SOURCE: Getting a "Protect" message in the display which then shuts down

The speaker wires were al little frayed, so I cut and stripped new 3/8" leads and when re-inserted the receiver worked fine. The problem was a short from the frayed wires touching either the back of the receiver or some other metal near the terminal.

My HTR 5460 won't stay on


try pressing power while holding the 'fm/am' and 'input mode' buttons. This will tell you what part of the circuit is making it shut down. It should show something like I PROTECT, PS PROTECT, etc.

No sound. It flashes protect.


Your device has went into protection mode, an internal malfunction causes it to shut down in order to protect itself.
Somtimes a physical reset will help.
Turn of and unplug device fro a couple of hours

Yamaha 5.1 says Check SP Cable and shuts down - has been fine.


It has nothing to do with the input you choose. A speaker wire is shorted. Disconnect each one in turn and try it. The last one disconnected before it stops failing is the one.

Stuck on standby


Unit is in protect mode there are a few problems that can trigger protect mode the most common is blown channel (shorted outputs). Sometimes one of the 15v regulators may go bad causing imbalance of supplys triggering protect mode. Also sometimes a bad solder connection could cause unit to go into protect also.

Sound is There Then its Gone!


You will need to trouble shoot the audio output amp section. It sounds like the unit is in a shut down or a protection mode. Good Luck

Onkyo receiver


It sure dosent sound good!! The clicking sound you here are the protection relays to assist in protecting your speakers from blowing out. Your output devices are shorted it sounds like. Do not ever ever attemp to jump out those relays as it will burn out your speakers and possibly burn down your house!. Theres alot of current inthese amps for high power so if your not a tech and you think its worth it take the unit in to be looked at as there are no serviceable user parts inside these units . Sorry to have to tell ya this.. Good Luck
