Question about Onkyo TX-8511 Receiver

1 Answer

I relocated and rehooked up my TX 8511 receiver. It ran good for several minutes and then shut down. It will not show a display or operate. I checked the speaker wires and found two that were reversed. I've disconnected all speaker wires and power for at leased an hour with no results when powering up. Onkyo support had me reset the unit by depressing and holding "video-1" and pressing "speaker A". I get the "stand-by" indicator to light and the "MR Off" indicator to light, but still no display or anything else. Thanks for your time. Mk

SOURCE: Powered Or Unpowered Subwoofers For Onkyo TX-8511

Greg- Powered subs are better than non-powered subs (also known as passive subs), anyway I see the TX-8511 has no sub pre-out on the back panel, so you need to decide what sub you will use and run from the receivers left and right speakers output into a subwoofers speaker in from speakers then back out to speakers, look at the back of a subwoofer and you will see like 4 sets of speaker hookups 2 in and 2 out, what this does is takes the low end or bass and drops the signal to the subwoofer then takes the mids and highs out to your left and right speakers, unless your regular left and right stereo speakers have large woofers a sub is the way to go.

Just check your speaker cabling again. Make sure that all of them are seated properly, none is touching each other or the body of receiver. Rewire if necessary..
Are you using banana plugs for connecting speaker or just directly. Some times even a little tiny wire touching the receiver could trigger the protect mode. Be careful, since protect mode is sometimes not fast enough and it could blown a few trasistors in the power circuit.

Otherwise, do your bose speakers play out load on other systems?

SOURCE: Connect the receiver to a Samsung LN32A450 TV?

I have a model LN32A330 which is probably has connections similar to yours. I'm not home right now to check whether it has a digital output, but I know for sure it has an analog audio output available. You can run that output to an available auxiliary or a/v source input on the receiver and that will work for you. That's how I have mine connected. If the set has a digital output and the receiver offers digital inputs, that's another connection possibility. The digital output on some brands of TV only works in conjunction with the tuner, and may not always have output. The analog method is guaranteed to work.

If this solution has helped get you on the way, please take a moment to give it a fixya rating. Thanks for asking here!

SOURCE: using my onkyo tx-8511 with my sonos

Yes this can be done. Both the zp80 zp90 has analog outs that can run to and input (CD input) on your receiver. You can also use the optical out and keep the signal 100% digital all the way up to the receiver. The zone players can also be programmed to be line level out (fixed audio) or variable audio out. If you pick fixed then the receiver volume control must be used. If you use variable out then you will want to set the volume on your receiver at a level you never want to exceed then use the Sonos to control the volume.
Good Luck

How to connect Sony dvd player to onkyo TX-8511 receiver


The TX-8511 is an older AV receiver with only composite video inputs. Your DVD player may not provide this type of output as it's not capable of HD video. If your dvd player has a composite output with a Red, White & Yellow set of outputs, that will connect into the Video 2 inputs on the receiver. Your TV will need to connect up to the Video2 or Monitor output. You'll need a set of composite video cables with the red-white & yellow RCA type plugs.

Here is a link to the manual for this receiver:
