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.

Power will not stay on


Activated protection circuitry means that the amplifier is seeing conditions it does not like and is shutting down the power to prevent further damage.
Either you have a short in your speaker wires, in your speakers, or a blown amplifier.
Disconnect both speakers and turn on the amplifier. Does it still give the error message? If it does, your amp is blown. If it does not, carefully inspect your speaker wires and their connection. Make sure all looks good and reconnect the speakers and try it again. Still get the error message? You likely have a problem in your speaker cabinet(s).

Onkyo HT-R500 amplifier protection circuitry activated

remove all speakers cables and turn it on, if remains on and u can up the volume do the next.
1: turn it off.
2: connect only 1 speaker cable (each time to see if the short is in one speaker or cable)
