Question about Yamaha HTR-5850 Receiver
I am watching a movie for 1-5 minutes and it just shuts down. When I turn it on it briefly says "Check SKR Cables". I try to watch a movie again. Rinse a repeat. I just moved and don't have my rear speakers hooked up. I tried just attching cables for the rears with no speakers...no difference. It seems to shut off at loud point (like when the sub kicks in) I tried running the Reciever & Sub into their own outlet in case power was an issue. No change in the problem. thanks
Sounds like a possible power short, especially if you have speaker cables connected to the receiver but not to speakers -- leaving the ends more likely to short (even via a single thin copper strand across a millimeter or two, when the voltage peaks). The receiver's message says "Check Spkr Cables," right? (They do mean the Speaker Cables!) Most receivers have a built-in power overload detection/protection shut-off circuit to save you from such mistakes.
