Question about Pioneer VSX-918V Receiver

1 Answer

Wile moving speaker, loose wire came out and crossed. The unit imediately shut off... but now i cant get any power to the receiver it seems.. i unplugged it and plugged it back in, checked for fuses but there aren't any, and I looked for a reset button or switch and there isn't one. Tried holding down the advanced surround button with the main power on botton because that's the only thing I could find mentioned in the manual, and still nothing happens.

Yamaha RX-V793 receiver shuts down when I turn up volume. Checked the speaker wires and they seem okay. I then hooked it up to an older DVD player I had and it works fine. Don't know if it's 5.1 bu


My first thought would be that when you moved the receiver to connect another DVD, the problem quit since the speaker wires moved. The best way to test would be to re connect the original unit the same way as the new unit and test again. If it still cuts out, disconnect the speaker wires and re test. if it still cuts out, try the new player and test again. if it does not cut out, there may be a problem with the old units audio output. Generally if its a problem with the receiver it would not matter what source you are using, even the tuner on the receiver, if there was a short in the receiver it would cut out. Let me know what your results are and I will help more if needed. Best of luck!

I have an Onkyo Tsxr 577 amp. The wires on the speakers crossed and the amp stopped working. It might be in autoprotect mode and I don't know how to reset it.


The amp protection circuit has been activated. Remove the power cord from the wall outlet immediately. Disconnect all speaker cables and input sources, and leave the AV receiver with its power cord disconnected for 1 hour. After that, reconnect the power cord and reconnect an input and a pair of speaker wires onto the unit. If the receiver still does not turn on than you will have to bring it in for service. Turn up the volume and if the receiver doesn't shut down, power off the receiver and add another pair of speakers. Power up the unit again and turn up the volume. If it doesn't shut down, power off the unit again. Now connect all your input sources and turn on your receiver. If the unit shuts down again, your unit will need to be further serviced at an authorized Onkyo service center.


To obtain service, take or ship your Onkyo product to an Onkyo Authorized Service Center. Please also include in any mailing a contact name, address and telephone number. Please include a copy of the original sales receipt/invoice as well as a letter stating what the problem is, with your name address and phone number so the service center knows who to return the unit to. Please note, before shipping, you must contact the authorized service center to inform them that you will be sending your unit in for repair.

When playing dvd or or on video 3 playing a directv movie. Receiver keeps shutting off and the screen says protect. Seems to do it when the movie scene gets loud.


check your wires if there not touching behind the speakers and receiver. when it says protect this means something is shorting out or crossing over. one other thing it may be is if a speaker is starting to go bad. (please rate)

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.

My onkyo reciever (tx-ds656) powers on, then after a couple seconds says "protect" and powers down. why is this happening? rmill24@yahoo.com


"protect" comes on for 4 reasons.

1. crossed or damaged speaker wires- make sure that the positive and negative is not crossed at all. inspect the wiring for any loose strands of wire that might be crossed, touching the speaker frame or touching the metal case of the amp. look for any damage to the wires. use new speaker wires, if you need to.

2. improper speaker ohmage- verify that your speakers are 8 ohms or greater. ohmage is usually labeled on the back of the speaker, and will have the greek letter "Omega" ω next to the ohmage rating. example: 8ω or 16ω.

3. blown speaker- push in on the woofers, it should move freely for an inch or 2 before bottoming out. if it feels like its scratchy or rubbing or there is any resistance before it bottoms out, then the speaker's voice coil is melted.

4. blown amp.

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).

I have the Yamaha HTR5935 reciever- When I turn the power on, the unit stays on for about 3 seconds and then shuts itself off. So the power is running to the unit. Any ideas?


Sounds to me like you have either your speaker wires crossed, the pos and neg are touching, or a pos is touching the case of the receiver.

Denon avr-2106 getting hot shutting down


Normally when this happens it is because the impedence load is too small. This unit requires 8 Ohm speakers. If you connect 4 Ohm speakers, it will work, but work harder and generate excessive heat. If the heat is too much, the unit will enter protect mode and shut down. Once it cools off, it will work again. In your case, if the speakers are the correct impedence, check for crossed wires. If that is the problem, running the unit at higher volume levels should cause it to shutdown sooner.

Keep us posted,
Dan

Keeps shuting off


If the receiver shuts down after some time operating properly it is likely caused by a heat issue or crossed (shorted) speaker wires. Please make sure that the unit is adequately vented and the air vents/fan on the back of the receiver is clean. If it is then carefully check all of the speaker wires for cracks, damage, and/or crossed wires.
