    it is a model RD-7103, Don't how it posted it was a RD-6105

  • Anonymous May 03, 2008

    It sounds like I have the same problem. I have the RD-6105 and I heard it short out while I was fiddling around the back of it (may have shorted the speaker wires) Now when I turn it on it automatically turns itself off after about 3 to 5 seconds. Any idea how to fix this. There was one fuse inside that I could see but it appears not to be blown.

One of three things could be happening:
1. the most likely problem is that the impedance in the speakers is too high, causing a short
2. a faulty mechanical relay, there are two - 1 on the PSU and 1 on the main chip. the relay on the main chip may be faulty
3. there could be a problem with one or both of the main capacitors. the two caacitor responsible are huge and hard to miss you can order them from jay car pretty cheap!

No power with blue hdmi light blinking

Try holding the advanced surround and power buttons for about five seconds. Most likely the unit is locked in protect mode. If it powers on but turns back off after a couple seconds, you probably have a blown amp channel that needs to be repaired

How do i keep the power on when it goes out in five seconds?

You can't. It's the systems' internal safety circuit shutting it down friend

Not an expert on those machines but it sounds like the power output stage is faulty and overheating causing a shutdown.
Needs new output stage or repair ?

The receiver unit works fine but sudenly goes mute and comes back on between 3 and 40 minutes later. Its not an ear phone problem.

It might be over heating? do you have the right ohm speakers hooked up should use 8 ohm speakers as lower ohm speakers will cause this problem!

I have a htr 6130 yamaha reciever and when i hook my five channel home theater system it plays for a while then when i turn it up to almost max it turns the unit off completly... how do i hook up my

Hook all the positive and negative wires correctly and read on the speakers and make sure you have them all in the right spot and if that doesnt help its probably because the reciever is maxed out wich is triggering a kill switch wich some recievers have as a safety feature so you dont blow your speakers

My Onkyo TX-SR 876 turns right back off within 10 seconds of turning it on. I can see the display panel for about 3-4 seconds then it goes off and the red standby light goes into a blinking mode. Any...

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

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 'naked'. 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.

The unit will not stay on

I got similar issue and managed to fix it with excellent tech support from NAD. Flashing LED means system goes in to protective mode. Most probable reason is presence of DC voltage on amplifier out puts. In my case it was both surround amps. It had faulty resistor and a dry jpint at power line

Amp comes on and goes right into protection mode

Turn the reciever on for a second or two and then off before the protect mode shows up on the monitor. Repeat this step about five times and check to see if the reciever does not go into protect mode. If it does go into protect mode try it again. Dont know if this is the proper way to fix the reciever but it worked for me. Good Luck
