Question about Onkyo TX-SR506 Receiver
I cannot find any way to control the volume of Zone 2 without using the remote. Is there any way to do it?
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.

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

If desired, repeat steps I to 3 (of this section) for each device that you want volume to be unlocked.

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.

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

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.
