Question about Denon AVR-1707 Receiver

Keeps shutting off


I recently moved my receiver and I must have switched on of the settings.  When I play it, it will shut off on its own after 3 or 4 seconds and then the light on the standby button will blink red.


Any thoughts?

Re: Keeps shutting off

HI Jt22,


I believe you have some speaker wires shorted.  Check your speaker wires.

Before my Onkyo receiver ht-r591 keeps clicking on/off rightnow is dead , won't power on at all ...Please Help!!!

Hi Markes,

It could be that there is a frayed speaker wire touching the back of the receiver and when playing at a low level the speakers do not require that much power, however when the level from the speakers increases more power is required and if there is a frayed speaker wire touching the back of the receiver there could be a short causing the receiver to shut down. A way to avoid the frayed wire is to use "Banana Connectors" that the speaker wires goes to and the connector will plug into the speaker posts. Please try the following to see where the issue is coming from. Have the receiver turned off, make sure all the speaker wires are labeled, and disconnect them from the speaker terminals. Turn the receiver on select a source that would give you sound if the speakers where still connected and turn the volume all the way up. If the receiver shuts down than it would need to go to a service center as it is an internal problem with it. If the receiver does not shut down, turn the volume down, shut the receiver off and connect one speaker and than turn the receiver on selecting the same source as before and raising the volume up. If the receiver shuts down, remove that speaker from the post and connect it to another speaker post to determine if it is the receiver or the speaker itself that is giving you the problem. If the receiver should shut down after moving that speaker you know it is a problem with the speaker or the wiring. If the receiver does not shut down, turn the volume down, shut the receiver off and connect another speaker followed by doing the previous test procedure. Keep adding speakers until you have them all reconnected to the receiver as long as it has not shut off while trying the test procedure. After determining whether it is the speakers or the receiver you would need to bring either to a service center to be repaired. To locate an authorized independent service center, check the dealer and service locator at our website: or

When playing dvd or or on video 3 playing a directv movie. Receiver keeps shutting off and the screen says protect. Seems to do it when the movie scene gets loud.

check your wires if there not touching behind the speakers and receiver. when it says protect this means something is shorting out or crossing over. one other thing it may be is if a speaker is starting to go bad. (please rate)

My yamaha receiver Kv-R1000 keeps shutting off.

Hi rpolanco
To answer your question;
First i`d like to know if there is a specific message on the front panel display before it shuts down.
One thing you can try at this time is to switch back and forth a couple of times the impedance selector switch at the back.
Another thing is to try to loosen up and re-tight all the screws at the back of the receiver(you`ll need a philips/star screwdriver) as the back panel is often used as ground for different circuits.
Try that and let me know about display messages.
I`ll be waiting for your answer

I have a recently purchased RS 2664 RCA shelf

If the wires got crossed and/or touched each other at all - that could certainly damage the amp(s).
Also - if the system is not made for extra speaker - that would change the ohmage - and that could aslo damage the amp(s)..

Or maybe the system designed to protect the amp(s) was damaged..

Hope this helps !!
Please rate me good ;o)

Denon AVR588 receiver auto shuts off

You may reset the unit to factory setting. Hold buttons "Speaker" and "SpeakerB"and turn on power switch. Release buttons after 5 seconds. You will loose all your setting and need to do configuration again.

Onkyo TX-DS575

I would check your wireing in the system end and just make sure nothing has loosened up over time this can happen even if you don't move the system. The only other thing I can think it maybe is the system is overheating and shutting down. When it does it again carefully feel around the system particularly the rear of the system if it is really hot it is probably shutting down. Is the cooling fan runnig?

Rx-V2400 Shut Down

Hi Seems like you have a shorted output channel, remove all your speaker connections and try again, if the problem persist, good chances are that you need to replace a couple of power transistors, let me know if you need more help, I've fixed some Yamaha amplifiers with this problem Good Luck Miguel

When I turn up the volume the receiver shuts down

You should first chech out all the speaker wires, the connections on back of the reciver, and on the speakers and make sure there are no little strands touching. If all thats good , disconnect all the speakers and see if the reciver still shuts down. If it does not, then there is a problem with the wiring or the speakers. If it does still shut down, im sorry to say that the move must have joggled something and there is a problem in the unit. Unfortantly, these are solid state units and have no user replaceable parts inside. It may not be worth repair due to the high cost these days for labor, but for sure see how much an estimate would be first. Good Luck Ps Please dont forget to rate this thread
