thanks but I tried just about everything. Factory resets on the 606 and projector, updated blu-ray firmware, etc. I have the Samsung BD-P1500 and I read elsewhere that this player tends to clash with Onkyo receivers. But the problem exists even on the setup menu, so it's really strange.

Here's my fix for anyone interested. It's working so far.

Big ripple caps are 100uF electrolytic and small filter caps are .47uF ceramics.

I went with thru-hole parts because that's what I had laying around

Thanks "spldart" for your original post. My pic isn't as good as his but I replaced / added all the same caps (top and bottom).

Default HDMI fails on 1080p

Hi guys, I'm assuming replacing the caps will fix my issue.

* No OSD (could care less but nice for audio level visibility)
* No 1080p. HDMI works when input are in 1080i or lower.

It started out slowly as I lost the OSD, but didn't really care and thought it was a setting i had to go change. Near a year later, I started to have issues with HDMI inputs (Xbox port first then PS3). Given it was an xbox i blamed the xbox since it already RROD once and it would work after waiting 5 mins. All the other ports worked just fine. But recently I just had the PS3 have the same issue, and then it failed completely. I did some further troubleshooting and figured out that its the 1080p signal as all devices work fine at 1080i. Directv receiver only does to 1080i as well as the dvd player.

I'm out of warranty and haven't opened up the receiver yet so if you could send me details on the caps voltage or possible links I would appreciate it. I ask because from the few pictures I see different voltages and I'm no engineer to determine which is right. I plan on calling Onkyo on monday to find out what they would charge for the repair which I'm sure will result in dusting off the soldering iron.

I followed the instructions for the fix and 1080p was perfect for about 20 minuets, then I started getting flashes of green dots, like some kind of weird noise, it's hardly noticeable on light back grounds, but on black black its very noticeable, and it goes away when I switch to 720p. Any suggestions?

Default Trade in

FYI. Onkyo is doing a trade in for the 606 out of warranty for a 608 for 250. Issue are:
* it's a refurb model w 1 yr warranty / support
* shipping the 606 to Onkyo would be a good penny.

My 606 just came back for the second time. I originally got it back the first week in March, after just replacing/adding 4 capacitors. Again having issues already. I would have to send it in for a third time.

I called Onkyo, frustrated that my receiver has been gone for some time and I still have repeated issues. I'm under warranty. The gentleman I talked to said to fax him the two service repair slips, my proof of purc, and that they'd do an upgrade to the 608.

My local repair place said the 608 is issue free as of now.

Anyone else getting a similar upgrade offer? It sounded to me that it was free, but I'm not sure if the unit was new or refurbed.

Mine was issue free for over a year before the problems started.

I've had the 606 since Dec 2008 with minimal issues - sometimes I would have to switch back 'n forth a few times to get the audio to work - not a big deal. However suddenly I have a major problem with the HDMI video out: the picture is very grainy with a green background, even on the Onkyo setup screen! I can still see the true picture, but it's grainy and green regardless of the source input.

I have this hooked up to an Optoma projector with HDMI to DVI adapter, so my first suspect was the adapter. Bought a new one, but problem remains. If I run my blu-ray or cable box directly to the projector, picture is perfect (even with the original adapter).

Now here's the kicker - I hooked the 606 up to my Sharp Aquos LCD TV in another room and everything is perfect!!! Back to the projector and it's green/grainy again. I'm afraid if I bring the 606 into a service center, they're going to tell me it works fine. Plus I lost my receipt.

In summary, everything works individually, but the desired combination stopped working after 20 months of working fine. Any ideas on this bizarre situation?
Your HDMI board is shot. This is a known issue. Hope you're under warranty!

Default Fixed!

SUCCESS!!!! after a little bit of soldering, I've fixed my issues. Well most of it. So far it's been on for a good 5hrs with no issues switching between devices.

* No OSD (could care less but nice for audio level visibility) - Fixed - No OSD for volume but setup menu works via hdmi
* No 1080p. HDMI works when input are in 1080i or lower. Fixed - 1080p from xbox and my PS3 are working on any hdmi port.

Parts bought (sorry can't post link yet):
5x (got 6 just in case) - Capacitor Mini Electrolytic 4V 100uf Surface Mount 5MM - mcmelectronics com search for 31-8160
1x (sold in pack of 10)- Panasonic ECQV 1uf 50v Film Capacitor 5% 5mm - search ebay for exact wording (seller was jfromel)

The attached pictures shows in circle what was replaced and the soldering points with arrows. I hastily did the 5 film cap to avoid reopening the case again like RacerX10 did.

thanks goes to spldart & RacerX10 for their pics as i used both to clarify where to solder.

Forgot to add, after soldering and plugging in, do a reset with the power & vcr button.

Thanks for that posts. I've just fixed all my problems with my 606. Now it switches 1080p in a second!

Thanks spldart for all the information. I had no OSD or component outputs on my Onkyo 606, HDMI work fine thankfully. I soldered the 4 TF Caps per your pics and everything works great now OSD and Component out through HDMI. Thanks again.

BTW I noticed that the wide end of the chip is covered in a thin film. I had to scratch it off with a metal tool to get the solder to take.

that thin film is heat damage to the regulator tab. The more severe cases can make all the regulators in question here and subsequently some that don't need a mod look dark blue or smoke. Sometimes kinda brownish. I take a dremel wire brush and careful by hand wipe it across the tab of the regulator so as to allow the solder to stick better. Adding some soldering rosin to the tab before the solder itself can also helps to get things goin.
I should have mentioned that.
sorry

Default Another successful repair

Many thanks to all. Between this thread and the one at AVSForum (which led me here), and $10 worth of parts, my 606 is back in action.

Would anyone know where we might be able to pull 12v DC so a PC fan could be added without the use of an external power supply?
