Please always turn off your system befor any connection----clean contact points of socket(the place where you put your jack)with any contact cleaner-connect your cable again and turn power on and try in low volume and increase the volume gradually until you get good sound-----if all above failed you will have hardware problem inside your receiver and can fix through field technician

I hooked up a Niles speaker switcher to my pioneer vsx 521 k receiver.I tested it and immediately there was a smell and the receiver powered off . It won't come back on, is it a fuse or have I rui


The audio outputs have been fried, plus the main fuse blown. The power transformer will need to be checked for a open primary, I suggest you get a estimate first. My feeling is that it will be expensive.

Speaker output shorted no sound and hot electrical smell. Sub still has output.


You should see the damage to the part (perhaps even smell it too) which will need to be replaced. I suspect it will be on the big heatsink and perhaps connected to the channel which was shorted out. Check the internal fuses too.

Onkyo receiver fried after hooking up to pc


I am not used to count colors or numbers on wires, but what you did is that you created an oscillator, by hooking up the output of the receiver and ran it through your computer which inverted the phase, so the thing oscillated and committed suicide. Onkyo used to make some good impact printers, before the modern inkjet came around. If your unit is within warranty, don't hesitate to go where you bought it and ask them to re-imburse you. Receivers don't blow up just like that, because someone hook a wire wrong. One of the specifications is to check just that: phase reversal and oscillations...

Front buttons won't work


The microprocessor may be locked up. While pressing and holding "video 1", press "speaker A". When "clear" appears in the display, the micro has been reset to the factory default condition. To do a full reset without taking it apart, it may have to sit up to 3 weeks for the backup battery to run down.
