Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver

1 Answer

Onkyo receiver fried after hooking up to pc

I attempted to connect my TXSR606 receiver to my pc in order to listen to pandora and my itunes library. I used the green out on the back of my pc (where my computer speakers were plugged in). Basically a mini headphone jack to red and white rca cables. I plugged the rca cables into the tape "in". The receiver smoked and then sparked before I yanked out the rca cables. Now the receiver will only stay on for a few seconds before it shuts off. I've talked to several people who have their receivers hooked up to their pc's exactly in this fashion without any problem. HELP. Any ideas?

I am not used to count colors or numbers on wires, but what you did is that you created an oscillator, by hooking up the output of the receiver and ran it through your computer which inverted the phase, so the thing oscillated and committed suicide. Onkyo used to make some good impact printers, before the modern inkjet came around. If your unit is within warranty, don't hesitate to go where you bought it and ask them to re-imburse you. Receivers don't blow up just like that, because someone hook a wire wrong. One of the specifications is to check just that: phase reversal and oscillations...

  • Check your cable connections
  • set the input selector to the proper component sources your using.
  • set your speaker settings to either 5.1 or 7.1, according to your speaker configuration via Onkyo's AccuEQ automatic setup tool- because the same binding posts can be used for hooking up the Atmos height or surround back speakers; you'll need to tell the Onkyo system which setup you're using.

Yes it is possible. Any audio device with an earphone out jack can be connected to a receiver by using the CD input or the AUX input jacks (white and red) on the receiver. All you need is an adapter cable with the stereo 3.5mm plug on the iPhone side and the 2 RCA connectors on the receiver side. You can get these for $2 or so at Amazon.com or at Radio Shack. Adjust the volume and select on the receiver, the input you used to connect and enjoy.

See above link for one example of the cable.

Trying to connect cable box....


You should be able to pick any open audio device unless it says pre-amp only. If your manual shows a connection for a CD player or similar device it should support the cable box.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa

Zone 2 sound


actually, the zone 2 for onkyo receivers are built to only react to analog sources so if a device is hooked up using digital cables, the zone 2 will not pick it up. if you want to listen to a source in zone 2, you would have to hook up a red and white RCA cable.
