Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

I have an Onkyo HT-R550 receiver, and last night i cranked it up loud.... Real loud. It went into protection mode, which with most receivers is as simple as turning off, then on with lower volume. Not the case with this one. It comes on, but once speakers "A" are activated, it turns off again.

SOURCE: overload

No, one of your speakers is damaged (could be an amp channel went bad, but speaker is more likely). Unplug all spkrs, then plug one in and see if it acts normal when turned up. Repeat this until all speakers are hooked up or the culprit spkr is found.

I would not suggest hooking up powered speakers to your receiver. Only if unit has sub woofer output can you hook up powered speaker

SOURCE: 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 avsforum.com. 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".

1-disconnect subwoofer first and test-and then disconnect surround speakers-and front speaker after-and later center speaker.ever time you disconnect you check the operation until you find the bad one(or two)which make the problem change its cable first and then change speaker itself.if all above failed contact the service center.

Onkyo HT-R2295 receiver turns on then off


Is it going in to protect mode?

Check your speaker wires for shorts.

Onkyo ht-r500 no speakers attached goes directly into protect mode, standby light blinking..


I have a HT-R520 - First thing stated in the manual is 'Do Not Apply Power to the System Until All the Speakers Are Connected to the Receiver.' This practice avoids any hot connects to the speakers. As with any high-outpiut system connecting spreaker wires to the system while in operation can spike the speakers as well as the amplifier curcuits. Hook up your speakers first and give it a try. Good Luck!

No sound with ps3, connected to a 7.1 av receiver & projection tv


Hi...the HT-R800 Home Theater system has the HT-R550 receiver which could only carry Video via HDMI. you would need to connect a separate audio cale(Optical Audio Cable) to be able to get audio out of the PS3 to the receiver. Once you have hooked up an Optical Audio Cable you would need to go in the PS3 setup and putin Bitstream and Optical in the Audio Setup menu.

My Onkyo Receiver TX 601 is turning itself off


Several things can cause this: Loud signal passages can momentarily draw high currents at the mains, especially if you have unit plugged into power stripe with other equipment. Or if unit is plugged into isolation transformer, current draw may exceed output of transformer. Too many speakers hooked to output or if one is bad (partially shorted due to overheating)

Amp Protection Mode


no, your output transistors maybe 2 of them are gone or the small power supply that feeds the other circuitry has become defective.
