Wireless speakers will usually hook to speaker outputs as well as headphone jacks. hook the wireless speakers up to speakers "b".

Sorry,Buy a better receiver.  The main outputs are cut off by the headphone jack at the pre-amp stage of this amp.  So when the headphone jack is bridged or engaged the signal is sent to the headphone amp and does not pass on to the main power amp. In an effort to simplify and save money on expensive distributive op-amps and knobs, the designer of your amp only installed one volume control and one set of op-amps on this receiver.  If both outputs were meant to work independently there would be a separate volume control for the headphone jack.  This feature is designed to allow a user to work in the room silently with only headphones on.   It is found on consumer equipment.  Stepping up to a "pro-sumer" or  professional or DJ amp will allow the use of all outputs simultaneously.     A rule of thumb with most electronics is often "You get what you pay for." Meaning: Less expensive, consumer models will almost always have less quality and more frustrating features than more expensive, professional models.

The speakers no long produce sound after using the headphone jack,,disconnected jack , still no sound


When you plug in the headphones, the jack itself routes the signal away from the speakers. When you unplug the headphones, the jack has contacts that close again, routing signal to the speakers. If the jack contacts are dirty, they won't close correctly. I suspect were you to clean the contacts, you'd solve the problem.

AVR590 sound cut out completely


try plugging in headphones and then unpluggin them. The headphone jacks on these units frequently go bad so the unit thinks that there are headphones plugged in even when there isn't. This causes the speaker to be shut off. This might fix it temporarily, the complete fix would be to have the headphone jack replaced.

No Speaker Sound, Thinks Headphones are Plugged in


If you don't plan on using the headphones - take the cover off and there may be a cable to the headphone jack board that can be unplugged. This will disable the headphone jack from sending a bad signal to the micro. If you want to be able to use the headphone, then the jack is going to have to be replaced.

Check sound from headphones. These models have been known to have bad headphone jacks that make the unit think there are headphones plugged in even when there isn't. Sometimes just plugging in headphones and unplugging them will fix it for a while.

No sound at all when headphones are plugged in


Hi, I apologize in advance for not offering a solution. Have just trolled through the handbook (on-line) for anything that might offer a clue. It takes both high and low impedance units so that's cool. They say to use the phones to assist with speaker issues and there's nothing to suggest that any of the settings affect them. Depending on the impedance the volume levels can change a fair bit so I guess you've cranked it up to check. The fact that they turn off the speakers doesn't add a lot, it can often be a simple mechanical switch in the socket when the plug is inserted. Does the 'speaker off' indicator come on when you plug them in. The only other things I'd suggest is both try another set of phones regardless and the other is reset all the sound settings to factory and see if that has any affect. Else you likely have an issue with the phone interface circuitry.

How do I hook up my blue tooth headphones to my onkyo SR 605


You cannot rig up a blue tooth headphones to this receiver with out a blue tooth transmitter ( the Onkyo does not have one built in ). If you have a transmitter it can be plugged into the headphone out socket of the Onkyo ( in front ), just remember that it will cut out the sound from all your speakers when you insert the headphone jack . The advantage though with this connection is you can control the headphone volume using the Onkyo remote.

It turns on,everything works normal and sound even comes out of the headphone jack.but there is no signal coming out of the speaker jacks.no sound or test tone


Hi depending on the design some receivers , when you plug in headphones, speaker sound is disconnected by the headphone socket so it could be faulty, or there may be a separate switch to switch of the speakers, (while using headphones) if so that switch could be suspect. I dont think the amplifier part of the receiver is at fault as you say you can hear sound at the headphones. It is not impossible though that a fuse has blown inside the amp, If you unplug from mains and look inside you may spot a blown fuse , (only replace with one of the same rating).
Hope this helps

No I don't think so . These are complex units . If your headphones work then is routing the sound to the output circuit then you should get sound out the output jacks.

Your system is designed to interrupt the signal flow once headphones are attached. It can not be changed without internal modifications. There is no control to do this.
