Some models of Onkyo had problems with memory chips on the DSP boards (digital processing). Replacing these chips usually resolved the problem. These chips are surface mounted and are not the easiest to replace. This should be done by a trained tech. Expect this type of repair to run about $150-$200.

Technics SU-G91... clipped out @ high volume. Disassembled, sleaned and applied new grease to heat sinks. Amp worked great for a while, clipped out and now occasionally will not light up the front dis


First off, why do you drive the amp into clipping? It's not good for amp, nor your Klipsch. We won't even mention the terrible load that Klipsch in parallel presents to your amplifier, nor the distortion. I would suggest to you, that the amp goes into thermal overload. Trying turning it down by 20-30db, and see if it stays on-line. It can be fixed, if turning it down doesn't help, it can be repaired, but not inexpensively.

Onkyo tx-nr808 sound stopped working


These units have a common problem with the firmware not being able to load correctly. Only way to really fix it is to replace the digital board - really expensive repair. Can sometimes be fixed by reheating Q3001, but this doesn't always work.

I have an Onkyo TX-DS797 it is about 6 yrs old


These units *(if I remember correctly) had a problem with a memory IC in the surround porcessing section that would show up initially as popping and would eventually end up with no sound at all. This is a straightforward repair that involves replacing the IC with a new one (different manufacturer). The problem is that this is a surface mounted IC and is difficult to replace without damaging the underlying PC board. This is NOT a DYI repair. Have this unit checked by an authorized Onkyo service center.

It needs service. Not worth repair though.

TX-SR803 with no sound or popping hissing on any input


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.

ONKYO TX-DS939 (sound and heat/fan issues)


This sounds like the amp is seeing too small an impedence load. In other words, the amp is expecting to see an 8ohm load and is being presented a 4 or 2 ohm load. This will force the amp to work really hard and generate excessive heat. Does the amp generate sound at all? ever? If not, then you probable have a situation with high frequency oscuillations that you can not hear. This means that the amp is sending out a lot of power to the speakers that the crossovers are shunting to ground. Without seeing the output of the amp with a scope, I can not confirm this. This is not a problem that will be solved remotely. Bring the unit to a shop and request that the output be examined using a scope to check the waveforms. I suspect that a bad feedback look internally is causing the generation of the high frequency signals.

Keep us posted.

Distorted right channel


There is a problem in the pre-amp section of the receiver. This is most likely a bad transistor. FIgure on about $5-$15 for parts for this repair.

Amp Protection Mode


no, your output transistors maybe 2 of them are gone or the small power supply that feeds the other circuitry has become defective.
