HDMI Start up Problem in Onkyo TX-NR609


I bought an Onkyo TX-NR609 from Amazon Germany in January, 2012. It is connected to Bose Acoustimass 10, 5.1 speaker. It has worked until now.

Last week, I suddenly found that the Onkyo had no HDMI output from its HDMI inputs ( Tata Sky HD and Dune BD Prime 3.0, though I could get an ouput via its composite port.

I called Onkyo Office in Chennai and they hummed and hawed, seemingly reluctant to help. They said the HDMI port designed for use in Europe would fail in India. They quoted a approximate price of Rs.20000 ( yes, 20K) to repair the unit, which ight take 3-4 weeks or more.

Anyway, I did a factory re-set (Firmware xxxx.8106) and am glad to report that it works fine.

So, if anyone else has similar problem, try the same.

Cheers,
mpmohan

Anything related to hdmi and avr is costly. If no warranty prepare for the worst. My recent avr servicing cost me 5K which includes shipping to service center. I have received it back, but didn't get time to test.

HDMI boards are available in ebay and they should be compatible. Repair Service for Onkyo TX NR609 HDMI Board | eBay

Re: HDMI Start up Problem in Onkyo TX-NR609

I own two Onkyo AVRs': TX-SR606 and TX-NR609, and both their HDMI boards failed.

I short-circuit the TX-SR606 HDMI board while connecting it to my notebook while both units were powered on. The TX-NR609 simply went bad while setting up the HDMI menu for ARC with my Panasonic XT50TH. Luckily mine was covered in the 3-year warranty period.

I read in several forums that Onkyo's HDMI boards ocassionally fail. Somebody in the US has also posted an article on Youtube regarding HDMI board repairs. Good idea if the board goes bad again afetr the warranty.
