Question about Onkyo TX-DS494 Receiver
My receiver seems to have lost its ability to provide 5.1 surround sound. The only speakers that work are the Left and Right front speakers while in Stereo mode. It is unable to produce any sound using the optical or cable inputs from my DVD player or my cable box. The Dolby Digital light also no longer illuminates when DVD is selected and played. The nail in the coffin is that the Test Tones do not work for any of the 5 satellite speakers. I triple checked all connections and settings. While trying to get the test tones working, I turned up the volume almost max and I could hear a constant, very soft 'hiss,' so I know that some power is getting to the speakers. I have a feeling it's an internal issue. Please let me know if you think I should head to the repair shop. Also, any recommendations for repair shops would be appreciated.
I dont know if you already fixed the problem. but I have this problem before, and luckily its not internal. Check your speaker switches, speaker A and B. one of them only do stereo.
