Hello. I am sorry about your issue. If the reset did not work then the receiver would need to be serviced. Thank you, Onkyo USA

The TX-8511 is an older AV receiver with only composite video inputs. Your DVD player may not provide this type of output as it's not capable of HD video. If your dvd player has a composite output with a Red, White & Yellow set of outputs, that will connect into the Video 2 inputs on the receiver. Your TV will need to connect up to the Video2 or Monitor output. You'll need a set of composite video cables with the red-white & yellow RCA type plugs.

Here is a link to the manual for this receiver:

I had the same issue... It turns out that there is light on the screen under the A and B speaker lights which said T-2 Monitor. This meant it was sending the sound out to the tape # 2 monitor... Hit the Tape 2 button and you are back in business...

Here you can get the owners manual for the unit if you need it; http://www.onkyousa.com/download/own_manuals.cfm?cat=Receiver For the protect mode to kick in only for some input sources, then there would have to be a fault in one or more of the pre-amp circuits - there will be a separate one for the radio tuner. Probably the solution for such a good unit is to contact the manufacturers and see what they have to say - probably they will suggest you send it in for service and i suspect they would be right - here are the contact details if you happen to be in the US; http://www.onkyousa.com/support/ or through this link if not; http://www.onkyo.com/ Hope this helps and you get an answer from them - it is probably fixable relatively easily and shouldn't be expensive for parts :)

Go to the manufacturers web site to find the universal codes.
Only if the remote is universal.

Good luck
