    I checked and this is not the problem. I did notice that when I turn the volume all the way up on receiver that I was able to hear sound out of speakers. Also, when the problem started I was listening to satellite radio thru the internet. Can't seem to get sound out of the computer now either.

    Thanks for your help,

No sound out of the pioneer vsx-1121-k

Try removing all the speaker and the HDMI connections; then use a headphone to listen to music from the tuner or a CD in stereo mode. Better in direct mode. If you hear your music correctly the receiver could be working correctly. If no music is heard, you may need to have it repaired professionally.
If you can hear music, connect the main FL & FR speakers and verify you can hear music that way, without the headphone connected.
If you can hear music that way, connect the center and rears. Try a mode that uses all channels to verify all sound channels are working.
Then, and only then start adding your HDMI connections.
Good luck

Speakers and headphones do not work

Sadly this could indicate that the main power amp has failed. You should try turning it up really loud with some music playing. If you can hear it very faint, then the main amp has failed. If you can hear hum, then the pre-amp might be the cause. The only other cause is that the headphone socket has broken, cutting off both speakers and headphones.

If you are not hearing dialogue, then check your center speaker. Most voice tracks are routed to the center channel

Hi, I have a 3 year old Onkyo TX-SR506 receiver that I bought secondhand. The receiver can get very dusty so I was cleaning the top with a damp cloth while listening to music. Suddenly the music stopped...

I don't think its a harmless coincidence that it happened while you were touching it.

Assuming 'damp' means 'no dripping' I'd discount mositure as the cause. Was there something else you may have touched or caused to move during your actions, like speaker wires? Retrace your steps (with power off) and imagine what may have moved.

Disconnect the speaker wires at the receiver and see if that helps. If so, you just need to start adding speakers until it fails again or not, then isolate the cause if it is related to specific channel(s). If it doesn't come up 'naked' something cooked inside and a hands-on tech needs to get involved.

In the future - turn it off when manilpulating anything on, near or attached to it.

How do I connect my outside speakers to play?

The onkyo should still have a speaker A/B selector in the menu.
Check on the back panel for speaker A/B.
If it has or you decide to use Zone 2 you will need to set the sound programme to "stereo" so the rears and centre do not work.
You can still use a digital source.
You should be able to display the amp's menu on the screen.
Hook up "monitor out" (Yellow) via RCA connector to one of the "A/V inputs" (yellow) on the tv, this will show you a display of the menu and will make it eaiser to navigate.
