post #8551 of 8818
alright, got a REAL problem... or do i? i dont really know, i checked my firmware last night and it says 1.01 bad? good? dont really know but i do know i cranked it up about lil over half way and was holding steady at 81f with a movie and sounded excellent!
post #8552 of 8818
If the unit runs properly (does not shut itself off) then all is fine. It runs hots; even when not running its hot. Just the way it is.
post #8553 of 8818
Is there someone that runs the actual firmware from the xxx8-series on our 905?
post #8554 of 8818
so is say 80-84f normal when say having it at around a lil less then 3/4 volume with 6 fans blowing air into it? or you think i should alternate and have 2 pulling air while 4 blow in?
post #8555 of 8818
arc troooper;

I am saying do not worry about the temp. It is designed to run hot. Unless it is giving you problems, just use it and don't fret it.
post #8556 of 8818
alright will do

Hi Guys,

Just wondering if anyone might have a suggestion. I received a DOA 876 from a seller about a month ago. Will not power on. Any suggestions on what I might try to get it to power on? Otherwise my only option is to sell on Ebay as is. It is a nice looking unit with all accessories, mic, antennas, manual, remote, power cord, etc. I would love to hear some suggestions, thank you.

We feel for you but the only advice I have is to reset the unit. Why did you accept the unit in the first place?

I bought the unit off Ebay, it was shipped to me as a good working unit, I bought and accepted it in good faith that the buyer was being truthful. What would you have done differently? I had to accept it, it was left on my door step. If you only want to reply with smartass comments then don't bother replying. The buyer did refund my money but he did not want the unit back so I am only trying to get the unit to run so I can use it.

Thanks JChin for the advice, but I have checked all fuses as least the ones I can see and all look good. I think I saw 5 or 6 clear ones and 4 that looked like they were wrapped in white paper so I couldn't tell if they were good or not.

Golffnutt;

Dude you way over-reacted. You got a bad unit; you got your money back. Anything else is gravy.

Maybe so if I took your comment the wrong way. But I still have a very nice receiver sitting here that possibly could be repaired by someone at a reasonable price. That is all I am asking. I did get it to power on. Problem is it will only stay on for about 10-12 seconds then it shuts back off and the red standby lights goes into a blinking mode.

Owners manual says when the power surge protection is activated it will do this. The manual also says to try this to correct:

Disconnect everything from the receiver. Uplug it from the wall for an hour. Turn the volume all the way up to max, then plug it back in.

I did that and it still turns off. Manual says if the above does not work then there is an internal problem and it needs to go back to Onkyo Repair Ctr. I would like to find someone here on this forum who thinks they might be able to fix it. I would be glad to pay a fair and reasonable price for the labor. Is there anyone out there who could help me out??????? Thanks for your help.

I bet there are people here who would pay good money for the HDMI board inside the unit, assuming it is still functional.

I've bought a 905, new, off the Bay right after the 906's hit the street. It's given me flawless service except for cutting out when it got too hot a couple of summer's ago. It's got gobs of power to spare in that I'm only running her in 5.1 iwith a couple of speakers wired to the kitchen. I recently checked the specs on the 5008 and don't see anything there I need. I currently running the following:

Onkyo 905
ADS 1290 Mains
Ohm Walsh 2 rears
HSU VTF 3 Sub
Boston Accoustics Low Pro Center
Oppo BluRay the 83 I think
Time Warner HiDef with DVR
Yamaha CDC
Samsung Late Model 52-Inch LCD

When and IF a new audio format comes out that I HAVE to have I'll spring for whatevers new then, but for now I'm good. I did read through some of the latter posts and will be springing for some fans for summer time use. Thanks for all the information.

I've had my 905 since they first came out. The HDMI board just went out. Since the tech support is non-existent I swore I'd never buy another Onkyo product again. Didn't even check their avrs out. Went right for the Denon AVR-991 after checking the forum for any known issues. Cost me about $100 more than just the cost of buying a new HDMI board. I'm not into soldering so would have to have someone else do it, ship the beast. I'm not looking back. Glad I got the Denon, it works great.
post #8569 of 8818
Seriously? Relevant threads aside, instead of resurrection posts, maybe a look at the http://www.us.onkyo.com/model.cfm?m=...s=Receiver&p=i is due?

scubawoman; you could neighbor with Golffnutt and put together a nice machine.

Does the 1008 decode SACD HDMI bitstream signals?

Sounds like a trick question . I just thought that since scuba went with the Denon, she might prefer the 1008 as its uses Faroudja. However, the http://www.us.onkyo.com/model.cfm?m=...s=Receiver&p=iis Reon based, and represents the best value currently.

I have the Oppo BDP-83 so don't need the AVR to decode SACD and it upscales better if not equal to the Reon. Plus I still have 2 HD-XA2s that have Reon upscaling so I'm covered. No need for an AVR that upscales. I learned my lesson from Onkyo on that one as well as a few others. I'll never touch another Onkyo product again.

Golfnutt sent me a p.m. but I'm already giving the 905 to someone at work who doesn't use HDMI. They are going to get the beast out of my car. I'm done with it.

Sorry your experience with the 905 was bad and that your experience with their tech support was even worse. I hope you have better luck with your new rig.

Hi,

as per title can anyone help me with the baud rate and parity settings etc for my 905. Also, the pin layout. I can't find anything on this at all.

I have tried a fully wired null modem cable. I read that on some gear it will only work if you connect three wires, 2 to 3 : 3 to 2 and 5 to 5 . If I don't find out I will make up one like this and try.

I am trying to connect this to my itach IP2SL RS232 device for use with irule

Thanks for any help,

Graham

I upgraded my 905 main FW a few years ago to 1.08. I just checked this thread and noticed that there is a 1.09 FW.

What was improved over 1.08?

Is this file still available to download in order to do the update yourself?

I called twice and emailed once, got the same response from the "EVER SO IGNORANT" Onkyo support team (that was 3 different people I communicated with) in an attempt to find out the current firmware version, but they wouldn't devulge it. My NR905 has v1.08 / 08223A.

My HDMI went out too just recently, I checked both the MAIN and the SUB to no avail. But then I switch to a new cable and it started working, I watched a movie and went to bed. Next day, I had no HDMI @&8#! AGAIN.

But knew the HDMI board likely had to be good, so I started moving around the cables and low and behold, if I wiggled it a hair a certain way, it would finally give me an output (using a brand new cable). So I will open it up, once I get the service manual(should have been here by now), and let this thread know my findings. I doubt its the connectors themselves since I had the problem on both the SUB and MAIN.

I got the SM from a guy online, but big problem,110 pages are missing. A complete SM should have 314 pages.

I'm waiting to hear back from him.
