Locked up Onkyo TR-505

My receiver is stuck on 42 volume output. Sound works but can not be adjusted. I can't turn the receiver off our change channels, nothing. It will only play on the DVD source and at 42 volume?

    Mine's locked up too, just watching tv one night, volume stuck on 38, and won't change inputs. Has anyone found a solution yet? I hate to throw it away, especially if it can be fixed.

FIXED!!! YES, i kept researching and came across a guy that said a button my be pressed, so press all the button on the front display and make sure they all click. I had punched mine a few months ago when it locked up so i had to take it apart and fix da broken buttons, but i clicked each one on the circuit board manually and VOILA it works again, just wish i hadn't got mad and punch it. Man i hookin it up right now and watching a high definition movie in DOLBY SURROUND SOUND....here is post that i found

Join Date: May 2010 Location: Can't say Posts: 22 Locked up Onkyo TR-505 - icon1.gif To me it sounds like you have a faulting tact switch holding one of your 'key' lines down either partially or fully. This is a very common problem on Onkyo's DVCP704 and DVCP706 dvd players but sometimes happens on their receivers too. What happens is it hangs the cpu and it sits there waiting for that one of 3 or 4 'key' lines to go back high before it will accept any other input signals. If this is the problem and whatever shop you take it too finds it readily it shouldn't be to pricey but that is alot of 'if's' n'stuff. wink.gif

Keep in mind this is a long distance diagnosis and there are a number of things that could bring on this symptom.. That's just the most likely imo.

Try pressing and releasing all of your front panel buttons once one after another. Once in a long while I see a receiver that got bumped and the plastic button the user actually touches gets caught in the down position holding the tact switch depressed. This will cause the same symptom.
Each should have roughtly the same feeling as you press them.

Hooking laptop to onkyo sr604 through hdmi no sound through stero


hdmi is video only

you will need to use the rca/phono inputs for audio.

you will need a stereo mini jack to steroe rca/phono

use the i/p marked aux/cd/

make sure the volume on the onkyo is turned DOWN before connecting any new input source.

The output from most laptops is designed for headphones so you may need to adjust the volume on the laptop DOWN as well.

Perhaps start off with laptop at 30% and the amp DOWN then increase the amp until you can hear the laptop sound.

To get good quality audio from a laptop you would be beter off with a USB sound card.

hope this helps, thanks for using FixYa

I wish to reduce the level of sound coming from the sub woofer. I cannot get the main menu up on screen by pressing reciever setup buttons. I have seen it done by a freind so I know it is possible what am...


On your remote control, first press the "RECEIVER" button followed by the "SETUP" button.

Here is a link to the user manual (bottom right corner of page): http://www.eu.onkyo.com/products/TX-SR605.html

From page 70 onwards it is explained how to set up the speaker levels.

Alternatively you could of course adjust the volume on the subwoofer itself. Most (active) subwoofers nowadays offer an output volume adjustment.

Good luck.

My Onkyo TX-SR606 will not turn off, will not adjust volume, will not change modes, will not do anything but stay "stuck" on cable/satellite at volume 33. It will not reset. I unplugged it, waited, and...


contact onkyo and ask for a disc that you use threw the cd player via a toslink . The disc will upgrade your avr ,thus overwriting any problems you had. My tx-sr705 had an issue with popping during blu ray playback while the dts-master audio was being used. I got a disc that upgraded the chip that utilizes the codec's.

I have a Vizio 42' and a cable box and there's a constant humming


I think I had the same problem. This is how I fixed it.

I have my vizio 42 hooked up to a Harmon Kardon surround sound, and the digital cable box. Essentially, I can adjust the volume 3 ways - through the tv, cable box or av receiver. The humming sound happens when you have the volume maxed out on the av receiver and not the cable box.

For example, the sound level on my Harmon Kardon goes from -10 (lowest) to 10 (loudest), with 0 being the middle ground. The buzzing was happening when the Harmon Kardon was set to 10, and I was using the cable box volume to adjust the sound. To fix it, I turned down the volume on my receiver to 0, which may be about 50% max volume of the receiver. Then, I switched devices and used the volume on my cable box. This got rid of the static I was getting. Hope that helps.

My Onkyo Receiver TX 601 is turning itself off


Several things can cause this: Loud signal passages can momentarily draw high currents at the mains, especially if you have unit plugged into power stripe with other equipment. Or if unit is plugged into isolation transformer, current draw may exceed output of transformer. Too many speakers hooked to output or if one is bad (partially shorted due to overheating)

Rear Speaker volume too low


Channel level output can be adjusted in the menu if you have the remote. Set the rear channel level volume higher and the fronts lower if need be, and then turn up the volume. Enjoy!

No sound


Hi guys

It sounds like the unit has locked up from a power flip type situation. I suggest powering the unit down completely overnight and then fire it up again in the morning and see how it behaves. Some of your system menu presets may have lost their settings and may need to be setup again also. Get back to me here if you have the same condition after doing a full reset in this manner.
