Question about Onkyo TX-DS575 Receiver

2 Answers

No Sound My unit began to have trouble switching between DSP channels. At one point if I kept on switching modes it would finally "kick in". I noticed a second switch click when the receiver "worked". I tried the headphones as well as the speaker test function. Niether option would give me sound so I tested the speakers separately and they worke just fine with another amplifier. Please advise. Any help would be appreciated. I would like to rescue this amp. I cant't get a new amp and would be out in the cold if this amp can't be resurrected. Thanks.

    Same unit is about five years old and this is the first time I've had trouble. Did anyone try to switch to B speakers but did not have the speakers connected? I think this is what I did to cause the failure. I suspect a protection circuit tripped but the protection indicator is not lit. Just a guess.

Called Onkyo and here is the solution they gave me.

1. Turn on unit.

2. Press and hold VIDEO 1 button.

3. While pressing VIDEO 1, press Speaker A button.

4. You should see "CLEAR" on the display for a second and it will go on stand-by mode.
5. Turn on the unit and check if sound is back.

Hope this helps

Hi, I just started having the same problems with my Onkyo TX-DS575. I have to play with the DSP buttons...the A/B speaker button...and now it has gotten to the point where my family and I lift the receiver up in the front, and slam it back down on the shelf and then hit the DSP buttons again and eventually we get some sound. This unit was already fixed once by Onkyo right after the 2 year warranty ran out for a similar problem. They returned it working...but scratched. This is the second Onkyo receiver that has died an early death within 15 years. I love Onkyo's styling, ease of use and sound, but I found the best way to solve this was by purchasing the Yamaha RX-V861 this week. I am done with Onkyo. Scotty D, Middletown, NJ

Sound is shorting out...its not the cable that I am using I have no trouble with it in any other amp. The overdrive channel does not work at all. And randomly all the effects will just decide they want to...

It sounds like the DSP processor is either about to go out, or is mostly there. Have a qualified amplifier technician take a look at the DSP. Also look up the cost of a new one.

Hope that helps!

Hello how doi adjust the left and right balance for the left and right channel level

The only 'balance' is to adjust the channels relative to each other with the test tones.

Page 29.

The "Effect/Channel Select" button on the Remote (left of the Menu button), will let you change the level to any channels while listening to a program. Page 22

"EFFECT/CH SEL +/- buttons (See p.38)

EFFECT : Use these buttons to increase or decrease

the amount of effect applied in a DSP or Advanced

Theater mode. When the amount of effect is

increased in a DSP/Advanced Theater mode the

characteristics of that mode become stronger and

more noticeable. The scale ranges from 10-90 with 70

as the default setting. First turn on the DSP/

Advanced Theater you want (by pressing the DSP/

Advanced Theater button until you get the mode) and

then increase or decrease the amount of effect.

CH SEL : You may want to adjust the channels when

listening to some sound sources. Use this button to

select the channel you want to adjust.

+/- : Use these buttons to select the amount of effect
in a sound mode and to adjust the channel"

My yamaha DSP AX1 amp does not work when audio is connected via optical or coaxial any suggestions how to correct this. no sound comes from any speaker except the subwoofer.

Are all the speakers turned off (set to None) in the speaker menu.(except the sub)?

2 channel direct analog stereo may still work, but any surround modes will use the speaker settings and the full DSP digital section.

Check also the input mode isn't incorrect - although if the sub is wired correctly and gives sound this can't be whats wrong.

There is a music button on the front panel that allows you to select Jazz Club, Live and concert hall. It cycles between these 3 options and every time it switches, the audio cuts out

Momentary cutout is normal when you switch between DSP modes (Digital Sound Processing). The unit has to crunch the numbers anew each time you change the parameters.

STG DR510 no sound on left front channel

Can I assume the calibration procedure also didn't work for the Front left channel? (It's not a "surround" if it's in the front). Switch the receiver to Stereo mode to eliminate any DSP actions. Tune an FM station to eliminate any external device or cable issues. What do you hear from the two Front speakers?

OK? Select a DSP surround mode. Check all modes. What happens?

If the channel goes dead using some or all DSP modes there's probably something wrong with the processor. If they all work...

Isolate the source that exhibits the problem.

It was a bad left channel cable somewhere, wasn't it?

I cannot get the functions on the remote to pbass dsp/eq etc?

The P.BASS function is only available with 2 channel LPCM sources such as mp3,Divx,cd
and wma. Press P.BASS button and "POWER BASS ON" will be displayed on the screen.
The P.bass does not work with DSP/EQ or DOLBY PRO LOGIC ll modes.
If you press P.BASS in the DSP/EQ mode, the DSP/EQ mode is automatically shut off and the P. BASS function comes on.
The DSP/EQ function is only available in STEREO mode.
Press the PL ii mode button to show STEREO on the display.
This feature works with CDs, MP3-CDs, 2 channel DVD-Audio, DivX and Dolby Digital discs.
When playing a DVD disc encoded with two or more channels, multi-channel mode will be selected automatically and DSP/EQ function does not work.

No fm reception

We had trouble switching from AM to FM. We finally solved the problem by pushing the reset button on the back of the unit (any sharp pointed object can be used to engage the reset button). Do this followed by setting the mode to FM and try tuning in your FM stations. Try the procedure several times and it may finally kick in, as was the case with us getting our AM stations

XM 2 GO Not Playing

I had the same problem. I had to reset (use a paper clip into the RESET hole under the battery cover ( or pull out the battery for a a couple of minutes). Then, after recording some songs, I switched over MYXM and then began rotating the channel selector dial. The volume indicator arrow moved off zero and began advancing up the volume scale. I kept doing it until it about half way and my sound was back.
