Question about Onkyo TX-SR304 Receiver
Onkyo tx-sr304 got slightly wet. I immediately turned the power off, unplugged it, disconnected all the wires, removed the top plate/encasement, dried it with a hair dryer and waited 1 hour. Following the instruction manual, plugged just the power cord in, turned it on and set the volume to max. It stayed on about 3 seconds then the protection/ standby kicked on. What next or is it even worth it?

SOURCE: Onkyo TX-SV434 "Protect" light
The protect mode is a built in safety message, indicating that theres a fault somewhere with-in the unit, and it wont let the unit come on fully or more damage will occour. This unit is a solid state device, and you should not attempt to use it or open it or try any self repair as it will cause more damage. If this unit is more then a few years old , it might just be the time to start looking around at all the back to school sales on electronics, as to have this unit serviced will cost an estimate fee as well as parts and labor. If you want to invest a few bucks into this machince , then go for it, but its most likly will cost 1/2 or more then the cost of the entire unit did when it was new to have it repaired. It is up to you. Good Luck

The problem is not with the inputs. This unit is in protect because a problem has been detected in the output section. Try disconnecting the speaker wires and turning it on. If the unit remains on, there is a short in one of the speaker wires. If the unit still shuts down, there is an internal problem that will require repair. It sounds like this is a new piece. If so, it should be covered under warranty.
Keep us posted,

This sounds like the action of some protection circuit that is monitoring some condition or voltage that isn't within its design limits. If it was mine, I'd look for an Onkyo forum to see if others have experienced the same problem.
