Question about Onkyo TX-NR1000 Receiver

1 Answer

No audio coming from my receiver

I had my TX-NR1000 off and disconnected for two weeks while on vacation to protect it from power surges and such. When I reconnected the receiver,it worked fine for a couple hours and then the sound went away while watching/listening to Sat TV. The receiver remained on and all switching functions worked, only no sound (not even the test tone) from any source and to neither A or B speakers (not even to the headset). I turned it off and on and sound came back for a minute and then it was gone again. On my second try it didn't come back at all. IF I set it for Direct Audio there is sound. So it would seem that the problem is in the DSP, since any and all processing kills the audio. What do you think? I have already tried: disconnecting all speakers and external sources, initializing the receiver, connecting only one speaker at the time, letting it connected for a couple of days, disconnected for a few days... I do have the Service Manual in case you want to point me to a section in there. A local technician (not Onkyo service) tells me the amps are operational. Thank you!

Had a power surge and now my Onkyo TX-SR607 will not power on. Only get a constant click sound. Any repair advice?

although power surge can trigger activations of protection circuits,

there are at times, damage is done before it is activated.

• Check first for low power supply regulators,

then check for possible output stage failure.

let me know if you need further assistance!

I have an Onkyo TX-NR1000. After pushing very hard during a party one night, The Next day my kids turn it on and after it running for about an hour it went into protect mode then shut off. It had a smell...

This unit probably has separate output transistors which could be checked for shorts. I would also look for cracks in any of the transistors or IC's that may have overheated. Don't forget to check the speakers also as one or more of those could have a shorted voice coil that is feeding back to the amp.

Turns off as soon as you turn it on...amp circuit protection

It might just be a problem with the power supply unit within the receiver. Recent power surge perhaps, or power outage?? If you are up to it, remove the casing and look to see if there are any blown fuses on the circuit boards. Unplug the unit before you start fishing around in there. Hope this is helpful.

Hey , with the Onkyo TX-NR1000 can I get started plugging two speaker while I gather enough money to buy the surround sound speakers. Also your opinion on speaker choices is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Sure you can only connect 2 speakers. As for brand recommendation Polk audio makes some fine sounding speakers also Klipsch, Boston acoustics, too many to suggest. If you have a Best Buy near you they usually have a speaker room with many different brands that you can listen to. Though that doesn't mean you have to buy them their. I'm partial to Polk audio though. Polk has excellent customer service. That's going to be a tough decision you should really do some research on the internet for cost to quality references. Good luck. I hope this gets you pointed in the right direction.

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.

The most likely problem is shorted output transistors. This is a straightfoward repair for any shop that works on audio gear. Expect a parts cost in the $40-$50 range.

Onkyo TX-SV434 "Protect" light

The protect mode is a built in safety message, indicating that theres a fault somewhere with-in the unit, and it wont let the unit come on fully or more damage will occour. This unit is a solid state device, and you should not attempt to use it or open it or try any self repair as it will cause more damage. If this unit is more then a few years old , it might just be the time to start looking around at all the back to school sales on electronics, as to have this unit serviced will cost an estimate fee as well as parts and labor. If you want to invest a few bucks into this machince , then go for it, but its most likly will cost 1/2 or more then the cost of the entire unit did when it was new to have it repaired. It is up to you. Good Luck
