Onkyo 325 model- burning smell

Hi,

Have had this unit for a week now, absoulutely fantastic sound. It does however have a burning smell coming from it still. I assumed it would be there for the first couple of plays to burn off any dust, but it is still happening. Have you come across this before?

Many thanks.

Jamie Churches.

    Could the smell be described as a "hot plastic" kind of smell, like of a new product that is running hot? Was this a brand new unit purchased or previously owned?

Hi...I have a Onkyo CS-V720S ...I would like add at these sistem ACTIVE SUBWOOFER, CENTER AND SURROUND SPEAKERS...what model of speakers do you recommend?...........thanks


Whatever additional speakers you decide on they all have to be self-amplified.

If you want opinions you could search the web for some actual user reviews. I don't know how many of the 'experts' have any experience with that end of the line. I read a few but never found anyone who actually decided to expand on the basic unit's stereo-only capabilities.

Maybe check out Amazon for what "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought".

This sounds like an internal amplifier problem. Did you smell anything burn? Try turning it off completely and plugging it to a different outlet.

If all else fails, have it checked by an electronics technician...

Acoustic Research Model AW871 wireless sterio speakers


Your connection between the AR transmitter and the ONKYO receiver sounds solid. I'd guess it's the wireless speakers that are the wrong point, or at least that's what I'd look at first. Doing a bit of research, I noticed a couple minor points. First, these seem prone to RF interference from other RF devices. Have to tried switching channels on them? Second, someone reported theirs would not work properly unless the speakers were turned on just before the transmitter, and turned off shortly after the transmitter. Apparently you have to hold the button on the front in for 5 seconds to turn the speakers on or off. I know that's rather basic, but it's been a few days and no one else has responded, so I figured we should start somewhere.

I got a new Onkyo Cs-525 with Onkyo speakers a month back. My vendor said that it will take 300 hours of playback before my speakers completely burn and start giving the the best possible output. Now I...


Burn-in? On speakers? Never heard of it, especially for something not pretending to be sky-high esoteric and expensive, following the believing-is-seeing (or hearing) rule.

If I had to guess, I'd say you're hearing speaker buzz from stress or resonance from something in or near the speakers. Does it manifest itself at all levels, both speakers, all sources (analog and digital)?

Wild guess... are track lights present and ON when you hear the problem?

Onkyo CR-325


According to the manual, the sleep timer can be set to shut the unit off after a specific time. The other timers can only be used to trigger the amp to play or recored at specific times, and only if the recieiver is left in standby, otherwise the timers are ignored. There should be no reason the sleep timer does not work if you are following the procedure outlined in the manual (http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/ONKYO/CR-325-_E)
Sounds like the transformer or something went in the other amp. Not related to the timer issue. Both amps having the smae timer issue suggests that it is a programming issue (follow the procedure in the manual step by step), if you still cant get it to work, get it covered under warranty while you can.\
Hope this Helps

Speakers humming. No reception.


The audio amplifier in the unit has failed, and that's what you smell. Turn it off and quit using it immediately - it presents a fire hazard. It might be possible to replace the bad parts. Depending on what it cost, you might want to take it somewhere for a repair estimate, but be prepared to learn it might not be fixable. Often the burned parts damage the circuit board as well.

Usually this happens in small stereo systems because of running them at high volumes for a long time. If you want to listen to loud music, you would be better off putting the money into a higher-power system.

Onkyo MC35T model C707CHX


I have the same problem on a refurbished unit I bought 2 years ago. I read at the time that this is a common problem and you just need to send to an Onkyo service center. There are links on the Onkyo or ShopOnkyo website.

Lousy design I guess.

Onkyo DR-UN7 DVD Receiver remote control code


Nowdays there are CLONE type remotes available form electrical stores.

These clone type remotes carry all the codes necessary to work TV, Vdeos, CD players and other domestic sound systems.

I would suggest that you visit one of these stores and see what they have for your ONKYO system, the cost is not great and you will walk out with a complete remote for your system that will work all the other controls as well..
The stores have a fold out paper list, (thats very long) showing model and manufacturer detail for what codes you need to enter into the new remote to make it compatible wuith your ONKYO system.

Cheers From YUBEUT
