    I have an Onkyo receiver that is about 5 years old. The model # is 575 and it has been great until a few days ago. I turned it off Saturday night (it was working fine), the when I turned it on Sunday morning it turns on fine, but after about 2 seconds it turns itself off. Anyone have a clue what could cause this?

    If you still have the owner's manual, try the troubleshooting section. They may advise you to turn it off, unplug it for about 30 seconds, then plug it back in and turn it on. Try that to see if it works.

    May sound basic, but just double check that none of the left/right speaker cables or connectors are touching.

    Onkyo DR-S2.2 same problem of turning off

    I have an Onkyo DR-S2.2 that I purchased about 1 1/2 yrs. ago. I just unpacked it from being stored for approx. 6 months (due to building a house) and hooked it up. When I press the power/standby button the system turns on for 2-3 seconds then shuts down. The led light next the the power/standby button flashes once it shuts down (normally the led light will remain lit once the system is turned off in normal operation). I have unplugged all speaker wires, RCA's, and all other compenent wires and tired to turn the system back on to no avail. I have even unplugged the system, waited 30 seconds and plugged it back in without luck. If you have any suggestions they would be appreciated.

    Self protection circuit has been activated in both cases. It's because a shortcut; check all cables as Gene said before and check the power cord too. Send to service if you can't find anything. Don't open the rear panel because it's to dangerous.

    If all else fails, turn it off, unplug everything (except the A/C plug!) from the receiver and turn it back on. If it works, you've got a short in one of the cables or in what's connected by the cable. It should be pretty easy to figure out which one.

    I bought a new onkyo HTS 570, pluged in the speakers and the system does not stay on. From what I've read it seams that the amp protection may be activated. Does anyone know how I can DEACTIVATE the amp. protection?

    Amp Protection

    "Does anyone know how I can DEACTIVATE the amp. protection?"

    If you do manage to deactive your amp protection you will most likely fry your amp. The protection is there for a reason, you amp obviously has problems and needs repaired.

    A brandy new, out of the box unit doesn't work?

    This is a no brainer. Take it (or send it) back to the store NOW!

    If both amps had the same problem and you connected them to the same outlet (the old one that was working good and the new one that turned off) maybe it's something wrong with your electrical system and that's why the amp protection keeps turning the receivers off.

    Or, there could simply be a wiring problem to the speakers or AT the speakers. Start with simple solutions then rewire the house. :)

    try to read the manual where it says trouble shooting. because it says to reset receiver.

    Try to reset the receiver to factory setting.
