IF and only if, your receiver has connections labeled as "pre-out" can it be connected to an external amplifier.

If it does, then you connect from the left and right channels from the receiver, to the left and right channel on the amplifier.

Connecting directly to the TV is ideal....but then you would have to connect the audio through coax or optical unless the bluray player had an additional HDMI out.
So...what connection is going from the receiver to the television when it does not provide picture? If you do not have HDMI, DVI or component video going from the receiver back to the TV then you won't get a picture. However, you may not also get a picture if the video output resolution is adjustable in the receiver as well and does not match...make sure that the TV is set to the same resolution as the receiver, and that the video output of the player is also set the same.

I would forget the TV for now. I would use another input source to confirm where the problem is. I would hook up a CD or DVD player to it and check that the speakers are working as they should. If they do work, you may have a bad cable from the TV. Or the new TV is not set for surround sound. It may be as simple as selecting the proper decoder from the TV menu.

Goof information. Have you eliminated or proven the Onkyo as a cause by going direct to the projector? Try another Input and/or Output. It's best to know which component is broken and if it's limited to a specific subset of its function.

Settings are also indicated. Run through the video setup again. If it just stopped, what preceded it?

1-check your input cables from connected equipments(cd player or dvd p
layer or any other media source).
2-adjust your input signal level(from-10 db to 0 db).
3-amplifier power must be bigger than total power of all loudspeaker with 20%----(if total power of loudspeaker is 8 watt amplifier must be 10 watt.

On your remote control, first press the "RECEIVER" button followed by the "SETUP" button.

Here is a link to the user manual (bottom right corner of page): http://www.eu.onkyo.com/products/TX-SR605.html

From page 70 onwards it is explained how to set up the speaker levels.

Alternatively you could of course adjust the volume on the subwoofer itself. Most (active) subwoofers nowadays offer an output volume adjustment.

Good luck.

Unless you hear the speaker relay click about 6 seconds after powering on.
Chances are it needs output transistors and a few resistors. $100 is a fair price. they are not the most tech friendly things to work on ( no removable bottom panel ) you must remove everything except the front panel and power transformer to access the bottom.

I have a TX-SR505 and the same thing has been happening on mine since I bought it. I am also hooked up to a Panasonic Plasma, using the optical cable to the receiver. It's been perplexing me. I have noticed it typically during commercials, not during normal programming. If I turn up the volume on the Panasonic TV, I can hear the audio, so I know it's not a problem with the over the air signal. It must be something wrong with the reciever. Would love a fix to this!

the reason why the receiver probably keep turning off is that the systems come with overload protector to keep one from burning or short the systems out so it shut its self off. make sure you have the speaker wires is connected properly, its very important that you do although the receiver has 0% tolerance when it come to speakers hook up. positive from speaker to positive connector behind reciever; same as negative. double check all speakers wires. repost if that not an issue

HI, this is a reset procedure that this unit is trying to initiate. there has been a surge of some sort that the system has survived but, there is some lasting damage as well that has resulted in a slight programming error within the mother board.

This unit has a program that was installed at the manufacture. it runs the basic operations. there has been some major damage that is causing the internal program to stall and reset itself. the only way to reprogram is to send it back to the manufacture or, you can locate a local repair depot through Onkyo. the Onkyo techs are the only option when re programing is needed.

If you didnt change any of the inputs going to the onkyo. I would check the input setup. I dont know what input you have your pc connected to on the onkyo, i'm guessing that your using a hdmi cable. make sure you have hdmi selected as your input type not component video or any other. That model doesnt upconvert anything to hdmi. Also some dvi-d to hdmi dont play well wih onkyo.

HDMI must be hooked directly to the TV and optical or digital coaxial to the receiver. Your receiver has 1.1, 1.2 or 1.2a HDMI firmware and hardware. There is no fix for this issue w/out a new receiver that has 1.3b firmware. All receivers on the market have this issue, not just Onkyo. HDMI comes directly from HDMI. And there customer support !@#$%^&*()!!! Sorry for the bad news! but that's the fix. Hope this helps.

zone 2 will only work with analog sources so if your dvd, cable and other devices are connected via HDMI, that alone won't work. What you need to do is hook up RCA (red and white) cables from the dvd player to dvd in of the receiver and same thing for your satellite box (and other sources.) no need to change any setting on the receiver. This way, the HDMI will take care of your main room speakers and the RCA will feed your zone 2 speakers.

Hope this helps.
