I have onkyo ds 989,how i can reset my ampli,tks

Hi Venobaaurora,

To do the reset you need to turn the receiver on then on the front panel of the receiver press and hold the "VIDEO1" button while doing that press the "POWER" button. You will see the word "Clear" in the display screen and the receiver is reset back to factory default settings. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR AUDIO & VIDEO ASSIGNMENTS ON THE RECEIVER PLUS YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR SPEAKER CONFIGURATIONS, SPEAKER DISTANCE AND ALL LEVEL CALIBRATION SETTINGS. YOU WILL ALSO LOSE ANY PROGRAMMED RADIO STATIONS IN MEMORY. Once the receiver is reset you will need to go thru the setup menu for all custom settings, Thanks, JT

RE: OnKYO CR-305TX CD RECEIVER Why do the "saved"

There shouldn't be a battery inside but a super capacitor that is supposed to keep the station memory...may be the capacitor is should be located on the tuner/radio board and may have a high value such as .47Farads at 5 may need a tech to replace if you have no working knowledge of circuits , but if you do , you should be able to obtain one at radio shack...they sometimes call these capacitors memory backup capacitors

Just purchased a Panasonic DMT-350 with analog 7.1 out and hooked up to my Onkyo 989 but tried everything and i mean everything to get my rear surround to play but no luck....pleeeeeease help me.


Connect the Panasonic to one of the AV inputs on the Onkyo. Use red white and yellow AV cables. Connect the output from the Panasonic to one of the five AV video inputs on the Onkyo (or use the DVD dedicated input in the Onkyo backpanel). I indicated this option using red arrows. You can use any of the AV inputs or the DVD input at the bottom. Just ensure you do not connect to an output at the back of the Onkyo.

Alternatively use component cables and optical audio input, as indicated using the blue arrows in picture below. Select source and listen surround from the Onkyo.

There are more options. In some case you may decide to connect the DVD video output to TV and the audio to the Onkyo.

Here a manual for the TX DS989.

Here the backpanel:

No sound or video form Onkyo 989 after power surge

There are several types of surge protectors used in most all consumer electronics, only the very low end as exceptions.
They generally will protect against the occasional pike coming from the AC line and not show any signs of failure. In the case of a lightning induced spike they will fail completely and either force the blowing of a fuse or interrupt the AC path.
None of these things are absolute in their protection but are not expensive to replace. You have to expect though, that they did not fail quickly enough to protect the circuitry downstream from them and that their replacement may not give you a working unit again.
About any competent tech can give you an assessment of the chances for a successful repair. In other words, an expert should examine it and will probably charge something for the estimate since finding all the problems is about 80% of the work involved; the other 20% in the replacement of failed parts.

Onkyo TX-SR500 loosing settings

Turning any receiver off will erase the settings - there is no backup battery (Onkyo uses Battery Free Memory Backup) and the length of time depends on the capacitor charge. Why not just leave the receiver plugged in? Stand-by mode uses a negligible amount of power - enough to keep the capacitors charged and the LED on the front panel on.
