Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

No sound through the speakers...


I bought HT-R508. I spent nearly two days to try to get the sound through speakers. I still couldn’t get a sound from my ps3.

Actually I tried nearly every solution that I could do and tried troubleshooting through the manual. But I think I am missing the point at DTS settings. I am able to see the picture from ps3 1080p with no trouble. I can hear the sound from my tv through amplifier aswell. But no sound from my speakers. Also my speakers are all correctly connected because I am able to listen to my I pod through the onkyo amplifier..

My connections are:


  1. hdmi cable from tv to onkyo hdmi out.
  2. hdmi cable from ps3 out to onkyo hdmi in 1
  3. digital optical cable from ps3 to onkyo digital optical in1 (i did this just incase also tried it with out aswell)


The dvd which plays in ps3 is DTS feature. I also did the sounds setting from the dvd menu to DTS 5.1 and also tried 5.1 doulby digital aswell.


I also did my auto microphone settings and didn’t have any problem.


I am looking forward to hear a advice from you,

Thank you vey much,

It may be the PS3
you have to select Optical Out 5.1 etc first.
That PS3 is not user friendly at all.

Onkyo ht r508 amp is not able to receive audio signal from ps3 through optical out

Have you assigned the optical input to the input you are attempting to use? Scroll through all inputs and you may find the sound is there. If not check the optical cable is working (red visible light) Also a big one is making sure in your ps3 settings that the setting for audio out is set to 'optical'

Check your owners manual.You will probably have to activate the sub woofer outlet,using the remote.This outlet can usually be programmed to do more than one function.

I have a older sanyo ds19390 tv that is buzzing inside, not thru speakers please help

In older tvs the buzzing sound usualy comes from the HT lead plugged into the tube .open the back and switch the tv on (do not touch anyware near the set the HT lead carries avery high voltage even when the set is off)if u do see arching then u need to clean around the rubber of the ht lead )u can leave the set unplugged for a couple of days to allow the tube to discharge before attempting to clean around it.

I can't get sound to my new speakers, I have tried everything possible. I have spent countless hours downloading drivers and trying to figure out why this isn't working. Please help

I lost control to my audio through the gain control of some program I didn't clear properly. I'm using Vista Home Premium. My machine came with Realtek High Definition Audio as well as a plain sound console console. Plus I downloaded a couple of non-Windows and other media programs. They may be set on "Mute" or low volume without being visible. As an aside(I didn't investigate further) I had occasion to go crazy for a while because I couldn' get rid of an audio feed from somewhere that turned out to be my "Google" gadget bar hidden off screen to the right with NASA broadcasting. Three days... The problem survived several rebootings. Maybe if you have something like that with the sound on "Mute"???

Cutting off and stayin in Stand by mode

To me it sounds like you might have blown a channel(s). The speakers that you are using with unit, did they come with it? If not you need to check the ohms of the speakers. It looks like the Onkyo HT-SR800 can only handle a minimum of 8 ohms. If your unit is under warranty definately send it in for repair

The rear speakers and the center channel speaker do not work

Hi, maybe,like my HT-THX25, my book states that sound will only be heard from the rear speakers when in DVD 5.1 or Dolby Pro Logic 11 mode, peronally I would love to hear sound from any of my speakers when TV is on lol. Geoff
