Reciever shuts off

When I turn my receiver up to about half, it clicks and then the sound goes out. It doesn't shut off, the sound just goes out. This is with 2 speakers hooked up. When I have 1 speaker hooked up, it's perfectly fine.

You may have a loose wire in the back, your receiver is going into protection mode.

Hi there

May I ask how many watts can your reciever handle ? And how many watts does your speakers need in order to be powered up (input). The two speakers you have installed might be too powerful for your reciever to handle. You might have to down grade to less powered speakers. All in all you have an excellent product there good choice...

HTR-5280 Receiver Fuse Blown


the fuse rating should be printed at the back near the fuse holder itself. If it opens the fuse again and again probably you have a circuit loading problem in the receiver...either one of the amps is failing.

Denon AVR 3600 sound gone


this happened to me once and I found that my reciever would just shut down. make sure that you have plenty of space above the amp. it may be over heating and shutting down on you and when it cools down, it turns back on. there will most likely the "overload" light will be lit when it shuts down the audio.

hope that helps

The reciever just shuts down


The manual suggests disconnecting inputs and outputs and power, letting it sit for an hour, then plugging it back in and turning volume to max to see if it still shuts off. If it does, the problem is with the unit. If it doesn't, the problem is elsewhere.

Judging from some other sites, this is a common problem. If you take it to a dealer, suggest they check the AC input. Before anything else, make sure that there are no stray wires on your speakers connecting the positive and negative clips, which will cause a short and activate the amp protection.

I had the same problem with an Onky502 and replaced it today with an Onkyo606. It worked fine for an hour then started shutting off automatically. I'm following the manual and letting it cool off now for an hour, and meantime I'll check my speakers.

Should I just Buy a new one?


You have a bad power supply or the audio output circuit has a short in it. You are correct by saying its probably betterv off getting a new unit. Most likly cost you more then a brand new shiny unit would . Good Luck PS Please do not forget to rate this thread
