Question about Onkyo TX-DS676 Receiver

1 Answer

Onkyo sound popping / protected shows in the display

Lightening recently struck near our home. My Onkyo receiver is plugged into a Monster 3600 power filter. However, after the lightening strike, my receive now generates lots of noise and popping when I turn the volume up. Also it will pop, then show "protected" in the display, and an internal fan comes on. Is my receiver cooked, or can it be repaired?

    I had an Onkyo receiver before with no problems until lightening got it. When I turn up the volume to medium, the system shuts off after a few seconds. I read that the regulator was bad. How do I get a new one installed?

It depends on what happened to the receiver. Have you tried to connect up the unit to the wall socket yet, without the Monster power strip? If that does not help you, and the unit still gets pops and goes into protect mode, you have an issue with one of the output stages in the amp. I'm afraid that this type of repair can only be diagnosed by a tech who knows how to trouble shoot solid state amplifiers. You may also contact Monster cable, as if you can get the tech to agree with you on the cause of the problem, most of the Monster Cable power strips come with a warranty against this problem from happening and will pay for the repair. Good Luck

My onkyo HT RC330 will not power up at all. Have had problems past couple of months with starting it but if you played around with swith it would start. Now nothing.


Try resetting the AV receiver To reset the AV receiver to its factory defaults, turn it on and, while holding down VCR/DVR, press 8 ON/STANDBY. "Clear" will appear on the display and the AV receiver will enter Standby mode.

It is possible that the protection circuitry has been activated. Remove the power cord from the wall.. Disconnect all speaker cables and input sources, and then leave the AV receiver with its power cord disconnected for 1 hour. After that, reconnect only the power cord and set the volume to maximum. If the AV receiver stays on, set then the volume to minimum, disconnect the power cord, and reconnect your speakers and input sources. If the AV receiver turns off when you set the volume to maximum, disconnect the power cord, and contact your dealer.

If the standby light is lit it and the unit will not boot it is most likely that the protection circuit has been activated. If there is no standby light then check the fuses. These units check that the power supplies are operating near specification. If a capacitor or resistor in the circuit, or a broken solder connection the unit will shut down. Because of the temperature the thermal cycling around the power supplies a broken solder joint can occur. This will make for an intermittent operation.

Hope this helps.

What is the likely culprit to troubleshoot on a tv that will not power on and there is no standby light after a lightening strike in the area and fried Directv recievers and tvs?


Hi , it sounds as if the av board is probably fried but it probably did not stop there it may not be worth getting it checked out as that's just another bill to tell you its not worth repairing. Take time to think about it. But get it checked if you wish there is a lot of power in a lightning strike. It could fry one board and pass through the next as they are usually connected.

Dehumidifier not coming on at all


I hope it is only the fuse, but lightening can damage lots of things.
If the dehumidifier has an electronic component, like a thyristor or worse an integrated circuit, it is likely that part is damaged.
So if it has something like a wireless remote control there is damage.
It is the very fast change in electronic field caused by he lightening, what will induce a current in the electronic equipment causing the damage.
Als read ESD (ElectroStatic Discharge) and EMP. Although the change in EMP is much faster than in lightning.

Onkyo HT-RC360 The receiver has a clicking sound when powered on. then turns off


No! I'am afraid not, if you have checked your wires carefully and it checked, the audio output semiconductors will require a technician to remedy the problem.

Twice now our router has failed to work after lightening strikes. The UPS means its lights still flash etc but the router itself does not work. Why does the UPS not protect it and what do we need to do...


A UPS is generally not designed or manufactured to protect against lightning strikes and / or power surges. Its purpose is ensure that whatever it is supplying power to does not turn off in the event of a power outage. You would be better served by getting a lightening protection strip from a hardware store that comes with insurance against damge from lightening and power surges. Alternately at substantially more cost, you can have an electrician or lightening protection contractor install whole-house lightening protection. Lightening protection strips with insurance included are relatively inexpensive.

Had a storm lightening struck something lights went out came back on but router dosnt have solid green light just flashing orange light modem dosnt see the router but if i plug in to laptop bypassing...


It appears lightening has damaged your router. Do you have a surge protected powerboard and do you plug all your computer equipment into this powerboard?
If you do not have a surge protection board, I suggest you install one to protect your equipment.
