    It's NOT the "rear" speakers, but the left/right surround sound. Thank you for your comments.

    Sound is supplied from the TV to receiver via optical cable. This has worked in the past but recently quit working. 3.1 setup. Center channel is the only speaker that won't put out sound. Center channel speaker works with radio output so I know the speaker and cables are working. Center channel only won't work with sound coming from the TV??

So your saying that you have no rear channel. Some recivers use a single stereo output ic for both sides on the rear speakers. you could have a defect with this IC . Anther thing Im sure you check3ed the obvious ie : the switch is on suround sound? If there is a front to rear fader is it in the middle? Good Luck

Onkyo sr600 memory problem


I had the same problem with my TX-SR601 receiver.
Solution: I changed the capacitor C766 (100uF/6,3V) on the "DSP and main microprocessor" or "U1" board. This capacitor is responsible to keep the settings in the memory. It is directly next to the SRAM ICs (Q705-706) (type: CY7C1019BV/CV33-15VCT).
Now the receiver works properly again.

Message states the power to zone 2 is not activated when trying to listen to zone 2 speakers. Nothing in my manual about this message. How do I activate power to zone 2 on a tx-sr601


Page 77:

"Not available in Zone 2 mode" Setting not allowed because the Zone 2 mode is turned on.

"Zone 2 is not On" Will not work because the Zone 2 has not been turned on.

TURN ZONE 2 ON.

This site said it was free - then there is a charge? I am getting a "Protecting" message when I turn on my receiver - then it shuts off....What does this mean and what should I do?


It means the receiver senses excessive heat, or a short at its outputs. Disconnect the speaker wires and see if that helps. If not, get it to a Tech. If it turns on, figure out which speaker path(s) was causing the problem and resolve it.

The manual.

Power shuts off immediately after power on.

• Amplifier protection circuitry is activated. Remove the power cord from the outlet immediately. Contact your Onkyo service center.

My ONKYO TX-SR601 receive will not let me play my zone 2 speakers. I get a message saying '' Powered Zone 2 is not activated. How do I activate Zone 2? Thanks. Tom


Have just got a 607 myself, but it may apply to your model too.
Press the RECEIVER button followed by SETUP. On the TV screen a menu should appear and select SPEAKER SETUP then SPEAKER SETTINGS and set the powered Zone speakers to ACT.
SETUP will then return you to normal. Note: some other surround speakers will be switched off when ACT is on and ACT won't come on if Bi-amp is used.

Hi there. If you are running a 5.1 speaker system, make sure your surround speakers are on the surround terminal NOT ON THE SURROUND BACK. the surround back is only for the 7.1 speaker system.
