Re: No sound when first turned on.

I have an amplifier ONKIO too and my generation is older than yours but i'm the same probleme and it's normal if you use this amplifier to your speakers. the internal switch must be heat to give a normal sound without distorsion. it's the principal problem of the onkio amplifier but after the quality of thr sound is great
so take the time and be patient now you know you have to start on your amplifier 5mn before use :)

you need to find a headphones, put a drop of contact cleaner on headphone plug and plug it into receiver's h/p input several times. It cleanes internal h/p connector contacts and unit will work fine. If doen't help the receiver most likely has bad h/p connector soldering.

I have a Pioneer VSX-4900S that when first turned on (cold) the right channel doesn't work unless I turn the volume up loud or let it warm up and roll the volume knob up and down. From then on it works...

Hmmm, that almost sounds like a bad solder. As things heat up, they expand. When there is a bad solder (even if you can't see it) as the unit heats up and the pieces expand, the contacts at the solder point will meet and allow the circuit to complete, thus producing sound through the right channel.

Take a large magnifying glass, and with it, examine the bottom side of each of the circuit boards, looking for a solder point that is not well formed.

Poping in speakers

Same issue with my AVR-589...2-15 minutes after sound is playing (via TV or DVD). I checked all wires and speakers. Even reconfigured to audio only (analog) coming in, same issue. Put my old Denon receiver in and the problem disappears...possible overheating issue with this new unit?

try turning the unit off in standby mode then hold down the enter button and then the power button for about 10m seconds that should reset the unit depending on how new the unit is it sometimes has a digital saftey setting but i doubt that would cause it to do what you are saying

Starting system cold, no sound for 2-3 minutes

Its not worth having it looked at. $100.00 for a new 400.00 unit? My unit is doing the same thing. Turn it on and 2 to 5 minutes later it may come on. Change to video 3 4 5 etc it stop again. Only works with a cold start. Something in the unit has failed and is heat related. My original Kenwood 20/20 recevier still works. Must be 40 years old. New products just last 5 to ten years max if your lucky.
