Receiver Shuts Off Only When TV Input Is Used

This problem just started happening a few days ago.  When I turn the receiver on and if the TV input is selected, I get a display message saying "Ck Speaker Wire" and then the unit shuts itself off.  What I do net get is that if I have the input selector on Tuner or CD, the receiver is fine and does not shut off.  Any thoughts/solutions?  Thanks!

I think your Receiver is going into protection mode. This happens especiaally when speaker cables are not connected properly. They are either loose or are touching each other or to the body of the receiver or the speaker ha blown.

You are lucky that it has not blown any transistor of your Receiver.

Please immidiately disconnect all your speakers cables and the cable form the mian.
Reconnect only the cable from the main and try to select the TV, it will switch on. If it switch on then you can be sure it were the speaker cables.

Now power off, main cable off, put all the speaker cables back and see if the everything all right.
If you still have a problem, let me know we can futher trouble shoot.
Best of Luck.

Phono input only plays one speaker and receiver shuts down after playing record for a few minutes


are you using a phonograph with a built-in preamp? If so, then you need to hook it up to a different input. Phono input is only for non-amplifier phonographs, otherwise you will over-drive the amp.

Hmdi input has lost audio


several things could cause that:
1. hdmi cable is no good.
2. receiver and TV are not fully compatible. I noticed few times that philips tvs had problems with denon receivers. Some times you need o unplug hdmi cable and plug it in back to get sound.
3. firmware issue. depends on model of your receiver there could be a software upgrade to resolve the problem.
4. somebody (kids) accidentally pressed some buttons and reassigned video input for that video source (video select button on a remote control), etc. Resetting the receiver usually helps.
5 Receiver (hdmi board is no good) or TV is no good.
so next time when it happens check video source, video input assign then try to swap hdmi cable and TV

Will shut off completely even bypassing standby mode after about 10 minutes of tv input with the new samsung 3d led tv. this does not happen with other equipment such as the cd player. all cables are...


Hi, This sounds very interesting.
Here is what I would do.
1 I would, if you haven't done this already, connect the samsung into a different input. If you have a Video Input for a Laser Disk Player or VCR use the composite (yellow) from the DVD and analog left and right through the same. See what happens.
Additionally if your receiver has a "phono" input DO NOT USE THAT. It is super sensitive. Phono requires around 5/1000th of a volt for full output. Where as the CD, Aux, VCR and others require 1 volt for full output. An input overload condition will occur. That can shut down the receiver.
If you are having your receiver shut down with the samsung TV attached to a high level input, then the fault is definitely with the TV. It is defective. In this case contact samsung.
Here's the link

Hope this helps.

Every time I turn my Yamaha RX-V565 on it switches to the AV1 input instead of staying on the HDMI input that it was on when I turned it off.


Set your TV, Sattellite receiver and audio where you want it when you turn on the set. Then hit the Scene button named "TV" and hold it down till the yamaha receiver says set complete and it will turn on to HDMI 2

a panasonic tv will shut down after a short time with no video input. it sounds like the setup menu in the receiver has defaulted and needs to be setup again to coordinate the audio and video signals. ive seen many yamaha menus default. dont let geeks in your house.

Onkyo TX-SR605 conected to Mitsubishi DLP TV


What I think I did and how I fixed it!

FACTORY RESET ON EVERYTHING!



All you have to do is to do a factory reset on everything, but I thing mostly on your 605, but I would do it on the TV as well. I think what had happened is after I set everything up for the first time, it worked great. As the days when on I started to play with all of the futures the 605 and the TV had to offer. I was turning them on and off to see what everything did. What I think I did was, I turned on something in the 605 that the TV did not know how to cope with. If I had to guess, I think it is the Lip-sink feature (Spelling?) in the 605.

Anyway disconnect everything, look in your manuals of the TV and the 605 to see how to do the factory reset on both. Then turn your TV on. After it does it’s start up for the first time (again), start connecting the 605.

It has been working great for me after I did this. Do not count on help from the people you bought it from or the people who made it. This stuff is so new they do not really know how to fix it.

Volume turned to MAX for almost no sound from record player


You will need to purchase small box that converts your phono magnetic cartridge level output to a higher line input level before it goes into the TV input jack. Radio Shack used to sell a small amp for about $20 that was made just for that purpose and was called a stereo pre-amplifier and was model number SPA-50 and it plugged into the standard wall outlet to get power. Back in the "old" days when phono magnetic cartridges first became popular some of the older home stereos had only the ceramic phono style inputs (or an aux. input) which were about the same input level as a tape input or aux. input (or TV input) and so you would have to use one of these adapters to boost the newer magnetic cartridge signal up to the same level as a ceramic cartridge in order to use a new style of phono. This will fix your problem if you can find one at Radio Shack or some other place, perhaps on the internet. Hope this helps you.

Need help connecting Receiver to TV, DVD, VCR players


Take the audio outputs on the TV set and connect up to the The video 1 inputs to the receiver, BUT use the audio part of the video 1 input and leave the yellow video input blank. Now turn on the TV set, put the TV set on a channel, turn on the receiver and select the video 1 input and you should have the TV audio coming from the receiver. Good Luck.
