The unit is in protect mode. A problem was detected in the final stage of the amp and the unit shuts down to prevent further damage to either the amp or speakers. Check the speaker wires to be sure that they are not crossed anywhere. If with the sepaker wires disconnected, the amp still enters protect mode, the problem is internal to the amp. This is usually defective output transistors. Expect a parts cost between $15-$40.

My Onkyo TX-SR506 plays cable and CD inputs to zone 2, but DVD won't play. Everything is connected according to the manual and I assigned zone 2 output correctly. What gives?


How are your cable and cd inputs hooked up? Analog connections? Alot of receivers cannot send an audio signal from hdmi inputs to zone 2.

PCM is what it's receiving from the DVD player. The player has output bitstream settings, too, maybe even speaker configurations and distances. Read its manual.

I have Onkyo TX-SR304E receiver, it plays find on low volume, however when it is on 40 or above after some time the unit shuts off? How can I fix this problem? Regan


Check the impedance of your speakers. It sounds like the amp is getting overloaded and shutting down either for over current or over heating.
Most common issue is a partially blown speaker or crossover.
Sometimes it's just a rogue strand of wire, and reconnecting everything fixes it.
But measure the impedance on all the speakers anyways!

Onkyo605 stopped outputting Video after installing HDAV1.3 sound


If you didnt change any of the inputs going to the onkyo. I would check the input setup. I dont know what input you have your pc connected to on the onkyo, i'm guessing that your using a hdmi cable. make sure you have hdmi selected as your input type not component video or any other. That model doesnt upconvert anything to hdmi. Also some dvi-d to hdmi dont play well wih onkyo.

Picture sound blackout (blink) when cable box/receiver HDMI used


Onkyo service told me, the second timethat I called them, that there is a known HDMI handshake issue with Motorola and Atlanta Scientific cable boxes. The only solution, and it was a solution, is to connect the box through the HDMI 1 port ONLY. All the other (2,3,4) result in blinking/dropping of signal. I did this, changed the cable/satelilte setting to HDMI 1 and all is well.

I have "Onkyo TX-SR304E" and PS3. Will this rcvr support PS3 in all means? Is there any special setting hat I ned to follow to get the best from my rcvr as well as PS3? Pls advise. Your help much...


what u can utilize on your tx-sr304 is the optical input at the back of the receiver. connect an optical cable from your PS3 into the receiver then follow these steps:
*make sure that the digital input on the front panel of your receiver matches where you placed the optical at the back of the tx-sr304 (either OPT1 or OPT2)
*all you have to do is keep pressing the digital input at the front panel until it goes to OPT1 or OPT2 (preferrably stay on DVD mode)
AFTER completing this go to your PS3 settings:
go to settings / then go to sound settings / then audio output settings / then set it to DIGITAL OUT (optical)/ then play and enjoy.....ü
