    I have rebooted and turned off the power per the manual but the display does not work and it won't appear on the TV screen either so I can't set up a new TV. Besides going to an Onkyo repair center do you have any suggestion?

    Weird - same thing here.  I bought it about 9 months ago at a Circuit City.  WIth them going out of business and me not having my receipt, I sure hope there is a fix.

    i had the same problem with mine. Got it at the repair shop. 4 to 6 weeks for a repair. Hope this doesnt happen again

    TX-SR805 No display. Went out after 1 year, 2 year warranty on product. Onkyo says to ship to repair center. Ugh, 50 lbs. shipping weight.

    My display also just went out on my SR805. Purchased 12/31/2007. That is not very good quality (less than 1.5 years). Even had a fan drawing out the hot air on top of the unit the whole time. Time to get the word out that this is a very common problem. Heck, I have a Sherwood receiver I bought back in the early 70's that still works like brand new. Now I have to deal with this.

Resetting the unit MAY work, however you will reset everything to factory and have to set it all up again. If resetting does not work, sounds like you will be looking for your local, friendly rrepair shop. Onkyo carries a two year warranty on these units, hopefully yours is still under. If not I would contact ONKYO directly because it seems they have had A LOT of problems with the screen on the 805 and 875 models

The receiver thinks there are headphones connected

Onkyo directed me to return the unit to a service center. Apparently this is a known issue and after reading web postings I believe it. There were dozens of similar cases with a variety of Onkyo recievers. I was able to remove the ribon connector from the headphones and discovered it is not a shorted headphone detector. We will see what the service center does. I'm not looking forward to paying for shipping a 66 lb receiver.

Onkyo 805 sub hook up problem

Talked to tech support at Onkyo and there seems to be two (2) places you can hook your sub up to. I placed mine in the wrong slot. So please double check where you placed the sub connection.
