Question about Integra DTR-5.1 Receiver

1 Answer

Volume control unstable

I am having an issue with My Integra DTR5.1. It has to with the volume control and speaker output. If i change the volume manually or by remote the unit will cut speakers out, go to high volume, go to low volume, turn unit off. I have sent it away a couple time to be fixed, out of warranty. A short time after repair the problem comes back. I really liked the receiver when new but dont want to spend too much on it as nobody has a fix that lasts. Do buy a new one, or can some repair this unit easily? Have you heard of this problem? I would estimate less than 20 hrs on unit.

Re: volume control unstable

You may have an over heating problem as it the Integra has anautomatic cut out. The unit generates a huge amount of heat and needs to be positioned in a very well ventilated position.

Integra 5.3 keeps turning off so TV will not go on. It flips back to standby mode after 2 seconds and screen says check signal cable or check connections. This issue started yesterday with a loud noise...

you most likely have a blown main output transistor or a shorted speaker. first get a mutimeter and set to lowest ohms setting and check for 4-8 ohms ( CHECK IMPEDENCE rating on back of speaker) at the speaker terminal of the speaker. if this checks out then you take the meter and set to DC and place the + / - terminals to the speaker connection on back of receiver then turn on the receiver . notice if you have any dc voltage at any sp terminal, if dc is present you have a blown output transistor. If you are not an electronic tech please refer your unit to a qualified service tech. I hope this helps.

How can I connect Senheiser wireless headphone to Yamaha RX773 without using front headphone jack as this mutes speakers, I have hearing problems, my wife doesn't, I tried both av audio outs in the back...

Your receiver has Zone-2 functionality. For Zone-2, it has both speaker (powered) output and pre-out line outputs. According to Yamaha FAQ, these pre-out outputs are independent on the main volume settings. So if your wireless headphones have their own volume settings, you can change the volume independent on speakers volume.

If you want same volume for speakers and headpohones, use the PRE-OUT FRONT outputs on the back. If you want different volumes (and listen to headphones even with speakers muted), use ZONE-2 OUT outputs on the back.

Protect mode

Check to make sure that NONE of your speaker wires on the outputs are touching each other or that there is anything obstructing any the output terminals. Also since this a 5.3 model check all the SUB outputs for the same condition (although probably not as much an issue since they are line level outputs) as well as the condition of all interconnects and speaker cables. After that check all the physical connections at every speaker to make sure you haven't shorted out an output at that location.

Onkyo integra dtr 6.8 protrection problems

The audio output stage has load issue, check speaker wires for shorts, if okay! the problem is in the semiconductors and this is where a professional is needed.

My left rear speaker has no sound. All others work. I have tested the speaker on a different reciever and it works fine. My reciever is a integra DTR 5.5

Swap your left and right rear speaker over. If you still get no sound from the right speaker connected to the left speaker connection on the receiver, then you have a fault on the receiver output. Check your manual first to see if any setting switch off the rear speaker before taking the unit for repair or replace

The receiver turns on and immediately goes to standby

The unit is going into protect mode. Lets hope it has done the job and the receiver has protected itself from failure.
Protect mode can result from speaker wires touching each other or the Amps metal case. Check that first.
It can also be caused by unstable ohm loads if too many speakers are connected to any of the outputs especially zone 2.
If you can remove all speaker wires and turn the unit back on. If it stays on, turn the volume down on the main zone and zone 2 if connected. Then reconnect speaker wires.

Low to no volume output from Integra DTR-5.2 receiver

most higher end integra's have a input level adjusment or input selection for each and every input. Perhaps you are not on the correct input, go to onscreen programming and check out the input level and input select - also try the tape in another input like tape 2 or cd. It will not hurt the receiver for a test. Also, if you are using the cheap cables from the manufacturer - try a pair of cables that you know work or go by some. BTW, you don't need to spend $40 for cables order them online through amazon or other store. Gold / sliver plated oxygen free are best.

Inside speakers(1) and deck speakers playing (2) output is at very different levels

The things that affect the outside vs. inside volume are distance and ohms of the speakers if the inside ones are 4ohm and the outside are 8ohm then there will be a drastic difference in volume, also if the inside speaker wires are shorter by 20 feet then there will also be a drastic differences in volume.

What you can do is have a separate amp for inside and out with the input coming from the same receiver. The other thing you can do is put an inline amp for the outside speakers with this you can also balance the volume.

When you have longer wires you drop more voltage across them then when you have shorter ones you also has losses due to electrical interference from lights and the household wiring. To combat this I would suggest an inline amp so that you can balance the speakers more effectively and drop out most of the noise (mostly hum that you hear at a higher volume) that you are probably getting unless you put on filters on the speakers. But if you want to keep it simple than you need a separate amp with a common input, this way as well you can control the speakers to have a different volume for different situations.

Volume and multi channel output issue

Hi there. Are you familiar with board level repair for such products ? Your problem is most likely hardware. Either some of the final output transistors are fried, or it's a dsp problem, a regulator, a diode, a transistor in the circuit.. it could be a lot of things. But if everything was working fine and it quit someday without a change in the system's setup, it really looks like an hardware issue ! Do you have a way in the manual, that sets factory defaults, a kind of reset ? A lot of such units do have that. Try to unplug/interchange speakers as well, a shorted speaker could make the amp go nuts as well, but i wouldn't bet on it. Still, i'd check that out. Hope that helps ! cheebster.
