I hope you have listen to the advice of techman.to take in back the set, obviously you had bought a defected set,from the first out break you had not gotten any response from the set you should have returned it.meddling around with the set or causing any other third party meddling with it will void the warranty, you have on the set on purchasing.good luck.

Is there a tape monitor switch on the front of the unit that may be one, or on the display is there a tape monitor indicator? if there is the tape monitor may be on, and there would be no sound. but make sure the volume is turned down all the way or almost all the way down before you try to turn off any switches

First of all, be sure the volume is down fairly low so that you don't blow the speakers or the unit itself if and when the sound suddenly comes back. I've repaired many units whose owners turned them way way up to try to hear something, then flipped off a tape monitor or mute switch and got blasted. No sound with any input? (tuner, CD, etc.) Do you hear ANY noise or hiss from the speakers at all? I hate to ask, but are the speakers and inputs connected properly? On this model, the jacks are not set up beside each other as they usually are. Instead, the left channel speaker and input jacks are above the right channel jacks. This can be confusing! Are the speakers actually selected? The proper speaker select switch (below the power switch) must be in the down position. Is it possible that someone left a headphone adapter plug in the headphone jack? You know, the kind that allows you to use headphones with a 1/8" plug in that 1/4" jack? This will cause the speakers to be shut off. If you don't have the owner's manual, it's at http://www.intl.onkyo.com/downloads/manuals/pdf/tx-sr500_manual_e.pdf If none of this helps, the unit may have a problem and I would invite you to write back with more details on what you've tried, etc.
