SOURCE: My Onkyo Receiver TX 601 is turning itself off

May not help, but I had the same thing when I turned up the volume.. off it went.. then I found my two surround sound speakers had the wires shorting. Looks like a safety switch if there is a problem. Could check if the wires are crossed, shorted, and/or thick enouch to handle the volume.. test it by just having the stereo speakers enabled. Cheers,

SOURCE: Onkyo HT-R530 with powered speakers

I would not suggest hooking up powered speakers to your receiver. Only if unit has sub woofer output can you hook up powered speaker

Adjust bass control to half position then feed loud signal,if it shut off adjust the bass contol to zero position,if it shut off again the defect is in the over load protection circuit it is already sensetive to loud signal.you may call the nearest audio amplifier technician on you.

Hope it may help you,

Getting rid of captioned


"Captioned' from what video source(s)? Receivers don't create captions. Video sources or the monitor control that.

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)

I just purchased a onkyo hts6200 and when the volume is over 35 or there is a loud noise in a movie or TV show, the receiver turns itself off. Also, when I performed the speaker set up, it shut off when it...


There's a clue in that. Swap the back left and right speakers and see what happens with the setup. If it followis - it's the speaker. If it goes away there was probably somethign amiss with its wiring. Report back.

My system shot down during a movie


The reason why your receiver is going in protect is because there is a short circuit happening. This would either be on your speaker wires, speakers or receiver itself. What you want to do to check would be:
1. Unhook all sources and speakers from your receiver.
2. Turn on your receiver and crank up the volume to maximum, if your receiver does not shutdown or go on protect then the receiver is OK. If it does shutdown and go on protect then its an internal problem on the receiver and you would need to send that over to an authorized service center.
3. Hook up a source and 1 speaker. Play something from the source or the fm tuner, Crank Up the volume to about 46 or 47 volume. If the receiver does not shutdown, its good.
4. Hook up a second speaker and repeat the process until you encounter the pop and shut down
if for example you encounter the pop on the 4th speaker, try changing the speaker wires.
5. If the receiver still shuts down then it would be a short on the speaker itself and it would need to go to an authorized service center.

Volume Control


I had the same issue, there is a Late night mode on the remote that minimizes the volume of a loud scene so you don't have the constantly adjust the volume. Works great if you are trying to watch a movie while others are trying to sleep.

My Onkyo Receiver TX 601 is turning itself off


Several things can cause this: Loud signal passages can momentarily draw high currents at the mains, especially if you have unit plugged into power stripe with other equipment. Or if unit is plugged into isolation transformer, current draw may exceed output of transformer. Too many speakers hooked to output or if one is bad (partially shorted due to overheating)

Shuts off after a loud sound


Hmmm...not sure but sounds like the vibration from the loud sound is causing the disk to jump. Not sure why that would power it off, but I think your thought to junk it sounds reasonable.
