Basically, what you want from a service center is for them to write the equivalent of a note from your mother for missing a day of school, just so you can game your credit card company to try and have them pay for a new AVR.
No service center is just going to write you any such statement just because you asked for one.

Now if you want the overheating looked at and fixed, then let the service center actually look at it and fix it, and then submit the repair bill to your credit card company for reimbursement if they don't pay the repair center directly.

But just remember, the overheating & shutdown may also be caused by improper use or a issue with your speaker wiring, and not a fault with the AVR.
post #8492 of 8818
I know how to setup and run the AVR properly. The AVR has shut down under normal usage. I now use it as a pre-pro and haven't had a problem since then so I let the issue slide for a while but now that I have thought of this idea I figure it adds weight to what I am asking. Yes the color space issue bothers me tremendously. I understand exactly what's involved with getting Onkyo to admit anything regarding this which is why I never bothered fighting with them about this while my warranty was still valid. I only just recently thought of doing this and I feel it's perfectly justified. They don't even ask for any kind of authorized service center necessarily to make the statement. I mean I suppose I could just take it to an electronics repair shop locally and get a statement. I just thought I would fish for some ideas on here to avoid the hassle of doing that. So I don't know what you mean by "gaming" the credit card company, but if it regards your opinion as to the "ethics" of what I am doing then you are entitled to your opinion. Like I said when I first posted about this, most of us have gotten used to the fact that our expensive AVR doesn't work the way it should. But when we first found out about it, I think just about all of us were pretty pissed about it. And more pissed when Onkyo showed they didn't give a damn. Having a backup extended warranty through my credit card is one of the only reasons I feel comfortable buying such an expensive piece of electronics from a company like this.

Ok guys i need your help!!! My 5 years old son tried to turn on my audio system while i was sleeping and i dont know what he did but now i have no sound when i wanna watch a blue ray movie. Moreover, the receiver is showing me ``direct`` sound when i watch tv or a dvd movie. I tried the dts-hd or surround or whatever other sound format and all i have is the image but no sound....

I'm not a geek with connections but i've tried to check the set up on hardware section and other places but everyhting looks ok.... I have unplugged (didnt tell me if he touch anything there) all my hdmi cables and put them back with the right assignment, the out main receiver hdmi as the hdmi connected directly to my plasma (input 4) and i've turn off zone 2 and 3 as i dont have speakers outside of the room... I dont know where to look at to have sound (and the right one! like dts-hd mstrl) when i put a blue ray movie or how come the only sound i have from my receiver is now DIRECT when i watch tv or a dvd....

Can anyone help me???

Hi Albator, did you try the Audio Sel button? Its possible that it got set to Analog or Multich.

Yes and it doesnt work... anyway, isnt analog only with non hdmi? all my connections are with hdmi cables. The only time i saw the receiver with dts-hd signal was when i put at the set up hardware section (7.5) the hdmi audio to on (but no sound anywhere so i turn it to off and then i got back my ``direct`` sound.....

I,m sure it is a stupid problem of set up but i cant figure it out...and i dont wanna to put 100$ to the geek squad for them to come up here and find it...

Check the BD player "HDMI Audio Out" is set correctly.

the BD player hdmi out is connected to IN1 on the receiver...

I was asking about settings in the BD player.

IMO, if pressing the "Listening Mode", "THX", "Stereo", etc... buttons doesn't change anything then try turing off the receiver and unplugging the power cord from the wall output. Wait about 30 min to a hr and reconnect power and see if this helps.
post #8499 of 8818
A few simple things to double check: First obviously make sure your speaker cables are securely plugged in (if plugs, or that the wires are securely screwed in to the binding posts) on both the 905 and the speakers themselves. Then make sure no RCA's are plugged into the pre-outs if you are using the internal amps of the 905. Then in the 905's settings, check your HDMI inputs that you are choosing the right source. Then in Speaker config make sure all of your speakers are turned on with a crossover chosen. Then just check and make sure that HDMI Audio Out is turned off in Hardware setup/HDMI. While you're at it, go into Miscellanous/OSD and make sure Immediate Display is off - won't affect your issue but while you're here just make sure it's off. Then if it still doesn't work, try different sources for example a DVD player or HD-DVR, to narrow it down and see if you get audio out of them. If you don't get audio from any source then you know it's the AVR/speakers/cables, again double check everything. If you get audio from another source then you have to go through all your blu ray player settings. If nothing stands out, do a reset to factory defaults and then check it again.

Thanks guys for your help!!! It worked!!!! I have unplugged from the wall the receiver, waited for 2 hours and then when i plug it in.... DTS hd came back on my blue ray as other sounds format!!! The only funny thing now is i have to reset my speakers as the backsound is way louder than the front!

Is that kind of problem normal after a 3 years usage ? Hopefully it wont happen again but if it does i now know what to do!!! Thanks again!!!
post #8501 of 8818
My unit has been working flawlessly so far. It's one of the first units that were made. My 905 sits on top of my AV cabinet, so it gets plenty of air. Heat and voltage spikes kill electronics.
post #8502 of 8818
Hi Guys,

My trusty 805 just went out on me about 10 days ago. I am thinking about buying a 905. Would this be a step up to my 805, would you recommend the 905?

What should I look for as far as trouble areas, proper settings, etc? I will be connecting it to a Mits HC3000 projector, Pioneer Elite 05FD Blu-ray player, Dish VIP 722, any handshake problems you think?

Would very much appreciate your thoughts and comments on this. This thread is just way way too long to read all of it as I need to buy a receiver very soon. Other options I am considering are, 875 and 876. Thanks everyone.

I have 905 and 607. I really like both overall. Things I dislike (both unless otherwise specified):
HDMI switching lag time
Firmware upgradability (horrible process)
GUI looks like DOS
Poor Reon implementation in the 905
Lack of simultaneous HDMI outputs in the 905
Units run very hot. Not cabinet friendly.
More optical inputs

HI ALL. WWEEEELLLLL...... in this time in the game; i would HIGHLY SUGGEST that you stay away of the 905. YES i own one. IT GETS HOT!! I have four 120mm fans to cool it. it has a 1.09 firm ware; sense purchase, I was blessed with that. But there is still SOME hand shake issues. The PS3 at a couple of times a year loses complete recognition. But if i do this and that, it is working. It is a wonderful HTAVR. BUT if you can not get one with the latest firm ware; for around a grand. Not bad. BUT there is so much to pick from:http://www.us.onkyo.com/prod_class.cfm?class=Receiver : and i am saving some penny's . Do i like mine? HELL YEA!!: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?ai...1&l=0316c37082 : so that 5008 is my next upgrade; and gonna give this to my kid. WHO SAYS HELL YEA!!.

Many thanks to those who replied, are there any other 905 owners who would like to chime in, would love to hear from you.

HI ALL. WEELL. There is a way to see. You got to hit a couple of buttons in a sequence to see the eternal temp. The hottest it got was like 134*. That after some really rocking with i think FINDING PRIVATE RYAN. OR maybe the new STAR TREK. But after the fans like you see, the blue glow. the temp is around 95-100* on average.

Hi, could you tell me which buttons to hit in order to check the temp? Also where did you get your fans and what is the model number, how many are you using? Thank you.

HI ALL, first you owe me money, it took me 20 min to find the manual hiding in a place i wouldn't forget. You can do a forum search. But here goes." TO DISPLAY FIRMWARE AND TEMP. >hold< DISPLAY BUTTON THEN HIT STANDBY, you display should change; QUICKLY HIT SETUP BUTTON." it toke a couple of tries before i got the hang of it, but you got to be quick, and all the buttons is on the AVR itself NOT THE REMOTE. if it starts to smoke it not my fault

YES IT WORKS. the unit needs to be on i have the tuner on once you hit and hold "display" you should see the screen change from waiting to unknown> hit "standby" this will give you firmware then QUICK hit setup to get either known temp or the hottest it has gotten in a previous use.

Hi Guys ,

i also have an Onkyo 905. Now i want to buy a 3D TV and 3D BluRay Player.
How do I connect the 3D bluray player ? It will be the Samsung 6900.

Is it right , that i have to connect the video via hdmi directly with the tv because the onkyo cannot handle it ? How do i connect the audio then ?

Please help i don?t want to buy a new a/v receiver....

The Onkyo 905 does not support HDMI1.4 which most 3D enabled players are using (I think the PS3 is the only exception). To carry the HD audio to the 905 you will need a second HDMI output (many players will have them i.e. Samsung BD-C7900.
post #8515 of 8818
FreeFalcon, please have a look at this

and give it a try.
Maybe it works... in any case, let us know.

Sorry but this is a long thread and it's not at the top (we need a Wiki at the top of these threads) but where do I find the latest firmware update and procedure. I'm on 1.05 and I think it's up to 1.09. Can someone send me a link?

HI ALL. I HAVE A 905; AND IT DO HAVE A 1.09 FIRMWARE. BUT IT CAME THAT WAY. BUT WERE? I DO NOT KNOW. TRY ONKYO. BUT THE 905 IS PACKED AWAY. THIS IS WHAT IS IN IT PLACE NOW.....http://www.us.onkyo.com/model.cfm?m=...s=Receiver&p=i NOTHING WRONG WITH THE 905; no issues. it is just put away. you want it .... pm me.

Hey Guys,

I'm sure this has been asked, but I didn't have the time to weed through the search results.

I have the 905 (DUH!), a PS3, and a new Sony KDL-55HX800 3D TV. The PS3 and Sony TV are 3D compatible (the TV requires the optional transmitter, but that's not a problem depending on the outcome of this issue). Since th TX-NR905 was manufactured prior to 3D implementation, it does not generally support it.

What I was wondering, is if you set the HDMI mode to "Through" in the 905 would you still be able to enjoy Blu-ray 3D video on your TV whilst hearing all the full lossless audio codecs on the 905?
post #8519 of 8818
Ok, I have no speakers hooked up to my 905 and use the tv for speakers. I am running one hdmi cable to my tv. If I run hdmi into the reciever, then I get audio out from the tv. If I run component and analog sound into the receiver I get NO sound from the tv. I have tried from both my wii and dvd player. Can anyone help? Thank You.
