One way or another, it sounds like the amp has blown. Probably the outpous and/or drivers and such. Perhaps one of the speakers was either shorted, wires touching or hooked up wrong.

Onkyo ht-rc180 standby light blinks will not start.i tryed factory reset, still blinks


The amp protection circuit has been activated. Remove the power cord from the wall outlet immediately. Disconnect all speaker cables and input sources, and leave the AV receiver with its power cord disconnected for 1 hour. After that, reconnect the power cord and reconnect an input and a pair of speaker wires onto the unit. If the receiver still does not turn on than you will have to bring it in for service. Turn up the volume and if the receiver doesn't shut down, power off the receiver and add another pair of speakers. Power up the unit again and turn up the volume. If it doesn't shut down, power off the unit again. Now connect all your input sources and turn on your receiver. If the unit shuts down again, your unit will need to be further serviced at an authorized Onkyo service center.

Cable TV blinks on and off when connected to my Onkyo receiver.


I have the same problem.  It only occurs with my HD DVR (HDMI cable), not my blue ray (HDMI cable), or my xbox and wii (component video).  Video and audio cutout is random and drives the family nuts.  I am desperate for a solution.

Last night I finished hooking up my new Onkyo 7.1 HT-S5200 system. I used three HDMI cable to connect my TV, Blueray, and cable box. I upgrade the speaker wire to 16ga. The system is plugged into a Monster...


Turn everything off but the receiver. If it stays on turn another one on and see if it pops off if not continue. Most receivers have a pause start to prevent power surge. If it continues remove the protector and try the unit alone.

Onkyo ht-r500 no speakers attached goes directly into protect mode, standby light blinking..


I have a HT-R520 - First thing stated in the manual is 'Do Not Apply Power to the System Until All the Speakers Are Connected to the Receiver.' This practice avoids any hot connects to the speakers. As with any high-outpiut system connecting spreaker wires to the system while in operation can spike the speakers as well as the amplifier curcuits. Hook up your speakers first and give it a try. Good Luck!

I have the Onkyo HT-S5100, the 5 speaker are set


also, you might have to search through the menu of the receiver, and set the surround back speakers to be zone 2 instead of using the 7.1 configuration that is probably default.

i think zone 2 will only play sources that are hooked up with analog connects, ie. red/white cables. try using the radio to see if it works. you might have to hook up your cable/sat box, cd player, dvd player, whatever you have that you want to listen to with both digital and analog cables to get everything to work right.

Onkyo HT-R530 with powered speakers


I would not suggest hooking up powered speakers to your receiver. Only if unit has sub woofer output can you hook up powered speaker

Remote controller codes


Go to Onkyo's website http://www.onkyousa.com/. rest the cursor over the support button at the top of the page. Adrop down menu will appear. Select owner's manuals. Select receivers on the new page. Select the manual for your model (HT-R530). It is a PDF file. At the bottom of the manual will be a section about the remote with the codes.
