DVD/TV Problem with TX-LR552

A few nights ago I stuck a DVD in my Onkyo DV-CP702. My TX-LR552 was on the DVD setting. The dvd had no sound, no matter what I did. FM had sound on FM setting, TV had sound on TV setting, etc. When I turned the receiver to the TV setting my DVD had sound. If I fast forwarded the dvd, the receiver would automatically switch to the DVD setting, but again, there was no sound. Any ideas? Thanks, Norm

sounds like a reception problem. Is there a visual meter for the reception? Check your antenna.

if what Dark_Orbit said does not work try doing a master reset by ressing and holding the dvr/vcr button and stand by button simultaneously. This would erase all your assignments so you would need to reassign all your sources hooked up to your onkyo.

SOURCE: Onkyo TX-LR552 was working great until I hooked up

Could be a couple things.
1. The system has a safety feature that cuts out when to much voltage runs through input/outputs
2. The audio ouputs have fried and will need all new capacitors installed.

SOURCE: Does The Onkyo TX-8210 take a slow blow or fast

slow blow (aka time delay) fuses are used in motor circuits. Electronic devices use normal or fast blow fuses

The most common problem found on FixYa for Audio Video2_bing.gif Receiver's is:

My receiver say's "Protect" or turns on then off. What's wrong? Seven times out of ten it is a shorted speaker or speaker wire2_bing.gif. To determine your exact problem, the first step is to disconnect all speaker wires "at your receiver" Next: Turn the receiver back on. If your receiver still says "protect" or turns off, it needs to be serviced. If your receiver stays on; reconnect your speakers one at a time and power back up after each speaker. You may find that after reconnecting all speaker wires it works! Most commonly the small braids of wire from the + to the - have touched and have caused the problem. In some instances, you noticed the problem only when turning the volume up. either way, make sure the exposed wires to your receiver are no longer than 1/2" long and are completely under the screw down terminal or slide in. When you've found the wire or speaker with the problem, your receiver will go back into "protect" At this point, disconnect the wire from the speaker at the speaker that may be causing the problem then test again.* Note* Make sure speaker wires do Not touch each other as this Will cause a short! If you turn the receiver back on and it stays on, you now know the problem is in your speaker itself. To test your speaker, you will need a multimeter. Set it to ohms resistance and touch the speaker terminals, if there is a short internally the meter will read "1......" If it's an analog meter, it will peg to the right. There's your problem. Now, within any speaker there are quite a few possibilities as to what could be causing the problem. Most common is a blown coil and the speaker needs to be replaced. Some speakers have internal crossovers (usually floor standing speakers2_bing.gif) and may have a shorted or burnt board (usually very visible brown burn marks on the board) and can possibly be repaired if your handy with a soldering iron. Now, if you disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and it still says "protect" Check your wire for the obvious cut or nail thru the wire if possible. If your system has wiring that runs behind walls, you may need to use your meter again. Disconnect the wire at both ends, keep the ends separated, put your meter on ohms resistance and touch probes to the + and - wires at one side. If the meter pegs to the right or reads "1...." the wire is shorted and needs to be replaced or repaired at the short. Hope this helps.

I have the onkyo tx sr502, onkyo dv sp402e with the speakers..etc.. i'm trying to set up the whole thing to a normal television. that is, what cables go from what components, out/inputs..etc..and which...

Hi troy my names Josh i would be glad to be able to help you with your setup. First things first some people have a preference with they way they like things and for one do myself. I set up and intstalled my home theatre. I have receiver much like yours. On the back of your reciever you should have multiple inputs of coarse some for sound some for video. Your sound inputs would include digital optical, digital coax, standard analog which of coarse is the red and white RCA inputs and then a multi in which i doubt you have. So lets start simple If you have satalite or some form of cable i would assume you have your reciever box feeding a signal to your tv and the same for your DVD. I would recommend for your sat. that you connect your picture and sound strait to the tv rather it be component video or s video or standard video source or connect then for your sound strait analog to your tv thats just Red and White RCAs which will give you your sound to your tv. Repeat the same for your DVD depending on the kind of inputs and number of inputs you have on your TV. Now for the sound to your reciever. I ran digital sound from both my DVD and my Satilite to the reciever which means on the back of your recievers providing you have a similar configuration you would look for a plug on your dvd player that says optical thats your digital to run sound to your onkyo and the same for your sat or cable if you have a box look for either digital optical or a single digtal coax output that will also be ran to the onkyo for sound. You should only have two cables running to the onkyo one fiber optic from your dvd to the onkyo and one digital coax or fiber optic to your onkyo depending on the number of those inputs you have on the back of the onkyo you can run it how ever you want.

I hooked up our Onkyo TX-SR607 system a few weeks ago and have watched several movies, but now I cannot get the Hitahci PH35811 TV to sync up to get video. I get audio, but no picture when we try to watch...

Are you routing the video into your reciver from the dvd player? If so route the video directly into your tv. It won't fix the initial problem but you will get picture and sound to watch dvd movies.

Onkyo TX-LR552 was working great until I hooked up the tv to act as a set of speakers. It cut off and now won't cut back on. We've unplugged it for a day and still nothing....

Could be a couple things.
1. The system has a safety feature that cuts out when to much voltage runs through input/outputs
2. The audio ouputs have fried and will need all new capacitors installed.

No sound

Go to the OSD setup and for the dvd mode you need to select the appropriate optical output. ie you need to select coaxial for the dvd to the onkyo, by default it is optical.

No HDMI Output

My configuration:
ZONE 1 (living room)
DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 1 [S-Video out] -> [S-Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [HDMI out] -> [HDMI in] Sony KDS-60A3000 rear projection TV

ZONE 2 (living room)
DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 2 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] Samsung AQUOS LCD TV

ONKYO receiver stops sending video signal to my ZONE 1 Sony TV through the HDMI connection. ZONE 2 may still receive video. (NOTE: the issue might be related to the upconverter circuitry?)

I couldn't see any video, but I could hear the Tuner 1 audio through my ONKYO. An important clue is that I couldn't see ONKYO's on-screen display menu on my TV when hitting the [Setup] button on my remote. But, I could see my TV's Sony-based menus and display options.

1. Put all ZONES in Standby mode using the remote. Hit these buttons on remote: [Receiver], then [Standby]. [Receiver], [ZONE2], then [Standby], [Receiver], [ZONE3], then [Standby]. You should NOT see any lights on the ONKYO except maybe one red led near the power button.
2. Pull the power plug out of the back of the ONKYO, and leave unplugged for 20-30 seconds. Turning off any power center it is connected to isn't enough. You MUST unplug the power from the back of the ONKYO for 20-30 seconds.
3. Reconnect the power cord to the ONKYO.
4. Using the remote, set ZONE1 to a video source known to be working. If you don't see video, try leaving the power cord off for a longer period.

I know it sounds too simple to work, but that's what brought the video back for me the few times the video stopped displaying. Hope it works for you.

New home theater setup- no signal at tv using onkyo tx=sr605

Could well be the quality of your cables. if you have high end cables the consult a service agent. if you have the cables that came with the products, go and get some better ones.

No audio

Most of the time its the amps that are bad and need changing. This will be transistors on heatsink in the reciever. Part number should be on the amp.
