Onkyo TX SR607 Remote Sensor Not Working


Novice Member
I have the above mentioned receiver whose remote sensor has gone bad. I have tried resetting the remote and calibrating with the receiver, changing remote batteries, as well as different remotes. None of that has worked which makes me believe that the sensor has gone bad. I don't even see a light on the front.

I asked Best Buy, who is the authorized dealer and they charge $85 just to take a look. I don't want to spend $100-$150 if I can get a new one for $300-$400.

Is it fixable at home? I am not too handy and have not opened a receiver ever.

Please recommend some less expensive options.

If nothing works I might sell it as-is, but since everything else is working I am happy with the receiver.
