Gary Davis: I have the opposite problem. My audio goes out while watching TV so I turn
off the receiver and use the TV's audio for a while and then later turn on
the receiver and it is working again. This has happened a handful of times.
So my problem seems heat related and after a cool down, it's back to normal.
I have a TX-NR509.
Scott Prazak: So you heat up the board EVERY time?
Richard Scobie: Why the hell should we have to do all this, I just got mine back from
repair and still have the same problem, why cant Onkyo sort out this
problem, I did a silly thing, I swapped my Arcam for this load of pure
Jarosław Jan: Will be beter if you do rebaling procesor!!!! but remember for reon use
lead free balls!!! for this smal procesor it might be lead balls!!!
Goran Milosevic: Hi!
Model Tx-NR509. After 2.5 year issue with sound and no LAN connectivity.
Use same method but only on processor near lan port Q3001 with DSP logo on
Use fan and expose ~1.5 minutes. Wait to cool chip and all works fine.
Thanks mdworzan, save me +100Eur
Same procedure explained on
bruno william: did work I used a heat gun and work fine and i add some fans to cool the
John Doe: Does anyone know what a typical HDMI board cost to replace?
morpha: Thanks for this tip! It's not a permanent solution by any means, but at
least I've got sound until Onkyo gets back to me.
Kim Puters: Heating up the board with lamps. Kinda point to chips on HDMI board may be
loose.. soldering issue perhap. I'm going to try a heat gun on my HDMI
board off my Onkyo AV HT RC180 which is the same unit this vid. I just
bought my Onkyo from Goodwill for $30 with identical issue in this video.
Mark Kinnell: I have the same problem and your solution seems to work. Are you still
using this fix or have you found a more permanent fix?
vintage stereo: Very nice video. I have hdmi problems with a onkyo tx-sr706. Is this the
same hdmi board as in the previous models, if so , I can try to repair it
with the help of a youtube video where they explain how to fix the job. Can
copy this video and place it on my channel, i will of course give all the
credits to you with a link to you page. make some new subscribers.
nathasja21: Take 2 then u need to take a coolling plate a putt it the chip with paste
like ur pc processor so it can let the heat go of the chip now u can play
years.. If u want a good solution then u have to take of the chip and
reball the chip and solder it on then its as new and it can take 4-5 years
before it will break again so use the heat socket to putt on the chip and
it wil work forever.
vintage stereo: I don't think vintage can beaten by modern gear... the first one still have
to be built
MrKojack50: Better Solution is to replace the HDMI board which is the problem and Onkyo
know about it as well.
melenmike: this model will eat them vintage stereo !!
mdworzan: Yep... and try to find this bad connection ;) When my amp refuse to work
after warming up solution, then I put it immediately to thrash, and NEVER
by another Onkyo expensive and suck sheisse. I've just canceled order
Yamaha RX-A3010, because of my working solution :) But... my patience gone.
Kim Puters: So far four hours of music and the unit has shut off yet since the unit was
fixed with the heat gun method.
Chris van der Wiel: I had the exact same problem. My solution was to turn on de reciever half
an hour before listening. When warmed up just turned it of and on again and
tadaa! ;-) Unfortunatly even that didn't do the job anymore after a few
weeks. You're heating the HDMI board wich is the part needed to be replaced
in mine. I guess it has something to do with a bad connection that expands
and connects when heated.
Samsonite1971: I have the tx-nr709 and I have the same problems. It is the second Onkyo
recieved I have owned but considering the hassle I had with this one I will
definatly never buy another product from them.
Filip M: what lamps r u using?
Martin Slingerland: Anyone with a more structural solution to this problem?
ravens3558: Onkyo you FILITH, how I despise thee!!
livemeyer: Electronics do this. Almost always heat related. Just because you "warmed
it up" with a lamp doesn't mean it's fixed. Would have been nice if you
could have talked us through what you were doing. Wasted my time staring at
a screen of an open receiver for two minutes.
wazzz193: hey nathasja21, ik wilde even zeggen, thanx for the tip. this is the answer
i was looking for, have the same problem on my 806. super bedankt, ga
meteen aan de slag.
nathasja21: There are 1 or 2 big chips on the hdmi board the chip that gets the hottest
is the problem u now what hot can do with metal soldier after a mean its
cracks becouse the chip is expanding then the welts break. How u repair ur
board very easy heat it up with a air gun or something else protect the
otther things around so use alu folie and cut the piece of the chip out.
The heat it up carrefully and press it down u need to do this maybe 1-3
times before it work becouse is hard to resolder the joins.
Ulf Wanderås: Same problem, Onkyo replaced the HDMi card with no charge in norway with
3,5 years old reciever :-D
ggwsk: Embarrassing quality of product. I have onkyo sound pro 5508 just few days
ago I had this issue need to wait for more than 5 minutes then to restart
to make sound appear.
Brooke Meyers: Happened to me 3 times! After my extended warranty company made me take it
40 miles to a repair center they finally told me today they will replace
it...with a new Onkyo. Makes me upset but please tell me they have the
problem figured out???? So are you guys saying Onkyo will help to fix the
Kim Puters: Heat gun method worked on my HT RC180/TX NR807 receiver. Bought heat gun at
Radio Shack. Heated the the HDMI board up prior to power up for about three
to four minutes. When I powered the unit up I got the click and speakers
showed up on the display. Wallah sound!. I also fixed my Onkyo AV TX304
receiver with the same method.
mdworzan: And pay over 300$?
Jacky Delepaut: onkyo need to change name because they make crap i pay 800 dollard for this
crap i never buy onkyo looking for harman kardon
vintage stereo: That is the reason why i only buy and review vintage stereo equipment, much
better sound and better quality, check my reviews and discover the old
deeper vintage sound and quality
Wujek Dobra Rada: I have TX-SR607 and exactly same problem, except my Onkyo starts to produce
sound by itself after few minutes of warm up. On the side note - first
thing which broke is whole analog video circuit (analog video inputs do not
work and I have no OSD), but I can live with it. In short: this was my
first and last Onkyo purchase. I will never, ever buy anymore s**t like
