Cutting off and stayin in Stand by mode

I just bought this thing a couple of days ago and I had the sound on it one 1 hr from watching TV. It immediately shut off and went into stand by mode.

I try to turn it back on and it shuts off within 10 seconds. What have I done wrong during the initial hook up.

Thanks

To me it sounds like you might have blown a channel(s). The speakers that you are using with unit, did they come with it? If not you need to check the ohms of the speakers. It looks like the Onkyo HT-SR800 can only handle a minimum of 8 ohms. If your unit is under warranty definately send it in for repair

Santo dp32649 want to hook up surround sound but sound won't come thru speakers in TV mode


If you expect the sound to come back through the HDMI connection when watching the TV as the source, e.g. using an antenna, then both the TV and the surround sound processor need to support Audio Return Channel (ARC), a feature new to HDMI 1.4. Further, most TV's even if HDMI 1.4 compliant support it on only one of the inputs - check the setup guide. To accomplish the same thing with older equipment, simply run a separate audio connection from the TV back to the surround sound processor.

MY ILIVE SOUND BAR KEEPS TURNING OFF WHEN WATCHING TV


I'm having the same problem. I don't think it has anything to do with the Sleep settings, you can play with them all day & the only benefit you may get is forcing it to stay on for 90 min or whatever instead of 15.
(I've tried setting to 00, obviously the first thing that comes to mind is that it's a Sleep Setting issue, but I seriously doubt this. You can't even set the Sleep Setting to 15min anyway)

Instead, I'm pretty sure that the problem exists in the sound bar not recognizing that there is an active signal & is shutting off due to what it sees as inactivity (timing out after use). I've come to this conclusion due to multiple complaints of the same problem.

Some people are reporting that it's not happening when they watch movies, others have tested & said the radio stays on as long as you like, a couple people have posted that theirs works fine & only shuts off when they turn off about 15 minutes after they shut off the audio source, which leads me to think that this is what is going on, the system thinks the audio source (TV, Bluray, etc) is off & no sound is coming through. It must have a funny way of detecting it...

I will try a few tests & if anything works I will pay the results. One person claimed there's stayed on after turning their TV all the way up... I could try this but will have to turn TV speakers off (currently I am running both TV speakers & sound bar). Anyway, I'll keep digging, must be some way to get this to work, I hope...

I bought a Vizio sound system 5 days ago! The sound works, but light will not come on. Any thoughts on why?


If you just bought it 5 days ago and your having an issue I would recommend returning it immediately. That is your best course of action if you believe the product is defective.
thank you,

The audio keeps going in and out and cuts off. Also I have other devices going into aux in but it doesn't show 5.1 surround it only shows the front L, Front R, and CT speakers in stereo. I want everything...


If you are playing a source that is Stereo such as FM Radio or a CD the sound will not use all 5.1 speakers unless you enable the correct Surround Mode. On the remote there is a button on the lower right of the remote that says SURROUND. You can toggle through the various surround modes with this button the mode you want is Dolby Pro Logic The Pro Logic mode uses the built-in circuit to steer the Left, Center, Right and Mono Surround channel audio signals and uses all five speakers to play both stereo and Dolby Pro Logic program source, such as TV and VCR. You can use this mode with any stereo program source (such as VCR/TV) to enjoy multi-channel sound experience.

STAND BY MODE


We had a similar thing (after using it for 4-5 years). After haveing it on for e few hours
some resistance or condensator or so gave a sound (bang) and it went back in the stand by mode. Now it really broke , while showing in the screen "F61" which means that there is something wrong with the eletricity supply. Well, we will start from there with an official repair man. Let you know what it takes to get it repaired. Frasha
