This receiver is likely to be overheating or has a shorted speaker wire. If the unit is very warm when it shuts down then it is in need of some additional ventilation. Onkyo's tend to run hot so this is critical for proper operation. A speaker wire problem could also cause an issue when the unit detecs a no load situation.

Have noise on left back speaker channel of onkyo 606 blocking sound from movies etc


Hi Brendan, have you swapped the speaker from the left channel to the right one so that we can be sure that it is not the speaker? You can also try a hard reset:

To do the reset you need to turn the receiver on, then on the front panel of the receiver press and hold the "VCR/DVR" button while doing that press the "STANDBY/ON" button. You will see the word "Clear" in the display screen and the receiver will go into standby mode. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR AUDIO & VIDEO ASSIGNMENTS ON THE RECEIVER PLUS YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR SPEAKER CONFIGURATIONS, SPEAKER DISTANCE AND ALL LEVEL CALIBRATION SETTINGS. YOU WILL ALSO LOSE ANY PROGRAMMED RADIO STATIONS IN MEMORY. Once the receiver goes into standby mode turn it back on and go thru the setup menu for all custom settings.

Sony receiver STR-AV460 stuck in standby mode and don't have remote to change it. Not sure how in got switched to standby mode, but need to get it out of this mode.


Try to unplug the AC cable from the wall for a while. However this may erase some recent programming, despite Sony AV receivers have memory enough to keep programs. Hope this may help.

Onkyo TX-SR605 - Suddenly switches itself off and back on


HI, this is a reset procedure that this unit is trying to initiate. there has been a surge of some sort that the system has survived but, there is some lasting damage as well that has resulted in a slight programming error within the mother board.

This unit has a program that was installed at the manufacture. it runs the basic operations. there has been some major damage that is causing the internal program to stall and reset itself. the only way to reprogram is to send it back to the manufacture or, you can locate a local repair depot through Onkyo. the Onkyo techs are the only option when re programing is needed.
