PR-SC5507P - No Sound - Out of Warranty - Needs HDMI board replacement

Post  caryspx on Thu Oct 18, 2012 6:18 pm

I have an out of warranty PR-SC5507P that will require an HDMI board replacement, total cost about $400. It is at United Radio (Onkyo recommended repair site) at this time. I understand that this is out of warranty but it is fairly obvious that there is an issue with these boards. This is a fairly recent model and was very expensive when it was new. I've contacted the Onkyo customer support number and was told that this model does not have any issues.
I have an ancient Onkyo receiver, a TX-6500 MK II that I purchased new that is still fully functional and in use today (circa 1981) and has never required repair. This is a model that does not have any issues. There are definitely issues with Onkyo HDMI boards in late model receivers and pre/pros.
I don't expect a new unit, but it would be reasonable to provide some sort of support for a pretty new product with a history of HDMI failures. Something like a discounted/or comped updated HDMI board would be reasonable and I'll cover the labor. To be fair, the agent did offer some sort of discount on shoponkyo if I shipped the broken unit to them, but there is no equivalent product (preamp/ processor) offered.
Even looking at a TX-NR1009 (which has amps I don't want or need) the offer would double by out of pocket expense for this.
I'd appreciate some support but don't know how to proceed.
Regards,
Cary

I spoke to customer service today and they seemed pretty sympathetic to my situation.
I'm hopeful that they can help me out at this time.

I understand that both Onkyo in NJ and I were affected by the recent storm. This did impact the timeline for a response.
The process has appeared to have stalled and its been about a month. I'd like to have this resolved if possible.
Regards,
Cary

I was informed today that Onkyo would cover the HDMI repair. I'd like to thank everyone involved. It's nice Onkyo stands behind their products in this way and I appreciate it.

People considering purchasing a high end Onkyo separate should take note, this support goes beyond what is typically experienced. Not everyone has these sorts of issues, but failures do occur and they sell a high volume of high end equipment. They did not abandon me and I will be inclined to purchase and recommend Onkyo products in the future (as I have in the past).

Regards,
Cary
