Question about Onkyo TX-8511 Receiver

2 Answers

No sound/can't get rid of "video 1" or "video 2"

All of a sudden, the dispay shows the small "video 1" or "video 2" (if I hit the video 2 button). This is no matter whether I push CD or FM. The larger dispay shows CD or FM, but above that is the little "video" sign.
And, worst of all, no sound!
What have I done wrong? I've had this unit for years with no problem.
Can anyone help?

I had the same issue... It turns out that there is light on the screen under the A and B speaker lights which said T-2 Monitor. This meant it was sending the sound out to the tape # 2 monitor... Hit the Tape 2 button and you are back in business...

My system is the same way, you can toggle between video 1 and video 2, but you can't turn them both off, not sure about the no sound, but it has nothing to do with that.

How do I connect Pioneer equalizer SG9500 to a Sony STR-K740P and Sony CD DVP NC600?


Equalizers can be hooked up two stereos a few different ways. If your receiver or amplifier has what's called a processor loop that is where you would connect the output of the processor to the input of the DEQ and then the output of the processor loop to the input of the Eq. This would be visible on the back as for RCA jacks either with a selector switch above to determine whether you want to use the loop or not or jumpers that go from one of the RCA's into the other input to output for when you're not using that loop. The other way would be to connect it to the input and output for a cassette deck you would hook it up the same way however that would depend on whether your receiver has a separate tape monitor button. If your receiver let's say is In FM mode and you press tape and it still shows FM on but an indicator for tape Mon comes on as well then it will work OK. But, if you must switch off of FM to put on the tape Mon. You prob won't be able to use an eq with that receiver. Then your only other option would be to put the eq between a source such as CD....etc and the input for that source barring phono.

The receiver is muted when playing in tuner or cd the volume is not coming through the speakers. We can hear it muted when turning up to max its very low. Lost instruction manual can you help. I think my...


I can't find a manual either. Can I assume you really mean the sound is muted for EVERY source, not just tuner and CD?

I'd guess it's either MUTED or a Tape Monitor is active. Turn the volume down, select FM as the source, tune a station and use it as your test source. Look around for indicators that give a clue.

NEVER troubleshoot anything with the volume control turned way up. You'll blow up or damage the speakers and your hearing right after you discover and correct the misplaced control.

CD DRAWER DOESNT OPEN


Is there a small hole on the front of the load tray? If there is use a straightened out paperclip to push into the hole to remove the stuck cd. That might help you out.

See add details


Since the receiver eventually works, the delay circuit is failing. This is a circuit that allows the power supply to settle down before kicking in the output relay. This prevents the "pop" that was sometimes heard on older units. This should be a simple and inexpensive repair probably requiring the replacement of a couple of small capacitors in that delay/protection circuit.

Slight bump, no sound


The problem's fixed, and it was actually a very simple matter. When I bumped the receiver against the shelf (and the carpet) I must have hit the 'Speaker A' button on the front panel, causing the speakers to be de-selected and hence no sound to be heard. I realized this was the problem when I unplugged the speakers and tried them in the Speaker B slots and they worked. Then I put them back in the A section and pushed the button and voila - fixed!

1995 V.W PASSAT


Hi,

If I understand your post right, you have the code but need the procedure on how to input/enter it into the radio. To my understanding, a 1995 Volkswagen Passat would have a non-BOSE unit with or without CD changer controls. It was a premium sound system with anti-theft coding.

Pls try:
1. Power the radio ON till "SAFE" is displayed;
2. Press the AM/FM and SCAN buttons simultaneously till display shows "1000". (In some versions, it is the seek and the two scan buttons);
3. Release the AM/FM and SCAN buttons;
4. Enter your security code using the first four station buttons on the radio;
5. The first button changes the first number of the four digit code;
6. The second button changes the second number and so on and so forth;
7. Once the proper code has been entered press the AM/FM and SCAN buttons at the same time and hold until the radio accepts the code;
8. You have two tries before the system will lock you out for an hour;
9. Should you happen to have a three digit code, pls make the first digit a zero;
10. The first digit can only be 1 or 0 (the 0 will not show up so for a zero, push the button until the 1 disappears).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
