Onkyo tr nx 686 remote control problem


Active Member

Recently I've encountered a problem with my Onkyo avr and remote, pressing any button on the remote the red light on the remote does light up, however the avr doesn't respond to anything off the remote aside from the inputs

To change the avr volume I have to use my TV remote or virgin media remote which adjusts it via HDMI arc I assume.

Any idea what is wrong?

Press <Receiver> button after selecting the appropriate input button.
Then does any of the other remote buttons / functions work?

Soz been a mad few weeks.

Where is the <reciever> button?

Some buttons work such as selecting the HDMI input but that's it, tried changing remote ID but that hasn't worked.

My bad. Your remote is different to my 515.

Have you tried page 11 and 65 of :rtfm:
If the remote controller does not work:
The remote controller may have switched to the mode for controlling ZONE 2. While pressing and holding MODE, press the MAIN button for 3 seconds or more until the remote indicator blinks once, and then switch it to the mode for controlling the main room.
