Onkyo TX-8211 receiver with very low volume through speakers

I have not used this received for a while, but when I turned it on today I had to crank up the volume to max just to hear a muffled sound from the speakers. I tried it with a different set of speaker on both the A and B channel, same problem. I also plugged another receiver to the speakers and it worked fine. So, I'm sure it is not the speakers. Any thoughts on what might need to be fixed?

Thanks,
Steve

make sure that somehow the wires didn't get loose from the speakers in the back. Protect means that it's overloaded. Did you change the plus wires with minus wires maybe. Check to make sure all the wires are good.

I have a TX-8211 but I am out of town looking at Internet Radio tuners. Can you tell me what type of inputs are on the Onkyo? I know it has the black/red spring loaded wire inputs but are there other...


Your tuner will be the limiting factor regarding sound. The Onkyo accepts any stereo analog input via RCA connectors, period.

Those "black/red spring loaded wire inputs" are speaker outputs and if you hook one of those to an innocent audio device's Line In connections you might kiss it all goodbye.

My onkyo tx-ds838 motor fan do not move


The fan in those Audio System only turns at about 1/4 to 1/3 of the ride of your volume control.
It had been intentionnaly designed like that, to achive a quiet operation at low hearing volume.
But if the fan don't move by cranking up the volume at 1/2 to 5/8 of the volume control (with speakers on). You need to have the fan or the fan power circuit checked by technician.

Onkyo TX 8211 protection mode is activated and i want to know how to deactivate it????


Eliminate the short or overheating problem it thinks exists. Disconnect all speakers first to see if one of them is the culprit. If it's internal, take it to a shop.

Rear Speaker volume too low


Channel level output can be adjusted in the menu if you have the remote. Set the rear channel level volume higher and the fronts lower if need be, and then turn up the volume. Enjoy!

Vollume trouble


the system protect is usually displayed when a condition of short or shorting is occurring in the speaker wiring or the voice coil of any of your speakers.... thte circuit of you reciever is trying to protect itself and you from a very costly repair,,,so it you have another set of speakers try to use them and see if the condition still exists and if it does the problem is in the output section of the receiver,,,and if the protect no longer exists you have fixed your problem,,,good luck
