Question about Onkyo TX-SR504 Receiver

1 Answer

Two of the 5 speakers work on test but not for actual sound

After configuring and testing all 5 speakers (which all 5 worked great on test) I set the TV to an action movie and found that the right front and the left surround speakers do not produce any sound. Can you help me?

    Changing to Multi channel mode turned off all the speakers. Is there another option?

    Thank You

You probably have to set it to multi chanal mode , while tv is most stereo the receiver has to decode that to 5ch

Hi! I have purchased a JAMO S608 HCS 3 and a SUB 650 using an OKYO TX-SR508 Receiver. I can't set it up correctly. When I played music I've heard a lot of bass, I think there are some high...


The TX has speaker setup and test tones for setting the balance and distance with test tones and proving the hardware works. If that all works the difference is probably external or settings.

What is different between the music source(s) audio and the HD movie source(s) audio? Ask yourself, how would a sub make high frequencies go missing? It can't.


Your other speakers are responsible for conveying the high frequencies.

One speake is not working


The sound MAY BE turned down to zero using the Windows sound program/Mixer . Go to START - CONTROL PANEL - HARDWARE AND SOUND - MANAGE AUDIO DEVICES - and double click on the speaker icon then check the BALANCE control it should be set a 100% for both left and right. Click CONFIGURE and TEST the speakers.
If that doesn't work you have either a bad plug (on the speakers or on the laptop) or one bad speaker or the plug is not fully inserted or the speakers a just incompatible with the laptop. You might test the speakers on another computer.

No sound from Rear Speakers


Ok, so we know the connections are correct, the speakers all work properly.

The only other thing I can think of is: is your PC actually sending signal to the rear speakers? Have you set it to 5.1 surround, and are you playing something in surround sound? The best way of checking (personal preference) is use some kind of racing game, reverse into something and you'll get a broken window effect in the rear speakers.

So, check to see if your PC is sending the rear effects, double check to make sure the actual speakers work (you could plug an MP3 player into the rear speaker input.

If this doesn't help, feel free to reply.

Windows 7 Audio Quadraphonic Not functioning well


Sounds like you are getting quad sound in the test process that checks them, yet when in windows media player or winamp (or whatever) your rear speakers aren't producing sound: Try setting your sound drivers to do something like "speaker fill" then you are set. I'm under the belief that stereo sounds aren't being matrixed into all 4 speakers.

Rear speakers don't work


Speaker test confirms whether the speakers actually work but not the sound level you have them set at. Chack volume level of each speaker. This may be a separate button all itself.
