I have the cable connected to the back and the power on. The power light comes on, the recieve light comes on, but the send light just blinks. What does that mean?

Each time you go to a different web site it's like making a phone call. When you click go your PC basically calls the web site and the web site has to answer the call. Watch the light closely and see if it only blinks when you are changing web sites. I'm not positive but it may be blinking when you change sites.

Most likely, you have DC Offset(a bad amplifier). The unit is shutting down to protect your speaker system, as well as protect the unit from any further damage. If you require more assistance, or would like to inquire about repairing your Onkyo, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there. Thank you.

You have an internal short in your receiver could be power supply or most likely a output transister. There is a code to the blinking red light check your manual it may list the number of blinks with problem. However its not a simple fix. plus make sure HDMI cable is unplugged when reseting receiver if this cable has a short it may cause it to. Sorry to hear the bad news, nice receiver
GOOD LUCK....

SB5101 Modem disconnects randomly


That sounds more like a bad cable signal than a modem problem - can you get to the modem status page (It's normally visible at htpp://192.168.100.1) - and see what the recieve signal level is?

3 light on last two blink


The first light, I assume is on constantly, is power/connection, and the two that blink will be Rx and Tx, Rx = recieving data sream, Tx = sending data stream, even if you think that nothing is being transmitted, "static" is sent/recieved to maintain your connection.

Best to call up the cable company and go thru the phone prompts...you may just find that they're having trouble in your area...
They can also send a reset signal to your modem too.
Give em a call..

Your modem is not synching. It could be a number of possibilities, and you're going to have to do some troubleshooting to narrow it down.
  • Verify that your AC, Cat 5, & ethernet cables are connected securly
  • Verify that your modem is not in "standby" mode
  • Power cycle your modem
  • Try a different cable outlet
  • Call your ISP to make sure your modem is provisioned and your service is set up for cable internet.

Modemwon't connect


Try restarting the modem several times. If that doesn't work, try leaving it plugged out for about 20 minutes and then plug in and try again. If all this doesn't work, you need to call the cable company and get them to resolve this.
