    I have the exact same problem that just happened today. I'm curious to know what your outcome was.

    This could be the answer to my problem as well...no audio through the speakers, not even the test tone. I'll try it out. Did it work for you Terry?

The unit may be experiencing an overload caused by a short circuit, internally or externally. Try disconnecting all the speakers, then turning up the volume. If nothing happens, connect one speaker at a time and turn up the volume to see if you get more sound. You may have a speaker that has shorted internally and this will help you discover the bad one. However, if when you have all the speakers disconnected, and the unit still goes into protection mode with the volume up, then there is a problem with the unit itself.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!

    Paul,

    Thanks for the Advice. I had a problem with my system and after doing what you explained... i realized is the Woofer that caused the system to got o protection mode. you mean the Woofer has a short? and what should i do about it. The system is already out of warranty. Is it a big issue to correct it?

    Thank you for the positive feedback, and I apologize for the late response. I will respond assuming you haven't done anything else yet. First, the first answers question is yet. It was driven too hard (too high a volume) and probably has melted the coil inside, rendering it unfixable. Second Q: Replacing the woofer isn't a big deal at all. The simpliest solution is using the speaker brand and model # to find a replacement, whether online or from a local dealer. If your speakers have a name but but no model #, let me know and we'll take the next step. If they have neither, I suggest that now would be a good time to replace both front speakers.

I have an TX-SR313 for a year now and it was working perfectly until yesterday it just automatically shots off even when I turn it on for several time it just shots off. How can I solve that Problem?


Hello, It seems like the receiver is going into protection mode. A unit will only go into protection mode for two reasons mainly. The first reason is if there is an internal short. The second is if there is an external short which is typically only caused by one or more of the speaker connections. To isolate whether the short is internal or external, you would first need to unplug the receiver and disconnect all of the speakers. At this point you will plug the receiver back in with no speakers connected and turn the unit back on. Also turn the volume up to about 70 (even with no speakers connected). If the unit stays on that means that one or more of the speaker connections was causing the receiver to go into protection mode. If the receiver shuts off again with no speakers connected, then that means the unit would have an internal short and would have to go in for service. Thanks, FJD

Receiver shuts off when loud content comes on TV


Hello Jerry, This means that the unit is going into protection mode. The unit will only go into protection mode for 2 reasons. The first reason would be if there is a short within the unit itself. The second reason would be if one of the speaker connections is causing a short. To isolate which of the two is the issue, you would first turn the unit off and unplug all of the speakers. Turn the unit back on with no speakers connected and raise the volume up. If the unit turns off with no speakers connected then we know that the issue is internal and would have to go in for repair. If the unit stays on, that will tell us that one or more of the speaker connections was causing the issue. If that is the case I would check all of your speaker connections and possibly start with fresh copper connections. Thanks, FJD

Will pet sitters take good care of my dog as I plan to move away from my house for few days?


Pet care professionals will surely take good care of your pet as they will engage them in group activities, training sessions and feeding sessions. While I was away from home I took help from a pet care center known as pet sitters Airdrie and they did an excellent job.

My TX-SV515PRO (16 yrs old) has bad left channel, sound cuts off & on, especially at low volumes. Is it worth repairing?


A New Receiver would be nice if you could afford it. If you can't or even love the one you have you could service it but I'm sure you know all this. But if your asking for expert advise I would get myself a brand new one with coverage, make it a good name brand. I like Kenwood, I always have. You can wire the two speakers to the one channel(not recommended).but will work as mono. check all connections. check your wires could be in the speaker wiring.

Onkyo TX-SV 727 PROTECT mode


Generally, this happens when there's a loose connection somewhere, either internally, or with the connections. It usually happens when the volume's too loud, and it tries to protect itself.

I'd suggest you unplug everything from it, check all the speaker wires, and then try turning it on, without any devices connected to it.

If it works, turn it off, and reconnect devices, one by one. That should fix it.

If not, it's likely that there's a loose solder inside, and it needs to be sent out for service.

Onkyo TX-DS777 goes straight to protection mode


Hello.You have shorted audio outputs. One of your channels has shorted output transistors. If your unit uses output ICs then one of them is shorted. Both types ( individual transistors or ICs ) are located on the large finned heat sink. The parts are available from http:\\www.tritronicsinc.com. good luck

Onkyo ts595 goes into protect mode with volume increase


Hold the VCR/DVR button in and press the ON/OFF Standby button. The display should briefly read CLEAR and then the unit switches off. If that clears protect mode, you'll need to redo the Audyssey and configuration setup as these will have been cleared by the reset.

Onkyo ts595 goes into protect mode with volume increase


HI check your speaker cables are not touching, also make sure "b" speakers are not on and that all your speakers are 4ohm or higher as this will cause the amp to shut down if they are to low an impedeance,The amp is protecting itself when it shuts down.

hope this helps.

Amp Protection Mode


from LANCE P: I fixed it. Be sure that all your speaker connections are perfect. No element frays that can arc, no +/- problems, no single barely connected wire. My problem was volume sensitve and I evidently had one + wire that was loose in the back. I corrected it and ran it all day with surround and good volume with no problems. So diligently check ALL YOUR SPEAKER CONNECTIONS, both in the back of the unit and at your speakers
