Question about Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver

Onkyno receiver shuts off

My onkyno receiver shutss at about 42 decibels I just added 2 speakers to a 7.1 system My SR605 gets extremely hot. This is especially true when both amplifiers are running together supporting 2 separate channels. I added a 2 way speaker selector from Russound that supports 2 sets of 8 ohm speakers on Zone 2 and the receiver shuts down at about 74 dcbs and gets very hot. Checked the jumpers on the selector and they are set at 8ohms.

Have returned the Russound selector to them and had it checked out. Appears to be fine. Even when Zone 2 is not in use the receiver gets extremely hot. It is in a wood cabinet wih glass doors but even with the door open the temperture is very hot. As the volume is raise the heat increases and the receive trips off.

Very unusual in my opinion. Is this normel for the receiver to heat up as the volume is increased.

    Your system is overheating, if it is piled underneath some other devices, remove them, if it keeps overheating you will need to have the termic sensor or the internal fan replaced.

    Heating up as the volume is increased is normal, the Amp waste more energy and dissipates more heat to produce higher volume signal.

    Check if your system has a fan, in this case that can be an easy fix, check also if system remains on with cover open.

    I have the same problem with a Phillips receiver that has no fan. It is running hot and goes into standby. No dusk, debris or speaker wires touching each other. Would a laptop cooling unit work? If it is the sensor, how do you identify it and replace it?

My reciever keeps shutting of at a low volume, I have un plugged all the speakers and cables and it still shuts off. Any suggestions?


Hello,i suggest you do an up close inspection of the speaker terminals,i often find a small copper strand of speaker cable is shorting between the positive and negative cables.You will want to inspect both outside and inside the cabinet ,while unplugged of course.

Won't turn on.standby light on,fuse under cover is good.what next? onkyo tx-sr605


The only thing to test would be to disconnect all speaker wires at the receiver then turn it back on. If it still won't turn on, it's an internal power supply issue and will need service. If it turns on, post a comment and I can walk you thru further troubleshooting. Hope this helps

Every time I try to turn on my onkyo receiver it turns off instantly


the reason why the receiver probably keep turning off is that the systems come with overload protector to keep one from burning or short the systems out so it shut its self off. make sure you have the speaker wires is connected properly, its very important that you do although the receiver has 0% tolerance when it come to speakers hook up. positive from speaker to positive connector behind reciever; same as negative. double check all speakers wires. repost if that not an issue

Blinking standby button


Hi...1st off ...make sure all the speakers are connected at both ends.
2nd..buy a new cat..one that doesnt drool.
If it's still stays in Stdby after checking speakers, It might have blown an internal fuse cause thats where those darn stereo people put them now.

Zone 2


I am sure this isn't it, but if all components are connected digitally Zone 2 won't work. It only allows analog connections, so anything attached via HDMI, etc. will not be able to be output to Zone 2.
