Unit no longer powers up after shorting the switched plug in back of unti

Hey,
I accidently shorted out the 110V plug on the back of my Onkyo TX-SR500 and now it won't power up. When you turn the unit off at the switch the stand by light lights and you can hear a relay click when attempting to power back up, checked the 3 fuses I can see in the cabinet and they seem to be fine. Any help, please?!

Onkyo shorted speaker


Hello
Disconnect the speaker connections and switch ON the set. Set a multimeter to measure volts, and measure the voltage acorss the shorted speker terminals at amplifier end. There should not be any voltage at all. That is, the voltage measures at the speaker terminals must be approximately equal to Zero. If hter shows any voltage, make sure that the output amplifier to that side is shorted. never connect an other speaker, even for checking. It will also burn out.
Connect speaker to this channel, only after rectifying the fault, if any.

My TX-SR500 has a problem, when I turned it on it will o less than a second and turns off it's self and the standby lithgt is blinking... Please help me on my onkyo. thank you very much!


Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on; or it may turn on but produce no audio to the speakers.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'nekkid'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

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.

My Onkyo TX-SR500 receiver stays in standy/on mode.


It may be your amplifier protection circuitry is being activated and shutting down automatically. This is usually caused by a faulty output transistor in one or more of the channels. I recently repaired my Onkyo TX-SR500 which had this problem.
Using a multimeter on ohms check between C and E on each of the ten output transistors. I found Q6051 and Q6061 to be short cct on all pins. Once you have located the faulty channels check the adjacent components for open or short cct.

I replaced the following components,
Q6051 (2SD1047)
Q6061 (2SB817)
R6091 (2.2ohm fusible)
R6081 (2.2ohm fusible)
R6101 2x 0.22ohm 2W
Q6031 (2SD2061)

The amplifier now works perfectly, cost of the parts is about $15-$20.
If you don't feel confident doing this yourself just find a friend or tech who can do it for you.

Tx-sr500 receiver


Hi,your fears are confirmed... the protection circuit is self resetting, and is operating because the amp will most probably have blown that channel as a result of the speaker wire short. At the risk of doing more damage(in the workshop,we always soft start an amp with output problems to prevent more damage)you could take the lid off, check and replace any blown fuses, be sure to use the same rating and type. If the problem persists, or the fuses fail again, it needs some expert attention. Off to the repair shop.... Good luck, and thanks for checking with FixYa

Onkyo TX-SR500 loosing settings


Turning any receiver off will erase the settings - there is no backup battery (Onkyo uses Battery Free Memory Backup) and the length of time depends on the capacitor charge. Why not just leave the receiver plugged in? Stand-by mode uses a negligible amount of power - enough to keep the capacitors charged and the LED on the front panel on.

Onkyo TX-SR500 Dolby Digital problem


I just read over the problem you were having with your Onkyo TX-SR500 receiver. It sound like the unit needs to be setup for all five channels.Sence your symptom says the diplay shows Dolby D3/2.1. According to the owners manual with the remote control look for speaker setup whin the button is pressed the current speaker setup will be shown in the display. Press the preset/adjustment<> to change the current setting to five speakers. the listening mode will automatically change according to the number of channels you selected. Hope this helps.
