Question about Onkyo Audio & Video Receivers

2 Answers

Hi, I'm looking at a onkyo tx-sr606 receiver on ebay, but its something that has to be repaired. They said the hdmi and component inputs aren't working and the sound cuts in and out. I have experience in repairing different devices, but I've never worked on something like a reciever. So my question is, is this something that might be fixed easily or is it just too complicated to fix? Thanks For the help Kenny

    Is this something that would be expensive to repair.... more than buying a new reciever for about $600

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

While some other areas of a receiver would be relatively easy to repair down component level, sound/video processors are relatively a different breed. More often than not, repairs of this kind involve modular replacement rather than component. Having said this, then foremost factor to be considered would be availability of the board, cost, time element and the repair itself. It would also be to your advantage getting access on a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram.

Would appreciate updates on any development on the project. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

    of course an alternative is to look for a similar brand/model with defects on the amp or power supply section.

It is not easy to fix it is bit complicated . Since the sound cuts in and out you need to check the amplifier and you need to replace transistor which will be bit complicated to repair .

    The repair cost will not be $600 . But you need to consider the life of receiver even if you repair you may face some other problem soon . So it will be better to go with new one for long life .

    But still if you want to repair you need to buy service manual to dismantle your receiver to insert the parts . And you need to check the continuity inside the receiver .

    For further feel free to ask .

Tx-sr606. Signal lost to TV on HDMI Out. Coming in from Component Video or DVD or Game Components. Audio is playing but I get no signal to TV. HDMI Cable is fine. usually have to turn it off or unplug...


Check the most popular solutions.Also check that if you give the receiver some time (in my situation at this moment about 10 minutes) after you turned it on an selection of source.

I just received the new capacitors from a German store and will install them 2 weeks from now.

Rgrds,

Onkyo TX-SR606 HDMI Input


The problem is the hdmi board in the receiver .they are having trouble with the smd regulator and smd capactors that they are using on the board,they have updated the new boards as i have not got any back when replacing with the new boards. I have replaced at least 35 hdmi boards on this model. If you call Onkyo they will tell you that you have a hdmi board bad and take it to an onkyo dealer.

I cannot get video signal from my Samsung p1590 Blu Ray player via HDMI to pass through my Onkyo TX-SR606 AV Receiver. I get video if I connect Blu Ray player directly to TV, and have tried all HDMI ports...


I think this one is for the Onkyo wizards:

I would write them via email here:

However I did find this 2 page hookup manual with nice notes at link listed below that may help you solve the mystery:

(seems you may have to assign the digital input)

http://filedepot.onkyousa.com/Files/QuickHookup/TX-SR606_QSS_En_A.pdf?CFID=918117&CFTOKEN=40624545&jsessionid=f0306ea8a0d68bb60a49102e3e5510576756


Assigning the Digital Input
If there’s no sound, you’ll need to assign the digital inputs as
necessary using the setup menus on the TX-SR606’s display.
If you connect your DVD player to the AV receiver’s COAXIAL 1
DIGITAL IN, and your cable/satellite receiver to the COAXIAL 2
DIGITAL IN, as shown, it’s not necessary to assign the digital input.
The onscreen setup menus appear only on a TV that is
connected to the HDMI OUT. If your TV is connected to the composite video or S-Video MONITOR OUT, or the
COMPONENT VIDEO OUT, use the TX-SR606’s display when changing settings.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Unsure of audio setting using Onkyo TX-SR606 connected to PS3


The PS3 should default to the DOLBY DIGITAL sound output so your ONKYO should be setup to the Digital input, TV logic is a matrix similated multi-channel and I doubt if any PS software is in the DTS audio format, look at your game software disc`s and they will inform you of the audio capabilities.

Ipod Dock connection


The Red, green, blue from this adaptor cable
http://store.apple.com/us/product/MB128LL/B?fnode=MTY1NDA0OQ&mco=MjE4ODM1NQ


go into any of the RGB inputs on the Onkyo

The R/W go into the corresponding inputs for audio, Red and White.

One thing to note,

IF you are running one source RGB like you want to do,
you may have to monitor output the video of the amp RGB to the TV, most of these amps do not like to mix HDMI with anything else.

So If you have one HDMI going out to the TV, this solution will not work. You should look at the manual for the Onkyo regarding what paths can pass at the same time. There is usually a small disclaimer in the HDMI section.

Hope that solves your question.

ONKYO TX-SR606 Single output to TV


Hi there. for your receiver, the only time it can upconvert is when you go out as HDMI. In your current hookup (component out to tv) the signal from your cable (using a composite) will not be able to pass through the component cable. This means you either have to hook up your cable box using a component cable as well or add a composite cable (yellow) from monitor out of the receiver to the tv. Page 22 of the manual will show a diagram of the video signal flow. hope this helps.. ^_^

HDMI video not functioning on a new Onkyo TX-SR606


For me, it was the Monitor Out setting that had defaulted back to Component. I remembered to change the individual inputs to HDMI - but had forgotten to set the Monitor Out to be HDMI.
