Need Help With My Onkyo HT-R510 Receiver keeps shutting down!! Help Me!!

I have the Onkyo HT-R510 with the Infinity Home Theater Speaker System (TSS 750). I hooked it up, all went well, but now the receiver keeps shutting off at random times. Sometimes it stays on throught a TV show or DVD, sometimes it shuts right off. There is no ryme or reason to it doing this. I checked the wiring, all looks good. Its like the receiver is sensing an overload or something and shutting down. ARGH!

Anybody ever have this issue? Any inout to fixing this is appreciated. I tried the Onkyo support team and they couldn't give me much on the issue except to do a reset of the factory settings and reset the digital input, I am going to try that when I get home.

Input is appreciated.

I can only think of 3 reasons it would shut off.

-short in your speaker wires
-damaged receiver, should be new enough for warranty work
-sitting on the remote (if this is it, we get to laugh at you )

For the speaker wires, it doesn't hurt to triple check them and make sure they are perfect. If you are using bare wire, make sure each one doesn't have any strands frayed out to the side, a single strand can short it out. And make sure you've removed just enough insulation to get wire into the connectors, usually 1/2 inch at the very most.

Thanks Spiky I appreciate the reply!!

I am going to check the wires again and see.

I was troubleshooting with it last night and it seemed that every time I turn it up loud (loud meaning normal volume) it worked for a bit then cut out again. Very weird.

Anyways I am off to check the wires, thanks again!

yeah, I had the same problem. It was my speaker wire that was frayed and I just cut it down a little and re-stripped it and it was all good.

Thanks dick_grayson I hope that is the problem. I hope I don't have amp issues after only 2 years of owning it.

Ok I checked the speaker wiring, and guess what, 2 little freaking strands from one of the speakers was touching the other speaker input, very touchy system, damn.

Anywho I went ahead and cut down the wires and re did them, and all works fine and sounds great.

Thanks again for all the input, what would I do without fellow DVD Talkers

That "very touchy system" protected your investment. If you run an amp with those wires touching, you will destroy it. All receivers and amps now have protection circuits to shut down if there is a short. Don't mess with electricity, perfection is required, even in the low voltage. Just imagine what happens if you have such an issue with high voltage. Most likely a fire, which is why there are circuit breakers in houses.
