Question about Onkyo Audio & Video Receivers

2 Answers

I have an Onkyo TA 2090 that has the play button continuously flashing on and off. Usually the play button flashes for just a second and then becomes operational. Now when it powers up the play button flashes continuously and the controls do nothing even though everything is lit up. Is there a reset button in the deck? Thanks

I think there may some voltage variations or it can be due to the circuit failure

SOURCE: I have an Onkyo TA

Cassette decks do not have a reset button, the only way to do any type of a reset would be to let it sit unplugged overnight. I don't think this would help anything. The microprocessor in it is not the type that would require a reset but it won't hurt anything to try.

Since this is an older model (but very good one), it is very possible it may have some bad solder connections. It was intermittant at one point, having this problem but then playing. That is a sign of bad solder, but it is no guarantee. As solder get old and has a lot of wear from the unit being played it can degrade very slowly, causing an intermittant failure that eventually is constant. If you are good with a soldering iron you could try reflowing any solder connections that are not shiny and silver or have rings. The problem could be much deeper than that, but without having it in front of me to trouble shoot, it is really just a guessing game right now. There may be several different things that can cause it to do what you described. All of those things would require some good electronic troubleshooting skills to isolate.

Since this is a quality piece of equipment, it would be worth getting fixed. It would be difficult finding one this good at the price you would pay for a repair.

If I can be of any further help just let me know.

Dave

How can I get my onkyo remote control (RC-693M) to control my Sony LCD tv?


Manual says: 1. While holding down the REMOTE MODE button for the mode in which you want to use the command, press the [ON] button. *** Hold both buttons down for 3-4 seconds *** 2. Press the button you want to learn the new command 3. Point the remote controllers at each other, about 2-6 inches apart, and then press and hold the button whose command you want to learn until the Remote indicator flashes. *** Hold them level with each other, 2-3 inches apart, and don't move them at ALL while you press the button on the old remote *** 4. To learn more commands, repeat steps 2 and 3. Press any REMOTE MODE button when you've finished. *** If the command was learned correctly, the remote indicator will flash *SLOWLY* twice - about a 1 second blink, and the red light will remain on. If the command was NOT learned correctly, it will blink twice *QUICKLY* - about .5 seconds, and the red light will go off. *** If the red light stays on, you're golden - keep going until you get to a button that flashes red quick and the light goes off. Some of the buttons I programmed took 6-7 tries in exactly the same position to learn.

Audyssey vs Direct switching on Onkyo SR606


Audyssey is the licensed feature this receiver uses for room and dynamic equalization. It sounds like the Audyssey process is activated. The manual says the Audyssey indicator "flashes during automatic speaker setup".

Has this unit ever worked or are you still setting it up?

Hi I have an Onkyo TX-SR304E. When I try to play music via a dvd/cd player, it lasts for about 20 seconds then shuts off with the STAND BY light flashing on and off.When I try to turn it on , off it goes...


The unit is in protect mode. A problem was detected in the final stage of the amp and the unit shuts down to prevent further damage to either the amp or speakers. Check the speaker wires to be sure that they are not crossed anywhere. If with the sepaker wires disconnected, the amp still enters protect mode, the problem is internal to the amp. This is usually defective output transistors. Expect a parts cost between $15-$40.

Re-Onkyo :

I'm not an owner of Onkyo but in my Denon owners manual it mentions
"reainitialization of microprocessor" basically resets all to default .
Not sure if your reciever is new just out of the box or used ?

Just a bump in the road
