Servicing is required when the apparatus has been
damaged in any way, such as power-supply cord or
plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects
have fallen into the apparatus, the apparatus has
been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate
normally, or has been dropped.
15. Damage Requiring Service
Unplug the apparatus from the wall outlet and refer
servicing to qualified service personnel under the
following conditions:
A. When the power-supply cord or plug is damaged,
B. If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen
into the apparatus,
C. If the apparatus has been exposed to rain or
water,
D. If the apparatus does not operate normally by
following the operating instructions. Adjust only
those controls that are covered by the operating
instructions as an improper adjustment of other
controls may result in damage and will often
require extensive work by a qualified technician
to restore the apparatus to its normal operation,
E. If the apparatus has been dropped or damaged in
any way, and
F. When the apparatus exhibits a distinct change in
performance this indicates a need for service.
16. Object and Liquid Entry
Never push objects of any kind into the apparatus

this unit.
17. Batteries
Always consider the environmental issues and follow local regulations when disposing of batteries.
18. If you install the apparatus in a built-in installation,
such as a bookcase or rack, ensure that there is adequate ventilation.
Leave 20 cm (8") of free space at the top and sides
and 10 cm (4") at the rear. The rear edge of the shelf
or board above the apparatus shall be set 10 cm (4")
away from the rear panel or wall, creating a flue-like
gap for warm air to escape.
Precautions
1. Recording Copyright—Unless it’s for personal use
only, recording copyrighted material is illegal without the permission of the copyright holder.
2. AC Fuse—The AC fuse inside the unit is not userserviceable. If you cannot turn on the unit, contact
your Onkyo dealer.
3. Care—Occasionally you should dust the unit all
over with a soft cloth. For stubborn stains, use a soft
cloth dampened with a weak solution of mild detergent and water. Dry the unit immediately afterwards
with a clean cloth. Don’t use abrasive cloths, thinners, alcohol, or other chemical solvents, because
they may damage the finish or remove the panel lettering.
4. Power
WARNING
BEFORE PLUGGING IN THE UNIT FOR THE
FIRST TIME, READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY.
AC outlet voltages vary from country to country.
Make sure that the voltage in your area meets the
voltage requirements printed on the unit’s rear panel
(e.g., AC 230 V, 50 Hz or AC 120 V, 60 Hz).
Some models have a voltage selector switch for
compatibility with power systems around the world.
Before you plug in such a model, make sure that the
voltage selector is set to the correct voltage for your
area.
Setting the [STANDBY/ON] switch to STANDBY
does not fully shutdown the unit. If you do not
intend to use the unit for an extended period,
remove the power cord from the AC outlet.
5. Never Touch this Unit with Wet Hands—Never
handle this unit or its power cord while your hands
are wet or damp. If water or any other liquid gets
inside this unit, have it checked by your Onkyo
dealer.
6. Handling Notes
• If you need to transport this unit, use the original
packaging to pack it how it was when you originally bought it.
• Do not leave rubber or plastic items on this unit
for a long time, because they may leave marks on
the case.
• This unit’s top and rear panels may get warm
after prolonged use. This is normal.
• If you do not use this unit for a long time, it may
not work properly the next time you turn it on, so
be sure to use it occasionally.
Memory Backup
The AV receiver uses a battery-less memory backup
system in order to retain radio presets and other settings
when it’s unplugged or in the case of a power failure.
Although no batteries are required, the AV receiver
must be plugged into an AC outlet in order to charge the
backup system. Once it has been charged, the AV
receiver will retain the settings for several weeks,
although this depends on the environment and will be
shorter in humid climates.
For British models
Replacement and mounting of an AC plug on the power
supply cord of this unit should be performed only by
qualified service personnel.
IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance
with the following code:
Blue:
Neutral
Brown: Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this
apparatus may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as
follows:
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to
the terminal which is marked with the letter N or
coloured black.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to
the terminal which is marked with the letter L or
coloured red.
IMPORTANT
The plug is fitted with an appropriate fuse. If the fuse
needs to be replaced, the replacement fuse must
approved by ASTA or BSI to BS1362 and have the same
ampere rating as that indicated on the plug. Check for
the ASTA mark or the BSI mark on the body of the fuse.
If the power cord’s plug is not suitable for your socket
outlets, cut if off and fit a suitable plug. Fit a suitable
fuse in the plug.

Notes:
• The remote controller may not work reliably if the AV
receiver is subjected to bright light, such as direct sunlight or inverter-type fluorescent lights. Keep this in
mind when installing.
• If another remote controller of the same type is used in
the same room, or the AV receiver is installed close to
equipment that uses infrared rays, the remote controller may not work reliably.
• Don’t put anything, such as a book, on the remote controller, because the buttons may be pressed inadvertently, thereby draining the batteries.
• The remote controller may not work reliably if the AV
receiver is installed in a rack behind colored glass
doors. Keep this in mind when installing.
• The remote controller will not work if there’s an obstacle between it and the AV receiver’s remote control
sensor.
Notes:
• The batteries should last for about six months,
although this will vary with usage.
• If the remote controller doesn’t work reliably, try
replacing the batteries.
• Don’t mix new and old batteries or different types of
batteries.
• If you intend not to use the remote controller for a long
time, remove the batteries to prevent damage from
leakage or corrosion.
• Expired batteries should be removed as soon as possible to prevent damage from leakage or corrosion.

Connecting Your Speakers
Enjoying Home Theater
You can use two sets of speakers with the AV receiver: speaker set A and speaker set B.
Speaker set A should be installed in your main listening room and can be used with Dolby Digital and DTS surround
material. Each speaker must be positioned at a specific location in your listening room to get the best from surround
sound material. The following illustration shows the best positions for your surround-sound speakers. When speaker set
B is turned on, speaker set A is reduced to 2.1-channel playback. If the multichannel DVD input is selected, and speaker
set B is turned on, speaker set A is reduced to 2-channel playback.
Speaker set B can be installed in another room. Speakers can be positioned in the standard position for stereo speakers
or however you like.
Front left and right speakers
These output the overall sound. Their role in a home theater is to provide a solid anchor for
the sound image. They should be positioned facing the listener at about ear level, and equidistant from the TV. Angle them inward so as to create a triangle, with the listener at the apex.
Center speaker
This speaker enhances the front left
and right speakers, making sound
movements distinct and providing a
full sound image. In movies it’s used
mainly for dialog.
Position it close to your TV (preferably
on top) facing forward at about ear
level, or at the same height as the
front left and right speakers.
Subwoofer
The subwoofer handles the bass sounds of
the LFE (Low-Frequency Effects) channel.
The volume and quality of the bass output
from your subwoofer will depend on its position, the shape of your listening room, and
your listening position. In general, a good
bass sound can be
obtained by installing the
subwoofer in a front corner,
or at one-third the width of
the wall, as shown.
Corner
Surround left and right speakers
These speakers are used for precise sound
positioning and to add realistic ambience.
Position them at the sides of the listener, or
slightly behind, about 2–3 feet (60–100 cm)
above ear level. Ideally they should be equidistant from the listener.

No matter how many speakers you use, a powered subwoofer is recommended for a really powerful and solid
bass.
Before using the AV receiver, you must specify which
speakers are connected and their sizes (see page 32).
To get the very best from your surround-sound system,
you should also specify the distance between the listener
and each individual speaker so that the sound from each
speaker arrives at the listener’s ears at the same time (see
page 49). In addition, you should set the level of each
individual speaker to achieve an equal balance (see
page 49.)
Attaching the Speaker Labels
The AV receiver’s positive (+) speaker terminals are
color-coded for ease of identification. (The negative (–)
speaker terminals are all black.)
Speaker terminal
Color
Front left
White
Front right
Red
Center
Green
Surround left
Blue

The supplied speaker labels are also color-coded and you
should attach them to the positive (+) side of each
speaker cable in accordance with the above table. All you
need to do then is to match the color of each label to the
corresponding speaker terminal.
16
Read the following before connecting your speakers:
• You can connect speakers with an impedance of
6 ohms or higher. If you use speakers with a lower
impedance, and use the amplifier at high volume levels for a long period of time, the built-in protection
circuit may be activated.
• Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet before
making any connections.
• Read the instructions supplied with your speakers.
• Pay close attention to speaker wiring polarity. In other
words, connect positive (+) terminals to only positive
(+) terminals, and negative (–) terminals to only negative (–) terminals. If you get them the wrong way
around, the sound will be out of phase and will sound
unnatural.
• Unnecessarily long, or very thin speaker cables may
affect the sound quality and should be avoided.
• Be careful not to short the
positive and negative wires.
Doing so may damage the AV
receiver.
• Don’t connect more than one
cable to each speaker terminal. Doing so may damage the
AV receiver.
• Don’t connect one speaker to several terminals.

Connecting Antenna
This section explains how to connect the supplied indoor
FM antenna and AM loop antenna, and how to connect
commercially available outdoor FM and AM antennas.
The AV receiver won’t pick up any radio signals without
any antenna connected, so you must connect the antenna
to use the tuner.

■ American Model
Connecting the AM Loop Antenna
The supplied indoor AM loop antenna is for indoor use
only.
1
Assemble the AM loop antenna, inserting
the tabs into the base, as shown.
2
Connect both wires of the AM loop
antenna to the AM push terminals, as
shown.
(The antenna’s wires are not polarity sensitive, so
they can be connected either way around).
Make sure that the wires are attached securely and
that the push terminals are gripping the bare
wires, not the insulation.
Push
Insert wire
Release
Insert the plug fully into the jack.
■ European Models
Insert the plug fully
into the jack.
Once your AV receiver is ready for use, you’ll
need to tune into an FM radio station and adjust
the position of the FM antenna to achieve the best
possible reception.
2
Fully extend the antenna and point it in
various directions to find the best reception. Secure it in that position with thumbtacks or something similar.
If you cannot achieve good reception with the supplied
indoor FM antenna, try a commercially available outdoor FM antenna instead (see page 19).
18
Once your AV receiver is ready for use, you’ll
need to tune into an AM radio station and adjust
the position of the AM antenna to achieve the best
possible reception.
Keep the antenna as far away as possible from
your AV receiver, TV, speaker cables, and power
cords.
If you cannot achieve good reception with the supplied
indoor AM loop antenna, try using it with a commercially available outdoor AM antenna (see page 19).

Connecting an Outdoor FM Antenna
Connecting an Outdoor AM Antenna
If you cannot achieve good reception with the supplied
indoor FM antenna, try a commercially available outdoor FM antenna instead.
If good reception cannot be achieved using the supplied
AM loop antenna, an outdoor AM antenna can be used in
addition to the loop antenna, as shown.
Outdoor antenna
Insulated antenna cable
AM loop antenna
Notes:
• Outdoor FM antennas work best outside, but usable
results can sometimes be obtained when installed in an
attic or loft.
• For best results, install the outdoor FM antenna well
away from tall buildings, preferably with a clear line
of sight to your local FM transmitter.
• Outdoor antenna should be located away from possible noise sources, such as neon signs, busy roads, etc.
• For safety reasons, outdoor antenna should be situated
well away from power lines and other high-voltage
equipment.
• Outdoor antenna must be grounded in accordance
with local regulations to prevent electrical shock hazards.
Outdoor AM antennas work best when installed outside
horizontally, but good results can sometimes be obtained
indoors by mounting horizontally above a window. Note
that the AM loop antenna should be left connected.
Outdoor antenna must be grounded in accordance with
local regulations to prevent electrical shock hazards.
■ Using a TV/FM Antenna Splitter
It’s best not to use the same antenna for both FM and TV
reception, as this can cause interference problems. If circumstances demand it, use a TV/FM antenna splitter, as
shown.

AV Connection Color Coding
About AV Connections
RCA-type AV connections are usually color coded: red,
white, and yellow. Use red plugs to connect right-channel audio inputs and outputs (typically labeled “R”). Use
white plugs to connect left-channel audio inputs and outputs (typically labeled “L”). And use yellow plugs to
connect composite video inputs and outputs.
• Before making any AV connections, read the manuals
supplied with your other AV components.
• Don’t connect the power cord until you’ve completed
and double-checked all AV connections.
Optical Digital Jacks
The AV receiver’s optical digital jack has shutter-type
cover that open when an optical plug is inserted and
close when it’s removed. Push plugs in all the way.

Which Connections Should I Use?
The AV receiver supports several connection formats for compatibility with a wide range of AV equipment. The format
you choose will depend on the formats supported by your other components. Use the following sections as a guide.
For video components, such as a DVD player, you must make two connections—one for audio, one for video.
Audio Connection Formats
Audio equipment can be connected to the AV receiver using the following audio connection formats: analog, optical,
coaxial, and multichannel.
When choosing a connection format, bear in mind that the AV receiver doesn’t convert between formats.
For example, audio signals connected to an OPTICAL or COAXIAL digital input are not output by the analog TAPE
OUT, so if you want to record from, for example, your CD player, in addition to connecting it to a digital input, you
must also connect it to the analog CD IN.

■ What is RDS?
RDS stands for Radio Data System and is a method of
transmitting data in FM radio signals. It was developed
by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and is available in most European countries. Many FM stations use
it these days. In addition to displaying text information,
RDS can also help you find radio stations by type (e.g.,
news, sport, rock, etc.).
The AV receiver supports four types of RDS information:
PS (Program Service)
When tuned to an RDS station that’s broadcasting PS
information, the station’s name appears. When you press
the [DISPLAY] button, the frequency is displayed for
three seconds.
RT (Radio Text)
When tuned to an RDS station that’s broadcasting RT
text information, that information is shown on the display (see page 39).

About the Listening Modes
Neo:6
With its built-in surround-sound decoders and DSP programs, the AV receiver can transform your home listening room into a movie theater or concert hall.
This mode provides 5.1-channel playback from 2-channel sources. It offers five full-bandwidth channels with
excellent separation. There are two modes of operation:
Cinema mode for movies, and Music mode for listening
to music.
Cinema mode simulates the realistic sense of movement
that you get with 5.1-channel surround sound sources.
Use this mode with videos, DVDs, and TV shows that
feature stereo sound.
Music mode uses the surround channels to simulate a
natural sound field that cannot be produced with conventional stereo. Use this mode with stereo material such as
music CDs.
The AV receiver’s surround indicators show which
speakers are active in each listening mode.
Front left
Center
Front right
Subwoofer
Surround
left
Surround
right
Direct
The selected input source is output directly with minimal
processing for a pure sound.
Stereo
The selected input source is processed as a stereo signal
and output by the front left and right speakers and the
subwoofer.
Mono
Use this mode when watching an old movie with a mono
soundtrack, or to select multilingual soundtracks
recorded in the left and right channels of some movies.
It can also be used when playing a DVD or other source
with multiplexed audio, such as a karaoke DVD.
Dolby Pro Logic II Movie
Use this mode with DVDs and videos that bear the Dolby Surround
logo or TV shows that feature Dolby Surround. You can
also use this mode with stereo movies or TV shows and
the AV receiver will create a 5.1 surround mix from the
2-channel stereo.
Dolby Pro Logic II Music
Use this mode to add 5.1 surround to stereo sources such
as music CDs and DVDs.
Dolby Pro Logic II Game
Use this mode when playing game discs.
Dolby Digital
With this format you can experience the
same superb sound that you get at a movie
theater or concert hall. Use this mode with DVDs that
bear the Dolby Digital logo.
DTS
This digital surround format offers a surround sound experience with exceptional
fidelity. It uses compressed digital audio
data, with six discrete channels (5.1), and the
ability to handle large amounts of audio data while
remaining faithful to the original. DTS provides very
high-quality sound. You’ll need a DTS compatible DVD
player in order to enjoy DTS material. Use this mode
with DVDs and CDs that bear the DTS logo.
Onkyo Original DSP Modes
Mono Movie
This mode is suitable for use with old movies and other
mono sound sources. The center speaker outputs the
sound as it is, while reverb is applied to the sound output
by the other speakers, giving presence to even mono
material.
Orchestra
Suitable for classical or operatic music. The surround
channels are emphasized in order to widen the stereo
image. In addition, it simulates the natural reverberation
of a large hall.
Unplugged
Suitable for acoustic instrument sounds, vocals, and jazz
music. By emphasizing the front stereo image, it simulates the stage-front experience.
Studio-Mix
Suitable for rock and pop music. Listening to music in
this mode creates a lively sound field with a powerful
acoustic image, like being at a club or rock concert.
TV Logic
Adds realistic acoustics to TV shows produced in a TV
studio. In addition, it adds surround effects to the entire
sound and adds clarity to voices.
All Ch Stereo
Ideal for background music. The front, surround, and
surround back channels create a stereo image that fills
the entire listening area.
Full Mono
In this mode, all speakers output mono audio, so the
music sounds the same regardless of where you are.

■ Multiplex
This setting determines which channel is output from a
stereo multiplex source. Use it to select audio channels
or languages with multiplex sources, multilingual TV
broadcasts, and so on.
Main: The main channel is output (default).
Sub: The sub channel is output.
M/S: Both the main and sub channels are output.
■ Mono (2ch)
This setting determines which channel is output when
the Mono listening mode is used with a stereo source.
L+R: Both the left and right channels are output
(default).
L: Only the left channel is output.
R: Only the right channel is output.
45
Adjusting the Listening Modes—Continued
PL II Music Mode Settings
These settings apply to only 2-channel (stereo) sources.
■ Panorama
With this function, you can broaden the width of the
front stereo image when using the Pro Logic II Music
listening mode.
On: Panorama function on.
Off: Panorama function off (default).
■ Dimension
With this setting, you can move the sound field forward
or backward when using the Pro Logic II Music listening
mode. The default setting is 3. Higher settings move the
sound field forward. Lower settings move it backward.
If the stereo image feels too wide, or there’s too much
surround sound, move the sound field forward to
improve the balance. Conversely, if the stereo image
feels like it’s in mono, or there’s not enough surround
sound, move it backward.
■ Center Width
With this function, you can adjust the width of the sound
from the center speaker when using the Pro Logic II
Music listening mode normally. If you’re using a center
speaker, the center channel sound is output by only the
center speaker. (If you’re not using a center speaker, the
center channel sound will be distributed to the front left
and right speakers to create a phantom center). This setting controls the front left, right, and center mix, allowing you to adjust the weight of the center channel sound.
It can be adjusted from 0 to 7 (default is 3).
DTS Neo:6 Music Mode Setting
■ Center Image
The DTS Neo:6 Music listening mode creates 5-channel
surround sound from 2-channel (stereo) sources. With
this setting, you can specify by how much the front left
and right channel output is attenuated in order to create
the center channel. It can be adjusted from 0 to 5 (default
is 3). This setting is unavailable if no surround speakers
are connected.
When set to 0, the front left and right channel output is
attenuated by half (–6 dB), giving the impression that the
sound is located centrally. This setting works well when
the listening position is considerably off center. When
set to 5, the front left and right channels are not attenuated, maintaining the original stereo balance.
46
Using the Late Night Function
(Dolby Digital only)
With the Late Night function, you can reduce the
dynamic range of Dolby Digital material so that you can
still hear quiet parts even when listening at low volume
levels—ideal for watching movies late at night when you
don’t want to disturb anyone.
1
Press the [RECEIVER] button,
and then press the [L NIGHT] button repeatedly to select:
Off: Late Night function off.
Low: Small reduction in dynamic
range.
High: Big reduction in dynamic
range.
Notes:
• The effect of the Late Night function depends on the
Dolby Digital material that you are playing, and with
some material there will be little or no effect.
• The Late Night function is set to Off when the AV
receiver is set to Standby.
Using the CinemaFILTER
With the CinemaFILTER, you can soften overly bright
movie soundtracks, which are typically mixed for reproduction in a movie theater.
CinemaFILTER can be used with the following listening
modes: Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II Movie, DTS,
and DTS Neo:6 Cinema.
1
Press the [RECEIVER] button,
and then press the [CINE FLTR]
button repeatedly to select:
On: CinemaFILTER on.

Recording
This chapter explains how to record the selected input
source to an AV component with recording capability,
and how to record audio and video from two different
sources.
Recording the Input Source
You can record only to AV components that are connected to the TAPE OUT or VIDEO 1 OUT jacks.
See pages 20–29 for information on connecting your AV
components to the AV receiver.

controller
Use the input selector buttons to
select the AV component that
you want to record.
Audio signals from the selected input
source are output by the VIDEO 1 OUT
and TAPE OUT jacks.
You can listen to the source while
recording. The AV receiver’s VOLUME control has no effect on recording.
Recording from Different AV Sources
With this function, you can record audio and video from
different sources, allowing you to overdub audio onto
your video recordings. This function takes advantage of
the fact that when an audio-only input source (i.e.,
TAPE, TUNER, or CD) is selected, the video input
source remains unchanged. For example, if you first
select the VIDEO 3 input source, followed by the CD
input source, you can watch the video from the VIDEO 3
input and listen to the audio from the CD input.
In the following example, audio from the CD player connected to the CD IN jacks, and video from the camcorder
connected to the VIDEO 3 IN jack are recorded by the
VCR, which is connected to the VIDEO 1 OUT jacks.

that you know well and choose a higher crossover frequency if you think there’s not enough sound coming
from the subwoofer; a lower setting if you think
there’s too much.
Double Bass
With the Double Bass function, you can boost bass output by feeding bass sounds from the front left and right
channels to the subwoofer. This function can be set only
if the Subwoofer setting (step 3) is set to Yes, and the
Front setting (step 4) is set to Large in the Speaker Configuration on page 32.
Use the Down [ ] button to
select “Crossover,” and then use
the Left and Right [ ]/[ ] buttons to select a crossover frequency.
Choose a crossover frequency suitable
for your setup.
If you’re using a subwoofer, choose a
crossover frequency based on the diameter of your front speakers.
If you’re not using a subwoofer, use
the diameter of the first speaker that
you specified as Small in steps 4
through 7 in the “Speaker configuration” setting (see page 32).

distance from each speaker to
the listening position.
2
Press the [RECEIVER] button followed by the [SETUP] button on
the remote controller.
Notes:
• The Center and Subwoofer distances can be set up to
5 ft. (1.5 m) more or less than the Front distance. For
example, if the Front distance is set to 20 ft. (6 m), the
Center and Subwoofer distances can be set between 15
and 25 ft. (4.5 and 7.5 m).
• The Surround distances can be set up to 5 ft. (1.5 m)
more or 15 ft. (4.5 m) less than the Front distance. For
example, if the Front distance is set to 20 ft. (6 m), the

Troubleshooting
If you have any trouble using the AV receiver, look for a
solution in this section. If you can’t resolve the issue
yourself, contact your Onkyo dealer.
Power
Can’t turn on the AV receiver?
• Make sure that the power cord is properly plugged into
the wall outlet.
• Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait five
seconds or more, then plug it in again.
The AV receiver turns off as soon as it’s turned
on?
• The amp protection circuit has been activated.
Remove the power cord from the wall outlet immediately. Disconnect all speaker cables and input sources,
and leave the AV receiver with its power cord disconnected for one hour. After that, reconnect the power
cord, and then set the volume to maximum. If the AV
receiver stays on, set the volume to minimum, disconnect the power cord, and reconnect your speakers and
input sources properly. If the AV receiver turns off
when you set the volume to maximum, disconnect the
power cord, and contact your Onkyo dealer.
Audio
There’s no sound or it’s very quiet?
• Make sure that the digital input source is selected
properly (page 31). Press the [DIGITAL INPUT] button repeatedly.
• Make sure that all audio connecting plugs are pushed
in all the way (page 20).
• Make sure that the polarity of the speaker cables is
correct, and that the bare wires are in contact with
metal part of each speaker terminal (page 17)
• Make sure that the speaker cables are not shorting.
• Check the volume. It can be set to MIN, 1 through 79,
or MAX (page 34). The AV receiver is designed for
home theater enjoyment and has a wide volume range
for precise adjustment.
• If the MUTING indicator is shown on the display,
press the remote controller’s [MUTING] button to
unmute the AV receiver (page 40).
• While a pair of headphones is connected to the
PHONES jack, no sound is output by the speakers
(page 41).
• Check the digital audio output setting on the connected device. On some games consoles, such as those
that can play DVDs, the default setting is off.
• With some DVD-Video discs, you need to select an
audio format from a menu.
• If your turntable doesn’t have a phono preamp built-in,
you must connect one between it and the AV receiver.
If your turntable uses an MC cartridge, you must connect an MC head amp, or an MC transformer and a
phono preamp.
• Specify the speaker distances and adjust the individual
speaker levels (pages 49, 50).
• The input signal format is set to PCM or DTS. Set it to
Auto (page 50).
Only the front speakers produce sound?
• When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
only the front speakers and subwoofer produce sound.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 32).
Only the center speaker produces sound?
• If you use the Pro Logic II Movie or Pro Logic II
Music listening mode with a mono source, such as an
AM radio station or mono TV program, the sound is
concentrated in the center speaker.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 32).
The surround speakers produce no sound?
• When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
the surround speakers produce no sound (page 42).
• Depending on the source and current listening mode,
not much sound may be produced by the surround
speakers. Try selecting another listening mode.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 32).
The center speaker produces no sound?
• When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
the center speaker produces no sound (page 42).
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 32).
The subwoofer produces no sound?
• The subwoofer outputs no sound while only speaker
set B is on. Turn on speaker set A.
• When you play source material that contains no information in the LFE channel, the subwoofer produces
no sound.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 32).
• If the multichannel DVD input is selected and speaker
set B is on, speaker set A is reduced to 2-channel playback, so the subwoofer outputs no sound.
51
Troubleshooting—Continued
There’s no sound with a certain signal format?
• Check the digital audio output setting on the connected device. On some games consoles, such as those
that can play DVDs, the default setting is off.
• With some DVD-Video discs, you need to select an
audio output format from a menu.
Can’t get 5.1-channel playback?
• When speaker B is turned on, speaker set A is reduced
to 2.1-channel playback.
The volume cannot be set to 79?
• When the levels of all speakers have been calibrated
(pages 41, 49), the maximum volume setting may
change.
Noise can be heard?
• Using cable ties to bundle audio cables with power
cords, speaker cables, and so on may degrade the
audio performance, so don’t do it.
• An audio cable may be picking up interference. Try
repositioning your cables.
The Late Night function doesn’t work?
• Make sure the source material is Dolby Digital
(page 46).
The DVD analog multichannel input doesn’t
work?
• Check the DVD analog multichannel input connections (page 23).
• To select the DVD analog multichannel input, press
the [MULTI CH] input selector button.
• Check the audio output settings on your DVD player.
About DTS signals
• When DTS program material ends and the DTS bitstream stops, the AV receiver remains in DTS listening mode and the DTS indicator remains on. This is to
prevent noise when you use the pause, fast forward, or
fast reverse function on your player. If you switch your
player from DTS to PCM, because the AV receiver
does not switch formats immediately, you may not
hear any sound, in which case you should stop your
player for about three seconds, and then resume playback.
• With some CD players, you won’t be able to playback
DTS material properly even though your player is connected to a digital input on the AV receiver. This is
usually because the DTS bitstream has been processed
(e.g., output level, sampling rate, or frequency
response changed) and the AV receiver doesn’t recognize it as a genuine DTS signal. In such cases, you
may hear noise.
• When playing DTS program material, using the pause,
fast forward, or fast reverse function on your player
52
may produce a short audible noise. This is not a malfunction.
Video
There’s no picture?
• Make sure that all video connecting plugs are pushed
in all the way (page 20).
• Make sure that each video component is properly connected.
• On your TV, make sure that the video input to which
the AV receiver is connected is selected.
Tuner
Reception is noisy, stereo FM reception suffers
from hiss, or the FM STEREO indicator doesn’t
appear?
• Relocate your antenna.
• Move the AV receiver away from your TV or computer.
• Listen to the station in mono (page 36).
• When listening to an AM station, operating the remote
controller may cause noise.
• Passing cars and airplanes can cause interference.
• Concrete walls weaken radio signals.
• If nothing improves the reception, install an outdoor
antenna.
Troubleshooting—Continued
Remote Controller
The remote controller doesn’t work?
• Make sure that the batteries are installed with the correct polarity (page 9).
• Make sure that the remote controller is not too far
away from the AV receiver, and that there’s no
obstruction between the remote controller and the AV
receiver’s remote control sensor (page 9).
• Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote controller mode (page 10).
• Make sure you’ve entered the correct remote control
code.
Can’t control other components?
• Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote controller mode (page 10).
• To control Onkyo cassette tape deck, point the remote
controller at the AV receiver.
• To control Onkyo CD player, MD/CD recorder, point
the remote controller at that component.
The AV receiver contains a microcomputer for signal processing and control functions. In very rare situations,
severe interference, noise from an external source, or
static electricity may cause it to lockup. In the unlikely
event that this happens, unplug the power cord from the
wall outlet, wait at least five seconds, and then plug it
back in again.
Onkyo is not responsible for damages (such as CD
rental fees) due to unsuccessful recordings caused by
the unit’s malfunction. Before you record important
data, make sure that the material will be recorded correctly.
To reset the AV receiver to its factory defaults, turn
it on and, while holding down the [VIDEO 1/VCR]
button, press the [STANDBY/ON] button. “Clear”
will appear on the display and the AV receiver will
enter Standby mode.
Before disconnecting the power cord from the wall outlet, set the AV receiver to Standby.
Recording
Can’t record?
• On your recorder, make sure the correct input is
selected.
• To prevent signal loops and damage to the AV
receiver, input signals are not fed through to outputs
with the same name (e.g., TAPE IN to TAPE OUT, or
VIDEO 1 IN to VIDEO 1 OUT).
Others
The sound changes when I connect my headphones?
• When a pair of headphones is connected, the listening
mode is set to Stereo, unless it’s already set to Stereo,
Mono or Direct.
How do I change the language of a multiplex
source?
• Use the “Multiplex” setting on the “4. Audio Adjust”
menu to select Main or Sub (page 45).
The
functions don’t work?
• To use
, you must make an
connection and an
analog audio connection (RCA) between the component and AV receiver, even if they are connected digitally (page 29).
