Problem occurs when using STRDG520 in 5.1 channel mode
Recently I bought a STRDG520 AV receiver. I am facing a noise problem when I use the system with 5 speakers enabled. Initially when I switch on the system and will get a very good effect from all the speakers but after 3 to 4 minutes I can hear the noise from the speakers which gradually increases and makes the sound very distorting and will be not able to hear any conversation / background music and will be only noise. Plz advice me what would have happend.

Assuming that you mean Dolby digital 5.1, confirm that you have a center channel properly connected and perform the following;
Using the remote, enter the menu on the receiver and navigate to the selection labeled "LEVEL." Toggle through the selections until you reach the "CENTER CHANNEL". You will be able to use the remote to increase the volume of that channel in .5dB increments.
A good universal remote to use with that monitor is the RCA RCRN04GR, available at WalMart. I recently bought a 25" GE Remote Monitor XS Stereo from a Days Inn that was replacing all of those monitors with Flat Screen TV's. When I got it home I found that it would not go to channel 4 which was default with my COX Digital Cable Box. Channel 3 is the default channel on the monitor, so I ran an AV cable from the cable box, disconected the coax and hooked up the AV cable to the back of the TV and that solved the problem. I hope that answer was helpful.
If you can’t resolve the issue yourself, try resetting
the AV receiver before contacting your Onkyo dealer.
To reset the AV receiver to its factory defaults,
turn it on and, while holding down the [VCR/DVR]
button, press the [ON/STANDBY] button. “Clear”
will appear on the display and the AV receiver will
enter Standby mode.
Note that resetting the AV receiver will delete your
radio presets and custom settings.
had the same problem with a friend's 5560. it was a resistor on the rear center channel board, which is mounted right behind the middle of the heat sink. unhook the two ribbon type cables running to it from the board.
everything will work, except the rear center channel speaker. my friend never used the rear center channel anyway. in the meantime, he bought a new receiver, so i have an extra one for my workout room. woohoo. hope this helps.
Hi Zanthena - my Yamaha rx v 2200 is doing exactly the same thing - did you manage to track the problem down? I have had my unit in for repair and the fault occurred again 6 hours after I re-installed it.
Have you bought a universal remote for the tv? That is what we had to do to get to av mode and when you do make sure you try the input button before settling with the first code that works. We stopped at the first code that changed the channels and still could not get into av mode. Finally I tried the rest of the codes and found the correct one. HOPE THIS HELPS
