About 4 days after I purchased this speaker, it cut off randomly. I immediately returned it to the authorized Apple store where I bought them. I had also purchased the wire to hook the speaker to my MacBook Pro. They ran the speakers through with computer streaming internet radio non-stop for an hour with no problem. Subsequently the speakers worked fine for a couple of days, and then the same random turning off problem came back. It happens on different Apple computers, so it's not my computer. When the speaker turns off while listening to music in iTunes, I unplug the output wire from my laptop and I can hear the music through my laptop. This is most frustrating.
The only thing i can think of is the amount of power surging into the speakers is too great and they are cutting of to avoid blowing out. I have a similar issue with my surround sound if i turn it up too loud.

Grounding issues are just simply earth connections that are either loose or are badly soldered. Sometimes with bad soldering a knock on the unit can make it play. It's just a question of going inside and looking - with a lens sometimes - at soldering joints - wire connections and screws fixing. Random cut outs certainly sound like bad soldering problems etc. The only other cause is heat sensitive devices, which shut down when too hot. But I wouldn't jump to that conclusion just yet.
Does your iMac have a headphone jack, this is an output source that can be used to input to other amplified sources. I'm not sure what type of connector that is on your Pro speakers but if it has a universal jack then plug this in the headphone jack on your computer.
Hi, To deauthorize all computers associated with your account 1. Click iTunes Store in the Source pane. 2. If you're not signed in to the store, click the Account button, then enter your account name and password. 3. Click the Account button again (your ID appears on the button), enter your password, and then click View Account. 4. In the Account Information window, click Deauthorize All. To authorize a computer to play purchases using your Apple Account 1. Select a song, video, or audiobook you've purchased (in your library or the Purchased playlist). 2. Click the Play button. If the computer is already authorized, the item plays. If the computer has not yet been authorized, iTunes asks you to enter the Apple ID and password you used to purchase the song.
Please let us know if that was helpful enough.
Good Luck & Thanks,
If you have disconnected all connections from the receiver including your sources and the unit shuts down and goes in protect then there is an internal shortcircuit on the receiver and you would need to send that to an authorized service center. Now, since you just bought it 4 days ago, if you purchased it from an authorized dealer of Onkyo you could have it replaced since its way within the 30 day return policy. But, if you have purchased it from circuit city, unfortunately your option would only be the service center for repairs. If you send it to an authorized service center, you would need to put in a copy of your sales receipt together with a brief description of the issue you are encountering. Where did you purchase your 806?
We also have a Gateway Computer purchased in 2001 with the Boston Digitanl BA735 speakers. We ran into a similar problem when we upgraded from Windows ME to Windows XP, with no sound after the upgrade. After consulting with computer stores and "Geek Squad", it was finally determined that Windows XP set the speakers for analog not digital. Once that was reset, our sound returned. Hope this works for you.
Same issue showed up for me today very randomly...
HD comes on and off for no reason and sound cuts in and out. This fix worked for me:
1.Disconnect the left speaker from the sub woofer. 2.Take the 4 screws out on the bottom of the left speaker. (They are under the rubber matting you can just poke holes through it) 3. Remove the bottom plastic assembly from the speaker 4. Cut the 4 wires to the headset chip. Careful not to cut any others to the speakers themselves! 5. Unscrew and remove headset plug chip 6. Reassemble and plug left speaker back into sub woofer.
