Question about Yamaha HTR-5850 Receiver

1 Answer

Turns off after a few minutes

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.

Keeps turning off


So, Shutting down to protect itself. The error light says it needs service, Cycling power makes it work for a few more minutes, then the Panasonic safety circuit shuts it down. Projector shuts down when bulb life gets to the danger zone, and also when its heat sensor says there is a problem.
So you have a bulb life issue or you have a dirty projector / fan cooling issue??

I say clean it up with some compressed air when it is cool, then check the # of hours the bulb has on it (in the menu).

Lastly brace yourself, the bulb is gonna hurt you :-$

Mine shut down during my normal working day. Same thing, turn it off and on again - screen flashes up briefly then flicks off again.
Called Samsung and they are replacing it with a refurbished screen under warranty.

Change the input, look for the button on the remote or on the TV itself. Just changing the channel on the TV after powering down the VCR should also work.

Sounds like you have a loose cable. Check that the connection is really in well. If the problem continues I would get a new set of cables, especially if you are using the ones that came with the receiver or dvd player.

Amp protection circuit


disconnect all speaker leads at the unit,power it up then see if it'll stay on. if it does, reinstall one speaker lead at a time until it goes into protect mode. that speaker line will probably have a short in it. Just run a peice of skr wire straight from the unit to the sspeaker in doubt, hooks em up see what happens. if it shuts down have that skr ckd.if it works, just rip out the old shorted line and run new stuff.
