My onkyo 805 shows the headphone engaged symbol in the display and they are not hooked up. All i did was push the setup button on the front of the unit when this problem showed up. I have tried the reset clear function with the vcr/dvd button and the power switch and this did not clear the problem. On the setup step 2 for the speaker setup does not sho up the steps go from 1 to three . Is their any thing I can do to clearthe headphone engaged symbol. YES I DID POWER DOWN AND DISCONNECT FROM POWER FOR SEVERAL HOURS.

Jerry, I would suggest a reset of the unit to clear this as it seems to be reading that the headphone input is being engaged. To reset the unit hold down the CBL button on the far right of the receiver. While holding that button down press the ON/STANDBY button on the top left of the receiver. It should say CLEAR in the screen of the receiver which indicates that you have done the reset correctly. The unit will then turn itself. Give it about a minute then turn it back on. If the headphone is still engaged then the unit would have to be returned if still within the return policy of the dealer. Thanks, FJD
Hi Shaun, the unit would have to be taken to one of our authorized service centers for repair as you have already tried the reset. Please follow the link below to our Authorized Service Center locator, http://www.onkyousa.com/Support/servicecenterLocator.php?source=globalnav, if you have any other questions or concern please feel free to email me at askOnkyo@us.onkyo.com, Thanks, JT
No speakers are selected if just headphone is displayed. Press the speaker button just under the power button. No station is tuned when auto muting is displayed. Hook up an antenna to the receiver or use a different source like a cd player.
You cannot rig up a blue tooth headphones to this receiver with out a blue tooth transmitter ( the Onkyo does not have one built in ). If you have a transmitter it can be plugged into the headphone out socket of the Onkyo ( in front ), just remember that it will cut out the sound from all your speakers when you insert the headphone jack . The advantage though with this connection is you can control the headphone volume using the Onkyo remote.
When your son pulled out the headphones he must have broke the auto pressure switch right inside of the headphone jack input (its most lickly just bent out of place making a contact that is telling the amp the headphones are still in! you can try to bend the contact back into place...but if it is broken it will need replaced (a cheap repair!)

First, check inside the headphone socket for something inserted. A common find here in Australia is a mudwasp nest also. They love to built inside this sort of hole. If that isn't it, spray some contact cleaner lubricant spray into the socket. I use crc 2-26. Then insert a jack plug in and out a few times to see if you can clear the problem. The socket has switching inside it that tells the amp the headphones are plugged in. These contacts may be dirty of have dry solder joints. Check the soldering about the socket also, resolder anyway if you have an iron handy. If all this fails, you have a faulty socket. See how you go and get back to me for the next steps if you cant get it sorted. Socket replacement is probably on the cards.
Well, My onkyo receiver was keep displaying "Phones Engaged" and no sound. All I did was plugged in a phones plug and remove it and for the last 2 weeks there is no problem.
I just happened to have a phone plug (without the actual headphone or wires) and that seems to fix the problem.
Hope it will work you all of you as well.
