Not worth repairing until the root cause of the failure is proven.
The reason being is that you can have it happen again if caused by any of the devices attached to it, such as inefficient speakers.

How can I hook up BIC F12 subwoofer to Onkyo TX-DS838 receiver? Will the receiver power the subwoofer and other speakers?


Get a RCA cable and connect from your amp where it said Sub Woofer in the Pre Out box in the back of the amplifier top left hand side and take it to the "Sub In" located in the back of your Sub woofer bottom right hand (White round connector).
Good Luck!

Betreffende receiver TX-DS838, heb melding in uitleesvenster PROTECT


Dit betekent dat de versterker een fout heeft opgemerkt.
een aantal oorzaken zijn als volgt:
- een te hoge temperatuur, dit zou na een half uur afkoelen zijn verholpen.
- interne software fout, deze zou na 5 min zonder spanning verholpen zijn.
- een kortsluiting in (een van) de luidsprekers, alle luidsprekers loskoppelen kan zekerheid bieden.
- een defecte stuur of eind trap.


helaas is in de praktijk het laatste de meest voorkomende oorzaak en dient de versterker te worden gerepareerd.

My onkyo tx-ds838 motor fan do not move


The fan in those Audio System only turns at about 1/4 to 1/3 of the ride of your volume control.
It had been intentionnaly designed like that, to achive a quiet operation at low hearing volume.
But if the fan don't move by cranking up the volume at 1/2 to 5/8 of the volume control (with speakers on). You need to have the fan or the fan power circuit checked by technician.

TX DS838 WHEN TURNINGVOLUME DOWN UNIT MAKES A POP SOUND


Sight unseen my money says the new problem is a direct result of the 'repair' to the channels that are giving you problems now. You didn't elaborate on what it was you were trying to fix in the first place. Backtrack your steps and undo what you can to see if the bug changes.

Onkyo TX-DS838 Issues


The problem here is that the output amplifier section has a problem. This is detected internally and the system shuts down in a "protect" mode. The output section really only kicks in when you attempt to bring up the volume. Another possibility is a problem in the "front end" where DC current is being passed to the amp section. Without takeing measurements, it is difficult to determine the exact cause. This should be a relatively stright-forward repair for a service shop and should cost about $20-$40 in parts plus the local labor charge.
