Onkyo HT R550 sound going in and out

My Onkyo HT R550 home theatre receiver has been cutting in and out with the sound only after being on for a few minutes, (as if it were the sound were being paused/unpaused). I have had this model for about 3 months now, and this problem has just shown up within the past week. Any help or possible solutions would be greatly appreciated.

I bought an onkyo hts-5300 it has grave reviews for sound. Yet it is not producing what i feel it should,what is the ideal db setting for the speakers for crisp sound and deep theatre style bass

"Grave" reviews??

If you set it up as specified in the manual it will be optimized. As far as volume settings while listening go, that is subjective and entirely up to you, your speakers and your neighors.

I have an Onkyo HT R550 hooked up to my blue ray via an optical audio cable,the question is why wont it do 7.1 at all it is a full onkyo 7.1 system

The limitation could be in either end. The player may not be set up to transmit the full 7.1 bitstream or the Onkyo may not be set up to play it (7.1 speakers defined, digital input assigned, calibration completed etc.)

You'll find all that in the manuals.

No audio from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100 7.1

if you are using an HDMI cable dont expect sound to come out (even thought HDMI carries both audio and video) the onkyo HT-s5100's Receiver is the HT-r560. the 500 models of the onkyo receiver does not allow HDMI to carry both audio and video. it only allows the video signal to pass to the receiver.

if youre using optical for audio w/c is what you need then these are the steps you need to follow.
*first make sure that the optical connections are ok at the back of the receiver.
*make sure that your DIGITAL INPUT is set to either OPT1 or OPT2 whichever optical input you used to connect the optical cable.
*then go to your PS# settings : go to sound settings / audio moutput settings/ select digital out (optical).

then enjoy.....ü

No sound with ps3, connected to a 7.1 av receiver & projection tv

Hi...the HT-R800 Home Theater system has the HT-R550 receiver which could only carry Video via HDMI. you would need to connect a separate audio cale(Optical Audio Cable) to be able to get audio out of the PS3 to the receiver. Once you have hooked up an Optical Audio Cable you would need to go in the PS3 setup and putin Bitstream and Optical in the Audio Setup menu.

Onkyo subwoofer not working

I fixed my subwoofer. The resistor at R16 (right next to the fuse) was the fried component. I removed it and replaced it with a 13K ohm 5 watt metal oxide resistor (from Mouser Electronics if not available locally). Works fine now. I got the solution and the circuit schematic from an audio hobbiest at This is, evidently, a fairly common problem.
