Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver
My Onkyo tx-sr606 7.1 channels receiver keeps on turning off by itself. I followed the troubleshooting guide by ''booting'' and it stills turn off by itself, it just would not ''stay on''. The manual says to contact the technical representative. I am afraid that I have a ''bad'' receiver. I just bought it about 6 months ago. Please help...
Hi, when the unit shuts off by itself, it means that the protection circuity inside has been activated. it can be a problem with the receiver itself or it is just detecting something hooked up to it that can cause possible damage so it shuts off.
you would need to disconnect everything from the back and by itself, try to turn it on, see if it will stay on and then crank the volume way up to max. if it stays on, the receiver is ok and you then need to rehook your devices one by one starting with the speakers until you determine the one causing the receiver to shut off.
however, if the receiver shuts off and won't turn on even by itself, it means that the problem is internal and it either has to go back to your dealer for an exchange or it has to be sent to a repair center for servicing.
hope this helps a bit.. ^_^

I had this problem, and it was one of the speakers. I disconnected the right rear speaker and now it works fine. I asked a guy at Visions how to solve it so I can hook my speaker back up and he said that banana plugs prevent wires from crossing and sending a backwards signal (causing the receiver to turn itself off). Hope that helps!

As well as the excellent advice given - instead of unplugging stuff - you could run the set up mic with the 606 and it will "sense" if any speakers are not properly connected.

Maybe by mistake you burn the audio amplifier IC
