Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver

3 Answers

My son left my Onkyo 606 on for 2 days in DVD mode though the DVD player was off. I found the receiver to be very very hot esp since the cabinet door was closed. I am concerned whether this heating episode has damaged any internal part. How can I check if nothing is damaged or nothing will get damaged in the near future bcos of this heating episode? Thanks

    Since the receiver remained switched "on" for more than 48 hrs (display said DVD mode; though the DVD player was switched off), it was very very hot as if there was an oven inside it. Will the extreme heat have damaged some internal circuitry or electronic part?. Or will i see the problem after some days?. The receiver is less than a year old.

This receiver does throw off a LOT of heat when powered on, so please be certain you give it adequate cooling space or you'll see the "OVERLOAD" feature turn everything off to prevent damage, make sure there is nothing covering the heat vents on the top so it can breath, don't worry this device is protected by this overload and overheating feature so you can be confident no damage has been done to internals ok, your welcome

I am an onkyophile myself. There is almost no chance this caused any damage to your system. If everything is working properly then you don't have anything to worry about. Onkyo's are built very well. Normally you don't want to leave it on for that long of a time, but I have on mine several times and have had no problems. Only way to know is to use it crank up the tunes for a while. If everything is working as should then you have nothing to be concerned about. Thankfully you have an onkyo. If you need any other assistance please let me know.
Thank you for using fixya,

Hi...
I don't think if you switch on the player for so long will create any problem apart from heating.
You should keep the receiver on open so that the heat sink count pass the heat to the surrounding air.
Thanks

I have an Onkyo HT-S6100 home theater not sending picture to TV.


I just fixed mine with the same problem. Apparently, the HT-R667 and 606 receiver that comes with 6100 has a problem with the HDMI board. Onkyo wanted $500 dollars to fix it, costed me $16. Here's how to fix it. http://www.highdefforum.com/high-definition-receivers-recorders-players-tivos/121956-repairing-onkyo-htr667-aka-606-a.html

I cannot get video signal from my Samsung p1590 Blu Ray player via HDMI to pass through my Onkyo TX-SR606 AV Receiver. I get video if I connect Blu Ray player directly to TV, and have tried all HDMI ports...


I think this one is for the Onkyo wizards:

I would write them via email here:

However I did find this 2 page hookup manual with nice notes at link listed below that may help you solve the mystery:

(seems you may have to assign the digital input)

http://filedepot.onkyousa.com/Files/QuickHookup/TX-SR606_QSS_En_A.pdf?CFID=918117&CFTOKEN=40624545&jsessionid=f0306ea8a0d68bb60a49102e3e5510576756


Assigning the Digital Input
If there’s no sound, you’ll need to assign the digital inputs as
necessary using the setup menus on the TX-SR606’s display.
If you connect your DVD player to the AV receiver’s COAXIAL 1
DIGITAL IN, and your cable/satellite receiver to the COAXIAL 2
DIGITAL IN, as shown, it’s not necessary to assign the digital input.
The onscreen setup menus appear only on a TV that is
connected to the HDMI OUT. If your TV is connected to the composite video or S-Video MONITOR OUT, or the
COMPONENT VIDEO OUT, use the TX-SR606’s display when changing settings.

Thanks for using FixYa!

HDMI "blackout" issue


There is no "self fix" your receiver is HDMI version 1.1, 1.2, or 1.2a. Has a board problem from HDMI. It can be repaired and upgraded to version 1.3b which is the current format that seems to work in all scenerios. If your receiver is still under warranty the fix is N/C. If not, call Onkyo Customer support, alot of AV receivers pre 09' have this same issue and if you raise enough eyebrows, you may be able to get it done at N/C. I know it's not what you want to hear, but that's what's happening to alot of people! Hope this helps

Turns on, but nothing happens


HI...

If you bypass the 606 , do all the other units still work?
and, are there programmable setting inside the unit that might need a reset?

No audio sound from HDMI connection from TV to Onkyo 606 amp.


you have the output of the receiver going to the input of the TV?

i believe that you should be running the TV output to the receiver input to get your sound from the TV to the receiver and thus speakers.

the easiest setup is to just run your cable box and DVD player HDMI's into your TV inputs. then run another HDMI from the TV output to the receiver input.

Video thru Onkyo TX-RS606 is only black&white


are you using HDMI cables or component. First I would try unplugging the composite and component video cables while the receiver is off. Plug them back in and turn it back on. If that does'nt work try setting the receiver to factory default and redo the settings. You can find how to reset to default in your user manual.

Ps3 defaults to 576p when connected through onkyo 606 receiver


You have to tell the PS3 what the Okyo can do and it probably cannot do 1080P 60Hz (but can likely do 1080P 24Hz).  Try ticking more resolutions in the PS3s setup
