My 606 was experiencing the HDMI switching problem until this morning when it finally died (no video signal to my projector). I have read the nearly 200 messages on this subject (HD forum & AVS forum) with several references to Onkyo Bulletins but I cannot find a copy of them. Can somebody provide me copies of these? I am not experienced with soldering micro-circuits and need to have somebody do this work for me so that I do not mess things up. Between the forum information and bulletins I hope to get my 606 together in time before the holiday.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Thanks guys, I replaced the 5 x 100uf surface mount caps, plugged the board back in, and it works great.

Before the fix it would not show component video or any of the OSD (including menus), and would take 5-10 min to get the signal from HDMI 1 through to the TV.

I have not however installed the 4 x 1.0 uf film caps yet. The only caps I was able to get were 1.0 uf 64v film caps. will it pose a problem if the casp are 64v instead of 50v?

spldart: no problem I won't mention your username specifically in the video.

Here's the video I made. I only replace the 100uf caps in this video.

Sry. It's unlikely anyone will post information directly from the actual onkyo bulletins.. They, like most of the bulletins, are marked confidential. People with legit access could lose their authorization and their contract business.
Thus my making my own pictures of the board to paste here.

My 606 finally went on the blink as well, so I'll swap the 100uF and add 1uF. I noticed my HDMI board is an 'A' rev (25139473A-1) with two dots and '663' sharpied on Q282 and a Genesis Q8001. What am I missing in hardware/software compared to current revisions? Is it flash based so code can be uploaded (serial port beside hdmi out)? What are the chances of getting a salvaged newer replacement and would it be compatible with my unit?

tx-sr606, and if I remember correctly the ht-r667 and 960 all have interchangable hdmi boards... The Integra DTR-5.9 board is nearly identical with identical cap failure but can't quite pratically interchange. Don't worry about any revision or board numbers on that board.
Any firmware upgrades done on the 606 and other vintage onkyo receivers are done via cd especially burned and played in certain players while hooked to hdmi 1 with receiver set especially.
Sry for the spelling. I'm tired
Good effort on the video edkern

Help! I performed the repair a couple of days ago with success. Unfortunately, today the fix went sour. Without notice, the signal would be lost intermittently and then went away for good. During the repair I thought that I may have lifted a pad on one of the 100 uf caps so I took another stab at it. I checked all of the solder joints and did my best to reseat the lifted tab (not completely broke off). When I put everything back together, I can no longer power the unit on as it immediately trips. In the process, I completely trashed the 5 wire connector going to the HDMI board.

I'm ready to drop-kick the unit in the 4 ft of snow we have recv'd the last week (it will be completely buried with the 1-2 ft we're expecting this week). I'm not ready to buy another receiver, especially when Onyko keeps coming up with the best ratings.

Any thoughts as to why the unit keeps tripping now? Can I buy just the HDMI mother board? Or should I offer it the unit to mother nature?

Thanks.

If your under warranty get it into a service center... There is a bulletin on this unit... The caps are more numerous and much smaller.. Not sure I'd suggest a beginner try the repair... And your hdmi board is WAY more expensive increasing your risk substantially.

Out-of-warranty. Apparently a factory refurb. The board is already non-functional so... if you have any more information on that bulletin I would love to see it. I'm not a beginner but would use some prudence once I see the board for myself.

Thanks.

Are we talking about surface-mount capacitors ? Yeah not sure I want to attack that . But armed with the right information I could farm it out locally to someone who could. I wonder what Onkyo charges to fix their own design flaws ?

Update- had a "professional" touch-up my soldering but still no luck. Unit will not turn on and only hear a clicking from a relay near the power entry. Any ideas?

Yup you should give to Mother Nature. I know how to get hold of her Seriously, sounds like a short of sorts. I don't know if these boards are multi-layered or not, I would have another look at that lifted trace. Assuming of course u didn't cross any wires on the power connector.

One last question before I give it the boot. I get the clicking even without the HDMI card plugged in. What gives?

You may have damaged something in the power supply. Dont take any of my advice here: if I could fix my own receiver I wouldn't be perusing this thread lol.
