Question about Onkyo TX-SR875 Receiver

1 Answer

My Onkyo TX-SR 876 turns right back off within 10 seconds of turning it on. I can see the display panel for about 3-4 seconds then it goes off and the red standby light goes into a blinking mode. Any suggestions for a fix? Thank you so much.

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.

Hello, you seem to be in technician test mode. Unplug the receiver for an hour, turn on and perform a reset by holding vcr/dvr and then on/standby. This should resolve your issue. Thank you, Onkyo USA

Do you want to turn off the whole display?

There is a 3-way Dimmer on the front panel and the remote controller. The manual doesn't say if it will turn completely OFF.

Onkyo TX-DS989 not staying on


This sounds like the action of some protection circuit that is monitoring some condition or voltage that isn't within its design limits. If it was mine, I'd look for an Onkyo forum to see if others have experienced the same problem.

No display on my sr875 the next time i turned it on..i have no clue waht happend..it was just working fine yesterday,now, it suddenly shows one issue that needs to be resolve..i did everything i cud do but...


The 10 Ohms resistor R9304 in series with the the 44V display power supply was open.

How to find it:
Remove the to cover.
On the right hand side of the front panel you will see on the side a wide white flat cable going toward the back of the receiver.
Beside it is a 4 black wire band connecting the front panel to a 3x4cm power PCB which is parallel with the front panel inside the receiver (attached to the front frame).
It has visible on the left side a diode bridge and a fuse - above the fuse you can find the R9304, a SFR16 package (1x3.5mm) marked BrownBlackBlack.
Check continuity.Replace if open wit a 1W resistor
Good job ONKYO, save 1/3 of a penny...

For the DIY:
As an added step I replaced the R9304 with a 2W 47R resistor, replaced the series transistor regulator Q9301 (tall TO92) with a bigger package (isolated TO220) and one of the two series 22V zenners from the base - D9310 - with a 10V one.
Output voltage drops from 44V to 34V, display is slightly dimmer but overall stress is down.

Good luck!

No Sound


Called Onkyo and here is the solution they gave me.

1. Turn on unit.

2. Press and hold VIDEO 1 button.

3. While pressing VIDEO 1, press Speaker A button.

4. You should see "CLEAR" on the display for a second and it will go on stand-by mode.
.
5. Turn on the unit and check if sound is back.

Hope this helps
