A friend who blind has purchase this item some time ago 2007 I believe. We have a number problems with it. 1/ There is a hum of 50 c/s from the deck (I assume from Mains Transformer) when switched on and...


initially it sounds like a ground hum Something is touching ground inside. have you had it open? Look at the out put SSR's and follow them to the out put jacks. can you replace the jacks if need be? have you tried different cables? Does it do it if you use another deck other than the Onkyo. If all looks good and you think the Onkyo is the issue you may have bad IC SSR(s). Do you have the Tech ability to replace the outputs {solid state relays}?
Let us know what conclusions you have come up with. Other wise the sad part is a $110 dollar repair bill or $189 new amp/deck.

How to connect Sony dvd player to onkyo TX-8511 receiver


The TX-8511 is an older AV receiver with only composite video inputs. Your DVD player may not provide this type of output as it's not capable of HD video. If your dvd player has a composite output with a Red, White & Yellow set of outputs, that will connect into the Video 2 inputs on the receiver. Your TV will need to connect up to the Video2 or Monitor output. You'll need a set of composite video cables with the red-white & yellow RCA type plugs.

Here is a link to the manual for this receiver:

I have an onkyo tx-nr901 that has developed a background hum. I have turned off all component devices connected to the inputs but still have the hum. Any suggestions or do I need to find a repair shop?


Just turning everything off is not a complete test for ground loops - although a real good start. You will need to disconnect each item so see if what is known as a "ground loop" is your culprit. If any components have standard 3 prong plug (with the pesky ground pin) they would be most likely. But, do them one by one. If its totally cleaned of anything but 2 speakers on the outputs, then the repair shop is in your future.

I have no output from subwoofer


Hello Fixya customer,

Thank you for your question.

Please check that the sub woofer and RCA cable are working by removing the RCA wire from the Sub woofer output of the Onkyou and touching the center terminal of the RCA plug. You should here a hum when it is touched.

If you get the hum, then the next step is to "Clear" the Onkyo by holding down the "VCR and Stby" button until you see "Clear" on the display. Warning, this will clear any settings special that you have made to the receiver, but will get you back to the Factory settings.

Lastly, check various sound fields, and the Sub woofer volume setting, if you still do not get sound, please have a Onlyo service center verify the output.

Thank you using Fixya.

A couple of weeks after initial setup of my brand new Onkyo XT-SR606 receiver, I noticed a loud buzzing noise that starts up approximately 10 min after the receiver is turned on. The buzzing is definitely...


The "buzz" you hear is a power hum made by the power supply transformer. It's technically called "Lamination hum" caused by the revering of electrical current through the power supply transformer. In some cases the hum can vibrate the chassis causing other loose material to vibrate. If you can, go to your dealer and check to see if other units of this same type typically make a hum this loud, and if not, see if he can solve the problem for you.

Onkyo Subwoofer Pre Out Problem


May not necessarily be the out put, discontect the sub from the receiver and see if it still makes a hum, Making sure that you turn auto on, off on the sub woffer.
If it still makes a hum, then you have a earthing problem, you can get a earth filter put on your internal wiring in your home, or you can remove the earth pin on your sub woffer

Hum from speakers


I suspect an open ground or bad cnnection in your hdmi cable to the amp from the sat.A hum is very indicative of that situation
