this could be the pre amp transistor or the power amp that needs replacing
the pre amp transistor is cheap but the power amp is not
if you did not crank it , then it is probably just the transistor that needs replacing

SOURCE: No sound from Left and Right front speakers

You didn't state it but I assume the other channels are functional?
The auxilliary channels are generally lower power and may even be serviced by a different voltage than the main amps. If it is so designed, you may have something as simple as a blown fuse for the main amp supply.
If the aux. channels are equal in power, the power supply may still be dividing the load so a fuse still could be at fault. The unit could also use integrated power amplifiers in which case, if two channels are operating from a single module it could be a module failure.
I don't see much chance of anyone repairing this system without examining it in the first person.

SOURCE: Onkyo TX-DS989 not staying on

This sounds like the action of some protection circuit that is monitoring some condition or voltage that isn't within its design limits. If it was mine, I'd look for an Onkyo forum to see if others have experienced the same problem.

SOURCE: Powered Or Unpowered Subwoofers For Onkyo TX-8511

Greg- Powered subs are better than non-powered subs (also known as passive subs), anyway I see the TX-8511 has no sub pre-out on the back panel, so you need to decide what sub you will use and run from the receivers left and right speakers output into a subwoofers speaker in from speakers then back out to speakers, look at the back of a subwoofer and you will see like 4 sets of speaker hookups 2 in and 2 out, what this does is takes the low end or bass and drops the signal to the subwoofer then takes the mids and highs out to your left and right speakers, unless your regular left and right stereo speakers have large woofers a sub is the way to go.

I have a Onkyo TX-DS989, I have my xbox connected to it but only the red and white wires, my question is I have an optical cable that I wish to connect to it. i know where it goes but I get no audio....


You have to assign any digital audio inputs and that requires a functioning controller.

Zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site (or look at your own) and get the actual remote model number.

or check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remotes", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

TX-8211 FM Stereo/AM Receiver Display changes to PROTECT & shuts the power


Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

I am playing Cd's and have a pair of Definitive Technology- Model BP-10 tower speakers connected to my Technics SA-DX1040 5.1 Channels Receiver and while the music is playing, all of a sudden the music...


There are 2 major possibilities and since you didn't say if the sound comes back here's the general split.
1. The power amp section could be having problems and/or protection circuits are kicking in. In this case repair of the amp will be needed.
2. There is a bad connection somewhere making the audio path go bad. In this case a good can of contact cleaner applied to all switches and controls may help. If not, the bad connection may be internal. If tapping (or rapping) on the unit makes it come back, there's probably a bad internal connection.
If letting the unit cool down brings back the sound, its the power amp section.

Onkyo rx-ds989 no sound from speakers


With the initial price of this being as high as it is, it is probably worth saving.
If you haven't checked all outputs, I would advise doing so since that would help localize a potential point of failure.
If NO outputs are still alive, it may be a failure of the main power supply of the unit; if this is the case, the repair may not be that costly.
If some outputs are still active, it could still be a power supply failure since it is probably not servicing all channels from a single supply. Alternatively, it may be a failed output module with two channels in a shared housing.
