Question about Onkyo TX-DS595 Receiver
I have an Onkyo DS595 A/V receiver, purchased in 2003. I have a VCR, video iPod, and DVD connected to V1, V2, and DVD respectively. Video out (using RCA) goes to a TV set up as a monitor. Recently, video output from the receiver becomes distorted (warped output, fuzz) from all the video devices. Driving the TV directly from VCR or DVD works fine (no distortion). I have replaced the RCA output to the TV with several different patch cords but the problem recurs. Power cycling the receiver can sometimes correct the problem. Is this conclusively a h/w failure? Anything I can do short of taking it to a shop? If not, what's the likely cost of the repair?
This is probably a problem of the relays - yes, there are small relays inside to switch the video in/output.
In this case i think the contacts are the problem. you cant open the relays, so they have to be replaced...
better solution: use a better videostandard such as component or hdmi - do not use the receiver to switch the videosignals, use only for sound...
