Hey all just got one of these receivers to go with my new Panny 3D tv that's on the way and found a problem while using it with my current setup. I'm running it with an older Panny plasma, a Sony PS3, and a motarola dcx 3400 pvr. Last night while I was trying to watch my first bluray with it the receiver kept shutting down after about 10mins or so. It would work fine when running cable tv, or even playing an ipod with it. I tried playing a regular dvd and even playing some MW3 but had the same results......i'm stumped.

carefully check all of your speaker wire connections...

i'll do that but why would something like that effect one activity and not any of the others?

When the AVR shuts down suddenly, as Chris suggests, the first thing you want to rule out is a loose speaker wire touching another post. In the case of using the PS3, you likely listen to the volume much louder than when watching cable TV or listening to your iPod. A speaker short is more likely to shut down the AVR at higher volume levels.

First off thx a lot for the suggestions I really appreciate it....I checked all the speaker connections in the back and there was nothing really suspect except one exposed wire leaning on another, but on the rubber not bare wire to bare wire. Not sure if that would cause any problems. I did do a firmware update before I checked the wires and it seemed to fix the problem. I ran the movie for about 20-30mins without any shutdowns, and was playing sirius through the receiver via the network connections. I was doing this at similar volumes for at least a half hour with no problems. I'm now going to try some gaming and see what happens......will post my results.

Not sure how a wire can be "leaning" on another without it "touching" the other wire, otherwise, yes, that could cause the issue.

it wasn't touching wire to wire.....it was wire to rubber.

Hi nucl3arboNg, also check speaker wire run and connections at the speakers itself.

I think I found the problem.....I noticed down the rubber was torn on my surround right wire so the positive/negitive were touching. Fixed it and gonna try again.......

Hi, i am facing a similar issue with my VSX 112k ...the AVR automatically shuts down.. i did check for the wires and i don't see that as a problem. I am using banana plugs to connect to the AVR...any idea?
