Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have an Onkyo RT-R390 Receiver that will not turn on. It just makes a load clicking sound when plugged in.

This occurred as a result of a power surge that happened when an electrical contractor was transferring wires to a new telephone pole.

The sound is the AC input protection relay kicking out due to a high input current surge when the unit is turned on. The work on the lines outside killed your amp. Homeowner insurance usually covers this type of damage less deductible. Call, its free. Contractors lifted your ground reference or live phase before turning off your panel.

SOURCE: Onkyo TX-SR 606 KEEPS CLICKING INSTEAD OF TURNING ON WHEN POWERED

Here are your options:

1. An electrical problem, where your receiver has a grounding problem.
2. Your speaker wire connections are actually touching each other and that's why your receiver is not turning on.

SOURCE: Kenwood Receiver KR-a5020 receiver won't come out of standby

The unit is in what is commonly known as "protect" mode. This means that a problem has been detected in the final output stage of the amp and the outputs are shutdown to prevent further damage to either the receiver or speakers. This should not be a difficult repair for a service shop. Expect a parts cost in the $25-$40 range. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost.

SOURCE: new home theater setup- no signal at tv using onkyo tx=sr605

This might somewhat help. Today I went back .. I went HDMI out of the Cable box and DVD player into 2 of the TVs HDMI ins. The digital audio out from each, straight to the receiver and things are working ok. All speakers are working OK. Sound isnt as loud or crisp but unfortunately I found no other solution.

I have a onkyo ht -R390 ,when we watch there is no sounds


Since you have a receiver, I'll assume you are listening through speakers connected to the receiver. You'll need to configure the TV input port on the receiver to get audio from the correct source. This could be the HDMI cable from your cable box or it could be from an audio input that is coming from your TV. Please provide more information on your exact setup that you're trying to hear.

Receiver will not turn on and is making a clicking sound TX-NR 609


This is the same problem i've had with my POS nr609. I will never buy Onkyo again.. Everyone warned me about the poor quality.. This thing worked for a year and a half, blew the amp., replaced and now another year and a half, f'd again. Save your time, buy a Denon or a Harmon Kardon. Better quality, same features..

Onkyo HT-RC360 The receiver has a clicking sound when powered on. then turns off


No! I'am afraid not, if you have checked your wires carefully and it checked, the audio output semiconductors will require a technician to remedy the problem.

I have the TX SR706 receiver for two years and yesterday when I turn it on it did a load boom sound and since then there are no sound


I had this happen to my unit shortly after I purchased it. When I turned the receiver on there was a loud pop through the speakers, the red light on the front started blinking and the unit failed to produce sound.

A tack worked its way through one of the speaker wires, causing a short. I replaced the wire and unplugged the receiver for an hour. It's worked well for the past two years since this issue.

If you haven't done so already, check all of your speaker wires and plugs on the receiver and the speakers. You may have a damaged wire or metal-on-metal contact somewhere. Try these steps:

1. Unplug the unit and disconnect all wires and connections. Let the unit sit for an hour.

2. Check all cords for damage or crossed connections.

3. Reconnect the power cord and set the volume to minimum. Turn the receiver on. If it stays on, shut it off, unplug it and reconnect everything, taking care to ensure that speaker wires and/or plugs don't make contact.

4. Plug the receiver in, set the volume to minimum (it should already have this setting after step 3) and turn it on.

It sounds like there is a short somewhere in either the wiring or the receiver. This caused the popping noise and activated the receiver's protection circuit. If it's a damaged wire or plugs or wires making contact, you can reset the unit with the directions above, replace or separate the wires and all should work. If the issue is within the unit, you'll have to contact Onkyo directly.

Onkyo TX-8011 stereo receiver only rt. channel works barely.


First of all verify that there is no need for a "shorting plug" on the back of the receiver. Look for Pre-amp IN and Amp-IN RCa jacks. These may need to be connected. Also verify that the tape monitor switch has not been engaged. This too will result in only hearing crosstalk when the volume is all the way up. Update this with your results and we'll continue from there if the problem remains.

Thanks,

Echo when connecting Samsung Plasma to Onkyo TX-SR602


Make sure you have the tv volume turned right down as this will cause an echo,also set amp to prologic 2, and set up xover to suit your speakers or go for the THX standard of 80 hrtz and as a rule of thumb set front L,C,R speakers to zero rears to about +4or5 and your sub to -5[ dont know which speakers you have but try setting the subs on board volume to the 10,o,cloak position],also make sure the speakers -,+ are wired the same at the amp and speakers.

Hope this helps.

My Onkyo Receiver TX 601 is turning itself off


Several things can cause this: Loud signal passages can momentarily draw high currents at the mains, especially if you have unit plugged into power stripe with other equipment. Or if unit is plugged into isolation transformer, current draw may exceed output of transformer. Too many speakers hooked to output or if one is bad (partially shorted due to overheating)

Problems with Onkyo DR-S2.2


sounds like you have uneven flow of electricity. Try to plug the receiver in its own power socket

also make sure it has plenty of clearance for airflow b/c the receiver is shutting down to stop further damage of the receiver either b/c of heat or power surges.

good luck
