When a receiver does this, it is know as the "protect mode". This keeps the receiver from causing more damage to the components in it, by shutting it off when it detects an abnormal amount of voltage or current.

If you had to replace the fuses, it is most likely that you have a blown channel in the receiver.

You put 8 amp fuses in, so I hope that the fuses that blew were 8 amps as well. If you put fuses in that are higher rated in amps than the ones that blew, you will most likely cause more damage to the unit than need be. If the fuses keep blowing, please stop putting new fuses in again until the unit is repaired. Every time a fuse blows, it is because of too much current is going thru the unit. Having too much current is a very bad thing for electronics, it causes components to short out and sometimes even catch fire if the fuse is higher rated than it is supposed to be.

To find out just what parts will need to be replaced, you need a multimeter and then you will need soldering tools to remove the bad parts and put the new ones in.

When an amplifier channel gets blown, there are normally around 5 to 10 parts that will need to be replaced. If you do not replace every single bad part in the channel that has blown, you will most times blow up all the new parts that you just put in.

If you have no experience with electronics, you really should take it in to a service center for repair. If you are willing to try it yourself, let me know and I will guide you thru the troubleshooting steps to help you identify all the faulty components.

Onkyo is very well made equipment and is worth getting fixed.

A blown channel can normally be repaired for around $100 to $150, just depending on the shops rates and the extent of the damage.

Let me know if you need more help.

I have an Onkyo AV Receiver HT-R500 and when I turn it on, it turns on and in less than one second it turns back to standby. What could be wrong?.


Try disconnecting all the speakers and see if it does the same thing. If it doesn't, connect speakers again one at a time to find out which one of them is doing it. Make sure the speakers rating match the output of the amp.

Is there a fuse in this amp? is it replaceable without soldering?


Hi, blowing a fuse in an amplifier is a problem that most guitarists face at one time or another. If an amp won't turn on, or it turns on for a second, then makes a popping sound and turns off, the problem is usually a blown fuse. Though a blown fuse can be a hassle, especially during a performance, it does not have to put a stop to your musical enjoyment. With a spare fuse you can be back jamming to your favorite tunes in no time flat.

Things You'll Need

Fuse.

Instructions

Turn off the amplifier and unplug it from the wall.

Locate the fuse, which is usually found at the back of the amp. The fuse will look like a small black wheel sticking out of the amp with a number and the letter V next to it. For example, 9V.

Gently turn the fuse counter-clockwise to remove it from the amp.

Discard the old fuse.

Insert the new fuse into the empty fuse slot and turn it clockwise until it is firmly in place.

Plug in the amplifier; make sure the power switch is in the off position.

Turn the amplifier on to make sure the new fuse is working properly.



Hope it helped..

Mazda rx8 flooded .brakedown come tried to start engine turned over !then starter got hot ,now dosnt turn over just clicks? any wdvice please


Your problem is common in the RX-8. It occurs when you start a cold engine and shut it off before it reaches normal operating temperature. If your car does flood, you can first try depressing the accelerator completely and holding it (which shuts off the fuel pump) and then crank the motor for about 10 seconds (not longer or you may damage your starter). If this procedure above does not work, here is the technique a Mazda dealership will normally use (to be performed at your own risk): 1. Use jumper cables to connect to another car battery. 2. Unplug Air pump connector (the black circular motor housing to the left of the oil filler cap) 3. Take fuel pump fuse out (number 22, a 20 amp, 3 from the top of the second column of the fuse box 4. Crank for 4 seconds, pause for 2 seconds, repeat for about a minute 5. Leave for a minute 6. Crank for 4 seconds, pause for 2 seconds, repeat for about a minute 7. Put fuel pump fuse back in 8. Crank for up to 10 seconds, if it catches but doesn?t start, stop cranking 9. If not started go back to step 3 10. If started, wait 30 seconds for oil pressure to rise 11. Stand on throttle until white smoke stops coming out of the exhaust 12. Disconnect jump leads 13. Leave to warm up on idle for a few minutes 14. Put air pump connector back on (see note 3) 15. Go for a nice long drive to recharge the battery
