Hey folks -
First I just want to thank you all so much for providing such a valuable resource. I purchased a TX-SR606 about a month before CC went out of business. I guess 2-years ago? Year and a half? Of course no receipt because that was there big selling point - they keep receipts on file for you!
Anyways, my HDMI switching was acting up, taking a very long time until it would "warm up".
I bought a new TX-SR608, then a few weeks later found this so thought I'd take a whack at fixing my old one.
Long story short - I couldn't figure out how to get the damn power cable disconnected and ended up breaking it.
I did resolder all capacitors as described here.
Any advice now? I thought about disconnecting the cable from the other side, and simply hardwiring each wire to it's terminal (how do I determine which is which?), but where it connects to the otherboard seems more difficult to remove and I didn't want to risk breaking that side too!
I COULD try soldering each connection directly leaving the cable intact, but it would be very awkward to work like that, and further more I STILL have the trouble of determining which wire connects to which pin.
The board is etched "Power / Ground / Power / Groud" so I imagine it would be very bad to guess which goes where.
Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated. I feel like I'm so close to fixing this.
