Sounds like the old stuck button thing after a move??? What i mean it go over all the push buttons and maybe you will find one that is not pushing in and returning??? If alls ok then you should check the obvious like bent shafts or balance controls ect. ay have jogged something inside and you will need to see a pro to assit you unless you know how to trouble shoot solid state electronics?? These units have no real serviceable parts inside. Check with your owners manual for the sevicer nearest you. If they are not listed call the service # or try 1-800-289-AIWA . good luck

there isn't such a button on the reciever... at least if there is, it's not obvious. Where would such a button be. There is a small red LED light that comes on when dolby digital is working. That's about it. There is no mention of THX anywhere on the receiver

Check the speaker wire. Sometimes it can just be loose in the terminals and cause distortion. I have had the problem before.

I have the same reciever, and had the same problem. Contact Onkyo, this is a known issue where defective DSP chips were used and manifest problems with a popping / clicking sound when using surround settings. These receivers also have a Dolby Digital input issue that can cause audio dropouts when watching cable or SAT broadcasts that encode DD using a 'newer' broadcast encoding methods. Onkyo is covering the cost of that repair for me now, even though the receiver is 5 years old now....
