Question about Onkyo HT-SR700 System

1 Answer

Onkyo HT-R520 First off, I did not know that the 520 was the same as the HT-SR700 system. Is this true? Now for the question. When I am playing a DVD or listening to the TV through the system, the background sound over rides the conversation and you really cannot understand what people are saying unless you turn it up to high volumes. Even then there is trouble. This really inhibits my use of it. I have to switch back to the TV mode of listening.Help

Hello the HT-R520 is the model of the receiver that is part of the HT-S770 package. I suggest that you check the speaker settings. Check the level of the center speaker. If you need assistance please contact Onkyo at 800-229-1687 option #3. Thank you, Onkyo USA

Please remove speaker wires from receiver and turn it ON, if receiver still goes to standby that means it got problem in amplifier output section and protection circuit gets activate to turn it off.
If removing speakers solve turn-off problem that shows any of speaker is bad, connect speakers one by one to find out what speaker causing protection circuit activation.
And if receiver has problem with internal circuit, a tech would be fine to diagnose that kind of problem because it is not user level repair as it requires testing voltages in output circuit of receiver and also requires soldering work to replace defective parts.

Onkyo ht-r500 no speakers attached goes directly into protect mode, standby light blinking..

I have a HT-R520 - First thing stated in the manual is 'Do Not Apply Power to the System Until All the Speakers Are Connected to the Receiver.' This practice avoids any hot connects to the speakers. As with any high-outpiut system connecting spreaker wires to the system while in operation can spike the speakers as well as the amplifier curcuits. Hook up your speakers first and give it a try. Good Luck!

Harmony 880 does not change input with Onkyo HT-R520 amplifier

You will either have to use your Onkyo remote to teach the Harmony those functions or try one of the similar model receivers in the Harmony software. I had to chose a similar DVD player in the list in order to get my Harmony to play nice with my DVD player.

Onkyo HT R520 Home Theatre receiver/amplifier

I had the same problem too. All functions seemed operational but I could not get any sound out of my unit. I took my HT-R520 (4yr Old) to the Onkyo Service center in Denver Colorado (DTS). I paid out $50.00 to have them diagnois the problem. I was hoping that they would listen to me and the info I found via fixya user jaf323 and fix the problem for $50.00. Not....they ignored me. They told me it was my power supply and it would be $250.00 to fix the problem. Sooo, I decided investigate the problem myself. After finding an Okyo schematic free online for the 600 model which is similiar to the HT-R520, I was able to find the L7002 coil. I took my DVM to all of the coils I could get to labled 2R2 on the large horizontal PWA on the right side of the unit as you look at the front panel and sure enough, the L7002 coil was "open". All of the other coils (approx 4) showed a resistance of about 0.3MOhm. I pulled off the bad coil and swapped it out with same coil marked 2R2 from the headphone PWA using a tweezer soldering iron. I am a novice when it comes to electronics. This was a simple fix. BTW the little coils are about 1/8" x1/8" - little guys.
