Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver

Open Question

Onkyo tx-sr706 will not stay on

I just got a new Onkyo tx-sr706. When I turn it on, it immediatly turns off (about 3 seconds).

I followed the manual (which was strange to me that this was a problem listed in the troubleshooting part of the manual) unplugged it for one hour. Plugged it back in, same problem.

Is there a solution?

Also, I bought it from the bankrupt Circuit City, but it was an unopened box.

    We tried hooking it up with nothing plugged in (except the power, of course) and got the same results.



    Thanks, but my son is taking it back and going to try to swap it. Turns out, we think it was an open box that had been retaped. Go figure.

SOURCE: Onkyo TX-NR905 Protection Circuit Activated

The problem is not with the inputs. This unit is in protect because a problem has been detected in the output section. Try disconnecting the speaker wires and turning it on. If the unit remains on, there is a short in one of the speaker wires. If the unit still shuts down, there is an internal problem that will require repair. It sounds like this is a new piece. If so, it should be covered under warranty.

Keep us posted,
Dan

SOURCE: Onkyo TX-DS989 not staying on

This sounds like the action of some protection circuit that is monitoring some condition or voltage that isn't within its design limits. If it was mine, I'd look for an Onkyo forum to see if others have experienced the same problem.

SOURCE: Onkyo TX-SR706 monitor out

Monitor out is non assignable.  Monitor out is for the purpose of putting your selected devices audion and video out to the television or display.  For assinment of out putting different devices that what you are listening to on the main stereo unit you need to have a 2nd room or zone output.

SOURCE: 2 month old ONKYO TX-SR706 speaker circuit problem

This is a problem with the surround sound processing. Effectively the digital signal is not being processed properly. Since this unit is so new, return it and request either an exchange or at least warranty service. The DSP board will likely be replaced.

SOURCE: Onkyo TX-SR706; Turntable output only from one speaker

Try some troubleshooting to check whether its the turntable or the the receiver.

What happens if you exchange the output cables of the turntable from left to right. Does the problem shift?
Does the sound changes from left to right speaker?

Similarly try on the inputs of the Receiver.. does the problem shift...?
This way you will be able to isolate the problem, whether with the receiver or the turntable....

Let me know, we can trouble shoot it further....

My Onkyo TX-SR600 shuts off after a few seconds when I turn it on


Hello, I am sorry about your issue. I suggest disconnecting all of the speakers from the receiver and unplugging it for at least one hour. Plug back in and turn on. If it does not stay on it would need to be serviced or traded in. It it stays on turn off and add one speaker and turn on. Follow this process until all speakers are connected. If you are interested in a trade in please contact us at 800-229-1687 option #3. Thank you, Onkyo USA

I have the TX SR706 receiver for two years and yesterday when I turn it on it did a load boom sound and since then there are no sound


I had this happen to my unit shortly after I purchased it. When I turned the receiver on there was a loud pop through the speakers, the red light on the front started blinking and the unit failed to produce sound.

A tack worked its way through one of the speaker wires, causing a short. I replaced the wire and unplugged the receiver for an hour. It's worked well for the past two years since this issue.

If you haven't done so already, check all of your speaker wires and plugs on the receiver and the speakers. You may have a damaged wire or metal-on-metal contact somewhere. Try these steps:

1. Unplug the unit and disconnect all wires and connections. Let the unit sit for an hour.

2. Check all cords for damage or crossed connections.

3. Reconnect the power cord and set the volume to minimum. Turn the receiver on. If it stays on, shut it off, unplug it and reconnect everything, taking care to ensure that speaker wires and/or plugs don't make contact.

4. Plug the receiver in, set the volume to minimum (it should already have this setting after step 3) and turn it on.

It sounds like there is a short somewhere in either the wiring or the receiver. This caused the popping noise and activated the receiver's protection circuit. If it's a damaged wire or plugs or wires making contact, you can reset the unit with the directions above, replace or separate the wires and all should work. If the issue is within the unit, you'll have to contact Onkyo directly.
