Digital Set Up
9) Turn Skip On for 64.2 (Delete this Channel)
10) Turn off TB
11) Hook Antenna back

You may have to play with the order to acheive the end result or figure out a way to delete 64.2, but during the process you will at least unlock from being stuck on 64.2.

Good Luck if this was the same issue!

This problem never happened before , We on the tv and the channels keep changing by it self . We are not touching any buttons and we even tried offing the tv and switching the power off . Each time we on...


As a test, block its (or the cable Box's) remote infrared sensor so even you can't change the channels with a remote. Then watch and wait. If it keeps happening, you have a poltergeist or a defective unit.

If not, something out 'there' is emitting infrared signals that the unit interprets as channel commands. Find the remote someone is sitting on or that guy across the street who's aiming at your TV with HIS remote.

I have onkyo receiver model number TX-SR705. the problem is when I turn on the receiver. it kill the sound to my television. this happens all the time. I have try using onkyo receiver manual.


CERTIFIED TV EXPERT HERE, follow this information I provided 3 long solutions to this issue/s Solution 1 Before we start taking things apart, lets try your simple remove power plug routine and power system back up. Also, please try your unit on a few different channels to see if your problem continues on each channel. Your Main Board, Power Board, T-Control Board are suspected problems at this time. Press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds, the unit should power down by itself after you have powered it on. If it does not, then do not be concerned. Let me know if the problem continues. The first link below will bring you directly to the troubleshooting guide if you need to continue forward with the same error. Additional information http://www.fixya.com/support/r5093881-lcd_flat_panel_tv_troubleshooting_guide Failed TV and Monitors: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague Parts: www.shopjimmy.com 2 Lets focus on the external portion of the TV set first (95 percent of all TV problems are related to things EXTERNAL To the tv itself) Check the physical CONNECTION of all cables by removing each wire bare or RCA and reinstalling it (Each power cable as well), once you have removed one cable, check it for fraying, and if it is already bare, splice a new fresh connection for it. 5. Check to make sure there are NO OTHER uneeded radios, system nearby. these systems, when powered on, will cause electromagnetic interference and prevent more than just severe tv interference SURGE PROTECTOR Surge protectors account for more than 75 percent of electric faults to stereo equipment. Lets start with your AC Wall outlet. It is standard in america that 220 Volts from out of these outlets. This implies that each device will be using 220 Volts (From within that grid zone). If anything including an alarm clock is plugged into any AC outlet socket in the vicinity of the stereo equipment/TV, it will cause electric outage, and prevent electronics from even turning on! Your TV needs dedicated electric power. If your TV is located in the living room then unplug everything else in the living room. Lets plug the TV set into a Dedicated socket. Check all light switches to ensure that power is on for that outlet. Check the TV cable for Fraying both on the ac wall end and where it plugs into the TV. Check all GFCI outlets to ensure that all red reset buttons are pushed in, check the circuit breakers for proper connection and they are turned on. Now, lets try the TV set without it connected to any cable services, vcr, dvd, stereo system, etc. Please respond if we have found a solution. 3 When troubleshooting these units, there are always several variables to consider. First check to see what last occurred with the unit such as did the children play video games, did the electricity go out due to bad weather. You may see that there are many possibilities but let's focus on what occurred last to the unit. Once we determine what happened last, we may isolate the actual cause of the problem. The actual cause may be associated with projection issues, older versions (Picture tube), interference from devices located nearby, and even a radio turned on and located really close to your unit. This is normally known as electromagnetic interference to electronics and is very common with the error you have provided today. Please continue to look for anything EXTERNAL to the unit before looking at the internal components. I have been working on these a long time so feel free to follow up with me

My cable tv remote will turn this unit on with the codes supplied for the remote. But the remote will not control the volume or turn the unit off. Is there another code, or is this a problem with the cable...


There has to be another code and when you find it you will probably have to "lock" your remotes volume control to your audio device not the cable box (set-up that way from cable co) once you do that the cable box will be controlled from the remote(channels) and the audio will be controlled by your receiver from the same remote without even having to switch functions.. ask your cable company for a setup guide for your remote they will probably have a copy online.

sounds like you have the polairity reversed on the speakers

check polairity also make sure unit is well ventelated
you wouldnt use your compouter if it was inside a card board box
so make sure the reciever can breath also
recievers get too hot and they start blowing chips off the board

Yamaha 5.1 says Check SP Cable and shuts down - has been fine.


It has nothing to do with the input you choose. A speaker wire is shorted. Disconnect each one in turn and try it. The last one disconnected before it stops failing is the one.

My Yamaha HTR-6050 shuts off at random times and says "Check SP Cable"


That is a check the speaker wire error, caused by a short or perceived short. If you look at the back of the receiver you may see 1 strand of the wire loose, they are very hard to see sometimes. You may use banana plugs as it is painful to get everything hooked up without a few loose strands.

If there is still the issue check your speaker connections for the same issue. If they are in ceiling/wall speakers disconnect them all then plug them in one at a time to narrow it down.

If the issue persists perhaps one of your speaker wires has a short somewhere, could be a misplaced drywall screw from hanging a picture, or a carpet tack strip, or a pet deciding it was a nice chew toy.

If you are completely sure it is none of those then I would say it is a bad speaker or receiver. Try changing in and out known good speakers/receivers if you have access to them to see which one it is.

Good luck

No Sound, but it worked last night.


Is the dvd built into the unit? Im not sure. If your comfortable with the wiring behind the unit I can try and help you out. Im guessing your just using plain cable that your running to your tv. If so you should have a audio output in the back of your tv (the red and white one) there should be a RCA cable into this output (best buy would have installed it already). follow this cable down to the back of the Reciever and it should be plugged into the input for TV. Your Consols are a little more difficult. They can run them through your tv or bypass it. Ill tell you how to put them through your tv so that the sound from them will only come when the tv is on (not sure when else you would need it). The back of you consols you will have the 3 RCA's (red, white, Yellow) plug them into the back of your tv in the input ports... Playstation to 1, Wii to 2. There should be all the jacks needed to do this (if you have a newer tv). Now when you turn on your tv and make sure the reciever is turned to TV your should get your sound. Try the gaming consols, they should both work (you will need to switch the Tv to video input, usually by the source button). If you still get no sound but pictures try turning your volume up on the tv, if you have volume there check your settings on the tv for the volume output...some brands allow you to mute this. Hope this helps
