Some components inside the amp are failing and need to be replaced. Contact a professional service center to get it repaired.

    It's power supply may me faulty.If you are not familiar whith electronic repairs better take it to an authorized service station to checkit.

    Otherwise remove cover and inspect all components at power supply board area. Pay attention at electrolytic capacitors over 100 V and if you can replace them with new of same value .

    1. Disconnect everything (from the back of the receiver) including the
    power cord. Let it remain disconnected for at least 30 minutes. This
    is what we call a hard reset. It will recover any software corruptions.



    2. Then plug in the power cord and connection only one speaker. They try powering it up again.



    3. If it powers up, now, add one speaker at at time. Turn power off
    while you are connecting the speaker wires. (If you accidently short
    the wires together while the set is ON it can do damage).



    4. If the reciever did NOT come on after the reset you will need
    service. It probably has an activated protection circuit that has
    turned the set OFF. This is most often the result of shorted down
    output transistors - but can be from other causes as well. The most
    often causes for shorted output transistors is playing it too loud for
    a long period of time or shorted conditions in the speaker wiring.



    5. If the receiver has a blown audio power amp you will need a
    technician to repair it; you should not attempt it by yourself. At
    least not on an Onkyo.



    6. To replace a set of outputs on one amplifier will cost you around $50 to $100 depending on what has failed.



    Let me know if you need further help.

    Hello freya39200,

    This is the typical indication of a circuit failure in the unit. Could be a problem with the adjustable turn-off delay and a phase switch. If
    you are using the remote control to turn on the unit, be sure its
    batteries are good. If that does not help or the same thing happens
    when you use the power button on the unit, there is something certainly
    wrong. You may want to look for a shorted wire to a speaker, but that
    is about all you can do.


    It is probably worth sending in to
    Onkyo for repairs or going to one of their service centers. I suggest
    that you contact Onkyo (www.onkyousa.com) and ask them for assistance.



    Sorry I can not suggest any more specific fix for the problem, but
    there can be any number of failures that can cause this problem. Only a
    shop and technician with the tech data can find the problem and cure it.

Amp shutting down when volume gets too high


Easy! You either have a surround speaker wired backwards or there is a break in the wire leading to a surround speaker that is allowing the +&- to arc together. your amp shutsvoff as a protection to keep the arc from reaching the mother board. replace your wires man!!

Amp keeps shutting off


• Check again with no speakers connected, if it doesnt shut off,

Check speaker system, connect one at a time to find the cause.


• If the receiver still shuts down without the speakers,

troubleshoot inside the unit.

My kenwood vr-616 keeps cutting off while listining to the radio or watching the dvd, I have plugged the dvd into a different power supply and the dvd keeps playing but the system shuts off and the power...


Hi,

The unit may be overheating and shutting down to protect itself.

Please check the fan grills and make sure they are not clogged up with dust as can often happen to amps and receivers. If that is the case then a vacuum cleaner can be used to remove the dust.

If the unit is inside a cabinet try running it outside the cabinet. If it runs for longer before shutting down then this would indicate that it is overheating.

I had the same problem with my Sony home theater amp/dvd and cleaning out the dust cured the problem.

Please rate my answer if this helps.

Many thanks,

Chris

Unit comes on ,work and shuts off. Comes on again ,work for a while and shuts off.


This is a common question on this site. Amps of all types have protection circuits to keep them from doing a self meltdown. Testing follows this logic. 1. Remove all speaker wires. 2. Keep the volume down - all the way. 3. Turn the unit on. 4. If it does not trip off, then there is a problem either in a speaker or the wiring. a. Reconnect one at a time until/unless it trips off b. That will tell you where to look further.
If it does trip off, then there is an internal circuit issue in the amp and probably requires professional help to fix.

Power overload


That is a good thing, your receiver is going into "protect mode" that means the receiver is shutting down to keep from damaging delicate internal circuitry, it is sensing a speaker bottoming out or some other electrical "short" that could be damaging!
Also could be from over driveing the amp and then it starts to overheat thus going into "protect mode".
If your speakers are "clipping or distorting" turn it down, you are going to ruin your amp. Good luck !

Receiver shuts off when volume raised above 10


A fuse breaker or resetting electronic componet device attaced to the audio receiver protects the amp & speakers for destruction! The quality of the amp ,spkers& spks. wires help on choosing for protection shut downs! Of course at 10 volume you risk all of the amp in the receiver , buy a higher quality brand reciever ,intergrated amp, single amp . BE CAREFUL AT THE HIGHER VOLUME RATINGS YOU RISK HEARING DAMAGE! FOR REAL!
