Re: Onkyo SR606 - Loud Poping
It could be a number of things, 1. an electrical short in the house. Try plugging it into another circuit with an extension cord. 2. A bad RCA cable that is input from one of your sources. 3. its probably a bad unit if you have Zone one and two playing at the same time the same source, but it only happens on zone 1. 4. a bad speaker can make a poping like sound, does it happen on all speakers? unplug all but one and one at a time try to determine if the problem sticks, if not, then one of the speakers is out of phase or blown. 5. Playing music froma computer source will sometimes make a pop if your computer is slow or bogged down with checking emails..etc. mine sometimes studders PPPPPPPrioRRRRRity CCCCCLLLLLLLLEEEEERRRRANCCCEE AAAAAAALLLLPPPPPHAAAA OOOOOOONE. it also pops real loud when booting or shutting down. Personal note ........windows is such a hassle for Media systems.

The reference to Zone 2 means that your Onkyo receiver is set to be remotely controlled from another location. Normally, this arrangement would be initiated at the time of set up but could be done later. You may have to repeat the initial set up routine to get things back to normal
I have the same two problems! "Zone 2" works, but the main amp will make a noise and then stop working. Sometimes when I change the listening modes around it will start working. Lately, though, "zone 1" has gone out altogether.
Audyssey is the licensed feature this receiver uses for room and dynamic equalization. It sounds like the Audyssey process is activated. The manual says the Audyssey indicator "flashes during automatic speaker setup".
Has this unit ever worked or are you still setting it up?
What sources make it happen or which do not? All buzzing = something in the amplifier end. is it from all speakers or just one?
One external source= RCA cables not grounded. Reconnect them tightly with a twisting motion to wipe off oxidation.
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.
restore the receivers to factory settings by pressing and holding the dvr/vcr button then press the stand by button. this would erase all assignments made so you would need to redo the assignments of your sources to the receiver, then activate zone 2 by going in to the hardware setup(7.2)
Looks like you've got the best connection available - initially I thought it might have something to do with decoding the prologic signal from the analog input, but obviously not! And since you've got the audio separate from the video it is unlikely there is any interference from the video signal in the cable. Have you tried a different DVD player (I reckon that is most likely)? Also try connecting the video signal DIRECTLY from DVD to the TV if you aren't already doing so (you are anyway aren't you - the HTR 5660 doesn't have HDMI out does it?) Finally, if you have some spare cables around, try changing them - see if you get the same response when using component video cable instead of HDMI.
