WHEN RUNNING TV OR DVD THROUGH RECEIVER YOUR AUDIO CABLES NEED TO RUN FROM "AUDIO OUT" ON TV OR DVD TO "AUDIO IN" ON RECEIVER.

MAKE SURE THE RCA JACKS ARE RUNNING FROM "AUDIO OUT" ON TV OR DVD TO "AUDIO IN" ON RECEIVER.

MAKE SURE THE RCA JACKS ARE RUNNING FROM "AUDIO OUT" OF TV TO "AUDIO IN" ON VIDEO 1 ON RECEIVER, THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE SOUND...(IF THIS IS BACKWORDS YOU WON'T HAVE SOUND.) THAT'S HOW OURS IS HOOKED UP AND WORKS PERFECT.

I haven't researched to actual manuals for your equipment, but I'm guessing that the optical may be disabled when the HDMI is used. You could try using the component video outputs to the TV and then the optical to the Onkyo.

May not help, but I had the same thing when I turned up the volume.. off it went.. then I found my two surround sound speakers had the wires shorting. Looks like a safety switch if there is a problem. Could check if the wires are crossed, shorted, and/or thick enouch to handle the volume.. test it by just having the stereo speakers enabled. Cheers,

When a receiver does this, it is know as the "protect mode". This keeps the receiver from causing more damage to the components in it, by shutting it off when it detects an abnormal amount of voltage or current.

If you had to replace the fuses, it is most likely that you have a blown channel in the receiver.

You put 8 amp fuses in, so I hope that the fuses that blew were 8 amps as well. If you put fuses in that are higher rated in amps than the ones that blew, you will most likely cause more damage to the unit than need be. If the fuses keep blowing, please stop putting new fuses in again until the unit is repaired. Every time a fuse blows, it is because of too much current is going thru the unit. Having too much current is a very bad thing for electronics, it causes components to short out and sometimes even catch fire if the fuse is higher rated than it is supposed to be.

To find out just what parts will need to be replaced, you need a multimeter and then you will need soldering tools to remove the bad parts and put the new ones in.

When an amplifier channel gets blown, there are normally around 5 to 10 parts that will need to be replaced. If you do not replace every single bad part in the channel that has blown, you will most times blow up all the new parts that you just put in.

If you have no experience with electronics, you really should take it in to a service center for repair. If you are willing to try it yourself, let me know and I will guide you thru the troubleshooting steps to help you identify all the faulty components.

Onkyo is very well made equipment and is worth getting fixed.

A blown channel can normally be repaired for around $100 to $150, just depending on the shops rates and the extent of the damage.

Let me know if you need more help.

Do you have unit in surround or Pro Logic mode?

Onkyo HTR500... | Answered on Jun 01, 2008


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.

Cheers

Has anyone found a solution for this problem? My unit starting clicking off to standby once in a while and now does it all the time.

more than likely blown amp transistors on 1 or more channels. use an ohm meter to check resistance of the transistors.

yes, if you use the S-Video output on your laptop to the input on the receiver, then another S-Video cable from the Monitor Out port on the receiver to an S-Video port on your TV. Then select the appropriate source on the TV and receiver.

Be reminded that this receiver will not convert the signal from S-Video to composite video (the yellow cable) nor from composite video to S-Video.

Also be reminded that S-Video will pass only video, not audio. You need a seperate cable to go from a 3.5mm headphone stereo jack to 2 RCA composite audio plugs.

You do not worry about the DVD player, any brand of DVD Player has compatible for that system because the output of all DVD player has already synchronizing the output impedance of the DVD to the input of your system. And you are looking for the best resolution of DVD player so you can try either sony, jvc, pioneer.and many more, but the best thing you can do is to bring the sample CD that you already know the picture and then you can try to play into the DVD that what you have selected.
