TX-DS575 reverts back to standby mode when turned on
My Onkyo TX-DS575 Receiver reverts back to standby mode within seconds of the unit being turned on. A found a similar problem by a user on the net who said a resistor on the power supply side feeding the rear channel amplifiers had failed but did not specify which one.
See link below for your reference:
Has anyone else had a similar problem, and if you could advise which resistor caused the problem would save alot of time.
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.

Re: TX-DS575 reverts back to standby mode when turned on
You can find it out by yourself. I have the same device; therefore, I know that this device has a "test" function. Just unplug rear (surround) speakers at first, then test the rest of the speakers if the amp lets you do it. Hook up one of the rear speakers you regularly use to rear left or to rear right in order to test each rear channel. If one of them turns off the amp, you'll be able to understand which side feeding resistor does not work. However, if the amp goes to standby mode as soon as you hook up one of those speakers, you can alternatively invert the relevant rear speaker's input ports for a while. (+ to -, - to +) Don't forget that you have to hook up the other rear likewise. This will allow you to cheat your amp for a while, and let you test your channels without taking care of ohms.

Hold the VCR/DVR button in and press the ON/OFF Standby button. The display should briefly read CLEAR and then the unit switches off. If that clears protect mode, you'll need to redo the Audyssey and configuration setup as these will have been cleared by the reset.
I just started having the same problems with my Onkyo TX-DS575. I have to play with the DSP buttons...the A/B speaker button...and now it has gotten to the point where my family and I lift the receiver up in the front, and slam it back down on the shelf and then hit the DSP buttons again and eventually we get some sound. This unit was already fixed once by Onkyo right after the 2 year warranty ran out for a similar problem. They returned it working...but scratched. This is the second Onkyo receiver that has died an early death within 15 years. I love Onkyo's styling, ease of use and sound, but I found the best way to solve this was by purchasing the Yamaha RX-V861 this week. I am done with Onkyo.
