I just wanted to let all you guys know that I just successfully repaired my TXSR876 (2010 model) . For over one year, the wait time for the “HDMI handshake” kept getting longer and longer until last month, when it just would no longer recognize a source.
I followed the Utube video on how to fix the TX SR 606, and used the photo showing the capacitors to replace provided by Scottie2 or JonS ( Ithink). Sorry if I am giving credit to the wrong person.
The fix was not that hard. I am not an electronic techie at all, but was able to do it no problem.The hardest part was getting the HDMI board disconnected from the unit, because I was afraid to break it. The receiver works perfectly just as it did when it was new. I used 100uF 16V 105C caps ( amazon)instead of the original 100uF 4V.
I have a question for those more savvy than me with all this stuff. Is this fix going to last because I used higher voltage caps or is it a good idea add some type of a heat sink to the processor on the HDMI and/or a fan for extra cooling. If “yes” where should the fan be placed and where do I get power to run it. If this is been covered before, I apologize but I could not find it.
Thank you in advance for any assistance and a bigger thank you to all those folk that provided the info that allowed me to repair myr eceiver.
One final comment:
I loved Onkyo, but from this day forward, I am not buying or recommending Onkyo to anyone any longer.
