Question about Onkyo HTR500 Receiver

1 Answer

Power on but no tuning or sound from other sources

My HT-R500 turns on, and I hear the speaker relays click on, but the receiver doesn't lock on a station, and when I connect an external source and select that input, I get no sound from anything. Any ideas?

Check for "Tape Monitor On" button. According to Onkyo's web page "Press and hold the tape button for two seconds allows the tape and MD sources to be switched - Also try the speaker A/B switch. - Check back for further assistance - The web page for your operations manual can be found at...

No sound from center speaker or subwoofer on HT-R500 av receiver


Take a left or right speaker that you know works and connect it to the center and test. Repeat for the sub.

Are you sure you setup the AVR correctly that it knows you have a center and sub?

Kenwood A722L no sound and volume led blinking


This could be due to a faulty speaker relay (if your unit uses one). Normally, the unit will "wait" a couple of seconds after you turn the unit on. Then you will hear a "click" and the sound will begin coming through the speakers. If the relay is faulty, it would cause the problem you describe.

I have an Onkyo AV Receiver HT-R500 and when I turn it on, it turns on and in less than one second it turns back to standby. What could be wrong?.


Try disconnecting all the speakers and see if it does the same thing. If it doesn't, connect speakers again one at a time to find out which one of them is doing it. Make sure the speakers rating match the output of the amp.

I have a pioneer receiver..vs 812....and sound has ceased to come out of it. It comes on....and switches between sources...but there is no signal coming from ANY source


First make sure the speaker A/B switch is on.
If still no sound, dissconect ALL speakers from the rear of amp.
Now turn on amp and listen for the relays to click in.
One relay will click when you press power. A couple of seconds later, the speaker relay will click in.
If it does, you could have blown outputs, bad speaker wiring, faulty speakers.
If it does not, the speaker relay may be faulty.
Hope this helps.

Onkyo ht-r500 no speakers attached goes directly into protect mode, standby light blinking..


I have a HT-R520 - First thing stated in the manual is 'Do Not Apply Power to the System Until All the Speakers Are Connected to the Receiver.' This practice avoids any hot connects to the speakers. As with any high-outpiut system connecting spreaker wires to the system while in operation can spike the speakers as well as the amplifier curcuits. Hook up your speakers first and give it a try. Good Luck!

JVC RX-9010VBK receiver - premap section won't turn on normally


It sound like a bad connection. The first thing that I would do is tighten all the ground screws that hold the circiut boards and the heat sink to the chassis. If that doen't fix it, flex the circuit boards slighty to see if the relays chick on and off (disconnect the speakers first). It could be on the input board, on the relays themselves or just about anywhere.

Connecting TV and DVD for surround sound


HDMI is fantastic in that's the only thing you need to plug in to get what you want.
You'll need two of them however. Plug one end of the HDMI cord into the HDMI "OUT" on the dvd player and the other end of it to the receiver..labeled HDMI 'IN' Then, take the second cord and do that step with the receiver back to your big screen...HDMI OUT to IN.
Surround sound from TV sources only needs a L&R audio cable connected to the receiver input labled TV or MONITOR audio IN. Unless you'd like 5.1 dolby digital or DTS from the television that requires devices that you haven't mentioned owning. In that case you will be able to get Dolby ProLogic and Pro Logic II from stereo broad casted sources on your TV.

I have a onkyo HT-R500 receiver and it keeps blowing fuses.


A receiver that recent usually has a detect circuit that keeps the outputs off until speakers are connected . So, if it bows fuses right away , it's really a power supply issue.
Probably the AC rectifier bridge.
