Question Onkyo TX-SR606


Novice Member
Hi all,

I have a setup with a receiver Onkyo TX-SR606 connected between my pc and a TV via HDMIs, which was going strong for the past 5 years. A couple of days ago, the receiver stopped producing any sound except for crackling through the speakers; video output is still working. Also, whenever I try to send signals to produce sound (like changing the volume in windows or playing a song), the display LED's start changing randomly (HDMI, DSP, Dolby).
Today I opened the receiver to see if I could find any physical damage and what struck me was a component on the HDMI board (a capacitator?) that looks like it has melted (see the pic). So my amateur diagnosis says that the HDMI board is dead.

Would you agree with this conclusion or do you think that there are other things I should consider?

Thanks a lot

I recently fix this model with no video and audio output. Basically, I had to replace bunch of capacitors. Here is a quick how-to video, although I don't recommend his way when removing those caps.It's easy to rip off soldering pads from the pcb board.
