IT may just be the components transistors or the fan could not be functioning causing the receiver to overheat

My ONKYO TX-SR601 receive will not let me play my zone 2 speakers. I get a message saying '' Powered Zone 2 is not activated. How do I activate Zone 2? Thanks. Tom

Have just got a 607 myself, but it may apply to your model too.
Press the RECEIVER button followed by SETUP. On the TV screen a menu should appear and select SPEAKER SETUP then SPEAKER SETTINGS and set the powered Zone speakers to ACT.
SETUP will then return you to normal. Note: some other surround speakers will be switched off when ACT is on and ACT won't come on if Bi-amp is used.

Don't know how to adjust volume on remote speakers

Can I ask you something? I have the same but the remote doesn't work, and I have no sound in the B speakers. I wonder if there's something that I have to do with the remote, or there's a problem with the receiver, Thanks.

Onkyo amplifier

Is power coming out of transformer at the right voltage. Also may have a power i.c. shorting to ground.Final anp i.c. may have a place to go to ground through a shorted capacitor.
