I set the levels for all the speakers where I want them to be set at. But when I turn the unit off I lose all the speaker level settings and have to reset them

Some recievers have both a "power switch" and a "stand by" switch. Here is the difference.
"Power switch" eliminates all power input and most likely the memory in the unit too just like your stating in your situation.
"Stand by" switch shuts down all major components but keeps a small ammount of power to the unit to conserve any stored settings

Check your speaker wires, if they are crossed somewhere then the system protects it's self.

My reciever is shutting down completley when i try to turn on the second zone. i tried rewiring it but it still does it could it be the reciever or do i just have the settings incorrect?

if the reciever shut down with zone 2 on, zone 2 volume at -3 and nothing connected to zone 2 it needs repair if not reconnect the speakers to zone 2 speaker connections and make sure you do not have more than 4 pair of speakers with impedence matching volume controls or a impedence matching speaker selector box

Yamaha rx-v461 not working

you have a faulty circuit somewhere, whether its in speaker wiring, or power source, i dont know, but your reciever has an automatic circuit breaker in it for protection, and a faulty circuit will trip it, i would assume it is a power source problem since it wont turn back on, check wiring, plugs and look around, and smell for burnt, or hot components.

You might have a short somewhere behind the back of your receiver.Maybe a speaker wire sticks out and it is touching the back of the metal panel,or an RCA connection to a wrong input or output.
It is common because when you are behind the receiver for so long,carelessness will cause you.
A professional A/V troubleshoot expert could pin point certain connection to fix it for you,but in your case,it will be the best to unplug everything first,turn on the receiver by itself and see if there is anymore shut off;if it doesn't shut off after you have nothing that is connect to but only the power cord,i prove my point!
Let me know,

Trying to hook up jbl sr4732 speakers the highs are to loud compaird to the bass or lows. im only using a onkio with a 100 watt per speaker.

These JBL speakers are not made for a home stereo reciever. It could be part of the problem.

I do know that they have a high frequency input and a full range input on each speaker.

I am going to guess that maybe you have them connected to the high frequency input.

Are you using 1/4 inch jacks connecting to the input of the speakers?

I don't remember these speakers having a input for wires.

You may have another issue using these speakers with that reciever.

The JBL speakers are 4 ohms each, it is very likely that the onkyo requires 8 ohm speakers.

Look on the back of the Onkyo where the speaker jacks are at and see if it says anything about the minimum impeadance.

The impeadance is the ohms. Most home recievers are not designed for anything less than 8 ohms. Some are, but most are not.

Using 4 ohm speakers on a system that requires 8 ohm speakers can cause damage to the reciever. Mostly at higher volume levels, it will cause the reciever to overheat and shut off, maybe short out a channel. It pulls 2 times the amount of current thru the output transistors as 8 ohm speakers.

Let me know if this helps you or if you need more help.

My reciever turns on for about 4 seconds then clicks off..

First, unplug and replug in the unit to reset everything. Second, check each cable for a short using a multitester. Each speaker cable should show a few ohms of resistance. If either open or a dead short...there's the problem. Not it? Get service.

Shows to be stuck in Standby.

hold down the enter button and the advanced surround button for 5 seconds or so and the amp will restart, the display will come up and hopefully it will be ok. its often caused by using speakers under 8 ohms, or damaged speaker cables etc
