    this is all common sense, not a solution. I think everyone knows how to clean dust out of electronics. Not to be rude, but dust build up wouldn't cut the volume. You might have blown a fuse, or your settings are set different. Worst case is that your speakers are not handling the high power input.

You have a shortcut, u need to verify ur speakers and the cables of all speakers, doit in this way:
1: remove all speakers cables from the amp.
2: connect 1 cable (this mean 1 speaker) only 1 each time and go to step 3..
3: turn on the amp, and increase the volume and see if this pass from the 41, the speaker that u r checking is fine.
4: doit with each speaker cable, this way u can check if the problem is a cable or speaker.

if in all speaker u have the same problem, means that the prob is inside the amp, and must be the toroid or maybe some one drop a clip or a metallic objet inside.

u can clean it, just buy an air spray (only compressed air) usually the spray has a little mouth with this u can introduce in the air breath of the amp, and clean it ( be sure to do it with the amp in horizontal way couse the spray sometimes spit cold water and can damage the amp.

if u try all and still the same i think u must take it to a service center.

good luck!!!

Onkyo AV Receiver TX-SR503 While sleeping with earphones connected, the receiver shut down and the standby light blinked. I unplugged the power cord, reconnected power and the receiver shut down...


Have you provided adequate ventilation?
May be your receiver is running hot and when there is loud volume it is obviously getting overloaded. There are no fans inside 674, the only way to provide good ventilation is to keep the top of receiver clear for atleast 6 to 8 inches.

Hope that helps.....

The Vol button on my Onkyo RC-588M remote doesn't work


It probably can be fixed. Dirt and such gets on the contact pads...take it apart by carefully unscrewing it and remove the top half with the buttons facing you. You will likely see that the buttons are made of molded sheet of silicone, lift that off. Beneath where the mold was for the volume control you will see the actual buttons that control the volume, inspect it to see if it simply got pressed down too far and try to operate it that way and clean anything that needs it while you have it open. If it works without the silicone button cover panel on it, then you can take a small peice of paper wad and tuck it into the mold for the volume button so that when you press on it, it always makes contact.

Onkyo HT-R500 amplifier protection circuitry activated


u have a short.

remove all speakers cables and turn it on, if remains on and u can up the volume do the next.
1: turn it off.
2: connect only 1 speaker cable (each time to see if the short is in one speaker or cable)
3: turn it on, up the volume.
this way u must be able to see what cable or speaker have the problem.

Onkyo ts595 goes into protect mode with volume increase


HI check your speaker cables are not touching, also make sure "b" speakers are not on and that all your speakers are 4ohm or higher as this will cause the amp to shut down if they are to low an impedeance,The amp is protecting itself when it shuts down.

hope this helps.

Onkyo TX-DS838 Issues


The problem here is that the output amplifier section has a problem. This is detected internally and the system shuts down in a "protect" mode. The output section really only kicks in when you attempt to bring up the volume. Another possibility is a problem in the "front end" where DC current is being passed to the amp section. Without takeing measurements, it is difficult to determine the exact cause. This should be a relatively stright-forward repair for a service shop and should cost about $20-$40 in parts plus the local labor charge.

Sound control is via TV remote only


You didnot mention wehther you selected external speakers on you tv. If your TV allows this then do that, first.

Also the sound input to your TV must come from some source, (cable/ Sat). You could remove the audio inputs to your TV and only allow the audio to go to your Receiver.

RCA cables will allow this to be easy just remove the red and white audio to your TV. If you have sent them to your reciever then you must balance the cable box volume (reduce to the lowest level , then raise your recievers vol until satisfied if you are to loud when you switch to a CD then raise TV vol until they match, so your CD doesn't play to loud when switching modes)

If you are using an HDMI cable to your tv than there has to be a setup for turning off the internal speakers on your TV.

Analog RCA input to HDMI output?


You have said the correct thing HDMI is digital therefore Analog will not pass.
You might have RCA audio outputs on your cable box so either send them into the TV from cable or into the AMP then use AMP volume to listen to TV audio (select unused input and remember it is for TV) the key is to remember that cable box will drive the initial vol so raise or lower cable vol then use AMP vol to obtain desired volume.
