Well... I was just about to give up, since I have a new Denon on the way, when I found that sneaky hidden fuse sitting on the underside of the small PCB near the transformer. For some reason that fuse had blown. Popped in a replacement and all is well.

So far the HDMI signal is stable, but the big test will come after work tomorrow (seems to be at its worst when everything is cold).

Thanks for all of the great information posted here.

I would have to wonder why the fuse had blown... fuses rarely ever go bad and just blow...

my but do keep us posted!

I agree with your two cents; strange that it blew. Everything is working great, the HDMI signal is not cutting out and the receiver is stable. This kind of thing is what makes the internet great.

Hey guys I made a video for people who may not have a ton of experience with this kind of stuff. In this video (which will be the first of two) I replace the 5 x 100uf caps.

Thanks GhettoSuperSta and Spldart for all the great info.

Default Not dolby - Solved

I wanna says thanks first for this post and the people that help here.

My receivers is the 667 with the HDMI problem.

Well, I resolve my HDMI problem with this fix but create others. jaja

- Now my receiver not recognize Dolby programs and not switch. Is always in PCM.

- Also the Audio button says Not Available and I can't configure the speaker level is deleted from the menu.

This is my first time soldering small pieces in a board, I think maybe damage some other parts.

I reset with the Clear but did not work.

If someone have any idea will be welcome.

Thanks

Edit: My bad, I have the Audio Out to TV On. Problem Solved.
The receiver until now is working well.

I've successfully repaired my Onkyo TX-SR606!

I ordered 10 pieces of 565-3047-ND (CAP 100UF 10V ELECT POLY RAD) and 10 pieces of 445-2865-ND (CAP CER 1UF 50V Y5V RAD) from Digikey. Total $20.41CAD after shipping and 13% tax.

I replaced the following capacitors with 100uF, matching the colored side of the new caps to the colored side of the old caps: 8072, 8096, 8602, 8607, 8609, 8162.

I added the 1uF capacitors across the following voltage regulators (do not appear to be polarized, any direction works fine): 8651, 8008, 8005, 8654, 8162.

I did not check for a blown fuse under the PCB near the transformer, and I have not performed a factory reset (and have never performed one during my entire ownership period). Everything worked immediately after adding the capacitors.

After the repair:
* OSD displays on HDMI output. Previously did not.
* Xbox 360 (HDMI) is able to output at 1080p instantly. Previously had to wait 15-120 minutes for it to handshake.
* PC (ATI 5670, HDMI) is able to output at 1920x1080 @ 23/24/60Hz now. Previously HD resolutions were glitchy and could only do 1000i @ 60Hz or 1080i @ 23/24Hz.

All you need is a steady hand and good lighting. My soldering iron is ancient and the tip is far from sharp, clean, and precise, yet I was able to do the repair. A precision tip would definitely help if you have the option.

After soldering, wiggle each capacitor's arm to ensure good contact, and touch up soldering where needed. Everything should work after this! (unless your EEPROM chip is damaged).

Default Great, it works except osd menu on tv screen

[B]Thanks a lot for helping the 606 hdmi handshake problem.

Changed 5* 100uF 10Volt en added 4* 1uF 50Volt.

only NO osd on tv

How can i check DTS-HD sound with my receiver via my ASRock Vision 3D htpc.
I connect this with HDMI and an optical cable with my Onkyo.
Search for a DTS movie on YouTube, but the receiver shows (PCM, HDMI, DSP) on receiver screen

I followed the instructions posted and it worked like a charm. Almost seems to work better than new. I am so grateful that someone would take the time to post such clear instructions on how to fix this problem. I wish I had the knowledge to offer something as useful in return. But because I don't all I can offer is my thanks. You saved me $300 thank you so much GhettoSupersta and all the others that helped.

Thanks for all your information. i had handshaking issues on my 606. However all Sound worked. My OSD and Component does not work. I changed the 5x 100 uf caps and all seems to handshake great. Still cannot get the OSD or the Wii to work over component. My hold 'Display' and press 'Standby' then press the Tone button to find the VD does show ????????... Is there a fix for this or is that part of the unit now dead ?... I have not put on the 1uf 50v film caps as the unit is working fairly well and does not get that hot. Please let me know about the ??????? thing Please.. is there anything at all i can do to fix this. I have does the VCR/Standby reset thing as well and still no OSD....

i had exactly the same problems as everyone else: hdmi slowly dying with the 1080p going first. after 1080i stopped working i read up on this forum and wanted to say thank you very much! you saved my 606 :-)

while removing the hdmi board i broke the white 12v power connector and after soldering on the 1F capacitors i realized that there was no way i would be able to replace all the 100F ones without destroying the board (i'm rather bad at soldering), so i hoped for the best with just the add-on ceramic caps, put everything back together and instatly had 1080p handshake, but no sound at all whatsoever. turns out that problem was caused by the broken white 12v cable, i moved it around a bit and now everything is working again. so if you don't have warranty anymore try fixing it! and if you're bad at soldering maybe you can get away without replacing the 100F SMD ones, like me. now let's just hope it keeps on working.

I don't know a diode from a capacitor, but I used the parts list, ordered from Digi-Key and had the parts in three days for $7.27 (including ($2.22) postage - there was no "handling" fee.

Took me all of an hour to remove the board, wiggle the old capacitors off, replace them and then add the four additional bridges (?) to the black thingys.

I no longer have to wait a half hour or more for my PS3 to be recognized and the OnScreenDisplay is back too.

Yeah!!!

I know this is an old thread but it seems to be the most relevant for this receiver.

I did the fix, changing out the caps and also adding the additional ones. After the fix, everything was as it should be, HDMI is switching and OSD came back.

There are two remaining issues however.

1: Before and after the fix, the remote control acts erratically. The manual and other users say that you have to click on Receiver quite often, before clicking on a function in order to enter it so the receiver responds. Yet, it barely ever works.

There is no obvious pattern that I can report either. It simply works sometimes, doesn't most of the time. Fresh batteries doesn't help.

2: While checking things out after the fix, I either changed a setting in error or something went wrong with the unit again. I had been watching an HD DVD being output from HDMI1, when I suddenly realized the image was now smaller and green. There are some skin tones now and then but for the most part, everything has gone green.

Frustrated of course, almost ready to trash this but thought I would post in case someone might have some thoughts.

Thanks very much.

Mike

The green problem went away by turning off the receiver and unplugging it for a day. I'm sure it's something I set but didn't notice which did that. Not sure, we'll see if it goes green in a while after being on.

My main problem now is the remote control not working. I badly need that since I'm using the receiver from another room using an IR extender.
