Question about Onkyo TX-NR801 Receiver

1 Answer

Receiver was dropped and now only the standby light will come on, but nothing else.

I am pretty sure that this is going to have to go to a repair shop, but what could it be and how much coul dit cost to fix? The receiver was dropped in a move. It was in a box, but not very well packaged (should have done it myself!). It took the hit in the back of the unit where the powercord goes into it. I took the cover off and could not find anything loose or visablt broken. When you plug it in and push the power button the only thing that happens is the standby light comes on. Ant help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Re: receiver was dropped and now only the standby light...

I don't want to be the one to say it, but there's a reason for the sticker that says 'no consumer repairable parts within.' If you have an electronic tech for a buddy, let him/her look at it.Shop time will run anywhere from $45-90 hr, with a 1 hr minimum. As low as prices are these days, consumer electronics are now 'throw it out, get a new one' items. Do us all a favor if you trash it. RECYCLE it. Take it to Goodwill, you local solid waste dept. just don't let it end up in a landfill.Odds are it's something simple but it'll cost to find out.

Won't power up.

It may be doing a "self check". Make sure no one crossed any output / speaker wires while moving speakers to clean, etc.

Why is my RCA STAV-3860 not coming on?

It sounds like the unit is getting power but is going into standby mode due to an internal fault. Sadly, newer receivers these days are not designed to be repaired but replaced!

Unit does not reset

Sounds like it it going in to protect mode. Very likely to have a bad output transistor(s). If discrete outputs are used in your receiver they are the larger components mounted to the heat sink. Sometimes only one transistor shorts other times many transistors, diodes, resistors and capacitors go bad. Take it to a service tech if you or no one that you know has some level of amp repair knowledge. Good luck!

Standby light on

You might have shorted out one of the amp channels. If this is the case, it needs to be looked at by a pro.

Goes to standby with fast blinking red light after 5 seconds

From my experience you need to replace the Hi power module

Receiver shuts down and will not turn back on untill you unplug and plug back in

Nope. sorry to burst your bubble but your problem is pretty common on this unit. Its bad capacitors in the power supply and probably not worth repairing in a repair shop. since this is a solid state reciver, there are no user replaceable parts inside.
