Question about Onkyo TX-DS676 Receiver

Onkyo sound popping / protected shows in the display

Lightening recently struck near our home. My Onkyo receiver is plugged into a Monster 3600 power filter. However, after the lightening strike, my receive now generates lots of noise and popping when I turn the volume up. Also it will pop, then show "protected" in the display, and an internal fan comes on. Is my receiver cooked, or can it be repaired?

Re: Onkyo sound popping / protected shows in the display

It depends on what happened to the receiver. Have you tried to connect up the unit to the wall socket yet, without the Monster power strip? If that does not help you, and the unit still gets pops and goes into protect mode, you have an issue with one of the output stages in the amp. I'm afraid that this type of repair can only be diagnosed by a tech who knows how to trouble shoot solid state amplifiers. You may also contact Monster cable, as if you can get the tech to agree with you on the cause of the problem, most of the Monster Cable power strips come with a warranty against this problem from happening and will pay for the repair. Good Luck

TX-SR705 60 hz. Hum

If you have a Home Theater Line conditioner on this receiver, not a power surge protector, even a "Monster" surge suppressor, your problem Is AC related. For troubleshooting; first if your AC power cord is three pronged, go to Lowes, Home Depot, etc. and get a three prong to two prong adapter. Your problem is a "Ground" issue, however it may not be from the receiver, it could be "Anything else" in your home. Even an actual outlet with a loose wire. It can be very very time consuming to "hunt down". An adapter will take the rest of the house out of the picture. Disconnect all other input sources like Cable, DVD, etc. then turn the unit back on. If you still have a humm, yes the problem is internal and needs serviced. If it stops, re-connect one item at a time until the noise re-appears and you have your culpret. If you don't have a line conditioning noise eliminating Theater surge protection unit; Get one! best few hundred bucks you could ever spend. It will protect all your electronics and could save you thousands! Panamax, Furman, Monster, are your top 3. If you still have issues, post a comment and I can help you further. Hope this helps.

I have the Onkyo TX-DS656. The problem is that the power is on, but I get no sound. House was struck by lightning and had a bit of a surge. All other functions seem to work just fine. Rumor has it that the...

The unit is in protect mode because a problem was detected in the output section. In all likelyhood, the output transistors have failed or a secondary power supply hs failed. Because this was the result of a power surge, I would suggest that you take this to a sericer and request a detailed repair estimate. This could be as simple as a voltage regulator gone bad to the microprocessor being fried. This is not a problem that can be diagnosed remotely.
