Question about Onkyo TX-DS696 Receiver

1 Answer

Have to jar the unit to power on and only works with sound modes

It used to shut off on its own and was finicky on when it would allow me to turn it back on and some of the sound modes worked. I took it apart and looked it over for any visible issues. I was able to shock it back to on and initially all the sound modes worked. None of the sound modes work now and the box still needs to be shocked most of the time to power on

You have a soft ware problem saw this a couple of times, return the amp to your dealer to send back to ONKYO for repair.

Yamaha RX-V595 receiver won't stay on


check ur speaker wires, try disconnect all wires from back of unit and then try to turn on unit .
if it stays on whit no wires attached than u have short connection at speaker wires .
if doesn`t come on then try to fasten screws at back of the unit ,
may sound like BS but if amp board don`t have good ground connection it can go in protection mode happened to me on RX-V592

Receiver when turned on is At 25 for volume the clicks and turns off. You can turn it on and turn down the volume so it will not shut off. However, it does not appear to play in surround sound DD or...


You have two different issues here which may be related (or not). Let me address them as separate issues:

1) If the unit shuts down only at high volumes, then either it is heating up (not likely) or there is some DC voltage getting to the final amplification stage. This will trigger the protection circuit which will shutdown the receiver. See the link for more info about protect mode in general.
( http://www.fixya.com/support/r5390728-protector_means )

2) The lack of surround would suggest that the unit is stuck in bypass mode or that the digital surround processing section is not working. Usually when this happens, any attempt to use a surround mode will result in no sound at all or very weak distorted sound. If you are getting sound at normal levels, then I would suspect that the main CPU is not telling the surround section to work. This can be a power suply problem, a CPU problem or even within the processing board itself. Without seeing waveforms within the receiver, I can't tell for sure.

The bottom line is that further investigation is needed. I would recommend that you take this to a shop and request a detailed repair estimate, Armed with that, we should be able to guide you through the repair or at least, provide more details.

Please keep us posted,

Thanks,
Dan

My reciever wont power on but the standby light will come on and when i press power, the stand by light just turns off


It sounds like the output transistors may be putting this into protection mode causing the unit to shut down to avoid further faults. It will need to be serviced.

Enters standby after being on for only a few seconds.


Sounds like either the volume is turned up too loud, or you have a short. Have you tried disconnecting all the speaker leads from the rear, and then powering it on? Usually if it turns on for a short time and then shuts off, it is throwing itself into protection mode.

Blinking standby mode light


With the unit unplugged, remove the top cover and use an ohmeter to check the 10 power transistors on the large heat sink; Q6050 thru 54 and Q6060 thru 64. If you find blown transistors (R<1 ohm from E to C) you'll need to replace them. Also check the large ceramic current sharing resistors, R6100 thru 04 next to the output transistors. These are dual 0.22 ohm, 2W resistors that typically fail open if overstressed. These are both common failures resulting from overloading the speaker outputs that will cause the proctection circuit to shut down the power supply at turn on. Good luck.

No home theater sound


Protect mode will kick in whenever a fault is detected.

You get the unit not powering up, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that is the protection switch that keeps shutting down the unit.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

Internal fault.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

Regards.

The unit is in protect mode. This effectively shuts off the output amplifier section. This happens because a problme is detected in the output section. This unit will require service. Most likely the output transistors have failed. Figure on $20-$40 for parts plus the local labor rate for repair cost.

Receiver only works in Stereo Mode and won't allow use of subwoofer


That sounds about right, about the audio processor IC most likly being the culprit. To repair this, a test tone should be inserted into the unit, and using an ocilliscope to trace the audio waveform through the circuit, and see where it craps out. There could also be a regulator componet from the power supply that is going out after start up and becoming intermittant. Sorry to say in this case there is no wasyy fix unless you have a schematic and the proper equipment. Time to take the unit into the reciver repair Place. Good Luck
