Re: light on volume

The "light" is a LED (light emitting diode).

Typically does not burn out unless overly saturated [voltage/current].

Yes; check the two wires that go from the knob/led itself to the PCB [printed circuit board]. Should all be fine, check to see if you are getting voltage on the wires [~ 1.7VDC]. No Voltage? The transistor driver is to blame [usually small, black transistor].

Re: light on volume

The problem is most likely in the unit. You could have a burned out lite or just a bad connection to the lite. You can take off the volume knob by just pulling on it and checking it out thier, then take the top cover off and follow the wire from the knob and check out the connections.

I've got an Onkyo M-282 with one channel that just died. Upon visual exam, there seems to be absolutely nothing wrong with it (the caps are all flat, not puffing, no broken components or smells...).

Likely you blew your outputs Transistors or mos fets, you cannot be sure without ohm meter. usually when one side goes out the protection kick in on both chanels

Just got a vintage Onkyo receiver mod # TX-840. I have a very scratchy sound in both A and B right channels on all sources. Figured it was a blob channel HOWEVER this unit has a

Vintage hardware means vintage contacts on all the controls which means oxidation which would cause crackly sound or total silence. Typically, it might be a switch you rarely use, like a Tape Monitor or Mute. It's wise to occasionally (with power OFF) manipulate all manual controls throughput their ranges a number of times to wipe oxides from their contacts. Beyond that a trip to the hifi doctor would be advised.

When volume from receiver is turned up amp will "clip" out, lose all bass and sound real tinny. what could be causing problem?

This can be caused by a defective output power transistor, but a professional electronics technician is needed to test and confirm this.

L or R Channel cuttint out

You have a shorted speaker, crossed speaker wires Or a blown speaker. The amp is reacting to the short.

Start with one speaker by itself, unplug the rest. Check the polarity. Run it on the channel that cuts out. can you replicate it? Check the connections on the amp, and see if they are really close to touching.

Absolutely if it happens on both amps, unless you bought both B stock or Remanufacturerd and they have the same problem. This is rare

Hope that helps you!

Onkyo CR-505Dab - no sound!

The problem could be with the remote itself. The volume buttons on remotes usually get the most use and therefore wear out. Try using a universal remote programmed for your Onkyo and see if that works.

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.
