Re: Receiver not working properly

This probably means that the connected speakers are of less Ohm than the recommended value.Hence amplifier is going into overload range.

Your volume emitter needs to be replaced. And or the resisters on both sides of it.

Low sound out at volume of -20 db

If your unit is working fine in every function except this one, it indicates the receiver is working properly, the only suggestion I can offer is try another set of HMI cables.

Hi, this is not really a problem. I have an Onkyo TX-SR604 receiver. I had polkaudio speakers RTi8 speakers that are no longer working properly. I am looking for recommendations for new speakers that can...

A receiver with the specs...

* "90 watts minimum continuous power per channel, 8 ohm loads, 2 channels driven from 20 Hz to 20 kHz, with a maximum total harmonic distortion of 0.08%"

(*) The only acceptable statement of its power bandwidth in the manual.

... when fed an undistorted audio signal, used properly and not driven abto clipping is not particularly dangerous to any reputable speaker.

Driving any amplifier, even a modest one, into high distortion is more dangerous to any speaker than a high-powered amp pumping pure undistorted power.

Choose any speakers but low efficiency models if you want loud and clean sound.

Make sure you have the sub connected to the proper output on the receiver and no connections are damaged.
Then check the gain/level control for the sub. on the receiver...turn it up if it's down.
Make sure that in speaker setup, that you have the selection for a sub turned on.

Comcast remote

The volume keys should be working by default, but you may have volume punch through turned on (meaning the remote is sending signals for TV or CABLE volume function no matter what mode you are actually on). To unlock volume control for AUX mode, do the following:
1. Press and release AUX
2. Press and hold SETUP until the remote blinks twice
3. Type 993
4. Press and release VOL-
The remote should blink four times to confirm unlock.

My Onkyo Receiver TX 601 is turning itself off

May not help, but I had the same thing when I turned up the volume.. off it went.. then I found my two surround sound speakers had the wires shorting. Looks like a safety switch if there is a problem. Could check if the wires are crossed, shorted, and/or thick enouch to handle the volume.. test it by just having the stereo speakers enabled. Cheers,

Shuts off everytime i turn it up pass 4.

Speaker wire contact with each other is the problem. Check the back of ALL SIX speakers including sub-woofer. You should find wires contacting each other. Fix that and your problem will be solved.
