Question about Philips Audio Players & Recorders
I have a Philips HTR-5000 A/V receiver that recently stopped working. It will not power on although it gets some power because the red LED light on the power button just blinks continuously along with a ''chirp'' or ''twittering'' sound coming from the inside of the unit. I removed the top of the unit and the sound is coming from the circuitboard. The sound and the LED blink is in sync. Could a component or something be making the sound and if so, which one? Please help.....Thanks

Try pressing the power, and multi speaker button at the same time. But first turn the unit off...then press the above buttons at the same time...This is for the SR6001... GH

It sounds like you have a bad speaker on the zone 2, or you have the speakers connected improperly.
When you engage the zone 2 a relay clicks and the speakers then become part of the amplifiers circuit.
If the problem was in the amplifier, it would go into protect mode without even having speakers connected to it.
If the speakers all check good, you most likely have the wrong type of speakers, meaning the impeadance is too low, or you have too many speakers connected to it.
On the back of the Denon, you will see right around the speaker output jacks, what ratings the speakers should be. If I remember correctly, it says 6 ohms or more when using only "A" or "B", and it says 12ohms or more for "A" + "B".
If you have two 8 ohm speakers on the same speaker jack you now have a 4 ohm load. That is below the ratings and can cause the amp to shut down (go into protect). Since your amp shuts down right away, I think you have a bad speaker or way too many speakers connected.
I have seen many times when people will connect 2 or 4 speakers to the one of the outputs that are designed for only 1 speakers.
If you are using too many speakers you will need a speaker distribution box. It has a resistor network built into it so the amp never sees a lower impeadance than what it is designed for.
You can connect 4, 6 or 8 speakers to one set of outputs designed for 2 speakers. You do loose a lot of power to the speakers, but it is better than blowing up your amplifier.
If I can be of any further help, let me know.

SOURCE: Power on problem
Well this helped me find the relay but I found that after i pulled it off the board that it has some corosion around the metal prongs that hold it to the board. Could not get the relay open to do what is posted above , tryed opening it several times. Not sure if you are supposed to open it but could someone let me know. I am scraping around the prongs to get the corosion off hoping it will help but might just replace it alltogether. Further info on how to open the relay to do what is posted would help, I would appreciate any help, plzzzzz! :)

If that didn't work, with the power off try holding Tune + and Auto surround/stream direct buttons for a few seconds to reset the protection circuits. Make sure to keep 8" of empty space above the unit for air, as overheating can cause this problem. If it fails again, there could be bigger problems, so get it checked
