Disconnect all your speakers from the receiver. Turn the power on, and see if it stays on. If the unit shuts off with all the speakers disconnected, then you most likely have a faulty unit, and it will need to be repaired or replaced.
If the unit stays on with all the speakers disconnected, then you most likely have a bad speaker or a bad connection with the speaker wire.
Starting with one speaker, hook it up, and turn the unit on, and again see if the unit stays on, or if it shuts off. Do this until the unit shuts off when you connect a speaker.
Then disconnect all the other speakers, and leave the suspect speaker attached. Again, try to power up the unit. If it fails with that speaker attached, but works when it is not attached, then that speaker is your problem.

Check it without speaker connection. If the set does not go to protection mode, check all the speakers by connecting one by one at a time and switch the set ON; to find the faulty speaker. If the set goes to protection mode even no speaker connected, check and replace damaged components at its audio output section circuit. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

The best method is - DON'T. When you hook more than one speaker up to a single speaker output, it drops the impedance that the receiver sees and you risk blowing the amp. If you need to hook more than one up, do so through a speaker switch box. It will match the impedance correctly so the amp doesn't get damaged.
First do not panic by seeing all sockets in the back side of the receiver.You can connect 5 speakers and one subwoofer on the speaker A switch and maybe a second pair of stereo speakers on the B switch.All the speaker sockets have red and black terminals, so do all speakers. Just get decent cables ( You can buy a whole connection Kit if you want ) and connect the corresponding outlets to you speakers.If you have a powered subwoofer connect the subwoofer input to a socket labeled Subwoofer pre out on the RXV. You will need a RCA to RCA cable for that Next you will need a coaxial or Optic fiber cable to connect a DVD player digitally. The back of the DVD player will have a socket marked coaxial out, and so does the RXV's backside. Just link them . Turn on the system everything should work. If you are not getting DVD sound there is small button on the RXV front panel called Digital input -- set it to auto ( keep pressing the button and it will scroll through various modes). Also remember to switch on speaker A on the front panel.
First, perform a visual inspection at the back of the unit and verify that speaker wires are not loose or shorting out with another connection. Find the impedance selector switch and verify that it is set to the proper position according to your speakers' impedance. It has to be all the way up or down, never in the middle. (Warning: Do not move the impedance selector while the receiver is powered. Make sure power is OFF on in standby, otherwise receiver will be damaged). Try power ON.
If these actions do not cure the problem, disconnect all speakers and try power ON again. If the unit powers on, it is possible that one or more of your speakers or wires are damaged. If none of the above actions fixes the problem, it is very possible that the receiver's internal circuitry is damaged.
This was happening to mine also, all of a sudden. This solution came from the owners manual. Sure enough, the impedance selector was stuck in the middle , between 4 and 8 ohms....I also, made sure the speaker wires were not touching each other at the splice. Problem fixed. B
The unit fails to turn on when STANDBY/ON is pressed, or set in the standby mode suddenly soon after the power has been turned on.
The power cord is not plugged in or the
plug is not completely inserted.
The IMPEDANCE SELECTOR switch
on the rear panel is not fully set to the
upper or lower end.
Firmly plug in the power cord.
Set the switch fully to the upper or
lower end when the unit is in the
