Default Has auto-calibration wrecked my amp?

I usually like to calibrate an amp by myself, but after 10 months of that, I felt to urge to try and get the very best out of my Onkyo TX-444 through using the on-board system.

Set up the mic exactly as specified in the manual and set it off. When trying afterwards, I was struck by how there was a lack of deep bass this time around. Not happy, I went about making adjustments to get it back, all to no avail. I put in my original settings, but did nothing. Panicking at this point, I did a factory reset in the hopes it might clear any unseen adjustments made by the auto-calibration, but nope.

I got my old Sony amp out of mothballs and wired it up. The difference was night & day, with scenes from Dredd, Captain America and The Dark Knight Rises cleaning the floor with the - now confirmed - compromised Onkyo.

Does anyone have any idea what might have happened or what might have blown during the self-calibration? Any opinions would be appreciated.

Last time I did the auto calibrate a couple of months ago the sub couldn't be calibrated because somehow I must have inadvertently turned up the volume knob on the back of the sub.Once I had turned down that volume it calibrated without any problem.

You might want to check that and see if it makes any difference if you turn down the sub volume on the sub itself.I just turned mine down a small amount.

My sub is a real Billy-no-mates, as it just sits in the corner with no human contact. It was fine when I plugged in my old 5.1 Sony, though.

Thanks!
