Question about Onkyo Audio & Video Receivers

2 Answers

Have an onkyo TA-W202 dual cassette deck that I've moved many times. Just removed it from a stack so unplugged & moved. I've since plugged it back in and all the motors seem to work fine yet it no longer seems to "see" when playing - ie the little equalizer lights don't show and there's no sound. True for both decks, multiple tapes. Did something loosen?

PROBABLY THE CARBURETOR NEEDS ADJUSTING OR THE JOHNSON ROD IS OUT OF ALIGNMENT.. AND POSSIBLY THERE COULD BE A HOSMATIC DILDONIC ERROR THAT MAY BE THE PROBLEM.. AT ANY RATE I THINK WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS TO POUR VINEGAR SAUCE ON THE GRID AND CLAP YOUR HANS REALLY HARD 4 TIMES AND SHOUT "HALLEJUHAH"..

A friend who blind has purchase this item some time ago 2007 I believe. We have a number problems with it. 1/ There is a hum of 50 c/s from the deck (I assume from Mains Transformer) when switched on and...


initially it sounds like a ground hum Something is touching ground inside. have you had it open? Look at the out put SSR's and follow them to the out put jacks. can you replace the jacks if need be? have you tried different cables? Does it do it if you use another deck other than the Onkyo. If all looks good and you think the Onkyo is the issue you may have bad IC SSR(s). Do you have the Tech ability to replace the outputs {solid state relays}?
Let us know what conclusions you have come up with. Other wise the sad part is a $110 dollar repair bill or $189 new amp/deck.

I have an Onkyo TA 2090 that has the play button continuously flashing on and off. Usually the play button flashes for just a second and then becomes operational. Now when it powers up the play button...


Cassette decks do not have a reset button, the only way to do any type of a reset would be to let it sit unplugged overnight. I don't think this would help anything. The microprocessor in it is not the type that would require a reset but it won't hurt anything to try.

Since this is an older model (but very good one), it is very possible it may have some bad solder connections. It was intermittant at one point, having this problem but then playing. That is a sign of bad solder, but it is no guarantee. As solder get old and has a lot of wear from the unit being played it can degrade very slowly, causing an intermittant failure that eventually is constant. If you are good with a soldering iron you could try reflowing any solder connections that are not shiny and silver or have rings. The problem could be much deeper than that, but without having it in front of me to trouble shoot, it is really just a guessing game right now. There may be several different things that can cause it to do what you described. All of those things would require some good electronic troubleshooting skills to isolate.

Since this is a quality piece of equipment, it would be worth getting fixed. It would be difficult finding one this good at the price you would pay for a repair.

If I can be of any further help just let me know.

Kenwood KX-W6080 dual stereo cassette tape deck


I have the same unit which had the same problem. It has to do with dirty contacts on each tape mechanism.

Remove the main cover and look down on each tape mechanism. You will see 4 contacts on each unit. These come in contact with the tape. Remove each unit by removing 4 holding screws.

You will now be able to spray some contact cleaner into the front of the plastic contact cover. I removed the covers on both of the second from the right contacts so that I could clean them with an abrasive. These are the main ones.

Put everything back the way it was and the tape deck should work great.
