Question about Onkyo TX-SR600 Receiver

2 Answers

Volume decrease Hi, I own a receiver Onkyo Tx-SR600E, bouth in 2003. I use it just on weekends, and just ocassionally at more that 50-60 volum (maximum volume 100). The problem is that, now the volume has decreased without explication, I mean, now I must turn to volume 55 to hear what normally was heard at 35. And I must turn into 75 was before was heard at 55. I have inserted my cans, just to comprobe if the problem could be in the loudspeakers, or in the wires that connect with them, but the cans are heard the same low. I have tried differents channels, dvd, radio, etc, and they all works the same bad. I have had a look into the instructions manual, but, of course, no solution. Before I take it to the technical service, it would be very kind of you if anyone could give an idea of what could have happened. Thanks everybody in advance. Antonio Lopez (Spain), 10/Sep/2006

Re: Volume decrease

I own the same receiver for three yeras now. During that time it happened four times that it lost all pre-settings such as speakers volume settings and intelli volume. I have no idea why this happened, but it did. If this happens it feels like your amplifier suddenly lost half of it's power. Restore these settings and you'll have your "old" power back.

Hope this helps,

Re: Volume decrease

May be some one modified the set up. You can configure different level for different speakers.

My Amplifier is in good working condition, except for the volume control has gone weird Using the remote, you can increase volume, but not decrease volume. On the unit, rotating the volume control...

Cleaning the contacts may help. The volume knob should pull off. Once its off use a non-flammable contact cleaning spray to clean the contacts behind the knob.

Electronics and automotive stores should have this.

My onkyo tx-ds838 motor fan do not move

The fan in those Audio System only turns at about 1/4 to 1/3 of the ride of your volume control.
It had been intentionnaly designed like that, to achive a quiet operation at low hearing volume.
But if the fan don't move by cranking up the volume at 1/2 to 5/8 of the volume control (with speakers on). You need to have the fan or the fan power circuit checked by technician.

"The blue light around my volume dial does not light

Try resetting the receiver (you will lose your setup). I recently reset my receiver and the blue light returned. It's possible that the Audacity setup turns off the blue light because the volume is now being "regulated" by the equalizer.

Onkyo tx 906 amp

1) I bought the same Onkyo model from goodwill a couple years ago and it had the same problem. The solution is simple: Get yourself some Deoxit D5. This is a spray that will clean out all the oxidation in the volume pot. To do this you'll need to remove the cover of the receiver. Deoxit can be bought at guitar shops, or if you know a musician they might be willing to do it for you.

2) User manual is available for download, for free. Google "Onkyo tx-906 receiver manual".

Volume on my Onkyo Receiver

Yes it is. I have the 705. My room mate has the 605. Both AVR's will not have appreciable volume until 50 on the dial.
The dial in not linear. I don't know of anyone who has plotted the scaling of the volume control yet.
I have found much useful user info on Owners post Q&A based on experiences.
Search the forum for "official onkyo TX-SR605" thread.
Some comparable info may also be found under the "official onkyo TX-SR705".

Volume is changing/decreasing

well, that information is slightly undescriptive and unnecessarily vague, but I think I can suggest a few things.

If the problem only occurs when watching your HDTV, I am assuming you are using the Audio Out on your TV to pipe sound down to your Onkyo receiver. If this is the case, the TV volume may be turned down lower by mistake and you have to turn up the Onkyo's volume to correct for the difference.

Another possibility is that some other variable has changed i.e. source material, programming, TV firmware update. What did you change to get this to happen? Is it reproducible? Can you use other source material (DVD, VCR, or DAP (mp3 player) and use it at the same volume levels as before? I tend to think that your problem is with the HDTV, not the Onkyo. User error is the most common type.

Default volume too high

You can download the manual from the link below: c. Power On Volume This sets a designated volume setting for the TX-DS787 to be set every time that the power is turned on. This prevents the TXDS787 from being turned on while it is set to an extremely high volume and suddenly output very loud sounds. For the absolute volume display method, this can be set between min and max. For the relative volume display method, this can be set between ?? and 18 decibels. If you do not mind having the TX-DS787 turned on with its current volume setting, set this to "Last." Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
