My tx-sv525 is turning its self on and off when ever i plug it in no matter if it has speakers hooked up or not. i have tried every speaker setup i can think of. whats the next step?


Speakers have nothing to do with spontaneous power ON. It either has a severe and dangerous internal power circuitry issue or it's sensing a remote control command to turn power on and off. Block thereceiver so it can't possibly see any external controllers and see if that stops it.

Receiver turns off after DVD is turned on. Clicking noise. Check speaker wires


It's a issue with alot of these Receivers I personally had this issue on my Receiver. the issue is a ground Fault the protection mode for over current in some of Yamaha's and HK receivers are the Two main Relay's if the Ground inside the amp is lose or is causing a Ground Loop this will happen. as you turn on the DVD there is a slight leak of Positive current tru a bad Capacitor and Resistor on the DVD player causing the Ground to send a instant burst of -Vcc to the Amp's ground setting the Protection mode on. but because it's not caused by the Receiver it self sometimes it looks like the Amp just shut it self down. In better words Try to Ground the DVD before you hook up again. use the Outlet Ground also if you use a 1K resistor on the ground wire it will help to keep any noise from coming in. Let me know. Marcelo Good Luck.

Look at inside at capacitor and fuse but they seem ok. again once i turn it on, it would automatically shuts off after a second.


When a system shuts down after a few seconds it is the self protect circuit shutting down power to the outputs to prevent (further) damage. It may be caused by frayed speaker wires, bad speaker voice coils, or blown output transistors. First, turn off power and remove all speaker wires from the receiver. Turn it back on and see if the problem remains. If it works OK, inspect each speaker wire at both ends for loose strands and correct these. Then, hook up your speakers one at a time until the problem reappears. That speaker or its' wiring is your problem. For safety's sake. turn the receiver off before connecting each speaker. An accidental short of the output terminals can be disastrous (and expensive).

Tuner Keeps Turning Off when a Loud Noise is Played


It's a receiver, not a tuner.

Clearly something is overloading it or forcing it into self protection.

What else is drawing power from the same souce as the receiver, or from its convenience outlet. There IS a limit to how much current it will support.

Try checking the speaker connections and their impedance to make sure it's not unacceptably low.

Onkyo receiver HT-R530..after cable and speaker hook up = puff of smoke and blinking red light. Will only turn on for 10sec at a time. Whats UP!???


One way or another, it sounds like the amp has blown. Probably the outpous and/or drivers and such. Perhaps one of the speakers was either shorted, wires touching or hooked up wrong.

Every time I try to turn on my onkyo receiver it turns off instantly


the reason why the receiver probably keep turning off is that the systems come with overload protector to keep one from burning or short the systems out so it shut its self off. make sure you have the speaker wires is connected properly, its very important that you do although the receiver has 0% tolerance when it come to speakers hook up. positive from speaker to positive connector behind reciever; same as negative. double check all speakers wires. repost if that not an issue

Turns it self off with a sparking noise in the speakers


The unit has a built in protection mode if a fault occurs in the speaker wiring. If its in protection mode the power button light will flash and display goes blank. Try disconnecting all speakers and see if it stays on, if so it could be a shorted speaker wire or bad speaker.
