Hi,


Hoping for a bit of help as I'm a newb and not sure if I have a defective receiver or I just have my gear setup incorrectly. Thank you in advance.


My setup is an Onkyo TX-SRS606 with a 5.1 Energy setup that has 4 C-50 and an S8.3 8-inch Hybrid Subwoofer.


Problem: Seemed to work absolutely fine until recently, now the receiver seems to randomly shut-off... For example, tonight I turned on some music (heavy bass) and it shut off within 5 seconds... it was not on loud, just medium (40 of 80). Additionally, I was just watching Minority Report on 40/80 and it worked fine until an action sequence and it just cut off.


Not sure if I have some settings wrong, my receiver is trying to protect my gear or if my receiver is just bunk.


Thank you again for any advice

Check all of your speaker connections and make sure you don't have a short. If everything looks good, you can disconnect 1 speaker at a time and try to replicate the problem. You may find a speaker cable short is causing the problem. If not then maybe it's a receiver issue.

quick followup before I check on the short.


When I play my music, it is only through the front 3.1. When I play the movies, it is the entire 5.1... since it shuts off using only 3.1, does it mean I only need to check out the front speakers?


Thanks.

If that's the case then first step I would just disconnect the rear speakers. Then make sure the problem still occurs. That 100% rules them out. Then go with testing the rest.


What center speaker are you using? I see you only listed 4 c-50's. Also why 3.1 for music. 2.1 should sound better.

Using the Energy C-C50 for the center channel.


Perhaps the music is 2.1- newb :)



Update: I noticed the right rear was static-y... unplugged both rears though... testing music now. No problem, but it's an intermittent problem I can't reproduce at will, so might be a while.


Update2: In the hopes it might help, I changed the Front Speakers setting from Full Band to 60hz. Not sure if this done anything.

Quick update: Woke up this morning and turned on the receiver to listen to some music, it shut off within 10 seconds at 30/80 volume (low-medium). I'll investigate some more when I get home from work.

After much testing, it appears to 'work' when only 1 speaker is plugged in. Doesn't seem to matter which one. The moment I add in 1 other speaker, it shuts down.


Busted receiver?


Thoughts?

Seems like you have tested everything. I guess it's looking like an AVR issue. There is a way to do a factory reset, but I'm not sure how. You could try that. You can probably find that info in the receiver forum section. I think there is a large thread dedicated to your specific AVR.
