Question about Onkyo TX-DS474 Receiver

1 Answer

TX-DS474 settings clear when power is switched off

Hi, my system works great, only issue i have is when i switch off the main Power (Not standby) all my settings like speaker distance, speaker gain level, FM presets, speaker selection, subwoofer ON/OFF selection, and volume resets to -40db (default), if i set all the parameters and just use the standby then i dont loose any of my settings, not sure why this happens, in computer world we have a small battery to keep the BIOS setting alive, and this happens when the battery is fault or removed, is there anything in the receiver which can be done to fix this issue, pleeeeease help guide to fix the problem.

Thanks
Ganesh

That's what the standby button is for. The "master power" button should only be turned off if you are going to be out of town for months at a time. If you use a good surge protection unit like monster or panamax, there is no reason to turn off the master power. It only draws about 200milliamps of current to keep its memory. About as much as a clock radio when its off. Hope this helps

    i never turn the main power off, but my receiver "loses" its channel level settings every time i put it into standby. But it only loses some of them. Both front speakers stay at 5 and the center and surrounds go to 0. I really need both of those near 10. I guess I can leave it on, but I'd rather not. Any ideas?

Stuck in standby


You can reset all to factory settings, which may help; unplug power, put back in switch on with power button. Then press together "tape", "CD" and the power button. You may need to reset the clock before it will work. If you need the manual, here is the link; http://pdf.crse.com/manuals/2048589112.pdf check page 26 for the reset if not clear - nothing else in there that seems to be related, but you may find something i missed. Hope this helps :)

I see so many here with no sound/no picture issues:

ISSUES:

1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signs of damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down the problem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the generic ones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don't put a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses a standby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined and some not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on the power/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--I attach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flat and have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating (saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs 7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have to buy and try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over. If set is opened at least look for puffed up and bad caps like in this photo. 11_6_2012_3_22_05_pm.jpg

Look for puffed up caps like these in the power supply board.

Front buttons won't work


The microprocessor may be locked up. While pressing and holding "video 1", press "speaker A". When "clear" appears in the display, the micro has been reset to the factory default condition. To do a full reset without taking it apart, it may have to sit up to 3 weeks for the backup battery to run down.

Re: ONKYO with New LCD HI Def Television


Hi Lucylu

I don't have a solution to your problem -- but I do have the receiver and want to hook up my Plasma TV through the ONKYO TX-DS474 receiver. Its a great receiver but am not sure it will "do the job" being so old in the tooth.

Hope you found a solution!!
