20 Most Recent Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver Questions & Answers


The Kube Sub-woofer is earthed via its 3 pin plug. The Onkyo and other components I have in my system are not (they are double insulated). During normal operation, a difference in electrical potential can exist between these components in the system. I found that this potential was finding a path to earth via the audio cable and on through the subwoofer's earth. The path was via the earth portion of the audio cable and so gave the hum irrespective of volume levels set either on the Onkyo or the sub.

The fix is to ground the Onkyo to the sub. I used a length of electrical cable between a panel mounting screw on the back of the sub and a screw on the casing at the rear of the Onkyo. Try it out with a piece of cable manually touching screws with the bare ends of the cable until you find ones that give continuity( the hum will go immediately). I then crimped a small fork end electrical fitting onto each end of the cable which can be slid under the slighly loosened screw head and resecured. All I hear now is the fan on the Blu-Ray player!

Hello, I am sorry about your issue. Are your cables longer that 15 feet. If so that could be the issue. Press and hold the game button for several seconds. It should change back to game. Thank you, Onkyo USA

Hello, I am sorry about your issue. Have you tried the other inputs on the receiver? Thank you, Onkyo USA

main board fault, its input feed on the board might be failing, it could also be a failing capacitor, you would need to open it up to have a look and see if there are any capacitors failing.

Hello, I am sorry about your issue. Did you make any changes to the output resolution on the Wii. The output must be at 480i for the receiver to up-convert to HDMI. If there is a problem with the receiver I suggest a work around by connecting the component [red,blue,green] video outputs to the TV and the audio connections [red, white] to the receiver. Thank you, Onkyo USA

I am sorry about your issue,. If the reset did not resolve your issue the receiver would need to be serviced. It if was purchased from an authorized seller less than 2 years ago it would be under warranty. Thank you. Onkyo USA

If you can't resolve the issue yourself, try resetting
the AV receiver before contacting your Onkyo dealer.
To reset the AV receiver to its factory defaults,
turn it on and, while holding down the [VCR/DVR]
button, press the [ON/STANDBY] button. "Clear"
will appear on the display and the AV receiver will
enter Standby mode.
Note that resetting the AV receiver will delete your
radio presets and custom settings.

There is a Onkyo recall or service program being offered. I'm not sure if your unit is included, but here is a site to check the serial number to see if it's qualified:

Hi AB, best way to accomplish this would be to go from the TV's audio output to any open audio input on the 606 and just be sure that you assign the source to the input. If you require further assistance please feel free to give us a call at 800-229-1687, also note that we offer a trade in program if you are looking to upgrade to a newer receiver, please email me your current units serial number and I will advise if it qualifies for the program. You can email me at askOnkyo@us.onkyo.com, Thanks, JT

Please be sure that you have turned on RIHD in the setup menu under Hardware and HDMI as that will set ARC to AUTO. Please also note that you will want to make sure that the HDMI cable going from the output of the receiver is connected to the HDMI input on the TV that shows ARC. If you require further assistance please feel free to call us at 800-229-1687, Thanks, JT

Perhaps you just use a cable like this:

24806182-o2xiqwfhpbqb50rejnrszwmj-1-0.png use the tulip plugs and plug them into the AUX of the amplifier. Then at least you can play the music via the receiver.
