I had this hooked up fine in my house and brought it to the ofcie and cannot get any sound out of it. I checked all of the usual things, tried CD (hooked to an Onkyo CD player), tried AM radio...nothing. ANy ideas apreciated
Well, I'm sure you've either fixed the issue or gotten rid of the unit by now, but anyway... perhaps the speaker selection was accidentally switched (A or B), or my personal favorite: "Tape 2 Monitor" was turned on. Even if you select something else, you'll still see "Tape 2 Monitor" displayed on the LED display. Hit the button again and it will go away and your sound should return.

Same issue on a friend's receiver. I have checked and no signals from preamp pcb to main amp board, which is idling just fine, all channels. The day he brought in we checked it and it played just fine. I then took apart the faceplate to clean the display window and after that had it working for a day and a half while working on other stuff. He comes back a month later to pick up and now nothing. I have decided this is not going to go any further and just thought I'd share my findings. I think it's time we all move on.
The onkyo should still have a speaker A/B selector in the menu.
Check on the back panel for speaker A/B.
If it has or you decide to use Zone 2 you will need to set the sound programme to "stereo" so the rears and centre do not work.
You can still use a digital source.
You should be able to display the amp's menu on the screen.
Hook up "monitor out" (Yellow) via RCA connector to one of the "A/V inputs" (yellow) on the tv, this will show you a display of the menu and will make it eaiser to navigate.
Make sure your receiver is hooked up to proper AM and FM antennae. Try switching to AM, scan stations. If you hear AM static and/or weak signals the problem could be antennas are not hooked up. FM has AFT which blocks out weak or noisey stations and you wont hear anything without ant.
