Found this thread last night. I have had my SR805 in storage for about 6 months and finally moved into the new house today. Was I upset when I couldn't get anything to handshake with the HDMI. I tried everything and was about to give up until I came across this thread. So reading the entire thread last night after moving the entire day I woke up after 3 hours of sleep and went to Fry's. They had only 0-5 of each capacitor except the 100 35v 105c ones. So I took 15 of them at $1.29 just in case I needed more. Came back to the new house and took apart everything. Pretty simple really. One connector with that push down clip thing, one white ribbon cable you just pry back and forth, one clear plastic thing you take needle nose pliers to undue it, cut 2 zip ties, take a piece of tape off one connector, unscrew the hdmi board from outside, and then pull away at the two connectors.
It took some getting used to soldering on this as I bought a $3 soldering iron, $1 sponge and $3 of solder. The trick for me was get the iron nice and hot, dip on the sponge then hold the solder over the board and gently press the board. Magically the solder would travel and make a nice neat blob. Then take some solder onto the iron, and rub up and down on the capacitor. Next push the 2 solder points together and press the iron.
I replaced all of the 100 4v ones with the new ones, put everything back together and put the receiver back in the closet to connect. I figured if it didn't work I will just buy a new one. I would rather use that money towards a new TV though!! So I couldn't believe it, on the first try it worked. In the end I replaced 9 capacitors. 2 on the top and 7 on the bottom. Now to test everything and see if I get the OSD back. I think that has been out for over 3 years now. The HDMI just suddenly went while in storage. I also had done the resistor fix when the display went out a couple of years ago. Next up is to order a cooling fan as I really do like this receiver.
