a good fix is to use audio out from tv to reciever or use digital out from b/r player to reciever

Hello,i suggest you do an up close inspection of the speaker terminals,i often find a small copper strand of speaker cable is shorting between the positive and negative cables.You will want to inspect both outside and inside the cabinet ,while unplugged of course.

I assume you mean the subwoofer remains silent during the test. Perhaps the subwoofer is where we should be looking.

If you jack it into one or both of the Tape Out connectors and play some music with substantial low bass, does it make any sound? This would at least prove it is alive.

I am not clear about the configuration of your Onkyo receiver connections.

Are you watching channels from the cable box or a DVD in DVR on the TV through the Receiver? In that case have you connected the cable box and the DVR to HDMI IN inputs of the Receiver. How is the TV connected to the Receiver? HDMI OUT or component out, etc.

If the problem has started recently and you have not changed any setup on the Receiver, then it is possible it is loosing part of the setup memory which is a flash ROM. The good thing is that the receiver has 3-5 years warranty depending on where you are located. So do not try any repairs yourself and make sure you have the purchase receipt somewhere.

Try the factory default reset first and see if this makes any difference to the problem.

To reset the AV receiver/AV amplifier to its factory

defaults, turn it on and, while holding down the

[VCR/DVR] button, press the [STANDBY/ON] button.

"Clear" will appear on the display and the AV
receiver/AV amplifier will enter Standby mode.

However, this means you will have to reprogram everything - speaker setup, tuner setup, input /output connection assignment - the lot.

In case you need further assistance on this problem, then please clarify the connection setup you are using as I have mentioned at the top.

Please post a comment to confirm if this was helpful.

This is usually an indication that either there is a problem with the power supply or there is a short circuiting. I would advise you not to play the receiver as this clicking noise could cause damage to other internal components. You need to open the receiver and check for the faulty wiring or circuitry. Make sure that the receiver is getting appropriate voltage.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

You likely need a separate audio cable for the DVD player, depending on what inputs your are plugging into on the receiver.

If you are using the component video connections (3 VIDEO connectors usually Red, Blue, Green) this is just for the video. You likely need 2 for audio. Look for L and R connections near the other three connectors on both the receiver and the DVD player.

If you are using an HDMI cable, this will carry both audio and vido but you may need to go into a setup menu on the Onkyo and set it to AUTO input or choose a HDMI for the DVD input.

The Remote Code 1789 will both turn ON and also turn OFF the Onkyo TX-SR605 AV/Receiver. Many codes will either turn it on or turn it off, but not both. Code 1789 will do both.

Sorry even though you have provided a lot of detail about the components you have connected to the Onkyo receiver, I am very unclear about the configuration that is not working properly.

1. I will assume that when you connect HDMI output from COMCAST to Onkyo and then video pass-through HDMI from Onkyo to Sony TV then you are getting proper video on TV and sound from Onkyo. Is that correct?

2. I will assume when you connect the PS3 HDMI output to Onkyo with video pass-through HDMI from Onkyo to TV, then you are also getting proper sound and video.

3. I will assume when you connect the Apple TV HDMI output to TV HDMI input then you are getting proper sound and video from TV.

4. I will assume that when you connect HDMI output from COMCAST to Onkyo HDMI input and also the Apple TV HDMI output to Onkyo and then video pass-through HDMI from Onkyo to Sony TV you are getting no sound from Onkyo and only flashes of video on Apple TV. I am assuming you are using HDMI input 1 and input 2 to connect the COMCAST and Apple TV? Is that correct?

Are you aware that AppleTV does not support HD TV mode?
Please confirm if situation 4 is the problem you are having. Also is your Onkyo SR605 or SR705?
You have written 605 and one place and 705 at the other.

Will be happy to help you sort this out when you provide the clarification above.

does it turn off and then back on repeatedly at higher volumes? if you back the bass off will it allow you to turn it higher? if so i would think your impedance is off causing the amp to overheat or the power requirements for your speakers are way higher than your amp can produce

Onkyo TX-SR605... | Answered on Oct 12, 2010

Many people who use A/V receivers use them to switch only the audio. ie, hook up all your video sources to the TV, and switch between these sources using the TV remote. Just connect the audio cables from your video gear to the Onkyo. The reason is that video signals are more susceptible to problems in A/V receivers than audio signals. better to connect the video sources directly to the TV.

You may want to ask for more clarification about this.

have you attempted to unplug it and plug it back in 2 mins later--sometimes a hard reset is all thats required...

My SR605 gets extremely hot. This is especially true when both amplifiers are running together supporting 2 separate channels. I added a 2 way speaker selector from Russound that supports 2 sets of 8 ohm speakers on Zone 2 and the receiver shuts down at about 74 dcbs and gets very hot. Checked the jumpers on the selector and they are set at 8ohms.

Have returned the Russound selector to them and had it checked out. Appears to be fine. Even when Zone 2 is not in use the receiver gets extremely hot. It is in a wood cabinet wih glass doors but even with the door open the temperture is very hot. As the volume is raise the heat increases and the receive trips off.

Very unusual in my opinion. Is this normel for the receiver to heat up as the volume is increased.

Check the audio settings in the PS3 console. Then check the firmware version of HDMI that your receiver uses. It may be listed on the manufacturers webpage or in your manual. It must be 1.3a or 1.3b in order to work with your PS3. The downside to this is that there is no firmware "patch" to correct the problem. If you still have issues, post a reply on this thread and I can help you further and give you some options that "Will" correct the problem without degrading video and audio. Hope this helps.
