FM plays extremely low volume

All FM functions work perfectly, though you have to turn up the volume to MAX to barely here anything.

    Yea, everything works perfect on this receiver but the FM problem above. As if the unit had a -90db mute switch for the FM only.
    Thanks!

Two things to check:

1) Verify that the tape monitor switch is not on. If it is on you hearing crosstalk only.

2) Verify that the unit has a jumper wire from pre-amp out to Amp-in, if your unit has it.

If neither of the above are the problem, please post the make and model and further details will be provided.

Thanks,
Dan

    There is ususally a "pre-amp" section for the tuner that may be defective. This is before the switching IC/system so it won't effect any other selection. Please send along the make and model so I can give you the part that is likely to be at fault here.



    Thanks,

The volume is deterorating even at volume 22 which used to be fine i now cant hear anything until volume 25????


Usually speaker volume does not just deteriorate unless affected by other factors. First try playing other media like disc and FM transmission or even connect another source of sound to the unit. If the problem persists then the problem is from your unit and not form the source of media.
Next check to ensure that all the speakers are properly connected and functioning if at this stage the volume is still low then the unit is having problems from the sound output capacitor to fix this you have to refer to an expert.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Turn the volume down to about 1/4. If you can't hear it there it isn't going to suddenly appear at higher volumes. Never troubleshoot anything with the volume at or near maximum.

Look for a mispositioned Mute or tape Monitor control.

The receiver is muted when playing in tuner or cd the volume is not coming through the speakers. We can hear it muted when turning up to max its very low. Lost instruction manual can you help. I think my...


I can't find a manual either. Can I assume you really mean the sound is muted for EVERY source, not just tuner and CD?

I'd guess it's either MUTED or a Tape Monitor is active. Turn the volume down, select FM as the source, tune a station and use it as your test source. Look around for indicators that give a clue.

NEVER troubleshoot anything with the volume control turned way up. You'll blow up or damage the speakers and your hearing right after you discover and correct the misplaced control.

When I plug my Onkyo receiver in it turns on and off on its own in intrevals of about one second. Is this a bad power supply or something else?


follow these steps:
*disconnect everything from the unit (treat it as if you just got it out of the box) no speaker wires no cables.
* turn on the unit and max the volume (w/o anything connected)
*if the unit shuts off during step 2 you need to send it in for service (go to onkyousa.com for the nearest service center)
*if it didn't shut off during step 2 you need to play the tuner and connect one speaker at a time.
EXAMPLE: connect your left speaker and then play the FM and then max the volume for about 2 seconds then turn it down.
if you were successful in maxing out the volume on the left speaker continue with the other speakers until you isolate w/c speaker is causing the issue. if your gonna ask why the FM...its because its a direct playing source but you can still use a cd player or a tape deck to try it out.

take note: if your receiver shuts down on a speaker that you have connected make sure to have that speaker checked or better yet replace it.

No sound


1. check if the amp is in PROTECTION mode (might be a bad speaker or shorted output)
2. check the 'MUTE' switch
3. try to use the FM/AM mode to isolate an input source. If there is sound then check input source.
4. ...still no sound have a techinician check it.

Audio very low, even when turning volume knob up over half way.


you have a damaged audio selector chip in your amps input stages. Can be easily checked. they are stereo down each side with many inputs a few outputs. Sometimes are marked. Check with osc scope or signal sniffer. you may have to replace more than one. they share a common clock and serial data lines so operation of one can effect many
