I would search for recalls and the customer support information center.

You should contact them with the model number by email and see where that goes.

SOURCE: Onkyo TX-DS474 Receiver shuts down after Standby mode.

It's going into a protect mode. The amp is probably shorted out. Disconnect the spkrs and turn it on. If it still shuts off, it's the amp, if not, it's the spkrs.

SOURCE: Onkio receiver

The output transistors should be replaced in pairs. Also, It may not be just the output transistors that are defective. If you have no experience with these types of repairs, I would suggest that you bring the unit to a service shop. The outputs will run about $15-$25 per pair.

SOURCE: My Onkyo Receiver TX 601 is turning itself off

Adjust bass control to half position then feed loud signal,if it shut off adjust the bass contol to zero position,if it shut off again the defect is in the over load protection circuit it is already sensetive to loud signal.you may call the nearest audio amplifier technician on you.

Hope it may help you,

SOURCE: Onkyo TX-SV919THX, No Output

I have found the battery location. It is roughly on the opposite side of the pc board where the display is. It basically faces the heat sinks. It's one of those small watch sized batteries and is soldered but sticking off the pc board with 2 leads. I could see that there was some leakage and corrosion. I still have to figure out what needs to be dis-assembled to get access to it so I can unsolder the bad battery and replace it. This stupid little battery seems to need replacing every 6-8 years! When it dies, it seems to disable the preamp section from passing any signal giving the symptoms that the amps are dead. However, if you try to use the pre-outs to an external amp, nothing. So, my guess is it has something to do with the preamp section. Anyway, that will be my weekend project to try to get at the battery and replace it with "longer leads" so it will be easier to replace in 6 years when it dies again. Great design Onkyo! You dumb-*** weasels!!!! I hate when companies engineer things to break so you are likely to pay them to fix it. Not this time, "No soup for you!"

Onyko tx nr616 receiver keeps shutting off. Only stays on for approximately 3 seconds. Can you help?


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.

Onkyo tx-nr509 Receiver not talking to Panasonic TV TX-L42E31B


Hello, I am sorry about your issue. If the cable is long from the receiver to the TV it may cause video issues. Please try a reset of the receiver by pressing and holding vcr/dvr and then on/standby. When display shows clear let go. The receiver will shut down. Turn back on and test. This procedure will take the receiver back to factory defaults. Thank you, CB

This site said it was free - then there is a charge? I am getting a "Protecting" message when I turn on my receiver - then it shuts off....What does this mean and what should I do?


It means the receiver senses excessive heat, or a short at its outputs. Disconnect the speaker wires and see if that helps. If not, get it to a Tech. If it turns on, figure out which speaker path(s) was causing the problem and resolve it.

The manual.

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Onkyo-TX-SR601-Receivers-manual/id/365ag212/t/2/

Power shuts off immediately after power on.

• Amplifier protection circuitry is activated. Remove the power cord from the outlet immediately. Contact your Onkyo service center.

My Onkyo Receiver TX 601 is turning itself off


Several things can cause this: Loud signal passages can momentarily draw high currents at the mains, especially if you have unit plugged into power stripe with other equipment. Or if unit is plugged into isolation transformer, current draw may exceed output of transformer. Too many speakers hooked to output or if one is bad (partially shorted due to overheating)
