Question about Audio Players & Recorders

2 Answers

I have had an Onkyo tx-sr706 for 9 months and when i went to turn it on today I was getting sound but no video being sent to my television. My samsung pn50b650 displays check signal cable. This only happens with HDMI, the same thing I have been using the last 9 months. I checked to see if it works with component cables and it does work that way. It will only give sound to any input when I use HDMI.

    my time warner cable box, xbox 360, and sony blu ray player are all hooked up via HDMI to the Onkyo receiver and one HDMI output from the receiver to the television. They all do the same thing. Only way i can get a picture is to bypass the onkyo or use component cables thru the onkyo. BTW, it all worked fine last time i used the home theater and no changes were made

Most likely the issue is the signal that is being passed through the Onkyo and/or the Onkyo data is changing the signal to a format that your TV does not support.

With your modern TVs if they get a signal that is out of range of what they support they will turn off the video to keep from damaging the TV.

Let me know what video devices that arre sending a signal through the Onkyo data and what type of connection they are using.

    I have a scientific atlanta explorer 8240 HDC settop box for my cable, xbox 360, and sony bdp-560 blu-ray player connected to the HDMI inputs of the Onkyo and one output to my samsung pn50b650 plasma tv. The onkyo acts the same no matter what source I select, sound but no picture, unless I change the cables to component video instead of the HDMI cable

    So actually it sounds like an issue with the setting on your Onkyo. The link below is to your manual. If you look on page 92 you might try lowering the resolution output of the Onkyo.



    http://filedepot.onkyousa.com/Files/own_...



    If this does not work you my need to reset the AV receiver/AV amplifier to its factory defaults. To do this turn on the unit while holding down the [VCR/DVR] button, and press the [ON/STANDBY] button.
    “Clear” will appear on the display and the AV receiver/AV amplifier will enter Standby mode.

    Note that resetting the AV receiver/AV amplifier will delete your radio presets and custom settings.



    Let me know how things go

    I have tried that, I had the video signal of the onkyo set to THROUGH, and I have tried the reset thing by pressing vcr/dvr and standby. None of which helped

    Just as a test try turning the output down to 480i to see if this makes a difference

    tried that and had no change. I'm beginning to think it could be an internal problem of the receiver? I hope not

    It is possible that you had blown the output port on the Onkyo. Try connecting the output to another HDMI\DVI connection to see if you get any video output. If you do not then most likely you lost the output port.



    Note I have had a couple customers that lost the HDMI port on their PS3s. In most cases this happened after a storm and/or some kind of power surge on the power system in there house. The cause is most devices have a common ground and you will sometimes get a spike traveling back on the ground.



    Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

From the description of the problem being faced by you it seems that the HDMI cable is at fault and needs a change. Please do that.

  • jelousy49 Jun 01, 2010

    I thought the same thing but i used the same HDMI cable hooked straight from the cable box to the television and everything worked.

  • Rinoo Kumari Jun 02, 2010

    It seems that the HDMI component of your Onkyo has gone and needs attention of the service center. Please make a visit to the nearest Onkyo Service Center.

Try doing a reset. This cures a lot of problems. With the receiver turned on press and hold the VCR/DVR button and press "Standby". The display should read "Clear".

Onkyo TX-SR604 provides audio thru receiver but no video on Bravia LCD when satellite receiver signal is sent thru any of the Onkyo HDMI connections to tv, however if I connect up my Samsung DVD recorder...


easiest fix is to take all hdmi straight to tv. then come out of tv with optical cable to your receiver. that way what ever your watching will automatically be sent to the receiver thru optical. you even will get dolby dig. also you can have audio from your tv when you dont want to use your surround. keeps receiver on one input also.

Onkyo TX-SV 727 PROTECT mode


Generally, this happens when there's a loose connection somewhere, either internally, or with the connections. It usually happens when the volume's too loud, and it tries to protect itself.

I'd suggest you unplug everything from it, check all the speaker wires, and then try turning it on, without any devices connected to it.

If it works, turn it off, and reconnect devices, one by one. That should fix it.

If not, it's likely that there's a loose solder inside, and it needs to be sent out for service.

Set-up problem with sound and speakers


I sent this TX-SR605 system to an authorized dealer for repair. It seems like it is a very simply problem - the internal set-up mic jacket closed circuit, so the system think the set-up mic is always plugged in (even when physically unplugged it, the system still detect plugged in). And it enters the automatic speaker setup and never quit.

Now I have the receiver back home and tested it. Everything worked O.K. now. It is a pity that this new-bought equipment (just one month) need repair for just a small action of plug in a mic ( I swear I plugged it in very tenderly). It is shame for such a unreliable performance happened on brand name like ONKYO. How can you be confident for an equipment failure in one month.

New home theater setup- no signal at tv using onkyo tx=sr605


Could well be the quality of your cables. if you have high end cables the consult a service agent. if you have the cables that came with the products, go and get some better ones.
