    probably for about 10yrs.

    I would have a "Pro" do the repairs. Do you think it's worth have it repaired? We haven't had any problems with it until now.

  • marylouise Apr 27, 2008

    So, if I disconnect the speakers how will I know if that solves the problem. I won't be able to hear anything, will I?

  • marylouise Apr 27, 2008

    would you answer my last question, please. Regarding disconnecting the speakers.
    thanks mary

  • marylouise Apr 28, 2008

    I see. Can I get back to you later on this? I will try the speaker thing.
    thanks

    My son also determined that it wasn't the speakers. But I thought I would see what the experts said before I took it somewhere.
    I will get back to you on this later in the week. Will you be available?

That means that your amp is taking its sweet time going completely down the tubes(so to speak)...had it for a while?

    long time good sound, eh? well...what you are experiencing is a pre failure mode..did you plan on doing the tech yourself, or having a pro do it?

  • Patrick Michaels

    try it with only one set of speakers, and see if maybe it's a load issue..in fact, disconnect all the speakers, and see if it's still doing it.

    Patrick Michaels Apr 27, 2008

    well..based on a cost value estimate, most likely not..parts will be a major issue..

    just the clicking from inside the amp..I'm trying to isolate the problem to the amplifier

  • Patrick Michaels
    Patrick Michaels Apr 27, 2008

    thought I did..I'd like the speakers off the circuit to determine if the clicking and shut down is from the amplifier end, or caused by a possible blown or near blown speaker element. both can cause that .

I have an Onkyo TX SR505 receiver which for some reason, while watching TV or listening to music, there will be a click heard in the speakers and the sound will be gone. I'll shut off the receiver and turn...


It's probably self-protecting from heat build-up.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect 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.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

When I turn on my Onkyo DTR7 receiver, I donot get any sound at the speakers. Normally there is a click, when I turn it on, but I no longer hear that sound. occassionally it will work, if I turn it on...


You must re-seat the HDMI board on and try. sometimes the connections come loose and causes the connection to the Relay trigger not to work.

No sound coming out of speakers something is wrong with the receiver


check if it goes to protection mode on power on. see to it that speaker selector switch is set.

Is your speakers connected properly?

Is your music source ok?

Do you hear a click after you switch on the power? the click indicates that the time-on delay transfers the amps output to the speakers which prevents thumps going out to the speakers.

Once it goes to protection mode you need to have it serviced. This is due to a fault in one of the amps and that it protect the speakers from further damage.
