Question about Onkyo TX-SR601 Receiver

1 Answer

Volumne control When I adjust the volumne It becomes audible around 40 and then gets louder. when turning the volumne goes away at about 40. When I first set the unit up you would begin hearing the volumne at about 15 or so and then continue to get louder. Not sure what I changed to cause it. Any help would be appreciated.

Have you checked that the mute function has not been turned on. It provides a -50dB reduction in audio that may be producing you drama.

Our receiver is not operating the volumne

Make sure Speakers A + B buttons are both pressed in.

Run the test tones. If you can hear Test Tones then it's just a configuration issue.

ONKYO TX-SR608 I need to have my volumne up over 40 to get any sound and around 55 to listen to my home theatre on 5.1 . Does this sound normal? Also, how can I view the volumne when using Zone 2? I...

Yes it is normal, the 608 is a THX certified receiver, so it goes by THX reference levels.

In theory once you have run the Audyssey auto-setup with the included mic the proper reference level for watching movies will be 82 if the volume number scale is set absolute or 0dB of it is set to THX relative. At this setting the volume should be the same as watching that movie at the theater. I have mine set to power-on at a level of -30dB which corresponds to level 52 on the scale you have it set to. This is a comfortable lowish level, but I turn it up to at least -10dB AKA 72 when watching movies.

Receiver very low when watching tv or dvd

It's just "Digital Audio" vs "Analog Audio" You can use the "Volume Offset" function in the receivers "Main Menu" to compensate for this. Go into the menu then go to audio and or input settings and you can adjust the offset and lock it in. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I can help you some more. There is not a "problem" it's just the way the audio is transmitted. Like when your watching TV and a commercial comes on and BLOWS you out of the room. That's going from clean digital to noisy analog.

When i turn the volume control on my panasonic portable radio it becomes very crackley. the sound is perfect but the crackling is annoying. Can the volumn control be cleaned. thank you. SH

go to radio shack near you and buy a contact cleaner(64-4315)----apply the contact cleaner in volume and move it forward and backward until you get good sound if this failed you must change volume control.

One speaker buzz when cold

It works fine for a couple of minutes the starts to hum. If you turn up the volume it masks the noise but is till audible, also the video switching cuts out. after examining the components I have seen some heat discoloration in the power suply area and believe it to be power for the video board. disconecting the ribbon cable form the video board the hum goes away, and so does any video wich does'nt matter for me because my monitor1.gif does all the HD video1.gif switching. hope this may help with some noise problems.

Hi santka

It sounds like it has locked up from a power surge. Try a full reset of the unit by powering it down completely unplugging it from the wall socket overnight. If it still misbehaves, get back to me here and we can look into it more.
