Question about Onkyo TX-SR304 Receiver

1 Answer

Reciever malfunctions after 30 mins use

After about 30 minutes of use, the speakers begin to get very scratchy and fuzzy, and create high pitched noises. Also, the display on the receiver will begin to show garbled random numbers and letters (the volume will increase and decrease, but the digital display will show garbage data). Any advice? Thanks in advance!

This receiver runs VERY hot during normal operation. Make sure you provide good ventilation for it.

With summer here, you might consider a small clip-on fan and clip it near the top of the receiver. The amplifier section is along the front of the chassis - so that's the source of heat.

See if unblocking it helps - then try the fan.

High pitch noise

Hello there, You have to specify where the noise is coming from. Is it coming from the speaker or from the back of the unit. SMPS power supply powering your unit create this kind of noise when some capacitor gone out of their value.

Good Luck.
