I have a Denon 4308ci that unfortunately broke last night in a thunderstorm. The HDMI board appears to have died and I get no output to my TV now. I looked for stuff on Google and couldnt find much on replacement parts. I am not sure if it is an easy fix or if it is even worth trying to fix? I tried a hard reset and everything resets / flashes like a normal hard reset but no TV output. The zone 2 speakers still work just fine so I think the amps are fine and the HDMI board is out.

Any advice / help?

I guess the best thing to do would be to go to the Denon site and find the closest Denon Service Center and see if they even have the necessary parts ( HDMI board ) to do a repair. I have a 5308ci and the parts are all but gone for that unit. I'm 240 miles away from a Super Service Center and have had to make the trip twice, once for repair and once for an upgrade.

Denon AVR X7200WA, Emotiva XPR-5, Emotiva XPA-7, Sony XBR 75" 850C, Oppo BDP-103D, Roku 4.
DefTech BP7000SC (L/R), CLR3000 (C), SM55 (FH), UIW BPZ/A (SB), UIW 75 (TM).
JBL L7 (Sur), EoSone RSR 350 (RH).

PC 2.1 setup. Emotiva Stealth 6, SVS SB2000 sub, Emotiva DC-1 DAC.

That doesn't sound good! Maybe time to just jump to the 4520? :-)

I am saving up for a projector for my dedicated media room so I was hoping for a cheap <$500 fix and it sounds like I might be2 SOL on an 5 year old AVR....

Anyone else have any advice?

If available, the HDMI board will likely run about $200-$300 + another $90 for labor. Check the link below for service centers in your local area or depending on your location, you may want to consider shipping the unit to the factory service center PanurgyOEM in NJ for a quicker turnaround (that is if the board is still available).

That said, your money is likely better served going towards the 4520CI with the upgraded Audyssey MultEQ XT32. Give Craig as AVScience.com a "call" for his best price, although note they're going so fast he has a hard time keeping them in stock for that price.

Indeed.

My AVR-3310 died in November. I decided to put the money it would cost to repair it toward a new AVR-3313.

That's one of the best decisions I ever made. biggrin.gif
