Speaker set up problem


Just bought an sr506 yesterday, am having probs hooking my speakers up to it. i have a 5.1 speaker package and am not sure which ports on the back of my amp i connect my surround speakers to; the surround back left and right port or the surround left and right? i've hooked my center speaker to center port on amp, front left and rigth speakers to front left and right port on back of amp but dont know where i hook my surround speakers. As i said before it's only a 5.1 set not 6/7.1. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

    Thanks for your post mate, thing is there are two different ports for surround sound on the back of the amp, one says Surround BACK left and surround BACK right and the other just says surround left and surround right so for 5.1 would i connect the rear speakers to surround BACK left and surround BACK right and NOT surround left and surround right? sorry if this all sounds confusing!!

I have a Av receiver tx-sr506,and it has these proble,the standby led is flashing and when turn on it goes back to the flashing standby mode,can i have any idea to fix it or any tech who can fix it.

The flashing indication is telling you to seek professional help. You have have a short circuit in your output stage and your Onkyo is going into protection mode to prevent further damage. The least you can do is to switch off speaker A and B and try switching on the Receiver. If the then the system turns on you have an external shorting in the speaker wire or speaker itself.

Rear speakers L and R not working

if its a 5.1 channel home theater,it means you have to hook up the subwoofer or maybe a center speaker to its terminal to have them all working. 2 front speaker,2 rear speaker and 1 center speaker or subwoofer =5 and amplifier is 1 so it is a 5.1 channel.hope this help..

TX-SR506 Bi-Amping

If you select bi-amping the device will use a second amp for your rear speakers, this indicates that in your setup menu you probably have deleted the rears (set to None). Try to find the settings for your rear speaker in your setupmenu and see if they are selected in normal operation.
If all fails, see if you can reset teh device back to factory settings, sometimes software can get confused after using for a while. Resetting should than fix most problems.

You can also check and see if there is maybe a software update available for your device, loading and installing is explained in either the file or on manufacturers site.

Whoa,ok.Sounds like things aren't connected properly.The first step is to disconnect the TV and concentrate on getting sound from a dvd or cd.Read the owners manual and double check that the speakers are hooked up correctly and that the unit is in the correct surround mode.Next, connect the TV.Use an RCA cable to go from an "Audio out" jack on the TV to an input jack on the Teac -e.g. "Aux, TV, etc.If your TV doesn't have the proper jack, I'm afraid you're out of luck.
