Question about Onkyo TX-SR601 Receiver
I have moved my equipment interstate and on setting everything up my receiver will not stay on. It will play for 10 minutes but when the volume is moved up the unit will turn off with a 'protect' message on the display. This will continue to happen with a shorter time between it turning off until it is immediate. The receiver will stay on after pressing play but with speakers connected it will turn off straight away. It has turned off by moving connecting wires, turning the volume up or down.
You have a short in the speaker wiring. Simply put, the pos and neg (red/black ends) of your speaker wire are most likely touching somewhere. The receiver has a short protection circuit that keeps you from blowing the receiver or your speakers. Either try re-cutting the ends of the speaker wire, or if that doesn't remedy the issue, buy new speaker wire.
