Question about Onkyo TX-SR701 Receiver
My receiver has been just shutting down by itself and now tonight it will not turn back on...I have tried other recepticles and unplugged and plugged back in...WHY would this happen?
SOURCE: My Harman Kardon receiver (
I used the live chat and the problem was resolved.
Usually the problem are strands of speaker wires which cause shorting and protection shuts off the receiver in order to prevent damage. There was one speaker that I repositioned recently which was causing shorting. I twisted the wires and tightened them in place and my receiver has been working w/o a glitch. I was lucky that I did not have to check all the wire strands on the receiver and all the speakers.
Problem solved and I learned valuable lesson.

Adjust bass control to half position then feed loud signal,if it shut off adjust the bass contol to zero position,if it shut off again the defect is in the over load protection circuit it is already sensetive to loud signal.you may call the nearest audio amplifier technician on you.
Hope it may help you,

I had this problem, and it was one of the speakers. I disconnected the right rear speaker and now it works fine. I asked a guy at Visions how to solve it so I can hook my speaker back up and he said that banana plugs prevent wires from crossing and sending a backwards signal (causing the receiver to turn itself off). Hope that helps!
