Question about Onkyo TX-SR304 Receiver
Got slightly wet. Turned power off, unplugged it, disconnected all the wires, removed the top encasement, dried it with a hair dryer even though it didn't appear wet inside. Following the manuel waited 1 hour turned it on set volume to max and the protection keeps turning it off. What can I do next if anything and is it worth the effort.

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,

North American models are all set to 6 ohms. You can't switch the setting.
Try reconnecting the speaker wire into the back of the unit. This worked for me.

Does it display any message like "Protect" or something similar? Do you hear a relay click on then off?
Did the amp just not power up one day or did it stop working while you were listening to it? Finally, do you have teenage kids who might have been listening to your receiver and would have "neglected" to tell you that after listening to their music it suddenly stopped working?
It could be an internal fuse but chances are its something that requires a technician to repair (like the output transistors).

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.
