Your sound might not be working because the HDMI and optical audio inputs might not be working.

I made the mistake of buying the Onkyo HT-560 and in less than two years all of the HDMI video inputs started intermittently breaking. Sometimes when you selected the channel both the image and the sound would not come though.

Also the rear speakers stopped working from time to time and I have to run the setup again to get them to turn back on.

I am not sure that Onkyo was ready to introduce this technology, it has been a nightmare and my stereo is going to cost almost as much as I bought it for to fix it.

Oh and there customer service was no help, they just told to bring it to an "authorized service center for repair". They had also had no idea where there was one in my city it took them a day to get back to me.

The Onkyo HT-S5100 looks almost identical to the HT-560 not sure if they are different in anyway.

Stay away from Onkyo in the future! I know I will.

have you tried to reset it to factory defaults yet? If it has a vcr button on the front, then hold the vcr button and press power...it should say reset on the front. Might not help, but worth a try.

There is no sound coming no matter what source


Have you checked the speaker select switch on the front of the receiver? "A" "B" or "A +B" or "Off". Sounds simple, but it happens! If you still have an issue post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot some more.

Power will not stay on


Activated protection circuitry means that the amplifier is seeing conditions it does not like and is shutting down the power to prevent further damage.
Either you have a short in your speaker wires, in your speakers, or a blown amplifier.
Disconnect both speakers and turn on the amplifier. Does it still give the error message? If it does, your amp is blown. If it does not, carefully inspect your speaker wires and their connection. Make sure all looks good and reconnect the speakers and try it again. Still get the error message? You likely have a problem in your speaker cabinet(s).

If you look at the manual, there are steps detailed to reset the receiver. This usually happens if the receiver becomes very hot. Try resetting and you should be okay.
The other problem is short circuit on the speaker wires. Check the speaker wires again.
