When i connect the power it doesnt turn on only the power light does

1. Check for a reliable audio input
2. INPUT selector in correct position?
3. Speakers connected? Try using headphones if in doubt.
If all else fails, it could be a "protection" mode...unit will enter stand-by mode (power light you see) but will not turn on. This type failure will require electronic servicing.

Our receiver (pioneer vsx-405) will not power on. Push the power button once and you get the power stand by light coming on but when you hit the button again the stand by light goes off and nothing comes...


Usually a fault like the you ask will indicate a bad transistor in the amplification section. I suspect that the control circuit is sensing a fluctuation in the power supply and going in to protect mode. (assuming that the protect circuit itself is working properly) If a voltage is too high the unit will go in to protect mode to prevent damage to the speakers and the rest of the unit. I would take the unit in to a local repair shop and get a estimate of repair charges. Expect a 60 to 80 dollar repair charge depending on how many parts need to be replaced and what the repair labor rate is in your area.
Good luck...

Hi, after i turn the power on and then press the stand-by button, it clicks off to stand-by mode instantly. This is an Onkyo TX-SR500

This indicates that the system is going into protect mode. First disconnect all speaker wires (with the power cable disconnected). Then turn the unit on and see if it sill shuts aff ofter a few seconds. If it does not, then you have a problem with the speakers or speaker wires. inspect the wires at both ends for frayed strands that may touch. If that all lookd good, plu the speakers in, one at a time, until the problem reappears. Be sure to turn the sytem off before plugging in any speaker just to prevent any accidental short which could be catastrophic. If the system goes into protect mode with all speakers disconnected, you probably have a shorted output transistor.

Tx-ds747 no display light,when powering on only stand by mode and the volume knob has light ,how to fix it.

Sounds like the "Pure Audio" mode is turned on. This mode is designed to use the amps power to dedicate to audio processing and sound quality. It turns off all front panel lights and video processing. Check you remote or thr front panel of the Onkyo for a "Pure Audio" button.

Kenwood vr 357 surround system stand ny light keeps blinking when turned on but no sound no nothing when turned on just powers up for 7 seconds then shuts off with light blinking

This means there is a problem with the system it is in the protect mode it will not come out of that mode untill repairs are made. More than likley the power amp is blown.

    Fisher ca 9025 amplifier

    For those who accidently put thier CA-9025 in standby mode by hitting the timer button and no longer have the remote, I figured out how to turn them back on.

    Turn on the power button and press and hold the Tuner button for at least 10 seconds. it should come back on :) Hope that helps.
