    I had this problem for a while, then I couldn't get it to turn on unless I unplugged the unit. Now, that doesn't even work. I cannot get it out of standby mode.

    I can turn it on, and it immediately shuts off. The standby button continues to flash. My troubleshooting page mentioned the Amplifier protection circuitry has been activated. How do you deactivate it?

Every time i turn it on it shut off onkyo r-500 receiver


Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

When i push power button clicks on immediately


I had this problem also and discovered an easy way to trick it into powering on: Click the power button, then within 1 second of the receiver powering off, click the power button again. The receiver should stay on this time. This works with both the button on the receiver and the remote control.
I would like to know what causes this problem and whether or not I should be concerned about damage being done. I assume this is a power protection. I haven't tried plugging this receiver into a different power socket to test, but I don't think the power plug is the problem. Note: I have the subwoofer plugged into the power plug on the back of the receiver.

My rxv 1800 wasnt used for probably a year but was left plugged to a wall outlet during that time it wasnt used. when i came home last week, i switched it on but immediately shuts off after a second. when...


r this one: Switc off your receiver using the main power button on the front face. Hold the the Effect button and the Direct button, and turn the main power ON.f it ain't working, try this one: Turn your receiver ON and, while holding down the [VCR1] button, press the [STANDBY/ON] button. "Clear" might appears on the display and your receiver might enter Standby mode.
Hope it does.. With your receiver in the Standby mode, hold on STRAIGHT (EFFECT) on the front panel and press STANDBY/ON.
* The ADVANCED sETUP menu appears in the front panel display.ress STRAIGHT (EFFECT) to select the desired setting.
RESET = To reset your receiver to its factory presets.
CANCEL = To cancel without making any changes Press STANDBY/ON to confirm your selection.
* If you selected "RESET", your receiver is reset to its factory presets and switches to Standby mode good luck

After turning in my receiver, it immediately turns back off.


Sounds like it's going in to safe mode. This can be caused by a number of things but the first thing to look at is a failed output amp.

Microprocessor reset.

For US and Canada:

  1. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, then plug it back in while holding down the POWER key.

For other countries:

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
