Question about Onkyo TX-SR503 Receiver

1 Answer

Shutting down I just bought this receiver today and I set up my Infinity tss-750 speaker set and connected it to my dvd player, and when i plugged it in and turned it on it clicked on and then immediately clicked off. It was as if there was a power overload, but it was the first time I have ever turned it on. I then umplugged the power cord, and all the speakers and replugged it in, and it still did the same thing. I would like to get it working asap.. Thanks

Re: Shutting down

Try first to disconnect all your speakers and see if the sdame thing happens. if it dosent, turn off and start to connect up one speaker at a time. BUT always turn off unit while connecting speakers. Keep connecting till you get to the one that makes the system shut down. Then check the wires for splices cuts or shorts and make sure the ends where they connect to the speaker and reciver isent shorted. if it doesnt work with all the speakers disconnected theres a short in the unit and if its new take it back. Good Luck

I just bought an Onkyo tx-s804 receiver. and some new rear surrounds. Since I am moving, have not set up anything formally, but have plugged my dvd player into the front video 4 input via an optical...

PCM is what it's receiving from the DVD player. The player has output bitstream settings, too, maybe even speaker configurations and distances. Read its manual.

Add more speaker to dvd player/s-air suround sond system

I have revisted this question and I *think* you are talking about a "speaker selector". A speaker selector is a unit that prevents an amp or receiver from going into safe mode or shutting down.

Connecting DVD player to AV receiver

If you've done that already and still no response from your system, I would suggest to take back to the place where you bought it and ask them to check it for you. Tell them that you follow the user's manual to the "T" but still unable to make it work.
Good Luck.

Normally the optical inputs are disabled unless specifically turned on. I dono't know your specific model. I'll research the model and update this with more specifics.

Your drawing to many watts from the unit and its shutting down. Make sure the -/+ are set properly for the speakers. Also the power amp inside the unit could be bad and the relay trips off. Plug straight into the wall and don't go through a powerstrip. Is anything else connected to the receiver?
