My dog did a tap dance on the remotes while I dozed on the couch. The result was complete loss of sound. I proceeded to push buttons, because usually I get lucky and stumble on a solution. I have cable and I pushed the "On Demand" button, when I closed it out most of the sound came back. Everything seems to be back except the sound for the DVD player. Can you help me??

Now the story comes into focus (somewhat). The remote probably had a button or two pushed while it was 'lost' and a setting in the Durabrand (model???) is unintentionally changed. FIND THE MANUAL and examine every indicator to see what was changed.
Please determine if the "Audio" button is actually working.... after pressing the audio button, can you still control the DVD, if not then the remote has switched to the Onkyo. Although, this is not 100% conclusive, unless you have a 2nd remote to test the Onkyo with, it provides a sound basis to proceed.
Assuming the remote is transmitting and the IR receiver on the front of the Onkyo is not otherwise blocked, likely faults include the IR receiver, input to the Micro processor, and the Micro processor.
The most probable fault is the IR receiver.
Thank you for using Fixya, and if I can help you further, please let me know.
there is a bulb inside the backlight on the lcd display.it is 12 volt and alot of manufacturers run it from the +- 15 volt preamp power supply,on the plus rail.when the bulb burns out it can activate the dc speaker protect,or some other 12 or 15 volt circuit..if it is a flourescent display that is a different problem.those run on 5 12 18 and -32 volts.there is also a 6 volt ac filament voltage.you need the schematic.
What do you mean by "sound programming"? -- I guess it's the ability to change the sound processing, such as from Stereo to Dolby Digital, or to Dolby Pro Logic or Virtual Surround, etc.? Maybe there's a "Direct" or "Pure" or "Tone Control Defeat" button that was pushed, which often (or always!) bypasses all the sound-processing circuits? Check the front panel and/or your remote for such a button and try that. If it's a DVD player, it may be that the audio connections were accidently pulled or changed. Assuming it's the latter (more likely): Either the digital/analog output setting of the DVD player or the setup of the receiver could have been changed. Next, this is a guess, but most likely, it is the receiver that was tweaked -- in order to listen to some other source (such as the tuner), and it is no longer set up to process the digital signal, but stays in analog mode -- AND there's no analog audio connection from the DVD player (or it was not set-up to output analog to the receiver, since the preferred signal is digital surround). Am I getting warm?
The receiver is looking for a specific "audio input" It's currently locked on analog or digital. Using the Sony remote, go into the main menu for the receiver, toggle to audio and select "auto" that should do the trick. Hope this helps
I had the same problem,. I when in to settings on my dvd player while the dvd disk was on stop mode, (by pushing display buttom in remot.) in settings I activated sound and better picture by choosing componet. hope this help....resolution (set your dvd righ not your tv.)
