My standby stays on even after I push power, it comes on for ten seconds and goes back to standby

It appears you have a power supply issue. And if that is not it, then the blown output stages could be responsible for the anomaly.

Receiver won't stay on. Stays on stand by

The standby light means it is plugged in. The reason it wont come on is because of a bad power supply.

How do you turn off standby on a kenwood krx-89 stereo

Hi, is the red light that says power On? If not, it could just be the fuse since I had the same problem. If you take the lid off, it should be in the left rear and is a 250v 6amp fuse. I had the same problem where only the standby light and the input lights were on. Neither the radio and cassette lights were on.

My Denon AVR-75 seems to stay in standby (red standby light is on) and I don'd get surround sound through it. How do I get it out of standby?

if the receiver does not power on from standby there is a problem like bad power supply or even bad macroprocessor. You need to bring it to a service center for diagnosing. 10-years old receiver, maybe better to buy new one.

Standby light won't turn off on receiver r 840. Tried doing what manual says and turn off autostandby mode but still light stays on. do you turn off ? i have tried everything..or does it always stay...

"Standby" means the unit has wall power but is not yet turned ON by you. When you turn the unit ON, the Standby light should extinguish and other signs of life should be evident.

It is basically an indicator that there is potential life in the unit. If it ever truly turns OFF, that is a problem.

Won't turn on.standby light on,fuse under cover is good.what next? onkyo tx-sr605

The only thing to test would be to disconnect all speaker wires at the receiver then turn it back on. If it still won't turn on, it's an internal power supply issue and will need service. If it turns on, post a comment and I can walk you thru further troubleshooting. Hope this helps

After turning ON the power/standby switch, the unit(receiver) display comes ON (green light) then after approx.4-5 seconds the display goes OFF and the unit defaults back to the standby mode (red light). I...

Is the red light flashing at first?
The unit may be going into protect mode. Lets hope it has done the job and the receiver has protected itself from failure.
Protect mode can result from speaker wires touching each other or the Amps2_bing.gif metal case. Check that first.
It can also be caused by unstable ohm loads if too many speakers2_bing.gif are connected to any of the outputs especially zone 2.
If you can remove all speaker wires and turn the unit back on. If it stays on, turn the volume down on the main zone and zone 2 if connected. Then reconnect speaker wires.

Reciever wont stay powered on

I fear that there's no easy fix. Sounds like the power supply or the board which controls it is bad. If you're not an electronics repair person, it'll need to go to a repair shop.
