the L/R surround speakers are mute on all play modes execpt for white noise calibration mode. even in speaker calibration mode the reciever doen not pick them up and auto sets them as 'none' when they are as loud as hell.

check your speaker wiring, make sure both terminals are connected properly. or could just be left speaker is disconnected. and is set in stereo mode which will only play left and right front and Sub, if you have one. try chaning the surround mode to play in multi channel speaker which will send sound to all speakers. i trust your using a Digital audio cable from your source ( cable box, DVD player) if your using analog audio cable you will only get stereo sound, and nothing will ever come out of the rear speaker unless you change the surround mode to multi- channel speaker. also in the setup menu you should be able to perform a speaker setup, make sure all your speakers are able to produce sound. follow speaker setup mode in menu, make sure you have checked the boxes or Yes to speaker you have in your system. then perform calibration and a test tone will come out of each speaker as you select them.
Did it ever work properly? If not, let's get down to basics and set it up for the simplest configuration it can have: FM source in stereo with front left and right speakers, no Surround Mode, no DSP, no Tape Monitor, no Mute, Volume not turned all the way down. Does that work?
Do you have Surround Speakers defined in System Setup A? If not, only Dolby Surround or Off are valid Surround Modes.
Is T2 Monitor indicator lit? Press the Tape-2 Monitor.
Is there acceptable sound other than during Speaker testing? NO? Is MUTE On?
I was able to solve this problem by using the "A" speaker jacks and eventually I pushed the right buttons to get the Surround mode to turn ON. I believe it was when I hit the Parameter Selection button that allowed the surround mode to become active.
Did the speaker cailibration work on the speakers in question?
If YES, then the program material or settings you're using don't require the rear speakers.
By "Back" do we mean Surround or Surround Back? Surround Back speakers are the 6th and 7th channels in the 7.1 matrix. Not all source material has programming for them. But when using any 7.1 digital surround mode you can get anything, even stereo recordings, to output something from every speaker.
when the stereo or mono listening mode is selected only front speaker and subwoofer produce sound--------make sure that speakers are configured correctly. and you select surround sound in listening mode.
I have the same problem with my Sharp Lcd and Onkyo 804. I believe one problem is that the TV can not accept dolby digital or dts digital audio signals through HDMI. It will play sound if it receives a PCM signal through HDMI. You can try switching the type of signal on the cable box settings and on the dvd player. I switched to PCM and got sound through the TV and the receiver. The problem is that PCM is usually only a 2 channel signal and Dolby 5.1 will sound better through the surround sound theater system. I have not found an absolute solution to this yet, but I am willing to not get sound through the lousy TV speakers in order to get top notch sound through the Onkyo.
