Question about Onkyo HTR500 Receiver
I have two of these receivers and I still really like them. Unfortunately, one of them won't turn on. I have disassembled the receiver and tested all fuses. They were all good. The two little orange lights on the front panel of the receiver both light up but when I push the standby button, absolutely nothing happens. I have tried using the remote to engage the receiver to no avail.
It seems there are many different ways on the internet to "reset" a receiver- but none for the TX-SV515pro. Does anyone know if there is a way to "reset" my receiver? Perhaps the standby button is shot? Is there some way to test this?
I most likely won't bring this to a repair shop as reputable shops are impossible to find in my area.
Doubt that reset will fix your problem---but here it is if you want to try:
hold down the cd button and press the power button [at the same time]
test will [should] appear on screen for about 5 seconds--you need to unplug the set during this 5 second period. this resets the cpu chip.
hope it helps solve your problem.

I had the same problem with my Onkyo TX-SV515PRO. In trouble shooting I found that R921 resistor was open. This is a .47 ohm resistor. I replaced it and the problem was solved. The unit is now working as good as new.

Solution 1 worked for me, although no "TEST" appeared and I didn't have to unplug it. I had the same problem as "same problem".
