Question about Onkyo TX-DS484 Receiver
I just recently purchased a big screen tv and reconnected my receiver to it and my dvd player. Now that I have done so it seems as though I can't get sound to stay on with the receiver anymore. It seems as though there is a short somewhere because as you turn the volume up the entire system just shuts down. We have check the wires and they all seem to be connected properly and none of them are touching, but we were wondering if there is something else that we can do. Thanks for your help, Sterling/Katrina
SOURCE: Volume goes down to nothing
hi, the problem of your receiver is in the amplifier section the idle current is not working that is why the volume fades and the protection relay click to avoid further trouble of your receiver,you need repair technician to solve your problem.

SOURCE: Humming sound on cable setting
have you tried to input another audio source into the audio inputs on the reciever that the cable box outputs are going into on the reciever ?
you may also need to ground the recievers frame and cable box frame to earth ground.
you also may have a bad connection in the wires or jacks for the audio connections
or the cable box audio out circuit needs repair

SOURCE: my receiver keeps shutting off
most of the time this is an over heating problem with the unit. Make sure that it has proper ventalation around it. It could also mean that the fan is shot on the unit . You could try using a can of compressed air in it to free up some of the dust that has accumalated inside of the unit. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Locked up Onkyo TR-505
FIXED!!! YES, i kept researching and came across a guy that said a button my be pressed, so press all the button on the front display and make sure they all click. I had punched mine a few months ago when it locked up so i had to take it apart and fix da broken buttons, but i clicked each one on the circuit board manually and VOILA it works again, just wish i hadn't got mad and punch it. Man i hookin it up right now and watching a high definition movie in DOLBY SURROUND SOUND....here is post that i found

This is a very common problem on Onkyo's DVCP704 and DVCP706 dvd players but sometimes happens on their receivers too. What happens is it hangs the cpu and it sits there waiting for that one of 3 or 4 'key' lines to go back high before it will accept any other input signals. If this is the problem and whatever shop you take it too finds it readily it shouldn't be to pricey but that is alot of 'if's' n'stuff.
Keep in mind this is a long distance diagnosis and there are a number of things that could bring on this symptom.. That's just the most likely imo.
Try pressing and releasing all of your front panel buttons once one after another. Once in a long while I see a receiver that got bumped and the plastic button the user actually touches gets caught in the down position holding the tact switch depressed. This will cause the same symptom.
Each should have roughtly the same feeling as you press them.

What happens when you take out the DVD and try playing it again? Does it play
