When I enter setup and while in the setup screen choose another input, the unit stays in the setup screen but up/down keys will stop to function. Pressing home returns normal operation.
Does everybody have this bug or is my unit faulty?
Edit: The bug is only present when using the remote up/down buttons: The up/down buttons on the receiver works.
oscarav098: Thank you for taking the time to do the testing, write-up, and adding pictures. VERY helpful!
I have a TX-NR808 that started having the remote control symptom. Searching Google brought me to this thread. I decided to buy a can of that spray from Radio Shack and give your idea a shot.
When opening up the case, I wiped my finger across several of the boards. Some were smooth as silk but several were slightly tacky (including the ones you mentioned. I started with the front display board and cleaned front and back. I was able to get a majority of the stuff off with a lot of spray and a soft bristle tooth brush.
I decided not to remove the boards in back but shot them good with the spray and brushed the parts I could. I disconnected the ribbon cable from the front and back and cleaned the connector. Used an air compressor to dry it all in a jiff. I used the entire can and when I was done, only a couple of places were 'super clean'.
Overall the reassembly went smoothly. Reconnected everything in back and tried the remote. Works perfectly. Just finished the project tonight so I can't say that the issue is truly fixed. Might just be a fluke but it sure looks promising!
I'll let ya'll know how she holds up.
Got a call back from Onkyo Tuesday afternoon, left a message. "Don't use the label inside the box, use the label sent by e-mail." Label in the box is to the "facility that will be closing, the unit will not be repaired there" That's fine, nice to hear... but
They said the box I received... mine ain't here yet (suppose to arrive sometime today).
Haven't searched for the phone number of the new service center... (I will be talking to someone there before I ship this beast off). When I called on Monday (attempting to get the new label via e-mail) they could not give me the name of the shop/service center, much less a phone number of where I was to be sending my baby. This was provided the initial time I called and started this process, and was really told to do just that... call the shop for the lowdown, the inside word, regarding turn around time, parts availability and the like. Fortunately for me the label I got by e-mail had a name above the service providers name! Now I know who I should talk to!
(Sorry folks, night shift worker on my way to bed, not gonna happen today... but I promise I will pass on all I get from them when I get it!)
FYI, my serial numbers 8th = 0, 9th = Y, so I guess I got a "late edition", November 2010, purchased 1/6/2011.
Some of you all... ya tear me up/apart.
I'd kinda like to know how to set up the fans... heat is electronics #1 enemy, but I don't think that should have to be necessary to minimize the chances of your receiver developing (or in our situations, repaired units from again developing) these fatal malfunctions. I bet it real simple to do, and probably not very expensive ($20-$30?), but I am a touch upset I haven't got it already, it could have helped... I'll never know. (Has anyone with accessory fans up and running experienced this?)
Then, to make matters worse, some of ya all calmly, nonchalantly make my jaw drop and eyes bug out as I see the pics and read the tales. "...so then I..."
I laugh, I cry, I wish I had a little more knowledge... and a lot more guts! As I have said before, the folks you run into here at
AVSF are amazing, intelligent, sophisticated and probably good looking too! Thanks for tolerating my rants, it was a long shift and I'm kinda rummy!
