Dear Tabasco,

Your receiver is basically going into protect mode.

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. 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 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!

SOURCE: MY vsx-820 receiver shuts off

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.

Onkyo Tx NR626 receiver cooling fan does not run. Normal or not? Does chassis to need to reach certain point before it comes on?


most cooling fans in receivers only come on when they are needed. Some turn on at higher volume levels, others will not turn on until the unit gets too hot.

Washer not filling to rinse


It's underfilling The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

The system will shut off once the volume reaches a certain level. The system will not get really loud.

IF ALL YOUR WIRES ARE RAN ALREADY GO INTO SPEAKER SETTING GO TO SPEAKER CONF, WITH RADIO PLAYING, AND START RAISING Hz IF ITS A SPEAKER CABLE PROBLEM IT SHOULD CUT OFF WHEN UR RAISING THAT SPEAKER Hz.

My receiver shuts off at a certain volume saying check wire


Here are a couple of common causes for this... You may indeed have a wiring issue between the receiver and speaker(s) - i.e. wire damage causing the conductors to touch each other (look for wire problems at the back of the receiver or speaker(s) right where the wire connects to the device). Also check for physical damage like pinched wire, damaged or missing insulation, etc. The speaker(s) could be damaged (possibly from excessive power/volume levels). If these are not the problem, the cause may be the receiver itself. Try disconnecting one speaker at a time and running the volume back up to see if the receiver shuts off. This may help isolate a specific wire/speaker to check.

Disconnect all speaker wires at the receiver then turn it back on and the volume up. If it stays on, post a comment and I can walk you thru troubleshooting. If it still shuts down there is an internal problem and it needs to be serviced.
