Hey there snowbumswerd, a power surge may have caused the problem you are experiencing. Some higher end receivers will protect themselves from damage by setting off a breaker switch. The breaker should reset if you unplug the unit from its power source for one minute, and plug it back in. This is the easiest of all fixes. The next option is to check inside for blown fuses. Please ensure the unit is completely powered down and disconnected. They may not be obvious so look carefully. Also you can check your capacitors. They are the tube shape things that look like small batteries sticking off the board. If the top of any of these has lost it's flatness or erupted, then that is your problem. You should use a professional if this is the case. Relatively simple to fix and therefore inexpensive. Hope it helps. Good Luck!

The receiver shuts down when zone 2 is turned on

Disconnect the speakers on Zone 2 and try to turn on the receiver again. If the receiver works, there is a shorted speaker wire, pinched wire, or a blown speaker on zone 2. Good Luck

JVC car audio cd receiver model # KDR-310 will not stay powered up. Shuts down after 2 seconds. What's wrong??

hi marnie, if all the power and speaker cables are connected correctly, then you might have a faulty or shorted speaker in the vehicle.your unit is sensing a fault condition. check the impedance of eack speaker connected to the unit from the harness plug. if this does not help then your unit needs to be bench tested.

Yamaha RX-V595a receiver shuts off 2 seconds after its powered on

The first thing called out is the impedance switch on the back is not fully in one or the other position. Cycle the switch back and forth to make sure it will 'read' each setting, then turn it on.

Also make sure you if you have anything connected to its convenience outlets that they are not drawing more current than is allowed.

Did you buy it used or new?

After turning in my receiver, it immediately turns back off.

Sounds like it's going in to safe mode. This can be caused by a number of things but the first thing to look at is a failed output amp.

Protect mode shuts down the receiver

If this happens only when connecting the receiver, chech the receiver cable. If the cable is fine, receiver connector at the back of receiver is faulty.

Protect mode will kick in whenever a fault is detected.

You get the unit not powering up, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that is the protection switch that keeps shutting down the unit.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

Internal fault.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.
