Frustrated (as we all are) that resellers and manufacturer are not more supportive beyond, ship it back and we'll repair.

Was advised by reseller to ship it to 'regional' service center....hmmm Houston to Michigan, that's convenient.

Guess I'll ship it, replace it and sell it when it returns. No confidence in this unit or Onkyo at this point. Suggestions for replacement unit?

ANY Onkyo servicenter could repair these products. Call your local Onkyo/Integra dealer and if they do not have a servicenter in house, ask them where they send their product-there may be an non-listed, but authorized warranty center in your town.

Started with hdmi source flashing on and off, progressed to changing inputs on it's own, and last night while we were watching a sporting event it froze. No response from remote or front panel. Reset and was fine for 15-20 minutes then froze. Reset then again about 5 minutes later. Reset and then was fine for the rest of the evening.
15 day return window to retailer is now over so now time to deal with Onkyo. Blah.

Hi SpartanVoodo, don't blame you.

Wow, this problem appears to carry over to the newly release model.

True, but per Onkyo, you must send it to the regional center for repair. Period.

That's what they told me.

I dont' want it repaired. I want my money back and I want to run as far from Onkyo as I can. Never, ever again. If they won't, it's going back on my credit card and they can eat it.

That is an inaccurate statement on their part. We are authorized for sales and service. You have purchased an Onkyo made product from an authorized dealer and we can, if we want to, service it and be reimbursed by Onkyo for that repair.
You can take it to ANY authorized Onkyo servicenter and have it repaired at no charge. But that choice is yours. AND, if the local servicenter feels it is worth the $60 reimbursement fee, they will accept it.
Hey, if u can get it refunded/exchanged ... more power to you.

Outlaw did the same thing for me when I had to send back a bad amp that had come off the line.

I knew what day the replacement amp was coming, and all I had to do was box up the lemon and slap the shipping label on it so the UPS delivery guy could take it away on the same dolly he used to bring me the replacement -- but I couldn't find the email with the shipping label PDF. Frantically, expecting the UPS guy any moment, I called Outlaw customer service, explained the situation, and they calmly told me they'd mailed it to me. It was sitting in my mailbox (which I only check twice a week or so, it's just junk mail most of the time). But for good measure, they emailed me a label when I asked them to.

Snail mail? In 2011?

That's odd them telling you this unless you purchased it from some 'questionable' dealer (AND I am not saying you did !) and they are trying to verify where the box is addressed from and to establish the correct serial number on the rear of the unit.
We have Onkyo/Integra/OPro sent to us from all over...primarily Tx to be repaired in and out of warranty...we would not repair the in-warranty units unless they reimbursed us.
Did you get a reps name ? Be glad to discuss this with them if you'd like me to....

Good luck with that. They (Onkyo) won't even respond to my e-mail (which mentioned the.... dum dum dum! suggestion of a wide reaching problem).

Same with me...I gave them my zip, and they gave me two authorized repair centers in my city. Not once did they ever mention anything about mailing back the unit.

My story....

1. TX NR808
2. Dec 2010
3. Amazon.com
4. System started switching on/off on its own. Then cycling through A/V inputs.
5. 4-5 months
6. Intermittent at first, consistent later
7. Experiencing all 4 symptoms.
8. Sent unit twice for repairs to DTR in Denver. They claimed to have changed the front panel electronics. Problem still persists. Now so far its only the remote that doesn't work.
9. Problem re-appeared as soon as I opened it out of the box and plugged it in.

I am returning my unit to Amazon (if they will take it) or make it into an expensive science project.

I have two of the effected receivers without any problem - yet.
So I like this part best: ***This issue will be handled for you even if you are out of warranty

Now I don't need to think about getting an extended warranty just for this issue.

I have an unaffected (to date) model as well, so I totally agree that it is good news they will service all units.

1- Model TX-NR808

2- Purchase Date 14/12/10
Hooked up late january.
3- Bought from Crutchfield (glad i did)

4- Symptoms.... had every symptom described.

5- First symptom appeared after 3 months of use

6- Locked up, could not get it to work, so it was unplugged and boxed
And a replacement marantz SR5005 was brought home.

Later found this thread (late may) called Crutchfield and they said they'll
take it back and sent me a 809, the 809 arrived today....Now i think i could sell it and stick with the marantz.

Top notch support from Crutchfield and.....

Low and crappy QC from Onkyo

Here is an update to my status. I picked up my receiver (608) today. So far so good. The service rep told me that there was a 'crack' in the soldering at the remote IR unit. Depending on how heated the receiver got, the crack would most likely expand and make it lose contact. He basically resoldered that point and made sure all the other solders were ok too.

I will test it for a week and I guess I will know if this really solved the issue.

3. Place where purchased: Amazon

4. First symptom to appear: As of now, it randomly decides to respond to its remote controller. Some times it will refuse to power on till I manually press its receiver power button. Some times, it will power on by remote and not any other control. And here is the beauty: Sometimes, it will not respond to its own remote, but will respond to volume control button of a harmony 550 remote programmed to control it. Suddenly it will start working and suddenly it wont. However, manual controls by pressing buttons on the receiver always works.


5. How long after purchase until first symptom appeared? : Within a few weeks

6. Was the symptom consistent or intermittent?: Intermittent but very very frequent. I'd say it doesnt work more than it does.


7. Which symptom(s) (listed above) are you experiencing?: I've reported in item 4


8. If you have contacted Onkyo, and sent in your unit for repair, what where you told the problem is/was?: I am yet to contact them will do it tomorrow


9. If your unit was repaired did the problem come back, if so how long did it take to reappear?: NA

Maybe we can get some real answers from Onkyo and some real solutions.

So we have to spend $50 plus dollars to have the unit shipped to a service rep to resolder a connection??
Crappy, Crappy QC Onkyo!!
We should not be responsible for shipping these units back!

I called the number in the service bulletin and was told to try a master reset, check the remote ID code and if either didn't work, to ship the unit to michigan for repair...

I loosing patience and faith with Onkyo...

Also wishing I would have purchased from Crutchfiled for a "hassle-free" return.

no if you call with this issue it sounds like they are fessing up and sending people shipping labels. At least if you throw a bit of a fit when talking to them they will fairly easily give you a shipping label... even though their stupid asses send it by snail mail

I think my remote has been messed up for quite some time now - and more recent the powering on by itself.
I should probably call them and send it in anyways, in response to the link.

Finally onkyo/integra is acknowledging the issue and making clear they are going to take care of those with it

This is good.

Hopefully we will read about fixed units in the conning weeks
