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

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.

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.

We had a near lightning strike and now my tv (sanyo model ht27744)doesn't want to come on.


Lightening may have caused a surge on your power lines to the house and to the outlet the TV was on.
Do other things work on that outlet? If not you tripped a power breaker.If they do work check this.
Unplug the TV for 2 min or more and plug back in.
Try bypassing your surge protector you had it plugged into. It could have died when the lightening struck.
(no surge protector?) Bet you'll buy one for your next TV.
Look for 3000 joules and up rating for a surge protector and insure it has protection for a cable/antenna input too.
If this doesn't work the TV may be fried or internal fuse blown.
Time to take it to a repair shop or depending on it's age (5 years+) it may be time to buy a new TV and surge protector.
Near Lightening strikes can effect appliances from several inputs that could be affected from outside like Power, Cable, Antennas, Phone Lines that come into your house.

Lightening struck nearby and the tv went out. Now


Obviously the tv took the hit but the dvd player was spared. check and replace the fuse in the tv if it's open. If this does not fix it then get an est and file a claim with you homeowners insurance.
