Ha! I almost broke one of these today. The component is an inductor as noted above; you may have success to simply solder some lead wires onto it and put it back in place. Unless I'm mistaken, all that's inside that plastic cylinder is a ceramic coated wire of a specific diameter wrapped in a coil of a specific diameter a specific number of times... You could even make your own out of magnet wire from radio shack (I know I have in the past when I couldn't find an off-the-shelf inductor).

Got my SR606 as a refurb in Oct 2008 and other than one of the components inputs losing one channel within 6 months, has been working fine since then.

Now in the last month it has been giving me trouble with some audio issues. After correcting a loose center channel connection that was a global problem, I thought it might have been a problem with my Roku 3. But, after checking other HDMI inputs, it looks like a bad audio channel on just one of the 4 HDMI inputs. No issue with the other ports or OSD and no issue with video, except for some intermittent dropouts that I at first thought was a Roku issue.

Since I only have 3 HDMI devices, I am back in business now by moving the Roku to the unused input.
But, I probably have this repair coming up in my future, so appreciate the efforts of those who contributed to the DIYs

SUCCESS!

For the last year my 2010 TX-SR876 has been slow to handshake, requiring several minutes warm-up before it would successfully negotiate over HDMI but worked flawlessly otherwise. Oh, it would sometimes recognize my Comcast box on SD channels right away but failed on HD channels until several minutes of warm up. After reading much of this thread, I decided to try replacing the 100uF caps. The HDMI board has 5 of them on the top and 8 on the bottom. I ordered 20 Nichicon RS81C101MDN1JT caps from Newark.com. Based on some bulletins regarding the SR606 which should have little relevance to my 876, I decided to start by replacing C8609 (center bottom), although I planned to replace most if not all 13 100uF caps. After my embarrassingly primitive soldering skills nearly destroyed the board, I stopped after just replacing C8609 and tested the unit. IT WORKS! No warm up needed. Confirmed 3 times after several hours cold. Handshakes with all my components without delay. ALRIGHT!

Other than my poor soldering the only real challenge was the 5 wire power plug. I managed to avoid destroying that by reading that you had to press down on it to release the wires, documented in the first post.

Thanks to all the contributors to this thread!

Thanks for your post. I've got an 876 that I really babied. So found your fix interesting. How about posting on the 876 Owners Thread for other people that are having problems?

First, I would like to say, thank you, to all, for contributing all this info. I have a 706 that needs to be recapped. I have a question about how some of you guys are soldering the caps on the board. Are you guys pulling out the old legs and sticking the new legs through the board and soldering ? Or leaving them in and just soldering on top of the board ? I just watched the video on youtube and it looks like he just soldered on top ?

Also, I know this isn't the 706 thread but i see some those guys posted in here. It seems all the links are down for the 706 service manual, Can anyone help with that ? I'm wanting to order everything soon (Tonight) and i would like to see what other caps i could buy and replace. Thanks

TX-SR606 owner here.

So I finally gained some courage and replaced my dying 85C caps (installed a few years ago after the first HDMI death) with new 100uF/105C/50V caps.
The process itself was much less daunting than I had anticipated.

The problem now, is... all of my HDMI inputs have a severe blue tinge to them. Yikes!

How can I determine which cap is causing this to happen? Or do the caps need to "warm up" first?

edit: False alarm! I popped the board out, touched up the soldering a tiny bit, re-inserted it back into the 606 (you REALLY need to push on those three connectors on the side to get them fully seated), and I'm now getting full colour, full 1080p passthrough, and best of all, instant connections to all HDMI inputs when I power on the receiver. Looks like I can keep saving my money for at least a few more months.

Solder the legs onto the pad after the original caps are carefully removed so the pad is not disturbed. The video you watched was probably this one.

In the comments under this video, Jason Rood added this comment 2 months ago.

"I just used your method to repair an SR706. Thanks for the clear and concise guide. For others with the SR706, there are 12 total 100uF 4V Caps. I had only ordered 10, so I had to choose which ones to replace. Based on comments on another forum I started with the Caps on the underside of the board that were closest to being right over one of the heatsinks on the assumption that these were the caps that faced the most heat and probably failed first. These were the most inboard and forward of the Caps. Once I replaced these, the HDMI switch worked just fine, but I chose to replace all of the remaining 100uF 4V Caps on the underside of the board and 3 of the 5 on the top side of the board, because, well, I had the replacements and I didn't want to take the chance that the others would fail eventually. The 2 Caps I did not replace in case anyone else cares were each located right between 2 larger Capacitors and would have been a bit more difficult to replace. They were also farther away from any heat source."

Thank you, for confirming this. Yes, that's the video i watched. Not having to desolder anything is a whole lot easier. I will tackle this over the weekend... My caps should be here friday. Thanks again.

Mixed results here...

For some background info I have an Integra DTR 5.8, which looks to be based off the Onkyo TX-SR605. I was having similar issues with my receiver to those listed here, after using it one evening the TV started showing a "no signal" message on its HDMI input. It turned out the receiver's HDMI connections had stopped working entirely. A few days later the component video connections went out as well. I considered taking the receiver to a repair shop, but the repair estimate was in the $100-$200 range and not guaranteed to fix the issue.

Well, I tried repairs mentioned in this thread and it seemed to bring the HDMI and component video connections back from the dead, but not problem free. The receiver still can take a while to recognize an HDMI source and after several hours of use the HDMI indicator on the receiver's front display starts flickering on and off with the HDMI signal dropping out in conjunction with the flickering on the display.

For the actual repair, this is what I did on the HDMI board:
  • replaced all 9 the 100uf 4V capacitors
  • replaced all 3 of the 220uf 4V capacitors
  • replaced a 22uf 16V capacitor near the HDMI out
  • replaced a 4.7uf 50V capacitor on the bottom
  • added 4 of the 1uf filter capacitors to the regulators
  • I also had to replace a 22uf 4V capacitor on top that I removed it by mistake
I have pictures, but my post count is too low to link to them.

My guess is there's something else on the HDMI board that's out of whack, maybe one or more of the 470uf 16V or 22uf 4V capacitors, but I'm done with repairs for the time being. I had considered replacing all the capacitors on the HDMI board, but that would have been a lot of work and I didn't think it would be necessary. Anyway, I thought I'd post my results on the off chance it might help someone else out. I can list the part numbers I ordered if needed.
