The Onkyo TX-NR3007/TX-NR5007 common questions/issues/hints/answers thread - Page 157

It happens on multiple inputs. The two I had been using was the front AUX hdmi input for the htpc and the rear input 1 for the BD player. This is a new issue and doesn't seem like a handshake issue. I've been using this same BD player with the 3007 since the day I got it. At the rate that this has been occurring I believe it will get worse with time. I'll need to find a receipt.

Looks like I'm not getting a new projector this year. I am annoyed. frown.gif

Hello!

I purchased a TX-NR5007 in October of 2009 from NewEgg and so far it has performed flawlessly. Recently I was listening to some SACDs with my Denon DVD-1940CI through the analog output and I noticed that when I select the analog mode in the 5007 no sound comes out, but if I select the multi channel mode it works. I remember that in the past it worked with the analog mode selected. I tried changing the set up in the 1940CI and in the 5007 but no luck, anybody else have seen this issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers!

I have a set on Klipsch XF-48's, which are active speakers, as my front 2 speakers. They are hooked up to my receiver TX-NR1007 with speaker wire. My question is,
since the speakers use their own built in amps, does the Onkyo "rest" or cool down the 2 channels in side it that would normally power 2 passive speakers? If not,
does the it just waste this power or is it send to the other speakers hooked up? I am wondering if the Onkyo would stay cooler if I used the line level outs on the speakers
instead of speaker wire, if this made a difference as to how the Onkyo's internal amps worked.

thanks.

I had an onkyo 5007 with tipical hdmi board fail. I have send the board to germany, and they for 180€ (i know... too expensive...) repair the hdmi board. Now i want to improve cooling of the avr, what i must do?
I have read a lot of methods for do it, but i'm not sure what is the better.
Methoods like this.-




Please help me, i don't want have the same problem in 6 months or 1 year..
Thanks.

Two 120mm PC cooling fans placed on top of the AVR towards the rear, arranged so they suck warm air out of the unit, will help keep the internals cool and this may prolong equipment life. Excess heat usually shortens the life of electronics.  The fans are cheap and good ones are very quiet too.  I use these:

Thanks for your reply. Only two is enough? how do you breed it? do you have some photos?
Thanks.
post #4687 of 4713
I used two of these http://www.coolerguys.com/840556094272.html

Works nice because they blow out the back, so if you don't have alot of room above like me it is perfect.
post #4688 of 4713
I made a mount to drop in one fan, and tied it into the stock fan wiring... as well as added a heatsink to the DSP processor with thermal tape.... in attempt to keep heat out from under the HDMI board and help cool the chip off.

Some notes and images found here:

Thanks very much for the replys.

thenextdon13, have you done the modification of voltaje and add one internal fan?
I'm very interested in something like this, because i don't like put fans in the outside of the avr.
If you done this, how long have been working fine with this?
Thanks.
post #4690 of 4713
mitsurugi-
I have not done the voltage modification. If i could get my hands on one of the small boards to do it, i would.

Looks like i did the fan update on in December 2012.
I have not had additional issues since then. However I am not a heavy user (2-4 days a week for a couple hours each of those days)

I guess I'm doing something wrong by blowing air from a small fan INSIDE the unit.mad.gif

Yeah, you want to suck the hot air OUT. I use these on top of my 609. http://www.amazon.com/Coolerguys-Dual-80mm-Cooling-Fans/dp/B002NVC1DS/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1382491113&sr=8-3&keywords=coolerguys+fans

The receiver stays COOL to the touch!

I don't disagree with old corps, but-
in addition you want to have some air motion _under_ the hdmi board, in my opinion. If you have it running a while with the case off, you can feel how much heat is built up between the hdmi board and the board below it.

So - optimum situation- something 'stirring' air out of the dead zone between the boards that has no ventillation, and something sucking air out the top..i would say.
post #4694 of 4713
I think, i will put one fan inside and two fans outside. Like thenextdon13 said, could be the optimum situation (i don't like put fans outside, but if is the best... i must do it).

Yes - don't blow the hot air back in!  Suck it out. All you need do is turn over the fans.

post #4696 of 4713
I bought one of these for $99 and it works great. It has three fans in it and it sits just perfectly over the part of the receiver that gets the warmest.
post #4697 of 4713
I was thinking about put two of this low profile fans (only 12cm): http://www.scythe-usa.com/product/acc/068/sy1212sl12_detail.html inside and conect between the two front fans of the avr.
What do you think about it? i'm scare because is not designed to feed 2 more fans...
post #4698 of 4713
I think the Scythes would work very well....I am going to do the same to a 3007 AVR I have in for repair, and also to my trusty old 606 that is still going strong. First though I have to do the over reflow method on the HDMI board as I tried one attempt at heat gun and its not worked...I went up to 330F but only peaked there...maybe need to get the full 380 for a few minutes and see if that works.

Any one done the heat gun method and have any timings and temps?
post #4699 of 4713
I was thinking and will not put inside fan, because if i connect to the other fans, they only starts at 50ºC. I will put a usb fan in the top.
I think a good laptop cooler could be fine.
I will buy this: http://www.hardwareanalisis.es/e107_plugins/content/content.php?content.630.3
What do you think about it?
For me is too expensive buy in a foreing country a coolerguys fans (i'm from spain and shipping+duties will be a lot of).
post #4700 of 4713
Yesterday my hdmi board repaired has arrived and all works fine except passthrough audio. Audio always pcm with hdmi cable. Where could be the problem?
I have tried with htpc, ps3, laptop and two type of hdmi cables.
Onkyo 5007 never bitstream dts or ac3 audio. Alway in pcm multichanel...
I have tried with spdif and works ok, decoding the avr dts or ac3 signal, but in hdmi always pcm...
Thanks.

Hello ,

I have a NR3007, it was repaired a few months ago, HDMI board.

Once again, I am experiencing problems : the unit does not stick on initializing but I have to switch between tuner, usb, DVD,... before having sound.

Since this afternoon, I don't get any image out of the unit, or it freezes after a few seconds or minutes... All the cables were checked and I also tried the HDMI sub exit, no way...

Is it the HDMI board again ?

Thanks in advance
post #4702 of 4713
filou2, i think you have a problem again with hdmi board, but i'm not sure 100%.

My avr is fine, the problem with bitstream digital audio was with computer drivers, now are working right.
With lapton fan sucking air, the temperature is 29º and before use it were 37º.
What are your temperatures?
I'm using 2 buttons for see the temp.
post #4703 of 4713
What is normal temperature in Onkyo 3007?
In mine unit is from 32 C- 36 C. Normal loud. What is maximum temerature for 3007?
Thanks for reply.
Regards,
nesone

Hi everyone! I need to buy used hdmi module to TX-NR3007! Damaged or good condition! It doesnt matter!!!!!
Please contact with me if someone have it REGARDS GUYS! my mail: mcgustoo@gmail.com , Skype: jaroslaw.janota
post #4705 of 4713
My 3007 bit the dust a second time. Maybe Onkyo will help me out again.
post #4706 of 4713
My 3007 in service since 10/2009. No problems. Now I have never performed any updates....its rack mounted all open in the back so maybe that has kept the heat from being a problem. Thinking of upgrading but figure I will wait till 4k,HDMI 2.0 something compelling
post #4707 of 4713
Again Onkyo has agreed to fix my unit (out of warranty), under a one-time courtesy repair. I had a fan that sucked air out of the top of the unit for the last year. Not sure this was a good idea. This would be the second repair.
post #4708 of 4713
I got my one of my two 5007s repaired by Onkyo too. The other showed no issues, and neither did my 1007. I sold all of them and upgrades to a 717, 3010 and a 5010. No issues with any of them so far, although very infrequently the 717 has required a hard reset (unplugging and replugging) for all the network functions to be available.

Onkyo 3007 - Multi Zone

I want to connect 3007 to Projector and 4 Speakers in my patio - on the multizone option. How can i connect 4 speakers from this receiver....

I dont want to buy new receiver, splitter for each components etc...
post #4710 of 4713
After my 906 crapped out in March of 2011 and I choose not to repair if because of the costs, I purchased a reconditioned TX NR5007 from Onkyo. I started having the no sound problem about a month ago and now it's not working at all.

I did purchase a 5 year extended warranty on this unit, which takes me out to 2016, and I'll be contacting Accessories 4less tomorrow to have the unit returned.
My question is:

Are the 5007's being repaired or upgraded? If upgraded to what?
Has anyone else had any experience with warranty claims from Accessories 4Less?

Thanks
