Question about Onkyo TX-SR503 Receiver

Amp Protection Mode

My Onkyo HT-R530 is in amp protection mode. Onkyo does not have an authorized service dealer in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and suggested I ship it to their regional service center in Michigan. Before I do that, I would like to know if this is just a fuse that I could repair myself. Thanks, Blake

No, your output transistors maybe 2 of them are gone or the small power supply that feeds the other circuitry has become defective.

Turntable with onkyo HT-R530

You cannot plug in a turn table to this receiver because it does not have a pre-built pre-amp. So unless your turn table comes with a pre-built pre-amp you cannot use it with this receiver.

Amp goes to protection mode. if the fuse is too small?

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. . Double check all connections. Good luck.
A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. Worth fixing.

ONKYO HT 502

Protection mode is engaged when a problem is detected internally. Unless you have crossed the speaker wires, the problem is likely to be a defective component or two inside the amp. This is a relatively common fault for all amplifers at one time or another. The typical cause is shorted output transistors. These parts cost anywhere from $5-$15 each and are replaced in pairs. The best thing to do here is to get a detailed repair estimate from a local repair shop ($50 or so) and report the results here. We should be able to walk you through the actual repair with that info in hand. Dan

Onkyo 9555 protection circuit

Make shure your speaker wiring is solid hookup to amp and spekers (NO CROSSED WIRING). Also make shure speakers are not wired in parallel or the speaker impeadance will be to low and amp will kick out.Turn speakers off then hook up headphones and crank up volume then see if amp kicks out.If it does you have an internal overload and needs serviced. If it playes ok then you must have speaker problems or wiring.
GOOD LUCK

Amp Protection Mode

from LANCE P: I fixed it. Be sure that all your speaker connections are perfect. No element frays that can arc, no +/- problems, no single barely connected wire. My problem was volume sensitve and I evidently had one + wire that was loose in the back. I corrected it and ran it all day with surround and good volume with no problems. So diligently check ALL YOUR SPEAKER CONNECTIONS, both in the back of the unit and at your speakers
