Question about Onkyo TX-SR304 Receiver

Receiver Shuts down at 45 level

When I am listening to either my DVDs or CDs my Onkyo TX-SR304 receiver powers off. This powering off normally occurs when I have my volume between 45-50. I have 15 year old Sony speakers as my front speakers, 2 rear speakers and a center speaker connected. One sales rep from an electronics retail store says it is that the receiver is too powerful for the speakers. Another sales rep says just the opposite, that the speakers are too powerful for the receiver. I've only had this receiver for a month. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you! ps. What would adjusting the individual speaker volumes do for this situation? I have a surge protector but one sales rep suggested I get a new one costing $149 that is especially made for Home Theater systems.

I was having a similar problem and I found that the positive and negative speaker wires were touching on the speaker connections made in the receiver.

Before I bought anything new, I would check a couple of things: 1 - Is there a problem with heat buildup? Receivers can put out a lot of heat, and if it's in an enclosure without adequate ventilation it can cause problems. 2 - Does the receiver have a switchable impedence setting for speakers? If so, make sure that the impedence matches. 3 - Is the speaker polarity correct? Make sure that the + and - on the receiver matches the posts on the speakers. To rule out problems with speakers and connections, you can try disconnecting all the speakers and running the receiver to see if it shuts down.

How to program remote control?


Your Onkyo TX-SR304 receivers remote (RC-645S) is not capable of controlling devices by other manufacturers. It controls only Onkyo devices.
Other Onkyo remotes do have universal remote functionality and you can download Onkyo remote codes here.

I hope that helps.

I have a onkyo tx sr304 and a onkyo 6 disc player dx-c390.When my cd gets to disc 4 and 5 it shuts the receiver down.Whats up with this?


The only possibility that comes to mind is that it may be causing a short somehow when the carousel gets to that position, maybe a broken solder joint. Another possibility is that there may be a foreign object stuck inside the player such as another disc that lost it's position.

Need codes for universal remote


Not sure if this helps, but I just called Onkyo with a request for codes for the SR304. They said the only codes they have are for THEIR remote. Maybe they will work with yours. Here they are:
0276 0476 0810 1187 1376.
I tried these in the Comcast remote (adding a 3 in front of the numbers) but that didn't work. Still trying to get my Comcast remote to program the Onkyo SR304 adequately, since their published codes only partially work.

Volume on my Onkyo Receiver


Yes it is. I have the 705. My room mate has the 605. Both AVR's will not have appreciable volume until 50 on the dial.
The dial in not linear. I don't know of anyone who has plotted the scaling of the volume control yet.
I have found much useful user info on avsforum.com. Owners post Q&A based on experiences.
Search the forum for "official onkyo TX-SR605" thread.
Some comparable info may also be found under the "official onkyo TX-SR705".
