It had been working fine when about a week and a half ago it suddenly started showing the video at about every 10th frame with no sound. The pictures it showed were intact without any satellite breakup or weather fade, but would jump from 1 frame to approximately 10 frames later, then the next approximately 10 frames later and so on. No sound whatsoever. I tried a soft restart by turning the receiver off for several minutes without any improvement. Then I tried a hard reset by unplugging the receiver for approximately 15 minutes. No improvement. I switched out that receiver for another one which worked fine. Video and audio normal. It's the receiver. Any ideas? I really liked that receiver.

Re: Satellite Receiver Malfunction
Go into the menu and check the signal strenth to see if its going up and down or if its a stead as a rock. I have seen this problem be the reciver as I was a satillite contractor for 5 years in the past and I have installed 1000's. I have also seen your poblem be a small brance in the distance cause the freezing, also a bad connector from the lnb on the dish to the multiswitch, or a bad connector on the back of the reciver or even a pinch in the wire but the most common thing I have found would be a loose connection on the back of the reciver with the fitting wasent screwed on all the way.. If the signal is rock steady, the reciver will need to be replaced as the recivers dont pay to be repaired. good Luck

The first thing to find out is what trouble code the car's computer is storing. The check engine light tells you that there is a code available to enable you to home in on the trouble. If the car will not move, follow the procedure in here, p296, by using a short bit of wire to connect terminals TE1 and E1 in Relay Block 5 under the hood.
I’m writing this report to provide insight into a common Okyo issue.When my Onkyo receiver began to malfunction my first response was to search the web for answers.What I fond was conflicting information. While all system issue may be unique, I hope this report shed some light on the subject.
System Breakdown: Receiver: Onkyo TX-SR606 7.1 Channel Home Theater Receiver (Black)
TV: Samsung - LN52A750 - 52" LCD TV - 1080p
Component 1: XBOX 360 Elite
Component 2: PS3 120GB
Cables:Mediabridge Ultra Series - 10ft High Speed HDMI Cable - Version 1.3 Category 2 - 1080p - Blu-Ray - PS3 - W/ Nylon Sleeve Issue: When I first setup my Onkyo receiver it worked perfectly.Over time, my TV would display “Searching for Signal”.After about a few minutes the receiver would detect the XBOX 360 and work fine.At first it was no big deal until the problem progressed. The receiver began to take longer and longer to detect the signal from the XBOX 360.Finally it would take up to 30 minutes or would not detect a signal at all. Finally I went through the process of changing out the HDMI cables and switching ports.This did not work, so I call Onkyo.They walked me through a reset process that did not work.Finally they recommended that I take it to an approved Onkyo repair shop. Lucky for me there is a repair shop in the suburbs of Chicago about an hours drive from my location.There are not many approved Onkyo repair shops. Most people would have to ship their receiver to another state. I took the receiver to the repair shop.They seem to have a nice little scam going on… Here is the scam.. They tell you there is a 3 to 4 week wait time (or longer) until they can even look at your receiver! BUT, if you want to put it on the “Priority List” you can pay a $30 non refundable fee not covered by your warranty.Then you would only have to wait about a week.Tell me, who would not op for the priority list when your entire entertainment system is managed by the receiver?!?!?So I payed the $30.About 4 days later I get a call from the repairman.He says, all the HDMI ports work but they don’t have an XBOX 360 to hook it up to.So he can’t validate the problem.After arguing with him for an hour and listening to him cry about how crapy Onkyo receivers are and how hard the company is to work with, he agreed to do some research into the problem.I told him many times, simply look on the internet many people are having the same problem.Onkyo has to know something about this. Finally about a week later I get a call from the repair guy.He says he thinks he knows what the problem is.He has to order some capacitors and I could pay $45 for priority shipping.Umm wait one minute, I already paid $30 for priority service now you want me to pay more for shipping?No thank you!Over time I simply rewired my system to work without the receiver and to tell you the truth I almost forgot about the receiver.Finally I got a call from the repair shop about 2 months later saying I could come pick up my receiver.I talked to the repairman. He said the following… Solution: There are 4 capacitors that malfunction over time.It’s a common problem with Onkyo receivers. When the capacitors begin to malfunction you get intermittent signal response until it does not work. He could not explain why the cable still worked (everything was hooked up with HDMI cables). If you are experiencing this problem. I hope this helps save some time switching out cables and guessing why your system is not working. - Antious
You can try taking apart the console and cleaning the connections for the sholder buttons. You also should be making sure they are springy and connect to the board properly. The ones that I have repaired with this problem have all been cleanings. You can find video disasembly tutorials by googling around with "take apart ds." If this is a DS-Lite, then just follow the same instructions but google DS-Lite instead of DS.
