Has anybody attempted to fix a dead HDMI board on the Denon AVR-3311CI
It was 2001 or so when I first wondered onto the AVS Forum. Double income, no kids. Now it's 1.5 incomes and 2 kids, so I don't get here much. Thanks to a failed HDMI board on my Denon AVR-3311CI, I'm back. Had I paid attention, I would have seen that these things fail all the time...'twas a surprise for me the other night.
I pulled the receiver out and opened it up. The top board handles the HDMI connections. Most of the components are SMT, but there a few small electrolytic caps, plus a few aluminum caps. 3 years ago I fixed my LG plasma when its power supply caps crapped out, and just over the weekend I fixed my brother-in-laws Sammy LCD due to the same problem.
Has anybody pulled the caps off the HDMI board and tested their function? Could I be "lucky" enough that the caps (really, the only components I can service myself) have crapped out?
Plan B: Buy a Yamaha receiver. I had an Onkyo before this Denon...it died. Seems Yamaha delivers as far as quality. Meanwhile, my 1985 Adcom GFA-535 keeps on rockin'.
