Question about Onkyo TX-DS989 Receiver

1 Answer

Speakers I recently moved and re set up my HDTV and Onkyo sound system . I can not get the back speakers to work now. The back speakers only seemed to work when it was in the all speaker system mode anyway Why won't the back speaker work?? Can anybody suggest somthing. I think the remote control turned off somthing. Could it be in a mode that does not allow the back speakers sound. When I do a channel test all speakers have power and make a buzzing noise.

'Buzzing' is not a good thing; it implies that filtration of the DC used by the output section is not as it should be. Power supplies that are mildly overloaded can cause this or an abnormal current drain from one (or more) channels. 

The odd problem with the back speakers does sound like a setup problem rather than a circuit failure.

I have just set up my onkyo 5305 i only have sound to front speakers have checked connection but im lost now in the settings


Onkyo are known for having 2 seperate connections for the rear speakers. 1 set for a surround sound, channel "A", and 1 set for seperate set a speakers, channel "B". check for the second set of connections. Also, your only gonna get sound out of the rear speakers thru surround sound mode when the unit actually sends singal. The sound is determined buy what setting you have the receiver set to.

Surround Speakers will not work


Perhaps you have the live wire in the wrong connector from the speakers? They should be color coded. I would check that first. And if you have moved, they are most likely in different positions, you'll have to rerun the audio setup for the surround sound. You should have a separate microphone to use for that that plugs in to the system.

Rear surround speakers quit working from my Onkyo


It looks like the audio output was changed on the player so that it doesn't output 5.1. Enter the setup menu on the player and change DTS to output DTS instead of what be labled as stereo or L/R and Dolby Digital to output Dolby Digital instead of whatever else it is set to.

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.

Only one surround back speaker works


It sounds to me like one of your speakers may be mis-wired. Try reversing the speaker wire (don't switch right-for left, but switch negative for positive) and see if that changes anything.

Set-up problem with sound and speakers


I sent this TX-SR605 system to an authorized dealer for repair. It seems like it is a very simply problem - the internal set-up mic jacket closed circuit, so the system think the set-up mic is always plugged in (even when physically unplugged it, the system still detect plugged in). And it enters the automatic speaker setup and never quit.

Now I have the receiver back home and tested it. Everything worked O.K. now. It is a pity that this new-bought equipment (just one month) need repair for just a small action of plug in a mic ( I swear I plugged it in very tenderly). It is shame for such a unreliable performance happened on brand name like ONKYO. How can you be confident for an equipment failure in one month.
