Have you tried makeing sure that the latches, if any, are released or checking if there is something blocking the place where you insert them?

    NO LATCHES, ONLY THE SCREW DOWN POST THINGS- I UNSCREWED THEM ALL THE WAY, BUT THE WIRES STILL WON'T GO IN- THIS IS A BRAND NEW RECVR, SO DON'T THINK ANYTHING IS BLOCKING...

I had onkyo 5.1 hometheater i cant raise the volume more than 40 how can i fix the problem ?


Hi,

It could be that there is a frayed speaker wire touching the back of the receiver and when playing at a low level the speakers do not require that much power, however when the level from the speakers increases more power is required and if there is a frayed speaker wire touching the back of the receiver there could be a short causing the receiver to shut down. A way to avoid the frayed wire is to use "Banana Connectors" that the speaker wires goes to and the connector will plug into the speaker posts. Please try the following to see where the issue is coming from. Have the receiver turned off, make sure all the speaker wires are labeled, and disconnect them from the speaker terminals. Turn the receiver on select a source that would give you sound if the speakers where still connected and turn the volume all the way up. If the receiver shuts down than it would need to go to a service center as it is an internal problem with it. If the receiver does not shut down, turn the volume down, shut the receiver off and connect one speaker and than turn the receiver on selecting the same source as before and raising the volume up. If the receiver shuts down, remove that speaker from the post and connect it to another speaker post to determine if it is the receiver or the speaker itself that is giving you the problem. If the receiver should shut down after moving that speaker you know it is a problem with the speaker or the wiring. If the receiver does not shut down, turn the volume down, shut the receiver off and connect another speaker followed by doing the previous test procedure. Keep adding speakers until you have them all reconnected to the receiver as long as it has not shut off while trying the test procedure. After determining whether it is the speakers or the receiver you would need to bring either to a service center to be repaired. To locate an authorized independent service center, check the dealer and service locator at our website: www.onkyousa.com or www.integrahometheater.com, Thanks, JT

My receiver said check sp wire because it is turning of every time


look like you have speakers wires connection issue.
Here is what you can do:
speaker input connector (where attach wires from receiver) 1 is negative and 1 positive post.
Check your receiver output wires positive wires must go to position post in the back of speakers same as negative wire from receiver connect to negative post in the back of your speakers.
Some receiver allow you mix match connection but you will not get good quality sound (low performance)
Hope it help

I cant get any sound to come out of the receiver. I checked that the speaker wires are not touching. if it is in protection mode how do I get that turned off


Good start checking your speaker wires. A better test would be to disconnect them entirely in case there's a short inside the speaker itself. Keep the volume WAY down when you power back up and see if it runs for a while. If it does, then you do have a short somewhere - probably inside speaker. If it trips off, you might want to think in terms of getting the problem fixed rather than defeating the protection circuit.

The most common problem found on FixYa for Audio Video Receiver's is:

My receiver say's "Protect" or turns on then off. What's wrong? Seven times out of ten it is a shorted speaker or speaker wire. To determine your exact problem, the first step is to disconnect all speaker wires "at your receiver" Next: Turn the receiver back on. If your receiver still says "protect" or turns off, it needs to be serviced. If your receiver stays on; reconnect your speakers one at a time and power back up after each speaker. You may find that after reconnecting all speaker wires it works! Most commonly the small braids of wire from the + to the - have touched and have caused the problem. In some instances, you noticed the problem only when turning the volume up. either way, make sure the exposed wires to your receiver are no longer than 1/2" long and are completely under the screw down terminal or slide in. When you've found the wire or speaker with the problem, your receiver will go back into "protect" At this point, disconnect the wire from the speaker at the speaker that may be causing the problem then test again.* Note* Make sure speaker wires do Not touch each other as this Will cause a short! If you turn the receiver back on and it stays on, you now know the problem is in your speaker itself. To test your speaker, you will need a multimeter. Set it to ohms resistance and touch the speaker terminals, if there is a short internally the meter will read "1......" If it's an analog meter, it will peg to the right. There's your problem. Now, within any speaker there are quite a few possibilities as to what could be causing the problem. Most common is a blown coil and the speaker needs to be replaced. Some speakers have internal crossovers (usually floor standing speakers) and may have a shorted or burnt board (usually very visible brown burn marks on the board) and can possibly be repaired if your handy with a soldering iron. Now, if you disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and it still says "protect" Check your wire for the obvious cut or nail thru the wire if possible. If your system has wiring that runs behind walls, you may need to use your meter again. Disconnect the wire at both ends, keep the ends separated, put your meter on ohms resistance and touch probes to the + and - wires at one side. If the meter pegs to the right or reads "1...." the wire is shorted and needs to be replaced or repaired at the short. Hope this helps.

I cant get the speakers to work the speakers have wire does the wire with the white stripe go in red or black?


well on the back of the receiver it should say whether or not the wire you plugged in is positive or negative, all you do from there is match positive to positive and negative to negative (red is positive)
