John ONeil: Hey Ed. I know this video is old, but I wanted to say thanks. I was about to dump a lot of money down the drain on a comparable new unit when I saw this and decided to go for it. I followed the steps here and viola! It's as good as new.
If I ever see you, I am buying you a beer.
Mikael Sandberg: Hello. I have no problems with hdmi input but I do have problems with non working on-screen display when entering Setup, also I have no working VGA inputs. Will the capacitor replacements as in your video fix my issues?
Thanks in advance Mikael
Srinivas Murty: The expert who showed this video obviously has tons of experience soldering. After my clumsy attempt at soldering the new capacitors. Took me quite an effort with 5 capacitors all sitting at odd angles, certainly not the clean SMT that the original components had. And a slightly burnt carpet as I accidentally let the soldering iron roll off the metal stand!
I ended up with none of the HDMI inputs working, as opposed to before when at least one of them did! I was trying to pull out the board again to recheck the soldering. Lo and behold, although the ribbon cable was easily pulled off, the other cable got stuck and as I tugged and tugged, I ended up with part of the cable's leads left stuck in the socket. Have I totalled everything now? I currently have the receiver sitting around mainly as decoration, as are my 5.1 speakers! Any suggestions or advice would be very welcome.
Delphine Martin: Hi, I found the HDMI card, I removed the screws but there were ribbon cables attached to it. The first one in the corner came away easily but I can't remove the other one. How did you all do it? Is there a special trick ;-) ?
Eric Monje: Do you know if the unit functions with the hdmi board removed or if I somehow botch the job will I be able to use the other inputs like the optical?
Haavar Valeur: Thanks. This fixed the issue I was having with the HDMI output taking 2 minutes or more to show up on my TV.
A temporary fix for this issue would be to enable HDMI power control (RIHD), under hardware in the menu. I think that's onkyo's name for CEC. This will keep the HDMI board powered up all the time, even when the tuner is in standby. The downside is that it will suck about 60-70w.
The caps in mine were closer to 5mm. I ended up buying spool of 1000. They are high quality 6v. I'll sell them cheap for anyone who is doing this repair :).
David vd Geest: I had exact situation descriped in your video and the sollution worked fine. I have a TX-SR607 with a slightly different hdmi board but i managed to figure out wich ones had to be replaced.
Just copied the example form above since the situation was similar. Before: The receiver would take 5-10 min to hook up with the TV. Neither the video nor sound would work until the connection to the TV was made. The On Screen Display (OSD) didn't work, and component video in would not work going out HDMI to the TV. The problems all started at different times, and got worse over time.
After: HDMI handshake now works properly and connects after a second or two (so everything connects quickly). Component video and OSD work fine.
dina Mac: Hi there, do you think this is the action I need to take for my receiver? It lightly fell from the tv stand (receiver was still on the stand when it fell). The stand detached from the back when adding weight to the stand and it caused it to fall along with receiver. The cable was still connected to the port and it may have damaged something in the port because the video color is off and it flickers. Everything else is working fine. Any tips, thoughts? I really want to try and fix it myself before spending $$$$$
Sam Crotty (KonigSeppy): Replaced the 5 capacitors with 16v on my SR606
Before: HDMI inputs would take up to 20 minutes before they started working
After: HDMI inputs work immediately
Dev R: I have a onkyo tx-sr606 and my issue is the video will randomly cut out for a second or two (audio still works) the it comes back. It intermittently happens Do you think this would fix my issue aswell?
largegorilla: Used 16V high temp capacitors from fry's. $1.06 each. Before: Receiver started to take forever to perform HDMI handshake and eventually wouldn't work with HDMI input at all. OSD didn't work. Audio via optical worked perfectly.
After: All good, OSD works, HDMI inputs work at various resolutions. No trouble found.
wederwoord: Onkyo repair service asked 284 euro to repair it outside of gurarantee. +250 000 views, so basicly EVERY single one of them broke down after 2 years. In-freaking-credible! Isn't there something we all can do to sue them? Any lawyers on here?
mcjunkiek: can i do the same by the onkyo txsr 608 ?
barnomoy: Thanks for the video! It worked for me! :) However, now that the HDMI output is working, it does not show colors correctly. There is a pink hue all over the display. The setup menu, though, shows fine. Its only when I try to output an HDMI IN (CBL/SAT, DVD, GAME/TV etc) does this discoloration occur. Any advice?
swrzesinski: Good job for that "pseudo" repair. Guy from vid don't know what smd soldering is. And way too much solder for that tiny cap.
Curt Briley: before:hdmi 1 only worked, hdmi 2 when it wanted to, hdmi 3&4 not at all. osd not at all.
after: everything works flawless
thanks for the info.
deedeedaydee: A quarter of a million views, that tells you how badly made these Amps were.
