Disconnect the speaker wires at the receiver for zone 2 then test zone 2 on again. If it stays on, disconnect the wires at the zone 2 speakers, make sure wires are separated then reconnect at the receiver and test again. If it still stays on, Your receiver is good, your wires are good, you need to connect one speaker at a time and test power again. When it shorts, pull the speaker and meter it for a short. If your not sure how to do this, take it to any local audio shop and they will usually test for free.
If you have a volume control on zone 2 speakers independent of the receiver, you need to pull it and check it as well for corrosion or shorts.
If at the first step, your receiver still shuts off, the problem is internal and will need to be serviced. If you need further help on this, post a reply or comment and I can help you further. Hope this does the trick!
Greetings, Unfortunately the AVR2308 does not have the zone 2 video output connector needed to pass video to a second zone. The AVR2808 was the first receiver in that year lineup to offer a video output to a second zone. There are many different types of video outputs on that receiver, but they are all associated with the Main zone. This is why you loose the video when you shut down the Main zone. With respect to your Zone 2; the small remote that came with the receiver should have all the power and volume features you need to operate Zone 2 while keeping the Main zone turned off. The only audio that can be passed to Zone 2 though has to be in an analogue format (using the red and white RCA connections). This receiver does not pass digital audio onto Zone 2. Best of luck!
if the reciever shut down with zone 2 on, zone 2 volume at -3 and nothing connected to zone 2 it needs repair if not reconnect the speakers to zone 2 speaker connections and make sure you do not have more than 4 pair of speakers with impedence matching volume controls or a impedence matching speaker selector box
time to reset the microprocessor. See page 87 in manual.
1) switch off the unit using the main unit's power operation (small power button)
2) hold the PURE DIRECT button and DIRECT button at same time and turn the main unit's power operation on.
3) wait for entire display to flash in 1 second intervals
now the speakers need to be set up again but zone 2 will be working. i suspect a power surge causes the microprocesser to be corrupted. i put a power surge protector and have not had problems (lately).
i had the volume of the multi-zone tuned too high and was attenuating it in an external control box. Once i took the multi-zone volume down to -25db, the problem went way. My main zone was operating around -35db so did not have the problem.
I know this is old and im sure you have it solved by now, but it might be a good idea to check the amp setting of Zone 2. Is it switched to Internal or external? I remember something strange about this amp in that when you change from using the rear surrounds and go to use them in Zone 2, it resets the amp setting or something like that. Hope it helps if you still need it.
If you have zone 2 active with the level turned up too much it will cut out the whole unit. Try disconnecting zone 2 speakers, then turn the volume level way down on zone 2 and it should stay on if that is the problem.
