Had my surround system shipped cross country. I have it plugged in now and the power light is on indicating it's receiving power, normal for standby mode. However, I push the power button and nothing.....system doesn't turn on....when I unplug the receiver the light goes off, plug it back in and the light goes on, never turns on though....any idea? Nothing was heard jiggling around when I picked up/was carrying it...

Hi,

Largely depending on the brand & model (as well as features), some receivers will not allow power on if it senses a fault which may include but not be limited to (built-in protection):

  • internal fault such as a loose connection or a short;
  • external fault such as speaker not connected or wires shorted;
  • systems glitch, simply unplug again for an extended period of time before trying again;
  • there are even instances when the AC plug is simply plugged the wrong way.
If it were an internal fault, would of course require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back brand and model, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Standby indicator flashes


When the "Protection" indicator comes up the display panel of my receiver or the On/Standby LED is flashing, does that mean my receiver needs to be repaired?
The "Protection" light comes on when the receiver's current sensing and thermal monitors detect some unusual operating condition that, if left unchecked, might damage the amplifier. This can happen if there's a dead short in a speaker wire or if you're using very low impedance loudspeakers at high volume for an extended length of time. On older model AVRs you may see the word "Protect" on the receiver's display. More current models will indicate a flashing red light on the Standby LED when a Protection circuit trips
n thermal cases, the circuitry will automatically reset after a few minutes of cool down and the Protection indicator will go out and normal operation will resume. If the protection light came on due to a speaker wire short, low impedance condition or a bad speaker, the receiver's power will need to be turned off to reset it. Before turning the power back on, all speaker wire connections should be checked for their integrity at the receiver side and at the speaker side. If the protection light goes on immediately after you turn on the receiver, disconnect the speaker wires at the receiver side and retest. If the receiver's protection light goes off, then there would still seem to be a problem with one channel's speaker wires or speakers. Connecting them one by one and retesting should allow you to find the problem speaker or connection.
If after checking all your connections, the Protection indicator stays lit, you may need to "initialize the microprocessor (see the FAQ on that topic) or take your receiver to an authorized repair center for a diagnostic. The "Initialization of the Microprocessor" or "reset" procedure can be found in your owner's manual on current model AVR product. Please note, this will erase all setup configurations in the system and require the system to be setup again. You may want to mark down the settings before resetting your receiver to aid in the setup process. If you had an installer setup your system, you can contact them for assistance and any associated costs that may apply to setup the receiver again would be the responsibility of the owner.

All of a sudden stopped working and won't turn back on. been 12hrs. when power is pressed, it turns on for 2 seconds and then standby lights blink again and it turns off


This could be caused by a direct short circuit on the speaker outputs. Try disconnecting all the speaker connections at the back of the receiver and then power back on. You can also try a factory reset by holding the surround mode + clear button for 3 seconds.

My pioneer surround sound system has stopped working cannot turn it on and the hdmi light just flashes


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

What does code 576p indicate?


576p means 576 lines, progressive scan. 576 is number of visible lines on the UK system (and other nominally 625 line countries). The normal transmission system for these countries is 576i (interlaced scan), so I suspect that you are only seeing the 576p indication because there are no channels, and your TV is interpreting this as progressive scan.

The reason for no channels may be a poor signal from the aerial, or that the device (Humax or TV) has not been tuned. If you have power-saving enabled on the Humax, it will not pass on the aerial signal to the TV when the Humax is in standby. If this is the case, either turn power-saving off, or use a splitter to feed the aerial separately to the TV and Humax.

My Denon AVR-75 seems to stay in standby (red standby light is on) and I don'd get surround sound through it. How do I get it out of standby?


if the receiver does not power on from standby there is a problem like bad power supply or even bad macroprocessor. You need to bring it to a service center for diagnosing. 10-years old receiver, maybe better to buy new one.

My dell inspiron 1525 power light is blinking amber???


Most newer models of Dell computers now have a diagnostic LED surrounding the power button on the from of the computer. When you press the power button to boot the PC, the light should be green and remain green under normal circumstances. Any other lights will help you troubleshoot the power issue you are having.

A solid green light means the computer is operating normally.

A solid yellow light indicates the power supply is operating normally but the computer is not processing data. This could mean there is a problem with the CPu or another component on the motherboard.

A blinking yellow light indicates the power supply is receiving power from the wall, but not functioning properly. This generally means the power supply itself is bad and should be tested or replaced.

A blinking green light means the computer is in standby mode.
So use the LED power light codes if your Dell computer has them. Also pay attention to any unusual beeps or sounds coming from the computer. Then join us in our free computer tech support forums and we'll try and help you solve your PC problem. Sometimes, however, a service call to Dell will be required. If your system is still under warranty, you should always just call them first, as tampering with your computer may void your warranty.

Hope this helps!

"enter and advanced surround keys"? I don't see that documented as a special function in the manual.

BTW: other than the Flashing light, is there a malfunction?

Page 72 describes how it REALLY resets...

Resetting the main unit

Use this procedure to reset all the receiver's settings to the factory default. Use the front

panel controls to do this.


1 Switch the receiver into standby.


2 While holding down the TONE button, press and hold the STANDBY/ON button for about three seconds.


3 When you see RESET? appear in the display, press ENTER .

OK? shows in the display.


4 Press SYSTEM SETUP to confirm.

OK appears in the display to indicate that the receiver has been reset to the factory default
settings.

My Wii is all plugged in but the light is out like its unplugged. we keep unplugging and plugging it back in but it is still not working, how do I fix this?


I think you are asking about the slot illumination for the wii this is how you change it:
  1. Access the Wii System Settings.
  2. Move the cursor over the blue arrow on the right and and select it once to reach System Settings 2.
  3. Choose "WiiConnect24."

The following options will be available:

  • WiiConnect24
  • Standby Connection
  • Slot Illumination

Choose Slot Illumination
Slot Illumination (Bright, Dim, and Off)

WiiConnect24 can let you know when it has received data by making the Wii console's Disc Slot illuminate. Select the option you want, then confirm your selection.

Bright: The Wii's Disc Slot will display a bright blue light when WiiConnect24 has received new data.
Dim: The Wii's Disc Slot will display a dim blue light when WiiConnect24 has received new data.
Off: The Wii's Disc Slot will not blink when WiiConnect24 has received new data.

Try unplugging everything, including your speaker wires. It's possible that you have a damaged or crossed cable or wire causing a short that activated the receiver's internal circuit. It might have also reheated.

Let the unit sit for an hour. Plug it in (just the power), set the volume to minimum, and turn it on. If it stays on, the issue MIGHT be with a wire or connection, so you should examine all of the tires for damage or crossed connections.

Turn the receiver off, unplug it, reconnect the wires and cables. Plug it back in, make sure the volume is set to the minimum level and turn the receiver on.

Brand new avr588 receiver is turned on....is on for five seconds and then cuts off to standby


Hi donnie025,

I can't believe you haven't received an answer before now.

The red flashing light normally indicates that the protection circuit has been tripped. It can be caused by something as simple as a short in a speaker wire. Even if there is one strand of loose wire that makes contact with the back of the receiver, another wire, etc. it can cause a short. To protect itself the receiver will simply shut down.

1st. I would suggest disconnecting all the speaker wires from the back of the receiver. Then turn on the receiver (obviously you won't hear any sound) and see if the receiver does the same thing. If it does you should try disconnecting all of the source components (DVD player, Cable box etc.) and try again. If it still does it the receiver is bad and needs to be serviced or exchanged if you still can.

2nd. If the receiver stays on after you disconnect, then turn off the receiver and connect one speaker at a time, then power on the receiver at test it after connecting each speaker. This way if it suddenly shuts down after connecting a speaker you know which speaker or wire to check.

Let me know how it works out for you, I hope this helps if you haven't figured it out already.
