my Living Room system's Onkyo 3008 (new, not refurb), purchased around 2 1/2 years ago from an authorized dealer, just broke: its "Network" icon/LED no longer shows up when i try to use Pandora. this effectively rendered my entire Living Room/Kitchen system useless: no Pandora, no projector, no DVD, no Netflix. Kindly note please that i do NOT hear the solenoid clicking to turn on the power amplifiers in my 3008 anymore either: that is, after initial turn on, all the various "active speakers' icon LEDs" on the left side of the display are no longer showing up, indicating that the solenoid turning on the power amps are indeed not turning on the power amplification, in addition to the Network not being connected to the 3008 -- so i see this as TWO issues happening together. Picture of the front panel LEDs is attached below.
This appears to me as NOT being the same as the fried HDMI board like i had with my 807 (Bedroom system AVR) which i had last year.
Kindly note please that my 3008 is controlled by a Crestron remote as installed by my audio/visual installer.
i looked at Onkyo USA's website and found that the new Model 1010 and 3010:
while the 3010 would initially seem like (by virtue of its numbering system) the natural replacement of my 3008, it doesn't seem so, actually. While the 5010 and the 3008 are both 9.2, and the 1010 being 7.2 only, i'm using my 3008 for "5.1 + Front High Left and Front High Right" only, effectively, that is merely 7.1.
May I ask if the 1010 is the suitable replacement to my 3008? Both 1010 and 3010 have 140 watt/ ch; almost all specs are identical, while the 3010 has independent transformers.
I'm wondering if the 1010 can do Front High Left and Front High Right plus 5.1?
kindly note that the 3008 is used for 7.1 as in "Front L+R, Center, Rear L+R, Subwoofer, and Front High L+R", i.e. 7.1. While i recognize the "Front Wides before Front Highs" adage, there is no option in my Living Room, so i thought that having Front Highs would be better than not having Front Highs, since i have the ceiling height of 11 Feet.
Thank you very much in advance. Time is of the essence in this instance, as there is zero way to have music or video or tv or any sort in the main space at this point.
I wouldn't know what to do with my 3008 if i do replace it. it would cost money to ship it to Onkyo for fixing it, and what would i do with it if i were to buy the 1010 or the 3010?? Ugh.
not only money down the drain, but a headache as well.
In the picture below, kindly note that there is no "Network" icon/LED on the right side anymore. Additionally, there are no "active speakers' icons" on the left side of this display at all now. As mentioned above, the solenoid didn't "click" when the 3008 is turned on anymore! To me, it indicates that the power amplifiers are not being turned on at all.
