Onkyo CR-505Dab - no sound!

My Hifi turns on and all the controls work apart from one. The volume won't go up / down. When it worked the remote moved the sound dial - now it doesn't. My dad (who is a boffin) checked the insides and all parts have power as far as he can tell. I would like to get a circuit diagram so we can try to figure out which chip / component is unwell. I haven't blown the amp (honest) it just stopped working one day. It did used to go straight to clock setting when powered up but I just put in a CD and it generally worked. On some occasions I had to turn it off and on with the CD button pressed down. I should have contacted richer sounds when this first happened - doh. It's out of warranty (I got it for my 40th and I'm 43 and a bit). Any ideas would be much appreciated. BTW the beastie is at my dad's and he won't be back until the 1st Jan.

    Thanks for the reply wierdal. I've tried the knob on the hifi and it doesn't work so its not the remote. I emailed onkyo to try to get a bit of help - maybe a nice tech guy will be full of christmas cheer (maybe not and I'll have to get my hand in my pocket). Happy New Year - Jim



    I'm new to online shopping - where should I look? or should I stick with Richer Sounds in town.

The problem could be with the remote itself. The volume buttons on remotes usually get the most use and therefore wear out. Try using a universal remote programmed for your Onkyo and see if that works.

Buttkicker Gamer 2 Amplifier won't turn on, light stays orange when it should be green. used to be a struggle sometimes to get it to turn green by using the remote, now it just stays orange all the...


Your Gamer 2 Amp turns on whenever an audio signal is present on the input. The amp can have trouble tuning on if the output of the source (computer sound card, etc.) has been turned down. This can happen easily if you use amplified speakers - if you turn the sound card's volume control down - and then increase the volume at the amplified speaker - the resulting sound is the same; even though the signal has been lowered. The problem is that the output from the sound card isn't sufficient to turn on the Gamer 2 Amp.

Try turning down the external speaker volume, then bump up the sound card volume. You'll probably need to adjust the other inputs individually (Wave, Mic, CD, etc) so that none is too loud or soft. Once the input values have been set, gradually increase the output of the sound card in the control panel application etc. while decreasing the volume on the amplified speaker to maintain a comfortable level. Eventually, you'll find the correct volume level on the sound card output that will wake up the Gamer 2 Amp.

If you're still having trouble, review the manual, here. I hope this helps & good luck!

Just got a vintage Onkyo receiver mod # TX-840. I have a very scratchy sound in both A and B right channels on all sources. Figured it was a blob channel HOWEVER this unit has a


Vintage hardware means vintage contacts on all the controls which means oxidation which would cause crackly sound or total silence. Typically, it might be a switch you rarely use, like a Tape Monitor or Mute. It's wise to occasionally (with power OFF) manipulate all manual controls throughput their ranges a number of times to wipe oxides from their contacts. Beyond that a trip to the hifi doctor would be advised.

Volume control on remote does not always work. Is there something under the button that wears out? How to get inside remote to repair.


Hi, it's easy to fix. Most time when a remote volume control buttons does not work, it's usually caused by dirt inside or water spilt on the remote control, And when the button inside has moist, it responds slowly and does not respond at all.

What to do is this, Open the remote control, you will see a panel inside that controls the button functions. Use a cloth to wipe the all panel inside and close it back. Your done!!!.

But if it still those the same way,that means the damage is beyond repairs, You willneedto get another remote...

Hope it helps.

Thanks for using fixya....

The volume will not turn down


Do the volume controls on the stereo itself (not the remote) work? Try using a universal remote to lower the volume.

Kenwood stereo control amplifier KC-206 doesn't work


I was able to use an universal remote control that I have, a Radio Shack Kameleon 6 in one remote control which I was able to program to run the audio portion of the Kenwood KC 206 control preamp. By adjust the remote sensor volume to max, I was able to get maximum volume out of the unit and drive the power section very nicely. Now I have to get up and manually turn the manual volume control for addition volume adjustment.

Hopefully Ken can find a remote that he can control the Kenwood control preamp the same way I did. Good luck here.

Onkyo Integra A-809 input selector switching by itself


This is not an IR problem. Could be just loose connectors and dry joints. You'll need to open the unit and visual inspection of the PCB and connector for abnormality.

Good luck.

Don't know how to adjust volume on remote speakers


Can I ask you something? I have the same but the remote doesn't work, and I have no sound in the B speakers. I wonder if there's something that I have to do with the remote, or there's a problem with the receiver, Thanks.
