Question about Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver

FM Frequency Steps

Hi,

I got a US model on a visit. The FM tunes in 0.2 MHz steps and odd frequencies ending with 0.1, 0.3 etc which means I cannot listen to even stations such as 95.0.

Can I reset it to 0.1 or 0.05 MHz steps ?

Hi,

Appreciate the "Ask Me" and my compliments on the choice of an Onkyo TX-SR605.

Onkyos are not very common in my country. Often, they are imported from the US and since we follow US broadcasting standards, there would be no need for modifications particularly with the tuning steps.

To my knowledge, most manufacturers would be coming up with a single model but with:

  • variations of the firmware to suit the region/country of intended use; or
  • a service menu where the country/region of intended use is selectable; or
  • jumpers/bridges in the logic circuitry.
Simply, this is similar to having the unit with a voltage selector at the back for 120, 220 and 240 or an auto volt 100~240.

As to your concern, pls check:
  • if there is such a feature in the menu to change regional settings (the user manual may have this information);
  • firmware update, but rather than select US, pls select one appropriate for India;
  • a service manual where the logic circuitry would be shown and if there are movable jumpers/bridges for the selection of intended region/country (warranty may be void).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

DEH-P7900 BT US model. Isthere any way I could change the tuner frequency to european one. Thanks.


The DEH-P7900BT is almost identical to the DEH-P85BT sold in Europe.

This is a US model and will tune most AM/FM stations in the UK/Europe. The FM broadcast band is 87.8 to 108.0 MHz. so it will not pick up any FM stations outside this range. Also, the tuning is in odd increments (such as 96.1, 96.3, 96.5, etc.) so some stations with even frequencies will be slightly distorted, depending on the power of the signal the station generates.


I found this bit of info for you but ill keep looking and let you know what i find out.
Also have you tried it in europe to see if it does work or not let me know ok

Marantz 2220b does not play in stereo in fm mode. i doxed all pots, & knobs, adjusted pot 304 but no dice. fm light is good, lites up on aux settings


Do you have an antenna attached to the receiver? If you don't, it might not be getting a powerful enough signal to pull in stereo. Also make sure that the mono button is not pressed or faulty.

Can only receive forgein channels


See the swection on "Listening to the radio" on page 24 of the manual...


http://www.retrevo.com/support/Onkyo-TX-SR500-Receivers-manual/id/365ag205/t/2/

You can switch the AM band tuning steps between 9 kHz and 10 kHz.

The initial setting is 9 kHz. Please set the AM tuning step frequency to match the AM band tuning step frequency in your area.

USA and Canadian models 10 kHz

Other models 9 kHz

Press MEMORY while holding down TUNER.
Note: All the preset stations are erased when you switch the AM band tuning steps.

How do I preset the tuner for radio stations. I've never had a problem doing this with any other stereo. But what I think should work isn't!


Not very specific. Do you have the manual?

The following is from a VSX-03TXH manual. It ain't pretty but it may help.

I'm posting it in multiple parts due to space contraints.

Chapter 6:

Using the tuner

Listening to the radio

The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and

AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and

manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the

frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a

station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can

memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving

station presets below for more on how to do this.

1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.

2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or

AM), if necessary.

Each press switches the band between FM and AM.

3 Tune to a station.

There are three ways to do this:

Automatic tuning

To search for stations in the currently selected band,

press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The

receiver will start searching for the next station,

stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for

other stations.

Manual tuning

To change the frequency one step at a time, press

TUNE ?©/??.

High speed tuning

Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.

Release the button at the frequency you want.

Improving FM stereo sound

If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when

tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press

the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono

reception mode. This should improve the sound quality

and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.

Using Neural THX

This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to

achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.

• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.

Need to change FM frequency steps on Yamaha RX-495 Receiver


I don't know how to change the tuning step from .2 Mhz to .1 Mhz, but whatever you do - don't adjust those tunable slugs! If you are told to - I would be very suspect of any procedure that says you must. Those types of coils are adjusted by a threaded iron core that when turned by the slot on top, either raise up from or slide down into the coil. Furthermore, use of a metal screwdriver is a big no-no to make those adjustments. Specially made fiberglass tweaker tools are used to adjust or tune these iron slugs, and often require special equipment (o-scope, DMM, etc) or other specific detailed procedure for proper setup. Fiberglass is used as it does not interact with the iron slug like a metal screwdriver would (appearing as more metal) by affecting the magnetic field of the coil. It has nothing to due with electric shock protection. Good luck!

Why wont it play???


Hi Jacqui h,

I assume this is a RF system that inputs through the FM aerial.

The instructions should give you a specific frequency.
You will have to tune the radio manually to this frequency and select a pre-set number.

Manually tuning the reciever


you should be able to tune in manually.
press tune
press fm or am
press d. tuning
enter the frequency of the station 4 or 5 digits ie 9370 or 10450

another thing to look into would be getting a yagi fm antenna, they are directional and although you may have to rotate it for best results, they work great.
