Question about Onkyo TX-SR601 Receiver

Zone two spkrs will not play

After having to reset my unit by unplugging from wall outlet due to no power, my zone two spkrs stopped working and power sub stopped. I have proven that all my spkrs work. I took the unit in a auth repair shop, and they found no problem. I called Onkyo support and had a terrible time trying to understand the man. He had a thick accent, but I tried to work through it with him. He had me switch some speaker wires around ( i lost track of what he had me do), but by doing so, my zone two spkrs would work. He told me that proved I had a bad spkr. Now, since I know all the spkrs do indeed work, what's the problem! Help, this is driving me crazy!! Oh, by the way, I don't know for sure if the sub is working or not, but is not plugged into the pre-out on the back on the unit.

    There are three front spkrs. One center, left, right, two back spkrs that are connected to the surround spkr terminal. The powered subwoofer for now is disconnected. The zone two spkrs are connected to a spkr switch. Yesterday I connected two pair of spkrs directly to the zone two terminals on the back of the unit. Both pair played when zone two was turned on. So I then disconnected everything from the spkr switch and hooked the spkr wire directly to the zone two spkrs(which should have duplicated what I did yesterday), and it did not work.

    Zone two stopped working. spkrs on zone two work when connected directly to the zone two posts. zone two spkrs are two pair that go to my patio and are connected via a spkr switch. I also disconnected from the spkrs switch are connected spkr wire directly to the pair outside and they do not work, even though that is the identical thing i did inside. unit has been checked by repair center and no problem was found. subwoofer also stopped working at the same time. this all started after i had to unplugg the unit and reset due to it not being able to powered on.

    the subwoofer is disconnected for now. I'm trying to get the zone two spkrs to work. I don't think that with the subwoofer disconnected that could be causing this problem? could it? and also, when i connect the zone two spkrs to the unit directly they work.

  • Outofit Feb 24, 2008

    I've done that. You set the configuration to zone two so that its now turned on. Same thing for the subwoofer. You set the subwoofer to "YES" so that it is recognized by the unit. What I don't understand is, I took an old 2 channel stero, ran the spkr wire from the spkr switch to the stero, turn on zone two, and both pair of spkrs play. If I put the spkr wire back on the Onkyo on the zone two terminals, they will not play. This proves the sprks work, the spkr wire is ok, and the spkr switch is ok. I can't remember what the onkyo support person had me do, something like move the zone two spkr wire to a front spkr termainal, and then turned zone two, and they played. I just for the life of me can't figure out what's going on,

Hi,

I believe that the problem is with the speakers however you may first follow the advice of IB4G2008.Even then if your problem is not solved then it is definetly the speakers which needs to be replaced or repaired.

Goodluck..

I was just reading this..seems to me that perhaps you might consider checking the control panel settings first, to ensure you are working with full quad sound drivers?

    Just bring all the unit to the repairshop you been, so that they can make a through test of all the speaker unit.



    You cannot predict which and where the problem came out by testing and bringing the unit into the repairshop part by part.

Denon AVR-2309C1 will not play sound through


Turn off zone 2 then turn your receiver on the main zone on Radio, tune in a station and check for audio. Post a comment and let me know if audio works that way. If you don't have any audio, list your other equipment makes and models as well as how they are interconnected to your receiver (cable type) and I will help you troubleshoot

Yamaha rx v1800 receiever will only play tuner on zone 2 speakers


Solution on page 111 of the owner's manual:

"Connect the source component to the analog audio input jacks of this unit to play back the source in Zone 2 or Zone 3.
This unit does not output the audio signals input at the DIGITAL INPUT and HDMI jacks to the ZONE OUT jacks."

Basically you cannot use an HDMI input if you want to play in Zone 2 or 3. A simple solution is to add an extra audio cable from your PS3 audio output jack to an analog audio input jack on the receiver.

Speaker connection from Denon AVR 2105 to Wharfedale suround


The spkrs sound like they are bi-amp spkrs, meaning you have multiple terminals on the backs of each spkr, the jumpers on the spkrs should be connected as such. Now you just connect the spkrs according to the Denon spkr conection diagram. Do not use the surround back unless you have 6 or 7 pair of spkrs

Denon AVR-3805 zone 2 no longer working


time to reset the microprocessor. See page 87 in manual.
1) switch off the unit using the main unit's power operation (small power button)
2) hold the PURE DIRECT button and DIRECT button at same time and turn the main unit's power operation on.
3) wait for entire display to flash in 1 second intervals

now the speakers need to be set up again but zone 2 will be working. i suspect a power surge causes the microprocesser to be corrupted. i put a power surge protector and have not had problems (lately).
