The most common problem found on FixYa for Audio Video Receiver's is:

My receiver say's "Protect" or turns on then off. What's wrong? Seven times out of ten it is a shorted speaker or speaker wire. To determine your exact problem, the first step is to disconnect all speaker wires "at your receiver" Next: Turn the receiver back on. If your receiver still says "protect" or turns off, it needs to be serviced. If your receiver stays on; reconnect your speakers one at a time and power back up after each speaker. You may find that after reconnecting all speaker wires it works! Most commonly the small braids of wire from the + to the - have touched and have caused the problem. In some instances, you noticed the problem only when turning the volume up. either way, make sure the exposed wires to your receiver are no longer than 1/2" long and are completely under the screw down terminal or slide in. When you've found the wire or speaker with the problem, your receiver will go back into "protect" At this point, disconnect the wire from the speaker at the speaker that may be causing the problem then test again.* Note* Make sure speaker wires do Not touch each other as this Will cause a short! If you turn the receiver back on and it stays on, you now know the problem is in your speaker itself. To test your speaker, you will need a multimeter. Set it to ohms resistance and touch the speaker terminals, if there is a short internally the meter will read "1......" If it's an analog meter, it will peg to the right. There's your problem. Now, within any speaker there are quite a few possibilities as to what could be causing the problem. Most common is a blown coil and the speaker needs to be replaced. Some speakers have internal crossovers (usually floor standing speakers) and may have a shorted or burnt board (usually very visible brown burn marks on the board) and can possibly be repaired if your handy with a soldering iron. Now, if you disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and it still says "protect" Check your wire for the obvious cut or nail thru the wire if possible. If your system has wiring that runs behind walls, you may need to use your meter again. Disconnect the wire at both ends, keep the ends separated, put your meter on ohms resistance and touch probes to the + and - wires at one side. If the meter pegs to the right or reads "1...." the wire is shorted and needs to be replaced or repaired at the short. Hope this helps.

Individual speaker leads are not fused. It's possible the switch is defective. Does it light the speaker B indicator? If not, I'd suspect the switch.

If it DOES light the Speaker B indicator maybe there's an open circuit going to the Speaker B terminals. Or its common ground for that speaker pair alone is open.

Onkyo tx sr605 stopped playing music what should i do


If the receiver is indicating "overload" or "protect" there is a load on the system. Turn the receiver off and remove all speakers and wires, turn receiver on and reduce the volume right down, if the word "overload or protect" stays off! it means there is a short in the wiring or one of the speakers. If however the word "overload or protect" comes on when turned on, it indicates a short in one or more of the audio output ic's in your receiver, this is where you will need a tv technician to troubleshoot further. If you not sure about checking it out just call a professional in to have the unit assessed.

This site said it was free - then there is a charge? I am getting a "Protecting" message when I turn on my receiver - then it shuts off....What does this mean and what should I do?


It means the receiver senses excessive heat, or a short at its outputs. Disconnect the speaker wires and see if that helps. If not, get it to a Tech. If it turns on, figure out which speaker path(s) was causing the problem and resolve it.

The manual.

Power shuts off immediately after power on.

• Amplifier protection circuitry is activated. Remove the power cord from the outlet immediately. Contact your Onkyo service center.

My onkyo receiver say protect


If protect is coming up on the display, it means the system is detecting a short somewhere on one of the speakers and so is turning the amp off to avoid damage.
Check all the connections at the back of the amp to ensure they are not shorting, and at the back of each speaker, if nothing is found there, check each wire for damage (like squashed or rodent damage).

I have a onkyo tx-sr506 receiver that turns it self off


This unit is in protect mode. This means that a problem was detected and the unit has shutdown to prevent further damage. The most common cause of this is failed output transistors. Plan on $20-$40 for parts for this repair.

Onkyo TX8211


The most likely problem is shorted output transistors. This is a straightfoward repair for any shop that works on audio gear. Expect a parts cost in the $40-$50 range.

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-sr602 as soon as i turn receiver on it flashes protect


Does it display any message like "Protect" or something similar? Do you hear a relay click on then off?

Did the amp just not power up one day or did it stop working while you were listening to it? Finally, do you have teenage kids who might have been listening to your receiver and would have "neglected" to tell you that after listening to their music it suddenly stopped working?

It could be an internal fuse but chances are its something that requires a technician to repair (like the output transistors).

TX 8410 Onkyo no sound


Well, I'm sure you've either fixed the issue or gotten rid of the unit by now, but anyway... perhaps the speaker selection was accidentally switched (A or B), or my personal favorite: "Tape 2 Monitor" was turned on. Even if you select something else, you'll still see "Tape 2 Monitor" displayed on the LED display. Hit the button again and it will go away and your sound should return.
