Onkyo TX-SV525 on and off

I have had this Onkyo TX-SV525 home theater system since new, recently the system when turned on, would turn on and off repeatedly by itself. I shielded the front of the system to determine if there was a outside signal turning it off and on; however, it continued to do so. It does not remain on long enough for there to be any sound, it just clicks on and off repeatedly. Is there a fix for this? or should I shoe horn my wallet open and buy a new one?

Re: Onkyo TX-SV525 on and off

Look under the wide ribbon cable going to the front panel. There is a cluster of components on the main board that make 12V and 6V power for different things. There is a pair of 12 ohm and a 1 ohm resistor. These run very hot and over time will take out the motherboard underneath. If these resistors disconnect the unit will cycle on and off rapidly. I found this out when I was replacing the resistors and repairing the circuit board.

Where are the fuses located in onkyontx-sv525- only found 1 at power in

If you pulled the cover and only see one fuse, and if it is not blown, then you need to search deeper for the problem. All replaceable fuses on the main board are viewable.

My tx-sv525 is turning its self on and off when ever i plug it in no matter if it has speakers hooked up or not. i have tried every speaker setup i can think of. whats the next step?

Speakers have nothing to do with spontaneous power ON. It either has a severe and dangerous internal power circuitry issue or it's sensing a remote control command to turn power on and off. Block thereceiver so it can't possibly see any external controllers and see if that stops it.

I have an onkyo TX-SV515 PRO receiver and the remote speakers will not turn on. The main speakers work fine but when I depress the button to turn on the remote speakers they do not switch on.

I had the same problem. You must turn on the remote speakers via the reciever and then adjust the remote speaker volume control that is only located on the remote control. The volume buttons are on the top right of the remote. It is briefly discussed in the owners manual which can be downloaded online.<!-- from fixya rte -->

Onkyo TX-SV525 Receiver subwoofer pre out no sound

Yes turing on the "A" speaker is required for the Onkyo, but that only turns on the 2 front speakers in the "A" speaker jacks.

You may also need to check and see if the Onkyo has a menu selection in the setup menu that will turn on the sub woofer output on the back of the receiver.

I have seen on countless occasions where people just have a hard time finding that sub woofer option on their receiver.

I do not have the manuals for this Onkyo, so I can not tell you the exact way to find it.

I have been repairing surround receivers since they have been on the market and beleive me, you are not alone in this situation.

Sometimes it seems like you need a Phd. in programming or something similar just to firgure out how to set one of these up.

The solution should be in your owners manual, with the problem then being, just where in the manual. Go slowly thru it paying the closest attention to anything about set up procedures.

I have also seen at times where the setup for the sub-woofer is not listed as sub-woofer, but as "LFE" (low frequency effect) . So keep your eyes open for that.

something else, your sub woofer may have an auto turn on. That means it will only turn on if it detects an input signal. Make sure yo uhave the volume up enough on the receiver to trigger that auto turn on if yours has one.

I would like to have been more help, but without the manuals I can only give you general type thngs to look for. These type of receivers are all so different and all so complicated to operate. The days of just turning on a stereo, selecting your source and turning up the volume seem to be over.

Let me know if you need any more assistance from me.


p.s. Very nice system you have, when you get the Kef working I think you are going to just love this system. and Onkyo has the best quality receivers in their price range.
