Question about Onkyo TX-SR706 Receiver

1 Answer

Trips and switches off

I have had the Onkyo TX-SR706 for nearly 2 years - working fine. This morning when I started the receiver - 10 minutes after - it made a loud tripping sound on the speakers and went to standby - with the standby light blinking.

Subsequently every time I switch on the receiver - it (trips) and makes the loud noise immediately - and switches off to standby.

Thanks for any help

Hello Fixya customer,

Thank you for your question.

The best way to fully isolate the fault is to disconnect all the speaker wires, and verify that there are no strands of wire shorting between the speaker terminals on the rear of the unit.

Turn the volume all the way down, full CCW, and if it goes into shut down with the STBY light blinking then there is a fault in one of the amplifier's.

Thank you for using Fixya, and if I can be of further assistance please ask.

I have the TX SR706 receiver for two years and yesterday when I turn it on it did a load boom sound and since then there are no sound


I had this happen to my unit shortly after I purchased it. When I turned the receiver on there was a loud pop through the speakers, the red light on the front started blinking and the unit failed to produce sound.

A tack worked its way through one of the speaker wires, causing a short. I replaced the wire and unplugged the receiver for an hour. It's worked well for the past two years since this issue.

If you haven't done so already, check all of your speaker wires and plugs on the receiver and the speakers. You may have a damaged wire or metal-on-metal contact somewhere. Try these steps:

1. Unplug the unit and disconnect all wires and connections. Let the unit sit for an hour.

2. Check all cords for damage or crossed connections.

3. Reconnect the power cord and set the volume to minimum. Turn the receiver on. If it stays on, shut it off, unplug it and reconnect everything, taking care to ensure that speaker wires and/or plugs don't make contact.

4. Plug the receiver in, set the volume to minimum (it should already have this setting after step 3) and turn it on.

It sounds like there is a short somewhere in either the wiring or the receiver. This caused the popping noise and activated the receiver's protection circuit. If it's a damaged wire or plugs or wires making contact, you can reset the unit with the directions above, replace or separate the wires and all should work. If the issue is within the unit, you'll have to contact Onkyo directly.

Onkyo remote won't control Samsung components.


I got an Onkyo RC-717M remote control. It is the remote that comes with the Onkyo TX-SR706 receiver. It is a learning remote. When i entered the cde for the Samsung Blu-Ray it did the same thing as the other remotes I got from Onkyo, the pause, next / previous track buttons wouldn't work for the Samsung BD-P3600. I used the learning function of the new remote and programmed it to work. It works ok now but it sure was a hassle to get it done. In fairness i should have called Onkyo support but their support hours don't match my schedule.

When I first turn on the receiver in the morning to watch TV, (ATT Uverse), I get an error, "No Signal." After about 10 minutes, if I switch the input on my TV, then go back to the correct input, it...


if you are using hdmi cable, you should switch to using component cables for the video - (red/blue/green) - you will need to use the white/red for your sound (or the optical cable) - uverse is aware of the issue and if you call they probably wont be able to send someone out but they can give you a credit for buying the cables

Onkyo TX-SR706; Turntable output only from one speaker


Try some troubleshooting to check whether its the turntable or the the receiver.

What happens if you exchange the output cables of the turntable from left to right. Does the problem shift?
Does the sound changes from left to right speaker?

Similarly try on the inputs of the Receiver.. does the problem shift...?
This way you will be able to isolate the problem, whether with the receiver or the turntable....

Let me know, we can trouble shoot it further....
