Question about Onkyo TX-DS777

1 Answer

Digital sound failed for all channels

My DS777 recently started acting up, at first the digital signals stopped coming out of the speakers, and then a few days later as I was troubleshooting all sound ceased to come out of the speakers.

I pulled the unit from my shelf and let it sit for a few weeks. I sat with it today and ran a signal from my MP3 player into it through the CD and TAPE inputs. Using the headphone jack I was able to get a signal only if I turned the volume all the way up.

It appears that the amplifier circuits are toast. Any other ideas? Replacing this unit is going to cost a lot and want to try what I can before I give up.

THANKS!

If the amp circuit is "toast", you will not get any sound. Get unit serviced

Recently I bought a Harman Kardon HK 3770 Stereo receiver. My question is " can I use a Bose 901 Series VI speaker with this receiver?, since I plan to buy a 901 S VI speaker.. The receiver has no tape...


From the description of the Harmon Kardon, it sounds like you should be able to use the speakers, but you will not be able to use the active equalizer. The equalizer is designed to be cabled into the tape monitoring loop and allows you to listen to the equalized signal coming back into the receiver. Attach the +/- speaker wires to the right and left channel speaker connectors on your receiver.

Are the speakers selected for A or B or AB check the speakers by using a 1.5 volt batter on the cable going to the speakers, if you get a sound from the speaker, you know they are ok, if not, speakers are faulty.

I have an Onkyo tx ds777 model and I can only get sound to come out of the front speakers on direct mode. Stereo or any type of surround sound produces no sound at all. I have tried with my mp3 player...


You don't say if all speakers work with the setup procedure. THAT is step 1. Then try FM as it doesn't require any cabling. Then move on to more complex sources like external analog, then digital (and make sure to assign the ports).

Rear speakers do not work


Make sure of what audio mode you've set your receiver to, as well as what the source audio signal contains.

Some modes, such as Dolby Digital/Pro Logic will adopt the input format, and subsequently use only the front left and right speakers if there are no LFE/Center/Surround channels present. Setting the mode to Pro Logic II or IIx, on the other hand, will force a signal to be spread out to the various extra channels.

Using the Automatic Field Detect mode will usually provide the most appropriate solution for the input signal, otherwise.


Also note that if your audio source is from a PC and you are playing games, some games will, when you are using the digital output of many sound cards (most notably the Sound Blaster Live! and Audigy 1-2 and Audigy SE model cards) output only stereo as their signal, but still in a digital format. Your receiver will pick this up as a stereo specific signal and avoid using the subwoofer, center and surround channels.

Unfortunately, for those cards, there is no work-around beyond using analogue output or getting a more recent, better compatability sound card, as it is a limitation between the drivers, the card and the game in question, rather than your receiver that has the issue.

If the above doesn't help alleviate your issue and/or you could clarify on what your source audio is and whether you encounter this issue with all source-types or not, please post a follow up response.

The sideview mirror lights and windows have


I am pretty sure it is the body control module. My 02 sable is currently having a similar issue. On a random day my girlfriend took the car to the store, the car started honking when she went to re-enter the vehicle. never done that before. Later that night the left front turn signal will not shut off. the turn signal light on the dash stays on solid, this morning the bright light indicator was on solid and the turn signals worked perfectly fine until the blinker light eventually went back to on all the time. I disconnect the battery at night or if I am not going to drive it for a few hours. But I am 99% certain it is the BCM causing this.

Denon AVR-682 center channel has no output


You may have had the receiver set to "Stereo" mode, or Analog instead of "Digital" or "Auto" (automatically switches to digital when it detects a signal) modes. Also, setting it to "Direct" (2-channel from an analog source) could result in loss of center channel. Or your Surround Parameter dial (on the higher-end Denons, at least) could be set to a 2-channel mode.
Finally, if your digital inputs are incorrectly assigned (e.g., COAX1 instead of OPT1, or OPT2 instead of OPT1) for that source, the receiver will use the Analog signal which is stereo-only. You could get a center channel via Dolby Pro Logic II but it would be a "matrixed" signal, not the "real" center channel you could get via digital input using Dolby Digital or DTS.
(If all else fails, re-check your center channel speaker wire connections. It's very unlikely, but also possible, that either the receiver center channel amp or the speaker has failed.)

Boston BA7500G Speakers with no sound.


Well we have eliminated the laptop as a problem,.. that is very good. As far as what the problem with your BA unit is,.. we only know that it does not function with an external device (laptop and mp3 player). you already mentioned that a sound test from the unit plays through all the speakers,. right? With that lets start with the most basic item that will cause this problem,.. the cable that comes from the BA unit and plugs into the laptop or mp3 player. Is the cable plugged into the right place on the BA unit? Does the cable disconnect from the the BA unit? if so, do both ends of the cable look the same or is there 2 ends (maybe red and white) that plug into the BA unit? Please let me know when you can and we can continue troubleshooting this.
