My onkyo tx-sr800 powers up and just when you think there should be sound it cuts off. whats up with that??

Sounds like it is failing its self test so it won't try to power anything. First step would be to disconnect the speakers, turn the volume control all the way down, then power it up. If it comes up OK, then you've got a wiring issue or a short in one of the speakers. If it still doesn't come up OK, then there is an internal issue in the circuitry - most likely the power amp, any you'll need professional repair help.

I have a onkyo tx-sr506 receiver that turns it self off

This unit is in protect mode. This means that a problem was detected and the unit has shutdown to prevent further damage. The most common cause of this is failed output transistors. Plan on $20-$40 for parts for this repair.

I just hooked up my old Onkyo TX-8511 receiver to my bose speakers, which is also hooked up to a subwolfer. When I turn the volume up the system goes into protect mode. Any solutions.

Just check your speaker cabling again. Make sure that all of them are seated properly, none is touching each other or the body of receiver. Rewire if necessary..
Are you using banana plugs for connecting speaker or just directly. Some times even a little tiny 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.

Otherwise, do your bose speakers play out load on other systems?
