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

"Dspng" what does this mean it comes on when i turn on my jvc receiver. I have no sound from my speakers used the same speakers on a different radio and they worked fine Rx6040 is no longer good


This could be a message indicating that the digital signal processor is defective or that digital signal processing has failed. In either event, it is likely that your JVC receiver is not working correctly.

Tx-ds777 no sound from front speakers on a speakers work on b but if I run a and b the center and surround stop working


Hi MJ, If you run your B speakers you will drop your 2 surrounds as the B speakers are meant to be used in a different room. I would suggest that you give us a call so that we can try some troubleshooting, please call our Product Support Team at 800-229-1687, Thanks, JT

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).

Everytime I use the DTS functions to enable my surround sound, no sound goes to my speakers. I am able to use it only for the standard output with the left and right front speakers. What could be causing...


DTS should be enabled only if your source has a DTS digital audio out connected to the receiver.Mostly only DVD / Bluray players have DTS sound and is outputted through an optical or co-axial port on the back of the player. Its a multichannel digital encryption technology where the signal is sent through one cable and your receiver decodes it into 5.1 or 7.1 channels according to the source.

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.

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.)

I cannot get sound from a sony BDS350 (Blue ray


This must be configuration problem on the BD player. In this case receiver just outputs the signal it receives digitally. If it displayes PCM 2ch, that means it receives only 2 channel audio from BD player.
You can try to configure the BD player not to decode audio and to output the RAW stream over coax cable to the receiver. Then the receiver should get raw Dolby Digital encoded data and be able to decode it into 5.1 channels. It should also display Dolby D instead of PCM in such case.

No 5.1 audio


Make sure that the digital audio cable from the DVD player is properly connected to the unit, then step through the Onkyo menus and ensure that the digital connection you used for the DVD player is properly associated with the DVD player's video input.
