Question about Onkyo TX-SR803 Receiver
I have no sound or a popping hissing sound coming out of the speakers.
The problem appeared after a lightning strike hit a nearby pole and
traveled in damaging other electronics.
My question is, it is worth fixing? When I removed the cover off the amp, there appears to be no damage to any of the 8 internal fuses (although I can't see through 2 of the fuses because they are not clear glass).
If this problem + lightning damage = known excessive repairs, I'd prefer to just forget it and buy a new amp. If I could expect $100-$150, then it becomes more of a realistic option.
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
It is common for a short term power surge to open up the internal fuse in the main power transformer. Without testing some components inside the unit, I really can't say for sure whether or not the unit is worth repair. I would suggest that you invest in a detailed repair estimate at an authorized Onkyo service center.
Keep us posted.
