Front buttons won't work

I have an Onkyo TX-DS474 receiver. It has worked great, but today, I bought a big screen and had to manuever all of my audio/video equipment around. When I hooked everything back up, my power button, all the buttons on the bottom and the volume do not work anymore. Have I fried something?

Re: Front buttons won't work

The microprocessor may be locked up. While pressing and holding "video 1", press "speaker A". When "clear" appears in the display, the micro has been reset to the factory default condition. To do a full reset without taking it apart, it may have to sit up to 3 weeks for the backup battery to run down.

TX-DS474 settings clear when power is switched off

That's what the standby button is for. The "master power" button should only be turned off if you are going to be out of town for months at a time. If you use a good surge protection unit like monster or panamax, there is no reason to turn off the master power. It only draws about 200milliamps of current to keep its memory. About as much as a clock radio when its off. Hope this helps

Re: ONKYO with New LCD HI Def Television

Hi Lucylu

I don't have a solution to your problem -- but I do have the receiver and want to hook up my Plasma TV through the ONKYO TX-DS474 receiver. Its a great receiver but am not sure it will "do the job" being so old in the tooth.

Hope you found a solution!!

Onkyo TX-DS474 Receiver shuts down after Standby mode.

It's going into a protect mode. The amp is probably shorted out. Disconnect the spkrs and turn it on. If it still shuts off, it's the amp, if not, it's the spkrs.
