Question about Onkyo TX-DS989 Receiver
I have a TX DS-989 Onkyo receiver that I have had for about 14 years. It has worked flawlessly until now. Suddenly, after exercising the amp a couple nights ago (music was loud), it will no longer turn on. It did not shut off when I was using it, but the next time i turned it on, it was not working. It powers on and shuts off immediately after the 3 second pause. I have read that this is an amplifier failure. Before I bring it in to get looked at, does anyone have any suggestions to try? I have already tried unplugging for an hour: no luck. Thanks!
Sorry but it does sound like an Amp failure and testing the unit for other electronic component failure will be needed

you have to get it fixed. same thing happened to my onkyo reciever and they said it was a bad circuit. had to take it to an onkyo tech and have it replaced.

SOURCE: Onkyo TX-DS989 not staying on
This sounds like the action of some protection circuit that is monitoring some condition or voltage that isn't within its design limits. If it was mine, I'd look for an Onkyo forum to see if others have experienced the same problem.

Sounds like it's going in to safe mode. This can be caused by a number of things but the first thing to look at is a failed output amp.
