First try unpluging it for an hour from the socket
2.if that doesnt work try toggling your eq button on the remote control trying it on then trying it off
3.if that does not work try with the cenima button on then try with it off
4. if that doesnt work try changing the cross over frequency to a lower output
5. if that doesnt work try lower the decibals going to each speaker if you follow this you should either fix the problem or increase the intravel time in it cutting off

You are either getting DC voltage leaking into the final amp stage or the unit is heating up and the temp sensor is shutting down the outputs. Without taking measurements, it will be hard to determine remotely. I would suggest a trip to the service shop. If you are getting DC voltage leakage, the parts cost will be arount $10 or so. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost.

Receiver turns off at volume of about 45 to 50 when watching blu ray movies


It is picking up DISTORTION and is going in to shutdown mode.... (protecting your system) play it at 44 or less... not because it's BLEURAY that it's perfect, the level and quality varies from one recording to another... think of a cuttoff just like a car engine when someone tries to go over the dangerous level of RPM's... the engine cutt's off...

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.

Can I play my ipod through my Onkyo TX-SR600 receiver?


All you have to do is get a 3.5mm plug to two RCA plugs lead and plug the 3.5 Jack in the headphone socket of your ipod and the two RCA's into an aux imput and away you go. If you get one of the small docks, that will stop the battery running down, but you don't need one.
By the look of the picture on FixYa it looks the RCA's can go in the front socket under the volume control.

It turns off with an error to Check Speaker wires. It's done this in the past, usual if I push the volume too it's threshold. It would always bounce back. Now it shuts down at just about it's mid-peak...


Did the fact that it was responding negatively to the loud volume not suggest it might be a bad idea to keep doing it?

The threshold on the volume knob is NOT where normal undistorted listening levels are found. Given a normal level of input you could be pushing your amp so hard that it clips or distorts and kills your speakers.

Do what it asks: check the speaker wires for shorts. Or disconnect the speakers and pray it comes back to life, then isolate the shorted (dead) speaker.

Maximum Volume is set at 79 yet will max out at 60-65 depending on source, TV, Audio or DVD is anything wrong?


have you done the audessey setup or even changed the level calibration on your receiver? if so this would reduce the actual max volume on the receiver.

Volume Control


I had the same issue, there is a Late night mode on the remote that minimizes the volume of a loud scene so you don't have the constantly adjust the volume. Works great if you are trying to watch a movie while others are trying to sleep.

Volume is changing/decreasing


well, that information is slightly undescriptive and unnecessarily vague, but I think I can suggest a few things.

If the problem only occurs when watching your HDTV, I am assuming you are using the Audio Out on your TV to pipe sound down to your Onkyo receiver. If this is the case, the TV volume may be turned down lower by mistake and you have to turn up the Onkyo's volume to correct for the difference.

Another possibility is that some other variable has changed i.e. source material, programming, TV firmware update. What did you change to get this to happen? Is it reproducible? Can you use other source material (DVD, VCR, or DAP (mp3 player) and use it at the same volume levels as before? I tend to think that your problem is with the HDTV, not the Onkyo. User error is the most common type.

may be some one modified the set up. You can configure different level for different speakers.
