Won't turn on.


Yes BUT there is also high voltages both with and WITHOUT the unit connected to an A.C. plug. If you decide to check fuses, and you find one that is blown, PLEASE use ONLY the original value fuse.

Similar situation as previously described with the Denon AVR-1508, but mine will shut off after about 10-12 minutes the first time around and then ~2 minutes after it is turned off and then back on. Unit...


Most new receivers have a fan on the back, if you have one check to make sure it is working, most won't activate until the unit gets warm, other issues are bad solder connections on the audio outputs causing intermittent shutdown, as a final inspection check speaker connections to the receiver and speakers.

Where are the fuses in the harman kardon 3380 receiver, I had a lightning strike which I think knocked out my receiver thru my outdoor speakers, it will not turn on, could it be a fuse and if yes, where is...


Hello Randy,
There are two options here: first, the power button is amber but unit still won't go. In this case try a 'factory reset' as per manual. If this won't work, it seems that the processor is gone (located on the display board) so you have to bring your unit into a authorized shop for repairs. Secondly, it might be just matter of some blown fuses which are located inside the unit on the transformer board. If after replacing (if they're blown) the unit still won't work or keeps blowing the new fuses, follow the first advice, meaning you have to bring the receiver to a service. To access the fuses, you have to remove the top cover.I wish you luck

My stereo sysytem is a mini stereo: serial number 10200055. It currently says "protect", what is this and how do we return our system to normal operations?


Hi there,

When the word PROTECT appears on this display, this means the unit has detected a critical fault which could potentially cause harm to your stereo system.

The most common cause is a short circuit somewhere - something even as simple as loose speaker wiring could cause a short, triggering the Protect message.

You will need to determine if there is a possible short somewhere, so I recommend you start by firstly turning power OFF, disconnecting all speaker wires, then turn unit back ON.

Operate the stereo (without speakers) and turn volume up:
  • If Protect message appears when turning volume up, then stereo unit itself has an internal fault
  • If no Protect message appears, then suspect the speakers may be causing the issue.
  • Reduce volume and turn unit OFF
Re-connect speakers (ensure the connections are secure), turn unit ON:
  • If turning volume up triggers the Protect message again, there is an issue with the speakers or connections

Hope this helps.....

Since our downstairs circuit tripped due to an oven heating element fault, my Yamaha HTR-5740 won't turn on. The unit was not on at the time and the power supply is working fine.


it is possible that the standby power supply circuit has become defective in the receiver...this power supply supplies power to the remote control and microprocessor even when the unit is off...this is so it can pickup the remote signal when needed...this supply consists of a small transformer and associated regulation components...it may be possible that the power surge sent when the element overheated n kicked the breaker that the small transformer may have an open primary..or it may just be a fuse for this supply...you can remove the cover of the unit and look at the small glass fuses...you may have to remove them to see if they are defective...remember to only remove them one by one as you do not want to put them back in the wrong place...if it's not a fuse..then more likely the transformer has opened up...you will need to have the unit serviced by a qualified service person

My rx-6000v acts like every thing is fine but can not get any sound. not even out of earphone jack. got any ideas?


It sounds like this unit is in protect mode. See hte link below for more info on that. One thing to check: turn the unit on paying particular attention to any clicking that you hear. You should hear an initial click as the unit turns on followed a few seconds later by another one. The second click is the speaker protection relay. If you don't hear the second click, then the unit is likely in protect mode. Feel free to post additional questions after review of the link information below.

Onkyo TX-DS777 goes straight to protection mode


Hello.You have shorted audio outputs. One of your channels has shorted output transistors. If your unit uses output ICs then one of them is shorted. Both types ( individual transistors or ICs ) are located on the large finned heat sink. The parts are available from http:\\www.tritronicsinc.com. good luck

Pioneer VSX-D409 - Remote Control Problem Hello. I'm from Brazil and I have a 12 years old Pioneer VSX-D409 Receiver. My problem is related to the page 16 and 17 of the Owner's Manual. I'm trying to do the steps to Set up the surround mode, changing some settings and the type of connection I use to delivers sound to receiver, using optical cables. Well... I just cannot enter this mode, the surround setting mode. At this moment I'm hearing the sound from a FM station on the speakers. But just this function works. Tuner, wiht FM station. The remote control works only to: - Turn on or off the receiver. - Change the volume level. - Set the loudness function (on or off). - Change the function of the receiver (to select Tuner, DVD, TV or other device in, but I don't gain access to change some specs like distance, speakers volume levels or type of connection of each device). And nothing more. The remote control has seven buttons on the top: DVD/LD, TV/SAT, VCR/DVR, CD, TUNER, CD-R/TAPE/MD and TV CONT. According to the source device you want to use, you just press the button and the receiver selects the IN connection (coaxial or optical or just the Tuner to listen FM stations) and reproduces the audio. Until last week, anytime I press this button, the source device was selected. But, of course, I didn't use all of them. Just two: TV SAT and DVD. Why? This receiver has two optical IN units on its backside. I have two optical cables connected in the receiver. Optical 1 is connected to a PS3 and Optical 2 is connected to a SmarTV. Before my hollyday's trip, all the connections were allright. But not today!! The problem is: I do not have access to the process to change the type of connection that is assigned to the device I've choosen. I want to do this: TV/SAT --> OPT1 (to the audio from PS3); DVD --> OPT2 (to the audio from Smartv); The process is described at the page 16 to 21 of the owner's manual. But, it doesn't starts. Seems my remote control just forgeted how to do this or is blocked in another function. I don't know how to fix it and need some tip or help. Thank You! :)
