Question about Onkyo TX-8211 Receiver

1 Answer

Onkyo TX8211 I think I had a power surge in my house about 6 months ago. The following week, the receiver would go into protect mode in intervals if I had it turned up only a tenth of the way, then it would just not turn on at all. After I got around to replacing the a/c fuse, the stand by light would come on but if I click the power button, the fuse is immediately blown and nothing happens. I'm hoping it's not the transformer or fused circuits. May be the power supply board?

The most likely problem is shorted output transistors. This is a straightfoward repair for any shop that works on audio gear. Expect a parts cost in the $40-$50 range.

Had a power surge and now my Onkyo TX-SR607 will not power on. Only get a constant click sound. Any repair advice?


although power surge can trigger activations of protection circuits,

there are at times, damage is done before it is activated.

• Check first for low power supply regulators,

then check for possible output stage failure.

let me know if you need further assistance!

After my house was it by lightning my Onkyo


If your receiver was connected to any power source and that power source was not a surge protector strip there may be damage to the receiver as lighting travels. Another thing to consider is the fact that many people will put their equipment on surge protectors but the cable is still connected to the TV etc...This is just another avenue for the lightning to get into the home and blow up your system. I always disconnect any cable from my computer and TV. The power source from the wall is also unplugged when there is a storm just to be sure. Surge protectors are limited in their use as well. I don't believe they can take too many lightning hits. It is best to change them out.

I have the Onkyo TX-DS656. The problem is that the power is on, but I get no sound. House was struck by lightning and had a bit of a surge. All other functions seem to work just fine. Rumor has it that the...


The unit is in protect mode because a problem was detected in the output section. In all likelyhood, the output transistors have failed or a secondary power supply hs failed. Because this was the result of a power surge, I would suggest that you take this to a sericer and request a detailed repair estimate. This could be as simple as a voltage regulator gone bad to the microprocessor being fried. This is not a problem that can be diagnosed remotely.

DX-C390 turn on


Use a surge protection power strip (such as the Power Protect AV 600 by Monster Power).

This will elliminate erratic behaviour of the unit, since even minute fluctuations in the power source from unbridled house current will affect the sensitive internal components of the Onkyo DX-C390 6-Disc CD Changer.

Stuck in protect mode


i believe protect mode is because you have the wrong impedence speakers, they are too low (4 ohm? 6 ohm?) it chols work with 8 ohm speakers
