I would guess that the unit is in "protect" mode. listen carefully when you turn on the receiver. You should hear a click followed shortly thereafter by another. If you do not hear the second one, the unit is in protect. This means that a problme has been detected in the output amplifier section and hte receiver will disable it to prevent further damage. The typical problem is shorted output transistors. Expect a parts cost of $12-$25. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost.

Hi doodles mom

thats an odd one,if it worked earlier, how come not now. I would suggest trying a hard reset of the unit by powering it down completely by unplugging it from the wall for 30 mins. Then fire it up again and see if it clears the fault. This is like the first thing to do when this sort of problem occurs. If it is the same, please get back to me here.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

I have this onkyo receiver and while we were watching tv, the audio just cut out and never came back. we've reset the receiver, checked the connections and no sound anywhere. when we power up our system,...


My SR607 also cuts out from time to time. My experience is that this is an issue of overheating, and protection circuits shut the thing down. Once it cools, seems to work ok. I have plenty of space around the unit, but still it seems to overheat, especially when playing hi-def / digital audio material.

'protect' blinked and then no sound or display


Disconnect the outside speakers "at the speakers" then turn back on. If the problem persists, disconnect the speakers at the back of the receiver and try again. If the problem stops "at the receiver" check your terminals and make sure no braids are touching each other. If the problem stops when you disconnect at the speaker, chances are good it's a bad voice coil from moisture. Most "outdoor" speakers with a brand name on them have a pretty good warranty. Good speakers have a 10 year warranty and the manufacturer will replace. If you still have an issue, post a comment and I can help you some more

JVC RX-884VBK RECEIVER


The JVC RX-884VBK is a great machine, I had it for over 5 years and had no problem at all. I came across the (NO SOUND at all) and I believe it is an easy fix. Check the Front left, there are 2 keys marked 1 and 2 for SPEAKERS output, sometimes you don't notice that you connected the speakers to 1 and the 2 key is pressed. You could have both keys pressed and you will get the sound. I hope that helps.

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

"Check Speaker Wire" error on my Yamaha Receiver


found the source of the problem with "Check SP Wires"! to solve it is necessary to check each speaker connected to the device Yamaha on the rear panel (red and black) using the device for determining the number of ohms, which shall not be less than 4 ohms, in large passive speakers experienced in Amfitone AU-027, the result showed that left at 0.45 (7) ohms, and the right-hand column, as such, no.
The successful test ... and good music!

overload, usually means that is overloaded. i've had the receiver for about 4 or 5 years now and never had problems with it. It was sitting ontop on my tv for those 4 or 5 years, and i haver noticed it untill just recently, (when i bought a new tv and i had to get a stand for it, and i had to stick the receiver in it)that is runs very hot, very quickly; Maybe that is the problem you are having now, that the thins is older and maight be able to handle it as it id b4. Maybe you made some changes to your set up: new speakers, etc.
