When watching a movie, my receiver will shut off

When I'm watching a movie, my receiver will shut itself off if a large boom or sound happens. What is the issue? I have checked all the connections for all speakers, and nothing seems to be touching.

    But it hasn't done this till recently. I've had the receiver since 2003. Is it possible the receiver is going bad?

    Thanks for the additional info! I will try to adjust the subwoofer and bass boost. We moved in 2007 so it may have been damaged!

The only thing you can do in this case is reduce the volume, or connect speakers requiring less power to run them.

    You can only assume it has been damaged IF since you've owned it you've operated it in the exact same manner with the exact same equipment. Causes for damage can include but not be limited to changing connections of any input or output while the receiver has power connected to it. Also in six years time it would have had thousands of occurances of voltage spikes from storms, sunspots, etc. but another consideration is the age of your speakers as well. They can be susceptible to an increase in resistance as their components naturally wear.



    If you have any equalization or "bass boost" or have increased the bass, disable those features and run the bass control at zero. If you are using a subwoofer, you can also increase the crossover frequency.

When i play my PS3 game the receiver shorts out and shuts off at random points...also does that when watching a movie will just randomly turn off and short out


Hello

Cutting out on the sound is usually a blown IC on the circuit board of the unit itself. This can also result in the player turning off randomly.

Take you receiver to your nearest electronic repair shop, let them replace the blown IC.

This should do the trick.

Kind regards
Andrea

When watching a movies or playing xbox my avr220 powers down when ever there is a boom in the movie or games or tv this just started about 2 months now


Something is getting overloaded.

When this happens:

Is it running hot? Find out why.
Is the volume set extremely high? Turn it down.
Are the speaker settings proper for the types and bass handling capacity of your speakers? Set them appropriately.

check polairity also make sure unit is well ventelated
you wouldnt use your compouter if it was inside a card board box
so make sure the reciever can breath also
recievers get too hot and they start blowing chips off the board

I have a Denon receiver, had it for a couple years now and has worked perfectly. Last week I was watching a movie and all of a sudden my receiver shut off and it blinked a red ring of death. I let it rest...


Did you recently move any speakers around or any items near the speaker wire connections?
It sounds like you may have a speaker wire shorting which is causing the receiver to go into "auto protect" mode. Check all of the speaker wire connections on the back of the receiver and at all of the speakers to make sure the wires are not touching or close enough to possibly touch.

The audio and video are not in sync


Are the movies you're watching store purchased DVDs? Sometimes with downloaded movies, the audio and video are just out of sync.

If they're store bought, it's possible that you've got a delay set in your receiver. Consult your receiver's operating manual to see if there's a "delay" option.

It's also possible that you're hearing that delay in the TV speakers.

If you've got the audio coming through the receiver AND the tv, you'll hear a slight delay when the audio's traveling from the DVD player to the television itself. This could happen "sometimes", if the tv volume is on, and not happen when the tv volume is off.
