My Onkyo 606 receiver was switched ''on'' for 2 days. The receiver panel said ''DVD mode'', though the DVD player itself was off. So the receiver was on for 2 days while dvd player was off. However, the receiver was really really really hot when i noticed this. Has this incident damaged my receiver? How can i check? Thanks,

Re: Onkyo Receiver 606 - Overheated
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Even if the Onkyo was hot but there was adequate ventilation, then there should be no need for concern and it should still be functional Additionally, it has built-in diagnostics and auto-protection system. If on the otherhand the Onkyo TX-SR606 is currently inoperative, the only easy user doable try of a fix is a full reset (if haven't been done):
turn ON the SR606;
press and holtd the VCR/DVR button;
while still pressing on the above button, press the ON/STANDBY button;
release only when "CLEAR" is displayed;
uthe Onkyo would enter Standby mode;
try the unit.
The above is as prescribe in the user's manual and should force the unit to revert back to factory defaults removing glitches, errors in settings & configurations, memories, presets and user preferences. Should the above be not corrective, options then are:
consider a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair if and only if very familiar with electronic components & circuitry, use of a DVM/VOM, a soldering iron/station and safe working practices with high voltages. Access to a Service Manual or at the very least, a schematic diagram would be an advantage (a challenge in itslef);
should you be uncomfortable with a DIY, perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of an authorized Onkyo Service Center (specially if still under warranty) or a qualified professional.
If you are considering a DIY, foremost to check would be standby and logic +5VDC, visual checks for any dried up or have leaked capacitors.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Please determine if the "Audio" button is actually working.... after pressing the audio button, can you still control the DVD, if not then the remote has switched to the Onkyo. Although, this is not 100% conclusive, unless you have a 2nd remote to test the Onkyo with, it provides a sound basis to proceed.
Assuming the remote is transmitting and the IR receiver on the front of the Onkyo is not otherwise blocked, likely faults include the IR receiver, input to the Micro processor, and the Micro processor.
The most probable fault is the IR receiver.
Thank you for using Fixya, and if I can help you further, please let me know.
I just fixed mine with the same problem. Apparently, the HT-R667 and 606 receiver that comes with 6100 has a problem with the HDMI board. Onkyo wanted $500 dollars to fix it, costed me $16.
Here's how to fix it.
and the youtube vid:
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.
When this happens and you just see the input label try to press the power button on the front of the cable box and see if it brings the picture up. If this does produce the picture then it is a good possibility that something is interfering with the remote communicating with the cable box. I don't know if you have it contained in an entertainment center or how you have placed your equipment but if there is glass try to clean it and also wipe down the front of the cable box and make sure there is an unobstructed view of the front of the cable box. Good Luck.
Again, onkyo has downloadable cd software (its free) that you run threw cd player via fiber optics that will fix the issue. onkyo.com,choose region,click support at the bottom of page find Download Center or Software Downloads/Updates: for info. With onkyo its usually a simple chip issue. If that fails , find contact support , e-mail them your issue and simply ask for a downloadable repair disc- I did.
There is no "self fix" your receiver is HDMI version 1.1, 1.2, or 1.2a. Has a board problem from HDMI. It can be repaired and upgraded to version 1.3b which is the current format that seems to work in all scenerios. If your receiver is still under warranty the fix is N/C. If not, call Onkyo Customer support, alot of AV receivers pre 09' have this same issue and if you raise enough eyebrows, you may be able to get it done at N/C. I know it's not what you want to hear, but that's what's happening to alot of people! Hope this helps
are you using HDMI cables or component. First I would try unplugging the composite and component video cables while the receiver is off. Plug them back in and turn it back on. If that does'nt work try setting the receiver to factory default and redo the settings. You can find how to reset to default in your user manual.
