Question about Onkyo TX-SR705 Receiver
I have an Onkyo 805 receiver and it has worked great for the last 6 months. However, yesterday I powered it on with the same Harmony remote that I have always used, and the display on the unit did not turn on. However, the sound still comes through fine. I noticed this when playing ps3 using HDMI, xbox360 using HDMI.
Obviously this causes me great concern, but I'm hoping there is someone who knows about these things and can set me on the path to a resolution.
Thank you for you time and your technical prowess on this!!
Finally one of us found the solution - thanks to cambrian

BTW: My knowledge of electronics is very limited, but nevertheless I could fix the problem. I hope you can do it too.

The good news is that this is a common problem and can probably be fixed with some replacement lamps from Radio Shack. The bad news (you just knew it was coming...) is that the lamps are usually a pain to replace. Remove the top of the case and there should be a plastic cover over the area of the display. It may just snap off by pressing on some tabs. Inside there will be some small light bulbs that are the backlight for the display. If they burn out, it can't be seen unless you shine a bright light in through the front of the display. Carefully unsolder the bulbs and take one to Radio Shack. Look for a 12v bulb of approximately the same size. If you can't find one, buy one of the 12v bulbs with the red or green plastic panel mounts and remove the lamp from its case. Solder in the new lamps and you're good to go!

Tips for a great answer:
"While the Pure Audio listening mode is selected, the video circuitry is turned off and only the HDMI OUT outputs video signals."
