Home Theater Receiver keeps Shutting Down

I had an Onkyo Receiver for a short time and I believe it fried. So I got another receiver Yamaha and IT keeeps shuting off. I unlugged all speakers and actually everything. Then it is fine. As soon as I hook an HDMI cable or a digital optical cable from the Satelite box to it, thats when it starts to shut down again. I CANNOT figure for the life of me what is going on. This started with my Onkyo, but still persists with the Yamaha. I even swapped the sat. receiver. Chaned plug outlets. What could possibly cause this. Appreciate any help in figuring this out. Thanks, Al

    I Will try that. I can further explain, though, that by-passing the receiver with HDMI Or component and connecting directly to the tv from the SAT receiver works fine. I also went from the SAT to JUST the receiver and it clicks off. Totally weird. Volume also was turned down ( or off).The SAME HDMI cable works from SAT to TV so it shouldn't be the cable. I'm not a rocket scientist but this seems to make no. Especially when this same problem started with a new receiver and continues with This newer one.

    I just finally figured something out!! Unless specifics are needed, I can say this: I thought down in the negative volume meant no volume at all. With the speaker wires disconnected, it never it could put out dawned on me that there WAS volume. THIS is what I don't understand. Way down in the negative volume the receiver stays on. My older Yamaha never had that issue. These newer receivers have some kinda of touchy mechanics that make them shut down quickly with volume changes. I don't have all the speakers attached yet, but the volume still seems pretty low for what it should be. So there must be some settings that will somehow compensate for this. Maybe you DO need to be a rocket scientist after all.

Have you tried a different input on your TV? HDMI communicates both ways. You could have an issue with the input port on the TV. Try using Component. If you still have issues post a reply and we can dig further into it. Hope this helps

    If you have no speakers connected to the receiver, and you have an input source hooked up to it , ie. Sat, DVD, CD etc, and it is on, the signal passes to the receiver, when you turn up the volume it loads the transistors and amplifier section of the receiver. If there is an internal short the unit will go into protection. and say ck speakers. I have a hunch that it's one of three problems: a shorted speaker wire( if installed by builder as a pre-wire, a nail thru the wire or even a staple is not unheard of) or a bad speaker that when loaded up with current (volume) shorts and trips the receiver. Since you have had another receiver in the same setup have the same problem would lead me to a speaker or wire. The longshot is a bad HDMI cable from the sat to the receiver could have shorted the HDMI. I would try running component to the receiver, no speakers attatched and turn up the vol. If it's ok, then try it with a different HDMI cable and the same process. If you find that it shuts down on both component and HDMI, before putting a new unit in, you need to have all speakers and wires thoroughly checked out with a meter to find the problem. Hope this Helps. What part of the country are you in?

Fix onkyo ts-sr313 turn on problem

If the relay clicks on and then off straight away then it might have detected an overload condition and so shuts down. Overloads can be caused by faulty speakers or wiring. But if the damage is done already then one of the main power amp transistors or other devices could be short circuited.

My onkyo ht-r590 goes on then shuts off right away.

The amp protection circuit has been activated. Remove the power cord from the wall outlet immediately. Disconnect all speaker cables and input sources, and leave the AV receiver with its power cord disconnected for 1 hour. After that, reconnect the power cord and reconnect an input and a pair of speaker wires onto the unit. If the receiver still does not turn on than you will have to bring it in for service. Turn up the volume and if the receiver doesn't shut down, power off the receiver and add another pair of speakers. Power up the unit again and turn up the volume. If it doesn't shut down, power off the unit again. Now connect all your input sources and turn on your receiver. If the unit shuts down again, your unit will need to be further serviced at an authorized Onkyo service center.
