Question about Onkyo TX-DS656 Receiver
I have a TX-DS656 ... but it is of no value to me ... coz it keeps turning itself down every time I turn it on - I think I need to "reset" it ... but I don't know how ... can somebody please help me?
May not help, but I had the same thing when I turned up the volume.. off it went.. then I found my two surround sound speakers had the wires shorting. Looks like a safety switch if there is a problem. Could check if the wires are crossed, shorted, and/or thick enouch to handle the volume.. test it by just having the stereo speakers enabled. Cheers,

hi, when the unit shuts off by itself, it means that the protection circuity inside has been activated. it can be a problem with the receiver itself or it is just detecting something hooked up to it that can cause possible damage so it shuts off.
you would need to disconnect everything from the back and by itself, try to turn it on, see if it will stay on and then crank the volume way up to max. if it stays on, the receiver is ok and you then need to rehook your devices one by one starting with the speakers until you determine the one causing the receiver to shut off.
however, if the receiver shuts off and won't turn on even by itself, it means that the problem is internal and it either has to go back to your dealer for an exchange or it has to be sent to a repair center for servicing.
hope this helps a bit.. ^_^

Mine goes out sometimes, if I go to the reciever and hit the "Display" butoon, the display lights up dim, at same time, I hit the " Dimmer" botton on remote and display works for about 1-2 weeks. Don't know what is cuasing it, but that got the dispaly to work. Can deal with that I guess.
