SOURCE: Buzzing/vibration noise from ONYKO TX-SR506 unit

If the unit is under warranty, DO NOT open it up. Bring it in for an exchange or warranty service. Explain that the unit makes noise during use and it will be serviced. This could be as simple as a bad connection in the power supply area and you are hearing oscillations or it could be a defective power transformer. Either case will be covered under warranty so there should be no charge to you.

Keep us posted.

SOURCE: What remote control code does the Onkyo TX-SR304 use?

From: http://www.comcast.com/remotes/universal.html - only worked for me when I had AUX setup with 30135

Unlocking Volume Control For A Single Device (Individual Volume Unlock):

  1. Press a desired mode key where you want volume to be unlocked (e.g., AUX) and controlled within its own mode.
  2. Press and hold SETUP until the selected mode key blinks twice, then release SETUP.
  3. Enter 9- 9- 3 and then press VOL- once. The mode key will blink four times confirming unlock.
    If desired, repeat steps I to 3 (of this section) for each device that you want volume to be unlocked.
Now, after you select a device that has volume unlocked (e.g., AUX), pressing VOL , VOL-, or MUTE will control the device's volume only in its own mode.

SOURCE: TX-SR506 Bi-Amping

If you select bi-amping the device will use a second amp for your rear speakers, this indicates that in your setup menu you probably have deleted the rears (set to None). Try to find the settings for your rear speaker in your setupmenu and see if they are selected in normal operation.
If all fails, see if you can reset teh device back to factory settings, sometimes software can get confused after using for a while. Resetting should than fix most problems.

You can also check and see if there is maybe a software update available for your device, loading and installing is explained in either the file or on manufacturers site.

SOURCE: zone 2 volume control

Sounds like the Zone 2 amp was set to external, see below for instructions on setting it back up.
How do I setup Zone 2 on the RX-V661 Using the internal power amp.

Setting the RX-V661 remote control to operate Zone 2
1. Using a ballpoint pen or similar object and press the Code set
button. The Transmit indicator on the remote should flash twice.
2. Using the numerical key pad on the remote and key in 9992, the
Transmit indicator should flash.

You will now need to assign the receivers internal amp for Zone 2.

1. Set the remote control selector to AMP. Selector is on side of remote.
2. Press the Set Menu Button.
3. Arrow down to Manual Setup.
4. Press the Enter button.
5. Arrow to the Sound Menu option and press Enter.
6. In the Sound Menu arrow to Speaker Set and press Enter.
7. Arrow to the EXTRA SP ASSIGN and select ZONE2. This may require using LEFT or RIGHT arrow.
8. Press the Return button to exit out and return to the Manual
Setup.

SOURCE: i have a onkyo tx-sr506 receiver that turns it self off

This unit is in protect mode. This means that a problem was detected and the unit has shutdown to prevent further damage. The most common cause of this is failed output transistors. Plan on $20-$40 for parts for this repair.

My Onkyo TX-SR506 plays cable and CD inputs to zone 2, but DVD won't play. Everything is connected according to the manual and I assigned zone 2 output correctly. What gives?


How are your cable and cd inputs hooked up? Analog connections? Alot of receivers cannot send an audio signal from hdmi inputs to zone 2.

Should i use an amplifier with the txsr506. i dont know if im doing anything right with the receiver. i feel like its two low on volume


It HAS amplifiers. You don't daisy-chain amps.

Get the manual and take some of the gueswork out of the process. Set it up and come back with specific questions.

It always puzzles me when someone fixates on the remote when a unit has front-panel controls. You say "The pot does not seem to be the issue." Does that mean it is ineffective or is it faultless in your estimation?

The HUGE volume knob (#16 on page 8) controls volume (in the main zone), too.

If your complaint involves speakers on Zone 2, the up/down arrows at #22 on page 8 apply.

Denon AVR 1609 volume Zone 2


Logitech recommends that zone 2 is controlled using device mode on your Harmony remote. Controlling zone 1 and zone 2 simultaneously within activities may lead to the AV Receiver turning on and off unexpectedly as you switch between activities. For example, if you try to turn on zone 2 within an activity, it may turn on or off zone 1 and vice versa. Controlling zone 2 in device mode will prevent this from happening.
