The analog audio input on my Onkyo SC-5507 has died and just curious to know if anyone else has had a similar problem. Also, curious to know if anyone has a ball park figure of how much it cost to fix something like that. When all is said and then, perhaps it's an omen to move on to another processor.


Thanks

I just did a search on google and it appears that you don't have an inexpensive unit... I would think that it might be worth fixing or at least taking it to a shop to see what they would charge to fix it.

More information is needed to say if it would be worth repairing or not. What is the unit doing if it is a HDMI board issue then there is a vender that sells rebuilt ones on eBay.

The major issue I seen with those units is the IDE cable and that is a cheap fix. The logic board may have flex that over time can start to conduct. There is ways that this can be fixed and it is not that costly.

I had my HDMI board fixed on my 1007 from the company on eBay. If I am remembering correctly, I think the 5507 was a unit he could not fix. I had a friend check into it when his unit's audio dropped out.

Hopefully your unit can fixed inexpensively.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to post. After a few phone calls, I got very lucky and Onkyo has allowed me to have an out of warranty service fix. It's at the shop now and I'm hoping that it won't take too long. :praying:

Needless to say, I'm a very happy Onkyo customer. :yay2:

I'm posting this hoping that it may help someone else who may have this problem in the future although I doubt that anyone will be this stupid. :duh:

I got my unit back and discovered it was not a hardware failure. At first I found it hard to believe since I was sure that I checked every possible setting. It turned out to be something available only through the remote and I should have remembered that from when I set this thing up four years ago. :eek:lddude:

The button is marked audio and allows you to set the priorities of the digital, analog and multi-channel signals. I am very happy to have the unit back, but boy do I feel dumb. My only consolation is that Onkyo tech support never mentioned this at all when I was investigating the problem. Live and learn, I guess.
