Onkyo TX-DS838 Issues

Left front speaker sound seems weak. Fan no longer works. "Protect" now comes on when volume is increased. Remote volume no longer works. Is this receiver worth taking to someone to repair and approx. what would it cost? Thanks!

The problem here is that the output amplifier section has a problem. This is detected internally and the system shuts down in a "protect" mode. The output section really only kicks in when you attempt to bring up the volume. Another possibility is a problem in the "front end" where DC current is being passed to the amp section. Without takeing measurements, it is difficult to determine the exact cause. This should be a relatively stright-forward repair for a service shop and should cost about $20-$40 in parts plus the local labor charge.

Get a RCA cable and connect from your amp where it said Sub Woofer in the Pre Out box in the back of the amplifier top left hand side and take it to the "Sub In" located in the back of your Sub woofer bottom right hand (White round connector).
Good Luck!

My Onkyo TX-SR806 remote has recently lost its mind. The On/Standby switch no longer turns receiver on or off; must do it manually on the receiver. The Volume control is now reversed: when you press the UP...


Hello, the most used buttons can wear out over time. On/standby and volume are the ones that are used most often. I suggest purchasing a new remote. It is available at shoponkyo.com. Thank you, Onkyo USA

Onkyo TX-DS838 Receiver. Mine just sparked smoked


Not worth repairing until the root cause of the failure is proven.
The reason being is that you can have it happen again if caused by any of the devices attached to it, such as inefficient speakers.

My onkyo tx-ds838 motor fan do not move


The fan in those Audio System only turns at about 1/4 to 1/3 of the ride of your volume control.
It had been intentionnaly designed like that, to achive a quiet operation at low hearing volume.
But if the fan don't move by cranking up the volume at 1/2 to 5/8 of the volume control (with speakers on). You need to have the fan or the fan power circuit checked by technician.

TX DS838 WHEN TURNINGVOLUME DOWN UNIT MAKES A POP SOUND


Sight unseen my money says the new problem is a direct result of the 'repair' to the channels that are giving you problems now. You didn't elaborate on what it was you were trying to fix in the first place. Backtrack your steps and undo what you can to see if the bug changes.

Onkyo ts595 goes into protect mode with volume increase


Hold the VCR/DVR button in and press the ON/OFF Standby button. The display should briefly read CLEAR and then the unit switches off. If that clears protect mode, you'll need to redo the Audyssey and configuration setup as these will have been cleared by the reset.

Onkyo ts595 goes into protect mode with volume increase


HI check your speaker cables are not touching, also make sure "b" speakers are not on and that all your speakers are 4ohm or higher as this will cause the amp to shut down if they are to low an impedeance,The amp is protecting itself when it shuts down.

hope this helps.
