Re: Power shuts off after 2 or 3 sec.

Please remove all speaker from receiver-volume down and test if the receiver shut down it needs to fix in service center-if not insert speaker one by one until you find the bad one-change its cable first and then change speaker itself.

When i connect the power it doesnt turn on only the power light does

1. Check for a reliable audio input
2. INPUT selector in correct position?
3. Speakers connected? Try using headphones if in doubt.
If all else fails, it could be a "protection" mode...unit will enter stand-by mode (power light you see) but will not turn on. This type failure will require electronic servicing.

Turns on for 5 sec. then goes to flashing stand by.

The receiver has an internal problem like bad power supply or burnt channel. You need to bring it to a local repair shop or mail it here.

Htr 5630 shut off in 2 sec.

Sounds like you have a bad amp IC or transistors.
When these go bad they almost always put roughly 40 volts dc from the amp power supply to the speaker terminals. The protection circuit senses this dangerous (to your speakers) dc voltage and disconnects the speaker terminals from the amp via internal relays (the ones you hear click) and puts it into protect mode. If it didn't the dc voltage would quickly toast the voice coils of the connected speaker.

Hi, after i turn the power on and then press the stand-by button, it clicks off to stand-by mode instantly. This is an Onkyo TX-SR500

This indicates that the system is going into protect mode. First disconnect all speaker wires (with the power cable disconnected). Then turn the unit on and see if it sill shuts aff ofter a few seconds. If it does not, then you have a problem with the speakers or speaker wires. inspect the wires at both ends for frayed strands that may touch. If that all lookd good, plu the speakers in, one at a time, until the problem reappears. Be sure to turn the sytem off before plugging in any speaker just to prevent any accidental short which could be catastrophic. If the system goes into protect mode with all speakers disconnected, you probably have a shorted output transistor.

Turns off after 4 secs or so....From Green to Red,

probably one of the surround channels is blown, thats why it goes into protection, meassure output transistors with a ohm/diode meter if thers no shortcut in the base to collector

Start up it gets to receiver on the displayit shuts off and Power indicator starts fashion red to green

Having too loud sound cannot damage the unit, the loud maximum sound is design for that unit, when its brand new one or 2 years old its okey.But when 2 to 3 or more years when voluming the maximum the it create a vibration that cause the "solder crack" and results intermittent sound goes on, goes off, that is your problem. You open the unit and got to supply section reheat or resolder the resistor, capacitor diode, transistor and most of all switching IC. when finish, go to audio section, do what u did in the supply section.Bear in mind not tosolder it causes trouble. When reheat all the solder, your unit is good as new.

The AVR-3300 power-off to stand-by mode

You have a blown amp or a leaky cap and the unit is going in to save mode to avoid destrying the unit.

Take it in for a repair. I don't think it should run more than $50-$75 for a fix depending on what component is bad.
