    The speakers are connected but the RECEIVER WILL NOT TURN ON anyway.



    Any intelligent suggestions?

First you have to test separatly your speakers outputs
disconnect all wires speaker and speakers, turn on your reciever and look if you still have the same problem «CHECK SPEAKER WIRES alert» if yes you have to go to a specialist to fix it... if no test one line after one line with and without speaker connected until the problem reappear to locate the bad line or bad speaker.

My Receiver very rarely comes on but shuts off in few minutes even the standby doesn't lit up. but when on works perfectly.


Hi Joseph,

It could be that there is a frayed speaker wire touching the back of the receiver and when playing at a low level the speakers do not require that much power, however when the level from the speakers increases more power is required and if there is a frayed speaker wire touching the back of the receiver there could be a short causing the receiver to shut down. A way to avoid the frayed wire is to use "Banana Connectors" that the speaker wires goes to and the connector will plug into the speaker posts. Please try the following to see where the issue is coming from. Have the receiver turned off, make sure all the speaker wires are labeled, and disconnect them from the speaker terminals. Turn the receiver on select a source that would give you sound if the speakers where still connected and turn the volume all the way up. If the receiver shuts down than it would need to go to a service center as it is an internal problem with it. If the receiver does not shut down, turn the volume down, shut the receiver off and connect one speaker and than turn the receiver on selecting the same source as before and raising the volume up. If the receiver shuts down, remove that speaker from the post and connect it to another speaker post to determine if it is the receiver or the speaker itself that is giving you the problem. If the receiver should shut down after moving that speaker you know it is a problem with the speaker or the wiring. If the receiver does not shut down, turn the volume down, shut the receiver off and connect another speaker followed by doing the previous test procedure. Keep adding speakers until you have them all reconnected to the receiver as long as it has not shut off while trying the test procedure. After determining whether it is the speakers or the receiver you would need to bring either to a service center to be repaired. To locate an authorized independent service center, check the dealer and service locator at our website: www.onkyousa.com or www.integrahometheater.com.

I have a sony amp model str de475 - one speaker (rf) crackles when its turn pass 3 on the volume scale


The problem is in the audio driver and audio output stages, check speaker wires for shorts, if okay! you will need a technician because of the complexity involved.

I have the VSX-D711 receiver and recently added a new DVD player and re-ran the speaker wires. Since this change I have developed a new problem, after about an hour the receiver shuts down.


The problem sounds like the amplifier shutting down in protect mode. This can be due to a shorted speaker cable, or even a speaker that may be run out of phase, or too much load on one channel of the amplifier.
First check and make sure there are no cables that may be exposed and rubbing against each other. That will cause a short.
Secondly try re running and testing each speaker line as you go individually. While you are rehooking the cables up, make sure that you + and - are in the correct terminals on the speaker and the receiver's speaker outputs. Also make sure you are not running more of a load on the receiver than it can handle such as running multiple speakers on the same output. This will cause the amp to shut down. Only run a load (8ohm, 4 ohm etc..) that the receiver speaker output can handle Two 8 ohm speakers make a 4 ohm load thus making it harder for the receiver to work, and then it overheats and shuts down. Good Luck

I have a yamaha, natural Sound Av receiver RX-V483, every time that i start the unit it will shut down after 5 seconds. thank you very much


It indicates an output load problem, dis-connect the speaker wires from the back of receiver. Next power on and turn the volume right down, if the unit runs, check for shorts in the speaker wires and speakers. But if it still shuts down "with speakers and wires dis-connected" one or more of the audio output ic's is shorted and will need a professional to assess the item.

My Onkyo 808 shuts down when i raise the volume, and when I try to set it up using the micophone.


Amps shut down in most cases because the receiver is detecting and impedance (below 4 ohms) that might damage the amplifier. Do a quick check of the speaker connection and look for wires that might be shorted to the frame or have crossed each other. This is the most common cause of the unit shutting down. Check your speakers impedance if you have a meter. If you don't then unplug power from the unit and then un-hook all speaker wires from the receiver. Next connect just one speaker (Front Left) and power the unit back on and take the volume up. If it shuts down then try the Front right all by itself, bring the volume up again. If the unit seems ok then add one speaker at a time and test. Continue until you find the bad speaker/cable. Your amp should be able to drive speakers down to 4 ohms. The NR808 has power monitoring (sometimes called crowbar) that looks for to much current and then shuts down. I suspect you may have a short in a cable or in a speaker. The 808 is a great amp and hopefully your problem is external. If your amp continues to shut down even with just one speaker connected then one or more of your channel amps (internal) is likley bad causing the unit to shut down. Good Luck.

Keeps turning itself off


If Both speakers are working at a low volume and you turn it up and it clips and shuts off you have one of 3 problems. you have over driven your speakers and one has shorted the voice coil but still will work at low volume, its a overload protection for ohms short in receiver. unhook each speaker and turn balance to the one hooked up and turn up receiver if it shuts off do the same with other speaker to determine which side is bad. 2 speaker wires are touching at speaker or receiver. 3 a bad receiver output transister. Good luck.

The Kenwood VR517 home theater system wants to just turn itself off at about 5 minutes of being on. this just started happening this week.


If this unit stays on for 5 minutes, and it appears to be playing normal, a bad speaker could be the cause unless you are using speakers that are not compatible with this unit.

The specs on this unit are 100 watts per channel and require 8 ohm speakers. if you are using speakers that are 6 ohms or 4 ohms, you will overheat the unit quickly and it will shut down. It is not designed to use anything less than 4 ohm speakers.

If you are using the speakers this unit came with, or you know that the speakers are 8 ohms (it should be listed on the speaker where the wires plug in), go ahead to the next step.

The first thing to do is to unplug one speaker, it does not matter which one, just pick one to unplug from the back of the receiver or right at the speaker. If you unplug one right at the speaker, make sure that the speaker wires do not touch together or touch anything else, they must be insulated from anything metal or conductive.

After one speaker is unplugged, turn the unit back on and let it play normally the way it was when it shut down after five minutes. If the unit continues to play for a long time, at least 30 minutes or more and does not shut down on its own, you have just found the culprit causing your problem. Some speakers may sound like they are OK, but still can cause a problem.

If the unit shuts down again after five minutes like before, go ahead and plug that speaker back in and do the same thing with one of the other speakers.

Continue this process until you have isolated one speaker as being the problem.

If you go thru the entire process and it still shuts down, you may have an internal amplifier problem. It can be something as simple as some heat stressed solder joints that need to be reflowed, or it could be a bad amp IC. This unit uses 3 different amp IC's and it could be any one of them or a component in the amp circuit. Sometimes it can even be a power supply failure. In any case, if the above steps do not work, you need to take it in and be serviced. There are no other end user options to perform.

I hope this helps with your problem, if you need more help just ask.

Overload...


Pioneer posted this on it's Canadian Web Site:

Poor wiring connections, bad wires or a bad speaker may cause this. As you increase the volume, you will increase the amount of current you are drawing from the receiver. To troubleshoot this issue, try the following:
  1. Disconnect each speaker wire connection. Inspect for any frayed or damaged wiring and replace it.
  2. Check the impedance of the speakers; make sure they are properly rated for your stereo. In most cases, they need to be 8 ohms. Only a few Pioneer receivers will support lower impedance.
  3. If the problem still continues, try these steps:
    1. Turn the receiver off.
    2. Remove one speaker.
    3. Turn the receiver on.
    4. Increase the volume.
If the receiver overloads, repeat steps 1-4 (selecting a different speaker each time). If you disconnect a certain speaker and the receiver no longer overloads, have this speaker checked at a service center. It could have a bad speaker component, like a tweeter, sub-woofer, or even a bad crossover.

Onkyo 705 receiver shuts off at higher volumes


I had this same problem and it turned out to be a twisted kink in the speaker wire. Run a sound check to each speaker separately (from your receiver menu) and turn each one up until the receiver shuts off. Check the wire to the speaker that caused it to shut off and make sure the +- ends are not touching each other at either end, and that there are no twists or kinks along the way.

Immediate shut


Unplug all the speaker wires first, then unplug the unit from the wall for at least 24 hours, The plug back in without the speaker wires or anything else plugged in. Then see if it goes to the protection mode. If it does not, plug in each speaker at a time, and see if any speaker, when hooked up, makes the receiver shut down. If it does shut down, My friend, I'm afraid you will need to take this unit into a repair shop, OR get a new unit. Good Luck
