Question about Onkyo TX-DS555 Receiver

Open Question

No Power The standby light is on, but receiver doesn't power up -- either by switch on front or by remote. There is no display & no operational mode is functioning. A blown fuse has been suggested, but I see no access panel for a fuse. I've checked the surge protector the receiver is plugged into & see no problem there.

The most likely problem is shorted output transistors. This is a straightfoward repair for any shop that works on audio gear. Expect a parts cost in the $40-$50 range.

SOURCE: Only the front speakers work none of the surround speakers

If you are still covered by the warrenty, then you may be able to get it fixed at no cost.

Otherwise get a qualified technician (I say this to cover my but rather than suggesting that you open it up yourself) to open it up and check the fuses inside.

SOURCE: Hello, My receiver wont come out of

If you push the power button and you hear it "click" that means it's getting power. Now, that being said... Couple things to check: first: disconnect all speaker wires at the receiver and attempt to power up, if it does, that's a good sign that your receiver is ok and your problem lies in the speakers or in the speaker wire. If you still can't get it to power up, pop the top of the unit. Most receiver's have 6 or 7 #1 phillips head screws on the sides and rear of the receiver. Pull these off. Look directly at the area where the power cord plugs into the unit (make sure the unit is unpluggged) There is usually a fuse right nearby. If it's a white fuse or gray fuse you may need to do a quick continuity check with a meter to test. If your familliar with meter's, just switch it to continuity/tone. If the fuse is good, you will hear a tone from the meter. If not, there's your problem. If your not sure how to test with a meter, either take it to Radio Shack or similar store, ACE hardware etc. they can test it for you and will generally have replacements in stock. If the fuse is good, your speakers are disconnected and you still have no turn on, your receiver needs to be serviced. If that's the case, whether you service or replace the receiver, get a good "Theater" line conditioning surge!!! like Panamax, Monster, APC, or Furman. A good unit will start around 250. Small price to pay for saving expensive electronics! Hope this helps. If you need further help, just post a comment and I will be glad to help.

Denon AVR-3200 wont go into standby mode

Not sure what you mean by standby mode. The power button on most of the audio remotes I deal with merely turns the equipment on and off.

Receiver stays on stand by

Turning On and Standby
On the AV receiver, press the [ON/STANDBY] button.
On the remote controller, press the [RECEIVER] button, followed by the
[ON/STANDBY] button.
The AV receiver comes on, the display lights up, and the STANDBY indicator goes off.
To turn the AV receiver off, press the [ON/STANDBY] button, or press the remote
controller's [ON/STANDBY] button. The AV receiver will enter Standby mode.

If you have any trouble using the receiver, a simple reset could solve your problem.Note that resetting the AV receiver will delete your radio presets and custom settings.
To reset the AV receiver to its factory defaults, turn it on and, while holding down the [VCR/DVR] button, press the [ON/STANDBY] button. "Clear" will appear on the display and the AV receiver will enter Standby mode.

Hope you are satisfied with my solution.Your valuable feedback would be appreciated.Thanks for choosing Fixya.

How to reset the recever?

Place the receiver in Standby mode (press the front-panel Standby/On Switch so that the Power Indicator turns orange).
Then press and hold the front-panel OK Button on the Receiver ( not remote ) for at least five seconds until the RESET message appears in the display. Then press OK. The system will go to factory default. All your settings will be lost like FM stations / Sound settings etc: .

Seems to be some sort of power problem since the READY light is no longer on, and therefore the remote control cannot turn the receiver on, nor can pressing the power on button turn it on.

If there is no standby light. Open the top cover and check the fuse on the primary power side. MAKE SURE THE POWER CORD IS UNPLUGGED.There are two transformers in this model. A small one for standby and a large one for the main section.A relay clicks when you touch the power button and switches on the large transformer and the display comes on. If there is any problem in the output stage the the relay will click and the system will go into standby again.

Denon DRA-37 Receiver-Remote lock on. Need to unlock.

Refer to the "Initialization of the Microprocessor" section of the manual (page 16 of the PDF version of the manual).
1) Turn the unit OFF using the On/Off switch (not the standby switch).
2) Depress both the Speaker A and B switches, and turn the Power ON.
3) The entire display should flash at 1-second intervals. The microprocessor should be reset, and the remote should be unlocked.

Is the red light flashing at first?
The unit may be going into protect mode. Lets hope it has done the job and the receiver has protected itself from failure.
Protect mode can result from speaker wires touching each other or the Amps2_bing.gif metal case. Check that first.
It can also be caused by unstable ohm loads if too many speakers2_bing.gif are connected to any of the outputs especially zone 2.
If you can remove all speaker wires and turn the unit back on. If it stays on, turn the volume down on the main zone and zone 2 if connected. Then reconnect speaker wires.

r this one: Switc off your receiver using the main power button on the front face. Hold the the Effect button and the Direct button, and turn the main power ON.f it ain't working, try this one: Turn your receiver ON and, while holding down the [VCR1] button, press the [STANDBY/ON] button. "Clear" might appears on the display and your receiver might enter Standby mode.
Hope it does.. With your receiver in the Standby mode, hold on STRAIGHT (EFFECT) on the front panel and press STANDBY/ON.
* The ADVANCED sETUP menu appears in the front panel display.ress STRAIGHT (EFFECT) to select the desired setting.
RESET = To reset your receiver to its factory presets.
CANCEL = To cancel without making any changes Press STANDBY/ON to confirm your selection.
* If you selected "RESET", your receiver is reset to its factory presets and switches to Standby mode good luck

If the display processor has failed, you are out of luck, but sometimes it is just the backlighting (bulb or LED) for the LCD display or if if nothing in that circuit has voltage, then you can usually track down the power regulator for it and fit that.
Hope Ya Fix It!

No display on my sr875 the next time i turned it on..i have no clue waht was just working fine yesterday,now, it suddenly shows one issue that needs to be resolve..i did everything i cud do but...

The 10 Ohms resistor R9304 in series with the the 44V display power supply was open.

How to find it:
Remove the to cover.
On the right hand side of the front panel you will see on the side a wide white flat cable going toward the back of the receiver.
Beside it is a 4 black wire band connecting the front panel to a 3x4cm power PCB which is parallel with the front panel inside the receiver (attached to the front frame).
It has visible on the left side a diode bridge and a fuse - above the fuse you can find the R9304, a SFR16 package (1x3.5mm) marked BrownBlackBlack.
Check continuity.Replace if open wit a 1W resistor
Good job ONKYO, save 1/3 of a penny...

For the DIY:
As an added step I replaced the R9304 with a 2W 47R resistor, replaced the series transistor regulator Q9301 (tall TO92) with a bigger package (isolated TO220) and one of the two series 22V zenners from the base - D9310 - with a 10V one.
Output voltage drops from 44V to 34V, display is slightly dimmer but overall stress is down.

Good luck!
