20 Most Recent Onkyo HT-S3100 Receiver Questions & Answers

It sounds to me that some part of the circuit possibly an IC is overheating after several hours and develops a fault.
This will be a very tricky thing to track down. So maybe best to take it to an authorised service agent.

No. If you hook up more than one speaker to a single output, you will drop the impedance that the receiver sees and probably blow the amplifier.

Hi, please find above your user manual, and below your service and repair manual. These will help you to workout what to do, and how to reset your system. Usually simply removing it from the power will reset everything, except fro NVRAM entries, but the Tape is not one of them, so i wonder if you may not have some other sort of problem, use the service manual to check.

Palaboy is incorrect. JBL Control 1 speakers are 4 Ohm 150 watt speakers. He's probably thinking of the Control 1x speakers which are 8 ohm 80 watt speakers.

If you hook your Control 1s to that Onkyo, it won't sound great and could cause the receiver to overheat and trip the protection circuit if played at high volume.

Impedance must be matched to have a better sound performance. Althought, it has no problem b/w 4 Ohm and 6 Ohm impedance-it still work but the system may get hotter due to impedance mismatching. You can try and see how the sound goes.

If you have the original remote
check the display button or dimmer button.
If you don't get any illumination from the display screen, that means that display florescent is at the end of life needs to be serviced.
