No sound from sony dav-fr10w

First thing to check is the simple solution. Make sure you have the positive and negative hooked up correctly and also make sure that the wire ends are bared enough and that you have good clean contact in the snap terminal.

The system turns on for about 5 seconds and then

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Getting a loud hum only from video function.

Check your connections. Chances are you may have crossed the RED video cable and the RED audio cable.

Can the speakers be used with other Receiver?

Yes you can use the speakers and also the sub if it is a powered sub with a phono input,but be aware they are nowere near good enough for the Onkyo 706,look at the JAMO 102 sub and sats as a starting point if you have a small room,say 4meters x 5meters,or somthing from other good speaker companys to make the most of what is a hard hitting amp,but if you must use the speakers you have set the cross over to about 120hrtz to save the main speakers getting to much bass .

Hope this helps.

Sony wireless headphones have static...why?

The static you're experiencing with your Sony wireless headphones can be caused by various factors, including interference from other electronic devices, radio frequency congestion, and distance from the transmitter. Here are some things you can try to minimize the static: Move the transmitter closer to your headphones: The closer your headphones are to the transmitter, the stronger the signal will be and the less static you will hear. Reduce interference: Try turning off any other electronic devices that may be causing interference, such as microwaves, wireless routers, and cordless phones. If possible, move the transmitter away from these devices. Change channels: Some wireless headphones have multiple channels to choose from. Try changing the channel to see if that reduces the static. Check the batteries: Make sure the batteries in your headphones are fully charged or replaced if necessary. Reset the headphones: Sometimes resetting the headphones can help eliminate static. Refer to the user manual for instructions on how to reset your specific model. Contact Sony customer support: If none of these solutions work, you may want to contact Sony customer support for further assistance or consider getting a replacement if your headphones are still under warranty.
