Onkyo HT-RC360 The receiver has a clicking sound when powered on. then turns off

Onkyo HT-RC360 The receiver has a clicking sound when powered on. It show a quick message saying check speaker wire before it turns off. The display only shows the message for about half a second before powering off. I hope its just a capacitor issue lol.

    I ended up finding a blown capacitor on the lfa board it says left channel im not sure if that is any help the receiver still did not work after i fixed that but when i turn on with the hdmi board unplugged it just clicks on and off with out shutting off completely i bought a multimeter and tested the rest of the caps and the board for resistance it was all good don't know were to go from here

  • neil yergeau Apr 09, 2012

    I fixed it was bad sadder joints one power board and were you connect the speaker wire but onkyo real needs to up there quilty control these year but i got 175 dollor receiver so score thanks for the help guys

  • neil yergeau Apr 09, 2012

    Yea i though i was sleek for a little while started to put it back together and turned it on nothing i took the front off a little and got it too turn on agian when i powered down and up one more time a power transistor blew part number SK C4468 i guess that was my problem all along if any one knows were to get that part in ameriica i would appreciate it i don't feel like ordering from china on ebay takes to long thanks

  • neil yergeau Apr 16, 2012

    I was able to get the receiver to power on now it stays on and has audio but when i turn it up to 45 the audio goes silent it still says check speaker wire some times when i start up if i don't hold the power in. what could this be any help would be great

  • neil yergeau Apr 17, 2012

    I think i might have found the problem need help identifying the part i think its an bio transistor not sure it small and sits in between the power transistor i fixed under the heatsink for checking around the net this is my problem because it could be causing the clipped channel not allowing me to louder the volume. Any help with this part would be great i need to fix now

  • neil yergeau Apr 21, 2012

    I got the part in and installed it and still can not for the life of me get the receiver to go past 45 in volume then the sound cut off. But while playing with the front cover i was able to get it to stay on louder to 65 before shutting off only if i pulled one of the corners weird i don't know what it could be.

  • neil yergeau Apr 26, 2012

    I think i found a bad 5.1 zener diode is that the part i want to look up or are there different voltages for them i have to look out for.

  • neil yergeau May 08, 2012

    Still got a bad left channel it still says check speaker wire when i hook everything up it works up to about 45-55 volume and then would shut off rear left channel will shut the receiver down a lot earlier if plugged in. I am just not sure what is causing the problem now. Any ideas would be great.

  • neil yergeau May 08, 2012

    One more thing double checked with headphones plugged in it work 100% does not power off weird i wish i had this working been on this project for awhile.

No! I'am afraid not, if you have checked your wires carefully and it checked, the audio output semiconductors will require a technician to remedy the problem.

    I would check the audio drivers and outputs, I still think that is where the problem is.

  • John Cunningham Apr 09, 2012

    Well done!

  • John Cunningham Apr 09, 2012

    Tried to cross reference with NTE data, no luck !

  • John Cunningham Apr 16, 2012

    From your description the audio outputs are the problem, this is where a circuit diagram would be helpfull to locate the other trouble area's, because I think we are dealing with several parts that probably need changing including the drivers.

  • John Cunningham Apr 17, 2012

    This is a driver transistor, usually there are 2 per channel but not always the case. I would remove the suspect transistor so you can read off the numbers, if luck is with you that will be the crux of the problem. If each channel has a pair, "change both" and if the numbers are different for each it is probably a push pull operation, "meaning they switch back and forth" class B operation.

  • John Cunningham Apr 21, 2012

    I think a circuit diagram would be helpfull at this point.

  • John Cunningham Apr 26, 2012

    Yes! there are different voltages present in zener diodes depending on part number. There should be a number on it, or you can measure the opposite channel giving you the exact voltage for the same part.

  • John Cunningham May 08, 2012

    A circuit diagram is the only thing at this point that will help resolve, however the headphones usually tap off the pre-amp stage leaving the audio outputs as your target, one or more may have leakage that increases as the volume is raised causing it to shut down

SOURCE: won't power up; push power button on, hear click in back left of unti, get nothing on front display and no output from speakers; as if unit trying to operate

Disconnect the speakers and see what happens. Carefully examine the speaker cables for unwanted connections (shorts).
Take a clue from when the power problem appeared. Something was moved and made the buzz a (probable) dead short.

SOURCE: Kenwood Receiver KR-a5020 receiver won't come out of standby

The unit is in what is commonly known as "protect" mode. This means that a problem has been detected in the final output stage of the amp and the outputs are shutdown to prevent further damage to either the receiver or speakers. This should not be a difficult repair for a service shop. Expect a parts cost in the $25-$40 range. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost.

SOURCE: Powered Or Unpowered Subwoofers For Onkyo TX-8511

Greg- Powered subs are better than non-powered subs (also known as passive subs), anyway I see the TX-8511 has no sub pre-out on the back panel, so you need to decide what sub you will use and run from the receivers left and right speakers output into a subwoofers speaker in from speakers then back out to speakers, look at the back of a subwoofer and you will see like 4 sets of speaker hookups 2 in and 2 out, what this does is takes the low end or bass and drops the signal to the subwoofer then takes the mids and highs out to your left and right speakers, unless your regular left and right stereo speakers have large woofers a sub is the way to go.

We have "HT R670" and "HT R360" A/V Receivers with questions regarding Universal Remotes and Android Apps.

The Onkyo App will not work with the HT-R670. This receiver is part of the HT-S6200 Home Theater package and is not network compatible. You might be able to use the Logitech Harmony Hub and app or another remote control app paired with an IR repeater pointing at the receiver. Some universal remotes may support changing the inputs on the receiver. However, I don't know of any specific model that will work. The Logitech Harmony remotes are probably the most likely to support the Input button; it may take programming a specific button to match the receiver's Input function. If you need a replacement for the original remote, one source is . The manual for the HT-S6200 is available here: .

I can't find an Onkyo HT-R360 listed even as part of home theater system. There is an Onkyo HT-RC360. The manual for that is . While this model has a network connection, it is not compatible with the Onkyo app either.

I wish that I had better news for you.

HT-RC360 no longer feeds video to my TV .

Update firmware (usually every 6 months). Connect the ethernet to the unit, press Net and Power button simultaneously. Hit Enter as directed. Takes up to 60 minutes. OR (if no internet service), download firmware updates onto a USB (32MB) and connect it to the USB port. If you do not update voluntarily, unit will suddenly not feed video.

When power button turned on, receiver powers up

I have had the same problem with my new Onkyo HT-S 5305B (A/V Receiver + 5.1 speakers). To solve this, try to follow "Troubleshooting" guide that came with your system. I followed it 2-3 times. In my final attempt, when system was not shutting down but stayed-n with no sound, I played with the setup and tried changing audio adjustment, input, dimension etc. and slowly I was able to get speakers up one after the other. It's working fine now.
However, I am little concerned that why such a high-class Onkyo system failed in less than two days, forcing me to troubleshoot. - Apurva

I have an Onkyo HT-S6100 home theater not sending picture to TV.

I just fixed mine with the same problem. Apparently, the HT-R667 and 606 receiver that comes with 6100 has a problem with the HDMI board. Onkyo wanted $500 dollars to fix it, costed me $16. Here's how to fix it.

Power on but no tuning or sound from other sources

Check for "Tape Monitor On" button. According to Onkyo's web page "Press and hold the tape button for two seconds allows the tape and MD sources to be switched - Also try the speaker A/B switch. - Check back for further assistance - The web page for your operations manual can be found at...
Then select your model.
Hope this helps

I would not suggest hooking up powered speakers to your receiver. Only if unit has sub woofer output can you hook up powered speaker
