Question about Onkyo TX-DS696 Receiver

Open Question

Rear left surround not always working

The left rear surround channel of my Onkyo 696 sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. If I run the audio test, and it's not working, sometimes by increasing the volume on that channel I can get it to kick in and work, or I might get it to kick in if I turn it off and then turn it back on. I've also had this problem with the front right speaker, but not nearly as frequently as the left rear one. Someone mentioned cleaning the contacts, but I'm not sure if they meant the external speaker contacts or some internal ones. I have no problem opening the receiver up and doing some work if it would clear up the problem whatever it might be. So thanks to anyone who might have a solution to this problem... Sincerely, soinie.

SOURCE: Left rear surround channel sometimes doesn't work

If your receiver has speaker protection relays and they are intermittent due to bad contacts you might be able to repair them if they are not sealed. Most are but take a shot. They make small files for this purpose. Replacing them can be daunting because yo may not have good access. Tap the relay with the receiver playing and see if it helps.

No surround sound on rear speakers and cant access speaker set up functions. left front channel not working when rears set up without surround


from the problem description, it sounds like a wiring/setup problem with the speakers. check to make sure you are only using the main 'a' front r & l speaker connectors. if you select speaker set a + b on the front, you will not have the rear channels. please see the speaker connection guidelines in the manual on page 13-15. make sure the audessey mike and/or headphones are not plugged in when trying to use the speaker set up function.

Very dull sound from the 4 rear spekers on my 7.1 set up for the ONKYO 802. This happens for the satellite input for tv channels, is this normal that I will only get surround sound via a disc or other...


Your basic setup through the Onkyo establishes the base levels of each speaker channel with test tones. The tones should also sound pretty much the same from speaker to speaker.

How a given surround mode works with a given input would be documented in the manual. Even stereo sources can be proecessed into some form of 7-speaker output.

"ONKYO 802" is not unique. Are there letters?

7.1 would have Surround Back L and R.

6.1 would have just one back there (SB). It defaults to the Left output on the Pre-Outs if you ever go that route.

This being a 6.1 receiver it does not support two SB channels BUT you can configure those amp channels for a separate Zone supporting 2 speakers. Confused?

The manual shows a single SB speaker connected to the left side on Page 27. THAT would be consistent with a 6.1 configuration.

Onkyo HT S3300 center, left front and rear speaker not working.


check your speaker wiring, make sure both terminals are connected properly. or could just be left speaker is disconnected. and is set in stereo mode which will only play left and right front and Sub, if you have one. try chaning the surround mode to play in multi channel speaker which will send sound to all speakers. i trust your using a Digital audio cable from your source ( cable box, DVD player) if your using analog audio cable you will only get stereo sound, and nothing will ever come out of the rear speaker unless you change the surround mode to multi- channel speaker. also in the setup menu you should be able to perform a speaker setup, make sure all your speakers are able to produce sound. follow speaker setup mode in menu, make sure you have checked the boxes or Yes to speaker you have in your system. then perform calibration and a test tone will come out of each speaker as you select them.

Onkyo TX-DS 595 receiver surround channel unrealiable


How you power off the amp won't hurt it generally. I used to fix ONKYO amps under warranty, and I can tell you now, it will be full of dry solder joints. Take you unit to your local repairer, and they will resolder all the offending PCB's inside. This type of repair will fix 99% of strange audio noises and cutting in and out etc. for ONKYO recievers. Otherwise this is quite a good product.

Speaker Detect error Left Rear


Hey there.

I had the same problem until i figured out that if u dont have surround speakers connected it will be a error when trying to configure the rear surround speakers.

So if u are running a 5.1 system and have hooked up ur surround speakers to the back surround speaker port u have to change them to the surround speaker port.

Hope this work for u

TX-DS575 reverts back to standby mode when turned on


You can find it out by yourself. I have the same device; therefore, I know that this device has a "test" function. Just unplug rear (surround) speakers at first, then test the rest of the speakers if the amp lets you do it. Hook up one of the rear speakers you regularly use to rear left or to rear right in order to test each rear channel. If one of them turns off the amp, you'll be able to understand which side feeding resistor does not work. However, if the amp goes to standby mode as soon as you hook up one of those speakers, you can alternatively invert the relevant rear speaker's input ports for a while. (+ to -, - to +) Don't forget that you have to hook up the other rear likewise. This will allow you to cheat your amp for a while, and let you test your channels without taking care of ohms.
