I have a onkyo HTR-410 receiver and when you turn it on it immediatley goes off i have looked it up in the trouble shooting guide and it says to contact a service center but i think there has got to be a cheaper solution for the problem

Most likely cause = loose/ dirty docking connector. Try a spray of wd40 on that.

Denon avr-1706 turns on, but then after start up goes immediately off. I also had similar problems with volume turned up too loud turning off the entire unit. What can be done?


Continuously stressing it with loud volume has succeeded in making an intermittent problem int a solid one.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on; or it may turn on but produce no audio to the speakers.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'nekkid'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as another possible root cause for intermittent shutdown.

Unpluged unit and left for 30 days vacation. When I returned plugged unit in and stayed on for a few minutes then shutdown. Now unit comes on but goes into stanby after a few seconds. What is the problem?

My unit is shutting itself off. I can turn it on and then it shuts itsself off. After several times of doing this it finally won't turn on until I let it rest and then it still will turn itself off.

The receiver turns on and immediately goes to standby


The unit is going into protect mode. Lets hope it has done the job and the receiver has protected itself from failure.
Protect mode can result from speaker wires touching each other or the Amps metal case. Check that first.
It can also be caused by unstable ohm loads if too many speakers are connected to any of the outputs especially zone 2.
If you can remove all speaker wires and turn the unit back on. If it stays on, turn the volume down on the main zone and zone 2 if connected. Then reconnect speaker wires.

Standby light stays red and will not turn unit on.


Try to reset the macroprocessor. Unplug the unit from AC, hold both buttons SPEAKER A and SPEAKER B and plug the cord in outlet. After display flashes several times release the buttons. No result? - repair shop.

Onkyo ht-r530 goes off immediately after turning it on


While you are trying to turn it on, it is likely that it is cooling off. Thus you could get the same results by not trying to operate it but let it sit for about 10-15 minutes. Over heating is a common problem. If you have anything sitting on top of it or too close to it, such as another device that has heat of it's own, move it. Also, if you listen at loud volumes and/or are using inefficient speakers that will also make it run too hot and trip the thermal protection circuit. Turn off any equalization or "loudness" features or listen at a lower volume...may also want to get a small fan to run on it too.

It is not a fuse problem, when a fuse is gone does not start at all.
It is probably the final amp circuit, there is a faulty IC in there that overheats after few seconds and the unit goes off by itself.
