I have had this receiver for years and have noticed that I have to reset the speaker settings for volume evertime I power off and power on. It maintains the receiver volume settings and all other settings, but the invidivual channel settings for each speaker are not saved. I believe I am doing something wrong and its probably not the receiver. I can not find my manual so any suggestions would be great, thanks.

Hi, if this has not been resolved please try the following reset:
To do the reset you need to turn the receiver on, then on the front panel of the receiver press and hold the "VCR/DVR" button while doing that press the "STANDBY/ON" button.You will see the word "Clear" in the display screen and the receiver will go into standby mode.PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR AUDIO & VIDEO ASSIGNMENTS ON THE RECEIVER PLUS YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR SPEAKER CONFIGURATIONS, SPEAKER DISTANCE AND ALL LEVEL CALIBRATION SETTINGS.YOU WILL ALSO LOSE ANY PROGRAMMED RADIO STATIONS IN MEMORY.Once the receiver goes into standby mode turn it back on and go thru the setup menu for all custom settings, Thanks, JT
I don't have a fix but I think the general explanation that could explain both issues would be that the memory for your settings isn't being retained. Check to see if the digital audio source you're having trouble hearing still has its input assigned to it. I'm thinking all your settings go back to 'factory' when you turn it off.
I had this happen to my unit shortly after I purchased it. When I turned the receiver on there was a loud pop through the speakers, the red light on the front started blinking and the unit failed to produce sound.
A tack worked its way through one of the speaker wires, causing a short. I replaced the wire and unplugged the receiver for an hour. It's worked well for the past two years since this issue.
If you haven't done so already, check all of your speaker wires and plugs on the receiver and the speakers. You may have a damaged wire or metal-on-metal contact somewhere. Try these steps:
1. Unplug the unit and disconnect all wires and connections. Let the unit sit for an hour.
2. Check all cords for damage or crossed connections.
3. Reconnect the power cord and set the volume to minimum. Turn the receiver on. If it stays on, shut it off, unplug it and reconnect everything, taking care to ensure that speaker wires and/or plugs don't make contact.
4. Plug the receiver in, set the volume to minimum (it should already have this setting after step 3) and turn it on.
It sounds like there is a short somewhere in either the wiring or the receiver. This caused the popping noise and activated the receiver's protection circuit. If it's a damaged wire or plugs or wires making contact, you can reset the unit with the directions above, replace or separate the wires and all should work. If the issue is within the unit, you'll have to contact Onkyo directly.
if the volume controls of the speaker is set to 100% together with the volume control on your computer then still get a low volume,try some other device where you can use your speaker like mp4,if still got same problem,bring it to a service center there might have a problem with the amplifier.
Could need to be reset. Try unplugging it for a couple of Min's. it may reset itself. If not send me a message and I'll check the service manual for the reset procedure on Monday when I go to that hell they call work.
Not a suggestion, but I hope there is a solution.
Recently bought an LG HDTV that has a setting that should increase the voice over the background. If it does, I can't notice the difference. I guess they can probably measure it electronic.
I've had your same complaint for years, without a good solution. Best so far is to use headphones.
I have no idea why film people add all the extra noise. Most of it is not even real.
The problem is with the actual eltromechanical element on the volume control, my avr 300 does this as well and I'll let you know the secret to avoiding it. There are small indents on the volume control as you turn it, if you leave it half way between indents, it will periodically start reading volume changes, if you're lucky it will go down, if you're unlucky by the time you've noticed it act up your speakers are blown. When you change the volume, make sure the control rests in an indent and the problem will never crop up again. A simple solution if you're the only one that uses the receiver.
try turning the unit off in standby mode then hold down the enter button and then the power button for about 10m seconds that should reset the unit depending on how new the unit is it sometimes has a digital saftey setting but i doubt that would cause it to do what you are saying
