Hi, My wife's 15-year old ONKYO TX-810 has developed what seems to be a power problem. It turns itself on and off every few seconds, eventually leading to a total shutdown.
We took it into an electronics shop and they told us that the power supply needed some new solder joints. Not too expensive, so we said "sure".
Then they came back and said it didn't fix the problem -- now we needed a new "Display Circuit Assembly". Onkyo says this part is no longer manufactured.
Now the electronics store says there is nothing they can do, and want us to pay for the original repair.. even though it didn't fix anything!
Can anyone shed some light on this? Is the DCA an actual part? What does it have to do with power issues?
And finally, do you think I should take the receiver to a different shop?
(This shop is listed on ONKYOs site as an authorized service center, so I assumed they were honest. Were my assumtpions wrong?)
Thanks, Michael Hoffman
