Onkyo TX-SR802 sound stopped working

I have a question, my receiver stopped working, I left my house in the morning when I came back in the afternoon it was still on, when I tried to play a DVD there was no sound, I turned on the DVD and the reciever did pick up any sound(optical), I checked my computer that was connected to V3 and no sound either, checked the PS2 that was connected to V2 and nothing, tried the sound test and nothing, tried changing A-B channels and even radio and nothing at all.the lights are on but I can't hear anything and it doesn’t seem to pick the optical cable from the DVD. I checked the cables in the back and nothing, headphones dont work either. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Subtitle Problem: Onkyo TX-sr605

The only remote that will definitely turn the sat subtitles on/off is the sat remote. The other subtitle buttons on the other remotes refer to the DVD subtitles and the subtitles generated by the tuner in the tv. The subtitle option is greyed out on the tv because you are not on the tv tuner.

SOURCE: Echo when connecting Samsung Plasma to Onkyo TX-SR602

Make sure you have the tv volume turned right down as this will cause an echo,also set amp to prologic 2, and set up xover to suit your speakers or go for the THX standard of 80 hrtz and as a rule of thumb set front L,C,R speakers to zero rears to about +4or5 and your sub to -5[ dont know which speakers you have but try setting the subs on board volume to the 10,o,cloak position],also make sure the speakers -,+ are wired the same at the amp and speakers.

Hope this helps.

I had the same problem with my xbox 360. I was able to fix the problem by disabling the Display Discovery setting on the xbox.

SOURCE: I have an Onkyo TX-DS797 it is about 6 yrs old

These units *(if I remember correctly) had a problem with a memory IC in the surround porcessing section that would show up initially as popping and would eventually end up with no sound at all. This is a straightforward repair that involves replacing the IC with a new one (different manufacturer). The problem is that this is a surface mounted IC and is difficult to replace without damaging the underlying PC board. This is NOT a DYI repair. Have this unit checked by an authorized Onkyo service center.

Onkyo tx-nr808 sound stopped working

These units have a common problem with the firmware not being able to load correctly. Only way to really fix it is to replace the digital board - really expensive repair. Can sometimes be fixed by reheating Q3001, but this doesn't always work.

ONKYO TX-SR701 - Hi When using the speaker config I can get output from all speakers but the Surround back speaker R does not work. I do get sound from Surround back L. It's a bit confusing as the...

7.1 would have Surround Back L and R.

6.1 would have just one back there (SB). It defaults to the Left output on the Pre-Outs if you ever go that route.

This being a 6.1 receiver it does not support two SB channels BUT you can configure those amp channels for a separate Zone supporting 2 speakers. Confused?

The manual shows a single SB speaker connected to the left side on Page 27. THAT would be consistent with a 6.1 configuration.

How do I connect my outside speakers to play?

The onkyo should still have a speaker A/B selector in the menu.
Check on the back panel for speaker A/B.
If it has or you decide to use Zone 2 you will need to set the sound programme to "stereo" so the rears and centre do not work.
You can still use a digital source.
You should be able to display the amp's menu on the screen.
Hook up "monitor out" (Yellow) via RCA connector to one of the "A/V inputs" (yellow) on the tv, this will show you a display of the menu and will make it eaiser to navigate.

Onkyo TX-SR502 AV receiver

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
