You have to use a step down transformer with this set and not a converter. The AC household voltage in Inda is 220VAC. Your set is designed to work on 120VAC. Therefore a 220VAC==>120VAC step-down transformer is needed to feed it. The onkyo has transformer inside, and it should get 120VAC; atleast 5AMPS current capacity. AN inverter cannot synchronised with this set. You can either buy it from Inidan electronics spare part market, of can be winded by expereiced transformer winders. Never give any inverter to this set, as some Onkyo models will have Torroid transformer inside, and it will take a tremendous amount of current at start-up, and make either your Onkyo of your converter to get damaged. OK.
There shouldn't be a battery inside but a super capacitor that is supposed to keep the station memory...may be the capacitor is defective...it should be located on the tuner/radio board and may have a high value such as .47Farads at 5 volts...you may need a tech to replace if you have no working knowledge of circuits , but if you do , you should be able to obtain one at radio shack...they sometimes call these capacitors memory backup capacitors
Turn everything off but the receiver. If it stays on turn another one on and see if it pops off if not continue. Most receivers have a pause start to prevent power surge. If it continues remove the protector and try the unit alone.
the reason why the receiver probably keep turning off is that the systems come with overload protector to keep one from burning or short the systems out so it shut its self off. make sure you have the speaker wires is connected properly, its very important that you do although the receiver has 0% tolerance when it come to speakers hook up. positive from speaker to positive connector behind reciever; same as negative. double check all speakers wires. repost if that not an issue
The receiver automatic speaker set-up set the sub volume at -12 and since it was not getting any signals from the receiver it was doing what it is supposed to be doing (going to the standby mode). This was troubleshooted by Onkyo tech support on a Sunday. All the best about Onkyo customer support.
All you have to do is to do a factory reset on everything, but I thing mostly on your 605, but I would do it on the TV as well. I think what had happened is after I set everything up for the first time, it worked great. As the days when on I started to play with all of the futures the 605 and the TV had to offer. I was turning them on and off to see what everything did. What I think I did was, I turned on something in the 605 that the TV did not know how to cope with. If I had to guess, I think it is the Lip-sink feature (Spelling?) in the 605. Anyway disconnect everything, look in your manuals of the TV and the 605 to see how to do the factory reset on both. Then turn your TV on. After it does it’s start up for the first time (again), start connecting the 605. It has been working great for me after I did this. Do not count on help from the people you bought it from or the people who made it. This stuff is so new they do not really know how to fix it.
I sent this TX-SR605 system to an authorized dealer for repair. It seems like it is a very simply problem - the internal set-up mic jacket closed circuit, so the system think the set-up mic is always plugged in (even when physically unplugged it, the system still detect plugged in). And it enters the automatic speaker setup and never quit.
Now I have the receiver back home and tested it. Everything worked O.K. now. It is a pity that this new-bought equipment (just one month) need repair for just a small action of plug in a mic ( I swear I plugged it in very tenderly). It is shame for such a unreliable performance happened on brand name like ONKYO. How can you be confident for an equipment failure in one month.
All speakers and lines OK? Sorry for basic approach!! Protection is supposed to work when speaker outputs are loaded under recommended Z. speaker Z is a setting too ... along with several other paramenters. Also, re the "last return" ... Maybe the back surround speakers were turned off in settings? Again, apologies if you've tried all this basic stuff. I've just bought one of these amps and have probs with the FM tuner not tuning anything. Mmmm. Back to the shop?? Cheers, Chris
