Question about Onkyo HT-SR800 System

1 Answer

Video disappears within 30 seconds

First of all let me say that i am a firm believer in "user error". I hope that this will be the cause here.

I have just finished setting up my new HT-SR800 system (I gift from my son) and I have a problem.
When i try to watch something from the Cable Box or the DVD, I lose the image within 30 seconds. Most of the time I don't see any video; occasionally I do but i lose the image within 30 seconds. I see the video only when I turn on a device, but i can't reproduce the problem. That is, I intermittently get video upon start up, but most of the time there is none. This problem appeared after I finished the setup (I added the Onkyo DVD Player) and moved all the pieces to their final positions in my TV stand.

I know that there is continuity in the connections since I was able to watch Cable TV last night. I know that the connections still work today, since I see the video briefly. As I mentioned, today I added the DVD player into the mix. However, the problem continues to exist even if I unplug that device from the receiver.

My connections are as follow:
1. Receiver to Sony HDTV -- HDMI Cable
2. DVD to Receiver -- HDMI Cable & digital audio via an optical cable.
3. Cable Box to Receiver -- DVI/HDMI Cable & digital audio via an optical cable.

I am frustrated by not being able to fix this. My wife is peeved that she is not able to watch the big TV. Furthermore, I am irritated that I had to troubleshoot this rather than watch the OSU/LSU game.

I would appreciate any help that you can provide.

(As an aside, is it really reasonable for Onkyo to say they have HDMI connections if they do not implement the audio portion of the spec? It's really DVI with copy protection and different/worse connectors. I was irritated that I had to purchase the digital video cables that my son neglected to supply.)

Hi Mark

I am going to take a stab in the dark here...

Did you plug the hdmi from the receiver to hdmi via the monitor hdmi output? this is needed so when you change the device on the receiver ie. between setop box and dvd the monitor changes with it accordingly.

You may also need to go to the setop box to set it to use hdmi output at the right frequencies too..ie. 720p 1080i or 1080p.Also set it so it only sends the picture via hdmi but audio still with optical out.

good luck

Error c cart


Try the following...
-Remove the cyan cartridge from your printer and close any open doors.
-Turn the printer off.
-Turn the printer on again.
-Firmly re-install the cyan toner cartridge.
This will force your printer to actively look for a new toner and hopefully it will be accepted this time. If the problem remains install the old toner cartridge (if available) to make sure the error disappears.

Assuming it does it would appear there may be a genuine fault with the toner cartridge. If not there is almost certainly a sensor error inside the printer and I would advise contacting Dell (if it is within warranty) or a technician if it is outside of warranty.

Error 76


try this- press the "menu/set" button, then " *2864 " . the *2864 you have to enter within a 2 second window, so you may have to try this more than once. when you hear a long beep, you got it. press "91". you should see "parameter init" on screen. wait for that message to disappear. unplug machine at this point, wait 5 seconds and plug back in. if it comes up with that error again, then you truly have a problem with your fusing unit and will have to have repaired. sometimes though, this error can be caused just by a power outage or fluctuation. if thats the case it should come back up to normal after you successfully do this procedure.

good luck

CE ERROR


CE is a communication error.

This is an automatic check performed anytime the unit is powered up. If there is no data communication between the main panel and the ignitor you will get this code within 30 seconds.

If communication is re-established this code will disappear.

DO NOT do any of the following with AC power on / to the unit.

First check the ignitor then, the wiring and terminals from the ignitor to the main board.

There just might be a corrosion problem with the circuitry or corrosion on the main board itself.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How to reset the de message


Press the START/PAUSE button and the displayed error code will disappear and the machine will go into pause status.

Power will be turned off automatically and the error code will blink if the error is not resolved within 20 seconds.

It is a door open error and usually caused by a faulty door switch assembly or broken door latch hook.

Make sure the door is firmly closed and avoid overloading the machine. Clothing may come between the door and cause the error.

Feel free to inform me if the error is not resolved. I will guide you how to check the door switch assembly and how to replace it.

Toshiba televison picture keeps going yellow


Sounds like the blue is disappearing from your picture. A common cause of this is bad solder connections which can cause the blue signal to be lost at several places. It could also be due to picture tube failure. Sadly, I'm leaning toward tube failure because of your description. Bad solder connections usually take some time to start acting up after you turn on the set, but you say this happens every time within a few seconds. This is typical of a picture tube failure where an internal connection is okay until the tube heats up, and that takes only a short time. A service shop could check the set to make a firm diagnosis, but if the tube is the culprit you should replace the TV. It's not economical to consider tube replacement.

I have a philips DVD home theatre system HTS8100. Its fine except that NO dvds play in synch. I have checked them on my normal DVD player & they are fine. The synch button on the remote sometimes fixes...


Synch problems on Philips machines can be caused by the video output setting.

Usually there are 3 options for video output:
  • PAL
  • NTSC
  • AUTO
PAL & NTSC force playback in that setting, regardless of DVD format, and sometimes cause a time delay in the conversion.

Try changing this option to AUTO. IF you have a modern TV, it should allow both PAL & NTSC playback.
