Since I´m new here in this forum, first of all I would like to send my best regards to all members and thanks all the help that you can give me.
So my first post is regarding the Onkyo TX-NR609 HDMI board failure, it seems to be a common problem in this receiver and others onkyo receiver too. So I would like to know if there is a DIY fix for this problem ? like the one presented in the thread called
This worked when my 609 stopped working yesterday...
probably a temp fix, but better than nothing!
Didn't watch the video but I'm guessing the thing is supposed to work once "warmed up?" Could be if there was a bad connection or solder point somewhere, too cold and the metal shrinks so no connection, warm it up and the metal expands and you get a connection...does happen sometimes. What will happen is it will get worse over time and no amount of heating will fix it. Best thing to do is check and make sure all wire connectors are firmly in place, and look for loose/broken wires. Looking for a cracked solder connection is possible but they can be hard to spot.
It's also possible some component is working only when warm, it too will fail after awhile. Trying to find which one can be hard you usually can't tell just by looking unless it burned up (which it won't be if it works sometimes). So unless there is a specific component known to fail a lot it's probably pretty hopeless for someone who doesn't have the equipment needed to diagnose bad electronics.
