    Is it worth it to fix or even try to figure out and replace a part?

    My Onkyo receiver (HT-R500) up and died. It cut off and i was not fast enough and the kids turned it back on. I saw a small blue flash and then no more turning on.


    It an older model easy enough to figure out what part? fix it or just suck it up and get a new one. If i don't fix it what are the options feel bad just throwing it away.

    Usually a blue flash means a cap blew. Usually when a cap blows it chars everything around it. Wouldn't hurt to leave it unplugged for 24hrs, remove the cover.

    If a cap blew and didn't char its board(more than likely the power supply), sure.

    I wouldn't pay to fix it though. Only if you are good with soldering.
