During: Used the radioshack Caps. I remember reading that someone on these forums replaced only the 2 left bottom-side Caps, and it worked. So I took it a step further and replaced the left one, tested the receiver, replaced the 2nd from the left, tested, and it works FLAWLESSLY now. So from my experience, if anyone wants to replace JUST the 2nd from the left cap on the bottom side of the board, they may just hit paydirt!
After: All is well.
June 08: Purchased TX-SR606
May 10: Discovered this thread, started to worry that mine would inevitably fail so considered sending in for warranty before 2 yrs were up.
June 10: Decided that maybe I got lucky with a good one since most failed within 1 yr and decided not to send in.
August 10: HDMI became a bit flaky with PS3, had to turn on components in specific order, cable box okay
December 10: HDMI became very flaky with PS3, sometimes would have to reboot a few times, decide to read up on thread to prepare for worst
Last night: Had to turn off and on PS3 and receiver for 10 minutes until getting it to work, cable box okay
Tonight 8:00pm: Cannot sync with cable box AT ALL, forget about PS3, this thing is dead.
8:01-8:45pm: Search this thread, find radio shack part number (272-1028), find local radio shack (1.5mi away) and call up to find out they are open until 9:30. search through boxes of crap to find old soldering iron, we are good to go.
8:45: go outside, find car is under 6" of snow. this is going to take some time to clear
9:10: arrive at radio shack, buy last 4 caps in stock
9:30: surgery begins
10:00: no progress is made on removing board, power cable is the devil
10:30: after much frustration, i rip off cap 2nd to left
11:15: finally get some sort of soldier on the board, but is terrible. i dont care at this point, just want to try it out
11:30: hook up HDMI, cable box: check; ps3: CHECK.. try out turning on ps3 first, then tv, then receiver (big no no since august) and it WORKS!!!!
Time without functioning receiver: approx 3.5 hours
The moral of my story is that nairdasti was correct, and you only need to replace the cap 2nd from the left that is highlighted (C8602) as a quick fix. The receiver is still in pieces and before I put everything back together I will try it again tomorrow with a cold start. I will report back if it does not work. If not, then it works and I am enjoying the movie I wanted to watch tonight.
I plan on buying all the replacement parts listed in this thread online and will replace all the caps if/when this quickfix fails. I will also report back if that happens.
This morning I tried to get the PS3 to start and I couldn't get a picture.. However the cable box worked with ease. Will update after work.
PS3 still wont work on a cold start, more caps must be defective.. Will have to replace more caps
Replaced the four caps highlighted in red here. No change. PS3 wont sync up while the cable box has no problems when cold. Just placed an order with Digikey to resolve this thing. My soldiering was much better tonight than last night.
