If this model is anything like my previous Onkyo ( think it was a 605 ) you can connect an RCA phono lead to the yellow composite RCA socket marked 'Monitor Out'. That should then be connected to the yellow composite in RCA on the TV. You should then be able to change the source on the TV to composite and view the menus to assign inputs etc.

best wishes,

Col.

Why don't you ask your mate to help you get it up and running? Do you have the manual? You should be able to download one from the internet.

That is what you will use to get the amp's menu on screen. Connect the monitor out to the composite (video) input using a composite cable.

iirc with my 605 when I got that and connected by HDMI to the TV the menu defaulted to display on the small LCD on the amp, not ideal but useful enough to allow you to set the menu's output to the TV, is this not the same?

No you will need to select the AV input for the composite connection.

If you are still having problems, I would google for how to reset the AV Receiver to factory default. After that, it would appear to be faulty.

I've just read the 606 manual and this bit is highlighted
The onscreen setup menus appear only on a TV that is connected to the HDMI OUT. If your TV is connected to the
composite video or S-Video MONITOR OUT, or the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT, use the TX-SR606’s display when
changing settings.
so it nogo using any other cable to view the menu.

the manual is not very clear and from memory you need your TV connected via HDMI and then switch to menu, it will appear on the receivers LCD display then enter the 6.miscellaneous menu and the 2nd option is OSD which you select the TV output then the menu should if I am correct appear on the TV instead of the receivers LCD.

Ok tried what you said nothing happens may well be a fault although I can't see how as it was working perfectly before thank guys for your help anyway

try this from the manual
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.
that sets the receiver back to factory defaults, connect an HDMI cable from HDMI out on the receiver to HDMI 1 on the TV and select that input on the TV

then from the manual

Press the receiver button on the remote followed by the setup button.

The main menu appears onscreen.
