Question about Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver
It goes on standby mode and the light started blinking when I turn the volume above 60. Also when upconverting my dvd player to my LCD 1080P Samsung.
Your receiver is basically going into protect mode.
The SR 605 contains a microcomputer for signal processing and control functions. In an unlikely event, it may cause it to lock up. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait for 10 to15 seconds and then plug it back again.
Please also check your speaker cabling again. Make sure that all of them are seated properly, none is touching each other or the body of receiver. Take out all the wire and put them back again if necessary..
Some times even a little tiny frayed wire touching the receiver could trigger the protect mode. Be careful, since protect mode is sometimes not fast enough and it could blown a few trasistors in the power circuit.
Just check your speaker as well....whether they play all right thru another receiver or amplifier. its posiible they might be shorting inside. A little frayed wire could also trigger the protect circuit in your receiver.
I hope this should solve your problem. If you still can’t resolve the issue yourself, try resetting
the AV receiver/AV amplifier before going on to opening the Receiver.
To reset the Receiver to its factory defaults, turn it on and, while holding the [VCR/DVR] button, press the [STANDBY/ON] button. "Clear" will appear on the display and the Receiver will enter Standby mode. (note that resetting your receiver will delete your custom settings as well as your radio presets).
If everything else seems all right and still your receiver shut down when you raise the volume then it possible that there are bad connections on the main board that are set in.
This would generally happen if the system is slighly old or have dry solder and when you raise up the volume. This should be a simple repair that will not require parts. If you can solder, you will be able to repair this yourself. If not, then a local service center will change the local labor rate.
Hope you can sort out your problem with the above trouble shooting. Let me know if I can guide you further.
Best of luck. Thanks for using FixYa!
