Question about Onkyo TX-DS575 Receiver

Speaker volume settings

I have had this receiver for years and have noticed that I have to reset the speaker settings for volume evertime I power off and power on.  It maintains the receiver volume settings and all other settings, but the invidivual channel settings for each speaker are not saved.  I believe I am doing something wrong and its probably not the receiver. I can not find my manual so any suggestions would be great, thanks.

Re: Speaker volume settings

I figured out the problem.  After you set the individual channel volume for each speaker you need to push the test button on the remote and this will lock in the settings.  Thanks.

ONKYO TX-SR307. Problem with volume/sound getting lower. "Setup" does not alter / resolve the issue. Please help

Hi, if this has not been resolved please try the following reset:

To do the reset you need to turn the receiver on, then on the front panel of the receiver press and hold the "VCR/DVR" button while doing that press the "STANDBY/ON" button. You will see the word "Clear" in the display screen and the receiver will go into standby mode. 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 goes into standby mode turn it back on and go thru the setup menu for all custom settings, Thanks, JT

No sound and light on input selector knob is Flashing. Light only flashes when speaker switch has been turned to A, B or A&B.

This can happen if there's a dead short in a speaker wire or if you're using very low impedance loudspeakers at high volume for an extended length of time. If the protection light came on due to a speaker wire short, low impedance condition or a bad speaker, the receiver's power will need to be turned off to reset it. Before turning the power back on, all speaker wire connections should be checked for their integrity at the receiver side and at the speaker side. If the protection light goes on immediately after you turn on the receiver, disconnect the speaker wires at the receiver side and retest. If the receiver's protection light goes off, then there would still seem to be a problem with one channel's speaker wires or speakers. Connecting them one by one and retesting should allow you to find the problem speaker or connection.

What is the best speaker volume settings for 5.1 system my receiver is Yamaha rx-v430 and room size is 15x20

As this receiver does not have automatic speaker calibration, you need to set the volumes manually. The best is if the left and right speakers are at the same distance from you (then their volumes can be equal). If one speaker is at more distance than the other, the volume must be higher for this speaker.
You can find instruction for volume setting at p. 21 of your receiver manual. There you can also find settings of the speaker mode - that depends on the specific speakers you have. You can define for each of 5 speakers if they are Large/Small/None (on this setting depends where will be the lowest bass tones directed).

My RX-V765 has been working fine for over a year... not a problem one. Now, over the last couple of weeks, the receiver will turn OFF just a couple of seconds after turning on. Powers up, display comes on,...

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

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.

Harman Kardon AVR 500: randomly accelerates volume levels.

The problem is with the actual eltromechanical element on the volume control, my avr 300 does this as well and I'll let you know the secret to avoiding it. There are small indents on the volume control as you turn it, if you leave it half way between indents, it will periodically start reading volume changes, if you're lucky it will go down, if you're unlucky by the time you've noticed it act up your speakers are blown. When you change the volume, make sure the control rests in an indent and the problem will never crop up again. A simple solution if you're the only one that uses the receiver.

One speaker is lower volume than others - right front

I think that maybe you setted the distance of the speakers wrong. Check your users manual and try to adjust the distance.
