SOURCE: receiver shutdown

There is whats called a protection circuit inside this receiver. This is what is supose to happen when the receiver detects a short in one or both of the output stages of the amp. Unless you have a service manual or have the know how to work on solid state receivers, my best advice is to take the unit into an authorized Yamaha repair depot and have them take a look at it, as they can hook up the receiver to a set of load resistors and run the amp to max capacity and see when the amp section of this receiver starts to clip and that will give them an idea of where your problem is. I'm afraid there is no fix that an end user of this receiver can do. Good Luck

I have a Sherwood 4108 after a month it shuts off after a few seconds what is the problem?

There is a short either in the power supply or one of the output channels. Receiver is shutting down to further protect other components.

Needs to be serviced. Check if the warranty is still valid since they usually last about one year

Pioneer receiver sx 316 shuts off after a few moments of being turned on

Mine is having this problem now.

Tried re-inserting the speaker wires.
Tried resetting before it shuts off.
Tried disassembling but solder joins are still nice.

It still shuts off soon after power up. Time to spend money? :(

Dra-397 shuts down 1 second after turning on

There's a couple of possibilities; power supply shutting down because of a fault within it; the PS shutting down because of excessive current drawn and that can be caused by a failure in the final amplifiers which are probably modular in design.

I turn stereo on and it shuts off after a few seconds

There is an output load on the receiver, turn off! remove speaker wires from back, power on and turn down the volume, if it holds! you have a short in the wires or one of the speakers. Now if if shuts down with everything dis-connected it means there is one or more audio outputs shorted.

Without speakers hooked up when you turn it on it kicks off within a few seconds what should i do to fix the problen

You didn't mention this but I assume it was working with speakers and then failed? If so, then a module near the output has probably failed and the power supply is shutting down for protection. Without a simple multimeter and a little knowledge you probably won't be able to repair this yourself.

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

Unit keeps shutting off

Protection circuit activating. Possibly a shorted amplifier channel or power supply fault. Take it to a Denon repairer

Hi changeman5 Have you tried to do a full reset on the unit. Disconnect from the wall for 24 hrs. Then try again. If the problem persists, it may have power supply issues, or a DC offset problem shutting it down. If you are game, I could talk you through some more diagnostics...

Try rick at
The shutdown would be from a voltage supply in the power amp seeing too heavy a load and "shutting down" so that the amp doesnt Fry
