It sounds like protect circuit is kicking in due to excessive current. If an OHM meter is handy, check for shorts on your speakers. If not disconnect one speaker at a time from the back of the reciever. Play unit at the volume that it fails. If it then plays fine you've isolated the bad speaker.

My hometheater onkyo ht-s 3500 problem increCVasing volume level 45 cut off amplifier


Hello KAMAL, This means that the unit is going into protect mode. This is typically caused by something internal or a speaker connection could be causing it. To isolate if it is a speaker or the receiver you would first have to turn it off and disconnect all of the speakers. Turn the unit back on and turn the volume up to 45 with no speakers connected. If the unit stays on then you will know that one of the speakers was causing this short to happen. If that is the case I would check all of your connections. If the unit turns off when the receiver has no speakers connected then it is an internal issue and it would have to go for service. Thanks, FJD

I set the volume to 40. After a little while the volume starts dropping down. If you do not turn the volume back up the volume will eventually go to zero all by it self and turn off the system.

Yamaha rx-v530 volume maxes out when turned on


If you are using the remote to raise the volume of the unit, my advice is to forget that function, and turn volume manually. I had a similar problem with a Sony receiver and the solution was simply to put aside the remote. Remotes are infra-red based, and if you have other components with infra-red this can cause undesired interference and malfunction. Good Luck.

The signal select is set to analog but it still turns off when the volume is slightly turned up, can you tell me why?


Sounds like the receiver is defaulting to "protect mode", this indicates that there is an electrical short present in the system, I have found that speakers or speaker wires tend to be the cause often.
Disconnect all speaker wires at the back of the receiver, turn receiver on and raise the volume control and see if the receiver still shuts down, if the receiver doesn't shut off, then one of the speakers or speaker wires are bad, reconnect one speaker at a time, raise volume and see if the speaker you connected causes the receiver to shut down, if not continue connecting the speakers one at a time, testing to see if the receiver shuts down after each speaker connected, when the receiver faults to "protect mode" again after you have connected a speaker then you know that the last speaker you connected is the "blown" or shorted speasker or wire.If the receiver still shuts off after disconnecting all speaker wires, then either one of your sources has a problem(DVD,CDplayer,cass deck,etc.) or the receiver has an internal short that will have to be repaired by a servicer.

Good Luck !

My Denon AV-3801 will just turn itself off if volume is turned up. I have checked for crossed wires and such,not sure what is going on. Any answers?


Disconnect all speaker wires at the receiver, then turn it back on. Turn up the volume. If it shuts down, it needs to be serviced. If it stays on, reconnect speakers one at a time and turn on the receiver then turn up volume. When you find the speaker that causes the receiver to shut down, disconnect the wire at the speaker and re- test. make sure wires are separated. If it shuts down, replace the wire, if it stays on, meter the speaker itself to check for a bad vioce coil. If you don't have a meter, you can take the speaker to any audio shop or Radio Shack and they will usually test it for free. Hope this helps.
