Sonicview 8000 HD Power Problems Two Green led's and an Orange led

Apr 11

My SonicView 8000HD went dead two days ago. There nothing on the menu screen beside a red light blinking anything you press a button on the remote or on the receiver. At this point I was surprise that in less than a year, this expensive receiver was dead. Ouch.

I jump to do my research on Google, and I found out that it’s very common problem with them. The main problem are four capacitors in the power supply board. I replace C10 and C24. There are rated 10V and 1000uf. I try to replace all four, but my local Radio Shack only had two 35V 1000uf.

The SonicView came to life right away, for my peace of mind. The capacitors were only like $1.29 or so. You can always contact SonicView USA and order a power unit replacement. I believe they are around $30.00 plus shipping. I took the other path, and it only cost me about $4.00 and 15 minutes of my time.  I include a lnk to YouTube.com on  how to remove a capacitor, just in case you have questions.
